So glad I got this referral from my aunt! I lost my house keys and she had used a locksmith recently to put up new doors and locks at her house so she gave me the number. When I called I spoke to a very nice guy who came to help me right away. The service was great and he knew a lot about locks and keys. I plan to go to their store to get keys made for my car too because the dealer is more expensive and the website has a discount. I wish I knew they were there last year when we needed work done at my job. I will be referring my boss to them too. 5 star rating!!!

They have been a staple in the area and their longevity speaks for itself!! Save yourself some aggravation and go let them handle all your security needs

I just wanted to thank Reliable Lock & Safe who has recently done work at my son's preschool to upgrade the security system! Reliable donated the system to The Children's Corner Preschool in Roseland, NJ and it certainly makes me feel better having my child there.

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.
