3 I guessed at. Not a locksmith. I believe he worked at a hardware type store. Probably I'm wrong, but I'm thinking his occupation wasn't locksmithing.

The Ken Berry character("Vinton Harper") in Mama's Family WAS a locksmith; the company that he worked for on the show was a regional company had stores all over the area where the Harper's lived, and, the store where Vinton worked at was in a mall.
