Super easy convenient and professional place
Karlyn Maggi
Every experience I’ve had here a great -rekeying locks, making keys. Folks are very knowledgeable and helpful. Most recently they repaired a key fob for me that would have cost hundreds to replace.
Paul Van De Putte
Scott showed up on time and did great work above and beyond! Highly recommend!!
Mike Nelligan
Couldn’t have had a better experience with John. He was fast, efficient, and very kind. (Also great sense of humor ahah) I called and he asked a few questions and was there in 20 minutes. Not only that but he was able to get me the code on the outside of my car that no one knew when I bought it. I would 10/10 recommend them for your locksmith services.
Lauren Winstead

Great experience with American Lock & Key! John is an excellent technician who saved the day after l locked my keys in the trunk of my car! He is professional, responsive, patient, and knowledgeable. I highly recommend John and American Lock & Key!!!
The service was excellent
Ness Mccain
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 RecommendUPDATE! one of my keys no longer work.. it was my predominant key but it doesn’t connect to my car anymore so I’m guessing the battery went dead maybe… I’m not sure but it was very inconvenient… Thank God for spare keys!

My experience with American Lock & Key was great. Scott, the technician, was superb. Would call upon them again if needed.
Guillermo Cobarte
My daughters car was stolen and when it was finally recovered we needed a new key made as soon as possible. American lock and key responded immediately and met us at the car. The service tech was so friendly and nice. The two keys were made immediately. He was a key magician for sure. I would highly recommend them. Their outstanding customer service and years of experience made this stressful situation a total breeze.
