This guy is a crook and a rip off. Every bad thing you have read about this creep here on Yelp is true and then some.

His car has "Psalm 91" on the back, but he is a wolf in sheep's clothing. One day he will reap what he sowed.

But before that happens, do not do business with this crook. You have been warned.

Showed up late, added random charges and took forever. I wish I had asked him to leave. Everything was an up charge or an attempt to up sell. I even got a quote before he came and he charged about double the quote.

If I could give 0 stars I would terrible business.. My key was stuck in the ignition and the only the he was able to do was take it out but couldn't make a a replacement and charged $500 for this! He is a rip off and very rude and unhelpful. Defiantly will not be referring his business to anyone!

This was a terrible experience. In the end I got nothing for my money except anger and frustration. Bait and switch. I bought a service on Angie's list and it took them 5 months to set a date. They didn't return my calls. Finally, when we set a date, John, a CROOK, told me the job would cost an additional $495 to $795. But the workman said he could do it in the 2 hours. It's just that he goofed around, talked to his boss on the phone, hadn't even started after 45 minutes. TERRIBLE experience.

Make sure to let your customers know the cost up front. Ever hear of good customer service? Bought a $65 livingsocial deal and was an additional $184 for ONE LOCK. Oh but the work was done before he gave us total.

I'm sorry that I didn't read the other reviews before purchasing the $79 for one hour of maintenance deal from Angie's list.  I had the same experience with being charged for work that I did not agree to, but because it was done, I did pay.  However, I do feel that I was duped and when I told John (the Magnolia person who did the work) that I would be posting negative reviews, he told me that I should have asked him how much it was going to cost.  In other words, the client needs to ask for the estimate.  I fell into the trap.  Beware of this company and their unprofessional business practices.

Like many other suckers I purchased a deal from Angie's list which they refused to honor and then offered to do the same work for 3 times the price. John who I spoke to is quite simply a moron. He couldn't multiple 3 x 100 and then proceeded to tell me what fine work they do. He was obnoxious, unapologetic and rude. I'd agree to kicj in the 98 bucks if he'd agree to go back to first grade and learn manners and math. What a bunch of fleecers!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Give your money to an honest company not these losers

This guy is a yahoo.

Like others we purchased a deal off of Angies List to fix an old front door that squeeked, and was difficult to close.

Right off the bat he started noting things that were not covered.

He either no-showed, cancelled or was consistently late for the appointments.  It took several attempts to get him here with necessary supplies.

The door is now in WORSE shape than it was before, requiring a hard slam for the lock to engage.

He charged us for extra time, as his 'patch' took longer than anticipated.  We only paid because we had had it with him, and needed to get back to work - he arrived at 10:30 for his appointment between 8-9.

His parting words were, "And you are going to give me a good review on Angies List, right?"

Quite the sitcom...

You have been warned!

Avoid, avoid, avoid. Jack up the price and give you "discount". Agreed on the price on the check but showed up and charged on another price on invoice. When I went back and asked about the unexpected invoice, he said "I deleted my text","Why do you try to nickel and dime me". I showed him all the text history and he still wouldn't admit. If you want to work with some honest people, this is not where you go. AVOID.

Totally unprofessional and a cheat. We bought  a deal from Angie's list which included all costs and AFTER the work is done he asked for TRIP cost that is not even mentioned anywhere upfront or in an of the email/phone conversations with this company.

Would not recommend them to anybody at all !

John is really unprofessional and seems like a cheat. I bought a deal off of Angie's List for door maintenance and he started excluding services (like lock replacement) which were clearly included in the Angie's list deal description.

He then proceeded to tell me he is particular about which customers he chooses (haha). It is clear he wants to find customers with a lot of extra work so he can charge extra beyond the deal. I'm glad I sought a refund from Angie's list.

I'm glad there are other yelp reviews that describe John's unethical behavior.

Purchased Deal from Angies List.  Troy, John's brother and partner, also provides handyman service. Scheduled appointment through John. Troy called Christmas eve day and wanted to review what work I wanted done. Very minor jobs. I am 71, physically challenged and live alone. Troy's attitude was unbelievably rude. He said there is a $79 trip charge on top of fees for work.  Total bait and switch. Then I read the reviews on Angies List. BAD! Many, many bad reviews. Some also mention the trip charge. Lots problems with Troy's work as well. I am cancelling the deal through Angies list and letting them know of the problem with these guys.

John showed up on time, was pleasant and did the job as promised at the agreed upon price. He noticed that one of my doors needed some extra bracing and did it without asking for extra compensation, went above and beyond. Like I do with my clients, under promise and over deliver.

I highly recommend this company, they gave me the most competitive quote. Great service and workmanship! Couldn't ask for anything better.

I spoke by phone to the locksmith, and scheduled an appointment five days later. In that conversation, I agreed to purchase a lock for around $80. I'd removed all but the center portion of the lock myself. The locksmith came, checked the lock, and in 15 minutes, removed the center portion with his tools. He then installed the new deadbolt, which took no more than about 10 minutes.

My charges were:
$69 to come to the house (scheduled, not an emergency)
$95 "lockout malfunction" (more expensive than a typical lockout, he said)
$65 to remove and replace the lock
$78 for the deadbolt
$307 TOTAL

Watching him work, it's unclear how "lockout malfunction" and "removing the lock" were different, especially since I'd removed most of the lock before he arrived. In any case, as he worked, he should have let me know what I'd be charged for as he worked.

I will never do business with this company again.

I'm posting this review as many places as I can associated with all the phone numbers I'm discovering to be associated with this business.  

