All Lock-N-Key Locksmiths
I called Orange's Lock and Key, and Bill was very responsive and informative. He gave me a quote and told me if I came to his business, he could take care of my KEY problem right away. His price was very reasonable and Mike was so fast, I think he invented lightning. Thanks Orange Lock and Key for the best locksmith service that I have ever received.

All Lock-N-Key Locksmiths
I lost my car keys. Called 411. They had 3 top listings as Arrington Lock and Key, #2 Affordable Lock Key #3 Killeen Lock and Key. Called #1 at 4:30 said the guy who made keys was gone. # 2 went to voicemail. Recalled 411, operator gave me number of All Lock a-N-Key and they should be listed as #1 in the ones to call. Very nice and courteous people.

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.
