Lock Installation and Repair

Jim did a great job. Got in contact right away, showed up the next day. His estimate was fair and thorough and he did good quick work. We just moved into our house and in less than two hours, Jim changed four locks, added a dead bolt, and fixed a broken dead bolt that did not align to the door frame. Really nice guy and easy to work with--I highly recommend him.

Lock Installation and Repair

Did an unbelievable job. On time, very fairly priced and quote was accurate. Re-keyed 7 locks and advised on any further repairs needed. Would hire again without question. Highly recommended!

Jim showed up on time, and worked efficiently. He was also very pleasant, and the price at the end was exactly what was discussed. We'll call Linehan Lock again in the future when we require these services!

Jim exceeded my expectations from start to finish. He was very responsive, answered my questions fully and then explained the entire lock change process as it was happening in real time. He has at least 20 years of experience and is in no way a fly-by-night type of shady locksmith that one can come across via other means. If you want someone reliable, go with Linehan L&K, I can give you my assurance you won't be disappointed.

Lock Installation and Repair

Thanks to Jim, I now have a matching key for both front and back doors. Originally, the locks were mismatched with two different lock manufacturers. I also didn't have the keys to either door. Not a problem, Jim was able to still open the tumblers and change the locks in short order. Now one key opens both doors and the dead bolts. Jim responded to my quote quickly, efficiently and inexpensively with same day, in home service. I would definitely recommend Jim and Linehan Lock and Key and trust his expertise for future services. Very satisfied...Keith R.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    Over 30 years experience in the Locksmith industry

  • What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?

    If a Massachusetts Locksmith tells you he has a "locksmith license"....he is lying. There is NO licensure for Locksmiths in Ma. If a price sounds too good to be true..as in a $29.00 service call....then it is a scam. Be wary of fake handymen pretending to be locksmiths. They will end up costing you more and you'll get less for your money and possibly a wrecked door.

  • What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?

    In what condition are the current locks? Are new locks necessary or is a simple re-key (making new keys work existing locks) all that's needed?

Not what you’re looking for?

No problem: we have pros for every job.
