New York Lock And Locksmith
I got locked out of my apartment in the middle of the night with no phone or anything on me. I had a local business call a All Day Locksmith Service for me - unfortunately, that locksmith was online for someone else to replace the cylinder, and that's how I found All Day Locksmith Service ! I'm so glad I did. I called them the next day and they had someone out to my place within an hour. The guy who came was friendly and did the job extremely quickly and efficiently - for only $89! I'll never use another locksmith again. Thanks, All Day Locksmith Service - I just wish I had found you sooner! Call them when you need a locksmith service in New York, NY , 212-457-2523.

My son lost his car key and called me for help in 1AM. I was really scared for him being outside in the middle of the street locked out. I asked around and found this All Day Locksmith Service , name seemed so friendly. He came to the rescue with few questions asked for the year and model of the car. I didn't felt ripped off calling locksmith middle of the night. In fact I felt so releaved that I called the right guy of all the locksmith out there in New York, NY area. I am really grateful even now just thinking about that incident, how professionally he handled opening the door. Now I know who to call when I am locked out from anywhere.

Omega Lock & Security Professionals
they got recommended to me by a friend who used their service before. So, when I needed locks to be changed on my apartment I called Omega Lock, they have responded to my inquiry quickly, explained the features of different locks and brands along with a competitive quote. Then they show up on time and The installation process was smooth. I really liked the whole experience and I promise you won't regret it. From the moment they picked up my call and asked me, "How are you doing this evening?", I knew they were the consummate professionals. Good service!!!

We got locked out of our loft in New York, NY on a Sunday evening, Search Online for a locksmith and picked All Day Locksmith Service , he was at our place within 15 minutes. We have a pretty heavy duty lock I guess, we had no idea until he started working on it, but pretty soon he unlocked it and even did a little maintenance on it before he left!! I'd say the entire experience speaks to his efficiency, skill and service!He charged an incredibly reasonable competitive rate, $89.00.

I called All Day Locksmith Service after hours during a week day to request a replacement fixture and lock installation on my door. They sent someone the following morning. They were incredibly professional, accessible, and provided a high quality service. I would highly recommend them. They are also one of the oldest locksmiths in New York, NY. Love supporting mom and pops!

All Day Locksmith Service was awesome. I called to get a lock rekeyed and they were able to get to my office and do the job within 2 hours....even in the snow! They were very professional and everything was explained and double checked to make sure it was done the right way.

They were there on the spot right away. I was locked out from my apt and When i called them they gave me reasonable price. Plus i had to get into my apt somehow. and the landlord was unavailable so this was my only chance.

Island Locksmith
Absolutely amazing service. I was completely shocked at how fast the technician arrived after my call. If you lock yourself out of your home, car, or anywhere else, it would be foolish not to call Island 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.
