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.

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.
Esther M.

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!

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 needed some locks rekeyed and Earl was very efficient.  He does a great job, his prices are fair and I am happy to refer him to other friends and clients in need of lock repair or replacement.  Earl has many years experience as a locksmith.  Put his number in your cell phone now as when the time comes, you will be happy you don't have to look for it.

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!!

Wow! Fast and Very Friendly! Highly Recommend

Came to have a few keys duplicated during lunch. Was in and out of the store in less than 5 minutes.

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.

I needed what's called a "admin" or "master" transponder key for my Ford Focus and I spent several days calling around to many locksmiths (mobile and in-store) with no luck. Getting my calls or emails returned were very hap-hazard and I didn't get any warm fuzzies from talking with them. I finally got a referral to Parker Locksmith from a another locksmith in town. I called them and the owner wasn't sure if he handle my request but wanted to research this and get back to me. He actually did some homework and called me back stating he could do it. Upon taking my car in, they encountered problems but they refused to give up and kept at the problem AND did resolve the issues. And, the price was much better than the dealership and extremely fair. I told them I would become a customer for life and I mean it!  Highly, highly recommend Parker for auto, home, or commercial security and locksmith needs. They take pride in their work and provide great customer service to boot.

Stopped in this afternoon to have a new blank key cut for my Lexus, as the plastic housing on the original had pretty much disintegrated.  Bill was super friendly, fast and affordable. The outstanding cleanliness/organization of the store was comforting, and there was tons of cool stuff to look at everywhere.  I was in and out in less than ten minutes.  10/10 would recommend.  These are my go to lock and security people from now on.

Tucker from Parker Security saved our day! Finding out we were locked out of our house, I called several locksmiths who were unavailable and finally got a referral from one of them to Parker Security.

Tucker arrived in 30 minutes and got us into our house in less than 5 minutes!

I am keeping their phone # in my contacts for the next emergency! What could have been a very stressful experience was made much less painful with their quick response! Thank-you!

Tucker came out, was professional, very efficient and fixed our door problem!  I highly recommend them!

Came in last Thu for a quote on programming a new flop for my 2013 Nissan Leaf. I was quoted $75 and it was written on their biz card. Came back today with my own flop to do the programming.. behold, the older gentleman told me he cannot honor the price! I told him the quote is written on the card but he mumbled about getting a pin... I asked to see a manager and he instructed the guy to honor the price...  then another shocker, they can honor the price but not guarantee it will work! I asked why wasn't I been informed when I was given the quote? The manager couldn't answer and told me to go to other locksmith...

Still wondering... a locksmith can't guarantee their work? What a joke and waste of time..
Do ask for quote in writing or else you will face similar situation..  will file a complaint with Consumer Protection for false advertisement...

AMAZING people... I can't thank them enough! I took my key because the shell/case broke the day before and at work my coworkers tried to glue it so I can get home that worked but it wasn't steady I called them and Bill answered 30 mins before closing I took my key in he tried his level best to help me since some of the glue had leaked a little on the chip... It was really risky he explained it and he took help from another worker Adrian and they did it.... They retrieved my chip safely and got a key done for me! Thank you so much Adrian and Bill...!

My experience here wasn't so bad. The old man made sure which key I had and was somewhat helpful to not mess up on these keys I bought online. The tips of the cut on the keys weren't perfect, but a little grinder at home fixed the job. New keys just have to be broken in to properly work smoothly.

I lost my only spare car key on Saturday in Downtown Mountain View and let me tell you, trying to get a new one, has been the most annoying process ever. It took me 2 car dealership to get a blank key and went to 6 locksmith only to find out that they were no longer in business. Finally, I came across a family business, Parker Security & Locksmith Service in Fremont. I was welcomed by two sweet little boys who made sure their mom could make me a new key and that they could solve any problem. While I waited for their mom to call for a key code, they taught me about the different types of keys and how they use different methods to approach a customer and amongst other stuff. Finally, I told their mom that her kids were amazing and I wished I had their personality and their communication skills at their age. P.S. The 8 year old boy made sure I left with a business card. Definitely a place I would go back.

