About Our Locksmith Services in Dallas, TX

At one time, locksmiths solely specialized in duplicating keys and installing new locks. Today, though, Texas Premier Locksmith in Dallas, Texas, does it all. Read on to discover the full line of locksmith services we provide.

Residential Service

When you think of residential locksmiths services, gaining entry after a lock-out and duplicating house keys probably come to mind. While we certainly handle those jobs, we also provide a wide range of home security solutions. We install new locks, repair old locks, perform re-keying, and can even help you get into your safe.

Speaking of safes, it is always best to utilize a residential safe for your valuables, even if you have a top-notch home security system. We can help you choose between the many assorted sizes and types of safes on the market today.

Commercial Services

Owning a commercial property means handling a huge range of security concerns, from fire codes to ADA (Americans with Disabilities Act) standards to access control, along with a mind-boggling array of lock options. We can provide a security consultation to help you develop a detailed security plan. We will even make recommendations for the upgrades you might need to better protect your property.

In many cases, commercial property owners need to control access to certain parts of the building, allowing some employees to enter while barring others. The most convenient solution is an advanced access control system, complete with keypads or ID cards and a multi-level master key system. This ensures that you and your management team can access the entire building while granting employees only the access they need.

Commercial safes are generally fireproof and offer enhanced security over residential models. However, they can be quite complex, and every model is a little bit different. We would be happy to consult with you to determine which safe will best meet your unique needs.

Security Services

Beyond deadbolts and keyless entry systems, many homeowners and commercial property owners desire an addition level of security. We can install advanced, high-tech electronic locks, security camera systems, and intercoms for vastly improved security. Schedule a consultation with one of our security specialists to ensure that the system you choose is the best for your situation.

Auto Services

Today’s car keys are far more complex than their predecessors, featuring such advancements as keyless locking and ignition mechanisms. As a result, they generally cannot be duplicated at your local big box store or home improvement shop. At Texas Premier Locksmith, we have the skills and experience to go beyond lockout services and replacing car door locks. We can also change the batteries in your key fob, program your smart keys, and even repair the ignition switch—all with the goal of getting you back on the road as quickly as possible.

Emergency Services

Emergency locksmiths services are available to anyone who needs immediate assistance. These include people who have been locked out of their homes, businesses, or cars, as well as those who have lost their keys entirely and those with a problem such as a broken-off ignition key.

Other jobs should wait until regular business hours, such as scheduling a security consultation or upgrading door hardware. As a general rule, call for emergency services if you need immediate help in accessing your vehicle or property, or with keeping your property safe. Otherwise, wait to call during business hours.

Licensed & Insured Locksmiths

Whether you have just moved into a new home and need new locks installed or you desire to have a higher level of security at your office, Texas Premier Locksmith is here to get the job done perfectly. Contact us today for the absolute best locksmith service available.

What is a lockout service?
A lockout service is when you call a locksmith to help you get into your home, apartment, office, or car after you have lost your key or if your key gets stuck in the door. Since you can misplace your keys at any time, lockout services typically happen on an emergency or a same-day basis.
Can a locksmith open a house that is not yours?
In order for a locksmith to open your house, you will have to prove that you own or currently rent the property. Your proof of ownership can be a title, address on your driver’s license, or property tax record that can be found online? If you cannot provide this information to the locksmith, you will need to ask someone who has these documents to be available onsite to verify this information. In the event that none of this is possible, there are some other more time-intensive ways to verify ownership.
How do you get into a locked car?
There are many different strategies that professional locksmiths can use to gain access to a locked car. Locksmiths can reprogram vehicle keyless entry systems, use immobilizer re-flashing to fix an overzealous car immobilizer, or extract a key using a broken key extractor. While there are also other tools that a locksmith can use to unlock a car, but the most common tool is a slim jim that’s inserted between the glass and the window.
How do you rekey a house?
Rekeying your house involves keeping an existing lock but changing the key that opens it. A locksmith uses the current key or pick the lock to change how the pins inside the lock functions. In most cases, rekeying is quicker and more cost-effective than replacing a lock.
Are locksmiths expensive?

No, locksmiths are not expensive—and they’re certainly cheaper than trying to open a car or home door yourself and causing damage that needs to be repaired! We charge a $30 service fee, plus additional charges for labor and materials. Before we come out, we can provide you with an estimate over the phone to give you an idea of what to expect.

What's the difference between rekeying and replacing locks?

Many people use these two terms interchangeably, but they mean very different things. When a lock is changed or replaced, it is removed altogether and a new lock is installed in its place. When a lock is rekeyed, only the key pins in the locks are changed. Customers often call us asking to have their locks changed or replaced when rekeying is sufficient. Rekeying can be used when you lose your keys, move to a new home, or want to prevent someone who has a key from entering your home. Changing locks should be reserved for when you want to upgrade to a more secure lock option or when you want to make aesthetic changes to your locks.

Is it cheaper to rekey or replace locks?

Rekeying locks is cheaper than replacing them. This is because only the pins are being replaced when locks are rekeyed and it’s a relatively simple and quick job. When a lock is replaced, you’re paying for more expensive parts (a new lock vs. new pins) and additional labor costs because changing locks takes longer than rekeying them.

Can you change locks yourself?

You can certainly try. If you’re the handy type, you might not have a problem changing locks yourself. Remember, though, that the security of your home is on the line, so if you have trouble changing your locks, don’t hesitate to call a professional to help finish the job rather than leaving your house unlocked while you try to figure out the problem.

Should you change locks after buying a house?

Referring back to the question about replacing locks vs. rekeying them, it’s not necessary to change locks when you move unless you’re unhappy with the way they look, but it’s a good idea to rekey them. While the previous owners will hand over their keys at the closing, you can’t be sure they haven’t kept other copies. Even if they’re trustworthy, you have no idea who they’ve given copies of keys to over the years. Neighbors, pet-sitters, exes, estranged family members, contractors, cleaning services—the list goes on. For your safety and peace of mind, we highly recommend rekeying your locks the day you move in.

Can I get a duplicate car key without the original?

Even if you don’t have the original key, we can program a new car key for you. In order to do this, we’ll need you to provide us with your vehicle identification number (VIN) as well as the year, make, and model of your car.

Is your emergency locksmith service available 24 hours a day?

Yes, our emergency locksmith service is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week. That said, we ask that you reserve this service for actual emergencies like being locked out of your home or car. For other services, like changing locks or making duplicate keys, please call us during our normal business hours listed above.

Will my insurance pay for the cost of a locksmith?

Sometimes your car insurance will pay the cost of a car locksmith and very rarely, your homeowners insurance may cover the cost of a residential locksmith. You will need to verify coverage with your insurance provider. We require payment at the time of service.

How long does it take for you to come out for emergency locksmith service?
This depends on your location in Dallas and where our technicians are currently working. We prioritize all emergency calls and leave as soon as we are able. Typically, someone from our team will meet you in under an hour.
