Big Baby Jesus C.
I didn't have an appointment with these people, I stopped by their shop to have some locks rekeyed.  Well, some joneser snaked the tumbler out of one of the doorknobs I bought and returned it to Home Depot and I didn't notice, so they couldn't rekey that one obviously.  Then they knocked the fee for one of the locks they did do off the tab, and offered to do the lock they couldn't do for free if I exchanged it for a good one due to the inconvenience which wasn't even their fault!  So I bring in the good lock and they did it while I waited.  Seldom do I give people 5 stars the first time, but Jesus what more can you expect from people?

I was in urgent need or rekey-ing my home locks, and I called Bayside. Xavier attended the call. he sounded very friendly and professional. Gave me a rough estimate  over the phone and fixed up an appointment for 10AM next day. It was very urgent, but he said he did not have anything on the same day. Next day, I took a few hours off from work, drove all the way to my new home and waited there. Nobody showed up. When I called the office, they did not have any clue about the appointment. I had to call someone else ( who did a great job btw), to fix it.

I hate to deal with unreliable people. From other reviews looks like they do a good job, but my experience with them was bad . Wouldn't recommend them to anyone

Had a 2000 Nissan Maxima and a 1998 Honda civic having ignition key issues. The Maxima's key would not turn and the Honda key stuck extremely bad. Isaac (the owner) came out to my Honda with a can lubricant and showed me how to fix the issue and advised me to get a new key. I went home and use WD40  and did the very same thing to my Maxima and it started to work like new.  He spent a good 30 minutes with me and only charged me the price for one key. Great customer service and in my case and new loyal customer.

I came here awhile back to have a key copied, unfortunately I came 20 minutes before closing time  to my surprise they were closed "early" for the day. Came back the next day and the staff was extremely rude and provided very little help.

I had Xavier from Bayside Locksmith come out  to originally cut a key for my 95 Ford Explorer. Once Xavier began to work on it he noticed that I needed a new ignition switch. I saved over $50 dealing with Bayside Locksmith and would gladly recommend them to anybody.
Thank You Xavier and Bayside Locksmith.

Went to get a price on a remote programmed. Guy said it must be a remote from GM or they can't do it. If that was the case I'll just go to the dealer.  Plus they want an arm and a leg just for a remote. Took my remotes purchased from Amazon and got em programmed from a friend who had a programmer.
Terry L.
Very satisfied with the work that Bayside Locksmith did to order and program my 2nd 2010 Toyota Prius key fob!  It took about a week to get the key fob (due to the 4th of July holiday). Once it arrived, one of their techs programmed the 2nd key fob quickly. It probably took him less than 10 minutes. Their team was courteous and professional. All features worked - comfort access, open/close using remote, and panic button. Their laser cutter was offline but they will contact me to finish cutting the valet key that is part of the key fob. Price was much lower than Toyota also. I'm glad I took my friends recommendation and used  Bayside locksmith. Highly recommend them to duplicate Toyota Prius keys!
Teresa M.
After calling three places for quotes for 5 lock re keys after a car theft I came back to my first call- it was totally the right decision!!
Xavier was the best ...double checking each lock and was  professional and efficient. I highly recommend this company.  Especially the technician Xavier who took a stressful situation and made it much better.
Frankie L.
Went to the store to get a estimate on getting a key made for my car with remote cut and program. the man at the counter was very rude with a bad attitude quoted me a higher price than what the dealer charges and try to tell me the dealer doesn't program the key...
Keshni K.
Confirmed that someone will be at my house at 11am...called this morning at 1125am, they stated they will be at my house within 30mins (between 11am-1130am) now It's 1229pm....still no answer. Spoke with Joseph at 1229pm who started the driver will be at my house within next 30mins??? Currently waiting...its 1230pm...so let's wait if someone do show up in 30mins...Poor Customer Service!
Took time out from my Work to wait here since 11am...I made my appointment 48hrs ahead of time.....???
Will update my comments after they finally show-up??

At 1pm Joseph called me back and Cancelled my Appointment. WOW!!!! What a poor service.
I just paid someone $120 to get my house key lock changed.
They just lost a $120 business to another company. I work in Largest Trauma Center Hospital in the Bay Area and Customer Service is very important in Healthcare. Money is not the issues I would had paid $800 for my door but the Customer Service Provided, made me wait for 3 hours and then cancel my Appointment that I made 48hrs ago??? WOW! I see over 400 people a day at my work....and I will make sure I Spend the bad news about BAYSIDE LOCKSMITH to enter Hayward community......please don't do business with them! You will be very disappointed just like my family.

