Frequently Asked Questions About Residential Locksmith Services

You can expect to pay between $50 and $200 for a house lockout service, depending on the job. 

If you need a locksmith to install a new lock, you can expect to pay around $100-$300 for a standard deadbolt, depending on the brand and quality of the lock. 

Expect to pay more for locks with additional features or ones that must be custom-fit to your door.

You could try to use a credit card (though it’s inadvisable) or a butter knife to jimmy the door open. If that doesn’t work, you can call a locksmith to help you get into your house.

Call us today—we’re ready to help, 24/7.

If you’re locked out of your house, your best bet is to call a locksmith. 

But if you’re just looking for a way to get into your house in case you forget your key, here are a few methods:

  • Try using a wire coat hanger. Straighten out the hanger and use it to manipulate the locking mechanism from the other side of the door.
  • Use a credit card (again, be careful not to break it) or other thin plastic card. Slide the card between the door and the frame, and try to pry open the door that way.
