Rick did a great job.  Quoted a reasonable price and stuck too it.  I had my key break in half and it was lodged in the keyhole.  He got it out and made a new key for me with no extra charge!  He came in about an hour after I called him.  Great job and I would use him again in a heartbeat.
Jeff P.
I called the key shop to help me with my problem, Rick answered and told me it was no problem for him to open the lock I had. He arrived at the time he said he would or maybe even earlier and had it open in a minute. I am happy with the service he provided and glad to spread the word.
Robin G.
I had a very last minute request for a Sheriff lockout and called Rick was on it!   He showed up on time and got the job done quickly and professionally.  Highly recommend his services!
Betsy S.
Key Shop was excellent - super fast, best quote/price I found, 100% professional and overall excellent service and quality.  Really positive experience!
Sean L.
Looked up a locksmith for a rekeying of all the doors to our house. Came across Rick while researching online and he responded quickly with a very reasonable price quote. We were able to schedule a lock re-keying the very next day. He arrived a bit earlier than the scheduled appointment time, and greeted with a handshake and polite personality. I was able to have seven locks rekeyed (two more were last minute additions) and have three sets of keys made. Rick's entire workshop is in his van so this made the job fast, efficient, and complete. Rick also answered additional questions which were very helpful and informative.

I highly recommend The Key Shop. Thank you.

We left the Door key in house by accident and call "The Key Shop - Mobile locksmith"

Rick, communicated forward the flat fee "reasonable  cost". Rick is a knowledgeable and professional individual.
He opened the door in less then five minutes.
There are many scam artist out there that they try to charge around $250-$350 to do the job. I fully trust Rick and his business.
Jon Q.
Rick re keyed 8 of my doors. He arrived at my house quickly in less than 40 minutes to San Lorenzo. He gave me a price quote on the phone and he was the most reasonable and fair price from other shops. Excellent service. Give him a call you wont be disappointed
Ryan B.
I called The Key Shop last week to have a few different jobs done that I had been puting off for a while. Rick was profesional and gave me a very fair estimates up front. He did not try and upsell me or come up with a bunch of mystery charges half way thorugh the job. More imporatantly, the service was prompt and professionally done and I would recomend them highly!
John F.
Called them up to have our whole house re-keyed. The price was reasonable and the service was excellent. Rick explained the technicalities very well and even gave us tips to "secure" our home. I would definitely recommend them to my friends.

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.
Joanne G.
Foothill Locksmiths have been around for decades and they consistently do good work at fair prices.
Trina S.
This business offers great products so that their customers sleep better at night. Katelyn Radtke is an expert and will offer solutions for businesses and residential customers to increase security and peace of mind. I've referred business to this company and will continue to do so.
Wendy L.
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.
Aileen T.
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!
Miguel B.
Bad service the over charge I came to make my car key and the guy that service tell me that for cut the key was $ 60 went Price on Pete's is $29 don't recommend
Joel K.
Got my subaru key copied here. 5.95 out the door. quick and easy. definitely recommend this place.
Jamie B.
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.
Walter A.
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.
Vanni L.
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.
Stephanie A.
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.
Daniko W.
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.
Nick B.
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.
Tim S.
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.
Sammy s.
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.
Ida Slapter D.
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!
D D.
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.
h w n.
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!
Mike J.
I took my 1967 Porsche with a worn out key to Lou and he cut a new one that works like new,He is a real locksmith with patience determination and the appreciation of classic vintage cars,

Juan Jaime was great ! Thank you for the service he was excellent & very helpful. Really nice workers it was something quick
Naomi R.
AMPM Locksmith....friendly and efficient service.  Wasn't sure how quickly they could get to me...I was thinking a day or two but when he said a half hour I was sold!! I would recommend their service
Taylor P.
I came in to get a second key for my vehicle that only came with one when purchased used, fast and friendly service!
Lorri W.
I needed an extra key for my 1986 BMW.  Nothing fancy, no electronics involved with the key.  BMW dealer was going to charge me over $80.00 for one key.  Got two keys made at AMPM for $8.00 a key.  Keys work just fine, they start the car and lock the doors.  Saving me quite a bit of money.
Lola F.
Yelp find. My car key battery was dying on me so I came here to get it changed out. Found this place on yelp when I did a search for keys. It's location is pretty convenient being that it's on the main road, but if you're driving on Crow Canyon coming from the freeway and going towards Alcosta, you'll have to make a u-turn.

I was in and out in 5 minutes. They took my key, replaces the battery, and gave me my key back real quick. Perfect for me cause I have other places to go. Cost was $10.85...not sure if this is cheap or expensive so you decide. Also not sure if price is based on the make and model of your car.

I would like to add a note about their customer service. If you're looking for a place that's going to chat with you, smile, or get to know you then I suggest going somewhere else. The guy who helped me, BJ, didn't smile or partake in small talk. He was just direct and too the point, which was fine with me honestly. I have another car key that needs a new battery so I'll probably come back because they got the job done and fast.
Kimberley T.
AMPM Locksmith struggled to get our fobs working. However, they really stepped up and provided us with good customer service.  We were kept up to date on what was happening with the car and when we could expect the car to be ready.
Samantha O.
Great service. Very efficient. I got a new key cut for my car but missed one step in programming it myself so they talked me through the last steps to do it on my own and it worked great!
Michael G.
Kuldeed was amazing.  Super knowledgeable, fast and affordable.  Don't go to the dealer if you need a replacement key - go to AMPM.
Paula G.
Bill and PJ came to our condo to install a new door handle/lock on the front door and fixed the porch door handle which wouldn't close properly.  I also had them make five keys.  Very knowledgeable and the price was reasonable.  Highly recommend their service.  Would definitely use them again.
Cameron K.
Chida was fantastic along with the other employees that assisted. I was able to get a 2nd Key for my Nissan. They also respected me as a customer and made me duplicate house key at no charge. Reasonable pricing and great service. Thanks!
Kyle H.
I have been using AM/PM Locksmith in San Ramon for years, so it was an easy choice when I needed a local lock smith in the Concord area. They responded promptly to my urgent request and were hones and helpful with my issue. Keep up the good work!
Alton L.
I had an extra key made for my sister's car that she purchased used and it only came with one master key and so we had them make another key. Their prices are reasonable and they finished cutting and programing new key within 1/2 hour.
Kari M.
We were referred to AMPM Locksmith by our auto shop to get a new key fob. The dealer wanted to charge us almost $400 to purchase and program a new key. My husband spoke to Chida and he gave us a deal that was about 1/3 the price and we didn't have to pay tax if we paid cash. I would recommend AMPM if you need a new car key, don't go to the dealer.
Professor P.
I was in and out in 10 minutes with a new remote, and their prices are less than half what the dealer charges!
Johnny S.
I officially retract my previous review as this place is extremely suspect.  I called to get the prius fob done and quoted me $200.  I went in today the girl asks me, did you call beforehand to get a quote?  Yes, $200.  She calls her boss, he's apparently says no, everyone gets $220.  

What the heck?  I come all the way here to be lied to?  And why does she even have to ask if I got a quote beforehand?  So sorry, you don't get my business if you're going to be so shady.
Andrew H.
Came by today to get a blank key I got from a car remote website cut and programmed. Took a bit longer than expected since the key I bought from the website wasn't programming. *tip:don't buy refurbished key remotes* all in all, I paid less than half what the dealer quoted me for a replacement car remote for my 2016 corolla. I appreciate the amount of time they took to get the key to work perfectly, I highly recommend this place if you need replacement remotes!
Alex C.
Called them at 8AM on a Sunday morning for a home lockout. They answered the phone and had a locksmith at my home within 30 minutes. We found out that we have a KwikSet lock, which required the key plug to be drilled out. Locksmith had us in the home after 5 minutes. He offered to help with the new lock and re-key at his office if necessary. Great experience. If I ever get locked out of a KwikSet in the future, I know to just drill it out myself.
Ellen K.
Prompt, professional and reasonable. We've had two projects completed recently and will definitely use AMPM Locksmith for all our key and lock needs in the future!
Sara A.
Wow! Chita was so accommodating and easy to talk to. I called 3 other places and went back to ampm because he took the time to talk w me. Then when his technician Weeja showed up, he was just as nice! We had lost a key to the car and it had been sitting up for a while. Weeja not only made a key in 10 minutes but also hooked up the jumper cables to make sure it would start! Talk about going above and beyond! The Chita calls me after and asked how everything went! They go all over the East Bay so I'm definitely calling ampm back if I'm ever in need again. Thank you!!
Michael S.
Fast and friendly, and definitely wants to make sure they make you happy! Only place I could find that can cut and program my 2009 Volkswagen. Much cheaper than the dealer too!

Went in for a quick key copy, got out in no time and job well done :).  Would be awesome if they can put out a business sign outside, was hard to find this place at first.
Silver R.
Not really helpful.  Went there to get my car remote duplicated and they said it is an after-market thing and they could not help me.  What does that mean.  You advertise that you can fix almost all car remotes and then you say that to me, WTH??!!
Glenn G.
Trustworthy Neighborhood Locksmith!!

I decided to add a second deadbolt for convenience and security purposes with our house cleaners, which gives them access to entering our home while away and a sense of peace knowing they don't have full access to our home. So, I decided to go with a local neighborhood business to support the community.

When I initially called, they were upbeat and knowledgeable after holding for a sec. They had a very interesting hold song btw that made me realize these guys are probably old school and know what they're doing. Luckily, they were able to set up an appointment with a few days notice as well.

On the day of the appointment, Paul was nice enough to offer an earlier time and was there at the time agreed upon. When he introduced himself he was very courteous and professional. He was purposely clear on communicating what was going to be done and even confirmed if I was alright with the placement/location of the new lock for aesthetic purposes.

He was done in less than an hour and cleaned up all of the dust after the drilling/sawing. He was even generous enough to add longer "kick-proof" screws on all of my locks without asking. He was quite personable as well since he noticed I was listening to Guns and Roses while he was installing the lock and we chopped it up a bit about 90's rock and concerts hahaha.

