We needed a more secure lock on our back door. The installation went smoothly, and the technician was courteous, knowledgeable, and thorough. I would highly recommend them to anyone!
Matt Gabriel
I am extremely pleased with the service at American Lock & Key. We had lost our extra car fob and attempted to get a replacement and were either quoted an outrageous amount or told were needed to get codes from DMV which was impossible(and not needed). The guys here were knowledgeable and were able to give us a replacement and program it in less than a half an hour at a fraction of the previously quoted cost!!

This place was great. I brought a challenging situation and they provided a solution. The price was awesome, but more so the tenacity and determination to assist me left a great impression. I would recommend this business to anyone. I was very pleased.

We contacted American Lock & Key and the process was super simple! Sam Wilson helped me choose the right set up for our situation and was able to have a technician out the very next day! David was super knowledgeable, friendly, and walked me through the whole process to make sure I didn't have any questions before he left! Highly recommend this company!
