There are so many choices to make when you’re ready to update the locks on your home. You may wonder which locks are the most secure, or whether you can keep your current hardware and simply do a rekey. You may also wonder who you should call to do your home rekey or lock installation in Huntington Beach. A good locksmith can help you decide if it’s time to upgrade your locks, or if you can save some money by repairing and rekeying your existing locks.

Your first important decision is finding a licensed, trained locksmith in Huntington Beach or Orange County. Because locksmithing is a competitive field, some of our customers have shared with us thei...

Remember what momma says: 'If it sounds too good to be true, it most likely is!'


There's a bunch of ads out there claiming the best rates around. I've seen "$15 Locksmith," "$19 Locksmith," "We'll beat any price," and so on. Put these claims to the test by doing these three important things:

  1. The MOST IMPORTANT thing to ask a locksmith is if they are local. Save yourself the frustration of waiting hours for a locksmith to show up. Even ask if they can show up in less than 20 minutes.

  2. Be ready to give the locksmith a few important details like how many cylinders (keyholes) need to be rekeyed, or if you are residential or commercial. If you ar...

The two major door hardware brands, whether you go to Home Depot, Lowes, or even Ace Hardware, are Schlage and Kwikset. Each brand has its own line of expensive and nicer styles or the alternative cheap and basic product lines. While you have several tiers of quality and price, choices of color, and even discounted sets, the key difference (pun intended) between Schlage and Kwikset is in one small detail: the keyway.


The keyway is the profile shape of the key and, to match, the shape of the key hole. A Kwikset lock’s key hole is a series of right angles that form its unique keyway. A Schlage lock’s key hole has a diagonal angle that makes its...

I was at a job yesterday where my new client talked about how much they liked their previous locksmith. They said that their locksmith was really fast and had good pricing. As I was taking apart the locks in preparation to rekey, I realized why this locksmith was so fast; he was only doing half the job! This locksmith was taking shortcuts at the risk of his client’s security. I made sure my client was aware and then I took an extra half-hour adding back pieces that were missing from the locks and making sure that they functioned how they were manufactured to function with their intended level of security.


Some locksmiths are willing to take shortcu...

You just walked out of your house and as you approached your car and reached into your pocket, you realized; “I forgot my keys!” You locked the door behind you and your windows are securely fastened shut because of the weather. You wish that you had followed your instinct to hide or give a friend a spare key. You need someone to bail you out this time. It’s time to call a locksmith.


This are horrible images, I know. Don’t beat yourself up. Getting locked out or losing keys is very common and happens to the best of us. Life gets busy and we get caught up in heavy thoughts as we are leaving to go to work. Or, sometimes we are just out havin...

Huntington Beach is a great place to live, but the weather is harsh on both metal and grease. The humid, salty air is especially rough on the hardware of your doors causing sticking, grinding and malfunction.


You may be able to accept the eroded cosmetics of your locks but if your locks don’t work, your security may work against you or fail completely.


Don’t live with grinding, sticky locks another day. Call NuKey Locksmith and we will lubricate and repair the mechanics of your locks while maintaining your security. Please call today for a quote!

Re-key /ri’kē/ verb: Reconfigure the pins of a lock to work with a different key code.

If you live in, or near, Huntington Beach, NuKey Residential Locksmith is your neighbor. As your neighbor, we want to offer you the best and most honest locksmith services available in town.


Why is it important to call a local locksmith? Have you seen the ads for locksmith services that seem too good to be true? My parents always taught me that if it seems too good to be true, then it most likely is! $19, $25, or even $30 locksmith ads are designed to get you to make the call to inquire about further details. See my post, $19 locksmith scams, for more details on that subject. These locksmith directory-type services charge fees that will i...

It’s like starting fresh without the expensive trip to your local hardware store to buy all new locks!

I had a client call NuKey Residential Locksmith to ask for a quote. After I explained our affordable $99 re-key flat rate, the client told me that our price is way more reasonable than any of the locksmiths that she had called and she wanted to know why. She continued her search for more quotes and called me again 15 minutes later to explain that the other locksmiths came up with some funny, made-up reasons to not use NuKey. She decided to save $100 and scheduled her re-key with us.


NuKey Residential Locksmith isn’t in business to fight over customers or to make up funny reasons to not use the other guys. Your reasons to use NuKey are simple:...