If you call a number for a locksmith and get an automated message in a woman's voice that starts "Thank you for calling The Locksmith.."  HANG UP!!  I encountered this dispatching service at about 7 different phone numbers: 510-246-8147, 510-537-4000, 510-731-6587, 510-731-6551, 510-731-6602, 510-731-6575 + others.  

I was locked out of my house and calling around for help.  $29 for the house call and $35 for the job is what the dispatcher quoted me more than once.  I was told that the locksmith would arrive in 25 minutes.  45 minutes later he arrives and tells me that the cost will be $135!  I firmly asked him to leave.  He agreed to do it for the quoted price IF he didn't have to drill it.  He attempted to pick it for about 20 seconds and announced that it would have to be drilled.  Now the job would again cost me $135 and I would have to replace the lockset.  I know nothing about lock sets.  He said he was very familiar with this lockset (and that's why he knew he wouldn't be able to pick it) and told me a replacement would cost about $35.  He was wrong.  The least expensive replacement I could find anywhere was $155.  

I chose to buy a cheap lockset and switch it out with the backdoor.  So the backdoor lockset needed to be re-keyed without a key.  That meant picking it first.  I took it down to the local hardware store (Pete's in Castro Valley) and the guy cutting keys there was able to pick it!! It took him a couple of minutes, but he did it.  Without a drill!!  This was the final straw.  I feel so completely had by The Locksmith.  

Yes, I made a huge, stupid, mistake by locking myself out of my house (and not having a hidden key, which you bet your butt I have now!).  But I was completely taken advantage of.

Please do not use this service. This is a mobile locksmith service that is not based in your community. They report that their business is located in Pittsburgh. I called them at a Mill Valley number where they reportedly had an office. They do not have na office in Hayward, Pittsburgh, Mill Valley or anywhere else. They may or may not employ real locksmith. My experience has been that they subcontract with local locksmiths and are a clearinghouse for phone calls.

That might be fine if they provided a real service. I called "Speedy Lock and Key Mobile Locksmith" to help me enter my home that I had locked myself out of. The person they sent was incompetent. Without informing me of the risks they drilled through my entire door and broke a mortise lock mechanism. They were never able to get into the house but they were able to irreparably damage the locking mechanism such that replacement will cost $800-$1000.

I have spent five days trying to get a response from their customer service. They keep telling me someone will call back and that they are forwarding it to their technician supervisor. They have told me that they are not responsible for the workmanship of the locksmiths they contract with. They have hung up on me. DO NOT USE THIS SERVICE. Look around at surrounding Bay Area communities and type in Speedy or Elite Mobile Locksmith and you will start to see 1 star reviews. This is a scam at best.

I will be taking them to court.

NO STARS! Currently in the process of a lawsuit as we speak. This place is THEEEE WORST  SERVICE IN THE BAY AREA! Called them and they sent a guy over to my place. First he couldn't get the broken key out so he told me he had no choice but to take my ignition housing off. I said will that cost me more? ( I already knew the answer to that as I felt a hustle coming on). He said yes, $300. I didn't have a choice so agreed. After he took of my housing he couldn't find a way to put it back on. Then he tells me, my spare key doesn't work. I said no way, my spare key is the same. He still argued and gave me an attitude " I know what I'm doing. I've been doing this for a long time. Your spare key doesn't work. It wont turn your ignition on " I Said, uh maybe you need to put my ignition housing back on and then turn the steering then it should work. He still didn't agree. After he tried putting it back on and turn the steer, it worked. He felt stupid afterwards. Then he quickly ask, " Ok $300. Want a reciept? " I said yes. I gave him the money, he got in his car and drove off. NO Receipt. But here's where @#$!( hits the fan. He left and the housing from my steering is loose! This means when I try and turn my signal the entire housing behind the steering moves too! I called his work up and they said they send him back to repair it. After hunting him down, 4 days later he shows up..Still can't repair it and tells me I need to take my car to the dealership to have them repair it! DUDE WHAT? You broke my car and now I have to pay extra?? You gotta be @#$ me! He just drove off! I called his manager at work and told him I'm going to sue your place if you don't repair my car. The manager said ok I'll take care of it...days past, weeks past and nothing. What kinda manager allows his employees to make this kinda of mistake AND ignore his customer??? If any of you guys get a guy with a russian accent, GOOD LUCK!! HEs the one who broke my car! I can't wait to take them to court!!!

Robert Bradley, the owner of Locksmith Central is a complete crook! He quoted my wife $250. to make a key for our vehicle. This job will take a competent locksmith about 1/2 hour. It took this guy 2-1/2 hours and then he charged my wife an additional $250. that was not agreed to. We took him to court and got a judgment against him for the $250 plus court fees. Some of the other Yelp reviews indicate that he has a pattern of taking advantage of women. He is currently under investigation by several agencies.
The guy gets a zero star for no credibility, no ethics and no professionalism.
Its not about the money people, its about principal and ethics.

Gabe was on time and recommended what locks we should get for our new home. He told us the prices upfront and took about 15 minutes to change out the locks and program the garage door opener. He was very knowledgeable and I would definitely call him again for any kind of work I need.

Gabriel is great. Not only did he hulk up our doors to make them tamper proof, but he did it quickly and neatly too. He even threw in 2 extra keys free of charge as a new year gift. And the guy works on New Year's Day too! Highly recommend!

We recently moved to Walnut Creek and were in search for a reliable locksmith who could recommend the right locks to keep our house safe and secure. We are so happy to have Gabriel come over and change the front door locks to our house. Excellent customer service! Gabe took the time to explain all possible options to us and let us know how each lock-type functions in terms of safety. He came fully prepared - well stocked with all the required equipment and was practically done in an hour's time. Super fast and efficient in his work style.  Pricing is very affordable. Would only use him in the future for a lock job.

