Our Services

  • Mobile Service – This means we bring the lock shop to you. Our mobile locksmith shops are able to cut new keys, replace locks, rekey locks and install and service most electronic card access systems.  This means more convenience and less wasted time for you. Most services can be completed in one quick visit.
  • Locked Out? – Have you lost your keys? Are you locked out of your Home, Office or Auto? We can let you in with no damage to your property and replace your lost keys. Proof of ownership or occupancy required.
  • Keys made – Are you having trouble getting a key duplicated properly? We make duplicate keys for almost any kind of lock including automotive transponder and high security locks. In fact, we can do something that other places cannot do, we can make you an ORIGINAL key. An original is much better than a tracing of your already worn out key. Often, making an original makes the key easier for you to use. No more wiggling and jiggling. We stock a large number of hard to find keys that you won’t find at a hardware store. And our keys work the first time! Bring your key to the shop at 241-B Heard Street, Elberton – 9-5 Mon – Fri. (call first)
  • Lost Keys Replaced – Have you misplaced the key to your car, truck, desk, filing cabinet, deadbolt lock, or anything else that uses a key? We can replace the key for you. Many keys can be made quickly if there is a code on the lock. If there is no code then we can hand fit a key to any lock. If you can bring it to the shop you can save the cost of a service call. (call first)
  • Automotive Keys & Remotes – Chip keys, Transponder keys Push to Start keys and Laser Keys are no problem. We can replace lost keys or duplicate keys for almost any vehicle. We also have the equipment to program the electronic keys to work in your car. Need a new remote? We can provide new remotes or replacement shells for any automotive remote. We can also program it to work properly in your car.
  • Locks Changed – Have you moved recently? Are you concerned about how many keys might be “out” to your new home or office? Give us a call and we will rekey your existing lock to shut out all previous keys. When we are done your lock will only be opened by your new key. If you have several locks we might be able to set them to work on a single key. If you are a business with several departments and offices, maybe a master key system is what you need. Let’s talk about it.
  • High Security Locks – Concerned about unauthorized duplicate keys to your home or office? We can provide you with a high security lock system that requires your personal authorization for duplicate keys. These key blanks simply are not available to anyone but us. No need to worry about employees getting keys made at the hardware store. As an added benefit, high security locks are resistant to picking, drilling, and “bumping”.
  • Lock Repairs – Do you have a lock that just isn’t working properly? Is it hard to lock? Hard to unlock? Does the key stick or require you to “fiddle with it” to get the lock open? Give us a call, we can fix it.
  • Card Lock Systems – Would you like to know  who  went  where  and when anywhere in your facility? Do you need a flexible way to control who has access to sensitive areas? Do you need a permanent record of access to those sensitive areas? If you answered yes to any of these questions then we should talk about a card access system. Modern technology has dropped the cost on these systems substantially. Many are self contained and run on battery power, so there is no need for expensive wiring. See below for electronic key systems.
  • Electronic Key Systems – this type of system functions just like a card access system, but it uses your existing locks. All we have to do is replace the key cylinder with an electronic one.  The electronic key is programmed with the list of doors and time zones that the key holder is allowed to access.  Installation is a breeze and you get a system that gives you full control over employee access along with printed audit trails. Ask us for more information or a demonstration.
  • Safe Combinations Changed – Unsure who knows your secret code? Let us change the combination for you. Even better, we might be able to install a new electronic safe lock that makes it easy for you to change your own combination.
  • Safecracking – Is your safe locked and the combination lost? As a professional safecracker, I have advanced training, skills, and equipment that allows me to open even the highest security safes and vaults.  I can usually open a safe that has malfunctioned using non-destructive diagnostic techniques. If the combination is lost, I can sometimes use some “locksmith magic” to determine the combination. If that doesn’t work then I may have to “drill” the safe. Drilling, when done properly, does not affect the integrity of the safe. I use a very small hole (about 1/4″) to solve most problems. When it is repaired, that particular spot is invisible, and usually stronger in that spot than the original construction. Your safe will be repaired to better than new. Call me for an estimate. 
  • Safes & Vaults – New & Used – Are you concerned about fire or burglary of your important papers or valuables? Maybe you need a safe. Did you know that most safes sold in retail stores are for fire protection only? Also, the ever popular “gun” safes sold in big box stores are built to a particular price point. The have big locking bolts, shiny paint, and electronic locks. But when you look deep into the actual construction, all theses things are just window dressing to make the average consumer think they are getting a good deal. Most are junk. Most safes sold in “big box” and department stores can be pried open very quickly with simple hand tools. When you need a safe or vault, call me for a free estimate on a REAL safe that will properly protect your valuables. Safes are like parachutes. When you really need it, you don’t want it to be a cheap one 🙂
  • Electric Gates – Are you concerned about who might come up your private drive? Do you have rural property that needs the convenience of an electric gate? I am a certified installer of GTO/Linear electric gates especially designed for country property, homes & estates. They give you the same convenience of an electric garage door, but as a gate to your home. Wireless intercoms and driveway alert alarms can be included as part of the system. With over 50 gate installations in the area, I’m positive I can provide a solution for you.
  • Driveway Alarms – Have you been startled or surprised when someone shows up at your front door? Many country homes have long secluded driveways and it sure is nice to know when someone is headed up to see you. Our wireless driveway alarms have a 2 mile range and report to either a base station in your home, or to a hand held walkie talkie. If you have 2 or more hand helds you can use them to communicate around your farm as well as be alerted to the driveway alarm. We even have motion sensors that can detect wildlife (deer, etc) and signal you on your radio.
  • CCTV Cameras – Also known as Nanny Cams or Baby Cams, video cameras are so reasonably priced that you can afford to use them to watch over your family and property. They can be wired or wireless and you can see the images and hear the audio from any computer or right on your smart phone. All you need is a good internet connection, either DSL or cable. I personally like the Ring Doorbell cameras along with their indoor cameras, and exterior floodlight cameras.
  • Push Button Code Locks – Do you have children who get home from school before you leave work? Would you like to know each time they arrive home? How about being able to see a picture of when they arrived? You can do all this with a smart phone or any computer. I like the locks which can use the “z-wave” home automation protocol. Two examples are Schlage and Yale. I use a few of the Yale digital locks on my own home. I get a text message any time certain codes are used to open the door. I can pull up the camera and play back the video of when the door was opened. As a bonus, unlocking the door can also turn on the lights if you wish. Expecting a repair man and you are not home? You can unlock the door right from your phone. Do you have some property that is unattended? You can use this lock to allow access for visitors (renters, hunters, etc) and you can even raise and lower the heat or AC right from your phone. All you need is a good internet connection (DSL or Cable). If you just want a push button lock without all the extra features, I have those available also.
  • Door Closers  – Do you have a door that needs to close automatically? We can install an automatic door closer to keep the door shut. If your door closer is broken or leaking oil we can replace it with a new one.
  • Automatic doors – I can install an electric operator to automatically open and close doors for you.
  • Door Repairs – Is your door not closing or locking properly? Many times these are simple issues to fix. Over time buildings settle and doors become misaligned. When this happens the door may rub the frame or the latch may not engage. Call me for a free estimate.