I needed to replace lost keys for the side cases on my BMW K1200RS motorcycle and reluctantly decided to try a locksmith. After having seen Parker's facility on Grimmer on numerous times, I decided to stop in and give them a try.
I found their showroom well lit, well stocked (not just keys but all types of high quality security items; safes, bicycle locks, etc) and well organized.  
Gene waited on me and provided an estimate for the price and schedule to complete. He shared risks/benefits of various options and I agreed to having two new keys done.
Early the next day I picked up the finished keys which fit both BMW side case locks perfectly and the price was very reasonable.
All staff members were personable, professional, and knowledgeable when asked various locksmith questions.
I highly recommend Parker Security.

I was there last week and Gene helped me. I was asking for a car key to be copied to a key I purchased online. It's the type of key with the remote attached to the key. I had a blank key, with the remote casing empty. I was going to remove the remote's original guts and install them myself into the new key's casing. Gene told me that he could do it for a price of $10. I said sure because of the trouble that the chip may cause. Gene showed me how the remote buttons (on the inside) worn down due to my daughter's nails. The plastic cover wore down due to constant pressing of the button. But, Gene was able to manufacture a piece of plastic to correct the button's defect. Gene then was able to recover the original key code and made my car key. He showed me the original key and how much the key had wore down compared to the key code. Once I got home I tested the remote and the car started immediatly. Great customer service Gene, thanks.

Phoned Parker Security to change locks due to tenancy change. Company was easy and professional to deal with and appointment set at short notice? Quote received in advance so cost was clear from the start.
Engineer came out as scheduled with a courtesy call 15 mins in advance so I knew who to expect. Ed was polite, timely , professional and did a great job - making sure I was satisfied with all locks etc? I would highly recommend - and use- Parker security again in the future

Just got keys done from Parker security 3 minutes ago.

(Update: this was a long time ago that I drafted this email just never got the chance to post it)

I first called centerville locksmiths yesterday because Parker was closed. Centerville seemed like jerks so this morning I called Parker and everyone was friendly. Ed, Harry, and the lady (sorry I forgot your name!) were all very nice. They gave me a great deal and were right around the block so I asked them to do the job.

They came by 15 minutes later and the mailman was there just by luck so they didn't have to open up the community box on their own (good thing it wasn't my normal mailman who is a prick and was extremely rude when I told him my situation last week. I didn't even ask to grab mail from him. Anyways that's a whole other story). But that basically saved me even more money which was great.

Ed finished the job in about 10 minutes, I got my keys, paid by square, and that was done. Finally got all my mail... And bills.

Thanks guys!

I had a '62 Dodge truck door lock in need of reconfiguring to accept my key.

After calling many companies only to hear "We don't do that" or "You're looking at $190 for us to come to you" I was getting discouraged.

Last week as I was working making deliveries, my stop was right next to Parker Security. I decided to give them a try.

Ed Lind, who happened to be at his van listened to my situation and said to bring it in. I brought the lock in with a key the next day. He said he didn't think it would be too hard to fix. He said it would be done the next day.

The lock fits my key perfect and I would not hesitate to recommend them.

I highly recommend him for your locksmith needs.

This is my first time using Key Factory for a Toyota mechanical key duplication. I called a day ahead and they explained everything clearly with a price quote.
After I got there, the first thing they checked was to make sure the original key worked fine with the car door lock and also after the key was made from the blank.
I feel they were very professional and the price was reasonable, highly recommend to others.

