Great locksmith, great service. Avi at pro locksmith was very polite and very professional. I got some keys online and other locksmiths said they wouldn't work and they didn't wanna touch them unless I bought the keys straight from that locksmith. Lou tested my blank keys to make sure they were compatible and once verified he cut and programmed them. The transponder works, all the doors work, even the panic button works :)Fair price compared to dealers and other locksmiths, and very friendly staff. Thank you very much! I will definitely recommend them to all my friends and coworkers

On Time Locksmith, Inc.
I had just bought a new home with four doors that needed new locks. I got a referral from my friend who used On Time Locksmith for their home and he highly recommended them. So I called and spoke to someone named Steve. He was very professional, courteous and extremely knowledgeable about his products and services. I decided to get medeco locks because you cannot get duplicate keys made at home depot or lowes, only licensed locksmiths can make copies, which On Time Locksmiths are....licensed. The tech was at my house in less than 30 minutes after I hung up with Steve. The tech was also very professional and knowledgeable about his products. He was done very quickly and work was high end! Could not be happier and could not feel any safer with these locks protecting my home, and more importantly my family.

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.
