"Dorrant went above and beyond to do what we needed. When we realized we needed new door hardware, he took the time to go to both Home Depot and Lowe's to track" down what we needed. He ended up changing out more deadbolts and door handles than we originally thought would be required, and he didn't hesitate to stay as long as was needed to get the job done right. One door proved especially difficult and required him to climb through a window to get to the exterior of the door and muscle the hardware off the door for replacement.

"Excellent Service I purchased a deal on a Sunday and received an email on Monday to verify the location of the service. I was able to make an appointment later" that day for the following day. I received a call when the technician was on the way and he arrived on time. He was polite and professional. He completed the work in a timely manner and I tested each lock with good results.

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.

A deadbolt lock is a basic element of home security.

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.

After a family member misplaced a house key I wanted the front door lock re-keyed immediately. I called on a Friday night and the locksmith came out the next morning. He was very professional and explained everything to me. I also asked about having a dead-bolt put in. He couldn't do the dead-bolt installation at that time, but I scheduled a visit later in the week for the dead-bolt to be installed. He was able to fix it so I could use the same key for both locks. There was no additional visit fee for the second visit. The locksmith explained the importance of not leaving the key in the dead-bolt at night because there is a small window near the door that is large enough for someone to reach in and take the key.

Ordered the service on Thursday evening. Friday morning, I was contacted and told that they could come out on Saturday to replace my garage door springs. They came within the timeframe they told me, and the job was completed within 30 minutes. The technician was very nice, courteous, and professional. He advised me of the overall condition of my door and equipment, but did not try to sell me anything. He was also upfront about what things were more urgent and what things could wait. I can recommend them without hesitation.

I brought in 5 locks & deadbolts to be rekeyed. Having them done "while I waited" at his shop saved me a service call charge. Quick & easy. Great response & follow up using Angie's List appointment request & messaging tool. Have recommended him to our niece who is a real estate agent.

My sister locked her keys in the car , she called a company that she thought was legitimate and local ,
She looked them up on Yelp , the guy pulled up in an unmarked Audi , unlocked the car with damages ,
Charged her 275$ in cash , and when asked for licensing , he took off without showing anything ...
No Business at that address , No Business License , No Locksmith License !
Be Aware of the "business" you're advertising ...

Excellent experience. The locksmiths arrived on time. Installed new Schlage hardware and locks on several doors. Very precise and conscientious in their work. Extra care was taken to make sure one tricky door closed properly. Recommended and fixed a slight flaw in deadbolt throw on entrance door. Nice job of cleaning up as well. Would recommend to all.

It was easy to schedule a time that I could be home. When one of my locks did not match up with the others, he explained how and why to me and allowed me to take the time to drive to the hardware store and get a new lock that could be keyed to match my other locks. I would recommend Mr
