It is a wonderful and charming experience for me when I was locked and then get back in and now writing a great testimonial. 15th august- at 11:0p sharp, I was waiting for my pizza guy then suddenly my dog ran away out of my apartment, I rashly ran after him and closed the door behind me. Oh God!!! It was a pity on me that time. My keys and phone were left inside. Every thing was unapproachable now. Thanks to my loving and caring neighbor who helped me to call the most reliable and trustworthy locksmith i.e. Galaxy locksmith. Steve was there on time as agreed. He was able to manage the entire thing within a very short time. He was jovial, positive and reliable as he knows each and every thing regarding his job. I am grateful to john who helped me a lot at that time. He was the only person who made every thing accessible for me. Other wise you can imagine that it would be a terrifying and scary night for me. Thanks Steve.

I was happy to have a new house but before moving in that home I decided to re-key all the locks so I called galaxy locksmith. A professional locksmith was sent to start the work here at my new house. Galaxy locksmith professional told me that the locks of my new house are low quality and can be broken easily. I checked and found it correct.Galaxy locksmith suggested me not to spend money on re-keying but it would be good to spend more money and replace the old locks with good quality locks because it is essential for security. They did not offer any discount but changed the locks skillfully and re-key them in the same amount. I was satisfied with the quality service and I would call the same guy whenever I need a locksmith. I recommend this locksmith to others as well.

Called this business in need of deadbolt replacement after my condo was broken into. Amazing service and workmanship. They came out at 11 pm and again for a follow up the next morning. Couldn't have asked for a better locksmith during such a tough time.

I was locked out, I called and they arrived within 10 minutes, although they were fairly close to my house. Nice guys. I ended up upgrading to a safer lock and they came 5 minutes early the next day at 7:55am and did the installation in 10-15 minutes.

Never had a lost key problem that The Lil Key Shop/ Lockout Lost Keys could not solve. They have made keys for me, program the keys and reset the security system on my 2008 Honda Civic

Service was nice and pleasant. No hidden fees. In a business full of people ripping off people desperate to get into their residents, it was rather refreshing.

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.