So I went into the store and was greeted nicely. Brian was actually pretty cool and he is a nice decent guy. He helped me through with my key cutting. It took 5 minutes for him to complete the work. I was quoted price of around 140-170$ for key cutting and programming it, but this good guy here, decreased it to 5$. Probably the cheapest price I could get. And yes, the car keys worked totally fine. I tried many other lock-smiths too, but all in vain. He also tried fixing my door belt and checked the trunk too if it was working properly. I would definitely recommend anyone to visit this shop if you need anything related to lock and stuff. Probably the best shop in bay area.

I was recommend to this place and was told if anyone was going to have the keys I needed it would be this place. They were 100% right! No only did they have what I needed but they had the customer service to match. As long as these guys are around I will give them all my business and refer others to them. Keep up the GREAT work.

Place is slightly harder to find as I've never been to this shopping plaza before (even though I live quite close by, it's an older plaza w/ stores that I don't need/visit), but I found it after circling around for a couple min.

Walked in, spke to owner who's been there for 39 yrs (so mom and pop shop), and he helped me make 2 key copies exactly as I wanted (they work).  Paid cash.  I was out in 3min.  Would highly recommend.

Don't know what else you could ask for - friendly, knowledgeable, and quick. The guys there clearly know their stuff, and it was nice to learn a little bit about locks. Will definitely come again if needed!

I needed a duplicate key for my travel trailer. After going to usual places like Home Depot, Orchard Supply...none of them could help. I went to RV World in Morgan Hill, got a referral to RV on Phelan in San Jose, still no help. I came to Key Factory out of desperation and within minutes, I got a duplicate key with color rubber head for less than $5. The service was very friendly and fast. So if you need a rare, hard to cut key, this is the place!

Found this place on Yelp and it's pretty small but I got 4 copies for $5 and it was fast and helpful. They weren't normal sized keys either and it was done in under 5 minutes. Definitely going back.

Absolutely fantastic! First class service and communication.

I called Rich to install an alarm for me at a vacant property I was trying to sell. He immediately returned my call, and that same day I had him over to install a new system. It wasn't long before the squatters who were once wandering and loitering my property were gone.

Rich and his team are the absolute best! Great customer service and so very professional.

Thanks RN Security!

Awesome customer service, asked for a little extra work and without delay or push back they knocked out the side job.

I am so impressed with the professionalism of Rich the owner and Robert the service person who came.  I called at least 10 companies:  no answer, no call back, Bay Alarm stood me up twice, a guy from SF did not even know there was a switch for my alarm system.  To Robert, it was all transparent and easy.  He came on time, turned it on, tested every element.  All good and it was a real pleasure dealing with such a charming and knowledgeable guy.  This is going to be my security company henceforth.

Rich, the owner, was great in coming in to my business and assessing the need for the proper security system. The two technicians who came down and did the install were very knowledgeable and their attention to detail was impeccable. They noticed that I had a dutch split door, which Rich must have missed. They were able to tweak the install and add a sensor to both portions of the door as an extra precaution. Cleaned up all of their work and mess after each portion of the install. Completely and totally satisfied, and will definitely use them again!

Had a home break in and needed a home alarm system ASAP. The big companies ADP and Bayhill seemed so impersonal and so big they couldn't care less about me.
Enter Rich and his company. Locally owned and operated. Great on the phone, rushed us into his schedule (without an increase in fee). Service call, inspection, quote and installation within 1week.
Installation crew polite, professional and very respectful.
So far VERY pleased with R N Security!

I had a Baldwin front door lock set that had worn out and needed fixing or replacement. They had the repair kit in stock and even helped me understand how it needed to be installed. All at a very reasonable price. They are real professionals and do it with a smile. A+

I returned home from the doctor, with a sick child,  to find my door latch broken.  We were locked out during a time that was horrible.  Gary was personable on the phone and showed up at our place in 20 minutes.   He was quick and very nice.  I was very happy I called this company!

I have also used them to make copies of keys.  I have never had a problem.

