"whichI have used Bill's Locksmith in the past. Our front door lock came apart in my hand. I called him and he said get the part from
" and I can fix it. I e-mailed
and after identifying it they sent me the parts FREE! We couldn't get in touch with Bill after after we received it on the 31st of September we left a message. While I was at work my wife tried to find another locksmith and talked to 24/7 Mobile Locksmith. They came out and couldn't repair it they said it couldn't be repaired and we should get a new lock and door. They left us on Monday with no lock on our door and a bill for about $130.00 which
paid with a credit card. The next morning Bill called and told me he was booked solid, but he didn't want to leave me in the lurch and recommended 1st Quality Lock & Key.
contacted them they sent a man out and he fixed the lock and it works better than ever. These folks know what they are doing!

"I called in the morning and he was able to get me in that same afternoon. He called to say he could even get here earlier. Got everything done quickly and neatly" and made sure all the locks worked smooth as silk before he left. A great experience!

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.

Very fast, extremely punctual, and professional. It was a fairly easy fix (would have done it myself but lacked the tools.) Fixed the door in about 15 minutes.

There was some confusion about the address where the locks were to be changed; the provider was gracious about the mix-up and hustled to the new house. He re-keyed all the locks quickly and was a true professional. I plan to use him for all of my future locksmith needs!

This was an unbelievable experience. In the end I got nothing for my money except anger and frustration. Bait and switch. I bought a service on Angie's list and it took them 5 months to set a date. They didn't return my calls. Finally, when we set a date,

, a CROOK, told me the job would cost an additional $495 to $795. But the workman said he could do it in the 2 hours. It's just that he goofed around, talked to his boss on the phone, hadn't even started after 45 minutes. TERRIBLE experience.
I'm so ashamed of Angie's List for allowing this kind of person to advertise. Check Yelp. My experience was typical. Why isn't Angie doing something about this? I'll never use Angie's List again. They do not even pretend to check out their providers.

I needed locks changed on a home I rent out. Unfortunately, I was out of the country. I had a representative that was going to meet him; but due to schedule conflicts (not his own), we could not change the locks when originally agreed. So, the work didn't get done.
I don't attribute this to him...it's just my circumstances. I felt that he was professional in trying to help me with a bad situation. He was responsive and clear in what his duties were. If we didn't have a scheduling conflict, I would use him.

We bought an older home that only had a key for the front door, but wanted all the door locks keyed to the same key. The locksmith came out promptly the morning after we called them. We originally asked for three locks to be done, but after he got there, I asked for an additional shop door and an uninstalled deadbolt to also be done and he said that would be no problem. After looking things over, he told us that the front door was an older lock that couldn't be keyed the same as the others, so we decided to settle for two sets of keys. He got started working and a bit later he came back and said he had talked to someone else in his shop and they thought that they could get the front door to match the others. They would have to put a new cylinder in the front door that would take some custom retrofitting. A second locksmith came out and they worked together in one of their vans for quite a while and were able to get everything working great. The additional cost of re-keying the additional locks and customizing the front door lock was very reasonable. I'm sure that they spent quite a bit longer on the front door than the invoice reflected.

At first they tried to fix it and there wouldn't have been any charge for that. They tried to fix it by lubricating it so it didn't have to be changed. When that didn't work, they said they have to change it. Their knowledge and their explanation of what was going on and why they had to do what they had to do made it an A-rated experience. They have the willingness to try something that wouldn't be costly.

He was punctual and professional, and had quality workmanship. He went out of his way to make us feel safe again in our home, and that meant a great deal. We would highly recommend him!

Oceanside Locksmiths Provider Name Locked
arrived on time, assessed to different locks including private door locks and common locks and went to work fixing the locks and creating keys for everything I needed. He did this for locks in a century old building with all the lock issues older buildings have. He completed with a timely manner, accepted credit card with a Square, emailed and papered a receit. Great Job!
