Max was very helpful making a recommendation for which lock I should buy for my particular door. Scott came out to install it. He was very professional and walked me through the programming process and made sure that I understood how to set and use the new lock. I highly recommend this company!
Mimi Siff

Kathleen Tappen
This was a quick and easy process from initial phone call and quote to technician install. Scott called ahead of time and arrived as scheduled. Very professional and knowledgeable about our new keypad entry. Plus a quick install on 4 doors. App setup guidance too. Highly recommend.

Scott came out to install new locks on two external doors on our house. He was very friendly and courteous and extremely knowledgeable about the locks we were having installed. He did a great job and the new hardware looks great on our doors. We highly recommend him.
Judith Alexander
These guys were great. Max worked with me on my car… and spent a lot of time. Ended up not being a key issue but a car issue but he still programmed my keys and wouldn’t charge me. Great service!
Pete Moon
Scott was awesome !Incredibly conscientious and adept.Good communication, lock fixed, and pocket NOT empty- who could ask for more?!

Scott C. was courteous, professional, efficient, and delightful. They were able to provide us with a same-day appointment and Scott called to let us know he was on his way, and arrived within the appointment’s allotted timeframe to rekey 4 locks for us. I’ve used American Lock & Key several times for our business to have locks re-keyed or keys made - and once when I locked myself out of the house - and have always had a good experience with their technicians and service. Highly recommend!
