“I called Keyed In and they came over immediately to assess the damage. Unfortunately, my front door handle is a "specialty" handle and had to be ordered. Keyed In worked with me to find the cheapest handle and worked around my schedule to come back to my house (9pm) to do the repairs once the new handle came in. They were professional, friendly and very knowledgeable. I would definitely use them again and recommend them to anyone in need of a locksmith.” — Kory Dubayau

“Great experience, great company. I would highly recommend. I needed a lock replaced on the door leading out to my deck. The door is very heavy and the lock very old and it was stuck. Keyed In came out and said they could replace it. The guy gave me three options - a low price option, a middle price options, and a high price option. He then noticed that the handle on my screen door was broken. I thought I would have to replace the entire door but he said he could fix it for me. So not only did he do a great job with the door but he also saved me from having to buy and entire new screen door. It was a great experience.” — Dorothy Shildes
