Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

How much does it cost to have a deadbolt lock installed?

Installing a new deadbolt lock can improve your home security, especially if you think your current lock system has been compromised or there are unaccounted-for copies of your house keys in circulation. A professional locksmith can install a new deadbolt for you in a matter of hours. The national average locksmith price ranges from $70 to $100. Locksmith prices for installing deadbolts may be higher based on whether the professional provides the lock or you have it on hand, how many components the locking system includes, and how long the installation takes. The cost to purchase a lock yourself from a big-box store can range from approximately $70 to $225 or more, depending on quality and materials. Higher-security locks often take longer and therefore cost more to install.

How much does it cost for a car locksmith?

There are several reasons you may need a car locksmith. You may be locked out of your car (either with the keys inside or with no keys at all), you may have lost your car keys and need a new key, or you may want to make a duplicate car key. The national average locksmith price ranges from $70 to $100. Getting locked out of your car can be scary and overwhelming — especially if it’s cold and dark out. Fortunately, professional locksmiths provide round-the-clock assistance to help people in these circumstances.

Car lockouts are one of the main reasons people need a locksmith. Your locksmith’s price can depend on the type of car you have, the time of day (or night) it is, and where you are located. Locksmith pricing may be based on a flat rate, or pricing may be quoted to you after the locksmith determines the circumstances. For example, a flat rate for a car lockout could be $65 for standard vehicles. That price could be higher for after-hours or long-distance service, or service during extreme weather. If you have entirely lost your car keys, a locksmith can make you a new car key, but first they must verify that you are the owner of the car. Locksmiths can even program new car key fobs for you — often at a lower price than a dealership.

How much does it cost to make a new key for a car?

Locksmiths’ prices for making new car keys can vary depending on the make of your car as well as the time of day and location. The national average locksmith price ranges from $70 to $100, but duplicating a key may cost as little as $30, while extraction a key stuck in the ignition, cutting a new key and programming the fob can cost much more.

You might need a new car key if you have lost your key, the key broke in the ignition, the key is bent or damaged, or you just want a duplicate in case of emergency. You can request a duplicate of a key you have on hand, or you can have a new key made or cut if you have lost your original car keys. If you need to replace lost keys, you’ll need to first provide proof that you are the owner of the car along with the vehicle identification number (VIN). If you’re just locked out of your car but don’t need a key made, a locksmith may charge $65 to get you back in. Locksmith car key services are often far more affordable than dealership prices for new keys.

How does a locksmith open a locked door?

Locksmiths use specialized tools and techniques to open your door in the case of lockouts or lost keys. Trained locksmiths can pick your door lock with lock-picking tools such as a rake, a tension wrench, a half diamond or a hook. They may use a technique called bumping, which will work on pin tumbler locks, or as a last resort they may use a drill to remove your existing lock. The national average locksmith price ranges between $70 and $100. A locksmith can also replace your current lock system, re-key your locks if you have lost your keys, repair a broken lock, install a deadlock and more. Locksmiths not only help with front doors, they can help if you are locked out of your car, locked out of your mailbox, locked out of your shed … you name it. There may be an additional charge for emergency after-hours locksmith services. Check out our tips for smart hiring on Thumbtack.

If I could give more stars I would! I locked myself out of my house---ugh! In addition to putting in a request through Thumbtack, I called multiple locksmiths for a quote. Bek was the first to respond and gave me a fair quote immediately. After dickering with other companies, I realized their scams, and called Bek for the job. He was prompt, efficient, super nice, and went above and beyond to install new locks on my doors for an excellent price. I can't say enough great things about Bek. As a single woman, it was intimidating to call a locksmith service when I locked myself out of my house. Bek put made me feel comfortable and safe. He will be the first person I call if (when) I lock myself out again!

Absolutely phenomenal service! Bonlock Locksmith went above and beyond in completing the installation of my smart locks. He was available late and was very responsive and provided his expertise to guide me. When he arrived he had all the necessary tools to shave down my burglar door and make a new hole for a knob...he was PREPARED! His prices were extremely affordable. Will definitely be adding this company to my Rolodex of professionals. Thank you soooooo much for saving my vacation rental, don’t know what I would have done with out you!!!!!!!!!

I hired this company to replace my front door lock with a new lock I had purchased. The man they sent over came with his wife, left her in the car, then flirted with me during the job. I asked him to arrive around 12noon because I had an appt. 30 min. from my home at 2:00pm and I have anxiety over being late or rushed. He showed up at 1:09pm and told me that the job would only take 15 min...At 1:48pm he was finished!! The credit card payment system they have didn't work after several attempts, the ATM in my building was out of service, and I had to leave. The company and this man called me all day long even during the appt. he knew I was at even though I assured him I would make sure to pay and they knew where I lived. I called my bank and they had thought it was fraud so the charge was pending and I let them know it was legitimate so it would process. This didn't stop the locksmith from continuing to harass me for days. I will never use this company again.
