Professional Lock Installation

Our locksmiths are highly trained in the installation of all types of locks including high-security deadbolts, keypad locks, and smart locks for your home and business.

It’s tempting to do it yourself when it comes to door lock installation. It’s not a major home improvement, right? But there are factors to consider like accidentally damaging a brand new door or the frame, improper installation, a lock that doesn’t work properly after installation, not to mention compromised security. It’s always recommended you call a skilled professional to do this work for you to get it right the first time.

Lock Installation Services

The experts at Shearline Locksmiths can advise you as to what locks are best for which doors, particularly exterior doors which should have the most secure locks available. The cost to install locks can vary depending on labor and the type and brand of lock chosen. We have years of lock installation experience and provide the following services:

  • Smart lock installation – a smart lock replaces the bolt on your doors, and is an electromechanical lock that locks and unlocks with a signal from another device i.e., a phone – an advantage to a smart lock is no longer worrying about losing a physical key
  • Door lock installation – we have experience installing doorknob locks, deadbolts, cam locks, keypads, and more
  • Residential lock installation – we can install fresh locks on doors for your entire home, with no damage to existing or new doors
  • Commercial lock installation – commercial properties typically require different locks compared to residential locks – we recommend the strongest locks possible for your business or commercial needs, i.e. an ANSI Grade 1 security lock that can withstand high traffic areas and is known for superior security
  • Mortise lock installation – a mortise lock has heavier duty interior construction and can thus withstand a higher number of operations – recommended for high security but also comes in a wide range of design options
  • Door hardware installation – this includes the doorknobs, which in turn often include a lock
  • Replacing locks – a broken or old lock can cause a security issue and we will quickly swap in a new lock with no damage to the door

We have rekey discount specials and offer alarm systems as well.

Lock Installation/Changing FAQ

What’s the difference between a standard and a high-security lock?

Standard locks provide basic security, while high-security locks have advanced features and are built with reinforced parts to prevent lock picking, bumping, drilling, and unauthorized key duplication.

How long does it take to install a lock?

It typically takes about 30-60 minutes to install a lock, depending on the type of lock, type of door, if the door and frame are properly prepped, and where it’s being installed.

What is a master key system?

A master key system is a tiered system that allows individual keys to open specific doors, while a master key opens all doors. This is ideal for businesses or multi-unit residences that need to create segmented access to various doors.

What are the benefits of smart locks?

Smart locks provide keyless entry, remote access, and the ability to track who comes and goes. They can also be integrated with other smart home systems. Smart locks provide you with options to gain access without your physical key. If you lose your keys or get locked out often, a smart lock is a smart choice.

Do you charge a service fee to come to my location for a lock installation?

Yes, a service fee applies to cover the locksmith’s time and travel to your location. It also helps cover fuel, insurance, and other business expenses.
