Many people don't know that locksmiths can make keys for file cabinets and office furniture. We do many of the roadside assistance things that AAA does, like get you into your car.

  • Are you licensed by the state of California?
  • Can your license be verified? Where?
  • How long have you been in your trade?
  • What kind of bonding and insurance do you have?
  • Do you have a surety bond?
  • Do you have a state contractor's license?

Basically, we will provide training, education, service and support.

Emergency auto and residential lock-outs are very common. We also make keys for office furniture like cabinets and desks.

I recently installed 40 electric strikes, with a master panel and 10 slave panels, readers, in a church diocese office.

I do everything from simple key duplication and re-keys to major projects including access panels, readers, mag locks etc.

I recommend customers, especially residential ones, to be willing to spend money on quality equipment.

Many people don't realize that the locksmiths industry is notorious for attracting scam artists and con men. Be very careful when you hire a locksmith, and make sure he has a good reputation and valid licenses.

You should find out if they are licensed, bonded and if they have liability insurance. Is there a state consumer agency that oversees the industry. What kind of bonding do they have

I was a buyer and merchandiser for hardware stores. I got into being a locksmith as a value-added service for my hardware customers.

I'm often asked if I install burglar alarms and security systems. I prefer to refer this type of work to alarm companies. My expertise is hardware and installing retrofit hardware.



My son locked the bedroom door. I didn't have a key for it, and it was never locked before. The locksmith came over and even took his shoes off, since we don't wear shoes in the house, and unlocked it in less than a minute. Then he made us 3 keys and charged only 65.00. What a deal!
