Quick Lock & Pick
I don't believe I did it again for the third time this year! I locked my keys in my jeep, and now that I don't have aaa anymore I had to call a locksmith, so I called Quick Lock and Pick. The guy was really cool and was a pro! He got my car open so fast, I was amazed! I felt really bad about myself and stupid but he told me that it happens a lot, and that it even happened to him before! So now I don't feel so bad. The price was within the range that I expected it to be, no huge bill horror stories here. The guy was polite and fast. I will use them again if I need but hopefully I won't have to.

I locked my keys inside my restaurant late last night and I wasn't thinking when i left through the back with the panic bar, as soon as it shut behind me I realized I left my keys on the counter inside. At least I had my phone, I called Quick Lock and Pick Locksmiths and they came to unlock my front door in minutes, it's was pretty cool to watch the locksmith get it open. 5 stars for efficient service

This Locksmith was great! My boyfriend bought a new key from the dealership for his 2000 Ford F-150, but he didn't go to service department to get it programmed because they charged too much. I found this locksmith while driving by and the guy was able to program my key within 10 minutes for a much better price! I will use them again if I need to and they're close to my house.

A 24/7 Locksmith
just moved and got a flyer about how other people may have keys and access to my new home so I contacted Paul's to get a quote. They asked what type of hardware and how many doors that needed to be changed. They were there the next day and done in just a couple of hours. Thanks for that feeling of safety.

Great service, the guy was fast and knew what he was doing. I'm slowly updating the trim in my home and I wanted new locks that looked good and were secure. The lock is very smooth and feels durable, I'm happy with the service. Thanks!

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.
