Answered phone call first time (never heard back from locksmiths I left message with). He was there as he said and communicated with us all along the way. He had residential door unlocked within minutes and was extremely professional. This was on a Saturday and his price was very reasonable. Pleasure to work with and will be the only locksmith we ever call! Thank you for making a stressful situation stress free!

After a rather unfortunate event that left our dog locked in our car and no keys to drive with even after the vehicle was unlocked, Capital Auto Locksmith really came through for us in a dire situation. I will not forget them, their timely and efficient work, OR their willingness to go above the "call of duty". I am truly thankful for this company and for the fantastic service they provided!

Ryan is very professional and extremely efficient! I don't think there is a job he can't do. I refuse to work with any other locksmith in the Montgomery area...he is just that good! Take my advice and don't waste your time with any other locksmith, he is the best and his prices are very fair.

Reliable and reasonably priced. Very courteous. First time I used was on a Sunday to unlock a door. Have used several times since then to rekey locks.

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.
