Best locksmith ever. Keys come out perfect, the shop is gorgeous, he knows his stuff. He's also really kind and even let me get away with an IOU when I didn't have any cash.

This place does an excellent job with some of the trickier keys the luxury high rises have been handing out. My bldg was trying to charge $30/key and I got the job done here at $6/key. The man in the front was very respectful. Felt good to support a well run, well kept local business.

Update: Yelp has corrected the problem and the contact number above truly is Catanio Lock Co. (201-938-0058). Remember always to check the yellow pages or internet search as well to confirm a business phone contact number.

BEWARE: The Catanio Lock Company Yelp page has been hacked. The telephone number listed here is NOT Catanio Lock Company. This is a fly by night who has no experience and will ask you to pay him in cash. Do not call this number. We are waiting for Yelp to correct this. Call 201-938-0058.
Thank you.

I am very happy with Catanio Lock Company. They came highly recommended to me from locals in Jersey City, so I called them to have a new deadbolt and key lock installed.

Catanio is a small, privately-owned company that has been in business for decades in JC. You may get an answering machine when you call the first or second time, but Rich and/or Greg will call you back within the same day usually. They are both incredibly friendly and knowledgeable and will make reasonable and smart recommendations suited to your needs.

I found it to be really helpful to drop in in person. Both Rich and Greg were there, as well as the shop parrot (!) and I had a great conversation with them while setting up my appointment.

Greg installed the locks for me today and was a pleasure to work with. I felt the pricing was more than reasonable, the service was excellent (Greg was even sweeping up little bits of wood coming out of my door frame and consistently made an effort to keep the work space neat and tidy), and the hardware is exactly what I wanted.

Catanio does not do credit cards, but will take cash or a personal check. Given all the friendliness, excellent service and personalized attention to my situation, I was fine with this.

I would recommend Catanio to anyone in the future. Very happy with my experience!  Thanks, Rich and Greg.

First impression: I have no idea when these guys are open. The hours on yelp don't seem to be up-to-date because I called after the opening time and left a message with no response or return phone call! I walked all the way to the store and nowhere did I see the open hours! I wanted to get a copy of a key, but it seems impossible to get ahold of the owner or find out the hours for this place so I can't give a proper review on customer service which seems to be great -- too bad I can't experience it.

Pro Tip: Downtown True Value (5 min walk from this place) also makes great copy of keys super fast & super cheap. Guys there actually responded to my phone call and were open to create a copy of the key right on the spot.

Really great guys and really helpful. I went here when I first moved to JC to get a few spare keys cut and they were very friendly and told me about the area.  

Fast forward to this year and a new place where I had the locks replaced and got a weird set of keys that no one could replicate. The guys cut the key for me and highlighted where they thought might be an issue. The key would fit but wouldn't turn so brought it back and they measured it with a calipers, did some looking up in a book and made some adjustments and the key worked!!!

Great to see people take pride in their work and willing to help out when the job was a bit harder than normal.

I would highly recommend Catanio.  Greg is flexible and able to work around your schedule.  He's super friendly and even showed us how the inside of a lock works.  He is thorough and genuinely wants to keep customers his safe in their home.  We weren't sure if the lock was working properly and he even stopped by to look at it, free of charge.  Thank you Greg!  Hope we don't have to call you if we lock ourselves out. :)

My building super suggested I go to Catanio Lock when I was renovating my apartment. Rich was very helpful in setting up my locks and getting them all keyed and ready. His prices were very fair and his attitude made me happy to visit him whenever I needed something lock and key related. He even duplicated my mailbox key for me. Now, every time I see Rich on the street he's got a big smile and says hello. His store is a local treasure and Rich has the skills needed for any challenges that come up.

Rich is a good locksmith. Always  does what he says and his prices are in line with other companies. He is right down town so he is able to work around the  area and does not worry about parking. I have used him for many years and have never had a complaint. .

