Yakov's prices were the best of the three locksmiths I called - they were reasonable and fair. He was very responsive and answered messages promptly. And most importantly, when he showed up he was very competent. The man knows his stuff! He didn't just repair the broken latch on my door, he reinstalled the knob so that it was more secure than before. I asked him about installing a deadbolt on another door in the house. I was worried about finding a deadbolt that matched the finishes of the knobs. He researched and found a matching deadbolt that was inexpensive and secure. Once again he not only did a great job with the deadbolt, but noticed that one of the plates on the knob was backwards, and also that the latch wasn't fully catching so the door could be pushed open with just a little force. He fixed all that, at no extra charge, and did a great job with the deadbolt too. Very happy with him, will use him again for any locksmith work. Highly recommended.
Came in. Rescued tenant. Chsrged only 50 dollars. Really smart friendly and great sense of humor.perfect for a stressful situation! Highly recommend!
PAY $50 TO BREAK YOUR LOCK. You spend $50 for the man to come (although quickly) to unlock the deadbolt with a lock pick kit you can buy yourself with a technique you can teach yourself through online videos. Save your money and get a kit and learn. It will save you money... and the follow up money you will have to pay once Yakov comes. Here is where the fun part about Yakov comes in... he broke my deadbolt lock in the process of unlocking it and refuses to fix it but even better, he refuses to acknowledge that he broke it. So essentially, I paid $50 for Yakov to come to my house in twenty minutes to BREAK my deadbolt lock so I can get in. so I can pay to have it fixed. At least acknowledge that you broke the lock. This is Brooklyn and now my front door cant lock. Thank you Yakov for breaking my deadbolt lock. As a young woman in her early twenties, I feel entirely safe now.
So I'm thoroughly impressed and appreciative for the service I received from Yakov. He got to me fast, he worked fast, his price was very fair and his work was efficient. He did not stop until the locks he installed for me were functioning smoothly and effortlessly. We had purchased our own locks and he didn't seem bothered by that at all. He was professional and knowledgeable on the phone, giving me a quote without hesistation. When he finished the work, he honored the price he told me. I had called other locksmiths that had good reveiews on Yelp before reaching out to Yakov. They were surprisingly very rude, overpriced and they didn't seem interested in helping me. I had planned on scheduling the work to be done on the next day but Yakov was willing to come to me the same evening without a problem. I'd refer him to others and use him again.
Super amazing. Yacob said he would be there in 5 and he was. Very professional and kind. Was able to pick the lock instead of break it. Only $50. Hope I never have to call again but will if I need to.
Got locked out of my house this guy showed up asap and replaced the part that was broke for a very affordable price very honest as well they tried to help me fix it over the phone before anything highly recommend.
Got locked out of my apt and called Y&B Locksmith. He showed up in less than 10 minutes, and opened my door in less than 1 minute. Cost was very reasonable as well. Would highly recommend.
Called first to inquire about duplicating a high security key. The man who answered asked some pointed questions to help decipher my key type and whether they could do it, the cost, etc. The hours displayed online weren't accurate, but I was informed that the locksmith is connected to a copy shop next door that is open til 8:00 and he told me they'd be able to duplicate my key. I went and they did at a lower price I was quoted at another key duplication place in the area. It is not a polished establishment, per se-small, older and buzzing with various services inside commensurate with the feel of other Jewish establishments in the neighborhood. But there was order to the chaos and the shopkeepers addressed me very quickly and with courtesy when I entered. Diverse clientele all with a friendly and satisfied neighborhoody air. This will be my go-to for key duplication in Crown Heights. Oh, make sure you bring the card that goes with your high security key.
