"The technician was prompt, friendly, and performed the task very quickly. He also went a step further and noticed that my front door sticks, had a larger strike" plate in his car, and sold it to me for $10 to change out to help with the problem. I would definitely use this company again.

Locksmiths

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

Dear Angie: Are keyless locks — the ones with a keypad — as good as regular deadbolts? — Deb H. of Madison, Wisconsin

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've been under a lot of stress and it has made me careless and maybe a little stupid! I left my keys at work and then didn't get home until 11:30 p.m. I had never used a locksmith before so I didn't know what to expect. I looked on Angie's List and found these guys. I called at 12:15 a.m. The gentleman I spoke to was nice and said someone would arrive in about 15 - 20 minutes. At 12:19

called me to get my address. He arrived at 12:34. He was super friendly, kind and professional. I have a "smart lock" so he had to drill out the core and replace it. The cost was a lot for me but I was desperate. I have nothing to compare it to so it may be typical and at 12:30 a.m. you do what you need to do!

finished the job and was gone in less than an hour. He was really great...my dog even liked him and went to him which has NEVER happened with anyone before. That's a true testament! The lock works perfectly.

They could match the door key but not the ignition, even though they were the same key, so the locksmith said they would have to drill out the ignition and replace it. The ignition has been sticky since, and after a few months it wouldn't work any more. When I looked under the steering column, they had broken the ignition housing when they drilled it out, but didn't tell me at the time. Now I know why he 'gave me a little break on the price", it was out of guilt. What a lack of integrity!

were very quick about replying. Also, they provided a next day appointment to come out and help me figure out why the locks were not working. The guy that came out was very professional and came at the appointed time without delay. They diagnose the problem quickly and changed out the locks with reasonable cost since I called a few other locksmiths and they couldn't come out till two weeks when I contacted them. I would definitely use

again.

I emailed them from Angie's list and had a response within 30 minutes. They gave me a quote and scheduled me with a 9am to 12 time frame the next day and would meet me at my storage unit. They called me at 8:15 that day and said tech was on his way and would be there in 45 mins. The tech was very polite and professional. He had a hard time drilling through the lock but kept at it until the job was done. It was very hot that day but he didn't complain, he just kept working at it. I sat in my air conditioned car and felt really bad, but he got the job done and I would definitely recommend them and will use them again if the need arises.

Excellent. I called on Tuesday and they were able to come out within 2 days. They probably would've come out earlier if I needed them to.
