Looks like I paid $85 each for a $20 deadbolt at Home Depot. 2 deadbolts installed, rekeyed.... $300. And incidentally, Bob's Locksmith has websites for Smyrna, College Park, Decatur, Marietta, etc. Guess I was ripped off, but what do I know?

Bob's Locksmith Smyrna
BEWARE!!!Beware of this company's scam, a dishonest group!!! Filed a complaint with the BBB and called the police to file a report. Showed up to our house in an unmarked vehicle, proceeded to open our door with a screwdriver and two inflatable bladders (causing damage to our door frame). This all took less than three minutes and then he told me it would be $175 after I was quoted $65 ($25 to show up and $29.99 to open the door). I asked him to justify the cost and he said it was due to the equipment he used.The number (678-359-3688) they use is linked to Barnesville, GA and the address below exist (just an intersection) but no company by the name, Bob's Locksmith, is located there. Bob's Locksmith Smyrna3101 Sports Ave SESmyrna, GA 30080Called the office again and asked for a manger and a business license, the girl laughed and said she wasn't going to give it to me. My wife called also and was hung up on. The third time I called to tell them that I had filed a report with BBB and police, she just kept repeating to me "I don't care, I don't care, I don't care in" in a childish voice.NEVER DO BUSINESS WITH THESE DISHONEST AND CHILDISH PEOPLE!!!
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.
