Wise Locksmith Chris Weissman NOT so wise afterall…. Kenmore, Washington – The not so wise locksmith in Kenmore. I had a very regrettable experience with Chris Wiessman, the owner. I am a General Contractor and I contacted Chris last July and requested a quote for a Kaba LD470. This is a combination lock with an ADA handle and a stainless finish. Chris quoted me $135 for each of them plus $20 for shipping. I told him to order me 2 of them. After almost 2 weeks of waiting Chris contacted me and said they were in. However, Chris demanded that I pay him cash instead of with a check or credit card. I reminded him that I was a contractor and I could not pay him cash. I also told him that I would defiantly need a sales receipt. Chris told me that if I didn’t pay him in cash that he would need charge me sales tax even though I have a resale permit. . I told him this was unacceptable. He then said in that case that I would have to pay $390 for them even though he quoted me only $290. I refused this quote as well. Chris changed his mind and then agreed to sell me them for what I was quoted. I then went to the store and gave Chris a check. He gave me 2 random boxes and Chris twice asserted they were the Kaba locksets that I ordered. I took them to my shop and looked them over. They were a combination lock but instead of a Kaba they were a Combination Lock model #400. This is an entirely different manufacturer and part number. They did look similar, so the next day I tried to install them, but I discovered at the jobsite that they were both missing many parts. That day I tried to call Chris 3 times and complain. Each time I got a hold of James and he assured me that Chris would call me back, but he never did. The next day I reluctantly decided to cancel my check since it was clear that I was deceived by Chris into buying a set of locks that were of no measurable value. Chris Later called me admitted that he lied about the lock sets, but said it was my fault because I was only willing to pay $135.00. Chris is simply the most dishonest and unprofessional locksmith that I have ever dealt with and I would strongly discourage everyone from patronizing the Wise Locksmith.