Just like everyone else said good quick friendly service. The address on yelp is wrong though (they moved across the street). So it's 302 grove I believe.

I love these guys.  I went in a few months ago and got a couple keys made and they were very friendly and made them right away and it was cheap.  Then last week I was having an issue with a sliding door in our house and they came and checked it out, figured out the issue quickly and then didn't even charge me.  I would strongly suggest you use Catanio Locks for all your locksmithing needs.

This small shop is a great place to make a backup key for your apartment. The owner is nice and friendly. It took him only a min to make the key copy, and it costed less than $3. In addition, the quality of the key is good, and it fits well in the lock.

I would give Catanio Locks 10 stars if I could!

Rich Catanio is the BEST.  We recently moved into an old townhouse with very cantankerous doors...  He has been amazing at fitting new locks easily and beautifully and is always there to help if you have a problem.  The service is extremely prompt, very polite (a rarity in New Jersey, let me tell you...) and super professional.

Don't go anywhere else if you are locked out, need a key cut or need your locks changed.  These guys are seriously A+

I locked myself out of my apartment and called Catanio Lock Company for help.  Even though they could not break me in, I'm still happy to give them 5 stars, here's why:

1. Quick arrival
2. Extremely nice
3. Stayed and worked on my lock for well over an hour
4. Since they didn't unlock the door, they did not charge me
5. Were careful not to damage anything

Yes, they could have gotten me into my apartment by smashing off the cheapo doorknob, but they didn't push that option after I stated I did not want to break it.  I've dealt with other locksmiths who would just assume rip the door off its hinges if it meant getting the job done quickly and getting paid.  These guys were careful and respectful.  I'll be contacting them to put in a deadbolt.

Support local businesses, these guys are great!

They made copies of keys and they worked.  I think they have a huge selection of key blanks.  Support local.

Couldn't be happier with their service. Greg worked late to be able to meet me when I arrived from the airport after their regular hours. He had the door open in 30 seconds. The price was reasonable. I'd definitely recommend these guys.

Richard is simply the best there is. Excellent work, reasonable prices, completely trustworthy, great guy.

I forgot about the bird. Probably because most of the work Rich did for me was off-site. I was Board President of a condo building in Jersey City. It was a troubled building in a pretty lousy neighborhood. We are talking roof door work, custom gate lock work, mailbox locks, emergency door alarms/locks, etc. Rich was always up for the challenge and never complained about the conditions. His contract with our building led to work at larger neighboring buildings. The feedback from them was the same: Great job. Great price. Great guy. Rich also knows a number of contractors in the building industry. He set us up with a custom iron guy who built security gates for the building. Maybe Rich should bring the bird with him on jobs. That would make for a better story. But seriously, look no further. He's the best.

Initially there was a problem with the lock that was installed, but the shop owner truly went above and beyond to correct the issue. Would recommend!

My home has a keyless entry and the battery died unexpectedly.  My out of town guests came home to find that the lock would not work.  Me being out of town and not able to do anything about it made for a very interesting situation.  Thanks to Yelp, I located Astoria Locksmith and they were at my home in 20 minutes.  They saved my ass and for that, I am extremely grateful!  It wasn't cheap (but I expect that for a 24-hour locksmith) and it sure was better to pay their fee than pay for two hotel rooms.

The technician was extremely polite and everyone was very accommodating.  The locksmith I called prior was very difficult to work with so I'm glad I came upon this one.  Thank you very much, Astoria Locksmith!

They came to get us back into our apartment because it seems the interior mechanics of our lock were broken or worn out over time. They ultimately had to replace the entire lock and all is working fine now.

I thought that I had to replace my lock when I lost my keys. I called this locksmith to have them come to my apartment and replace it. When they asked me what happened, I explained that I had lost my key. With his on-spot necessary equipment, he duplicated and made me another key for my locks. He helped me save on the costs I would have incurred to buy the locks and in installing them. I am very grateful for this great locksmith service.

