    Coop's Locksmith Service
    Coop's has a WIDE variety of keys for ANY make and model. They have the equipment to make them, and are MUCH cheaper than a dealer will charge. If they don't have what you need, they will go out of their way to get it. They are actual locksmiths--not employees that have been trained on how to run a key making machine. If you need advice on anything locks, this is the place to go. Very reasonably priced as well.

    Blaine Lock & Safe, Inc.
    This was the first time I used Angies List and the first time needing a lock repair. After reviewing, I called Blaine Lock and asked for service, when they explained I could remove the lock and bring it in to save myself the trip charge. I removed the lock, drove over thinking I would need to drop off and pick up, when I was THRILLED to be told I could have a seat, it would be only a few minutes to look at it and fix. I swear by their service; fast, friendly and courteous. Plus HONEST and they helped me save money. Thank you so much!

    Lockguard Inc
    Lockguard gave me extensive detail on my options for my new deadbolts and door knobs. They had different examples on their truck to show me the finishes and options. I appreciated how informative they were. They did not hurry me with my decisions. I would use them again and would recommend them.

    North Metro Locksmiths
    I was out of town Friday and Saturday and my sister was letting my dogs out for me.  The evening before another friend who had cared for my dogs had locked the door handle on my front door, instead of just the deadbolt, and I don't have a key that works in the door handle.  All other doors were locked and the keys for the other doors were in the house.  The windows were locked down tight.  I called North Metro to see if they had a locksmith to come out quickly as the dogs had been shut in the house all night.  They said they would send someone out.  They said it was $25 for the service call and $29 and up for the opening of the door. 
    A while later, the technician called and said he'd be there in 15 minutes, but it was 30 or 40 minutes that my sister waited at my house before he arrived.  He had with him an invoice pad and which had prices pre-printed on it.  It listed $165 for Emergency House Lockout Service - PRE-PRINTED.  I'm not sure why they quoted me $29+ and up when the set price PRINTED on the invoice for this service was $165.  He had that amount marked before he looked at the door or "kind' of lock or tried to unlock it. My sister proceeded with it because she didn't know the numbers that had been given to me on the phone and we had already waited this long and the dogs needed to get outside.  To find another locksmith at this point would have been too late.  He proceeded to get the door open, but cracked the veneer on the door, forced off the metal plate on the frame, stripped the screws and damaged the wood on the frame.  I'm not even sure how to repair it.  The door won't stay closed tightly without deadbolting it now.  He then refused to take a check.  She reluctantly offered him a credit card instead  and he ran her credit card through his electronic credit card reader.  It successfully completed the charge.  He then insisted on writing her credit card number down on the invoice.   She did not want him to do this, but he said "Look at all the other numbers people have given me..  it's ok!" and flipped through his invoice copies, showing her other people's credit card numbers.  This made her even more nervous, seeing the level of security involved in this stack of Credit card numbers, but she didn't know what else to do, as services had been rendered and she figured she had to.  My understanding is that this is illegal.
    I called the company Sunday morning to see what they could do for me.  The manager on duty was combative and not very helpful.   She insisted that they don't pre-print numbers on their invoices and the price depends on the "kind' of lock it is.  Once she saw the invoice - which I e-mailed to her- she still said the service to unlock my door based on the "kind" of lock must have cost $165, and it was just a coincidence that $165 was also the amount pre-printed on the invoice for ANY House Lockout Service.  A coincidence. I asked her if they have a list of prices for the different "kinds" locks.  She said they have "GUIDELINES".  I said can you send me the guidelines?  She said "I can if you want, but I'd just be typing them up to send to you, so it wouldn't prove anything."  I said "you don't have anything in writing for your technicians to do their pricing?"  She said "we have GUIDELINES.  We have lots of different contractors - we can't have them all running around with a piece of paper with prices"  I actually laughed, as that seems like something a legitimate business would do, and said incredulously "So you just tell them verbally and expect them to remember and price them correctly?  So they just make them up?"  She said "They don't just make them up.  We have GUIDELINES."  very condescendingly.  I wasn't getting anywhere with this line of questioning so stopped.  She told me there are a lot more expensive doors/locks out there than this - I don't doubt that since this one is over 30 years old and cheap to start with - I guess that was supposed to make me feel better and like it had been priced correctly. 
    I told her this was bait and switch, but she said that technically it's not, because Baiting is when you give a solid quote, not an open-ended one, and switching is when you change it once you've done the work - my sister had seen the price and agreed to it before the work was done.  She seemed to be familiar with the accusation.  Well, whatever the technical definition is, they were NOT honest about their prices and I was in a situation where they might as well have done the work (and they HAD, if you call the service call doing the work - that was part of the cost) - because I could not afford the time to look into other solutions at that point.  She also said it wasn't their problem if the contractor was writing down credit card numbers when he shouldn't.  She called back later to tell me that it wasn't illegal to do that.  I'm not a lawyer but I have a friend who owns a small business in MN who was told it's a $10,000 fine per credit card number to store them illegally (without consent?).
    I have sent the company pictures of the damage as well as the invoice.  They were supposed to call me back on Monday to discuss compensation for the damages. It is Tuesday evening and I have not heard a peep from them.  I was waiting to post this to see if they would make it right.
     Overall, I would highly, highly highly recommend NOT ever using this company, no matter what dire straits you are in.  Find another company.  I tried to find one that was reviewed on Angie's List but they weren't available, or were too far away.   It is better to damage your door yourself for free, or break a window.  They hire contractors who do not seem to be actual locksmiths, or at least not skilled ones, and whom they do  not stand behind.  They were not apologetic in any way.  They had all kinds of excuses for the suspicious nature of their pricing and no documentation.  I could have opened my own door for free if I was OK with damaging it the way he did.  Either that or broken a window - it would have been cheaper and less hassle. 
    Having a locksmith come to your home and break in is a personal and risky thing that leaves a customer feeling somewhat exposed anyway, even in the best scenarios.  Dealing with a professional, considerate, competent company would have helped to alleviate those feelings.  Dealing with this company made it a complete nightmare and left me feeling sick and vulnerable and with a door that won't latch properly and no compensation - $200 out of my pocket..  And now my sister will have to monitor her credit card, to make sure no one is getting a hold of her credit card number as it floats around in someone's vehicle, on an invoice pad with dozens of other numbers, unsecured - being used to show the next unsuspecting person how "safe" it is.

    UPDATE:  I called back a week later (today) as I hadn't heard from the owner regarding compensation for the door.  It was someone else who answered, who said there are a lot of them there and wanted to know who I talked to.  I didn't have a name.  She said they don't have an e-mail address, so she didn't know where I had sent the pictures. She said "how do you know she got them?  Did she know the color of the lock?"  and i said "because she called me back and said she got them and I didn't think she would lie"   She said they had no record of me calling to complain about this.  She wanted to send a technician out to fix the door. I said I don't want your technicians touching my house.   I asked for a manager and she said she was the manager on duty.  I think all of the call center employees are instructed to say they are managers.  At this point I just asked for a refund - I don't want to pay a company $200 to break my door - I can do that myself-  and I'll deal with the cost of fxing or most likely, replacing the door, and she said they don't give refunds.  I told her I needed to speak with the owner.  She said he'll be there on Monday and his name is Mike.  This company is a complete disaster.  I have never worked with such disorganization and incompetence, and I've worked with a lot of service providers. I honestly don't know how they have stayed in business.

    I did not elect to take the service as "I only accept cash" is not standard for a business.
