Our Latest Locksmith Reviews

Based on 491 reviews
Fast, pleasant service. Had to get a new key for my wrangler and the dealer required me to make an appointment. I didn't want to wait a week. I was in and out in less than 15 minutes. Definitely recommend.Update (Feb 2024)…Recommended to my mom who needed help with her front door locks. Tyler came out and figured out that her locks only needed cleaning rather than replacing. He showed my mom how to change the batteries, set her up with extra keys and overall did an excellent job working with an elderly person. Still highly recommend this business.
Dianne Barba
Great experience from American Lock & Key from the initial call to the completed work by Tyler. Search no further for locksmith service.

Yesterday was the second time I had to call a locksmith for one of our doors at Catalyst Fit. I used this company both times. Once again they showed up within 20 minutes and had the lock fixed in less than 20 minutes. Wonderful service. My key worked better today than it has for the past 7 years.

Excellent customer service from the jump. My service provider Kyle was friendly and knowledgeable. I was referred to American Lock & Key by my cousin and I'd refer them to my family and friends.

Mike replaced eight locks in my 200 year old fourplex in Churchill. All tenants were happy and I only have to carry one master key now. Such a great upgrade, he has made my work so much easier.
Grant Thompson
American re-keyed and added additional deadbolts to all my exterior doors at my home. I'm absolutely thrilled with their work. Locksmith Tyler was prompt, knowledgeable, and friendly. His work was perfect and the areas were spotless clean when he was done. All at a very fair price. I completely recommend American Lock and Key.
