My purse was stolen over the weekend, and everything was taken from me. House keys, car keys, wallet, etc. I felt as though there was no one who would help me, and felt like I just could not catch a break. My story was being shared over social media, and Jake with All American Locksmith reached out to ME in regards to helping me. Not only did he do everything he could to help me out within my budget, but also kept me informed and relieved the majority of my stress over this entire situation. I will always use All American Locksmith for any of my needs in the future, and will continue to spread the word about the phenomenal service and character of this company and it's owner. Thank you Jake!

I came in and had a poorly made key to copy, they read what they key should be and made me a correct one. They even we're very very patient with me as I added more and more things to my order. If you want the best...these guys are it!!

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.