On a separate note, I called back to commend Paul on his service since it's not as common these days and asked if they can remake car keys and remotes for cars, which they do. Dylan was not only knowledgeable and knew his stuff, but he even gave a hot tip on buying the remote from Amazon to save money and time. These guys are looking out for their customers and it truly shows.

Def some cool dudes and business in my book!!

P.S. If you haven't already, save them in your contacts or bookmark them on Yelp!!
Manoj F.
I had one working master key for my Toyota Corolla 2014. I also had 2 uncut keys which needed to be programmed and cut. Centerville Locksmith team was quick and helpful. They charged reasonably as compared to other locksmiths and their service & workmanship was up to the mark.

I will definitely give Centerville any future business (and references) since they are dependable, they provide good quality workmanship and they charge reasonably.
Sumit S.
Horrible service. I lost my Kawasaki key, I ordered new blank key from dealership and waited for 3 weeks for it to arrive. Took it to Centerville and the guy made the key wrong way. It didn't worked and wasted my $40 blank key. Had to wait another 3 weeks and got it done from Parker Security & Locksmith Service.
Linda H.
The staff here are very professional and courteous. Someone vandalized my parents car by jacking the driver front door keyhole. When I called they walked me through all my options. They suggested I come in to have them take a look at the car. They ended up replacing the lock for us and grinding us a new key as our original key was worn out.
Nui E.
Bought a door lock from recyclers which did not come with a key. Needed locksmith to rekey lock to use original ignition key. Left lock & key with Centerville. They completed the task quickly and under what was originally quoted. Great service!
Lindy B.
I was attempting to get our slider door lock fixed and upon calling the man was very nice but made it sound like this would be a complicated job. He asked for photos to be emailed and he would call me back. After not hearing for 2 hours, I called, talked to another man that didn't know about my issue but assured me that they did get my email and would have the first man call me back. I never heard back. When my husband called back the next day, they didn't seem eager for our business so we took it elsewhere.
Raymond L.
Have them cut my key for my Lexus SUV and I am very happy with the result.  Their customer service was good and their price was good.  The other option for me is to ask the car dealer to do it but I feel it would cost a lot more.  I am glad to have such a locksmiths store not too far away from where I live :-)
Andrew L.
Awesome job on getting key made from vehicle manufacturer code.  Great set of guys with most excellent service.  Just remember, if you have a key cut from a code, it has to work itself in and the wonderful people at Centerville will smooth the cuts so that it works perfectly!
Matt A.
Gave me phone advice to fix my front door. Cost me $4 for a drill bit to get it done myself. It was a simple fix I just couldn't figure out on my own. I really appreciated their advice and they let me know they could come out if I couldn't fix it.
Dan N.
I needed a spare key for my 2008 Lexus RX350,
Called this place and they say they have the key with cut and program for $180 plus tax, that save me over $100 compare to Lexus Dealerships.
So I stopped by and get it done in less than 30min. He spent extra time try to program the key I got from EBay and it didn't work. If you lost your key and need a new key for newer car, save time and headache go straight to this place. I would go back if I ever need car key.
Johnny P.
Eric was excellent! Very professional, efficient, and fast. Dealership wanted $177 for cutting and programming the key and needed an appointment, plus an extra day to send the key out to be cut. I just drove up to Centerville Locksmith and Eric was able to cut and program a new 2013 Prius key fob in approximately 20 minutes. In the end, he only charged me $75.
Can't say enough good things about them. Very host and professional.
Jerry S.
Actually haven't had a chance to try out the keys because they are for doors yet to be installed.  I did like the quick service, the friendly atmosphere and the cost was reasonable for the work done.  I had two locks re-keyed and several keys made.
Kyle K.
Came in here to get a copy of a hard-to-find key. They had the one I needed and hundreds more.

I'm a happy customer
Steve M.
I needed a privacy lock changed at my business, gave them a call and spoke with Paul , I let him know I needed a commercial grade set. He said no problem! came out gave me a free estimate ! After the work was done , I noticed there was some issues with the lock. Gave Paul a call and he came right out and fixed the problem. These guys are my go to locksmiths from now on! I thought this was too small of a job , but they treated me like I was replacing all the locks in the whole complex. Give them a call! You won't be disappointed!
Michael L.
Needed to get the front door lock re-keyed, brought it in, had it done with extra keys made in 10 minutes and under $20.  Great service and price.
Wilbert N.
Came in to get my spare 2002 Lexus IS300 blank key cut because my old key snapped awhile back.

$20 for cutting and I was very happy with the results. I would comeback and make business with them again if I had too. Definitely recommend to other people to come here.
Yuk S.
I give them a call to see if they are able to cut my spare lexus key. They said they are able to and will cut it for 20 dollars. I call around different store and see that this was the cheapest and closest to my house. I decided that i would have my key cut here. I came here on a Wednesday morning. It was not busy so I got helped right away. They took my key to the back to make copy. . 5 minutes later. and 20 dollars less, I was out the door with my brand new spare key.

20 dollars just for cutting the key as I already have my own key.

Can not complain. Way cheaper than dealership for cutting the key and did it really fast. I would recommended this place for people looking to cut their key.

Of course, I went home and try the key and it work. Thanks!
vishal p.
Great little family owned place. I needed to make 5 copies of a single key and everything was easy and pricing wasn't too bad either! Service was friendly and as I waited for my keys to be duplicated another gentleman came by and ensured I was being taken care of. Ive been here before and definitely will return. I was in and out in less than 5 minues. 5 stars!!

Fast and efficient!!! Technician was very knowledgeable and took the time to explain to me how to operate new lock system.
Overall great service.
Nichole M.
Shai is amazing, baller! He busted it out real quick and took the time to explain to me how the key works in the ignition
Dari T.
Shai did fast and good work.  He was very professional and understanding of my situation.  Same day service.
Blake H.
I received a quote from Shai for a commercial business door repair. He was quick to fit me in last minute at the end of the day. I really appreciated his professionalism and friendly attitude when I met with him! I would highly recommend their services to anyone in need!
Aych K.
I lost my key fob for my push start vehicle. So i called to ask about a car key fob replacement, they gave me a quote for JUST THE KEY at $280. I told them I needed it to be programmed to my car otherwise the key is useless, obviously, and they guy took about 15 minutes to call me back with an estimate of $800..... Thats  $300 more than going straight to the dealership. He was prompt to call me back and seemed generally helpful but his prices are sky high. literally called 12 locksmiths and this was the most ridiculous quote ive ever heard in my life. I went with B & B Locksmiths. they service the bay area and the guy was able to meet me within the hour at my car location, reprogrammed my car with a new key for $250.
John F.
Can't really rate the quality of work.    I wish Yelp would let me leave that space empty or NA

I called on Wednesday - broken safe, got a return call following Tuesday, "I was out of town"  (and the dog ate my homework or hid my cell phone.)

On the only call we ever had, he asked me to text a few pictures of the safe, so I did.

Ten days later, I called another company, their yellow truck pulled up the following day.  David had the Sentry Fire Safe open (drilled) in 20 minutes.  

He was friendly during the 120 seconds we talked.

Gapps N.
Marko is very busy but he was AAA recommended and was very professional. He did set up a time and stick to it. There was a communication gap on pricing between what he said and did not say and what we understood. He did clarify the issue on arrival and was willing to split the difference citing shared responsibility for the issue. I was fine with it. It was a good decision as he was extremely good at his job and addressed the problem and made some recommendations. On the job he is very friendly and advices you on any questions or queries that you may have. I would use him again and would definitely recommend him for other lock and door related jobs as well.

The problem with double front doors is that they can occasionally get out of alignment and stop latching correctly leaving your front door open to anyone if your not aware.  One call to door expert, Marko, at All Locks and Doors in Livermore is all it took to resolve the issue.  He was in the field working but he immediately had his administrative person e-mail me to schedule an appointment.  I called her and we quickly found an opening in Marko's schedule that we could accommodate.  All Locks & Doors again provided me with excellent customer service, diagnosed the issue and shimmed the top of the right door to re-align the latch & lock properly.  It also eliminated a gap that we had observed between the bottom of the door rubber and the bottom door jam.  All Locks & Doors again has provided us with excellent customer service and a very professional job which resolved our door issue.

Marko at All Locks & Doors is by far one of the best individuals our company has ever hired to do work for us. He's professional, honest and does top notch work at a reasonable price. He installed a keyless entry system for our office, adjusted doors to perfection and changed out many locks and door handles. He takes his time to explain each job and doesn't disappear when the job is done. He makes sure to check up on us every now and then to make sure everything is working properly. My daughter had the pleasure of using him when she got locked out of her car one stormy day. She called to tell me what happened and that a very nice locksmith showed up and helped her get quickly into her car. She kept raving about him and how nice and helpful he was. I then realized she was talking about Marko at All Locks & Doors :). So nice to have found such a nice, dependable and honest business owner! Look no further and call Marko at All Locks and Doors for all your door and lock needs. You'll be happy you did.
Mandy T.
Marko is a total professional! Showed up and programmed a new FOB for my vehicle as well as cutting a new key for the lock in 15 minutes, start to finish. Very happy!
Jessica L.
I usually don't write things on Yelp. But Marko is such wonderful person and professional. He came to get our new car key in 30 minutes and make us another key. Great service!
Lauren L.
I am extremely happy with my experience getting a car key duplicated from Marko with All Locks And Doors!

Marko picked up my call right away and met me in Livermore within an hour. He already had the right sized blank key in stock & was able to duplicate my key in less than 10 minutes. He was very time -efficient, friendly and professional! Marko was able to make a spare key for my Honda for an excellent price. He double checked to make sure it worked & was able to take payment on my debit card.

