I had a great experience working with Gary. He installed 3 deadbolt lock sets for my home and he took great care to make sure everything was installed perfectly. He also cleaned up any debris from the job and made sure I tested all keys to ensure everything worked as it should. I would recommend him to anyone needing locksmith services.

I cannot say enough good things about Gary from Expert Lock & Security!!! I needed a deadbolt repaired/re-keyed and reached out to Gary. I'd been told I needed a NEW deadbolt. Gary got back in touch with me, via chat on Thumbtack and we spoke about my needs. Gary asked me to send some photos and I did. He responded quickly saying I needed a NEW cylinder and NOT a whole new deadbolt. It was a savings of over $75 (from other quotes/estimates I'd received). I called Gary and set-up an appointment. He arrived right on time and it took him minutes to confirm I needed a cylinder only. He was able to replace the cylinder and he used my existing key to match what I have so I didn't need new keys. He even threw in a better key than the one I'd gotten at MinuteKey or wherever it came for. Gary was honest, punctual and efficient. He takes Cash, Checks, most Credit Cards and Zelle. If you want someone with ethics, who works quickly, charges reasonable fees and is friendly, too, call Gary. You won't regret it! I sure don't!!!

Gary is the best! He was able to come out same-day to rekey my new home after closing, and he was a pleasure to work with. Gary is incredibly knowledgeable and skilled, and he even offers free key copies as part of his service, which saved me a trip to the hardware store! His prices are reasonable, fair, and consistent, and I will be using him for all my future locksmith needs.
