Default Locksmiths

Can someone recommend a reputable locksmith? I just purchased a new home and would like to have all locks changed.

Take a look at the actual locks, I believe you will find these are the type that YOU can rekey yourself. While the homes are for sale, they are typically keyed for a key the realtors have. Once the house is sold, these are re-keyed to the owners keys. If you have a similar key, you can re-key your house to your keys, or buy a cheap lock of the same manufacturer, and use that key as the master for your new home locks.

Hope this helps.

You should have been given a tool to help you rekey your home. If you're not comfortable doing it yourself, I highly recommend Howard Hansen. Very reasonable prices, very ethical, an all-round nice guy. (Retired locksmith, Villages resident 708-785-1115)

Dave Kaiser just left after installing sliding door lock and deadbolts for garage door. Excellent service, very knowledgable on security issues, I would recommend him to anyone.

Dave Kaiser with Access Safe & Lock at 352-272-4776. He re-keyed our locks, installed a sliding door lock and a deadbolt lock for the garage door. Excellent service, I would recommend him to anyone.
