I had an almost 50 year old toolbox that the key had been lost for that I wanted to get opened. I had already had one locksmith tell me that he could not do it because he did not have the correct blanks to re-key it. I called A1 Lock and Safe and the receptionist told me to text pictures of the lock to Ricky. He told me that he wasn't sure he could re-key it, but if I just wanted it opened to come...

I was quite pleased with the results.

DESCRIPTION OF WORK
I thought the reason I couldn't open a sliding glass door was because I had lost the key, but as it turned out, the door was stuck because of dried paint. The gentleman really worked hard to get the door open.

The service was excellent. Locks are working better than they ever have. The locksmith was friendly, professional, timely, and did fast excellent work. They also saved me money, as when I first contacted them, I was seeking to replace, rather than simply repair, the affected doorknobs and deadbolts. After diagnosing the problem, they advised me that the house had merely settled a bit, but that the...

I called A-1 and they invited me to bring the safe in, which I did. They tried to open it with the key, with no success, and then explained that the only way to get it open would be to drill out the lock. They had explained on the phone that this option might be necessary. I agreed, and they drilled it out right away. I had feared that I might have to leave it, but they did it while I waited. And ...

I had bought a cruddy little SentrySafe product to keep papers in a fire- and water-resistant box. The key opened it fine when I tested it, but once I put the papers in, I couldn't get it open.

John Bruner answered the phone and assured me that I wasn't the first person not able to replace a good front door lock combo. He promised to be at my home in 30 minutes, since my front door was wide open and unsecured. John delivered--as promised; installed the new locks within 30 minutes of arrival, so the whole experience took only an hour. He tested the locks and re-routed one strike plate hol...