Definitely recommend Gabe for an easy no-hassle professional job, done politely. 5 stars!!!

Really great. Same day appointment, friendly, quick, lots of good advice about locks and doors. No small talk, very direct and honest.

A call came in on his phone while he was talking to me and he didn't take it so he could continue responding to my questions-- even though i told him i didn't mind. Great ettiquite, would definitely call this dude if you need anything related to locks and deadbolts.

Gabriel's the man.  I had him come out to our warehouse to assess our door security and he quickly helped us evaluate our options and come up with a good plan.  We were literally done in a day- New handles, deadbolts, security keys.  He came fully stocked.  He'll definitely be our guy going forward.

Gabe is very professional! I really recommend him. We decided to change our front door lock to a more secure one; he came next day after I call and explained me the options, he was on time, very quick and did a great job. I'll be using him for any future issue with my locks! Thank you Gabe!

He is an expert and very knowledgeable.  He's quick and I'm extremely pleased with the work he did for me.  I will recommend him to friends for sure!  He's as good as it gets - no doubt about that and I will be a repeat customer!

I called to schedule an appointment with Gabriel and was surprised to get a same day appointment! I had shopped around on YELP based on reviews and estimates. I chose Gabriel because he didn't give me a price because of where I lived, yes, some locksmiths actually charge based on the city where you lived even though they are based out of the same city I lived, I also liked his reviews and his price was extremely fair. He gave me a 2 hour window but phoned me an hour before that time and said he could be here earlier if that was okay. He changed my lock quickly and was extremely friendly. I recommend Gabriel to anyone looking for a reliable locksmith.

What an amazing young man. He's prices are reasonable and he's service is quick and always a fix. So on time, very professional.
Unfortunately I keep calling him out for a same reason with my mailbox but due to our poor mailbox master door my mailbox door keeps moving so he comes out for a lock adjustment.
Super nice guy! Def recommend him!

This guy is an absolute pro. I called him because I needed three new door locks for my house. He walked me through options on the phone and after I sent him pictures of the locks we, he told me to save money by buying the locks direct from Home Depot and he recommended the exact locks to purchase.  He only charged me for the labor. Definitely use Gabriel if you need a good quality, and Honest  locksmith

I called Gabe at 8PM on a weeknight to discuss a problem with my rear patio door not locking.  Gabe told me over the phone how stupid I was (no, he didn't really say that), but gently told me how the door is supposed to lock.  I felt pretty dumb, but was happy that he was able to help me over the phone.  I will definitely hire Gabe if I ever need some locksmithing done!

After reading Gabe's Mobile Locksmith's YELP reviews, I was sold. Gabe came to our home promptly, was polite, smart, personable, and honest. He installed high security locks in our home while explaining the product. He doesn't oversell his products and charges a fair price. Everything he needs is in his van. I will certainly refer his services to my family and friends. No need to look for another locksmith; Gabe is your man!

Gabe was quick to respond and was quick to arrive on a holiday weekend.  Great communication via phone and text.  Standard cost for lock change.

My ignition on my work van failed and I couldent go to work. After calling Young's I had an appointment scheduled for 2 hours later. He showed up on time, gave me a few options on what he could do to repair it and quoted me a price as soon as he was done inspecting the lock. Reasonably priced, friendly and quick. I had a new key and was on the road in about an hour. Very happy, 5 stars!

Young was incredibly helpful! I had to write this review because he was very professional and caring. I interuppted his lunch and his overall attitude was impecable. He even shared his lunch with me and offered me a bottled water while I waited for him to copy my keys. He is not near my area but I will certainly return to him for future business because he is just that great

Thanks to previous reviewers for your comments about Mr. Young.  I completely agree with the 5-star rating. I needed to rekey 8 locks on a house and only had 1 day to get it done.  I scheduled Mr. Young earlier in the week, he showed up promptly and completed the rekeying and key copies in a little more than an hour.  Made my day easier since I was under time constraints.  Thanks for your professionalism, reasonable pricing, and excellent service.

I had to re key a house I purchased and I found Young through a personal referral and was glad to see his Yelp reviews were great too.
I called one guy before him and he wanted to charge me a lot so when I called young and got a quote for half of what the other person stated I was happy.

Young also said if he looked at the locks and needed to do more work and we didn't like the price we didn't have to use him he would be okay with that.

He was able to provide service the same day that I called. He showed up on time.
He was courteous and quick took about 1.5 hours for 8 locks!  

Thanks Young!

Twice now I've used Young's for my locksmithing needs.  The first visit was to change the locks on my newly purchased home, the second visit was to tuneup the front door lock that Mr. Young had previously warned me was in danger of failing (it eventually did).   Efficient, friendly, professional, knowledgeable service and very, very reasonably priced.  I would recommend him to friends without hesitation and in fact already have!

Within 30 minutes of me calling, Young was at my house.  Young took care of business and was on his way to the next job in no time.  Very polite and professional.  I would recommend him to anyone that needs a locksmith!

Fantastic service! We just moved into our home and wanted to have the locks changed, and they came the same day, changed all of our locks, and made all the copies of keys we needed. Quick and efficient service!! Definitely recommend

Did a great job converting my Gun safe Digital Combination to an analog old-school combo lock.  Price was very reasonable and done in an hour.  Great job - and we are no longer worried about having a lock-out on the safe and it's cheapo mechanism.  Great upgrade and looks great too.

Ben at BA Locksmith offers amazing and affordable service!! Very timely and professional, he re-keyed our whole home in less than an hour and even corrected a locking mechanism which was installed improperly. Simply put he is efficient and trustworthy! He has earned a customer for life. The Valley has earned a good one!

