The lock is the most important part of the door, and therefore, the safest in order to avoid access to strangers. The locks have evolved over the years, just like the techniques of thieves. Therefore we always recommend having a last generation lock at home, so you can stop whoever wants to try.
Change the lock does not have to be done only if we lose or the keys have been stolen, we must bear in mind that security locks are a safe bet, as they guarantee immunity against the leading theft techniques, including the famous bumping which still in use because more than half of the locks installed in Mallorca are vulnerable. With this method, any thief can enter to the house in a couple of minutes, without trace in the lock, and the most important, without alerting anyone, as they enter with a couple of blows.
A high-end lock, for example, has some springs and pin systems inside that prevent bumping, so this avoid someone to enter using this way. Another reason why we recommend a lock changing is the key. Many of the old keys can be copied easily, there are even locks that can be opened with "Magic keys", so avoid this is very important.