I called several locksmith shops and visited the big stores in Livermore (Orchard, Walmart, Lowes) and none of them could duplicate my 2004 car key because of the type of key it is. All Locks and Doors seems to be the only place to get these ridged/indented keys copied in Livermore quickly & easily! I will definitely call Marko for all locksmith jobs I need!
Kristin R.
Marko was GREAT!  We needed our house rekeyed and I called at noon and he was here at 4:00 like I asked. He was extremely nice and did a fabulous job. We'd use his services again and recommend him to our friends.
Mark H.
My business needed a new commercial grade lock, but I couldn't find one that would fit.  I'm not really good with door hardware so I had to explain over the phone what I was dealing with. Marco knew exactly what I was talking about and found a replacement part right away, called me with updates and made arrangements to get me the hardware right away.   Will definitely use him again for my door and hardware needs.
Judie L.
The lock on my front door stopped working 80% of the time. It was getting really annoying to always go through the back or garage.  A friend recommended Marco at All Locks and Doors so I called him first.  He came out within 24 hours and assessed my door lock.  It was the "builder special" handle and I didn't want the same thing. Marco took the measurements and photos and told me he would call me within the next day or two with a handle that would look nice and fit where the old handle was. I really didn't think
anything would work and that we were going to have to buy a new door. He found options in various price points for me to choose from. I made the decision and when it came in he installed it immediately. His attention to detail is excellent and so his his follow through and promptness. I definitely recommend this company if you are in need of a locksmith. Marco really knows his stuff and if he doesn't he will research to get you the answers.
John G.
An absolute pleasure working with Marco, he came out to my house 20 minutes after my phone call. Did some work on five door locks for me.

The price was really good, much cheaper than a lot of other places that we called around, and the quality is great.

Marco has a great customer service and he knows he's job very well!!!

He gave me lots of great advice on how to make my home more secure...  Looking forward to do business with him again in the near future!!!

These guys are awesome. Easy to schedule over the phone. He got to me in 30 minutes. Was done changing my locks in less than 15 minutes.

Fair prices too. I was quoted double by someone else in the area.
Sara E.
Daryl was such a nice guy! He fit me in his busy schedule and helped me fix my car key... I had multiple locksmiths quote me $250 plus $25 to just come see if they could fix it... I already had the chip key made so I thought it would be a lot less.. I called Tri Valley Locksmiths and he said oh u have the key $75 bucks... so honest and a really nice company. I asked for his business card to pass on and I'll make sure I let everyone know how great of an experience i had after so many ch stress over my car not starting with out a new key! Thanks Daryl!
Jennifer S.
I called to get a quote for copying my car key. He hung up on me while I was asking a question. I will be looking somewhere else as I found that rude and disrespectful.
Dat N.
I need a new mailbox key and I emailed Tri Valley and Daryl responded very promptly with a very reasonable rate.  He called 15 minutes before he arrived and he arrived and did the work promptly and even gave me an extra key!  Great service, would definitely recommend. A+++.
Megan P.
Called Daryl on Friday last week to get my lock re keyed and came right out to help within an hour. He was very helpful and did great work. Good to know he is there at a fair price!
Claudia D.
Very friendly, excellent service and was able to help me quickly. I highly recommend him. Thanks Daryl!
Mike F.
Been dealing with Daryl for years between my rental properties and cars. I'm extremely picky on who I do business with and he's the best.
Shiva A.
Helped us out with a jammed front door lock on a short notice. Also, Were told upfront, just by looking at the picture, whether lock could be repaired or needed to be replaced. Friendly and efficient.
Eric W.
Daryl was a great guy.  He was there on time and re-keyed all the locks I needed done and even fixed the door knob that was not operating correctly.   I would definitly recommend him to anyone in need
Michael K.
Quick and great service!
Daryl cut and programmed my chipped auto-key.
Linda O.
Daryl took my call and set an appointment right away.  He arrived on time as promised.  He was friendly, and professional.  We had just moved into a commercial building, and we did not have the keys to a locked closet and to some of the internal doors.  He unlocked the closet and re-keyed the doors.  He worked very quickly, and his prices were very reasonable.  I would highly recommend him, and will use him again if needed.  

Thanks Daryl!
Bob F.
We couldn't be more pleased.  My daughter required programming for her car key, we went online and searched for a company to do this (advice don't you are not sending your info to a locksmith but rather a company who then sends it along to a locksmith) called a couple and were told that they could not guarantee that their programming would work and they may have to cut a new key ($$$$$ kept adding up) and that even if they could not complete the work we would be charged full amount (and they couldn't tell us what the full amount was).  Started searching Yelp, did not call around for pricing, called around to see if anyone would be honest with us, Daryl called back, set up an appointment for the same day (today June 12), best of all he gave us a price for the service call, told us he was not sure it would work but if it didn't he would only charge us a minimal amount.  He came out today programmed the key(s) and the car is now working great, even explained to me how to know if the key was programmed, in addition to everything else he was just a nice genuine guy.  
Anytime in the future that we require a locksmith of any type, TV Locksmiths (Daryl) will be our first call.
Pamela W.
We run into an emergency last Fri late afternoon when the lock of our office fell apart.  I called a couple other locksmiths but they were not available.  We were so grateful when Gabe answered our call and said he would be there in 30 min.  20 mintues later, Gabe arrived and got our lock repaired in 10 minutes.  Gabe was very friendly and profressional and seemed very knowledgeable when he repaired the lock while explaining to be what the issue was.  We couldn't be more thrilled with our experience and would highly recommend them!
Chris F.
I needed to get a lock changed quickly, and I hopped onto Yelp to look for a good locksmith.  Saw Darryl's good reviews and gave him a call at 3pm on a Friday.  He answered immediately and was I surprised when he said he could come over in an hour.

Darryl was friendly and informative and finished the job in about 10 minutes.  His pricing was reasonable and I was very happy with the work he did.  Would definitely use him again if the need arises.
Jack M.
Great service, responsive and accommodating and good problem solver. Used them twice...hopefully won't need them again haha, but if I need another locksmith / definitely will use Tri Valley.
Ronnie B.
He texted apporoximate time he expected to be here and then arrived on time. Daryl identified the problem quickly then replaced the part. Cost was as expected. Thanks for prompt, professional and courteous service.
Abhijeet K.
Not even interested in setting up an appointment to do a job.  I called in asking for a key cutting for my motorcycle, and he said " Now is not a good time. Maybe try me later" !!!!  If I was the business owner, I would at least take down the customer's phone number and promise to call as soon as possible to set up an appointment.  Ugh.
Sharon M.
Tri-Valley Locksmith was responsive, professional, efficient, and reasonably priced. The work to replace my front door handle set was done very well and quickly. I'm happy and satisfied!
Kevin P.
Daryl did a great job for me today, very quickly, and it was a great value.  He is polite, professional, and accommodated my need for a quick fix.
Timothy E.
Great service, prompt and courteous. I use Tri-Valley locksmith for all my lock needs. Prices are reasonable and I trust the service. Thank you!

Ordered a safe that they had on their website and they charged my CC immediately. A week later they emailed me saying they no longer carried that item. A week wasted and a week that they had my money.
Mark S.
My AMSEC safe is more than 10 years old.  A  problem occurred with the electric lock.  This, it turns out, was self-inflected, so please do not think poorly of AMSEC safes.  I called the safe company I bought it from and after sending them photos with a description of the problem, they recommended Security Safe.

Security Safe was very responsive, calling me back within a few minutes after my phone call and sending photos.  They arranged for a repairman to come out the next day "in the afternoon."  The repairman, Chris, called me at about 11am, asked if he could come over "now," said he would arrive within 30 minutes and he arrived in 20 minutes.

A wire was broken from the battery to the locking mechanism.  Although he offered to repair the wire, I asked about other options as we have a second AMSEC safe purchased just 2 years ago and I like that lock better.  Chris explained that the safe needing repair could not accept the other type of lock, but he did give me 2 other options, recommending the less expensive of the two.  I opted to go with his recommendation.  

Chris finished the installation, explanation of how the lock works, and all the billing paperwork, and left by 11:50 AM.

I was very pleased with the prompt response of each person I interacted with at Security Safe, and their professionalism.  It could not have been better!
andrew a.
Friendly service throughout the staff. Daniel was my sales associate who showed me a variety of safes based on what I was looking for. Daniel gave me a great deal with excellent service. I definitely recommend Daniel to all my friends and family!
Trevar M.
Daniel was super helpful and honest. Great experience. I'll certainly do business with Security Safe again when the need arises.
Crystal R.
Security Safe sells defective products and doesn't cover them under warranty.  We purchased a high end commercial TRTL30x6 with Safe Wizard lock. In less than a year, both the lock and handle on the safe failed.  Security Safe refused to cover either issue under its alleged 1 yr warranty. We had to pay emergency repair charges to another locksmith for the handle when it failed before a busy weekend and Security Safe didn't pick up their phone or provide emergency contact info. When offered a chance to make it right, Gary - the owner - told us that he didn't see anything wrong with their approach and he was fine to forego our future business. Of the 5 star reviews below, we know that one was written by an employee so I'm not sure the rest can be trusted.
Michael R.
What a quality place this is. I'm into security and needed a high quality safe that would fit in a tight spot. These guys hooked me up with one from American Security that I just love. The tricky part was the delivery since it had to go down a set of stairs. But the guys brought a motorized dolly, got it set in place and then bolted it to the floor.

There were a couple of disconnects that we ultimately worked out. So, overall, a very good experience. I've also recommended this place to my father-in-law who is shopping for a safe. Good price, quality products and excellent delivery and installation.
Derek L.
We bought a use safe and the price we paid for what we got was the best deal out there.  The delivery team was excellent.  They took there time and was very professional.  They did not touch a wall or even a door.  I would recommend them to anyone that is looking for a safe.
K O.
I just purchased an AMSEC home safe from them at a price lower than what I found online.  Plus their delivery service is stop notch.  Both the Asian fellow and his Mexican partner were excellent,  going the extra mile to make sure it was securely installed just right, at a price almost half that of white glove delivery by the online stores. I highly recommend this business.  The quality of safes they sell is  much better than that from Costco  or the other big box stores.  YouTube Sentry Safe break in.
I went to buy a safe and their salesman Tom was of no help. I explained several times I wanted a small safe for some personal items and he kept trying to sell me a huge 500 pound $1,500+ safe. No matter what I said, he kept saying that all his small safes were junk and that I had to buy a big one. He also said, and I quote "Safe technology hasn't changed in 300 years." - I guess they had electronic safes with push-buttons back in the 1700's. He basically talked me out of buying anything from him.

