" followed up promptly with my appointment request, showed up on time, was extremely professional and friendly and performed the need work" with no problems. It was a pleasure to work with him and I would highly recommend him to others.

"Mr. is very personable and informative. (I like being given information so that I understand more about how locks are supposed to function.)" His charge was more than reasonable. On September 28, 2015, I called him for advice on which hardware would be correct for the replacement French door being installed in a few days. He provided me with information about the builders' code and about the high-impact thermal glass used in any new doors. I now know which dead bolt lock is required by law and will have the correct hardware ready when the contractor arrives to install it. Thank you, Mr. ! I will be calling Mr. when I am ready to change the first-floor door hardware to match the hardware on the new French door.

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.

It was difficult to turn the key in the front door lock. Because I did not want a replacement that did not match the door, he fixed the existing lock. It's fine now.

recommended we could save money by buying the new locks and keys ourselves and hiring him to install the hardware, which we did. He also recommended the most reliable brand to buy.
removed the old locks and installed the new ones. He did the job, on time, and at the price quoted. He did not try ...More to sell us any additional work, though he did suggest a new peephole at her (wheelchair bound) eye level, which we declined. He cleaned up after himself, sweeping up wood shavings, etc on the floor. He interacted well with my mother, asking her to test the locks before he left. He also took the old locks and keys to recycle or reuse them for parts. We were quite satisfied.

arrived about 30 minutes after I called, quickly identified the problem and its solution. Had necessary parts in the truck, finished the job within an hour. Could not ask for a more competent and personable worker.

Provider was polite professional and proficient. He educated me on the specific lock that he installed and provided other locksmith tips.

It went very well. The gate into which one of the keyless entry pads was to be installed was too thick. The locksmith was able to cut out the area under the plate and successfully install the lock and it all looked very good and worked correctly.

I called for an estimate for installing a new lock. He gave me advice on how I might be able to get the job done without having to pay him. It worked! I will definitely use and Key for any future needs.

I called for an estimate over the phone and was given the quote including Angies list discount. Set up an appointment in which arrived on time. We reviewed what we spoke about in our phone call and started working, first cutting hole for deadbolt then rekeying the rest of the locks. He was very thorough ...More and personable in explaining what he was doing. After installing the deadbolt, he took the remaining 5 keys out to his van to re key them. When he was finished, they all worked perfectly. He cleaned up the mess from installing the deadbolt and was on his way. It took a couple hours but he was re-keying for 3 different locks as I did not want 1 key to work in all the locks. I was pleased with his work and the price.

I called to schedule service, my van hatch door had the lock stuck in the closed position but the door was open, so it would not close. When I explained the problem, he suggested a course of action to try. I walked out to the driveway, followed his instructions and it worked like a charm! He saved me the time and cost of a service call, solved my problem, ...More and bolstered my faith in humanity
in 2 minutes and 8 seconds flat. I would absolutely call him first if the need arises again.
