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.
VERY POOR SERVICE!!!!!!

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!

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!

Daniel was super helpful and honest. Great experience. I'll certainly do business with Security Safe again when the need arises.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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 :)

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.

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.

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.

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.

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!

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.

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....

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+

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!

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.

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!

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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!

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!

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!

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!!! =)

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....

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...

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.

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.

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.

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.

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!!!

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.

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 :)

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!

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 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.

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.

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.

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.

Yelp really works!!!

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!

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!

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.

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.

WOW!!!!!!!!!!!!
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!!

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.

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.

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.

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.
