American Lock & Key
Based on 291 reviews
I can't say enough how great this group is! My car key broke off in the ignition on Tuesday. When I called, the technician who answered the phone was very empathetic and helpful! Barry diligently worked to retrieve the broken half of my key from the ignition and removed it after 15-20 mins and cut me two new keys. I thought that I would have to buy a new ignition switch, but that wasn't the case and for that, I am very grateful! Thank you for everything!

David G. is professional and considerate. My key was broken off in the ignition, David made it seems effortless to get it out and make a new key. He was very nice and considerate. I would recommend American Lock and Key for your business needs.

"Great service and fair pricing, excellent experience!"
Ronnie Jalloh
Atmosphere was amazing. I went to get a key replacement because I thought my key fob was done for but he was able to use my chip and recreate my key. I also bought a new key and it was even faster than the replacement. I was amazed at the fast and respectful service I received. A lot of smiles and laughs while still getting the job done. 10/10 Recommend

I’m not normally a reviewer, but David from American Lock and Key gets 6 out of 5 stars. A house key was stolen on a Saturday afternoon. He offered to rekey the house as soon as he finished a current job. He was timely, communicative, responsive, friendly, and efficient. The great weekend service was much appreciated.

Call them! These people are absolutely amazing, knowledgeable and professional. They were able to fix in 2 hours something that Hyundai could not in years. Their prices are reasonable and the service and quality of work they provide, far surpasses anyone's expectations.

We bought a place with an unusual, DIY-installed lock in the sliding glass door with only one key. Lowe’s and Ace didn’t have the blank, so we came to American. The friendly gentleman who helped us was initially stumped but took finding the blank as a challenge. He said there are 40,000 key types in North America, and they carried “several thousand” of the most common types. After looking through a thick book and on the computer for over 10 minutes, he finally found it: it was the blank to a 1962 Volvo/Jaguar! He then made 4 flawless keys in under 2 minutes. He said he bet they’d probably had that box for at least 30 years and probably had the only box in the state - I believe him! Great, friendly professional service - go see American for all of your lock and security needs!
