Have a lock fitted/fitted on

Greetings,
If a friend of mine said that he had to have a new lock fitted on the front door, and I bumped into him a few days later, would it be correct to ask: "Have you had a new lock fitted on yet?" or "on" is redundant? I think that on should not be left out. Do you agree?

    Thanks, Pete. Yes, I agree and that's probably what I would say. I came across a sentence, in which "fit" is used instead of "install" and that's the reason I used it. Install does sound better, though.

    Thank you for your help :).
