If I could give a higher rating than this, I would. Scott came to my property to rekey a lock for me and he did so quickly and professionally. Not only did he answer all my questions clearly and concisely, he also held great conversation. Not just him though, the two people I spoke to on the phone during the scheduling process were also great, highly professional, and worked with me to make sure I was helped properly. 10/5 stars. I do recommend.
Aaron Spaulding
A most pleasant locksmith experience. Denise was extremely helpful on the phone, taking time and sharing information and suggestions. Wonderful customer service and I would trust this group for any lock concerns.

I had Scott from American Lock & Key come out to re-key 4 of my deadbolts to match my new keypad lock that I installed. He did an amazing job, was on time and worked quickly. He made sure all my doors closed and locked perfectly, even the one I had installed myself. Really nice guy, great service, I highly recommend.
Travis Knight
We had to carry out an eviction on a property which is never a good situation, however Scott Crocker has a lot of experience and was so professional that he made it easier on me while working with the sheriffs on site. Scott and American Lock and Key will be my first choice.
David Knickerbocker
Super courteous and professional. I was in a tough situation that they did not have the key for. They found who did and referred me to another. That’s professionalism and why you should try them.

Un equipo maravilloso, muy atentos y respetuosos, rápidos y eficientes. Fui por un servicio para reprogramar mi llave del carro, lo hicieron muy rápido. Recomendado y sin duda volveré.
Scott Crocker at American Lock and Key was so great. He was prompt and friendly. He really helped me with changing the locks on my new home. He went above and beyond by helping me reset some lock codes that the previous owner had set. From making the appointment to getting the service completed, the process with American Lock and Key was seamless. Thank you!
Morgan Carey
I was in desperate need of a competent locksmith and Scott Crocker at American Lock & Key did not disappoint! He immediately diagnosed the problem and executed quickly, also giving me a quick and easy lesson in how to program the code for my specific lock set. I would not hesitate to recommend them, in fact you need not go anywhere else. Their rates were quite reasonable as well. Thank you!
Christy Young
Great local business focused on solving customer issues. Our locksmith, Tyler, was friendly, punctual, helpful and a problem solver for some old locks that we needed rekeyed. We would highly recommend American Lock and Key!
Ryan Jarry
Scott was amazing! I locked myself in the basement the other day and after I got out I wasn’t sure how to work with the finnicky old lock I have to make sure it didn’t happen again. He gave me two pins to open the door knob so I can let myself in the house if that ever happens again.Scott was prompt, knowledgeable and just the loveliest guy! Thank you Scott!!
