The guys here are so nice and give really quick service. I've been to the location a few times to get some keys copied and to get my locks. They were super nice and talked me though how to take the locks off of my door so I didn't have to pay someone a fortune to come out and do it. Its also conveniently located right in front of a bus stop so I didn't have to try and find parking downtown!

My only complaint was the location. If you think you are right where the address says it is but you still can't find it, go IN to the fish market. Yep keep going. A little further.His "store" is a counter in the back of the fish market. He has enough keys in his little shop to open every door in San Francisco.

My door lock was VERY poorly installed, leading me to fears of waking up to men with stockings over their face leaning over me in the night. Also, I got into the habit of saying goodbye to my possessions every time I left the apartment - "bye Ipod, nice knowing you - you too, grandmother's ring!"

Long story short, he agrees to come over later, shows up and did a fine job at a okay price (though, to change a mailbox key seems like a lot), but with no discount whatsoever for the mixup or miscommunication or the second chance.

Like the other reviewers said, it's a bit hard to find. Walk into the smelly fish market to the back, and on the left side you'll see a stand type thing loaded with keys and locks and junk of all sorts with a dude at the counter.

You may have trouble finding this place if you aren't Chinese. I speak Mandarin and was even lost in Chinatown for a good 15 mins. My Korean friend came to the same place and got lost for a super long time

Agree with all the other reviews written. These guys are great. I called then On NYD to open the lock on a closet and they came within 2 hours and charged a reasonable fee. Highly recommended.

He made sure that I was pleased with the work (which I was) and charged me exactly what he'd quoted on the phone. I can be happier. Thank you for the fast, friendly service!

If you like to be treated fairly, then Locksmith should be your first round draft pick! Leave those other crooks on the bench who offer same services at double the price.

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.