I had such a positive experience that I knew I wanted to share it on Yelp.

I contacted BaySide LockSmith because they are a Diamond Certified company. I like using Diamond Certified companies because they go through an extensive vetting process.  

My locksmith was Xavier. I'm sure they're all good, but what stood Xavier out in my mind was his professionalism and speed. I asked him to rekey five locks for me. I also had a troublesome deadbolt that would decide if it wanted to open or not!  Xavier fixed this issue too.

If I could give BaySide more than five stars I would!
Dano S.
I was having some issues with my car keys and these guys totally helped me out! They were a lot more honest and helpful than the dealership! Saved me over $50 by having them help me instead of the dealer! Thanks guys!
Rodney A.
Fast, local honest small business. Reasonably priced compared to the local competitors. Xavier and his team super professional. Thanks for helping out in bind
Luis L.
Took Toyota Rav 4 in to get ignition and door lock replaced . Great knowledgeable, professional and honest work completed by Xavier and Greg. I'd highly recommend them to anyone needing a locksmith in the Bay Area! Thanks again guys. Not to leave out the guys at the shop. They helped as well. Until next time! Hopefully not to soon. Haha!
Kalial A.
Best locksmith in the whole Bay Area I would never go to anyone else they are friendly and very helpful and knowledgeable I went to bayside locksmith to have my new home rekeyed great job and I'm in love with my new door locks and door handles thanks bayside again u have my Business for life!!!
Linda K.
I took in my broken doorknob assembly and rather than just sell me a replacement they determined the problem, fixed it and it cost me less than half of a new door knob!
And whenever i have keys made there, they always work.
Great job!

Xavier saved the day!! I manage a large retail store in the bay area. The lock on our cash room broke at closing and without access to that room,we wouldn't be able to open for cash transactions the next day. I called Bayside at 8pm  and he promised to meet me 2 hours prior to opening.
Xavier was right on time,as promised. He was able to get the door open right away,charged EXACTLY what he had quoted the night before,took my card info over the phone so I didn't have to make a special trip in Monday morning traffic and sent my invoice via email immediately.
Quick,honest,skilled and efficient!! Thanks Bayside!!!
Deseamonique W.
I've used Bayside Locksmiths on several occasions. They've come out when I locked my keys in my car.   I had duplicates made for my house and car keys. They are always quick & professional.

Sarah J.
Excellent. Reliable. Fast with lowest prices of 5 places called. Nothing else I could ask for. I am very happy and have new locks on all my doors!
Janelle L.
Fast and affordable service. We discussed over the phone the options for changing our locks and he was on time, helpful and even tried to help us find our cat who we thought may have escaped out the front door. Highly recommend!
Robert C.
Ever had a key made and when you get it home you find it does not work?  That is because they don't maintain their equipment.   That is not the story with Dad's.  We have been dealing with them for over 20 years.  It has always done right.  Rick fixed a lock yesterday, and now it works better than it did new.  

They no longer maintain a store, but he does respond to phone calls.  If you need keys made, he will rendezvous with you.
J S.
Rich was timely, efficient and professional, coming to my home to rekey a number of locks.  He met his estimated price and timeline well, and good quality work!
Natalie E.
I needed them in a pinch to rekey 21 locks and they squeezed me in same day to take care of this urgent matter. Service was exceptional, quality of work was great, and price was beyond fair. I would absolutely call them again and/or refer them to a friend!
Hillary P.
We've had Rich over to our house twice and both times he has done a great job! He's rekeyed our exterior doors and replaced all the handles with new ones. Very nice and professional but also personable. Cost is reasonable and he does the job right. Highly recommend!
Heather S.
'Dad' (Rich & son), came out within an hour of my call to open a door I had locked (with only key inside).  Talk about fast, efficient, professional and totally great guys!  I am over the moon with speedy reliable service with a very friendly attitude.  Oh and by the way, Rich was able to cut a couple of new keys for me on the spot from his mobile shop.  Fully recommend!
Martha S.
Thank you for your fast, efficient and professional service. And for fixing my sliding door. You guys are awesome.
Maria V.
I used their service a few times to install new locks, make extra keys and get mailbox lock that was missing key drilled out and replaced. They were always nice and professional. Great small business.
Heidi B.
Used them to make copies of keys for years
They are now a mobile buisness

Like the Fourth of July Parade, the Tree Lighting Ceremony, and Primos Pizza, Dad's Locksmith is one of those community pillars which helps Danville maintain its small town charm.  For as long as I can remember this has been the place to go to for all of your locksmith needs.  It's been around since before I was a child and I've come to consider this small business one of the anchors of the Downtown Danville area.

