WOW! I went to three other places for a special key to be duplicated and none of the other places could help me. Action Lock Doc helped in every way- they were fast (they made the key within 10 minutes of me being there), affordable, and professional. I highly recommend them and will be returning for any other key/lock needs.
These guys are great. Very friendly and helpful, both on the phone and in person. I will definitely use them again and recommend them. I locked my key fob in my car (which isn't supposed to happen). I had the key code and called them to see if they could make me a key. They put me on hold and had to hunt for the right one. They found it, made me a key and saved me $$$. Plus now I have an extra key!
Every key that they have made for me has worked perfectly. I have even had them rekey a file cabinet that I purchased on clearance elsewhere that was missing a key. I've been doing business there for at least 20 years. Always pleased.
So glad I found Joseph and his team!
Prompt, professional, and friendly. Needed a key, Ian had me in and out in 5 minutes. Would definitely recommend.
Bought a Schlage Smart Lock from Amazon. Needed to get it re-keyed so the key would match all the rest of my house locks. The guys at Action Lock Doc were able to do it in few minutes while I waited...and for a very fair price. I've definitely saving them in my favorites in case I ever again need lock work done.
Fixed my problem within 20 minutes. Their tech, Jeff, was a very nice young man. Appeared to be very knowledgeable, was pleasant, was courteous and articulate. Most of the time you never know who might show up or how they might perform. This was a very pleasant experience and I would definitely recommend this company. Jeff is an excellent representative of this company.
i need my home door key pad to be installed and surprisingly Action lock & key was able to install it. They had really kind customer service and was really professional.
Ian was outstanding. I needed a couple of rare keys cut and he not only had the blanks, but he was very knowledgeable and courteous. I will definitely go there again.
Imagine going to unlock or lock a door of your home or your car only to find the keys have gone missing. Either you lost the keys or someone stole them, but the problem remains the same. The door needs to be opened or secured, and the locks possibly need to be changed to prevent unauthorized access. In this situation, it’s best to replace or rekey the locks and ensure this doesn't happen.
Broken Key in Lock
With time and regular use, keys develop metal fatigue and break. When this happens when the key is in the lock, call on the pros to resolve the problem. The locksmith assesses the situation to determine the best course of action. In some cases, the key can be removed and the lock rekeyed. Other times, the lock needs replacement, as it depends on more than one factor.
Moving into a new residence requires replacement or rekeying of the lock to prevent unauthorized entry on the part of the former owner or tenant. This step likewise needs to be taken when moving into a brand-new apartment or house. While there is no concern of a prior tenant or owner accessing the property in this situation, there is no way to know how many contractors and subcontractors have keys and could enter the residence without your knowledge. The locksmith replaces or rekeys the locks to prevent this from happening.
Advancements in Technology
Thanks to technological advances, home security improvements continue at an amazing rate. Men and women find they have a range of options with regard to entry mechanisms for the home or business. Consider investing in keyless entry to prevent unwanted visitors from coming into the home or business, or speak to the locksmith about the many other options available. The locksmith considers your preferences and needs before offering suggestions about what will provide your desired level of security.
Individuals have enough on their minds and don’t want to remember which key goes to which door. Eliminating this issue involves nothing more than rekeying all locks in the home to allow for single-key access. This becomes of great help when one lock develops problems, as other entry points into the home ensure the property owner or tenant won’t be locked out. However, this doesn’t mean the problem should be ignored. It’s best to call in a locksmith immediately to ensure problems don’t develop with the other locks and that the issue wasn’t with the key itself rather than the lock.
One problem individuals encounter when they upgrade to an electronic access system is they forget the code combination or password, especially when the item being secured isn’t used regularly. Writing down the code or password doesn’t offer a solution, as the goal is to keep this information private. If it is written somewhere, others may find it and access the secured asset. Locksmiths reset and recode electronic keypads for clients frequently and can be of assistance to you at this time. They perform this service for clients when an employee leaves an organization, a couple divorces and the spouse retaining the asset wants to secure it, and more. Don’t hesitate to ask if you feel this service will benefit you.
