  • Standard house keys

    Standard house keys that we cut are only $3.00 per key and we can cut as many keys as you need right out of our service vehicle. Depending on the brand and level of security, high security keys will run from $10.00 per key, due to the fact that these keys are restricted and cost significantly more for us to purchase. We guarantee that all of the keys we cut will work properly before we leave your home. We also guarantee our service work for 30 days. If you have an issue on a service call within that window, please contact us at 417-316-1325 or email us at locksmith@jrlockandkey.net

    Locksets, Deadbolts, etc...

    Because there are so many different brands and types of locks with various functions and grades that we can order, we cannot give exact pricing on certain products unless we specifically know the item(s) we need to install for your particular job. We will provide you with an accurate estimate before we perform any job to confirm exactly what is ordered and to make sure you are satisfied with the selection and price.

  • Q:  I am moving into a new home, should I re-key the locks? They seem to be working properly. 

    The answer is definitely YES! I'm sure the previous owner was nice and had someone that they trusted with their house keys. This does not mean you can trust those people who still have a key now. How many neighbors, old baby sitters, cleaning people, contractors, or maintenance personnel are still walking around with the same key to your new home? Change the locks and then give new keys to the people you and you alone trust.

  • Q:  Why do I have to wiggle my keys in the lock to make it work? 

    As keys age over time, the cuts of the key tend to wear down causing your keys to stick or force you to jiggle or wiggle the key in the lock to make it work. Most likely the keys you were given have probably been copied several times. The more a key gets copied, especially from another copy, the worse the problem will become. Plus, most hardware stores (even the big names like Lowes,  Menard's, True Value, etc.) do not calibrate their duplicating machines as often as they should, sometimes going for years between calibrations. Our key machines are calibrated every month so you can assure yourself that our keys work every time. Remember, making a copy of a bad key will not fix the problem.

    Q:  I can install the hardware, why not just buy it at the home center and do it myself? 

    Remember, a $10 lock is just that, a $10 lock. Locks are one of those things where you get what you pay for. Products typically sold in home repair or hardware stores are of a lower quality than what a locksmith would order. Their shelves are stacked with low quality products meant to increase profits for the manufacturer and the retailer. High quality products that a locksmith will carry will offer varying characteristics such as being pick and drill resistant or being bump proof. Locksmiths can also offer access control options, protection against the unauthorized duplication of keys, and a better peace of mind. Plus, most people have no idea what brand they're buying. You may have Kwikset locks and you go out and, without even realizing it, buy a Schlage lock that is not compatible with your existing locks. Now you have to carry a separate key for that one lock whereas a locksmith would have ordered exactly what you needed and keyed the lock to match the one you use now. The question you have to ask is what is your time really worth and do I truly know what I'm doing? But we understand, it's your home, not ours. If you still insist on installing the lock on your own, you can always call us at any time with questions or if you want to purchase directly through us. 

  • Q:  My key does not insert or withdraw easily or it has difficulty turning. 

    First spray the lock with a cleaner/degreaser. This can be found at most auto parts stores, but can even be found at some hardware stores. The best cleaner out there is Houdini, which is readily available online.  It's a little expensive, but worth it. Don’t be afraid to spray too much, but have a paper towel handy to blot up the excess. Spray the cleaner into the keyhole and onto the bolt mechanism. Move the bolt in and out to allow the cleaner to penetrate into the lock. Insert and remove the key several times to lubricate and loosen any corrosion on the pins. Do not take the lock apart if you are not confident you can put it back together. If that does not work, call us at 417-316-1325 and we will make an appointment to come out and determine if the lock is damaged in some way or if the lock just needs to be re-keyed.
