I just moved into a new house, what should I do?

At the very least you should immediately have all your doors rekeyed because you don’t know who was given keys in the past by the former owner.  Every place that a key can go in should be rekeyed to fit a new key.  Also, get a spare key cut for emergencies.

I’m locked out of my car, can you help?

Yes, American Lock & Key has all the necessary tools and training to get you into your car safely.  Be careful not to get lured by the promise of $15 service call.  If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is.

Are you a licensed locksmith in Virginia?

Yes, American Lock & Key is licensed with the Department of Criminal Justice.  DCJS # is 11-3052.

Can you make car keys?

Yes! We can make you a car key, even if you have zero working car keys. If you need spare keys, we can make extra car keys, even high security chip keys, laser keys, transponder keys, remotes, and key FOBS.

Our Latest Locksmith Reviews

Based on 400 reviews
American Lock & Key is absolutely fantastic! I recently ordered duplicate keys from a Kia dealer. Because my car is an older model, they said I would have to order blanks and take them to get them cut once they arrived. They said their machine couldn't cut them on-site. I took the blanks to AL&K to have the keys cut. They cut my keys for $20 and gave me the test key for free! The blanks from Kia were $34.56 each. Had they been able to cut them on-site it would have cost me another fee. Thanks to AL&K for being honest, super cool, and awesome. You are the best!

American Lock & Key Company were my guardian angels today! I was extremely pleased from the minute I called Max and Andy to request help with a broken door deadbolt to when the friendly visiting service technician, Scott Crocker, successfully completed the job with confidence and ease. Scott answered all my questions thoroughly and made sure I knew how to operate the door correctly. Scott mentioned Max had told him we have to do something for this lady because they realized I was in an unsafe situation without my deadbolt. Originally, they were going to schedule me for tomorrow. However, I greatly appreciated their extra thoughtfulness to see me today. They helped to restore my faith that there are still good people in this world. I would highly recommend American Lock and Key company to anyone in need of their services. Out of five stars, they are definitely a five-star company.

The locksmith, Scott C., called ahead and arrived early within the anticipated time window. He immediately started to work removing a non-functioning door knob lock set, and diagnosed it’s problem, showing us the defective parts. We opted to replace the old door knob with a new one, which he installed in record time. He explained things as he worked, and was very patient in answering our questions. Scott was not only a clearly skilled locksmith, but he was also a good educator to us on locks in general, and was very easy to talk in answering our questions. Scott was a very neat worker throughout the job, and took extra care when he had to grind a small amount off the metal strike plate to make sure the metal dust fell outside the house, by placing his body in a position to block the dust. Scott was very proficient, friendly, polite, and I took special note when he entered our home and greeted me, that he removed his hat. That is almost unheard of these days. Scott is a true gentleman in addition to being an outstanding locksmith.