This locksmith service in saved my job. I had locked myself out the office. I called several other locksmiths but they could not make it in time so I could get to my very important meeting. My friend gave me a recommendation and said that this locksmith service would help me out, as they are always on the move. True to their words, within a few minutes, I had a professional come to the office. He opened the door for me so I could reach my documents and changed the locks just as FAST enough so that I could leave for the meeting. I have never experienced such a fast and efficient locksmith service.

Astoria lock out smith was a friendly and quick service. One of those nights happen to me where I "misplaced" my keys either on the train or the bar I was at. I had to google, a locksmith place to well open my apartment door. As the super of the building was on vacation and my spare kid was all the way in jersey at my cousins house. They came pretty quickly, the rate was fair. I feel like they deal with this level of problem a lot and they are very helpful. I would totally recommend this to anyone in the queens area

I wad reffered by my cousin , and he only mention good things about them.
Me and Lily (my 2 LBS Yorkie) just moved to a new apt in queens, and needed some locks to be replaced.

I called in advance to make an appointment, Adam showed just on schedule - and brought some options for locks with different security levels, so i could pick the best option for me.

Pleasure to work with Astoria locksmith's.
Great Service, Reasonable Price. Will use them again.

The last thing you really want is to get locked out late at night especially in nyc. The fact that they are open 24hrs is great. I wasn't trying to wait hours to get back in my house and they were willing to get to me as quickly as possible. If you're looking for convenience and people that actually care definitely call if you're locked out

My friend lives in Astoria Queens and she was complaining about her home safety. I told her about Astoria locksmith company that had repaired locks in my office. I gave her the contacts and she was so happy about their services that every time we meet, she keeps telling how happy she is that her house is safe. She has since then recommended all her friends to try out Astoria Locksmiths. I would also recommend this company to anyone. Really amazing home lockout service!

I've never had any reason to use a locksmith and never planned on using one but honestly they came in handy! A while back we got locked out our car leaving a Greek spot on Ditmars and they were able to make us a duplicate on the spot. Literally saved us, you can only imagine being trapped there on a weekday !

Great service & nice people

I was just going back home from an office party and it was very late in the night. On reaching to my door, I realized that I had left my keys at the party that was apparently over. Since I live alone, I had to look for a solution.  My spare keys were in the house. I called a friend who gave me information about Astoria Locksmiths that had helped her when she experienced a home lockout. On contacting them, I got an almost instant response and thereafter help. I got into the house as a happy soul.

The most professional locksmiths that I have ever met! I was locked out of my house one day and I called these guys to come help me out. Not only did they come immediately, but they had a great attitude that made me feel safe and comfortable. The price was very reasonable also.

I always come to these guys if I need and copies also.

I would absolutely recommend these guys to anyone who is in need of locksmith services.

Thank you!!

Not the biggest business so it's perfect for those who hates all these white-collar type of things.
We needed a bit more privacy in our room as it is so very expensive to rent the whole apartment - so we decided to change the door lock. Why ? Because your usual stock doorknob can be opened with a plastic card. And I would never trust nobody who i don't know for years (and I would Not advise You to do so as well). So these guys helped me out well - new handle set with keys which haven't broke yet.  
Just do your part of custom ordering - Be precise in the description of a job you want to pay for - just like whenever you deal with Your money (except that ordering a coffee is a less concentration demanding thing than buying a lock).

The technician Paul came to my apartment late at night after me and my girlfriend got locked out. About 15 minutes after my call he showed up and was very friendly and helpful. He went over and tried all the options before eventually drilling into my lock. After getting in he didn't have the right lock combo (at this time it was around 3am) and he showed up early next morning to replace the lock.

5 stars for how quick the technician came, service, and convenience.