Overall, it was an odd experience and I went over to Oakland and found a nice safe for about $800.00 by AMSEC which has a great reputation for quality.
Casey L.
We called them to replace a lock.  They did an awesome job.  They were here on time and with a great attitude.  We will definitely call them if we need help again :)
R R.
I came across Security Safe to help install a safe I bought from another company. Their installation team was very patient in helping to quote a price and easy to work with when the date had to be changed because the safe hadn't arrived from the other company. Their office manager was very efficient and prompt in providing a certificate of insurance to show all the insurance coverage they had in case anything went wrong. I had obtained quotes from a few other installers in a 30 mile radius and their's was the most reasonable. The peace of mind from working with this classy team was priceless.
M W.
I've had two dealings with Security Safe over the last 4 years.

They did a move for me back in 2008.  The technicians who pulled it off were professionals who made it look easy (though I know it's really isn't - it was a 4000 lb safe).

I just purchased a safe from them.  I couldn't be happier with both the sales support I received along with the delivery/installation process.  They came equipped with all the right tools and were able to handle what I consider a challenging move.

Based upon my experiences, I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them.
Daniel y.
I went by to purchase a safe and i was surprised to see how may different types of safes they had. They have several different type of gun safes, jewelery safes, and home safes. I was greeted as soon as i walked in and was given a great price on the safe i purchased. They delivered and installed my safe quickly and professionally. I also found out they build vaults in home.  I would definitely recommend everyone who is interested in a safe to go by and take a look.

5 star service. 5 star people. Highly reccomend Rex key and security. I lost the one and only key to my hyundai. The dealership reffered me to these guys and warned me that it can be a long and stressfull process. Less than 1 hour later I have 2 new keys and I get to go home after a very long day at work. THANK YOU
Genuwine H.
I take my reviews on Yelp very seriously. It is hard to find people of quality you can trust to come into your home and work on your locks.  I recommend​ them without hesitation.

Tim the manager and Conan the locksmith, who came to my home, get my VOTE!

They are honest, kind and competent.  Conan cares deeply about the quality​ of work he performs.  His father was a locksmith and he has a high regard for the trade.

Thanks again, ​Conan and Tim.
Mane C.
Excellent service with a dash of humor.

I've been losing keys and locking myself out for years now!! And every time I do, I come to Rex Key to get a quick copy without breaking the bank. The service here is unbeatable -- fast, efficient, inexpensive, and they've got jokes! Gotta admire the humor and pick-me-up when you're probably visiting because you've locked yourself out for the 3rd time this month. Thanks Rex!!
Jeff A.
Rex Key and Brian are 5 Stars for service, integrity and responsiveness.

However, my review goes beyond the excellent service. My daughter was locked out of her apt due to a faulty night latch. The apartment complex who uses a third party vendor to manage their properties could not reach anyone to help her. We spent hours on the phone with the complex explaining that this issue was a faulty lock and the complex never issued a key (illegal). My daughter had brought this to management's attention multiple times and they never resolved it. So now my daughter is locked out, cold and without help from the complex at 10 PM and I am hundreds of miles away. My daughter called a few locksmiths who quoted abusive service fees just to come out. Rex was reasonable. My daughter and I did a three way call and spoke to Brian. As soon as he heard that I am a father trying to help my daughter who is in distress, he immediately came to her rescue. Not only was Brian there quickly, and resolved the issue quickly, he spent the time to educate my daughter about the Berkeley area and provided suggestions for her safety. This goes far beyond any expectation of service. As a father I can not tell you how much I greatly appreciate someone looking out for my little girl.

Being involved with in the parents organization at CAL, I highly recommend Rex Key and Brian to all Berkeley student families.

Fast and effective help. Good folks at the counter. Good price. Perfect set of keys in minutes. What more do you want from a locksmith? Back massage? Thanks Rex.
Roots R.
I actually enjoy coming here.  My problems get solved quickly and with a healthy dose of humor.
Jim S.
I would rate Rex Key an Locksmith services in Berkeley, Ca a 5 star all day. Dan the locksmith provided excellent customer service and was able to unlock trunk of my vehicle that had my work papers and stuff today 10/30/17. Dan gave me sound advice on the problem and what might fix the problem in the future since it appear to be problem with motor rod piece.
MorePeas S.
I called about a door that doesn't shut properly. I scheduled a house call today and someone called beforehand and arrived well within the pre-agreed two hour time window. Richard came in and diagnosed the issue within two minutes--he told me the issue wasn't the door knob but that the door itself needed to be trimmed and rehung (something we'd need a carpenter for). He didn't charge me a dime for the the helpful advice. I will definitely call them again for future key and lock issues -- honest and reliable!
L C.
I enjoy patronizing local businesses with a strong focus on a particular service or product, and Rex Key is an excellent example of this!

I ran in needing a copy of a key for a U-shaped bike lock and they made it for me instantly.  I'll be back for whatever key or locksmith needs I may have in the future.

Knowledgeable, fast and very friendly.  

Highly recommended.
Nola B.
Went in today to have an old metal suitcase, filled with cameras and equipment, opened. I lost the keys sometime ago. I was really nervous bringing it anywhere since it means the world to me and I wasn't sure how delicately they could do it. They got into it quickly and were able to provide me with two keys which was way beyond my expectations. Thank you so much guys!!!!! You're awesome!
Kathy D.
I had a commercial door lock put in by Rex Key seven years ago. They were excellent, completely different from the "other" company, that I won't name. Now the battery died. I called them and they talked us through changing it. No charge! Thank you Rex Key!
L. P.
These guys are great.  Had to replace a smart auto key and they did it at the least cost, quickly, and professionally.  I've been telling people about them because everyone knows how expensive smart keys are to replace.
Erica B.
TLDR: bait & switch, overpriced, and couldn't do the job.

Stopped by near closing, asked how much to duplicate a key for a Dodge Caravan & make a remote keyless entry fob, was quoted "maximum $100", but since they were closing soon, to come back the next day. I asked if they had the expensive programming tool needed, or an emulator of it. (Couldn't remember the name, but it's the DRBIII). They laughlingly informed me they had a much better tool and it would work, and would take about an hour. No problemo.

Came back the next day, now it's MINIMUM $100, and just for the key, and not sure they can do the fob, but it'll be additional charge if they can. They assured me the dealer is much, much more expensive. Two hours later, they managed to get the key programmed but can't do the RKE and I am out $100.

It turns out the dealer (McKevitt, on Shattuck) has a flat fee of $90 for programming and would have done all the keys and fobs for $90 in less than 30 minutes.

They are definitely suave and charming, and use this to get more money out of you and to cover their inabilities. I heard them flatter a woman, saying maybe it was her fault that some cut keys didn't work because her attractiveness distracted the employee that cut them. They laugh and joke, which is great until they make fun of you if you think you have any knowledge on the subject at hand and then they screw you over.
Jesse G.
Dave came on time, rekeyed 7 locks, made copies and explained everything I wanted explained! Would and def will use Rex key in the future.


Jerrod W.
I'd just bought a new house and needed all the locks changed, so I called Rex's.

They came out on time.  The tech (Conan, I think, I didn't write down his name at the time) did a fantastic job.  Before he worked on them, all the locks were a bit stiff and you had to wiggle the keys to make it work.  The house had 9 different keys. Afterwards, all the locks except the dead bolt were on the same key.  All worked smoothly and flawlessly.  

The tech who came out was exceptionally polite, very knowledgeable, and clearly very skilled.  The pricing was clear and exactly in line with was quoted to me over the phone.

The tech mentioned that the shop sold padlocks that could be keyed to match the locks.  So I went over to the shop and got a pair for the gates leading to the backyard. I mentioned to the person working the counter that I'd just had my house rekeyed and he threw in the rekeying of the padlocks to match the house key for free.  While I was in there, I got to watch them interact with a number of other customers.  And the entire team seemed very customer oriented.

Had to make a spare key and was given a really affordable price and was in and out in less than 10 minutes!

A complete, no frills- gets the job done quickly without the hassle locksmith. A definite recommend and Rex's has yet to let me down with their service. If you have issues or need help with your keys come here!

I was recommended to come here by several of my colleagues who also in the past have had issues with their keys/locks or have needed copies of their keys quickly without a hassle. By far, Rex's is their favorite default location for all of their lock/key needs.

The entire team here is professional, cheerful, quick- and super helpful! I mean I don't really have much else to say other than they do what they do well, with a smile on their face.

I've gotten my keys copied here multiple times over and over again. I remember for my old apartment, I had issues with other locksmiths trying to replicate my keys (because it apparently didn't fit the normal mold to copy keys in, it was one of those DO NOT COPY KEYS, but I digressed bc my roommate lost his only pair and he was going to be in deep trouble if he didn't have a duplicate ASAP), and Rex's really came through and saved the day.

Honestly I've never spent more than 5-10 minutes in Rex's; It's a quick in and out and you've been helped. Their service is incredibly fast, and the workers there are cheery and quite jovial as they help you out.

It's also priced really reasonably and it's not too bad. Definitely my default in Berkeley if I ever need help with any of my lock/key needs.

Rex's gets a Solid 5 from me. I mean it's a no frills, cuts to the chase and gets it done type of deal here. I have yet to personally find a negative thing to report from here. Solid 2 thumbs up.
Stef C.
This place is really the best. If you need copies of keys or any locksmith service, I highly recommend this place. Came in today got quick and super friendly service, was in and out in less than 10 minutes. The guys that work there are so nice and friendly. I will definitely use them for any of my key/locksmith needs!
Britt T.
Super cheerful and nice staff. The only place that can cut a unique key for me - no regular hardware store can cut it. They have at least 10 special key machines so they can cut almost any key!
Karen Z.
Got a duplicate for my car key.. for only $5 dlrs - Great customer service and fast!!!! Will come back for sure!!!

I contacted them to get new locks installed at my house that was newly remodeled.  They were very responsive and actually had their tech call me back. We discussed what I wanted and he told me to just let them know when the doors were installed and they would come install the locks.  2 days later the door was installed, I called as requested and was told by the scheduler they couldn't do it until the next day. I re-arranged multiple meetings to accommodate the appointment and 50 minutes before the scheduled appointment she Called and said they couldn't make it and had to reschedule even though I already informed her I was going out of town the next day. She said "then I can't help you and there is no manager for you to speak to. " Terrible business model and awful customer service.. it sounds like if you need them to come unlock something, they will help you if they are available but do not expect them to show up if you make an appointment.