Best locksmith in the Bay Area as far as I'm concerned. I called Ben to rey key an entire complex. He was prompt, efficient and completed the job by the time he said. BA locksmith is our current go to locksmith for any issues.

I am a new business owner in Meridian.  I wasn't given the interior keys for the offices inside my wellness center and needed all of the locks to be rekeyed.  Ben came out within 30 minutes of my phone call...he probably would had come out even SOONER if I didn't have to have the extra time, myself, to get to the building with my baby.  

Ben was professional, amicable, affordable and efficient.  He offered me many different options and explained the pros and cons of each option.  He was able to key 5 doors, label ALL the keys per room and give me extra keys for my tenants in less than 2 hrs.  He did everything on-site.  He even labelled each key and put them on a master key ring for me so I wouldn't confuse the keys.  He even offered me advice on security and told me how to get a master key to the local fire department in case there was an emergency at the office and they needed to get in without breaking a window.  

I will most definitely refer Ben and the BA Locksmith.  I've now found my go-to locksmith -- don't need to use anyone else.  Thanks, Ben! Waleli Wellness thanks you!

Ben was awesome! After calling at least 5 other locksmiths who couldn't respond in time, I finally called BA Locksmith, and Ben came promptly and saved the day. In addition, he gave us some great insights and tips into home security. We will definitely call him back to rekey our locks after we remodel to make our home a tougher nut to crack. Thank you, Ben!

Very professional, knowledgeable and expedient locksmith.  I was speaking with a customer service associate at Home Depot regarding a door latch that was slightly shy of the length it needed to be, and too long if extended.  I was asking if there were alternative sizes, and if not, if he could recommend a solution.  Unfortunately, he wasn't able to offer any additional knowledge outside of what I had already known.  Ben happened to overhear the conversation and offered a couple of options to try.  In addition, he gave me his number and said if the options didn't work or if I had any questions, to give him a call and he would be happy to help.  Needless to say, the following morning, bright and early, I reached out to Ben and asked for his expertise.  He was at my home within 2 hours of my call.  Not only did he install the original locking door knob I was having challenges with, but he also replaced my front door dead bolt, door fixture,  and made a 3rd key for the entry door on the spot!  I have several doors that still need upgrading and I will definitely seek his services again.  If your looking for the real deal, I highly recommend BA Locksmith.

Once again, B&B guys came to my rescue and saved the day.  I urgently needed a new car key cut after misplacing it somewhere and thankgoodness to Ed and Alex, I'm all set again.  Easy communication, highly skilled technicians, flexible hours and reasonable price.  These guys are top notch!

The locksmith came out to make keys for my car and was done within 20 minutes! Very excellent service and  very reasonable ! It beats going to the dealership and paying $300 or more for one key!

Alex is good at what he does, and he is a kind person.
He came out to help me and ended up not charging for a simple fix. He is the type of honest person you want working on home or car. He is a great neighbor. Thank you Alex!!!!!

Had an incident on Saturday afternoon and had to get the front door re-keyed.  Manny was able to come within 10 minutes and finish it up within 30 minutes.  He was friendly and efficient!  He even greased our lock so that it would turn easily. Would highly recommend.

Alex is fantastic!! He chatted with me the whole time he was working - explaining the process, showing me the equipment, and telling me about other keys he's worked on, etc. He had my new key all ready to go in no time at all, at a price that was much more reasonable than any of the other locksmiths I had called.
Overall: outstanding customer service - would highly recommend!!

This is a reliable and fast service. I have checked Locksmith services around the Bay Area and it turned out B&B Locksmith the best option. My remote car key​ Toyota (transponder) was made in less than 30 minutes. I highly recommend his service to one else who needs a key. His truck was packed with all of the tools and it was like a working office.

I left my keys in the apartment taking out the garbage when I got home. I called six locksmiths each saying they were booked until the next day and each giving me someone else to try calling.
I finally looked up someone in yelp called B & B. They immediately had someone ready to call me back and almost as soon as I hung up the phone with their dispatch, Manuel one of their locksmiths called and said he would be at my complex in several minutes! I was shocked to see him pull up as I just called the company a few minutes ago. The service was very professional and Manuel provided the best customer service I have had in a long time from any company.
I don't think my case is unique as everything was professional moving like clockwork and I believe they have to always be this good to provide this service.
I will definitely use this company again and recommend you try them.

This review is long overdue. Needed a locksmith over the weekend last July. Locked myself outside of a bedroom door in the house; needed to get in pronto because I needed items that were inside for an event. B&B responded promptly and Manny came over in minutes. He was courteous,  respectful, and personable. Manny even showed us the issues with the door knob and lock, and offered some helpful suggestions. Thanks for saving us that day, Manny and B&B!
Tommy P.

Manny was great! Very efficient and knowledgeable and was able to answer a lot of my dumb questions about locks and security. Everyone at B&B is very communicative, punctual, and professional. It also helps that they're much cheaper than the other locksmiths in the Bay Area.  I will DEFINITELY be using them again!

Had a secondary lock installed on our front-door based on Alex's recommendation.  I was very pleased with the service and quality of workmanship.  Alex arrived within the time window and completed the installation in the time he thought it would take.  He was very courteous and left the area spotless.  Very highly recommended if you want to get your job done right the first time and at a fair price.

Alex met me at auto return so I could retrieve my car. It had been stolen last week and the police found it, but my keys went missing the same week. He worked as fast as he could and made me two keys and deleted the information from the old key in the car's computer so it couldn't be used to steal it again. He was fast, nice and patient. Only $213 for all the extra help! Other locksmiths quoted me $225 for just one key, plus extra if it was after five pm!

We needed to have the house rekeyed and a new car key cut. Alex was very responsive (using the Yelp quote system) and was able to take care of business on a Sunday afternoon.

