Action Lock Doc
I had locked both set of keys in my car! Called a couple of other places and nobody would come out to Clever where I live. Called Action Lock Doc and he was like no problem. He gave me a price and wanted to to know my address. About 45 minutes later he was here. Could not ask for better service!

My son locked his keys in his car. He is in college and we are 3 hours away. Action Lock was out in 20 mins and only charged him 29 dollars. Speedy, professional and I would recommend him to anyone. Thanks for helping this parent sleep better tonight!!

Hands down the best locksmith company ihave ever called. Friendly, fast and affordable. I highly recommend giving the company a call if you ever have any issues with tour lock. This guy knows what he is doing. He did extra work and didn't ask for any additional costs. No hidden fees.

Great response, service and price. I called Action Lock Doc on a Saturday morning because the deadbolt on my Mom's house was broken. She couldn't get out of the front door. Action Lock Doc said he could be there at 10:30 AM. He called ahead of time, right as he said he would, was very courteous, professional and inexpensive for a Saturday call! Great job, and my Mom really appreciated it!
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.