I was about to go home for the night and my office door lock was not locking up, the key was spinning round and round. I thought I was going to need a new lock installed. I couldn't leave my office unlocked all night, so of course I start looking up who does commercial locksmith in Menlo Park. I was worried anywhere I might call would have a extra fee for hiring emergency locksmiths late at night. But then I called Menlo park locksmith pros.

I actually spoke with the owner who was very nice, he told me it was no problem sending out his tech and promised me there was no emergency locksmith additional fee. His guy arrived 20 minutes or less like they said. Thankfully he was able to actually fix the lock itself. The price was very fair.

I was just so relieved to be able to lock up and go home with peace of mind.

After the couple of days moved in Menlo Park my spouse and I were got locked out of our house but not your typical locked out of house situation per say. We were locked out on our balcony which is attached to our house. When we tried to go back inside it was clear something was broken with the sliding door lock so we were stuck.

We were searching on our phones and calling around for a locksmith that does home services because most of the "mom and pop shops" that were coming up under keys & locksmiths were saying to call a mobile locksmith service. So we did. Some others were 100$ just to come out then money on top.

Thankfully I found this place and they were 19$ to come out so I figured that would be the better option. The tech arrived, he called us, he had to open our front door then come into our home which we navigated him through to find us. He introduced himself through the window and after looking at the lock he said he knew what was wrong and he would have us back inside in no time.

He gave us the pricing before starting which was very reasonable so we went ahead. He did an adjustment to the lock that allowed him to open he door to let us in. Then he finished fixing the lock. He cleaned up after himself then made sure to show us what he fixed and have us test it before leaving.

I honestly couldn't have asked for better locksmith service in such a stressful situation.

I have actually used Menlo Park Locksmith Pros before in the past and today I used them again.There was this detail I had engraved in my mind from the first time I called them out to replace my car key the previous time.

Their tech had stapled their business card on my invoice and then I remember him writing down my "key code" on my invoice and explaining to me in detail that saving that "key code" would make replacing my car key cheaper in the future.

So, you can bet I saved that invoice. Today I couldn't find my car key so I found my invoice from them and called them up.

My tech actually remembered me from before was able to come out pretty quick. He came over and used the key code he had saved prior to make the new key and this time it was faster and cheaper to make the key again. Just like he said before. I'm glad I kept that key code because it was a $80 saving, & hey, I'll take what I can get.

They seem to really care about their clientele so a big 5 stars in my book.

My husband and I went out to dinner and when we returned back to our car the keys were no where to be found. Not in my purse, not in the restaurant, we even retraced our steps but to no avail. We were pretty panicked to say the least. We stood next to the car fearing someone would try to take it.

We found these guys and they actually said they could replace the key and delete our old car key which somewhat calmed our fears for the meantime.

They showed up about 25 minutes after speaking with them. The tech was in a uniform shirt & newer cargo van with all this equipment inside, it was more professional than we imagined. We were actually really impressed. The guy made the type of remote key we had before and we were on our way.

Overall a great experience using them for car key making service.
Simba M.
We had the same exact issue as other person. The woman on the phone blatantly misquoted us. She clearly said the cost would be 19.99 dollars to have them come out and 35 dollars to take care of the lock. There was no information that 35 was the starting price (which is what they said after we called them back). When the locksmith arrived they wanted to charge us the 19.99 plus 169. We had to spend about an hour going back and forth between the technician, the company, and ourselves. After arguing with them again and again they ended up doing it for 100 dollars but they had to drill out the lock (which will add cost to fix door). The aggivation of dealing with them is not worth it. This company is not to be trusted.
Neha G.
These guys were fantastic. My son locked me out of our bedroom at 7pm, and these folks showed up 15 minutes later to let me back in. They were on time, got the job done quickly, were very clear about their charges upfront, and even made me a couple of extra keys on the way out the door. I'd call them again in a heartbeat, though I'm hoping it won't happen again!

I locked myself out of my apartment on a Sunday (sad face).

Called A1 & someone answered immediately and was at my place in 45 minutes--as promised. The locksmith was friendly and professional and moved fast. Turns out he had to drill the lock, as my previous lock was new and couldn't be picked. Throughout, he explained the cost to me and gave me options. I decided to have him replace the lock completely, as I am not very handy. The whole thing was pretty expensive, but I knew it would be, as it was Sunday morning & overtime rates kick in. Many services aren't even open on Sunday. I feel like A1 was upfront with me about their cost. If you want efficiency, skill, and professionalism, you get what you pay for. I definitely recommend this locksmith.
Will G.
I really don't recommend this terrible service to anyone.  

Forgot the key inside my house and called this service for help. But he didn't help anything, either opening the front door or the back door. Highly doubt his professional skills.

Even worse, he charged me $120 for just coming here! Tried to argue with him reasonably, but he didn't listen at all. I had no way, but paid to let him leave.

I usually don't leave bad reviews. But he really made me feel upset.
Masami Y.
Don't call this place & ask Steve to replace your keys. He'll rip you off. I trusted the reputation here & saying all good about him.  I called him on Friday & set appointment on  Monday 7pm since service hours is till 9pm. He called on Monday 7pm said that he'll charge me overtime if I insist him to do that time. So I rearrange to next day, around 11:30am.  But he showed up 2:30pm, without any apologies. He did jobs & had my credit card #. Next day, invoice & charged notice came. He charged $175 for rekeyed x 5, $16 for copies x4, $150 for one hour labor. On top of that, he charged me $80 for " Service call".  What is service call??? Then add up to $421 plus sales tax $40. Total $461. I emailed & called him for inquiries without response. People shouldn't treat others in this way. Be careful with this guy.
John M.
Steve at A1 locksmith provided us with good prompt service the morning the lock on our Store Front door decided to stop working...
Thank you Steve...
Carb Q.
Steve was the best locksmith I have had to call by far, and because of my job I've had to call many.  He got to the house I manage quickly and opened 3 closet doors so fast it amazed me!  I've had other locksmiths take  45 minutes just to open one door.
Charlotte C.
Thanks goodness for A1 Locksmith! They were open on Sunday when others weren't and they arrived within the hour to help unlock our front door. Our door is also quite tricky as the lock is very old, but Steve still managed to get us in without damaging/drilling the lock. Thanks for the great work :)
Suren S.
Steve was very helpful, allowing me to complete the task I was assigned by cutting a pad lock that I did not have keys for. Definitely recommend.
Michael S.
If you lock yourself out of your car in the San Mateo area definitely call this locksmith. He came out when he said he would, got my truck open in a couple minutes and the price was fair. All of this with good customer service skills.
Nicole B.
Steve has helped me probably too many times to count. A Yelp review is long overdue for him. When I was 18, locked my keys in my car, and had to be in class within an hour, Steve came to my rescue, and he had everything with his since he has a mobile van too. He helped me re-key my house after a break in, and even helped re-mount the doorbell that had been knocked out of the wall. Two thumbs up! Only locksmith in the bay you need to know.
Andy C.
We have an office in Burlingame and one of our doors was accidentally locked by the janitors during the night. Guess what? There was no key available and we couldn't help our customers! I called and spoke with Steve, the owner of A-1 and after explaining our predicament he was kind enough to prioritize us first and come right out.

Steve had the door open in literally less than three minutes. No damage to the door, no need to replace the lock. Of course he used tools that I would have no access to and frankly would not have even known existed! I can't thank him enough for prioritizing our situation first, he even accepts payments by Square with was very convenient for our business needs.

Just the fact that Steve is savvy enough to squeeze in an easy job before moving on to set appointments earned three stars in my book. His demeanor and kind attitude earned him the other two.

Definitely recommend.
Alexandra D.
Review is on the following: customer service, speed of service, price of service, overall experience

Customer Service: I called to request pricing, but did not leave a message after a few rings. I received a call back within 2 minutes asking if I had any questions... that has never happened! Furthermore, Steve (owner) drove to me.. I did not know he could do that, but he does, and he was able to waive the fee as it was on his way.. that was extremely generous of him!

Speed of Service: Upon speaking with Steve, he was able to come by the office, check out the keys needing to be copied and provide an estimate all WITHIN 10 minutes.. all of this; I did not have to leave the office building!

Price of Service: Fair pricing for high-security key replacement

Experience: GREAT! If I EVER need keys, I am going here!
Tihani C.
Got locked out of my car after class and he came over pretty quickly. We spent the first 5 or so min trying to get into the passenger door when I realized that the only door with an electric lock (was trying to open the window switch) was the drivers side haha... He was pretty chill about it.
Peter M.
Steve responded immediately to our being locked out. He replaced the lock cylinder matched it to the other door lock and saved us a heap of trouble. Highly recommended.
Lerry J.
I just bought a house and asked Steve with A-1 Locksmith to make a house call to change out all the locks.

Steve was perfectly punctual, arriving at our designated time. We reviewed my needs. He fulfilled them exactly as requested. He also assisted in repairing some damage to one of my doors.

Anytime someone comes out to make a housecall for any service, you expect to pay a premium. The service was not cheap, but it was more than worth it.

Steve decided to take things to the next level. While he was there, without me asking, he helped out by helping reset the dead garage door and also helped do some basic rewiring of some poorly laid cable from the previous owner.

All in all, a perfect experience. I will be using Steve for any of my future locksmith needs. And maybe even garage door needs!
Elizabeth E.
I locked myself out of my house and A-1 provided speedy, helpful service on a Saturday morning!  Price was comparable to other local locksmiths.
James D.
A-1 Locksmith in Burlingame charged me $200 to change the lock on my front door.  The service was fine but their rates are 2x what you can get elsewhere.  I complained to the owner and after some haggling he agreed to partially reduce the service fee.  The refund check was promised but never mailed - even after repeated attempts by me to get in touch with them again.
Maribel S.
I locked myself out of my apartment on a Saturday at 11am, thankfully I had my smartphone with me so I could google for a locksmith. The first hit on Google for "Locksmith Burlingame" is A 1-Locksmith, so naturally I called them. I asked for a price and they said $150!! Do note, I have never used a locksmith before so I have no idea how much unlocking an apartment door should cost. I don't know if it was because it was a Saturday, but surely $150 is wayyyy too much to pay. I did not use their services (actually got it done for $79 with a diff company), and I do not intend to in the future for the outrageous prices they are charging.