He was very professional and explained all the steps in the process, especially resetting the chip for the car key.

I'd happily work with Alex again.

Alex Berger is "the" lock guy!  We needed a new mortise lock installed where there was before a single barrel lock.  We also needed new hinges put on the door.  Two other highly rated locksmiths either couldn't deliver on the mortise or on the hinges.

B&B said no problem, gave us a quote and we arranged a time.  Because removal of the old hinges posed a problem, the job did take longer than we initially thought.  But, at least it was done all in the same day.  Prices were comparable with other quotes, Alex had all the right, special tools for the job, he was very pleasant to work with, and even told us he does security camera work as well.

You can't go wrong; highly recommended.

Fabulous service!
I'm handling the rental of my elderly mother's house and needed to have the locks rekeyed. I called this morning and we met at the house two hours later. Manny arrived promptly, rekeyed the locks, made copies and even gave us a 5% discount because I found the business on Yelp. Manny was friendly, efficient and informative, explaining how to maintain the quality of the lock in a foggy, damp and windy neighborhood. He was terrific!
While working with me he got a call from Alex, his boss. The company had been called by the Fire Department to help an elderly man who had been locked out of his house; the Fire Department called B & B. I thought to myself that if the Fire Department is calling this business, that must be another good recommendation!
Whenever I need any locksmith help, B & B is my go-to-business!

I was referred to Alex with B & B from a trusted friend and he did not disappoint! I lost the key to my '09 Kia to which Alex came to the rescue. He was quick in responding, prompt in arriving and clear with what he needed to do to get me back on the road. His roughly 30 minute visit saved me a world of trouble and was very reasonably priced - he saved me at least $100 if I had gone elsewhere. Hopefully I will hold on to my key this time but if I don't, Alex is a super reliable resource to call on. Fantastic service!

We had Manny came in to rekey our front door. Manny came in on time (he even called 30 mins before to confirm). He was very knowledgeable and patient. The whole thing took less than 20 mins. I also used the Yelp $25 for $35 deal!

Fantastic experience with Manny, He came out here to deal with my mailbox lock. He tired to save me some money by picking the lock before drilling and replacing the unit. Very knowledgeable , shared great info with me regarding locks and keys. Overall I would go back to these guys if im in need of any future lock and key needs. thank you Manny!

I needed a lock re-keyed. Earl came out even tho it wasn't during his business hours. He arrived quickly and got the job done and took the time for a short chat and looked around and gave me some safety tips concerning  sliding glass doors.
Excellent service and he left me feeling cared for.

I've used this service twice now and have been delighted. Earl worked with me and he is the best!  The first time was for a major door refinishing, and there was a slight problem - not caused by Earl, but he had to help straighten it out - and he was great about adjusting things to make my door perfect. I decided to ask him to install another, complex security lock, and he did an equally fine job. He scheduled site visit times that were convenient for me, showed up on time, did a super and quick job, left the job better than he found it - even texted to follow up. Couldn't ask for more.

The lock of my entrance door broke. Called several locksmiths. All of them wanted to charge $60-80 for the parts. Only Earl said the parts are under warranty and are free.  He spent about 30 minutes on the phone with me to find what he needed to order. Once he received the parts, he scheduled a convenient appointment with me. He showed up on time and fixed the lock skillfully. I trust and recommend Earl for any lock/key job.

Earl from Transbay Locksmiths changed the locks for us in Livermore today as we're getting ready to rent the house. He arrived early and completed the rekeying for us very efficiently.

Earl is the man!!! If you need a professional locksmith who is experienced, fast, friendly, and NOT out to rip you off, then this is the locksmith to call. I've never needed a locksmith for anything before, so locks, keys, choosing a new door lock, etc, is all new to me. I literally don't have a clue what I'm doing. Unfortunately, there are a lot of people out there who will see someone like me (who knows nothing about locks) and rip me off. They would tell me I need a new flux capacitor and that my ball bearings need a new frappy dappus and I would probably go, "Okay, I guess if that's what you think it needs". How am I supposed to know? BUT.....here is where Earl is awesome!!! He easily could have taken me for more money. He could have taken advantage of my lack of knowledge on door locks. BUT HE DID NOT! Instead, he asked me to text him some pictures of my front door lock so that he could see what I have. What I learned from him is that my front door lock is perfectly fine. I did not need to replace the whole unit, I just needed to have it re-keyed. That saved me a few hundred dollars!!  

Earl arrived on-time as promised, and he charged the fee he promised (which was very reasonable). A few minutes after he arrived, he was done! I couldn't believe it. He worked FAST, but everything was done very well. He gave me the new keys and had me try them on the three new locks to make sure everything worked well----and it did!

I highly recommend Earl for any locksmith need you may have. Two thumbs up!

We had our locks replaced by Earl with Transbay Locksmiths and are extremely happy with our new locks.  He is very professional and did a very clean job.  His expertise and thoroughness was greatly appreciated. He was a pleasure to deal with and I will definitely recommend him to all of my family and friends with their security needs.

I was referred to Earl at Transbay Locksmith from a friend. What a great referal. My lock to my business has been hard to open for awhile. I thought I was going to have to change the lock and have to make new keys for everyone. What a surprise when Earl checked it and told me he could fix it. I was prepared to spend a bunch of money. It now locks and unlocks like butter. Wow! The cost was so reasonable. I was amazed. Thanks Transbay Locksmith for an honest job. You are now MY locksmith of choice.

The first time I called a locksmith for a job was due to a burglary at my Mother-in-Law's home.  It was an unnerving time and as soon as the police report was given, I was lucky enough to get in touch with Earl Woodson.  Earl quickly responded to my call for help.  Within a very short time, he was at the house with locks, deadbolt and new keys in hand.  What a relief.  

