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.

arrived on time and fixed the problem in less than 20 minutes. This was not your average locking system! He was extremely professional and very knowledgeable knowing exactly what needed to be done. His honesty is refreshing and rare to find. I will definitely use and recommend his services again and again.

I called
Southport Locksmiths Provider Name Locked
after finding out that I realized I left my house keys at home and I was locked out. That time I was still at my workplace but I still called
Southport Locksmiths Provider Name Locked
. I asked them if they could send a locksmith to my house and wait for me until I would arrive home. I know, this is a selfish request but I have to be there when the locksmith unlocks the door. I was lucky that it was not such a big problem with them.
Right on the phone, they gave me a reasonable quote for the job. Overall, the experience was pleasurable. The locksmith was friendly, patient, fast and very professional.

We called about 10:35 for help. Our friend was locked out and needed to get in to get her melds etc. we told his dispatch all this. It is now past 1:35 am and we have just been told by his people he is not coming. My friend is very stressed and frightened as to how she will manage without her meds.. I have terminal cancer and have to sit here until the morning caring for her and calming her. Non of your listed emergency call people answered the phone. This is beyond disgusting. And I paid $35 for this! I am appalled and will spread this far and wide that this list is garbage and so are the so called emergency businesses associated with it.
- Linda B.

Professional, quick, respectful. Highly recommend this company. The minute they arrived, I knew they were top notch as their van is clean, they wore a uniform. They are dedicated to their profession. Typically a lock

arrives in a less professional appearance, not these guys.
I purchased a package through Angie's list. The issue I have is not with this vendor, but with the process Angie's list communicates. Seems A.L. doesn't provide a members contact information after a purchase is made. The vendor must communicate via A.L. As we all know Angie's list floods are emails often with promotions, so I overlooked the locksmith's email. Not there fault.
- Douglas H.

Provider called 30 minutes before arriving, and arrived promptly. After reviewing the situation with him both verbally and visually, provider gave his best solution for the situation at hand. We agreed on the solution and he performed the work within 20-30 minutes (was not looking at my watch). Provider was conscientious, and courteous, observing household protocol (noting that we were not wearing shoes in the house, he put on cloth protectors over his shoes). Provider billed and accepted payment promptly upon completion of service, and left the premises immediately. Provider's English was heavily accented, but was completely understandable with only a few requests for restatement.
- David N.

Excellent and honest service. Great courteous staff. I will use them any other time I need locksmith services.