A J.
Simply amazing place. This is the Promised Land of locksmiths.

I called them because we needed to swap out the cylinder to our front door since it was made in China and the key associated with the cylinder is an obscure double laser cut thing that can't be replicated in the United States. Believe me, we've tried. And we were down to three keys so we needed to take action.

I spoke to Mikey on the phone. He asked for pictures which I sent. We then spoke again and he said Denise was the best person to help me because she is their all-knowing purchasing guru. So I took out the cylinder myself and took it to their shop. Denise ordered me a new one with a normal North American key. She said it would take a week and it arrived in two days. All we paid for was the cylinder and a few keys. No labour to pay for since they suggested I bring it myself. Most locksmiths would try and milk me for a site visit.

Now we can make copies easily whenever we want.
Ms. L.
These guys were GREAT! Fast, reliable, friendly on the phone, and a super nice guy that came to the house today. My door was tricky but he was really good at problem solving. He was also very neat, and wiped up all the excess dirt and grease, which I appreciated. Very affordable also. Thanks everyone!
Tingting T.
I had a very bad experience with A-A lock. The technician came and we discussed what needs to be done, when I asked for estimation of everything, he gave me some numbers but did not mention labor fee at all. After he was done, he charged me an additional labor fee more than 100. I called their office to complain and they just let me leave a voice message and nobody following up.
Bruce H.
My 89 yr old father had front door lock re-keyed. He didn't realize he didn't have cash/check to pay so he called me. AA Lock tech quotes $9 for materials and $90 service fee for total of $99. Then they emailed me invoice for $110. When I asked why the difference in price, they said because extra work they had to do (emailing invoice) to collect payment. When I asked to speak to manager, they removed extra fee. Won't do business with these guys again....
Ramsey S.
I needed to have the upper lock on my door re-keyed and was happy that I could schedule a same-day appt.  George came to do the work and he was professional, kind, and ethical.  His work is steady and reliable.  I definitely recommend! A+
mike m.
Visited AAA to get keys made for a small display case housing college treasures. I met Kris who is very personable and professional ly. Kris carefully unlocked the truck showcase and made 2 keys. If you think keys, think Kris. Kris is a lifesaver. I cannot thank Kris for stellar workmanship. Kris is a superhero!
Jason B.
I got a set of keys from here, walked across the street to grab some breakfast for 30 min and the British dude that works here tried to tow my car.

Instead of apologizing he tried to fight me. Sorry you have nothing better to do in your boring job.

Keys were fine, its not that difficult. I'll just go to a kyosk at the mall next time though.
Jennifer P.
Great service. Honest and fast. I had a very very old trunk from Japan that needed to be opened and then if possible have keys made for it. I called and explained the situation to Chris and he was strait with me that he would need to see it in store. A key replacement could be between $30-$60 dollars and to open he estimated $60.00 I brought it down and he was looking at it and said that he would give me a call to let me know what he could do. 20min later I got a call that the trunk was ready to go! Turned out that they had a key that matched this lock and they were able to open and duplicate. I went in to pick it up and not only had he made two keys for $30.00. He did not charge me the fee to open, which he clearly could have. He helped me carry the chest to and from the car as well. Overall they get a 5 star rating because of the high customer service, speed and honesty. Thanks Chris again!
Susan B.
Had my purse stolen with keys and address inside, so decided it would be best to rekey the locks.  Daniel came out within an hour, at $75 for the house call, which was higher than others I called, but he said he would use all the good parts of the old locks, so the price of rekeying 4 locks was really reasonable.  I appreciated the straight forward approach, and AA Lock have a long history of good will to uphold, so I felt very comfortable with the whole operation.  he threw in about 6 extra keys when one of them didn't work, and I had to drive to AA in MP to get it recut.
Gloria K.
Was late on a Friday afternoon and I need to repair the lock on my shop. They crew managed to shift some people around and send me some one to repair. Truly lifesavers. U are the best.
Rebecca M.
Very friendly people who were all knowledgable and ready to provide suggestions to solve my issue. Nice local feel.
Eddie L.
George was helping me to rekey three cylinders of the door locks with the same key.   Very friendly and efficient!  The charge is relatively reasonable.
Sara D.
I had an awful experience with this company. I called at 12:30 after I locked my keys in my car requesting service at 1:30 as I was running late for a meeting I couldn't miss. I was told that they would come between 1:30 and 3:30. When I called back at 1:30, I was again told that they would be there at some point in the next two hours but definitely before 3:30. They were unable to give a more specific time. As I didn't want to have to wait outside my vehicle for two hours, i called another company who was able to send someone out within 15 minutes. When I called to cancel the job with AA lock I was yelled at by the person answering the phone for calling another company.
M. R.
Were able to duplicate a very difficult key for me very quickly - have a great selection of keys, and were incredibly friendly and accommodating.
Emmett L.
Needed to get a key replacement and Chris did it in just a few minutes without a hitch unlike the guys at Ace Hardware, not that ace is any worse but I needed the key and they got it done
Rajiv D.
I had to pay a quick visit to get a key made for my son's bike lock which I couldn't get done at OSH. Not only was I impressed with the variety of keys they carried, the service was great and they made sure that I did not overspend doing something.
Renee K.
These guys are dodgy. I went in to get a replacement car key and discovered the one they would have to order would cost $180 plus $60 to program. So I ordered a replacement online for $80 and took it in for them to program.
They said they couldn't program it because it was different to my original key, and even if they could it would cost them $60 to program and $60 to cut (suddenly there's a new fee?!).
So I returned the key and went to my car dealer instead to get a new key. Cost $230 all up... but the key was exactly like the one I had ordered online!
There is no way I believe the key I ordered couldn't be programed to my car- they just didn't want to because they didn't like me not ordering through them. I would have thought they'd still be happy to get my business. They're dodgy.
I gave them a star for cutting my mailbox key that my local hardware store couldn't get right.
Lisa H.
Initially A-A was great...Had a problem with other locksmith not showing up for a job so they were able to get someone out the next day to install a mortise lock on a brand new door.  They were up front and told me approx. how much it would be and also how long it would take.
After the door was installed the locksmith told me the key cyclinder was too short so he needed to install one that would fit that was in his truck...the finish was not the same but they could order one that would match...great...then noticed an indent in the door above the lock that was just installed...Locksmith said he did not do it and said it was on the door already..
The door was brand new and this indent was not in the door before the lock was installed.
Called the company and Michael was looking into it and also ordering a new key cylinder that would match the handle...
I have called 3 times and left messages
Always being told Michael would call me back
No call backs

They have our money..
follow up is terrible.
Kaushik N.
This place is incredible and definitely made my day! Very professional and helpful! If I could I would give this place a 10 star because of Chris! He did everything he can he made the impossible POSSIBLE to make a new key for me from the broken one I brought in. He is phenomenal and goes above and beyond with his customer service and skills! Definitely coming back to make my keys here!
Mary S.
I've used this vendor for years, and a recent interaction confirms why.  A heavy duty barrel cylinder lock on an outside gate broke.  I took it in and told George that it was 25 years old and I probably needed to replace it.  He looked at it and said that would cost several hundred dollars and he could fix it for much less.  A few minutes and $8 later, I was out the door with a lock that works like new.  They do great work, and they're honest about the scope needed.  Kudos, bravo, and thanks!

Ryan F.
Really great customer service, would definitely recommend. The main office may have thought I requested a key for an earlier model of my car (which changed models mid-year so it may have been my fault for not stating the model clearly), but Julio was completely understanding and flexible when he was unable to program the ignition with a standard key due to the car being a later model. He went above and beyond to locate another key that day and met me the next day at a time that worked with my schedule. He was very transparent and conscious of price points and made sure I chose the best option.
Ruben R.
My father praises this place for their quick and excellent work at making replica keys. I finally accompanied him for the first time when we needed some extra keys for our home replacement locks. And I must say, they are professionals at what they do. Each key made costs about $2 and it only took them about ten minutes for 4 keys.

I don't recall if my father or anyone else in my family has ever needed some other type of service that they provide here, such as selling/buying car parts or selling recyclable materials, but I'm sure they excel in that as well as there were lines of people when we arrived.

Getting in and out through the gated entrance can be a bit difficult, and the parking lot is narrow in some areas, but the service makes up for it.
Frances T.
Came to my Husband to unlock our car and did it within minutes. I think the price was based off of location, so we got lucky there. Glad they were available and quick.
Afshin S.
I was referred to Pick-A-Lock by the Auto Glass individual that I was very pleased with so I trusted their referral and they lived up to the expectations.

The ignition on my Hyundai would not turn so I had contacted a previous mobile locksmith that was unable to 'bump' the car until Hyundai roadside assist came to help it get started. I had to leave the key in the car until arriving at Pick-A-Lock and then they took less than an hour to clean the ignition mechanism.

I was very pleased with their service and would recommend them especially if you are in the East Bay area. Oh and they are CASH ONLY!
Monica C.
Guys are really talented! Fast service, reasonable prices, and local. Great place to get extra keys and if ignition key problems. Thanks so much!
Jeff N.
Fast and friendly.  Dude really sprang into action and got me out of a jam while I was visiting Oakland and stupidly locked my keys in my truck.
Philip R.
They do good work on automotive locks and ignitions at reasonable prices.  They saved me from having to replace an ignition switch.
I am disappointed that they are no longer offering mobile automotive re-keying service.
Eduardo P.
I got a good deal and fast I wanted only a key made but ended up getting the locks changed to fit the ignition key I went to someone else and its was double and I would wait a few hrs but hear it was 15min

Called these guys along with a few others,Ryan answered and said he was finishing up another job and would call me in 1 hour.Out of all the company's he kept his word came out at night in the rain with a great attitude.Thanks Ryan your company is number #1 will tell all my friends in halfmoonbay about you guys.
Lee K.
I messaged Lockworks Unlimited to inquire about having 10 locks re-keyed.  Jason, the owner, responded immediately with very clear and reasonable prices and availability to service the locks the next day.  