Because of the quick response time and excellent work ethics, the second time I needed a locksmith, I again called Earl.  He listened as I told him what I needed and made several valid suggestions that would make my everyday chores much easier - and they have.  He was right on the money.

I have called Earl three times with lock/key problems and each time he responded quickly.  Twice he made suggestions that have been such a time saving.  Earl is prompt, courteous, and he listens to what your needs are.  His suggestions are valid and when he says it will save you time doing a job a certain way, well, I'm glad I listened.   Thank you Earl.  It's been great doing business with you.  Earl/Transbay Locksmiths is my locksmith of choice!!!!!

I lost my keys and locked out of my house, called Transbay Locksmith and spoke to Earl.  He was able to respond quickly to get me back into my house and while he was there had him Re-Key the whole house.  He was very professional and reasonably priced.  Thank You for saving the day Earl and will definitely use you again if needed!!

I had just put my groceries in my trunk and I put my purse in first for safety and shut the trunk with my keys in my purse.  Thank God I had my phone in my jacket. I called this one because it says they have a fast response. I have milk in my car.  This guy was there in 12 minutes and had my car open in less then 5 minutes.  I was on the road in less than 20 minutes. I highly recommend this locksmith.  I didn't even have to wait long in the cold!  Thanks Roy!

Great service, quick, honest and reliable. Oh and friendly! This is a legitimate locksmith he told me the cost over the phone and stuck to that price. Helped remove a 'Club' that was on my steering wheel as if lost the key. He had to cut it off but that's what every locksmith was going to do. The difference is that he is the person who answered the phone and showed up.

We recently needed to have our locks keyed. Every door had a different lock and key. Some of them we didn't even have keys for. So we decided it was time to make it easy to get in and out of our home. I did a search for locksmiths and Friendly came up on top. I gave a phone call and Roy set up an appointment for Sunday! He called to confirm and arrived on time. He made short work of the job and everything works great. If you're in need of a good locksmith, make sure you look here first.

Roy was great!  I had to re-key 3 locks at my condo.  Roy was punctual to the appointment, very skilled at what he was doing, finished the job very quickly at a very fair price.  Most of all, he put me at ease during the whole process. I highly recommend his services and I will continue to turn to him when I need lock service.  He also takes credit/debit cards for quick  and convenient payment.

We recently were in search of changing the locks at our dental practice. I called Friendly Locksmith after finding him on Yelp. His reviews were spot on.

We highly recommend him. Thanks Roy!

Roy is great! I've had him out to my house on 2 separate occasions. We recently bought our home and needed the locks re-keyed. He was available same day and made quick work of all 6 locks we needed changed. Price was fair and he even takes credit cards!

Second time he came out was to move a lock from an old door to a new one and install a new deadbolt. Also same-day service! Will definitely work with him again!

Today my 2 year old showed me his new trick of unlocking the deadbolt on the front door and walking out to the patio.  I quickly searched the yelp reviews for a locksmith.  I contacted Roy at noon and he was at my home just a couple short hours later to install a new deadbolt on my front door that was high and out of reach of my toddler.

Roy was on time for the appointment.  He stuck to his estimate and he did a great job.  The lock works perfectly and is out of reach for my toddler.  I will definitely use his services again when I need a locksmith.

My first time calling Friendly Locksmith and talked to Roy. He showed up timely to my house and able to identify the possible problem promptly when I requested a deadbolt replacement of my front door. I followed his suggestion and have my door lock replaced within the time frame as he told me. Roy is not just friendly and he is very experience in assisting my lock change. I surely want to give him a 5 plus stars for his job well done.

Although he was booked for the rest of the day, he was able to refer me through another locksmith! The process took less than 5 minutes and was able to do it in the evening. Will take credit or cash and both are friendly guys!

Really quick service. Bought a used car and only received a valet key and needed a new key. Cheaper than what the Honda dealers were offering. Would definitely call again.

Quick, easy service. Was in need of an auto lock/key repair. Matt came out and provided excellent service at a reasonable price. No hassle, no difficulties! Would ask for Matt in the future. Highly recommend their business.

I have used Gabriel Lock & Key on three separate occasions and each time I found him to be very professional and we never had any issues with any of his work. I also liked that he was very helpful regarding recommendations of which brands to use.

One other thing to mention is that my mechanic also highly recommended Gabriel and said "he's the best we've ever worked with." So I guess that would be two recommendations in one review! If you need a locksmith I would suggest you call Gabriel.

Great company. Got some high security locks installed. And Gabriel explained how easy it is to break in using conventional locks. Will definitely use him again.

I recently enlisted Gabriel to provide a re-key service for one of my first-time home buyers. He did a fantastic job and came in under budget. My client told be that he was extremely pleased with the entirety of the job. I will definitely hire Gabriel for all future East Bay jobs.

Gabriel did a great job rekeying my front door and supplying new keys. He was at my house the same morning that I called him. Gabriel had everything done within a short time, explained all my options clearly, was really professional and friendly, and most importantly made me feel safe at home.

I had an issue with my lock so I called Gabriel. He installed the lock over a year ago but was out on holidays. However, he called back within a few min, asked me to send him a picture of the lock, and then told me I could fix it quickly myself but he was happy to take a look when he came back. I was able to fix it in just a couple of min. Great customer service!!

Gabriel did a fantastic job on my 92 year old front and back door locks.  He is reliable, knowledgeable and on time for his appointment.  He helped me figure out the best way to upgrade my locks on my home.  I would highly recommend him and we will have him as our family locksmith.

Thank you Gabriel.

