Fast, reliable & fixed prices.


I want to replace my lock

In various situations it is advisable to replace the lock of your front door or exterior door. When you have just moved places, it is advisable to replace all locks, because you can almost never be sure that additional keys have been created in the past. It is a scary thought that an old resident still has a key to your home. Another reason to have your lock replaced would be that your lock is outdated or even defective. In this case you are forced to have a new lock installed. Finally, replacing locks is also part of burglary prevention. In this situation you choose, after consultation with a certified locksmith, to replace your lock with a lock that offers more security.

Lock replacement cost

The cost of replacing a lock varies widely. The price of replacing a lock depends, among other things, on the type of lock, the SKG score of the lock and the cylinder size.

Type of locks

Three types of cylinder locks can be distinguished.

  • Mortise lock: this most common lock is mounted in the door
  • Multi-point lock: this type of mortise lock has multiple closing points and offers a higher level of security
  • Rim lock: this outdated type of lock is mounted on the inside of the door

In addition to cylinder locks, there are also pin locks. This type of lock works with metal pins instead of a cylinder. The key of a pin lock has four teeth and is cross-shaped.

SKG quality mark

Most locks have the SKG quality mark of the Stichting Kwaliteit Gevelbouw. This quality mark has a star-based rating system:

  • 1 star: standard burglar-resistant lock
  • 2 stars: heavily burglar-resistant locks
  • 3 stars: the lock, hinges, cylinder and door offer sufficient resistance to burglary

Cylinder size

The size of the cylinder is also an important cost factor when replacing a lock. The size of the cylinder depends on the thickness of the door. Cylinder sizes have an outside size and an inside size. The standard size is 30mm, but this can go up to 70mm, for example. The cost of replacing your lock is therefore higher with a thicker door.