His technicians, Alex and Alberto, re-keyed 10 locks in less than 2 hours.  All the locks work great.  Alex and Alberto took care to keep our new floors from getting dirty and were very helpful in pointing out that a new gate lock was inferior.   With their guidance, I made a quick run to the Home Depot to buy a better lockset (they also had these in stock but I was looking for a particular color).

We're now a 1-key household instead of a 7-key household.  Thank you Jason, Alex, and Alberto for fast and high quality service!!!
S C.
talk about incredible service! They were beyond fast with duplicating my car key. My car dealership would have taken 1.5 hours and these guys took 5 min?! Wow.
Sean H.
Nobody was able to make a key for my 2014 Honda VFR800. I called several dealerships all they could do was sell me the blank key and recommend some locksmiths. One of the locksmith the dealer recommend could not do my key but they referred me to Lockworks Unlimited.

I had Lockworks Unlimited make three keys for me :-)
Ana L.
Transparent and clear pricing.
Got an appointment the same day to get all my locks rekeyed, and service was efficient and very helpful.  Gave lots of great advice and insights.
Dan D.
Had Lockworks Unlimited come out to put to a mortise lock on a pocket door. Great experience all around.
Fred H.
Lockworks was recommended to me from a locksmith friend and I wanted to let others know they are truly a 5 star local business. Their front office was great at helping me find a time and Abe, the locksmith, showed up within the appointment window. I love how they can give you a 1.5 hour window so you don't have to wait at home all day.

Abe was super knowledgable, friendly, and efficient. We discussed the work to be done and then he got down to work. All in all, I think it took less than 30 min to replace a deadbolt, door knob, and re-key two other locks. There really wasn't any pressure to do other work or upsell to higher grade hardware, which I greatly appreciated.

Funny thing is, my wife and I accidentally locked ourselves out of the house after Abe left and he was nice enough to come back within 5 min, even though he was on lunch break. Within a few minutes, we had access again to the home and he did everything with a great attitude. The company could have charged us an emergency fee, but they did the work free of charge and now have a customer for life. I will be recommending them to anyone who is looking for a locksmith.
Ryan B.
Lockworks Unlimited definitely deserves a 5-star rating for their 5-star service.

RYAN, was very thorough, knowledgeable, and informative. He got here right on time, as promised. He followed up after completing the service, really appreciate that!

Today I had a new key fob programmed at Lockworks Unlimited that I had purchased from the Toyota dealer. When I bought the key fob from the dealer, they indicated I would have to set up a separate appointment for the programming, because they didn't have enough time.

The dealer quoted me $275 to program the key: Lockworks Unlimted charged $80, and did it right away, less than 10 minutes. No attitude, no high altitude pricing. We'll be back!

PS Hassett Ace Hardware on Woodside Road had recommended them.

I have a 1993 Nissan 300zx that was stolen and had it's interior damaged. I have been slowly repairing it and I recently took the car to Lockworks Unlimited to get the ignition switch replaced. I had the original key that I wanted to use for all my locks but I was advised to have the key remade with the original groves that are not worn out because the key I had was extremely worn and it didn't make sense to copy that key. I agreed and about an hour later, my broken ignition switch was removed from the steering column and replaced with a brand-new one along with newly cut 3 original Nissan keys.

Key 1: Platinum master key. Cut perfectly and works on all the locks.
Key 2: Spare key. Cut perfectly and works on all the locks.
Key 3: Valet key. Works as intended.
Key 4: Extra key that was used to re-create the original groves.

I plan on getting some work done to my driver door key cylinder in the near future and I will be returning to this place.

Great service at an affordable price. I highly recommend this place.

I needed to replace the lock on a cluster mail box for a property in the East Bay.   I had a "universal" replacement lock from Home Depot that I wanted their opinion about.  I also needed some duplicate keys for it.  He said it would probably work fine and also showed me another lock that had more options for installation.  I decided it was worth getting their's just so I didn't have to make a second trip if the HD didn't work.  He was so nice and helpful and encouraged me to come back if there was a problem.  SO GLAD I got their lock set!  It was the perfect fit and more secure than the one I'm taking back to Home Depot.  It saved me a second trip and was a far superior product.  Add to that a great experience in the shop and I'll be back for sure!  Thank you, Lockworks.

Quick work on a mailbox lock that needed replacing, at a reasonable cost. Will use them again if we need other locksmith work!

Ryan came out to our property and was right on time. He had even called 30 prior to confirm our appointment time. He was extremely friendly and went out of his way to accommodate us.
He struggled with one of the locks in the extreme heat, but persevered until the job was complete. I can't say enough good things about Ryan and Lockworks. I will definitely call you again should the need arise.
Dona A.
These guys were fantastic!  I lost the key to my interior door handle and they knew just what to do.  Great people and quick.  I'll use them for all lock related problems in the future

Two stars is the average of one excellent review when they fixed my lock on my truck for a reasonable price and good job and the very poor rating for making a key for a Master lock. On this latter the quote over the phone was $15, but the guy there was ready to charge me $22. He went down to the $15, but that was so much more than Osh's charge to make the key (a backup) for $2 or $3). I never bothered to check, but this company is way overpriced for doing simple jobs. My fault for not thinking a padlock with a number on it could have a key so easily made at your regular hardware store. LESSONS: 1) shop around, 2) especially for the easy tasks, and 3) use a locksmith when the simple solutions are not had.  Upping this to 4 stars because my last dealing with an individual was "free" on a simple task, but it all depends who is in the shop.

Last night I locked myself out of my apartment. I called Lockworks Unlimited and Ryan came out to help me get back in. He was easy to communicate with on the phone, and was out to my place very quickly in the exact amount of time he said it would take him. He had a great disposition, explained to me what he was doing when I asked out of curiosity, and did excellent quality work. Lockworks Unlimited will be my first choice from now on!

We just got a new house and needed to get our house rekeyed.  The normal locksmith my parents uses didn't do a good job rekeying the lock and thus, the lock fell apart.  Since this occurred after hours, we had to make an emergency call to Lockworks Unlimited.  They sent Ryan out who took a look at our lock and was very thorough in fixing our lock and explaining to us how a lock worked and why the previous person didn't do it correctly.

I'm definitely going to use this company again for any and all of my locksmithing needs.
Agnes And Carlo P.
Fast and friendly service. I called Ryan and he gave me a cheaper price than the 3 other shops over the phone to duplicate a truck key. In and out of the shop in about 5 mins. Definitely will return for my key/lock needs.
Tim P.
Great staff, and great quality work. My key cutting need took extra long because of some computer drama, so they slashed the price of my order and gave me lots of extra keys.  I'll definitely go back.
Peter W.
Cut and programed a security key for my Toyota for less $ than the local hardware store. Awesome!

Rekey my locks in minutes TWICE!

I was in and out of the shop in under 10minutes with a new lock and a new set of keys. (They said i was lucky and got in at the right time ;) - 11am on a Saturday.

Went home and came back with another lock and again done in under 10mins.

They are really nice, knowledgeable and speedy!

Price wise for the speed and convenience i think it's reasonable. 2 locks and 3 keys for $45.

The bonus - garage right behind and plenty of street parking (if you cone at the right time).

We had a complicated replacement car key situation with our 2003 Honda Accord..they knew what do to at a reasonable price..SMLW rocks!

While they're definitely not the kind of place you want to go bargain hunting, if you need some bizarre part for some bizarre commercial lock and don't want to wait around for UPS after ordering from the manufacturer, they probably have one in stock and know exactly where it is--today. That is much, much more than can be said of most locksmiths in the bay area.

I happen to have all the tools to key my own cylinders and bore my own holes so I am unlikely to ever need their installation services, but having done enough of that sort of work for myself, I have a feeling that many of the one star reviews complaining about them "ruining" structurally unsound doors are from the same kind of people who complain when the plumber doesn't replace their tile and drywall after knocking holes in it to fix the pipes they're actually licensed to. I have never found their staff anything but pleasant and courteous to deal with myself. You don't call a locksmith if you need extensive carpentry work, folks.
F K.
Walked in and asked to have a key copied. Handed over the key, paid, and walked out in less than 3 mins.  Used the key on my lock--success it worked. Inexpensive and quick.
Adrian A.
Great service!!! Brought in my sliding door lock to get it re-keyed and they got it done in 20mims. I'll come back to these guys if I ever need that kind of service again. A+++
.E E.
If you don't mind poor customer service, this is the place for you.
I tend to be a bit more spoiled, expecting people speak to me in a courteous tone.
Michael W.
Thanks  Eric for your knowledge, expedience, and kindness!! You gave me an expeditious solution for my broken motorcycle key in the gas cap! Now I can ride with confidence again! YESSS!
Mike H.
I went to San Mateo Lock Works this afternoon with my complete front door lockset in hand, explained to Jesse, the locksmith, that my granddaughter had succeeded in securing the key in the lock.... maybe never to be retrieved... and he laughed!!
He then worked his magic, took it apart, removed the key, said some magic incantation, re-assembled it and said I should get a few more years use from it and made me promise to keep the key away from my grandkids!
When I offered to pay him, he shooed me out of the shop with a smile on his face and said, "No charge!" Now, that's service!...
Candice H.
Service was great as I was jumping off the train and asked if they could still help me out. They made my 6 keys in less than 1 minute and while they were closing shop.  

I was stunned that I paid $25 for 6 key copies though. Sort of sounds outrageous in pricing.  I actually wonder if they overcharged me for two keys by accident. I did recall the guy saying 8 when he was ringing me up- I didn't understand he may have been talking about keys.  Had 4 keys on my chain but only got 3 copies. I'll go back and see what they say!  Still have two more to make anyway.

The guys that work there are great though! Very awesome looking store too.

I spoke with both Jesse and Gary. They were both great. I had an old safe inherited from my parents years ago. They had bought it from the San Mateo Lock Works years ago. Recently we were having problems opening it.  I called the number on the safe.  Jesse took the time to email specific instructions to try.  Failed again. Called back and Gary walked me through it again and I was able to open it.  They were both so nice and very patient and very knowledgeable. Gary gave me great information about having the safe serviced, which I had no idea needed to be done, and what to look out for when searching for someone in San Jose.
Manolete C.
Went in to get my 2010 Prius FOB programmed ($60 for program and $60 for key cut) and was helped by Gabriel. Had also spoken with Erick on the phone prior to get pricing.  Both gentlemen were very friendly, helpful and knowledgeable.  

