Arrow Safe & Lock Inc
We arrived at Arrow Lock and Safe Friday afternoon and were greeted by an older. He studied the blank key and proceeded to load it into a cutting machine and cut the key. He examined the freshly cut key and said it looks like he cut it too much. We stepped outside and tried the key, sadly it didn’t work. A few minutes later, another employee walks in. The first employee tells the second employee to take a look at the cut key and see what he thinks. This employee picks up the key and examines it, and says "Internet", I replied yes. The employee throws the key onto the counter, and as rudely as possible, says can't help you (The internet key didn’t destroy itself).I can live with the fact that they didn't cut the Key correctly. What's upsetting about this transaction is incredibly unprofessional behavior of this employee. I'm surprised they are still in business. It makes me wonder if this is the way they stand behind their work normally.
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.