I really appreciate the work of the Astoria Locksmith 24 HR Service employees. A few weeks ago when I back home at midnight I realized that my front door  lock stuck and I found something inside it. After a few hours of trying  to open the door I gave up. I called my friends to ask them to host me that night, but instead of these they referred me to the Astoria Locksmith 24 HR Service. They sent me very professional guy, who put a new lock very fast. And it still works perfect.  And surprisingly the service was pretty affordable even night time. Good to know that I have these professional help right away if I need it.

The technician who came to my apartment at 3am because of a jammed locked made me feel extremely uncomfortable. I was alone in the middle of the night and he told me I had nice legs and kept making comments that made me feel unsafe or like he was wasting my time and making up charges. The whole process took about two hours and after he put on a new lock without my permission he "insisted" I pay in cash. I had to walk to find an atm at 4am for $400. He made me wait while he counted it all in front of me. I felt unsafe the whole entire time and slept with a hammer under my pillow because I was so scared he would come back

I am in the process of moving. A week ago I decided to rent a unit at a Uhaul Moving and Storage facility of Park Slope. Thinking, it would make it easier to leave a few items there until after I move and get my new place organized.  
But on the day of the move I misplaced my key. Looked everywhere and could not find them. There was only one option- to call a locksmith. So I did. I guess, when you are in a rush, it is better to get assistance quickly. Harry was very polite, understanding, and patient. I will definetely call him again. Thanks

I forget keys inside my apartment often. Usually I call the super in my building for help. This time our super was not available. I had to ask a neighbour to find a locksmith nearby. I was lucky to find one right away. He was servicing apartment in the building across the street from mine. The service was provided quickly. I am over 80 and can not wait long. Thank you so much. I will recommend you to my friends

Wow! Can't say enough good things about these guys. Got locked out in sheepshead right in the movie parking lot and these guys got a guy out in no time. My car was opened within 10 minutes of arrival. Saved their number in case this happens ever again. Very reliable and responsive company. Thumbs up all the way!

I recently locked my keys in my car while visiting a friend in Brooklyn. I found these guys on Yelp and was super happy I did. They definitely live up to the 5-star hype! The response time was quick and the guy who came out was extremely nice which was much appreciated given how silly I felt for having to call someone out in the first place. I definitely recommend!

I am so grateful to these guys for helping me when I was locked out of my Toyota with my 5 year-old son this past week in Sheepshead Bay. About twenty five minutes after calling them up, Mike arrived and got us back in quickly. We were even able to make it to my son's Tae Kwon Do lesson only ten minutes late! Thank you for resolving this stressful situation quickly and efficiently!

My new go-to locksmith for anything lock/key/hardware related! I came in Sunday looking for two new doorknobs with a lock and key. (Honestly thought this was just a key copying place). My dad and fiancé both suggested I check here locally before heading out to Home Depot. So glad I did! I needed the doorknobs asap, so I was going to settle for a design that he had and was very similar to my current doorknobs but he said he could get the exact doorknobs to match the rest in my house. Michael gave me his personal cell number and I sent him a picture of the doorknob, thinking it would be about 3 days minimum until he got the doorknobs. He texted me the next day and had them ready for me to pick up! Charged me only what he paid (he showed me the receipt) and I was on my way. Later I got home and thought I had the wrong side of the doorknob and texted him (pretty late at night) - Michael responded right away saying that there is only one side of the knob sold and it is reversible. He sent me a video tutorial from YouTube on how to reverse the knob (less than 2 min video, very explanatory and simple). I'm beyond happy with my experience here and I know this will be my spot if I ever need anything Michael carries in his shop!

I bought a car with only a valet key and after I purchased 2 new keys off ebay. I took my car and keys to Safehouse Locksmith & Hardware to reset the ECU and program my new set of keys so I can open the car remotely and start the car.

I was approached by Marion, who told me the job was going to be done in about 10 minutes and for an incredibly affordable price. Marion cut the keys, then went to program everything, he made the process seem simple and although it took us a bit longer than 10 minutes because of the way my car system is set up the job was complete without hiccups. I am very satisfied, I will bring my girlfriend's keys here to be cut and programmed as well. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone.

