" was amazing. From the point of my first email inquiry via their website, he was helpful and responsive. He was willing to meet me in late" afternoon to re-key all of the doors in our new home. He was prompt and got right to work. He proposed a unique solution for making all the doors work with a 'master key' while leaving the garage pedestrian door on a separate key - so we could freely share that one key as needed without worrying about copies being made. He also took care of two filing cabinets for which we'd lost the keys. I highly recommend and !

"My husband and I are very happy with the look and quality of the new doorknob and lock. was great to work with; so friendly and he always" answered the phone when I called (i.e., I didn't have to leave messages and wait for him to call back). I found him to be very genuine and trustworthy, and I would recommend him 100%.

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

Avoid locksmith scams

Arrests and lawsuits around the country accuse shady locksmiths of price gouging, intimidation and misleading consumers.

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.

I called mainly because a tenant had broken the lock on an apartment attached to my house and needed replacement ASAP, but I also had issues with my own house locks that I needed less immediate advice on. answered the phone when I called and spent some time with me on the phone to explore my issues. He then scheduled a free consult ...More visit, which he showed up for on time. His diagnosis of my house locks was that they didn't need replacing. He oiled and tightened them and said that they were not in need of replacement (as in, didn't try to do unnecessary work). He made another appointment to return to replace the locks on my apartment that actually did need replacement. Again, he showed up on time as promised. He had already given me an estimate for the work, and that didn't change. He did the work and even cleaned up afterward. I am super satisfied with this vendor in every respect and wholeheartedly recommend him to others.

He arrived about 1 hour after i called him which is the time he said he would arrive. He completed the work in about 1/2 hour. Very capable, professional and an excellent communicator. No question about recommending him to friends. Clearly explained that our dead bolt was no longer being manufactured or sold and that it had a history of problems. ...More We asked him about a replacement and he recommended another type of dead bolt which we are considering.

Last January, he came out and put new locks on my door. He came out today within 2 hours after I called him, and readjusted the locks and didn't charge me anything...on a Saturday! It was a problem with the door, not the lock, but he helped me anyway. What nice guy,
