I called in a panic when the tumbler fell out of the deadbolt. I had no other access so it was a relief when American Locks & Keys was able to meet me during my lunch hour. The employee was professional and a creative problem solver since there were issues with the lock and door. The employee was informative too. I will definitely call them again.

I was extremely happy with the work done by Joe, he was extremely polite, removed the shoes before entering the home, recommended various alternatives for repair work. I also got other locks repaired at a reasonable price. I would actually like to give both the company and Joe 6 star because they went over and beyond my expectations.

Incredible service from Joe and David! Same day service. From our initial contact, everything was completed in an hour. David was punctual, professional, courteous and even educated me about another lock situation. Highly recommend them. They live up to their reviews. Will definitely use again. Thank you. Bleux Lee

I had a great experience and will be using this company again in The near future. He walked me stop by step with the lock and made sure I programmed it right before leaving.

Joe was very knowledgeable, and took the time to explain what had happened with my lock & what to look out for in the future. I felt very well taken care of as a client. I will absolutely use American Locks & Keys in the future & will definitely ask for Joe.
