Was having trouble unlocking my front door so I contacted Addax Locksmith. I spoke with Jesse and made an appointment for the following morning. Jesse called before arriving and also showed up on time. He replaced the doorknob and realigned my front door to keep the door from sticking. I was impressed with his response time and reasonable price for service. A few months later I called him back to repair a locking latch for the rear French doors and again he was on time and charged me a reasonable price. Will definitely recommend him to family and friends.

Addaax Locksmith Co. Provided me with excellent customer service. I lost the keys to my 2001 Nissan vehicle and had no other mode of transportation. ADDAX met me at my residence in Harlingen, got the information needed from my vehicle and made me the key. To guarantee that the keys were done correctly, the keys were tested and without fail the keys worked. 3 keys, professional and friendly service at a reasonable price....Thank you Addax for taking care of the problem so quickly!!!!

I called ADDAX after getting a quote from a SPI Local locksmith and saved $50.00 by calling ADDAX. Jesse arrived early for the service call and was in uniform and was very courteous and professional. Jesse had all the knowledge, equipment and experience to handle my service call. I will refer ADDAX to anyone who asks me if I know of a qualified licensed locksmith!

Please give Jesse at Addax a call for any locksmith services. Called them needing new locks for my house doors and rekeying and he came out that evening to give me a quote- and had it the work completed the next day. Very professional and very reasonably priced for such quality work!! I've used other Brownsville locksmiths and Addax by far has been the best!

I needed a lock installed on my PELLA patio door. They were the only company in Brownsville that could do the work and I contacted 3-4 others prior to being given their name. Came to look at the job so that he could give an estimate. Cost was reasonable, arrived promptly, performed the job in a timely manner. Very professional. I would highly recommend them.

Fantastic Service!! We needed work done at our Bingo Hall and with just one call, Jesse was there. His work was very professional and price was extremely fair. All work was completed promptly and we have not had any problems since. Jesse was very professional and I would highly recommend for future jobs and to friends and family.

We ordered a new remote for our vehicle. Jesse was recommended to us by another locksmith who does not work on automotive needs - thankfully Jesse does! He programmed our new remote in minutes. He was prompt, courteous, knowledgeable, and professional. I will call him again if needed.

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.
