Locksmiths are skilled tradies who install, adjust and repair commercial, residential and automotive locks and security devices. Locksmiths fabricate and duplicate locking keys, change lock combinations, and bypass locks when authorised. Their skill and knowledge in installing and repairing conventional security hardware and locksets take them to work in residential, commercial and industrial establishments that require varying levels of physical security to protection them from unauthorised entry.

There is a common misconception that locksmiths only pick locks. While it is true that this is their best known task, they also do several other things:

Key Cutting - A locksmith will be able to cut keys for any type of lock (cabinet, garage, back door, padlock etc.)

Window & Door Locks - One of the most common areas of locksmiths is the standard door and window lock - most locksmiths will be able to supply, fit, service, and repair door and window locks

Security Safe Services - Locksmiths are able to open safes, repair, supply and install and even move large vaults and security safes

Auto Locksmith - Some locksmiths offer an auto locksmithing service whereby they can get you into your vehicle if you’ve locked the keys in the vehicle, repair car key fobs, program remote keys and transponder keys which is a specialised area of auto locksmithing, or simply provide a new key for your vehicle

Access control - Some professional locksmiths will be able to specify, supply and install electronic access control systems

24 Hour Emergency Locksmith - If you are locked out, lost your keys or just need the locks replaced & changed after hours service is available from some locksmiths

When a locksmith installs locks in a building, he or she usually becomes that building's default locksmith, because of his or her presumed familiarity with the building's locks. Some locksmiths retain extra key sets, by request, to gain quick entry when needed. They also keep records of the types of locks used in a building, replacement or repair work undertaken, and any other relevant information, such as connection with a security system which demands that a code is entered when a door is unlocked.
