Murphy's Locksmith Services
Extremely Professional and knowledgeable lock change in Philadelphia! Using a family owned and operating lock company like Murphy's to change all of my locks and repairing my old locks at the mount airy area made me understand how's locks are actually work, and by getting high security locks to my new home made me and my husband much more secure and peaceful by knowing that nobody will ever be able to brake into our house. Murphy is a great and caring person, that actually taking really serious his work. I was asking him any question about locks and he had an answer, keep with your hard work and I will keep using your services.

Lewis Family Locksmith did a very good job in re-keying my house locks.I realized that someone had stolen my keys while I was playing softball with the guys from work. I called this locksmith and they recommended re-keying my house locks. They saved me a lot of money worth the advice, which I followed. I am pleased with the work done and also how they were able to save me a lot of hard earned money.

I will never use another locksmith in Philadelphia, PA. I've heard horror stories about locksmith's but these guys broke that mold.

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.