  The staff is friendly, knowledgable, and extremely helpful.  They've always gone out of their way to go that extra mile to provide good olé fashioned customer service.  You just won't find staff that accommodating to customer needs anywhere but a family owned business.  

  In my opinion Dads Locksmith is very reasonably priced.  Yes it's true that if you really wanted to cut coupons and wait in line bright and early on Black Friday you could buy a slightly cheaper lock at a big box store but it will be just that.  You get what you pay for.  You'll never find the same level of service and expertise at a big box store.

  I've yet to have a negative experience with their in home service.  They are always reliable and On Time.  That's hugely important to me when scheduling any sort of in home service appointment.  If you're in the market for a new safe I would recommend you seriously consider Dads Locksmith.  Go in and talk to Rich or Dylan.  Tell them what you're looking for and they won't just try and push a product on you to close a sale.  They'll make sure you get the right product for your needs.

  I don't often write Yelp reviews.  When I do it is because a business has made a consistent impression on me time and again and I feel it is worth sharing.  This is one such instance.
Jennifer C.
I was told to go to Dad's by the company who is refinishing our front door. We also want to change the hardware on our front door at the same time. I spoke with the owner and instead of selling me a $2,000+ lockset for our door, he suggested we take it to a place in Livermore to have it refinished. I didn't even know that was possible! He said it would be about $400. Anyone who is willing to save me $1,500+ gets 5 stars in my book! I'll use Dad's any time I have a lock or security need from now on!

PS - They are closing their Danville location, but will be having a mobile business going forward and I hope they are more successful than ever!
Melissa P.
Thank you Dad's Locksmith!  Came in with a trailer receiver lock that didn't have a key.  They tried to pick the lock, but in the end they had to drill it out.  They were nice and easy to work with.  I now have new receiver lock that has a key, won't loose this key! Easy to work with and great service.  Thanks!
Jackie H.
Not too pleased with this company.  I am a local Realtor who had difficulties ordering locks and dummy locks for a client's front door with Lowes.  Decided to make my life easier by going to an expert.  I was promised the special order item would arrive.  It did not, nobody called. I made a trip down there and they said they would follow up and call me. Nobody called now they're closed for a week and my client has no door knob.  Not too professional.
Joyce B.
I wasted 5 trips to Dad's in Danville.  I was trying to replace a lock that is no longer made.  First trip, I got there shortly after 1 PM on Saturday and Dad's was already closed (one hour wasted plus I had to re-install the lock).  I went a 2nd time during the week.  I got there at 9:45 AM.  Posted hours say they open at 9:30 but there was no sign of life inside and they were not answering the phone.  I was two hours late to work that day.

I called the 3rd time and yes they were open.  I showed them my old lock and the pieces I needed were no longer made so we talked about the options and none of which were great so I went home to think about it.  We finally made the decision to replace all the entry locks to the house and I went back to Dad's a 4th time to get the four new locks I needed.  They did not have "dummy knobs" for the non-operating doors but would order them.

I got a call a few days later saying my ordered parts were now in.  I tried to get there again during the week but could not get away from work before the weekend.  Imagine my surprise when I pulled up on Saturday at 10:30 to find a note on the door saying the business was closed for the next two weeks so the owners could go on vacation.  It sure would have been helpful to have that bit of information when I got the message on Thursday that my handles were in.  I could have asked someone to pick up the locks for me.

By this time the lock on my front door was completely non-functional.  At this point, I went to a local ACE Hardware and bought new locks and had them all re-keyed.  Normally, I like to try and do business with a local business, but this one is just not open when customers need them.

