Questions to Ask a Locksmith

Locksmiths are people who make their living dealing with keys and locks, in a variety of residential and commercial settings. There's a good chance that sooner or later--when you need to replace your house key because you've lost your entire key ring, or you've locked yourself out of your automobile--you will have to seek out the services of one. So if you're going to hire a locksmith, there are some important questions you might wish to ask.

  • Is it possible to make a copy of a key that says "Do Not Duplicate"?
    A lot of people own keys stamped with that phrase, but the warning cannot be legally enforced. Some locksmiths will make a duplicate for you, others will not, but you can feel safe knowing that you're not asking them to break the law.

  • Are you certified?
    The Associated Locksmiths of America offers several levels of certification to its members. Though certification isn't required by law, a locksmith who possesses it is likely a skilled professional.

  • Are you licensed?
    This is legally required in nine states: Alabama, California, Illinois, Louisiana, New Jersey, North Carolina, Oklahoma, Tennessee, and Texas.

  • Are you insured?
    If your locksmith botches a job, you need to know you have your damaged properly replaced.

  • How much will it cost?
    Whether you're looking to get a skeleton key or have a dead bolt installed, a good locksmith will give you an estimate on the phone. Also, don't sign a blank form authorizing work.

  • What is the address and legal name of your business?
    This is especially important if you're calling for help because you've locked yourself out of your car or house. As a security measure, it's important to verify his identity before you allow him access to your property or entry into your home.

    Key services cover everything from lock installations to commercial safety. A locksmith is the most obvious profession when working with keys. Locksmiths provide mobile installation and entry services for consumers. Typically, they will be skilled professionals and know about the different varieties of keys, replacement techniques, locks, access control systems and even safes. Most will know how to make a master or skeleton key that can gain access to several different locks of the same type.

    Other professionals will duplicate keys. This requires specific equipment, including blanks and the machines used to duplicate the keys. Many of these companies will provide rings and fobs that can be used to keep track of your belongings, ensuring that you can always gain access to your house or property.

    Home improvement stores can provide a consultation on the type of security you should use, be it residential or commercial, and thus the type of bolts and other equipment you should consider. The most important thing to remember is that a lost car key is not the end of the world; should this situation arise, mobile locksmith services are readily available.

    On the other end of things, locksmiths can safely pick the locks on cars and houses, typically without damage. Many will provide a flat rate for such services, as automotive emergencies are relatively common. And if such services are necessary, you might consider replacement for your home locks. Of course, in an ideal world, we would want to use these services as little as possible. To ensure this, always make a copy of your keys as soon as you get a new one and stay ahead of any future lock out or lost key emergencies.