I had called to schedule time to come in and was told that it would be good to come in at that time, since mornings are slower.  It was around 10am when I went there and was in/out of there in a few minutes.  If it was 10 minutes, I'd be surprised.  Quick and easy.  

Definitely recommend.

I've been here before to get locks re-keyed as well and was happy with the service then also.

Bought a lockset to replace one on my door.  Because of previously cut holes there were not many choices.  I found a display model I thought would fit.  Since it was a one of a kind floor model it wasn't priced.  I was offered the set at what turned out to be only 8% off retail for a floor model.  Oh well.  Arranged for installation because I wanted a professional job, not just a handyman.  Should have gone with the handyman.  The installer was very nice and worked really hard to install.  Had to cut the hole a little higher to make the locks work. Problem was when the hole was cut he didn't use tape to prevent splintering.   Also couldn't put on an outside decorative plate.  Okay, I can paint.  What I didn't bargain for was that the wood between the dead bolt and handle popped off a layer making it very hard to patch with an installed lock that I just paid $178 to get installed!  When I asked them to fix what they had done Gary said it was not their problem they are not painters and they can't predict these things.  They are the experts right?   They should make the installation right.  Any offer of help came only with a price tag on how much it would cost me additionally.  After he tried to explain why he wouldn't fix it for the third time I couldn't help but hang up.  Not at all helpful on fixing their problems.

Update alert.  I had Deluxe Window and Doors replacing a garden Window for me today.  I was asking the window installer (who did a great job by the way) about the lock problem.  He couldn't believe what a bad job was done.  He cheerfully drilled the hole and little higher and then the lock slipped right in with the outside face plate to cover the damage.  It really was San Mateo Lock Works problem and not my door as they said.  I would  erase stars if I could.  I'll try to post a new photo soon.  Boo on San Mateo Lock Works.  A little professionalism and service goes a long way!

Review for copying/duplicate keys

GO TO LOWES FIRST! It's much cheaper, and you can get the same great customer service at Lowes by the Tanforan Mall. If it's any household/gate key go to Lowes. If it's a specialty key like ones that say "Do Not Duplicate", then yes go to San Mateo Lock Works. Guys at San Mateo Locks Work know their stuff, and will duplicate complicated keys, but they over charge for the simple ones. A simple visit to make sets of keys could cost you $88 and the same set would be $20-$30 at Lowes.

Lowes $1.97~ per key

San Mateo Lock Works $4 - $8 per key
shane k.
my wife and i had jesse and michael out to hang seven internal doors w/all new hardware in our post-remodel house...  they were prompt, professional and friendly, and were done with all seven in about three hours!  the doors are perfectly hung and the new locksets look and work great.  i would definitely recommend sam mateo lock works to a friend.
Patricia B.
This place is the WORST. They have terrible customer service, zero follow up, multiple instances of ordering the wrong part and some very unfriendly service people. I recommend you find another locksmith.
Erik N.
Dropped in today for a key and was out in under a minute. The clerk who helped me wasn't overly friendly but worked quickly. Thanks for the key!
John L.
These guys did a great job fixing my door and making it more efficient and secure. Got here quickly and the installer George was amazing super nice guy and friendly!!!
Marius M.
I needed to get a remote control paired to my 2014 Prius. San Mateo Lock Works took care of it in half an hour and for just $60, which is a much better deal than anywhere else I've found locally.
Sue M.
I had a fantastic experience & wouldn't use anyone else ever again.  I called & needed them to come to me after losing my entire set of keys.  They came in the 30 minute window of time promised & was able to replace all the keys that were lost from my key ring working out of their company van.  It was great!  The price I paid was fine too for the convenience of the house call.  Highly recommend!
A W.
This is an expert locksmith if you have difficult issues this is the place to go. They offer a fair price not discount but not overcharging.

AA Rodas to the rescue!! I lost my car keys at 11 PM and found this place on yelp. Gave them a call and next thing I knew Jerry was on his way to make me a new copy! He made the key for me in less than 25 minutes and had me on my way! I'd recommend this place to everyone!! Thank you Jerry for saving my 4th of July weekend!
Marsha A.
Quick response and professional! Saved me when I was stuck, locked out, with the keys in the car. Thank you for doing what you do and in a timely manner. I have spread the word about this guy! Awesome service and will call Jerry again if needed!
Estella P.
Had the best experience with Jerry. He was very professional and quick to respond. I lost my car keys and the Chevy Dealership couldn't get me in until 4 days later. Called him and he made me a spare key and programed my car within an hour. If you ever loss your key fob, he's the one to call. Thanks again Jerry.
Kenny H.
Literally got amazing help with my Nissan Sentra 2015. I got on the phone with Gerry and it didn't take him long to get here. He was very nice and diligent with his work. He helped programmed two remotes and cut two keys. Super fast work with a really good deal. What else can you ask for? I'm coming back again if I ever need anything else.
Jennifer L.
I dropped my car key into the bay... so I called Jerry on a Sunday he came in 45 min. Open my car and made me a brand new key in less than 45min. He was very flexible on the price. Glad he was there to save me or else I wouldn't have a car to take my kids to school.
David R.
Called last week and got a price to cut keys and program 2 remotes for my wife's car.  I called last Monday and left a message wanting to set an appointment.  No return call.  Called Wednesday and spoke with someone and set up an appointment for today, Friday, at 10am.  No show.  Called at 10:30 and left a message, and again at 11:00.  Finally called at noon and left a message canceling the call.  Totally unprofessional.
James L.
Fast the Quick.  Made a spare Smart proximity key for 2015 CR-V.  Jerry cut and programmed the key (that I bought from Ebay) at half the price the car dealers charge.
Angelina O.
Thank you Jerry! I am big on Yelp... So here's the story I broke my key to my car inside of my ignition I called around all weekend and nobody could help me make a key I went to Home Depot and the scanner did not work so I called AA Rodas locksmith I called them this morning at 8:30 he said give them an hour and he would be there he got here at 9:30 my key was made in 10 minutes I'm so happy and so grateful because I was going to have to pay close to $300 and he did this for me under 100 bucks I would recommend all of my friends and family and anyone thank you Jerry
Steve O.
So far I've used Jerry twice to program and cut two blank keys for my Nissan Rogue. Most people I talk to would not even consider doing the job since I bought Mikey from a third party, I guess there rolling in the dough and they don't need my business. Both times he came to my house and was on time. He did the job very quickly while I waited with my daughter. He beat the price of other quotes I got and even knocked a couple dollars off for paying with cash. Very professional and a nice soft spoken guy. I would definitely use him again
Kerry G.
Jerry of AA Rodas Locksmith reprogrammed my automobile key fob quickly, efficiently and with professionalism and courtesy.  I would certainly use him again if I needed a locksmith's services. Good service,
Simran ..
I couldn't find the keys to my 08 Infiniti G37s coupe and i called Jerry around 8 P.M., he came by within an hour and reprogrammed a new key fob to work with my car, fantastic service I would do business with them again in the future
Foody M.
Although Jerry was a little hard to understand on the phone, we arranged a meeting and he arrived on time. His colorful little van was easy to spot and well appointed inside. I could tell he was well-prepared for whatever was called for. He was friendly and courteous, but got right to work with assured skill. Within 10 minutes he had deftly cut a copy of the Lexus blank I had brought with me and went straight to setting up my transponder, which he finished in another 10 minutes.
Jerry is obviously experienced and sharp. I was delighted to pay him a very fair price for the excellent work he performed. I highly recommend AA Rodas Locksmith.
Quan H.
Jerry helped me make my honda accord 2005 key. Great guy, good customer service, and real good price. Dealer charged me way more two times more compare to them. I highly recommend it.
Erik L.
Met up with Jerry to have him cut and program me a couple of keys for my truck that I just purchased.  These keys are special, they have the keyless entry remote built into a transponder and key.  Jerry was able to get both keys cut and programmed in about 15 minutes.  He charged a fair price, very professional and very reliable.  He doesn't use a off the shelf machine, he cuts the automotive keys to spec as if they were brand new from the dealer, not a dull copy.  He knows his stuff and has being doing it for 17 years.

I'll be going to Jerry for all my locksmithing needs.
Michael H.
Recently broke a key off in my lock and called Jerry to come help me. He was very professional, easy-going, reliable, efficient, and best of all, affordable! Other locksmiths were quoting upwards from $75 to $100 just to remove a lock. Jerry only charged me $50 which was very reasonable. I definitely recommend him when considering locksmiths around the East Bay!
Harry C.
I was locked out of my house and they were a pro in getting me back in. Offered the best price relative to others for my emergency!
irene g.
Sooo last night I locked my keys in my car. Right there on the front seat. Wow! It was 8:55pm. I called Rodas and Jerry told me he can get to me in 5minutes. Before I knew it he was there and popped my door open for me! Yay! He even made me a spare key on the spot so this doesn't happen again. Super fast, friendly and affordable! Totally recommend. I hope this doesn't happen to me again but if it does, I know who to call! Thanks Jerry!
Afaan N.
Jerry changed the locks at our new house. We called him and he was super accommodating and professional. He took apart the locks and installed new ones in no time, and even gave us a discount.
Highly recommended. I'd give 6 stars if I could.
Mike P.
Fast, reliable and jerry came in 10 mins after i called! Would definitely recommend AA Rodas Locksmith!
Natashia F.
I lost the key to my 1997 Ford Explorer and needed a locksmith quick. I called around to the other companies on yelp and was shocked how much the price was for a car key. Then I called AA Rodas Locksmith and Jerry gave me the best deal by a mile! He was very nice and and polite. Even when I made a mistake on the time I wanted him to come by, he had no issues with the reschedule. He came to my residence and had me a key in less the 15 mins! So awesome. I would definitely recommend this place not only for the quick service but also for the great customer service Jerry provided! Thanks a bunch!