Came here to get a second car key. Friendly and honestly. Mike followed up with me a few time to let me know that he's at the store.  Will come back again and def. recommend.

Overall , I would say I'm satisfied with Safehouse. I requested a quote on Yelp and Mike responded quickly. His prices were fair and he was very accommodating to my schedule. I took 1 star off because the locksmith Daniel showed up 50 mins late to my 6pm appointment after confirming and calling me he was on his way. Then he called me telling me he was running 20 mins late because of traffic. Ok fine. Then no one showed up until almost 7. I called Mike at the shop and he was surprised. In any case, Daniel showed up and spent an hour replacing my lock. Everything was fine, and Mike even followed up with a phone call 1 week later to make sure everything is working to my expectations. If I ever need a locksmith, I would use them again.

Mike is a certified mogul. My fiancé misplaced her car keys and was frantically looking for them. To make matters worst, we just had a huge storm the day before. I reached out to Mike via yelp and he was extremely responsive. Made the key, drove out to deliver it to us, and even gave us an extra one on the house.

1-10 review? Infinity.

Happy wife, happy life =)

I have a small safe in my basement that I regularly access, at least monthly. When I went to open the safe this weekend, to my surprise, the keypad wasn't functioning. I found this strange since the safe has a "low battery" light that never went on. I tried to open the safe with what I thought was the backup key but was not successful. On Sunday, I was driving out to Long Island on Union Turnpike and noticed that this establishment was open. I went in and the gentleman who greeted me gave me the card of the locksmith who he said wasn't there at the time but who he encouraged me to call. He indicated that the locksmith was expected around 2pm. I called the locksmith, Michael, and explained my issue to him. I told him that the safe was small enough for me to transport to his store. He asked if I could bring it that afternoon but I told him I was on Long Island for the afternoon. He indicated that he would be at the store on Monday afternoon and we should contact each other by phone on Monday. I called Michael at noon on Monday and we agreed to meet at the store at 2pm.  Getting the safe to the store was far more difficult that I had expected, but that was my doing, not Safehouse's. In fact, I'm sure Michael would have been happy to visit my home to look at the safe. I got the safe to Safehouse and met Michael at 2pm. In a few minutes, Michael was able to open the safe. The batteries had leaked preventing the keypad from being used. That explained why the keypad had failed so suddenly. Fortunately, the batteries leaked powder and I was able to clean up the powder and replace the batteries with fresh ones and the keypad worked again! Michael offered to do some research to see if he could arrange to get me a key that would work for the safe. When I brought the safe home, I did a thorough cleaning of the battery compartment and tried the key that I thought was the backup key and, to my surprise, it worked!  I assume that the lock had been jammed and Michael was able to free it up. I called Michael and asked if I could have an additional key made?  He suggested that I bring the key in to his dad who would be better able to make a back up key for the safe. Michael had asked me how I learned of his business and I told him that I saw it on Yelp. I also told him that reviews seemed honest. I was very happy with my experience with Safehouse and would gladly recommend them to anyone.  I really appreciate the fact that I was dealing with the locksmith rather than some contractor.  Great job!  Thanks!

Got locked out of my house and needed to get in. It was freezing cold outside, and on a Saturday evening, but Safehouse showed up in under 20 and was able to pop the lock in under a minute. Couldn't be more thankful for the quick service, especially given that it is a weekend. They were even courteous enough to ask if I have any children with me and if I am stuck outside or if I have somewhere warm to wait. I couldn't recommend a more superb locksmith in this area!

The key got stuck inside the key hole when I was leaving my house to go to work this morning.  I tried all solutions that found online and didn't work.  I found this on Yelp and made a call.  A guy who answered the call told me a lock guy will be in an hour.  The lock guy came five minutes late.  I think it was totally acceptable considering they receive jobs on call.  

