Residential Locksmith FAQ

Can I use the same key for all my locks?

Yes, this is called “keying alike” and it’s a service that we at Shearline Locksmiths provide. It allows for greater convenience by reducing the number of keys you need to carry. As long as one key fits in all of your locks, we can key them alike. If not, we may need to change the hardware.

Are you a licensed, bonded, and insured locksmith in Chicago?

Absolutely. Shearline Locksmiths is licensed, bonded, and insured in Chicago. We adhere strictly to all regulations to provide our customers with the highest level of professional service.

Do you charge a service fee to come out for locksmith service?

Yes, we charge a service 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.

Can I purchase a lock set that is keyed alike?

Yes, we can provide lock sets that are keyed alike. This can greatly simplify access to different parts of your home.

Can a broken lock be repaired or replaced?

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

How long does it take to install a new lock?

Typically, it takes about 30 minutes to an hour 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.

What grade of door lock is the most secure for my home?

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 applications.

Is it possible to open a door lock with a swipe of a credit card?

This method, often seen in movies, only works on a certain type of lock and is generally not effective on modern locks that have been installed properly, locks with a dead latch feature, or deadbolts. We strongly discourage trying this as it can damage the lock and your card.

What is the difference between right-handed and left-handed doors?

The terms right-handed and left-handed doors refer to the side of the door the hinges are located when viewed from the outside of a room. If the hinges are on the right, it’s a right-handed door, and vice versa.

Are all locks able to be picked?

While many standard locks such as Schlage and Kwikset can be picked, some high-security locks are designed to resist picking. However, a professional locksmith has other methods of opening a lock if picking is not possible.
