The following are some of my most commonly provided services.
Most people associate the need to call a locksmith with lockout situations, and I certainly do plenty of this. Whether it's your vehicle, home or business, I can get you back on the road, back in the house or back in business.
Another major piece of my business involves rekeying locks. This might be necessary if you have moved into a new property and aren't sure who has keys, or perhaps you're in the position of having to let go an employee. Whatever the situation, I can rekey your existing locks and make keys on the spot. I can also devise and implement master systems for your business that will simultaneously increase security and require fewer keys to be tracked.
Sometimes, despite our best efforts, we lose our keys. Lockstar has the ability to make keys for just about anything. Occasionally, this can even be accomplished remotely if a key code is available for the lock in question.
When your locks are not working properly, or you simply want a new look, you can count on me to quickly assess and repair or replace your hardware as needed. I carry a full line of the most commonly needed locks on my truck, and a vast array of options are available for order from my suppliers with styles to match your taste, whether it's traditional or ultra-contemporary.
Once on site, I am happy to offer free security consultations. This allows me to assess the security of your home or business and make recommendations accordingly. If lock work is recommended, a no-obligation estimate will be provided.
You may have heard of a practice called 'bumping' that has caught the attention of the media. I offer a three-phase approach to combating this phenomenon to make your property as secure as possible. The first level involves modification of existing hardware. The second level involves the use of cylinders with restricted keyways. The third level involves the use of cylinders with proprietary keyways. Lockstar has a plan for all budgets and levels of security.
As a child, I used to make lock boxes out of cigar boxes and erector set pieces. I would even dream up hiding places in the walls using fake electrical outlets. Now that I'm an adult and a locksmith to boot, I can indulge my passion by selling, servicing and installing safes, my favorites of which are wall safes. I use American Security safes exclusively, so feel free to check out their inventory and let me know which model you would like me to quote.
In this wonderful age of technological advancements, we no longer need to be present to know what's going on around the house. Using the latest wireless technology, along with mobile web devices like smart phones, tablets and laptops, homeowners can control and monitor their locks from anywhere they and the Internet happen to be. Call me to discuss the possibilities, or visit my contact page to submit your questions. Remote access is at your fingertips!
My industry embraces technology, and I am no exception, but there is a unique thrill that comes with working on antique locks. Whether it's an antique china cabinet, a mortise lock on the front door of a home built in the late 1800's or early 1900's or a classic automobile, I'm always up for a challenge.
