"We bought a house with a French door that didn't appear to be working. I called Eagle and they said it would be $40 for the house call plus whatever fees for actually fixing the lock. They charged me an additional $135 to take apart the lock, tell me it was broken, and then put it back together. I was told it would cost approximately $500 to replace the lock. The locksmith said he would

for a replacement and he called me back to let me know the lock is no longer made. So I was left with the impression that I'd need to spend possibly a $1,000 or more to replace the door. It turns out the lock was fine and we just had to pull the door handle up as we turned the lock. A friend, who is not a locksmith, had used a similar door. The door was designed to work this way. I called Eagle about the issue and the first person I spoke with said he would look up the service call and call me back in a few minutes. He still hadn't called me back by the next day. I called again and spoke with someone else who gave me, supposedly, his supervisor's number to call. I called that number only to get a message saying the voicemail had not been set up. I get that Eagle isn't in the customer service business, but they should at least know how locks work before they tell you they're broken.

"Fortunately, the locksmith called me as I forgot entirely about the appointment. He was running late and we were able to meet up at the house a little later. It did take some time to install the lock as it appears not to have fit initially. It looks nice.

"Mortise lock installation was complex due to age of door and the parts were insanely expensive (a grand or more) due to the fact that they had to be custom assembled by the factory. Installation was also complex and took two techs about four hours. The work was expert, the guys were friendly, and clean-up was good. There was a minor problem with the keys they made for me onsite, but they didn't charge for them.
All in all, this was an "A" experience, assuming I wasn't rooked on the parts. All the other charges were in keeping with my previous experience with the locksmithing trade.

"Called for service. Problem: key would not go in on front door lock. Technician arrived & inspected lock. First he said a pin of the lock was blocking the keyhole. He could take apart the lock & try to fix it. Then he gets on the phone, and in the conversation it comes up that the lock "is probably old." I said it is 9 years old (as new as the house), so then he changes his tune & says the lock is old. He may be able to fix but with no guarantees, & suggests getting a new one. I can see this coming a mile away but I agree to get a new lock. Does he have one? Of course. Does it match what is there now? He says it does. Once he is done, I noticed the lock does not match the bigger outline of plate of the old outside lock so it looks terrible. I ask him if he can fix the old plate & says he will try. It works, although it definitely looks odd.
I gave him a check. I had already observed to him that I had paid for the service call via Angie's List & I was getting charged for a visit - again (plus the lock, etc.). His explanation was not too good. As I give him the check, I ask for the receipt which he e-mails. Once I get it, he begins to walk out the door saying "I have something else I need you to fill in." I was going to ask for the old lock back, but he disappeared without returning.
Conclusion: not a good experience.

"This is the best locksmith in the area. It is very easy to communicate with him by both email and phone. My lock on my condominium was a high security lock, and I was unaware of how impossible it was to get a key copied for this lock. I wasted a whole day going around the area to hardware stores trying to get my key copied as well as trying to reach the bazillion locksmiths” who are listed on the web and supposedly have addresses in

County – only to find the bulk of them have no storefronts, and voice mailboxes that are full, they don't return calls in a timely fashion, if at all --not to mention some with a history of scamming people.
This locksmith is highly knowledgeable, very fair, and will give you systematic, logical, detailed analyses of your problem. Through a series of photographs sent by email, he diagnosed the problem, the type of lock he would need to replace it with,
showed up on time, did a beautiful job and didn’t even charge me for labor. We are now using him for our new house, where he provided me with a chart with all my options for the different doors, at various costs, and you can just tell he is a true professional who can be totally trusted, and will do a beautiful job that is guaranteed.
I would not use anyone else in the future.

"We have used Mr

twice over the years and he always delivered top notch service. He changed a few locks at our old house and one at our new house. The work at our old house was done 5 years ago and it has still held up well. In addition, he always seems to give better prices than the other locksmiths that we have talked to."

called an hour before to confirm the appointment and arrived on time. First, I showed him the three doors that I wanted re-keyed. Because two of the locks were the same, he suggested we replace the third so they all matched and could therefore use the same key. This was exactly for what I was hoping. He removed the three locks, took them out to his truck, and returned about 20 minutes later in install the three locks. He even made me some extra keys.

is extremely knowledgeable and pleasant. His prices are quite reasonable. I can't recommend him highly enough!