My advice to others - GO ELSEWHERE!  Don't waste your time like I did.
Joyce H.
I called Dad's Locksmith and Security yesterday's and found the customer service representative to be professional and courteous on the phone. He helped me scheduled a convenient time to come over the next day.

Today, I had a great service call with Daniel, a lock technician.

He called ahead, arrived early, was polite and got my front door lock fixed quickly and efficiently. I really appreciated that he checked the lock meticulously, when he was finished, to make sure I wouldn't have any problems getting in and out of my house.

Overall really pleased with this company. They did a great job for me.
Jessica C.
Came recommended by another local locksmith. These guys are ready for anything. I had a jewelry box that needed a special old fashioned key to lock the top. The two men on duty were very helpful and tried 20+ keys before finding one that fit.

Thank you for your time and effort; it is much appreciated :)
Mike S.
Disorganized and amateurish.  Took them a long time to decide they didn't have the equipment to cut steel keys.  Unable to service my lock.  No lock cleaning solution for sale in store.  They did not seem to be professionals who had much experience.
P H.
The key broke off in our register at the restaurant.  I walked over to Dad's Locksmith with the two pieces and in seconds, Rich found a blank and was able to make a duplicate that worked perfectly!
Barbara G.
Rich was fabulous and extremely helpful!  We've always used them for our home locks since we moved to the area 13 years ago.  We were recently looking for a home safe and they were extremely knowledgable and well-versed in the different kinds, the specifications and benefits from the manufacturers.  They didn't try to hard-sell any product and they even offered to deliver the safe because of it's weight.  Rich and his son were flexible and even delivered it the day of purchase.  They're great to deal with so if you're looking for advice, service and quality products, this is the place to shop!!

Fast, friendly service... Highly recommend Island locksmith services!!
John V.
If your store has a "open" sign then why is the door locked and nobody is there??? Called the number, no answer. Saw another guy show up while writing this review out front and he did the same annoyed face as mine. Dude! Put one of those be back in 20 minutes signs up or just put a closed sign up. Inconsiderate and rude!
Virginia L.
I locked myself out of my bedroom and wasn't quite sure what to do. I tried to pick the lock myself after watching numerous YouTube videos but after many failed attempts, I decided to call Island Locksmith. It was Saturday morning and I called a few other companies before I called Island Locksmith, but they were trying to charge an arm and a leg just to open my bedroom door! I decided to call Island Locksmith and he immediately provided me with a very reasonable price quote and told me he could be at my house in 10 minutes. I told him I would call him back (I wanted to check if there were any other companies who would be cheaper), and after a few more attempts at other locksmiths, Island Locksmith was actually the most reasonable option. I called him back and he came right away. He was friendly, very knowledgeable, and went above and beyond, even replacing my lock, with no extra charge. They provide quick service, in and out, with exceptional service. I would definitely recommend Island Locksmith!!! Thank you for your help!!! =)
Katrina P.
Came here exactly at 1:45pm, Door says "OPEN" but second door says closed?? Yelp also says "open till 3pm". Unprofessional and a waste of time.!Don't bother coming, they don't answer their phones either.
Mark P.
I called and ask for a car FOB programming (I mentioned I have bought fob so all I need is programming). The guy who answered my phone told me it is very expensive to program my car (I have 2014 lexus IS). He kept avoid telling me the price and just mentioned "it is very expensive to program my car" and eventually tell me its around $600-$700 for programming my fob.... obviously he does not want my business at all....
Susan P.
These guys awesome.  Saved our day - super fast response, couldn't be more helpful in what was a pretty tough situation for us.  Our heroes!  All Saints School/Church loves Island Locksmith!
Jane C.
Thanks for the super service!   I took my remote key fob to a dealer who told me it was no longer working .. the price quoted was around $200 for the replacement and reprogramming.  Then I remembered I had called on Island Locksmith previously...and called them again.   I had purchased a new fob on line...took both to Island Locksmith.  He programmed the new one and then re-programmed the "broken" one!!  So now I have two!       Definitely recommend...
Bill R.
I should have written this review earlier but my last visit was so good again that I am doing it now.

These folks are wonderful, friendly, knowledgable, and provide first rate service.  On my first visit I had a new deadbolt that I didn't even buy there but I took it in because newly cut keys didn't work in the rekeyed deadbolt.  The locksmith explained that some times a newly keyed lock and key just have a rough edge.  He showed my how to "snap" the key a few times to knock the edge off.  The price -- no charge.  Saved me a lot as I later rekeyed every lock in the house myself to use a common key.  That "snap" trick was used often.

