    Very polite, knowledgeable and did the job quickly. He saved me hundreds of dollars by informing me how to get my locks replaced free on warranty, instead of having to purchase the locks from him. Also, he worked on Saturday, which precluded me from having to take time off from work. Great Job!!!! Richard R. Miranda

    I hired him on two different occasions to change my locks after a tenant move out. He was professional and did a quality job, but I thought the prices were high. Also, I realized afterwards that he did not do what I wanted, he made both locks use the same key and I wanted 2 separate keys. I emphasized this when I called. When I got into town, I realized it was not done as I asked and I only had 1 key for both locks. I was very disappointed.

    Charlotte, I apologize for any confusion. If the job was not done correctly, allow us to fix the issue, for free, at your earliest convenience.

They did fantastic work, quickly, and even made allowances for a couple things not working as well as they would have liked. I even sprung last minute installs on them and they happily handled. Great folks to work with.

    Great service at first, made arrangements for a short notice appointment. Asked for an entire house to be re-keyed. Everything was done except our front door - different style of lock, and he didn't have the part, so he said he'd order it and return within a week. It's been several weeks. I've communicated since and he claimed that he forgot, then claimed confusion and says he doesn't understand what I'm asking for. I referred him to the invoice, which he said he would look up. Still nothing. I'm calling another locksmith.
    Chris H. Aug 26, 2016

    We asked for information on the part that we needed. They told us that we have written it on the invoice we looked at the invoice was nothing written on it. Just would have already been taken care of with a little communication I apologize for your "poor" experience.

    Chris totally rebuilt an interior door knob to my front door. If he had not taken the time and made the effort, I would have had to replace the outside lever to the door, something I did not want to do. Instead of having to replace the entire system he repaired the old, out of production door knob for me so I could keep the front door lever that I really like, something another locksmith said could not be done. He was fast, and very reasonably priced. Would recommend him in a heartbeat.

    Christopher was awesome!! As bad as it sounds, after a break-in :30 in the morning, we were left calling "anyone" who would answer the phone. The "company" that came out that night, were to say the least, scam artists. Cutting new wholes and make shifting to pretend to do the job they said they could do .. I honestly would have been better off just staying on site till I could have Christopher w/ Lock-It_Down Locksmith come out and fix it correctly. They left a nasty mess for Christopher to fix. The door is back to better than it originally started and looks AMAZING from where he had to start!! Great Job Sir..

    Our church building had an exterior door that was in dire need of being repaired. It wouldn't latch and the door closer had seen better days. Chris came out, looked at the situation and promptly gave us a written quote, which was very cost effective. Chris came out and completed the repair the same day we approved the quote. He's prompt and interested in making clients happy. We'll use him again, and happily recommend him.

    Chris was very professional and thorough while re-keying our rental property & minor repairs to our own homestead. He went above and beyond by sharing simple ticks/tricks to maintain the integrity of the locks, for example to use WD-40 every 3-4 months. I appreciated his customer service, keen knowledge and the fact that he arrived EARLY!!!!!! Great guy - will utilize his services in the future.

    Very nice very polite Kentucky until very professionally!! Did a good job quality of work was good... Price come in two & half times as I first expected. I felt that after the job got past $150 the trip charge could have bean droped or modified. I would use him agean after I shop a round more.
    Chris H. Apr 11, 2016

    Thanks Todd!! Unfortunately, the service call is a necessary evil. This helps us account for gas, tolls, van maintenance, tires, brakes, etc... Basically, without it, we would be unable to do house calls, if you will. We appreciate your feedback!!

    Chris was able to duplicate a key (with a chip) for my husband's brand new pickup truck, in a matter of minutes ~ and at a terrific price! We are so very pleased that he was able to do this for us... because we had been told that duplicate keys for our make and model were not even available yet! Chris really knows his business, and I would highly recommend him to anyone who needs a locksmith! He is licensed and bonded...and someone I really trust to handle all our card, code and key needs! I know you will feel the same way!

    Chris is very knowledgeable and very accommodating. He went out of his way three times to help my brother in law who just had surgery and who just had lost his wife due to a motorcycle accident. He made several keys and was reasonably priced and has a very good heart. I would highly recommend Chris to any business or residential person needing help. People that need car or motorcycle keys too. Chris rocks!

Q&A

What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
I do my best to be available when you need me to be. There are always going to be times that appointments times clash, but I'll always try to accommodate your schedule.
What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
If you're licensed/registered with the TXDPS, it is required to have 16 hours of continuing education credits every two years in order to keep your registration card. Of the 8 hours required every year, 1 hour must be an ethics class.
Do you have a standard pricing system for your service? If so, please share the details here.
We charge a service call to come out to the customer's location. For the most part, in a residential situation that service call is $75. Commercial calls have a service call of $85. Parts of Fort Worth, north of McKinney, and south of I-20, can see a higher rate but never higher than $85 ($95 for commercial). I like to tell people if you're going to call me out, get everything you need done taken care of while I'm there. MAXIMIZE THE VALUE OF THE SERVICE CALL. putting things off will only wined up costing you more in the long run because I charge a service call every time I come out. ? Re-keying locks is $18 per keyhole. This covers the majority of locks out there. There are exceptions to the rule and in some cases re-keying can cost as much as $25 per key hole. But this is a rare occasion. ? Lockouts are as follows: • Automotive - $65.00 (most vehicles) • Residential - $75.00 + tax • Commercial - $85.00 + tax ? Lost key replacement varies from case to case. Please inquire for details. these are only a few of our services that we offer (other services please ask). I'll tell you any price I charge, and even give you a copy of my price list if you would like All prices are subject to change. All quotes that are "sight unseen" may have fluctuation in the actual price on the invoice. I try to assess the situation, give an accurate quote before the work is done so everyone understands the pricing ahead of time.
How did you get started doing this type of work?
I got into locksmithing about 20 years ago or so, through a friend who is a locksmith. He got me hired, trained and set me on the path that I've been on for this long and will continue to be on into the future.
What types of customers have you worked with?
Thr majority of my work is automotive lockouts, residential and commercial lockouts, lock rekeying, and hardware installation.
Describe a recent project you are fond of. How long did it take?
I have a good friend named Maggie. Her brother-in-law was recently involved in a motorcycle accident that took the life of his wife. After being sent home from the hospital with 29 (+/-) staples in back from surgery, a neck brace, broken foot, and broken hand, he realized that the road crew that cleaned up after the accident had thrown away his keys. I went out made keys to his house made keys to his other motorcycle and met someone that I am amazed as walking around and serves as an inspiration for me that although you may be down you don't have to be out.
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
do some research get on the TXDPS website go to the Private Security Bureau and look that company up... make sure they're licensed. my license number is B19176. If they don't have a number that starts with a B, don't even call them, don't even bother with it. Call a real locksmith, not a scammer just trying to steal money from you.
What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?
when it comes to choosing a locksmith, the most important thing to consider is this: Is the company you're about to hire licensed by the state they operate in to do the work you need done? they should proudly display their license number on their vans on their business cards on their website... on everything. if they don't have a TXDPS license number, or the equivalent in another state, they are not an honest locksmith company trying to help people. They are trying to scam you into spending more money than you need to.
