Master Key Systems

Fitting your home or business with a master key system is an excellent idea to improve the ease of access for your employees. Shuffling around your key chain to find the right key, then trying to enter the wrong key to the lock is a frustration you and your employees don’t need in your lives.

Master Key Locks

These systems enable you to reduce the number of keys you need to access the low-security areas of your home and business to a single key for every door. This system tightens your security while increasing convenience in your operations.

Using master keys, you can allow your employees to access certain areas of the business, such as the front door, kitchen, break room and filing room, while keeping other areas secure, such as your office and filing room.

Master keys also allow you to entrust keys to every door to security guards or authorized individuals – such as your business partner, giving them unfettered access to every room in the building.

At Dawn and the Lock, we specialize the rekey of a variety of different locks and high-security locks, from all the major brands, including:

  • Kwikset
  • Mul-T-Lock
  • Schlage
  • Master Lock
  • Corbin and Russwin
  • Arrow
  • Sargent
  • Baldwin
  • Kaba
  • Medeco
  • Falcon

Some lock brands are more challenging to rekey to a master system than others and may affect the time spent on the job, and the parts needed to complete the master key cylinder. Before you call our offices to arrange a rekey by one of our professional locksmiths, take a minute to assess your locks.

We recommend you take pictures of all of your locks you need to rekey and email them to us for inspection beforehand. Armed with this information, we can swiftly rekey your entire premises with a master key system.

Where to Use Master Keys?

To have all of your locks on a master key system, you need to change all the keyways. Some doors with multiple keyways may require us to change out some of the hardware to make everything compatible.

Our team of professional locksmiths advises you on which equipment you’ll need to set up a master key system and present you with low, medium, or high-security options for your application.

Some of the more common applications for master keys include:

  • Master key system for apartment building – Landlords.
  • Housekeeping services.
  • Breakrooms and kitchens.
  • Training and conference rooms.
  • Administration and file rooms.
  • Exam rooms in universities and colleges.
  • Utility rooms, including electrical boxes, plumbing access.
  • Server rooms.
  • Human Resource file rooms.

Master Key Vs. Key Duplication​

Comparing master keys and key duplication is like comparing night and day. While key cutting is okay for residential homes, it’s not the optimal solution for your business. A business uses their locks far more often than a residence.

During key duplication, your locksmith may cut multiple keys at once, creating tiny differences in the profile of the key. These errors result in the key sticking in the lock, as it doesn’t engage all of the tumblers. Over time, this error will degrade the performance of the lock and force it to fail – and that’s the last thing any business owner needs to happen at their offices.

Master keys produce an identical clone of the original key that correctly engages the tumblers, resulting in longer lock life.

I should have called them first. Made the mistake of using TaskRabbit to install a door knob lock. He took about 45 minutes to install but it turns out the lock was not secured. I locked myself in and couldn’t get out of my place. Called this locksmith who was very quick in response, great communication and was able to install within 20 minutes. Highly recommend this locksmith and will encourage anyone I know to use them.
