Locksmith Services for Montgomery County


Security is not something people should need to stress over. If you think that someone has stolen a key to your home, or a previous tenant still has access to your property, or if a former disgruntled employee still has a key to your office, you need to change your locks right away. This is not the kind of thing that one can afford to wait on. Get changes made the when you need them done!  If you call in the morning, I can usually come to your home on that same day with my service van, and make your locks work on a new key.  The old key won’t work any more.  We will try the old key before I leave just to make sure.  I always encourage people to try all of the new keys to see that they work smoothly and try the old key to be sure that it  does not work.  I can make copies of the new key in my truck so that you can hand them over to the people that you do want to have access.  When I leave your home, you will have new keys, and the old key won’t work.

If your locks are in good condition, we can rekey them.  But if your locks are worn or damaged, I have locks on my truck and can replace them.  We will look the locks over together when I visit your home and we will agree on which locks will be reused, and which will be discarded and replaced.  Often, people will want deadbolts installed above the entry knob lock for additional security, and that can be done on the same visit.  Sometimes people have locks that just don’t work easily.  This is probably because the house has shifted, and the frame of the door is not aligned with the locks.  I will make adjustments at no extra cost.

If you live in Maryland, there’s a good chance that we can service your lock needs. Specifically, we service the entirety of Montgomery County, including Gaithersburg MD, Rockville MDBethesda MDSilver Spring and Germantown. Whether you need locks rekeyed, installed, opened, or duplicated, we’ll handle the work. There’s no need to entirely replace a lock when it can be rekeyed. Keep intruders with old keys out and have your locks reworked for a new key. If you have a master key and need new locks added, we can handle that too. If you need a lock system to work with a master key, we’ll take care of it. And, for your convenience, we can almost always handle it the same day! Call early and we’ll get there as soon as possible!
