We just have a thing for making things match!
You may be able to buy and replace locks yourself, depending on the model involved. Nevertheless, because the lock types can make an endless list, there is an even longer list of different setbacks, offsets and other pertinent dimensions to consider.

if that’s what you want, then we will make it so. Keys with special markings that instruct against duplication are a way to assert that the consent of the owner is needed before anything can be done to the key. There has to be a letter of authorization from the owner and some paperwork from the manufacturer. Nevertheless, Locksmith & Security reserves the right to refuse duplication requests for keys that are marked to restrict duplication.
We make sure that paying us is one of the easiest processes when doing business with us. If the person that will be paid for the job isn’t around, no problem.

Much training goes into becoming a professional locksmith. For some, their area of expertise is automobile locks, and for others, their forte is defeating door locks. Although, most locksmiths are able to handle both sides, as long as they have field experience. But it is best to hire the locksmith that best fits your challenge.
We don’t recommend working with a company that doesn’t perform background checks on their employees. Most times, not doing so could almost mean you are working on ghosts. These locksmiths are coming in to work on your business or home. Hence, you need to protect yourself as much as you can. Background checks might be the difference between having a burglary or not. Still, all our workers are background-checked and verified.
