"A locksmith showed up within the hour and wanted $185 to do the work which was much more than the quote on the phone. Calling back to the dispatcher, " , the amount was reduced to $125. , the locksmith, cut the key, and successfully contacted Ford for the PIN number for my vehicle. He got the key programmed, but only for starting with the key in the ignition. The remote functions were not working. He stated the remote buttons must be defective, and he couldn't help me, but said he would come back and redo a new remote key for the price of a service charge. I contacted the key supplier and they told me that the remotes were tested 100% before they shipped and that the buttons were not defective. I called back to the dispatcher, , and told her of the problem I was having . I requested a different locksmith to come and try to program the remote functions on the key. Later in the day a locksmith called, asked where I was located and told he he would call me later that day. He never called back... I contacted the locksmith the next two days, got a commitment that he would come by later in the day....he never called back. I called the company on the third day, asking for . I was told she was not available and left my name and number for her to call back. She never called... I called the key supplier and they gave me directions over the phone and I successfully programmed the remote functions. The key supplier stated that the process I performed is the standard for Ford vehicles, so it became obvious the initial locksmith didn't know what he was doing and the company did not stand behind their work. DO NOT USE THIS COMPANY!!!

"Everything went very smoothly. called ahead to let me know he was on his way, explained what he would do, and completed the job efficiently." He also helped me with a difficult deadbolt on a door that wasn't quite aligned, and recommended that I get assistance with the installation of the French doors on my patio (received the same recommendation from two other contractors that have visited my home for other services).

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.

Door lock pieces

It's best to find a reliable locksmith before you need one in an emergency.

Avoid locksmith scams

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

While most locksmiths are likely reputable contractors, a number of scams have popped up over the years.

A reputable locksmith can check your locks to make sure they work properly, or replace them when needed.

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 purchased the Big Deal and he was available a couple days later. When scheduling the appointment, he had explained that the Angie's List Deal covered the service call and first 15 minutes of service - and told me the rate if it took longer. He arrived a little early and waited for me to get there at the scheduled time He got it unlocked right ...More away and made some adjustments so that it shouldn't get stuck again. He finished up in exactly 15 minutes!

I called the number listed and spoke with a gentleman on Thursday, June 4th and made arrangements for him to come to my home at his earliest convenience which was on Monday, June 8th. He said he couldn't give me a specific time he would arrive, but said he would give me 30 minutes notice in case I was not home when he was ready to come. I cleared ...More my calendar and stayed home all day waiting for him to arrive. He never called and he never arrived. Nor did he call Tuesday morning. Very disappointing especially given his high ratings. I would have given him an F, but he was professional and courteous on the phone. He didn't perform a service, so I cannot rate him on his abilities, only his interaction with me setting the appointment.

Perfect! is very professional and knows what he is doing. He matched all of my locks to 1 key ~ storm doors, side door, front door, back door and even the garage door. Reliable, punctual and definitely worth using!

The company repaired the lock and rekeyed the lock. They were very responsive. as this was a rental house, I was glad that they accepted a credit card and could do business with me by phone. I also appreciate that they emailed my invoice to me promptly.

The other locksmith I called was not able to do the job for us due to personal issues and he left us in a time crunch. I called the day we closed on the house and they accommodated our very tight schedule. They came the next day, first thing in the morning. The tech called in advance, showed up ready to go, and got all the locks ...More changed in under an hour. Great service, prompt, would use again anytime.

I live in a 1937-era house. The front door is one of my favorite parts of the house and I love the hardware, but over 80 years, the interior handle had gotten progressively looser, to the point that it had fallen out in my hands a few times. Over the years, I'd had three other highly reputable locksmiths come out and all gave short-lived repairs ...More and said nothing else could be done.
I next anticipated that I would have to replace the entire door (I was expecting that to cost $5,000-$10,000 because I would have wanted it replicated) but I went to Locks N Pulls to ask them about options. They said that replacing the mortise lock shouldn't be a big deal. I was excited. Then, I couldn't find anybody to replace the mortise lock.
Finally, I contacted Locksmiths and told him my situation. His immediate response regarding replacing the lock was, "Doubt it can be done. Mortise locks of that age are all different and it would probably require extensive work on the door and frame or a wrap-around with metal." Nonetheless, I asked him if he could take a look, understanding that several other highly-rated (Angie's List and everywhere else) locksmiths had indicated it was essentially a hopeless situation.
He came that afternoon, very promptly. He was super-professional and took a look at the situation, disassembled the lock and said, "Look....this shaft is badly bent." He took it out to his van and about 30 minutes later, came back in and said that the shaft was so badly bent that it broke while he was straightening it. Not to worry, though! He actually created a new one. He also did what he could with my stripped-out doorknob and he said he thought it would hold, but he couldn't be sure. He said that I could find a new knob if I wanted and he would come replace it an no additional charge.
A month later, his repair remains perfect. The doorknob has never worked this well since I bought the house 20 years ago. I got to save my original hardware and somewhere between $1000 (what I had budgeted for replacing the mortise lock) and $5,000-$10,000 (if I had to replace the door)
This guy was a true professional. I'm so happy to have found him. He alone was worth the cost of many, many years of subscriptions to Angie's List.

I contacted through Angie's list messaging one night around 8:00pm. He returned by email within an hour!! I didn't expect to hear anything until the morning. After chatting back and forth a few times, we agreed on a day at approximately 9:00am (I live in Liberty, far from his normal area, so I'm sure this was an ...More approx. arrival time due to the distance/traffic). Kid you not, he arrived at 9:01! Right away he asked what we wanted to do first. I made a list priority items, and had all the materials laid out for him. He hung our garage bike racks in 20 mins. Next was the new door bell-- 5 minutes. Next was the new deadbolt--10 minutes. was super fast. If he needed to go to his truck to get something, he hustled. Time was not wasted. Less than an hour into the 2 hour time he finished all the projected I truly needed to be completed. We chatted a few minutes, before we decided to hang some shelves inside the house. He placed them on the wall to see if I liked them in that spot, we moved them a couple spots, and remained patient the whole time. When he hung the shelves into our studs, had the appropriate materials in his tool kit. After the shelves we had about 30 minutes left. He asked "what else?". I had my husband's taxidermy deer to hang. He hung that in another 5 minutes! I had NO complaints about . It was easy. He makes those projects that you've been putting off very fast, fun, and relaxed. As he completed his projects, we talked. I could tell he's knowledgable in many other areas of house projects too. I will hire him again! Thanks !
