In addition to locks we also service and install all kinds of doors, door frames and door closers. A lock is useless if the door and frame it is connected to are defective.

Getting keys made that work here in New York City is not always simple. Hardware stores that have a key machine are not locksmiths, and most of the time the keys they make don't work. We understand the individual processes associated with duplicating the various manufacturers of keys in New York City. Our shop has nine different well-maintained machines for duplicating a large variety of keys from not just New York but around the world. Our keys are guaranteed to work so you never have anything to worry about.
The most common reason for calling us is to change your locks - fit your lock to new keys so the old ones no longer work. We proudly charge a $125 flat rate to change any lock. No matter what kind of deadbolt, door knob of any kind, Medeco, Mul-T Lock etc. we will re-key it for $125. This may sound higher than the $25 service call our competitors claim, but once you are done with their hidden fees and charges it will come out to as much as if not more than $125. Think about it - how can anyone possibly stay in business charging $25 for a licensed locksmith to drive to you in a company vehicle and provide you with a quality lock or cylinder?
The most common (and affordable) way to make keys for your filing cabinet is by giving us the code off the front of the lock (where you put the key into.) This saves the cost of a technician coming to your location to make keys. You can call the key code numbers into our shop and pick them up - usually within the hour.
In a master key system, each lock has its own key that opens only that particular door. There also exists a "master key" that opens all the locks in the system. As you can see above there can be multiple levels of master keys depending on your needs. Master key systems are usually found in commercial environments, but can be applied in a residential situation as well. They are appropriate in any situation where you want to grant access to some doors and restrict access to others.
