In New York, Changing Of Locks Is As Regular A Ritual As Changing Of The Guards

New York’s semi-official slogan might be “fuhgeddaboutit.” But when it comes to keeping your family and possessions safe, security is not something the borough’s nearly 2 million residents forget about or take lightly. Often that security begins with the locks in their home. This is particularly important in a region known for its high rental rates.

In fact, some 69 percent of New Yorkers rent rather than own their homes. This is more than a fun fact: high rental areas also imply a high occupancy turnover. In short, failure to frequently change your locks (from the building standard) means that hundreds of former tenants might have copies of your keys. Then, assume each former tennant makes at least three copies and gives those keys out to their friends and family; maybe even friends of friends are the happy recipients. What was once an extra key or two hanging unused on someone’s key holder in the Upper West Side has become a key coping virus of sorts. It’s enough to frazzle the nerves of even the toughest New Yorker.
