Professional Residential Locksmith Services in Chicago, IL
We understand what Frank Sinatra meant when he sang that Chicago was his kind of town. The Windy City is rich with history and the home of 16 sports teams, world-renowned restaurants, The Art Institute, theaters, shopping, and 26 miles of beaches along Lake Michigan.
Living in a city with nearly 3 million residents, the people of Chicago know that securing their homes is a top priority. Is it time for you to change your home locks? If so, Mr. Rekey has the experience and knowledge you want in a locksmith. We have been servicing locks for more than 20 years and stand behind our work with a 100% Lifetime Workmanship Guarantee.
Your Home Lock Options
You have two options when changing the locks on your Chicago home, and both are equally secure. You can opt for a full lock replacement with all new hardware or choose to rekey your existing locks. Rekeying means that, instead of buying and installing new locks, Mr. Rekey reconfigures your current ones and cuts new keys to match the new lock configuration. Your old keys are rendered useless, and your old locks are just as secure as if they were brand new.
If you choose to rekey your locks, you save the time and cost of installing new hardware. That gives you the freedom to use the money you save to go root on the Cubs at Wrigley Field, shop the boutiques on Navy Pier, or visit the birthplace of improvisational comedy at Second City. Frank Sinatra was right; Chicago truly is our kind of town.

Chicago, IL Locksmith Reviews
DELIVERED! I needed our private mailbox lock fixed - it was installed in 1992 so I was not expecting a "fix" but rather to be told the entire box would need to be replaced - another locksmith had already come out to look & apparently the part I needed was on backorder indefinitely...his solution was to replace everything. MR. REKEY - had my part on the truck & 20 minutes later I had new keys in hand!!
Sam was great, friendly & professional. I would recommend him & suggest you ask for him.
Gerald did a great job. Super professional and efficient. I would definitely call these guys again!

Q&A: Thinking Outside the Locks®
Q: Does Mr. Rekey install new locks too?
A: Yes. We are a full-service residential locksmith. We’ll customize your service package to fit your needs.
Q: How do I know that the locksmith is actually from Mr. Rekey?
A: Your Mr. Rekey technician will arrive at your house at the scheduled time in a clearly marked Mr. Rekey van and uniform.
Q: Can I have all my locks rekeyed to the same key?
A: Yes, most of the time. To know for sure, insert your key into each lock. If the key goes in fully, then we can rekey that lock to the same key as the others.
Illinois Landlord & Tenant Act Compliance
- Do your rental property practices line up with what is required of landlords in Cook County?
- Are you in the habit of rekeying or changing locks between every tenant?
If your answer to either of these questions is “no”, then please call us at (312) 607-5763. Mr. Rekey Locksmith technicians will ensure you are in compliance with the Illinois Landlord & Tenant Act and provide accurate documentation of all services provided.
Why Do I Need to Rekey Locks Between Tenants?
Landlords are required by law to rekey exterior home locks on or prior to the turnover date between every tenant. The turnover date is the day on which a new tenant begins occupancy of a property, and Cook County mandates that this is the day by which the landlord must rekey the property. It also states that landlords will be held 100 percent financially liable for any break-in that may occur if they fail to rekey between tenants and an old key is used to obtain entry to the new tenant’s rented property.