He came and took a look and said to me that the cylinder need to be replaced.  He texted someone.  I guess it was someone from Safehouse.  He said to me that would cost $160 for the same brand or $140 for another line of product within the same brand.  Of course I stick with original.  Then he told me that he had to get a new lock and his tool box.  When he came back, he received a text message and asked me if I want to replace the whole lock which cost $225.  Why would I pay for something I don't need?  I told him replace the cylinder would do.   He seemed to agree and started the work.  

He finished in about 20 minutes since there was something not right when the old lock guy installed the lock years ago.  He fixed everything.   Everything seems working fine.  

Also, the guy from Safehouse gave me a call to follow up the service.

The service is good and quite expensive.   I'm happy what I get.  I can leave my house and now to worry anything.

Fast dependable HONEST service. Came in less than 30 minutes. Could have told me I needed a new lock but INSTEAD adjusted and lubricated my existing lock! You dont find such honesty I service people anymore. REDUCED his service charge since it was a simple fix! This is the second time I have used them for a lock problem...and I am 100% satisfied. Won't use any other locksmith anymore. Safehouse is on my speed dial!!

I called Safehouse Locksmith in order to replace an original mortise cylinder that was sticking.
A technician was sent but there was an issue with one of the parts that link with the mortise thus the technician had to return another time.  

I asked for a Multilock cylinder to be put on the mortise lock mechanism BUT, unknown to many, there are many CAM pieces that can go on it, the technician showed me about 20 CAMs that are made for the Multilock cylinders.  

After another week of attempting the get the correct part, Safehouse called me in order to inform me that the part had come and that it was most likely that the issue with the mortise lock would be fixed.  

The technician came and put the cylinder just to find out that the back CAM mechanism was a little off.  He took out a bagful of Multilock CAM parts and the installed another one.  When the mechanism was placed, it the function was PERFECT.  

I would recommend Safehouse Locksmith for your most complex jobs, lots of people out there think that getting a cylinder replaced is just a walk in the park, to get the cylinder and turn the lock to screw it in place, but there are eventualities that can frustrate the most inventive Macgyver types out there.  

Leave your headaches behind and allow the professional people to be in charge of situation.  It will be money well spent and plenty of headaches saved.

this guy is awesome! We got locked out of our apartment and he rescued us! Called another locksmith and they were going to charge us an outrageous price but Safehouse was very reasonable! Mike was very quick to arrive and very quick to get us back in our house. Highly recommend Safehouse to anyone in need of a locksmith. Will 100% only use Safehouse from this point forward!

Came to duplicate some keys and was told one couldn't be duplicated. At first my instinct was to ask if there is another locksmith around but the guy at the counter patiently explained that that key needs a card to go with it and suggested that I ask my landlord for another one. The other keys were done quickly.

Top notch! Nice clean, modern and uncluttered store, super fast at copying keys with reasonable prices. Everyone is very helpful - I was in and out in 10 minutes - they copied 7 keys, then sorted them out and attached them to key rings for me. They definitely know what they're doing.

I came in with a key to my apartment building that I had copied at a different hardware store. Immediately I was told it couldn't be copied and to speak to my landlord. 1. It could be copied because I had it copied before. 2. I don't have a landlord because I own my apartment, which apparently wasn't a good enough answer for them. After being talked down to for 5 minutes, I kindly asked if there was another locksmith in the area, whereupon the man behind the counter scowled "google it" to me. FIND ANOTHER PLACE TO GO!

Best experience with any locksmith or key duplicator ever!

The staff was so friendly that they all deserve five stars. The price is right for key duplicating, also! I'll definitely be back.

Note: this locality is not easy to find if you don't look carefully; it's near the Nomura entrance; a hallway within that entire building.

Fast, easy, simple, polite, quality and low prices!

They said they are open 9am-6pm every day.

