"on time, courteous, quick and clean I was really pleased with the work done and appreciated that the repairman tightened the knob on a door that was not having" a lock replaced, free of charge I'll definitely use them again!

-Sarah B.

"As we were finishing our final walkthrough with our realtor, we received a call from their employee that he was in the area ahead of schedule. Unfortunately we didn't" own the home at that point and couldn't have the locks changed. While we did ultimately have to wait several hours after closing for the locks to be changed, they made sure they were changed, secure, and we had copies of our keys. No complaints, we would have been ahead of schedule if we'd owned the home when they first called. :D

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 reviews in Salem


used this company before to rekey all my locks after purchasing a new home. This team was responsive, efficient and fast. I called them back when I wanted to add a deadbolt. Excellent service
- Colleen A.

They were able to get us on the schedule quickly, just 1-2 days after we called. They showed up on time, were polite and finished the job quickly. According to the invoice, the service call was the bulk of the cost, so they probably could have done more doors for close to that same cost, we just happened to only need one door re-keyed.
- Ashlyn B.

The technician was sent to our house the morning that we called E&S Security and he worked quickly to resolve the problem. We were very happy with the service provided.

Absolutely flawless.

showed up right on time, was friendly, knowledgable, and worked swiftly. One of the deadbolts had been opened and retuned (which I did not realize when I bought it), and it had one screw missing, but he was able to find one on his truck that worked. Then after it was on, the combination was not locking and unlocking properly (obviously why it had been returned), but he was able to problem solve it very quickly and now it works great.
- Cynthia D.

LockDoctor came on the day & time I was available. They were pleasant, courteous & business like. It took them a short time to do the job & it was a reasonable charge. If & when I need locks changed, I will call them again.
- Elaine C.

Prompt inspection of problem, parts ordering, and installation. Kept me informed along the way. Courteous, articulate, professional, and service-oriented. Spontaneously removed shipping costs included in bid when those were not charged by the shipper -- I had no way to know. Impressed with the attitude and the work.

is great! He arrived on time Wed. (10/7) and began work right away. Things went smoothly….UNTIL we got to the newly installed door. The manufacturer of the door had drilled the lock opening at an angle, that meant the new lock wouldn't just slip in. Unfortunately,

was due out on another call so we decided he would finish the job Thurs. (10/8). Again he arrived on time and went right to work. He drilled, he finagled, he bought a lock-plate and spray painted it to match the lock. He just kept at it until I had a working lock that looked great. (The home contractor paid for that part of the job, so it's not included in my price.) I couldn't have asked for a better locksmith or a better job done. It's just so nice when people do their jobs well. If I ever need anymore locksmithing done, these are the folks I'll call.
