Reputation counts and we stand behind ours.

Should I Get New Keys?
This is a good question. If you’ve lost the key to your car, office or home, you might wonder if you should change the locks. Even if someone comes across your lost key, they would have a huge number of locks to try to fit it into, which most intruders probably won’t waste time with.
However, if there’s any identifying information included with your lost key, it might be a good idea to change the locks. Changing the locks can also give you peace of mind if you need it so go ahead and get new ones if it makes you feel better. In the meantime, we’ll get that lock opened for you so you can get into your house or car.