We needed to replace a lock on my parent's sliding door and we're extremely happy with Gary at 1st Lock.  Like many people of my parent's generation, my parent's were concerned about hiring a thief to replace a their lock.  When I expressed that concern to Gary, he was completely understanding and immediately guided me to his Better Business Bureau  and Diamond Certified reviews and invited us to his standing store on San Antonio Avenue.  
Gary and his staff are very attentive, prompt, confident, professional, knowledgeable and friendly.
We needed a follow up appointment and Gary called me back immediately after my inquiry and showed up at my parent's door within 30 minutes - super nice  -  a quality person with a quality business.  Highly recommend.

Superb experience with this locksmith. He arrived within one hour of me calling and opened the door in less than one minute. The whole process was seamless and I appreciated it that they took my call right away. The price is right, for $125 I got by door unlocked and a second set of keys as a holiday gift.
So cool!

Great service for a tenant of mine that came home to a broken deadbolt on her back door. It was after 5:00 so had to pay overtime and that was o.k. with me. Can't have a tenant not feeling safe in her unit. Gary came out that same evening and replaced the broken lock in addition to making the door easier to close and stay shut.
Would definitely call Gary again.

Gary is the best!  I am a local restaurant owner with locations in Santa Clara and Los Altos and I can always depend on him to help me right away.    Most places don't work with commercial doors but First Lock can handle any lock.     I highly recommend.

We had trouble with the entrance door and phoned for an appointment。They said they had an opening and could come within an hour. Zach came in 30 minutes and fixed the door in 20 minutes. We didn't even have to change to new keys.

Prompt , courteous and professional. Overall all , a very pleasant experience with reasonable charge. Would definitely recommend to friends.

I'm a Realtor and was concerned about changing the locks after my client moved in to their new home.  Who knows who had those keys before?  1st lock came out right away and got new keys for the existing locks rather than replacing all of the hardware!  That was a great recommendation for my client and I appreciate them looking out for them rather than trying to sell them hardware they didn't need.  I know I'll use 1st lock again soon!

I am really impressed with their service. I called them up to a fix an appointment. Zach came on time and helped me remove the combination lock on my storage room door (as I had forgotten the combination). Very happy and will definitely use their service again.

These guys deserve the five star rating they have gotten here. I needed a lock installed so I called Gary who was incredibly nice over the phone. He had someone to my house within an hour. My technician, Zach, was awesome. He was nice, very respectful, knowledgeable and skilled. I asked him about a few other lock issues that had plagued us since building our house. He listened carefully and was able to easily solve all of these problems. He efficiently did all that asked and even had his own vacuum with him to clean up any dust that had been caused by the installation of the lock. These guys are top notch!

I brought in several new deadbolts that I had bought online that I needed to have keyed alike (the online site would not do this for me).  I had expected just to drop off the units, but the owner did them right then.  Very meticulous, very friendly.  I highly recommend this business.  I haven't bought any of the hardware they carry at the store, but next time I'm in need of new door sets I will definitely shop here first.

Have to drop my review from five to three stars. Upon my second experience with this company, they charged me almost three times what others were going to charge. I made the mistake of not asking the price up front because they were fair the first time, but they really stuck it to me this time. Ouch. I probably won't call them again for a while.

Alex was the best locksmith! Our search is over, he was professional and a real gentleman, it's very rare to find such customer service with excellent work at a very fair price. Our lock set looks and works great! A+++++, will recommend to all our neighbors,friends and family.

Alex came within one hour of me calling him for help to open my mailbox. He arrived and attempted to pick the lock for about 15-20 min fortunately and unfortunately it's a good lock and he wasn't able to pick it but was able to give me some good advice on what to do. He was extremely nice and helpful!

Eddie saved my butt after I locked myself out.  He came really quickly on a Saturday afternoon and was very efficient, quick and friendly.

