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.

He was courteous and quick to respond. The first time he discovered he needed to get a special tool so we rescheduled for the following week. The next time, he completed the project in under an hour and for the price he estimated. Also tightened and lubricated all the locks. I would definitely work with him again.

I hired them to change my locks and during the course of the lock change, my perfectly functioning door latch was suddenly "broken". After waiting for over four weeks for "a part" to arrive to fix it, my custom designed door hardware was replaced by them with an off color, broken handle and latch. To be fair, I paid for the original ...More lock changing, but am now stuck with a broken door latch and will have to call someone else.

Mr. was courteous on the phone, and gave us an estimate which was very competitive with the other locksmiths we contacted.
When Mr. arrived, he examined the work sites and asked questions to get clarity on what we wanted done, re-capped the pricing, and then set to work. He worked quickly, and ended ...More up discounting his work on the latch plate because he said it didn't take him as long as he had expected. He cleaned up after himself and accepted a credit card payment on the spot.
The quality of work was excellent. We have had zero issues with our locks. The latch plate was fitted perfectly, and is a huge visual improvement over the damaged wood that it covered. At every point, Mr. displayed complete courtesy and professionalism We would definitely use him again, and would recommend him to friends, family, and neighbors.

, from , came out to fix the front door lock to our house. He was right on time, actually arriving a few minutes early - which was PERFECT! I had called to come fix our lock a few days before, and was willing to come out that day - I definitely would have ...More scheduled then, but our schedule was busy, but wow what amazing responsiveness!

The work performed took about 30 minutes, and he cleaned-up as if he had never been there. The lock is now functioning flawlessly - so much better than before. The price for the work was extremely reasonable, and was a joy to work with. He is upbeat, and you feel very good for contacting him. I would not hesitate to contract with him in the future, and definitely will recommend him to friends and family.

I recently sold my house and in preparation for the buyers inspection I found a lock on an outside electrical box that had rusted shut and could not be removed. came out the next day and quickly removed the lock for me. Saved me an unwanted item on the inspection report. Excellent work, excellent response.

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. 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. ...More 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.
