Lone Star Locksmith
Wow so they wouldnt quote me over the phone i should have seen that as a red flag and called someone else, also when he got here he blew up an air bag to pop open the door didnt unlock the lock, I have been locked out more then once and have never seen that done. They come quick but its not worth it $140 was the price I have never paid over $70 on top of all that they made a carbon copy of my credit card when I asked him not to I had already given him the numbers and it had been approved smh worst locksmith experience ever. Just call pop a lock and wait the hour or two!!!

Dependable, reliable, on time, fair price, honest, and they get the job done! Joseph Cowan came over as promised at the time agreed upon and he took really good care of us and had us squared away in no time. Even with him having to try to create keys from scratch, he got it done in a short amount of time. He was very courteous, professional, and articulate. EXCELLENT WORK!!!! I will definitely use you guys again and will recommend you without hesitation.

Best locksmith ever. Save your money and utilize Lone Star Locks and Keys. I called them 2 days ago because I was having issues with a front entrance. Sam appeared up for the arrangement on time and for less than half the cost and a fraction of the time, work finished. Pleased customer. Thank god I called them.

I called Lone Star Locks and Keys and requested for an estimate on new lock replacements after returning home to find a few things that seemed really off.Within 20 minutes, Dave showed up to take a look and quoted prices for the next morning installment. I would definitely use this company in a heartbeat.

Tyler Lock N Key
Tonight was my first time ever calling a locksmith. I was locked out of my apartment. When I came across Tyler Lock N Key. Their service was fast and reliable. The cost was fair, better than I expected. Would highly prescribe and use them again if I was ever in the same circumstance again.

Like I would accept a great many people have encountered, I didn't hope to be bolted out of my own place of business yet beyond any doubt enough, I was. Coincidentally strolled outside without the keys and recollected the accurate minute the entryway clicked close behind me

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.
