"It went well. I was out of town, but was told my door was jammed from the person checking on my home. I called and they came out and took" care of everything, then took my payment over the phone. My locks/strike plates were out of alignment from self install, he rekey'd my dead bolt and made some good key copies for me. I've had horrible copies made from Home Depot before that had stripped out my old dead bolt.

"We have a gate that we use to let people in through our phone system. Our handle was not functioning and the gate kept opening. I found " on Angies List and called. He answered and said he could meet me within the hour as he was working nearby. I was shocked at the quick response. When showed up we discussed the issue and he gave me a couple of solutions. He did not try and "sell" me he just laid out my options. He was fast, courteous, clean and gave me a full explanation as to what he was doing. The conclusion is very . If I need a locksmith he is my guy. Period. If you need a locksmith he should be your guy too. I cannot recommend him highly enough. And most importantly my dog liked him too!

Locksmiths

If you're locked out of your home or car, a locksmith can be your lifeline - but make sure you hire a reputable one.

Have you lost track of who has copies of your keys? Do you want to improve your home security? A professional locksmith can help.

Hands picking a lock

When it comes to having any sort of lock work done on your home or business, there’s no substitute for hiring a qualified, reputable locksmith.

A reputable locksmith can check your locks to ensure they’re in proper working order, and add security accessories to help keep you and your belongings safe.

Deadbolt lock

Picking the wrong locksmith could lead to price gouging. One-forth of the respondents of a recent poll said they were overcharged when hiring locksmiths.

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.

In a town full of unreliable, unscrupulous, fly by night businesses, at
. stands out as a beacon of integrity, trustworthiness and
dependability.
Born and raised in Miami, has been in business for 25-plus-years. I have used
for about ...More 15 years now for various jobs – large and small. I believe he treats
his customers the way he wants to be treated. This means fair prices, punctual service, a courteous and
helpful attitude and professional installations and spotless work.
Most importantly, as a Miami local, has seen every possible breach in security and
has taken the time to point out and discuss with me potential safety issues at
my home and office. honestly cares about the protection and safety of his customers which makes him a truly stellar
locksmith.

changed all five of the locks in our newly purchased home to get them onto one new key. He swapped out pieces to get rid of an old deadbolt, made everything secure, and was super nice. Our realtor recommended and we were so happy she did. He was quick, professional, and affordable. We will use him again ...More in the future for any lock needs.

was extremely professional and nice. He was able to fit me in rather quickly when I called to make an appointment and he gave me a time frame and even called when he was on his way. He put a tarp down around the door and then swept up any debris that was left over. He did a great job and I would definitely recommend him.

It went great. They were on time, called ahead, and were extremely professional. The locksmith actually fixed two of the lock-sets that were slightly bent, making them work better, and did not charge me. Overall, everything thing went perfectly and the price was very reasonable.