To find them, walk on the north side of 49th Street. If you are coming from 9th Avenue, walk past the salad place and make a left into the marble overhang outdoor area. On your left you will see a sign: "Locksmith." 5 minutes later, you are out with a copy of your key.

They also had various key accessories and safes. They have a couple of locksmiths there who were available to help. They were polite, professional and easygoing. Places like this deserve a good review.

Went in to get some keys cut and it was quick, simple and reasonably priced. Not a lot of chit chat but that's not what I wanted or needed either. Also, as a bonus the keys worked perfectly first time which is pretty rare!

Fast, easy service from friendly people. I am glad I found this place!

I had to call to find it, it's sort of tucked into a hallway, but I was helped by a really polite woman who even came out to find me!

I went in and only had to wait a few minutes to get keys made. I bought key rings to go with it and the guy cutting them even put them on my ring for me and it really saved my nails, so thank you!

The prices are fair, they have every key you can imagine and the service is really friendly. It's a great place to have near me!

I needed my locks changed the same day and while they were busy, they went out of their way to accomodate me into their schedule. They changed the upper and lower door locks and cleaned the work area afterwards. I had called around to a couple of different places and their prices are comparative with other companies.

I never imagined I'd be leaving a positive for review for ANY locksmith in NYC. But Irving was truly wonderful. He came to my apartment as scheduled and worked for a solid hour to fix not one but two of my shitty locks, one of which needed a new cylinder.

I've had problems with these locks forever, and this is the first time they actually seem to be fixed. The entire job cost $243, including tax. Not cheap, but less than I've paid locksmiths in the past who didn't repair the problem. And Irving was as nice as can be.

If you live in HK, these guys are the way to go.

Our daughter bought a condo in Jersey City and I offered to find a locksmith to replace the deadbolt. I called the shop a couple of times and spoke with both Jonathan and Tim. Each was courteous and knowledgeable. We set an appointment the same day as closing.
We needed to change the appointment because of a delay.
Tim accommodated our new timeframe. He changed the deadbolt, and also fixed the bent doorframe. He also rekeyed the other lock to match. All work was done quickly. Price was reasonable and as discussed. A very positive experience. Thank you!

Today I locked myself out of my condo unit !! In a panic, I called "A Thorough Locksmith" and in 20 minutes, my Hero arrived!  He was so nice, professional, and quickly fixed my lock. He was also able to preserve the original cylinder so my original keys worked perfectly.  And saved me the cost of a whole new lock set-up !  A family business and available 24x7 , I highly recommend !!!  Great experience  !!!!

Just had a 5 star experience, so had to get on Yelp and write about it!  My husband called ATL, was provided a quote, and in about 1 hour, Johnathan was here changing out our locks.  He was super friendly and did the job pleasantly and quickly.  We asked for 3 keys, he gave us 4.  All around nice guy!

I just purchased a home in Jersey City and wanted to get the doors re-keyed, some locks replaced and prepare for putting august locks everywhere. Tim came out for the same day service call and was able to help bring sanity to the mess of locks and keys that inherited from the previous owner. 10 re-keys, some new locks and a bit of handyman work later I was left with exactly what I wanted and needed. I can't say enough about the quality of workmanship and the the foresight that Tim brought to the table when evaluating and executing on the job I wanted done. Excellent work!

OMG being a real estate agent I CANNOT stress enough on the fact, how important it is for me to have perfect keys cut in one go every single time. These guys! Never failed me yet. Very conveniently located, parking lot is a little 1 min walk from their store, priced a tad more than home depot, who manage to screw up my keys almost every time. I would rather pay more with the guarantee that my keys are always perfect. They also email receipts. Annnd, incase you lost the keys but have the #'s of the cut, they can make a key with that itself. 'Ain't that cool?
My go to guys! Thankyou from Raj the walkableLiving.com realtor :)

Lost my car key so I needed to replace it. Tried to charge me a ridiculous amount. Lowered his price to $45 but didn't guaranty it would work.  Called me 20min before normal closing hours (5pm) and said the key would not work and that my only option would be to get the $150 key. Luckily my car was well parked so I waited till the next day to find another locksmith. Found one who charged me $40 and works great.