Later I wanted to rekey a lock on my screen door to match the common key.  Really funky lock and for the life of me I couldn't get it out of the screen door so I could take it in.  They did a home visit, ended up having to remove the screen and turn it upside down to get the pins to drop due to age and wear.  Very reasonable charge and now I have the perfect lock.

Most recently I had a heavy duty padlock (circular design to avoid access by a bolt cutter) for which I needed 2 duplicate keys.  Multiple hardware stores did not have the right key blank.  These guys did, and took the time to explain about the key blank and how it needed to be cut a little special to fit the lock cleanly.

Small shop with lots of skill and service.  Five stars.
Heidi V.
Found them on Yelp.  I didn't end up using their service, yet they went out of  their way to assist  and provide me with great information.

I'll be back!
Brian C.
Home Depot and Ace both failed to make a working copy of my motorcycle key. Island locksmith did it in two minutes. Trust the pros! These guys do great work.
Jini G.
Island Locksmith has a contract with me for lifetime!  

We first used Island Locksmith to replace our front door locks.  Upon inspection, Raj brought to our attention of some very important things that we never thought of looking at, being first time home owners.
Then we proceeded to get our windows replaced and the numb nuts (who are no longer in bus......FIGURES) that replaced our sliding door did not install the lock on the door correctly.  Raj and Doug came in and took the part with them to try to fix it in-house but the damage was bad so we ended up ordering a new one.  Doug came in and installed it sooner than expected which was GREAT in my books!

Raj, Doug & Junior know what they're doing and they don't just fix & go, they teach you how to properly handle and maintain your valuables.
alan q.
I needed a my front door rekeyed. I called these guys and they quoted me $45-$60.
They did come promptly, but they tried billing me for 3 times this amount.
Be aware of their estimates. The final bill will probably be diffferent.
Kitty R.
A job well done! I made the phone call to Island Locksmith at 10am, and they had 2 new car keys ready for me an hour later. He then promptly met me at my car to deliver the keys and confirm that they work, and charged a very reasonable price. I will definitely use this company moving forward.
O C.
they charged me $10 more for the same job they had done for me before. The store hours say they open at 9am but they were not there until after 10am.  Then they told me they would call me as soon as the job was completed which they said could take up to an hour. So after I waited for about 2 hours I called them back to find that the job had been completed...what happened to calling me back as soon as they were done. So I told them I would be right in to pick up the keys and when I arrived the door was locked and no one was there. So I called them and said I was standing out side and he said he just left to do a job but he would turn around to help me. It gets worse when he called me back to tell me he would take 15minutes to get back... Actually took longer than a half an hour. How is that possible when it only took me 5 minutes to get to the shop after I called them to tell them I was picking up my keys? Your best bet is to find another option for a locksmith. These guys are horrible!!!
Andrea J.
The son of owner is rude and unprofessional. The other staff member do not know how to install a car lock, but wanted me to pay $100 for a unfinished job. The whole time the son and other staff worked on my car they were on their cellphones and smoking cigarettes back to back. Please don't waste your time or money at this place of business.
Andrew Y.
I think I just got trolled by this place. I went in to get a couple keys cut (the rounded kind) and the son of the owner cut my keys so I had high hopes. LOL! I was 100% the calibration was off because when the job was done I asked him to look since they didn't match up. He refused to look and said he had to go. I refused to pay so they took the keys. Even if I purchased them the cashier didn't even know how to ring me up wtf...Actually the son was pretty badass for how much he didn't give a shit (almost could be in an Eminem music video or something). Even reminds me of when I was younger. However, I really feel bad for the owner (this kid's dad) who actually owns this place and trusts him.
VERY UNPROFESSIONAL to say the least :)
Herbert T.
I called this place today to open a door at my dads house. Although, the service was cancelled. These guys were very professional and they take their job seriously. I would definitely recommend them and use them in the future.
Kameko W.
Thanks Raj & Jr for hookin this new homeowner up! You two came in and gave me a very reasonable estimate for re-key and 5 copies of keys. I had already called around the day before and you were right in the middle for pricing, plus you have me two more copies then the other two businesses had said. I will definitely recommend you to anyone who asks, family & friends. Thanks guys!
Veronica S.
When I bought my house I called these guys to come out and change my locks. They were very fast & efficient. I would use them again for sure!
Jerry N.
Raj from this place was very helpful. My parents purchased a used car from a dealership and they only provided them one key. Since the car wasn't new, they wouldn't provide additional keys. The dealer wanted $149 plus the cost of the key. This place did it for $85 for the key and transponder programming. He was the most reasonable price in the Hayward area. I'll for sure come back here if I ever need transponder keys for any car again.

