Brincken Safe and Lock
Joel Brincken is the best locksmith for me! When I first called Joel I'd accidentally locked myself and my dog out in my backyard on a cold winter's Sunday night. Thankfully Joel was here to let me back in my home in a very short amount of time. He saved the day! Later when I had to rekey my home after a roommate left, his service was great. He even reset the code on my garage door opener for added security. After hearing rumors about thieves using "bump keys" for hardware store type purchased door locks, I called Joel about it. He recommended and installed the best new hardware giving us peace of mind and added security. He's the best locksmith in all of Olympia and Lacey. His service is courteous and friendly. Joel puts the security and safety of your home or business first, giving you the utmost security possible. I always recommend Joel and Brincken Safe and Lock to anyone looking for locksmith or safe services!

Joel is the best locksmith ever! He has done work on our house and a rental for us already. Joel does everything from re-keying to replacing locks to making keys and much more that I'm not aware of. The fact that he is completely mobile with a well equipped van is another plus. Not having to take the lock out of the door and then put it back in myself was a major convenience. AND he comes back to make things right if any problems come up that need attention. I frequently see him where I work at a warehouse club in Tumwater where he has been their choice of Master Locksmith for years. I admire him for his strength of character, total honesty, and commitment to the Lord our God.

We have been using Brincken Safe & Lock with our business needs for many years now. He has done simple re-keys to damage repair from vandalism and break-ins. Joel is knowledgeable and is always willing to offer great advise on all of our security issues. He is extremely honest, prompt when we call, and has our best interests at heart. He doesn't come in with an attitude that he just wants to up-sale us something we really don't need or cannot afford. I recommend him highly! You won't be disappointed.

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.
