Reduce Costs with the turn of a key
Simply turn a step change key to change the affected locks in seconds. InstaKey’s user-rekeyable cores are a simple, cost-effective alternative to locksmith callouts or managing a core swap program. You don’t have to purchase extra cores and keys or wait for a locksmith to change the locks for you. Depending on your key system design, there are up to 12 rekeys available. Just purchase the next set of keys in a Rekeying Kit instead of spending hundreds or thousands of dollars on additional locks and locksmith services.
Master Key System? No problem
When an InstaKey master key is lost or stolen, simply rekey all locks at the master level and issue new master keys. There is no need to change or distribute any of the lower level keys as they are unaffected, becoming extremely cost-effective. Rekeys are designed to only change the key level of the breached key, not all keys in the system.
How the Rekey Works
Is it magic? No. Just genius design. Our patented technology allows authorized personnel to rekey locks by simply inserting and turning a step change key 180 degrees. That’s it. There’s nothing to disassemble, no one to call and no tools are necessary.
Lock Care Recommendation
Avoid using liquid lubricants or solvents in locks as they can lead to debris accumulation and corrosion, potentially degrading lock operation and functionality.
Each InstaKey Rekeying Kit contains a small bottle of dry graphite lubricant designed for metal-to-metal contact. Use it before each rekey and it will help prolong the life of your locks.