I've called twice about a job at my home, but no return calls. Perplexing business model.
Erick T.
I cannot say enough awesome things about Frank and Carolyn. Carolyn managed the phones, and was remarkably helpful in answering all my questions about getting the locks on my new home rekeyed. Frank then came out and was super professional, and did a wonderful job. Best of all, they offered some of the most competitive pricing of all the Bay Area locksmiths that I spoke with. I couldn't be happier with the entire experience, and would highly recommend Acme to anyone with locksmithing needs.
Steve J.
WOW! I couldn't be more satisfied.  After reluctantly discharging a housekeeper, I needed a quick re-key on the front door just to cover all bases, and called them at 1:30 pm. Left a message, and they were back to me within 5 minutes.  Having a tight schedule, I wasn't available the times they proposed.  Almost embarrassed, I said, "How about this afternoon?"  A quick check with her guy in the field, she confirmed, and Frank showed up 30 minutes later!

Pleasant, fast, courteous; this is service as it should be.  And the cost was fair, and unexpectedly low.  They're now in my contact file, the only locksmith.
Debra R.
This is a great firm that I have used twice to rekey my locks.
Sheila C.
Absolutely perfect experience!  Scheduling was a breeze and appointment went flawlessly.  Not only was he kind and courteous (taking off his shoes upon entering the house even though I assured him he didn't have to), he did a fantastic and thorough job for a great price.
Divya J.
Highly recommend this business for any locksmith changes! They were fast, respectful and very cost effective.
Bob H.
Called them to help unlock a file cabinet, went out same day and charged 1/2 what other companies were asking!
Dave H.
Being new to the Peninsula, we checked out Yelp to find a locksmith to change the locks on our new home, so chose A Acme due to its high rating.  Turns out that rating is well-deserved.  Frank is knowledgeable, efficient, punctual, friendly, and very fair with his pricing. Would definitely recommend A Acme/Frank.  BTW, his assistant Carolyn was also very friendly and efficient.
Nanci C.
Excellent, fast, trustworthy and reasonably priced. Frank is great an so is the office staff. Thank you!

We found A Acme Mobile Locksmith and chose to use them because of all the great reviews on Yelp.  We were not disappointed. We were able to get an appointment very quickly as well.

Frank was great! He was on time and completed our job skillfully. We are very pleased and highly recommend Frank and A Acme Mobile Locksmith!

4 years later and Frank is as good as ever!   Just had 4 entry door cylinders rekeyed in less than an hour and Frank handled a special request for a mailbox re-key as well.  I wish all Services companies had the same customer-first mentality as Acme Mobile Locksmith!

We've used acme three times now and they are just awesome.  Really nice, timely, and do great work! They stand behind their work too. The first time I used them was to change all my locks which was great. They came back out again when I wanted them to replace a lock that was failing and they did so really quickly. They also educated me on how to unlock the bathroom doors and left me with a little lock to do so. Also came back out the next day after I called to change some more locks and it was so fast. I'll never call anyone else again for locksmith work!

Can't say enough about Frank. Excellent locksmith, very nice guy, fast, and really reasonably priced. We won't be using or recommending anyone else!

I called Friday afternoon to have the front door lock changed at my shop. They checked the schedule and said they would fit us in same day.  They arrived on time. They were very professional and supper efficient.  Had the lock changed in no time and actually gave us free keys. Very affordable. It doesn't get any better that that. Thanks Acme.

Frank provided excellent service!  My Baldwin life time warranty replacement part was not right for my Baldwin Mortice lock but Frank figured out how to solve the problem quickly.
I thought I would pay somewhere around $80 by reading some other yelp reviews but it was even lower than what I thought and he didn't take my offer for tips.  What an honest guy!

