In this Undercover Locksmith Test, Indiana’s News Leader WTHR called several locksmiths with a request to unlock a car with keys inside. In nearly every case, they found a pattern of suspect behavior (long delays, hidden fees, and telling customers that their car is difficult to open). Before long, they realized how many out-of-state, unqualified locksmiths you can find online!

Luckily, the team at WTHR also called the truly local locksmiths, who passed the Undercover Locksmith Test with flying colors. When the undercover news called Pop-A-Lock, they received an accurate, bottom-line price over the phone. When Pop-A-Lock arrived, it took just 28 seconds to unlock the news staffer’s car, for less than $50.

Truth is, you don’t have to fuss with scam locksmiths. Choose Pop-A-Lock for honest, efficient locksmith services whenever you find yourself in need!
