What it takes to construct a master key system

Master key systems can be extremely complex, involving multiple master, grand master, and sub master keys. What is the difference between a lock that has been master keyed and one that has not? The difference is that a master keyed lock will possess a master pin between each driver and key pin within the locking cylinder. 

Pins are tiny oval-like objects found underneath the springs. The Springs are located within the locking cylinder that the key brushes against when it is entered. You should not be too concerned about the security of your property after a master key system is done, as it enhances security.

A professional who is certified, will have the knowledge and ability to complete the job properly. A professional such as NorthWest Locksmith Portland will possess the correct tools and knowledge in order to add the additional pins into the locking cylinder. Additionally, a professional commercial locksmith will be able to create new keys that will match the new locking cylinder.