Frank just came by and rekeyed our two entry doors for us. We just bought a new house and needed to change the locks. He was very punctual (in fact, 15 minutes early), very polite and worked efficiently and cleanly. His rates are also very reasonable: $45 for the on-site visit, $10 for each lock he re-keyed. He was very responsive over the phone and made the whole experience easy!

I locked myself out of my condo at 4:45am and called Frank who arrived within 30 minutes and opened the lock in under 5 minutes. Not only was he friendly and efficient, he charges way less ($65) than other locksmiths who quoted me as high as $300! Thank you Frank for saving my morning!
Todd Z.
Excellent service - professional, honest, trustworthy. He arrived a few minutes early, fixed the problem with my lock in no time, and even told me how to fix it myself if it ever happens again. This is your guy.

Great services, on time, fair price.  Frank replaced a few of our locks and also did a lot of research for us to find obscure foreign parts we needed to repair locks.  Highly recommended.
Lorraine E.
Highly recommend Frank for all your locksmith needs.  Yelp reviews are right on, he arrives early, offers to remove his shoes inside the home, and is quick and efficient.  We had him rekey all the locks in the home and make new keys for everyone.  Prices were more than fair.  Even when we could not find one of the keys, Frank was able to do the job without any problem.  Professional, efficient and fair, this company has it all.  Easy to make an appointment, we were able to find a time that worked the very next day.

I've been using Steve's Lock & Key for about a year now. I can't say enough good things!! Steve is prompt, curteous, and so very helpful. He has helped our small business grow, and we couldn't be more greatful!

Can I give more than 5 stars? I mean the job that was done by Steve's Lock & Key was beyond fabulous, worth more than 5 stars!!! The service was beyond amazing. I can tell Steve is very trustworthy man. He is good at what he does!!!!! I expected a really high invoice for the jobs I gave him and when I seen the invoice I was shocked to see such a decent amount. I had him service my home, my front door that I decided to fix myself many many years ago, yeah I screwed it up more than fixing it. So I called Steve, and guess what he game to the rescue!!!! He fixed it now the door shuts perfectly.
So, than I needed new locks installed in my new office. Hmmm who should i call, I thought to myself?!  Oh I know Steve's Lock & Key. He came out in very mannered time. He installed 4 locks on my new office and made me copies of keys.
Amazing company, fabulous work, affordable prices, trustworthy man, well mannered, great customer service, all around an amazing company.

I needed to get into a cheap safe with a tubular key cylinder for the override since the batteries died before I could replace them (yes I am stupid).  I mailed Steve a couple of pictures of the safe and locking mechanism/keypad and he said he didn't recognize it and that he would need to pick it.  This is what I expected.  I checked with another locksmith who was also helpful over email but the difference is that Steve just so happens to live near me so he offered to stop by on the way home one day and open it up.  As a result of the convenience for him he gave me a huge break on the price compared to the competition.  He was about 60% less....This was something that he offered up under his own volition!

Steve showed up on time,  was friendly, knowledgeable, skilled,  and quickly accessed the safe.

While he was there we discussed an unrelated topic concerning electronic deadbolts.  He gave me his professional opinion and some options I wasn't aware of which was extremely helpful.

A great experience.  I would highly recommend calling Steve if you need an onsite locksmith.

Steve's services were excellent. We had just moved into our new home and we were handed a string of random keys. I had looked at them and said some choice words. AND, I couldn't even use the keys to open any of the f@&$ing doors!! Steve came, on time, examined all the locks around the property, said he could get me one key for all the doors of the house! He conditioned the locks, he made the keys and I no longer needed to use profanities to get inside!!
Laura O.
Steve re-keyed 2 doors for me and made copies on site.  He was friendly, responsive, professional, and reasonable.  Couldn't ask for anything more.  Thanks Steve!
John D.
Steve always provides excellent, prompt service.  Great guy to deal with, highly recommend!
Sylvi R.
Steve came out the same day and repaired our front entry lock. It works very well now and we can stay safe! Very professional! I would highly recommend him!
Mia B.
Awesome - I highly recommend Steve.  I needed a replacement key for a lock, and he took care of my problem professionally and quickly.  I work in real estate and plan on hiring Steve again when I need help with keys/locks!

