"Just nice and smooth. They phoned in advance, showed up on time, did the work quickly and politely. I bought the Angie's List special of four locks for $119," and having had locks rekeyed in the
area before, I know that was a good deal.

"He rekeyed 4 more locks than what I originally paid on Angie's list. Only charged $40 for the additional locks. He was very professional and took his time so" that I was satisfied with the ease inserting keys. No
or issues with locks.

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.

Locksmith worked fast and quickly. I didn't watch as I was busy with other things. Coupon covered most
of the work, but I asked for extra keys and removal of a lockbox on the handle, which he did efficiently.
Charged me $35 extra for the work not covered in the coupon. Overall the cost seemed reasonable.
Work was done quickly, cleanly and I think professionally. Keys still work.

So, before I purchased, I called and verified that I could use service immediately since my front door lock broke and got a call right away from office saying someone could come out that night to change it if they were available...he was not, was told he had car trouble, so someone would come out first thing Sat am - GREAT! I get a call from a guy in
Durham Locksmiths Provider Name Locked
Park (saved the message even) who wasn't happy he would have to come so far out of his area and complained about office not caring how long it took or distance - not a great first impression - but he said he was on his way...I went to Home Depot (never again) to buy a lock, and got a call in store from ANOTHER guy who said he was assigned the call and would be able to come out about 10 - told him I was confused that another guy was coming and he said it was his call - so I call the other guy back and he says to me, it was too far, the other guy was handling - nobody had told me anything...so the new guy (

) comes out, he was nice, didn't have a clue as to what the voucher covered - I told him re-key 4 locks or install a new one - and showed him the one I got...he was all set to finish when we discovered there were no keys in the box, so he had to remove and I had to return it to home depot who was out of them...so, had to run to Menards...picked up the same lock for $10 less and returned home and he installed...he was GREAT!...turns out

is made up of a bunch of independent guys...
Follow up 3/18/15 - so my BOTTOM lock froze up AGAIN and the top lock is crooked - called the guy who came out who said he couldn't help me - I needed to call the company and they would charge me - would I use again - NO - don't BUY THIS!

I am not sophisticated enough to take the locks out and bring them to the shop, although they did give me that option. The cost of their service call was very reasonable, and the work itself was good, efficient, and fast. The total cost is excellent, considering they repaired deadbolts on both exterior doors!

This experience was wonderful. Mr.
Durham Locksmiths Provider Name Locked
was not only good at his job but also professional and knowledgeable about various locks and potential plusses and minuses of the various brands, He first arrived for an estimate/consultation a week before, letting me know my options and the type of hardware to purchase. Today he was here as promised, right on time and worked until the various jobs were completed. Everything works as expected and looks great!!! I would recommend

When I found I could not unlock our front storm door this morning (keyed on both sides) I called three Angie's List locksmiths in the morning, based on ratings and proximity.
Durham Locksmiths Provider Name Locked
was the only one with the lock needed in stock. The locksmith showed up a few minutes early and completed the project quickly and professionally. He also replaced the doorknob (had started being hard to unlock during the winter). Labor/service call was $85 and parts were standard charges. Highly recommended.

(a veteran, I might add) confirmed the appointment via email last night and called me around 12 to let me know he would be there at the scheduled 1 pm appointment. He was professional and personable. He completed the job timely and professionally. I has questions about the new door and security, he offered suggestions for me. He did NOT try to UPSELL his services. He astually gave me suggestions onm what I could do to secure the side light windows. I will definately use him for all future lock and security needs.

Two men came, one more experienced than the other. They quickly had the lock off and determined that it was broken...informing me that this was a common problem within the life of the lock and showed me the breakage. They had another lock in the truck...very similar and acceptable to me. It was installed quickly and works fine.
They also looked at another door lock that was not catching...we had to close it by using the deadbolt or it would blow open. They made an adjustment so it would close, but warned that this may not be permanent solution. It was not...the door once again can blow open and must be latched with the deadbolt. Haven't had time to get to a more permanent solution. I would ask them to come back to solve that problem.