After reading the great reviews for Kamand, I called them, talked to Eddie,  he told me to send him some photos by email which will allow him to assess what will need to be done.
I did send him the requested photos, called him back the next day.
He was driving and told me that as soon as he gets off the freeway, he will call me, I am still waiting.....
very unprofessional

I moved into a new condo and needed the front door deadbolt and knob rekeyed. Eddie was able to come over on a Saturday afternoon in his mobile workshop. He did an expert job, the decades-old locks operate like butter! He also adjusted my door to open and close more smoothly! I never thought I'd be so happy doing something as simple as opening the door to my home.

Came out quickly, had some great teamwork going on, talked me through future options for my crappy locks.

I would definitely use them again!

We needed to re-key our locks in a pinch, and Alex Kamand came to our rescue!

Kamand Locksmith Services was highly recommended to us by a friend who had been using them for years and was always very satisfied--we can see why, and we totally agree!

Alex was very responsive to our call and very professional and courteous. He came to us within a few hours of our call and had the job done cleanly and quickly. And his price was reasonable as well!

Thank you, Alex Kamand and Kamand Locksmith Services, for a job well done!

I've used Kamand twice and they provided the same exceptional service both times. I had two keypads to install. Alex and Eddie came, so the work was done twice as fast. Pricing is reasonable and I could get an appointment on short notice. They were on time. I would definitely use them again in the future.

I have used Kamand Locksmith for years and they are wonderful every time.  This time, Eddie came on a Saturday to take care of an urgent request .... and did so with a smile.  He is so kind, professional, efficient and just a pleasure to work with.  I would never use anyone else but these guys.

Eddie and his Brother are awesome. They installed 4 locks for me at my store in Soma. Ordering specialty locks takes some time, but once they have them, scheduling and install is a breeze. I wouldn't go anywhere else.

Someone broke into the metal box that holds the key for USPS to get into the lobby. Being safe than sorry, I had the core changed. I called Kamand Locksmith and Eddie was over in about 40 minutes. Fantastic, fast, friendly service. I highly recommend them.
* UPDATE 2/19 - called yesterday due to the USPS locked box being broken into again. I called, left a voice mail, no return call.
Vinnie L.
1/27/2016
I used Kamand Locksmith every time I need to get my locks rekeyed.  I ask for Eddie every time because he is just awesome.  Sadly my tenants keeps losing their keys so I've seen Eddie about 3-4 times now.  Eddie ask if I would like some recommendations to simply my locks but he said it is totally up to me on what I want to do.  I really appreciate recommendations from Eddie and he wasn't pushy at all to sway my decision one way or another.  

Overall, if you are looking for someone that you can trust, shows up timely, and just friendly and willing to answer all of your questions then call Kamand for Eddie!

If you have a tricky key you need copied, go to Lou Garza at Foothill Locksmiths.  I had a very small Laser cut key and they pulled out an old machine to do it.  They got me to "YES" instead of "NO" like all the other places I tried.

They charged $120 for a trip to my site which is the same city. Another $60 for a key fix. All in all, I was charged $180. When I asked about the yelp deal, they didn't honor it either :(
I will not use their service again.

I took my 2016 Ford explorer here to get a second key. I bought the car with only one programmed key and was quoted by the dealer $395 to program and cut the key. The previous owner included a new un-programmed key which the dealer said they do not guarantee would program. The dealer said worst case scenario is I am out $140 for the attempt to program and 95$ to laser cut the key, and if they couldn't program the key, a new one was 395$. The dealer also needed half a day with the car. I went to Foothill Locksmiths without an appointment, I was greeted and quoted 80$ for the program and 60$ to cut the key. They told me worst case I would be out 80$ for the attempt to program. 20 minutes later I was on my way with a programmed and cut key. Needless to say, I drove from tracy to get my lock work done and would do it again.

I was referred to this company by another excellent company in Newark because Foothill Locksmiths were familiar with the brand of my safe which I could not open after so many years.  The staff at Foothill was very professional, ethical--and knowledgeable.  They spent about three hours on my safe, and finally, not only did they crack the code, but made the movements much smoother.  It is like I have a new safe again!  I will not hesitate to use them I the future, and I will refer my friends as well.  Thank you!