Steve is great. I called him at the end of the day and he called me right back. He had just arrived at his home but told me he would be right here to do the job. He was here in less than what he said and not only rekeyed the locks (2) he made  6 keys for me at less that I could ever pay for a key.  He was fast, kept to his quote and oiled the locks as a bonus! No nonsense guy, hard working and honest. I wrote to that Devin A from Los Angeles because he put a bad comment under the wrong Company.  Steve works solo and not in LA, And once you use Steve it is obvious that his level of integrity will keep business coming and a miss placed bad comment should be removed from Steves perfect score.

Steve was recommended to me by a friend who recently changed locks in his house (5 of them ) and was very happy with his work.  Steve returned my call promptly, made time for me the next day and did a great job really fast.   I needed my front door lock changed, he did a good job.  He was fast and gave me 5 new keys.  His price is reasonable.  I highly recommend Steve.
Devin A.
The rudest company ever.  When I moved in my home, I called them to rekey.  They upsold me "the best lock" on the market.  They were apparently supposed to give me a card with it, which is the only way I can get new keys made.  Only they didn't (and I'm POSITIVE) since I keep EVERYTHING!  I even had the original calendar appointment from 2009.  And I have ever bit of paperwork from my house in one file.  I never even knew you needed a card...so couldn't possibly "misplace" something that I didn't know existed.  Also, the lock didn't fit properly and the service man was rude.  

After realizing I couldn't get keys made (even though I'm the owner of the home) without them or going directly to the manufacturer and paying a huge fee there to, I called.  Dave was extremely rude insisting that the service person gave me a card (he wasn't there).  Then he starts telling me that I tipped the technician $10 and forgot that so I must have forgotten.  The lock cost $242.  He basically told me I was lying.  Don't do business with them.  SCAMMERS!!!

I was moving back to my house after renting it out for a couple of years. I called Steve, and he was very easy to talk with to make an appointment. He arrived on time, handled everything smoothly, and provided great service. I had two different keys (on 5 cylinders) that I wanted to re-key. He made a really convenient master key that worked for both, and side entry key that would only work for the side door. He was able to even tag some of the keys with "DO NOT DUPLICATE". I am very happy with his service and my keys/doors/locks now. Thank you Steve!

I called Steve with a "sticky lock" issue that had been looked at by another locksmith a year ago, but not really fixed. The door got so stuck that I tried Steve, who was recommended by yet another locksmith out on medical leave. Steve found two problems, the door was coming loose from its mountings in the frame, and, the internal lock mechanism was dry. Steve essentially rehung the door and lubed the lock mechanism. Opening, closing and locking the door is a joy again after living with creaking and scraping. Steve does great work and provides good customer service.
Jarrett T.
Steve is a honest guy who does an honest job. I had lost a set of keys for a door lock and deadbolt. He came out and made me a new set of keys in no time. Professional, courteous and friendly.
Betty B.

Sharon L.
Steve is very good and fast. He comes to your house, fixed the lock and give you 2 mail box keys in 15 mins. And does a great job and the best prices. No BS for sure.
Max R.
Steve provides fast and professional service and he goes above the call of duty. I recently used Steve when I was locked out and I was very pleased at the level of service. I would strongly recommend him to anyone looking for a locksmith.

Quick, professional, family business! George is pretty great, gave me a fair price for an after-hours lockout ($60), and has been smithing for over 40 years! He arrived quickly and he and his son had the door open in no time!  I don't think they are great at advertising...so definitely support these local dudes if you can!

PS - Their new phone number is 510-821-7321.

I was locked out of the house and started calling locksmiths from the phone book.  Most of the companies with big ads were too busy or too expensive.  One company would not even tell me their price over the phone and wouldn't be there for an hour, they said they would call, so I kept calling other locksmiths.  

We called George, he arrive same time as the other locksmith, the other guys were late & also tried to tell me it cost more because it was after 5 (we called them at 4).  I went with George, he was inexpensive $50 to open the lock.  He got there in 15 minutes, did not have a different rate based on the time of day.  

We called George again when we locked ourselves out of our new place while moving, he unlocked the screen door & showed me how to break the glass in the small window pane of the wood door when we realized that the door only unlocked from the inside.  Once in the empty house he made sure it was really our place- we showed him the keys opened the door.  He's a friendly & decent guy, we talked about how he used to live in the same neighborhood.

Five stars for no hassle, fast arrival, working around problems, affordable, & professional.  I highly recommend him.
