"He was on time and performed all of the tasks required. He even tried to help us save money by suggesting to have us supply our own lock, and offered to waive the" service fee if he needed to come back. We were very pleased with the service.

-Adam T.

"He gave me a price, stuck with it, did the job well. He ran into some problems based on what the prior owner had done, so it took him longer, but he did not complain. Very porfessional

Key making


If you're locked out of your home or car, a locksmith can be your lifeline - but make sure you hire a reputable one.

Have you lost track of who has copies of your keys? Do you want to improve your home security? A professional locksmith can help.

Hands picking a lock

When it comes to having any sort of lock work done on your home or business, there’s no substitute for hiring a qualified, reputable locksmith.

A reputable locksmith can check your locks to ensure they’re in proper working order, and add security accessories to help keep you and your belongings safe.

Deadbolt lock

Picking the wrong locksmith could lead to price gouging. One-forth of the respondents of a recent poll said they were overcharged when hiring locksmiths.

In addition to the roughly $100-200 for the lockset itself, I would expect from $50-100 range (depending on your local labor costs) by a locksmith, ASSUMING you get a lockset that uses the existing door and frame lockset holes - should only take about 15-30 minutes in that case. Could run into maybe $100 more for a carpenter or the locksmith to fill and glue the existing holes and then drill new ones if lock does not fit the existing (probably "standard" hole spacing and setback - or maybe $200-300 more for carpenter to put in entirely new striker side trim and paint to match if you don't like the looks of the filled holes.
I understand your concern - but locksmiths are criminal record vetted and bonded pretty well, so not a major risk there. Unless you bought the deadbolt and entry lockset as a boxed set - both keyed the same - it would be normal for him to rekey so they use the same key. People do not want to have to fumble with two different keys to get in, so he probably just did not think to ask if you wanted them the same. Is it also possible he was keying to match a back or garage door lock too so all your entry doors use the same key ? A large portion of their work is rekeying locks after change of tenants or owners, or changing out a worn out lockset, so that would be second nature to him to do it - I don't personally think you have a high risk from this, unless perhaps you live in a very upscale house and had a lot of valuables laying around that he could see while working. If that $66 million Van Gogh painting you bought yesterday was leaning against the entry wall waiting to be hung, then I might be a bit concerned - otherwise not.

The employee from arrived when scheduled and quickly began working. The work was completed in a timely fashion and professionally. When the need arises for a locksmith we will not hesitate to call upon and Lock.
- Brad J.

Locksmith arrived on time and was able to identify the problem and fix it quickly. The lock had been installed incorrectly. The locksmith was friendly, capable, and professional.

It was important to me to have all the door locks in my house keyed the same. The lock with the problem had not worked properly since it was installed. I took ...More the opportunity to have a locksmith work on it through an Angie's List Big Deal. No problems now thanks to and Lock.
- Martha B.

Had some stuck file draws and uncooperative external doors.
Looked into reducing the number of external keys needed.
He told us what set ups could be easily done. Completed everything in about 2 hours.
Rates reasonable. Very knowledgeable
- John B.

This is a tricky installation for a person because a hole is drilled on one side of the door only then chiseled out. The other side remains closed. However, any good locksmith should be able to do it. I have installed many deadbolts but I didn't want to try this. That is why I hired a professional. He drilled right through ...More the door. Had to patch the other side. Not pretty.
- James G.

..A cheerful, pleasant man who knew more than one way to handle being locked out. He tried those first. This was at my sons condominium, which is right across the parking lot from mine. They do not use the home very often, but make it available to family and good friends who are visiting Asheville. On this particular evening it was my daughter and ...More two granddaughters, so we were relieved and grateful.

Perfect. Within 2 days of my initiating the transaction/service, the work had been completed Punctual, courteous, professional. The job was done in approx. one hour, and everything works perfectly. Highly recommend and will utilize their services again when the need arises.

Used a coupon from Angie's list ($50 service for $30). They called the next day to schedule an appointment and give me a time window. They called just before the scheduled appointment to let me know they had run into a problem at an earlier appointment and would like to reschedule for the next day, which was fine with me. They called the following ...More day and showed up right on time. They re-keyed 3 locks, made me 4 keys for the locks, tested the locks and keys and finished the job promptly.
- Andrew P.

I called on Friday night and ask if he could come out on Saturday and repair my broken lock. He said that he would and requested that I email a photo of the door lock. The email photo helped him perfectly match the lock. He came out Saturday afternoon and replaced the lock with an exact color match. The door was always a problem to lock. He adjusted ...More the door so that the new lock works easily. The work was done timely and was reasonably priced. I am very pleased at how easily my door locks. I highly recommend this company and would use them again.
