Automobile Locksmith
I attempted to leave work for a quick lunch break when suddenly the key to my vehicle would not turn in the ignition and consequently my truck would not start. I called Automobile Locksmith and there price was the most reasonable of the three locksmiths I called. They arrived in less than 30 minutes (during rush hour) and changed out the cylinder core for a new one while I continued to work. They showed me the old cylinder and why my car would not start. I am no longer stranded! I highly recommend them.

I was out town when my wife had an issue with a door lock. I called them because they were nearby. They were able to send a tech quickly that the only reason for a second star. From then on its all downhill. Tech was not skilled and very unprofessional. I called office for a supervisor but never received any response from office or supervisor after that. Office lady was nice and professional but she's not the one who comes out so would not call them again.

As they make it as a leisure activity and showing with regards to in one. Have utilized them ordinarily and anticipate some more

We lost the last set of keys to our 2003 Ford Escape and I was worried that it would be complicated and expensive to replace them. These guys were great. They met us at the locked car in the Montrose area on a Sunday at the agreed time. 30 minutes later we were able to drive off in the car. We paid $165 for the first key and $45 for a backup key -- exactly as we had agreed on the phone. I have no hesitation in recommending this firm.

I lost my car key on a Sunday morning and need an auto locksmith A.S.A.P. I have called around and no one answer my calls. Then I found SK Houston Locksmith on Yellowpages, called them, got a human answered (finally), a locksmith came in to my location within an hour, he unlocked and re-keyed my car door within a couple of minutes then charged me for an affordable price! I'm happy with his fast service and the price. Thanks again.

I borrowed my dad's car for a prom night but I lost the key in the middle of party. My friend called SK Locksmith for me and the locksmith came in very fast to unlocked my car. Then he made a duplicate key same as the original. I went home and gave the key to my dad and he did not know if it's a duplicate key! LOL. Thank you SK Locksmith. I will call you again if I need an auto locksmith again. Big hug!!

Joe & Jo are better than experts at what they do. Being protective about any of my expensive possessions, I fully entrusted them with my CADILLAC ESCALADE to take apart the steering column area so they could cut the proper key and they successfully did that and more...plus they are nice, genuine people! No need to call anyone else...Automobile Locksmith is all you need! A+++++++++ service

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.
