Tumblers Locksmith Service
If you've ever had a problem with a lock then you know my pain. It hardly ever happens and when it does its always at the most inopportune time and worse.... you never know who to call that you can trust. Well I know now. After calling down the list and having two of the top ten ended up being one of those scam companies. One guy showed up and tried to raise the price up hundreds of dollars, when he did that I canceled. The next guy quoted a cheap price and never showed up. Then I realized even yp.com has scam companies listed at the top of their locksmith recommendations. That is scary. Especially since you think yp would be a listing service that you could trust not to put scam companies in their directory. They should probably check a little better before listing companies that deal with locks and security things. Finally I got Tumblers on the phone. I wish I had called them first. These guys are going in my speed dial. They were friendly, professional, and they are a legitimate lock and security company. Problem solved...

Tumblers Locksmith Service
I wouldn't call anyone else. These guys are licensed, dependable, trustworthy, insured, and they have outstanding customer service on the phone and in person. One of our employees lost the keys to the new company truck out in the oilfields. These guys were there fast and made a key from scratch in less than 30 minutes. We have a business and a fleet of trucks. Tumblers does all types of locks, not just vehicle locks. They work on home and business security too. I know who we will be using from now on.

We called them out to fix the door at our business and were very happy with the job Bobby did repairing the lock and getting it back to working order. He took his time, taking the door apart and repairing it better than new. We highly recommend this company!

Tips & Advices
Locksmiths-in-training can receive foundational knowledge and skills through programs offered at technical colleges or vocational schools. These would include basic courses on lock mechanics and manipulation, along with general skills like business management. From there, most trainees seek an apprenticeship, where they work alongside a professional locksmith. This allows them to gain experience in the field. It can also put them on a course toward certification.
Upon arrival to your home, a locksmith should ask you to prove that it is in fact your residence. They should also be able to unlock most common locks without requiring them to be drilled or completely replaced. Be sure to obtain an invoice that lists all charges before agreeing to pay.
  • If possible, research local locksmiths online and take note of any that have poor reviews or complaints.
  • When calling a locksmith, confirm their address matches what you found online or in a directory. Then ask for a cost estimate for the service you need, and ask to have them bring a written copy of this estimate.
  • Some states require locksmiths to be licensed. If your state is one of them, require the locksmith to bring proof of registration when they arrive.
The term locksmith traditionally referred to people who designed and built locks, but today is generally used for those who repair and replace locks. Locksmiths can be available on-call to help people if they're locked out of their home or apartment.
  • First, determine the type of lock you have, as well as the manufacturer or model if possible. You should also obtain measurements of your door and frame.
  • Remove exterior and interior knobs by unscrewing any visible screws you find. Many knobs will include a decorative cover on the interior side that can be removed.
  • Once you've removed the entire lock, find the screws on the inside of the door frame to remove the latch or deadbolt.
  • With everything removed, repeat these steps in reverse order to install the new lock.
