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.

COMPLETELY SATISFIED. These guys are totally professional. Prompt. Did a quality job. I called them on the phone first and they set up an appointment for the exact date I wanted. I just moved into a pre-owned home. The installer rekeyed 5 locks and replaced the hardware on the front door for only an extra $25. Terrific customer service.

was prompt and professional. Called 30 minutes before and arrived on time for an appointment that I scheduled the day before. Completed the job in the amount of time they predicted. I would recommend them.

Arrived at our home within 30 minutes of my scheduling call; very professional; immediately focused on solving issues; completed repair and replacement within 30 minutes of arrival; rather trivial problems; door openers had both jammed; replaced one and repaired the other; cost seemed on the high side; given the overall service was immediate, excellent and thorough probably allows for the high cost; no regrets on my part

Vista Locksmiths Provider Name Locked
was awesome! Prompt, professional, friendly. He's the kind of contractor you hope you get when you call a new company. He knew exactly what to do, offered options, and explained the details of the deal. He rekeyed five doors in MUCH less time than it would have taken me to do one and even tried to fix a lock on an antique gumball machine for me (no luck there, but he was great about trying).
Cyarra (hope I spelled that correctly!) in the office was fantastic for scheduling and follow up.
I would absolutely hire them again and will recommend them without hesitation.

The service provider arrived a little bit after the agreed upon time. He got straight to work re-keying the doors on our new house. He did so quickly and without any problems. very happy with the service.