What can I say that hasn't already been said? Gabriel is professional, knowledgeable, and fast! He tailored his recommendations to fit my situation. For example, I told him I'm getting a new back door so he sold me the pre-keyed hardware but did not try to sell me installation that I didn't need. The guy knows his stuff and he'll help you understand.

Promptly responded to my request for help in replacing a broken deadbolt lock. Arrived at the schedule time, carefully explained pros and cons of lock options, including prices, then installed and tested the new lock. Will certainly use this service again when need arises.

Ask for change of locks in my medical office in Oakland. Gabriel staff came and change all the locks as asked, while at work, and I didn't even notice they were there working. All locks changed work perfect and I couldn't be happier. Not to mention an incredible price. Extremely happy

I've used this service for rekeying a few times. Very courteous and if he doesn't have time for an emergency, always has good referrals. I love that he's always at the ready to answer his own phone too. Overall a great experience and I always call him first when I have a project with locksmith needs.

Gabriel was very professional and knowledgeable. He taught me some things that I didn't know about my locks and security doors that allowed me to make an informed decision that included 2 new locks as opposed to rekeying the 8 locks that I had originally planned. It was a lot of money for me, but comparable and part of an overall security plan.
Victoria S.
10/27/2017
Gabriel was extremely professional and did his work quickly.  Setting up an appointment was very easy - he responded quickly to text messages and called us back.  We just needed a whole house re-key, but Gabriel did offer suggestions for improving our security as well (which we will take into consideration for the future).  I like that his keys are stamped with his info in case we ever need him in the future.

Mr Sarco could not have been nicer.  He showed up on time to our scheduled appointment to re-key the new house we just bought and took care of everything quickly from his mobile vehicle.  Super convenient, reasonably priced and the special care you only get from long time, local small businesses these days.

Needed to change out my locks quick. Great service. Reasonable prices. Been there for years. They're surrounded by all these new eateries. Probably a matter of time before rising rents is going to drive them out. Support these small businesses.

Fast and professional when it came to getting a new duplicate key for my Honda CR-V. Very helpful in giving options for a buttonless key or just transferring the transponder fob onto a new blank shell. He also gave suggestions to reduce the chances of having the key break again. Great work and even saved me over $100 in comparison to going to a Honda dealership

3) promptness, accuracy and efficiency of service
4) great selection
5) short service time, I was in and out in less than 10 minutes
6) they are so good, I was recommended by another locksmith! (This last point speaks volumes as to their work)

Sarco is very friendly and patient.  He will explain things in a gentle manner even if you have many questions.  He is very respectful of your time.

Sarco asked me to text him pictures of the house doors and locks.  He even came out for a free evaluation.  You can get the cost in writing.  Prices are very reasonable.  He will even bring out a binder that will show a range of locks from simple to intricate.

Went to Home Depot and wasted my time, that place is just a bunch of monkeys humping a football type of bad...  Sarcos took care of me like grandma takes care of a hunger. Made my motorcycle keys as well, he was making a copy from a bent master but his copies work better than the original ever did.

Sarco helped me duplicate a set of car keys that other folks have been unable to do. He has a large inventory of key blanks and made one for me immediately, and then special ordered a FOB key for my vehicle as well, which came in less than a week later. All in all, he saved me a trip to the dealer, which saved me at least $100. Plus, I really appreciated his prompt and professional service. Highly recommended!

We recently moved to our new house and asked Sarco to come and fix the locks for us. He asked for details about the locks beforehand so that he is well prepared for the job when he is there. We made an appointment and he was right on time. Took care of the job in few easy minutes. Very professional and reasonably priced.

I discovered this place while I was shopping for a piano next door.  Sarco is a nice guy, extremly knowledgeable and helpful.  I bought a lock and duplicated a key in less than 5 minutes.  Price is reasonable - comparable to home depot or lowes.

The owner of this small locksmith runs down the stairs with a smile the instant you open the door.  He is extremely fast and knowledgeable, and when I left, I felt like a special and valued customer.  There is a large selection of keys and services here, including many modern car and vehicle keys that normally have to be duplicated at a dealer.  There is also an impressive array of safes and a beautiful selection of hardware for your front door, in many different and elegant styles far surpassing the quality of Home Depot or Lowe's.  I wished very much I had a large order of corporate keys to make, as I wanted to give this store and its owner much more business.  The store is easy to get to - right on Baldwin from El Camino (just to the  N of downtown San Mateo) and go to the end on the right.

Great service.  I was in and out fast and got what I needed.  4 stars for way above average service.  I reserve my 5 stars for "whoo-I'm feeling flushed, I'm so impressed!" service.  I only needed keys and I don't go in there daily, so It's hard to get a good feel for the place...but like I said..."Way above average service".  I'd definitely go again.

This is one of the few "Locksmiths" that have a physical location so that is already a great positive, but they also can drive out to you. Came in and the two staff working were very professional, personable, and helped me with my car key in a fast and affordable price. Tried calling many lock smiths around and this was the best bet. Will surely come again next time!

Recommend!

We've had lock work done and keys made by O'Neil's and have always been well satisfied with this friendly, competent, and professional company. They are a model of how a small business should treat customers, and I'd recommend them heartily. Special thanks to Nolan!

I needed to replace a 50 year old lock that was not working. I called Oneils and they came the very next day on time. It was a difficult lock and took much longer than expected by Nolan. He did not give up and broke the lock up piece by piece, and replaced it with a brand new lock and did not charge me an extra penny for their extra time or effort. All along, he was extremely polite and professional. I appreciate Nolan's honesty and integrity and honoring the price. My regards to him and I will certainly recommend him for all lock jobs.

