Here, we carry many sets and pinning kits that are compatible across the board, from specific automotive models to residential locks.

What is a Pinning Kit?

Pinning Kits is a collection of different lock pins. Various shapes and sizes, compatible with particular or multiple locks, are available in one case. Pinning Kits help in the process of rekeying your older locks into new ones. Different locks require specific sets of lock pins, and having a variety of lock pins at hand keeps you equipped for rekeying tasks. 


What is a Pinning Kit used for?

The primary purpose of having a whole set of various lock pins or pinning kits is for it to be used to rekey a lock cylinder. Lock cylinders, when dissected, have lock pin holes inside. These pins are uniquely placed to only operate in a specific type of key. As you remove and change the lock pins inside, you will also change the pattern, allowing the new key to work and replace the old ones.


When Should You Rekey Your Locks?

Pinning Kits are specifically used to change or adjust the workings of your existing lock cylinders. There are plenty of reasons for rekeying your locks, whether for safety, protection, or emergency. Here are some of the most common reasons to rekey your locks.


  • Lost Keys - Losing keys is a common occurrence, and one of the best courses of action is rekeying. This minimizes the risk of intruders using your lost keys and keeps you safely secured, knowing that your locks are changed.
  • Updating Keys - Updating your keys from time to time is also a valid reason for changing locks. Whether you're moving to a new home or have pretty old locks that need changing, pinning kits would be handy for updating your lock and keys.
  • Damaged Locks - Daily wear and tear is also a huge reason for damaged or faulty locks. Instead of replacing the whole lock, which could cost you more, a better and cheaper solution is the change lock pins or rekey.
