Dependent Lock Key & Safe Inc
I recently purchased a new home and had some pretty specific and fairly high tech things I wanted to do to secure my home. Dependent Lock, Key & Safe was the only locksmith company that I called that not only understood was I was talking about, but was able to get the install done with impressive speed! These guys are by far the easiest locksmith company I've ever worked with, as well. If you're in Jacksonville and you call anyone else you're really doing yourself a disservice!!

This is in response to Lisa D's review. It is my belief that she is reviewing the wrong company. There have been instances of someone trying to reach this company and getting another due to some misleading advertising that is allowed. Their standard charge for unlocking vehicles during regular business hours is $65 - $75. And they never offer a "first time customer" discount.

These guys set up the whole security system at the apartment complex where I work. They are fair priced and they are easy to work with. They do great work, and they are also versatile with many different skills. They are willing to go above and beyond to work with you. They are trustworthy and very hard working. I would recommend these guys to anyone.

Jacksonville Lock & Key
They got the best deals I had called them to come out to change the door locks a the house and since I was intending to spend some money they said that they could offer me a 10% discount after already dropping the price on a few things, they are real professionals and they do honest work. From start to end I was pleased with everything they had done.

These guys offer flat fees, so as a woman I don't have to worry about someone coming out and up charging me(I have lived that nightmare before). They are fast and their prices are great! I would recommend Dependent to anyone who wants a trustworthy locksmith!

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.
