Residential Locksmith FAQ From West Coast Locksmith

Here are some of our most commonly asked questions about our locksmith services for your home.

Can I use the same key for all my locks?

Yes, this is called “keying alike” and it’s a service that West Coast Locksmith provides all the time for our customers in the Greater Los Angeles area. Using one key for all of your locks gives you way more convenience by reducing the number of keys you need to carry. As long as one of your keys can slide into each lock cylinder, we’re able to key them alike. If the key does not go in, it cannot be keyed alike, we will have to change the locks to make them match.

Yes, most do. West Coast Locksmith does charge a service call fee to cover the cost of our locksmith coming to your location. This fee varies depending on the distance, the time of day, and the type of service you require. We’ll alsoways give you an up front and honest quote.

Can I purchase a lock set that is keyed alike?

Yes, you can buy a lock set from us that are keyed alike. This can greatly simplify access to different parts of your home.

Can a broken lock be repaired or replaced?

Yes, normally a broken lock can either be repaired or replaced, depending on the severity of the damage and the specific type of lock. We always try to repair rather than replace it. If it’ll save you money, we’ll do it.

How long does it take to install a new lock on my house?

Typically, it takes about 30-45 minutes to install a new lock, although this can vary based on the specifics of the lock and whether or not the door is fully prepped for the new lock. Oftentimes, our skilled residential locksmiths in Los Angeles will need to re-drill and fix the door to ensure proper lock function.

What is the most secure door lock for my home?

Locks are categorized by Grades. Grade 1, 2, or 3. We usually recommend Grade 2 locks for the best home security. These are the second highest grade locks as rated by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI), only surpassed by Grade 1 locks which are typically reserved for commercial locksmith applications.

Can I unlock a door lock with my credit card?

We certainly don’t encourage trying this as it can damage the lock and your card. Using a credit card to unlock doors only works on a certain type of lock and is not effective. Latch guards and dead latch features make it nearly impossible to use a credit card to open a lock.

Can you pick any kind of lock?

At West Coast Locksmith, our technicians are highly trained. We can help with lockout service in Los Angeles. We can safely pick open many standard locks such as Schlage and Kwikset, Baldwin, MasterLock, and more. However, some high-security locks are pick resistant. If you want extra security, consider a high-security lock from us.
