Same day service. Rekeyed 2 deadbolts at my office in under 30 mins. Scott was professional, kind and helpful.
Kristi Fulcher
I am extremely pleased with the service that American Lock & Key provided today. I requested same-day service, and they were able to send a technician out this very same afternoon. The Technician Scott Crocker called before arriving, was extremely friendly and efficient, and did an absolutely outstanding job! I can’t say enough about how great my experience was today with American Lock & Key, and specifically with technician Scott Crocker.
Mark G
Highly experienced and knowledgeable staff. I brought in my worn down car key and they were able to remake a new one to factory based off of my terrible key. I have been here several times for things other locksmiths said they couldn't do and it was no problem for them. I would call ahead to make sure they have everything in stock just to be on the safe side though

I didn't have any luck finding someone who could help duplicate my key until I went to American Lock & Key. Thank you!

John was amazing. Funny & nice! He arrived in 20 mins to a huge parking garage at vcu & had me back in my car in under 5 minutes. You are appreciated !!!! Thank you 🙂
Brianna Stewart
I went in today to have an extra FOB key made because I "thought" my extra key wouldn't work for the ignition. Andy educated me about my "valet key," and assured me that it would be appropriate for my extra key needs. He was right. I appreciate the fact that he didn't try to "sell" me something that I really didn't need. He was very nice and knowledgeable, and for all the above reasons, I'll return to American Lock and Key for ANY future needs
Jane Mendez-Picon
Scott arrived promptly, and was very candid about what would and would not work on my property. He also shared quite a bit of helpful information pertaining to upkeep of the locks. Would definitely use again for anything else in the future.
Adrienne Courtney
Amazing experience! Only took 30 minutes overall and John is hilarious and knows what he’s doing! Great employee and great business, would definitely recommend.
