Pro-active, professional and quick service! I lost my keys and needed help opening my file cabinet. I called Bill's Lock Shop this morning. Peter arrived within 30 minutes, brought the new keys, opened the lock and removed the paper clip that was stuck in the lock - all within a matter of minutes. Problem solved thanks to Bill's Lock Shop. Thank you!

I purchased a used wooden entry door with an older Schlage lock set, no key. Brought it to Peter (Bills Locksmith) he disassembled the lock set so I could paint the door, showed me how to reassemble it and rekeyed us a new master key and two copies. Awesome! Premium service and a good price. I recommend!

Would highly recommend this Lock Shop!

You get what you pay for. If you purchase a cheap lock you’re probably going to get cheap protection. On that same token there is no sense installing an expensive lock on a cheap door. I look at the whole picture so I can provide you with the best solution for your needs.

Make it harder for the bad guys to get in your backyard. Motion lights, pets and even cacti are helpful in keeping intruders out of your space. Be mindful about locking your gates and being aware.
