Can a Tenant Change the Locks in Maine?

This question is about Maine Landlord Tenant Rights

Maine tenants can change their own locks, but the landlord is allowed to break into the rental property using reasonable force if tenants don’t provide copies of any new keys within 48 hours of the lock change. This time limit is extended to 72 hours when the lock change takes place for reasons of domestic abuse.