I came in today to have an extra car key made, and I must say I was more than impressed with the friendly and knowledgable staff. I was in and out in less then 10 minutes, which made the process very convenient. Even though there are a couple of other locksmiths closer to me, I will be coming back for all my future locksmith needs.

We had an unusual lock on a security door that we wanted re-keyed.  The other locksmiths that we contacted said that due to the unusual nature of the lock, they could not re-key it. We finally called Foothill Locksmiths and they had a technician who knew that type of lock and was able to re-key it.  They also came out and fixed a door handle in about 10 minutes that I could not figure out how to get off after fiddling with it for an hour.

This place was awesome! I had a special key I needed copied. Other places like the big box hardware stores wouldn't carry it.
it looks like they carry every type and size key imaginable.

It's located in a really random spot on a busy street and has a small parking lot. The parking situation is really really weird.  I had to turn around completely to get out.

I emailed from their site a request to move a safe from orinda to Oakley. From that moment on they were quick and very helpful with providing all the information needed to make the move quick and easy. Felix helped arrange everything and provided the quote. Once they got to my place they took their time and made sure not to damage anything in the process (because a 600lb safe isn't the easiest thing to maneuver in a home). Defiantly recommend them if you need a safe moved.

Foothill Locksmith has a wide range of services than a normal locksmith. For example, I had to get my car door locks changed and they were able to have it done in a couple of hours. I would recommend Lou, who's been doing this for 9 years, and he'll recommend the cheapest way to do a service. He was able to match my keys with the original as well. I gave it a 4 star because I liked the honest service of Lou and others, the cheap prices, and the cleanliness of the shop, but the area is near the train and bart tracks, which is a little disturbing. Other than that, I'd give them a 5. Ask for Lou.

I have been here three times. Customer service is tops, first came to have my locks changed when I moved into my new home, second was to get my broken mailbox key replaced and third was coming back because it didn't quite fit. I didn't dock any stars because they no questions asked simply made two new keys without even needing a receipt or saying a word. Warm friendly service at comparable prices plus it's close to my casa.

Best locksmith I have ever been to.  They have a good collection of key blanks for vintage cars.  I have had a lot of stuff done from them in the past . The prices are reasonable to.  They were always able to do what I needed.

I called Foothill Locksmiths to come out and rekey a home for me.  

There was nothing spectacular about their service.  The gentleman who did the work did his job, no smiles... no frowns.  He did leave one of my locks a bit loose which I fixed myself later as he had already left.  

I have used other locksmiths in various area of the Bay Area and the job that Foothill Locksmith did was just average.  Nothing to rave about.

You need quality,  professional, timely service M-F search no more...just call or bring your locks, keys, safe down to get it done right the first time. I've been using Foothill since 1995 and always left happy. I've had all the outside doors keyed so I only needed one on my keychain, and all copies worked the first time I put them in the locks. I also had room locksets that needed to be rekeyed and they handled those efficiently....again first time's a charm! I bought a safe once there on clearance. It survived a fire and a fall. I can't give this business enough stars!

I just recently purchased a used Toyota that came with only one key so I ordered 2 blank key transponders off of Amazon and came here for the cut.  I gave them the original and the two blank keys and in less than 5 minutes I had two duplicates.  I was charged @ $6 for each key.  I was able to program the key to work when I got home and the key fit the ignition flawlessly, highly recommend these guys.

Their shop is right by the train/BART tracks and had plenty of parking out in front.

Foothill Locksmiths (595 E.  Lewelling, Hayward, near the RR & BART tracks) is my "go-to" for any lock issues, and has been since I was introduced to them many years ago. My most recent visit was today: Lou & Felix had me in and out straightaway with problem solved (intelligently, not just "buy a..."). Just what I've come to expect after years of great service at the shop. They know their craft and the sundry different locks from new to those that haven't been made in decades. I have no association with them except as a completely satisfied customer. Most highly recommended!
