A key smith came out to my house and made 3 keys for my semi truck in about 30 minutes!!! Fantastic !!

Honest locksmiths with great prices.
Brian Strauch
Don't go anywhere else and waste your time. After trying to get a key cut at several locksmiths, and being told they couldn't cut it, I took it to American Lock and Key. In and out in 10 minutes with my two new keys. Will absolutely use them again!
Mike LaBarre
Technician Scott Crocker did an awesome job. On time and went above and beyond in helping with our multiple home lock needs. Will definitely recommend to anyone seeking locksmith services.
This place replaced my car key and it works like a charm. For that, they get high marks.However, I stood around in the lobby for about 15 minutes before being helped. Maybe they should implement some sort of appointment scheduling, because that was rather inconvenient. Also, gotta wonder about charging $250 to replace my key. It took them all of about 10 minutes to program a replacement fob and cut the new key for me.Solid experience overall beyond those two annoyances.