Came here on 2 separate occasions during store hours and they are closed. Very unreliable and a waste of time. Also, they only have 1 staff and wait is ridiculous. There are plenty of lock smiths around. Avoid this one at all cost.

I took in a destroyed key. Barely together and bent. They carefully cut a new key and even recreated the cuts by hand where the machine couldn't go. The charges were surprisingly low considering the skill level of the craftsmanship. The key worked perfectly. I recommend.

Great job on the installation of 4 security cameras at our warehouse. Cameron and Nolan paid lots of attention to details, especially the wiring needed to hook up cameras to the video recording unit. They also can duplicate any key. No need to go anywhere else for your security needs. Very professional and honest. Forget home depot and other places that cut your keys. They are specialists who won't waste your time.

If you're local and need spare keys made or copied, go here! Had my car key copied copies in less than 10 minutes and only costed me $5 for a standard copy. The 2 owners who are brother were friendly and chill.

Dont waste your time with a mobile service unless you are locked out.

I needed a key cut from a code for my utility boxes (didn't have the original), Ron did it very quickly and for a much more reasonable price than anyone else!

What's most interesting about the reviews here is that only ONE person gave this business a poor grade, and everyone else gave it five stars (with the exception of a woman who only gave it four after raving about the service and price, guess she doesn't believe in giving out five stars . . . .). I think that says pretty much everything you need to know.

Went in there hoping to get my car key cut. Home Depot had murdered the blank I gave them and it was basically useless. Fortunately the guy cutting keys there determined that it was salvageable and in a few minutes I walked out of there with a car key that now works. Best of all, they didn't charge me for the service.  Lesson learned, go to a genuine Iocksmith for key needs and avoid the automated machines at hardware stores.  That might explain why my house keys are difficult to use. Once I find the master I'm bringing them here to get recut.

I'm not sure what happened to the guy with a low review, but I gave these guys a try for some commercial locksmithing I needed done after they were recommended to me by the property manager of a huge tech company. Initially I was like: huh, a huge company uses a small family owned locksmith?!?... but after having them out to our offices now I understand.

I'm forever going to refer to the owner Ron as "the lock whisperer". Ron came out, assessed what I needed, sent me a written quote that afternoon, ordered the parts, then came out the next day and had it done by lunch time. In the process Ron had provided a number of suggestions to achieve what I wanted at the most reasonable cost, was knowledgable about the relevant fire codes, had to work in a challenging environment and did a great job to top it off with high quality workmanship.

I'll unreservedly be calling the lock whisperer again soon.

David came out to the mobile home we just secured in North San Jose and re-keyed three locks for us.  Very personable and professional and he completed the work pretty darn quick!  The person I spoke to in the office to make the appointment was also very professional and if I need any locksmith services in the future, I know where to go!

They are now located off Laurelwood in Santa Clara. Wonderful family business.  Came to get a duplicate car key made, after Home Depot couldn't get it right. Sorry HD. But, O'Neil came through and made sure my key fit my car before I left, and provided great customer service. These are the types of family businesses we need in our towns. Support your local businesses!

I had another company try and charge me $300.00 to change my office lock and make some keys...long story short I told him to leave immediately because i was steaming mad at the balls of this guy trying to hustle me. I called O'Neils and spoke to Nolan or Nathan (sorry forgot name) and told him the situation and what kind of lock and door i had. He didnt have anyone available that day but once i told him the story he sent a tech named David within 30 minutes. David was in and out in 20 minutes" Saved the day and the cost was an honest price. Nolan and David are exactly who you need. I will refer thanks fellas. Eric F.

My roommates recently moved out and I have 3 doors into my house and only 2 keys that work. I took my locks to them and they re-keyed them all so they match 1 lock. I love having only 1 key for all the locks to my house. Thank you Stephanie & Nathan!

This was the 2nd time I've used them. Years ago before Yelp existed I used them at my job. I was in charge of all the keys in the office, what a mess! I straightened it out and the only key I didn't have a copy of was the VP's office key. Within about 2 weeks of getting the keys in order he locked his keys in the office and came to me asking for one, I didn't have it and I called O'Neill's, they were only about 10 mins away from the office and I knew they could get the door open. They sent someone right away and he got the door open so quickly. Their rate was reasonable too considering the super quick service.

I live and work out of their area now but when I need something done I don't mind driving to them because I know they will get it done right.

Please stay away from them for you security needs. They recently did a lock installation at my place and did a shoddy job.

I had called them to install a Schlage electronic door lock. The installer who performed the installation came 20 minutes late. He was not communicated that this job involved replacing the lock itself and not just re-keying the existing lock. And I guess he already had a lot of jobs planned after mine. Instead of rescheduling, he tried to rush through it and I think that caused the problems mentioned below.

The installer did not install the reinforcement plate and strike of the new lock and just kept the existing (older) strike plate as-is. As per the manufacturer we must install the included reinforcement plate and strike in order to maintain BHMA Grade 1 status of the lock. Wanting to have a highest-grade lock was the main reason I wanted to change my lock. How could he skip that? Do you want such a person working on your lock? I found this out later when I went through the installation manual and realized that he never changed the strike plate.

Also, the installer used power tools to install the deadbolt; this is prohibited by the manufacturer guidelines as it could screw up the electronics inside the lock.

Additionally, the deadbolt mechanism was not installed straight. It leans towards the left. What kind of a licensed business hires a person who cannot attach something to the door in a straight line?

I have attached the pictures of the installation.

- Never needed a locksmith before so seeing all his great reviews on Yelp.. I gave him a call.

- Called @ 4 & talked to Ed. He let me know he'd get to my house around 6pm & told me the pricing. I wasn't in a hurry so the time worked for me.

- He was very professional when he came. He brought a under-study & they both explained to me what they were doing.
