I went in for a duplicate apartment key. It only cost me three dollars and thirty seconds. I’m going back to this place when I need to again. – Steven Lang

Came in here with a broken/worn-out front-door lock. They were able to re-build it to fit the existing key in no time. These guys really know what they do, and it’s not expensive either. – G.R. Reno, NV


Have been using their services for over 20 years, and they are always on time and have a very friendly staff. They are very experienced, and have always proven to be spot on. No other Locksmith can compete with them in my opinion. – Brenda

I called and Tina was at our door two hours later. She said, “Don’t replace your locks, cause I can fix them.” And fix them she did. She was quick, efficient, thorough. The doors work better than they have in the last decade. – Michael C. Reno, NV
