Lock Installation and Repair

Quick response to inquiry, onsite visit scheduled following day and a detailed estimate was provided for expected job. Locksmith arrived as scheduled, engaged in consultation, and installed a new mortise lockset that involved a major modification of door and frame. Very, very satisfied with high quality work, expertise, precise craftsmanship, and clear flow of communication to the completion of installation. I intend to hire The Flying Locksmiths to complete my whole home mortise lockset installation in future. They are the BEST of the BEST. A+++++

Lock Installation and Repair

Perfect! Quickly helped with all our locks! 30 minutes later and all three of our exterior doors were the same. They let me know that some of the locks don’t work with others not of the same brand beforehand so I could switch out one of the locks. A little bit more expensive than the handy man who quoted me, but I’d rather have something like this done by a professional! Well worth the cost.

Door Repair

Paul at Flying Locksmiths helped us install a new Amazon Key camera and lock system, and they did a terrific job. They were easy to schedule with, punctual, worked quickly, and even came back for a second visit when the first lock we ordered turned out to be defective. Would definitely recommend working with them!

Door Repair

Our back door was not closing properly. Rick came out, as scheduled, and got to work right away. He provided a quick fix and explained the next step to complete the job. We received a quote and he is scheduled to come out this week to finish up.

Door Repair

Paul was great with getting back to me quickly with quotes and scheduling the appointment for the door to get fixed. Everything was explained thoroughly, the quote was broken down by service, labor, parts, etc., and they did a great job fixing my front door. I'm very happy with the Flying Locksmiths!
