Came in right at open with a 30 year old key that was snapped and worn. They copied it for me and it worked!( it was a long shot) I was out of there in 10 minutes. Great work!!
John, David and Scott were all excellent in helping us through a stressful time when our deadbolt was broken by a worker accidentally. Very timely, knowledgeable and professional, thank you very much!

American Lock & Key is absolutely fantastic! I recently ordered duplicate keys from a Kia dealer. Because my car is an older model, they said I would have to order blanks and take them to get them cut once they arrived. They said their machine couldn't cut them on-site. I took the blanks to AL&K to have the keys cut. They cut my keys for $20 and gave me the test key for free! The blanks from Kia were $34.56 each. Had they been able to cut them on-site it would have cost me another fee. Thanks to AL&K for being honest, super cool, and awesome. You are the best!

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.
