Scott rekeyed our home and was prompt, super knowledgeable, and so nice! Highly recommend!
Tessa Jackson
American Lock & Key Company were my guardian angels today! I was extremely pleased from the minute I called Max and Andy to request help with a broken door deadbolt to when the friendly visiting service technician, Scott Crocker, successfully completed the job with confidence and ease. Scott answered all my questions thoroughly and made sure I knew how to operate the door correctly. Scott mentioned Max had told him we have to do something for this lady because they realized I was in an unsafe situation without my deadbolt. Originally, they were going to schedule me for tomorrow. However, I greatly appreciated their extra thoughtfulness to see me today. They helped to restore my faith that there are still good people in this world. I would highly recommend American Lock and Key company to anyone in need of their services. Out of five stars, they are definitely a five-star company.

The locksmith, Scott C., called ahead and arrived early within the anticipated time window. He immediately started to work removing a non-functioning door knob lock set, and diagnosed it’s problem, showing us the defective parts. We opted to replace the old door knob with a new one, which he installed in record time. He explained things as he worked, and was very patient in answering our questions. Scott was not only a clearly skilled locksmith, but he was also a good educator to us on locks in general, and was very easy to talk in answering our questions. Scott was a very neat worker throughout the job, and took extra care when he had to grind a small amount off the metal strike plate to make sure the metal dust fell outside the house, by placing his body in a position to block the dust. Scott was very proficient, friendly, polite, and I took special note when he entered our home and greeted me, that he removed his hat. That is almost unheard of these days. Scott is a true gentleman in addition to being an outstanding locksmith.