From initial contact to completion of the job, Tim and Jonathan were responsive to all my questions and concerns. My complex required a COI prior to commencement of any work, which they were able to supply in advance via e-mail. Once he arrived at my door (exactly at the specified appointment time), Tim skillfully rekeyed my lock quickly. I used to struggle with the old key at times in order to gain access, but after his repairs, the new key worked much more smoothly. The price initially quoted via text was honored and fair. I have no reservations about recommending this locksmith's services for your security needs.

Called A Thorough Locksmith due to a lost car key for a 2005 VW Golf. The staff is very friendly and professional. You can easily tell they knew what they were doing. I had a lot of questions before they started the process and they didn't hesitate to answer any of them. Their timing is reliable. The locksmith, Tim, was able to make a key for my car but unfortunately it was not able to start the car due to issues with programming it, BUT before he started the process they informed me that Volkswagens are tricky to deal with so I give them credit for that. He recommended that I should go to the dealership to get the key programmed and only charged me $50 for everything, which is a deal compared to dealership prices. Overall experience is 5 stars but it's only fair to give 4 since I was not able to leave when everything was done. Although, I would definitely recommend these guys for anybody looking for a trusting locksmith!

Posted to my Hoboken Mommies group on Facebook, but thought it was worth posting on Yelp as well.  Jonathan was great, as was Tim on the phone.  

"Hope it doesn't happen to any of you, but I managed to lock myself out of our house today. I used "A Thorough Locksmith" based in Jersey City and they were wonderful. Here within the hour and done under 10 minutes. I especially appreciate the care the technician took with my outer door as it is supposed to be "unpickable" and instead of heading straight for the drill, he spent a little extra time and was able to pick the door open, without having to bend the frame to jimmy the lock, or drill out the lock. They also do car locks. May you never need them, but the service was great, friendly, and reliable if you find yourself locked out, and the cost seemed to be on par with what one can expect. They definitely service Jersey City, Hoboken and Union City. I'm sure other areas of Hudson county as well."

I locked myself out and was pissed! I called them based on their Yelp reviews and proximity to my home. The guy who answered the phone was great. He told me the cost and how long they would take to get here.  It was very reasonably priced. The guy worked quickly and made sure to check my key to make sure it still worked after he picked my lock. He called the office to charge my credit card and I was immediately texted the receipt from Square. These guys are professionals!

I made sure to add them to my contacts.

I came here since I need a mailbox key made and they don't carry this type in many hardware stores. They are located next to a dealership so you need to actually be looking for it if not you will miss it. I came and the guy working there was very friendly and helpful. He explain how he didn't have the exact key but could make me one that should work and if it didn't to come back and he would get me a refund. I thought that was a fair deal but I was very lucky the key worked and I didn't have to return.

We needed to get all our locks replaced as one of our keys was lost by a contractor working on our home. I called A Thorough Locksmith and was able to speak to someone immediately. I not only was able to go through the issues but able to upgrade to a keyless entry at a great price! There honesty during this process was amazing. I was able to text a few pictures of the locks so that they had all the information they needed. When Jonathan came by it was also a friendly honest experience. He had an opportunity to upset me due to a door issue that I had. Instead he worked around it and was able to use the deadbolt that was lesser in price. I am very happy with the service and the total client experience. I highly recommend!

AMAZING!!! After my super was not able to get my door open I called these guys - I was not disappointed.

To start, they are very transparent. Before I hung up the phone he made sure I knew their prices and that I was ok with them. He said he would arrive between 30-45 minutes and was here in 20! What I really appreciated was that he made sure to try and pick my lock first rather than just destroy it because he didn't want me to spend more money than was necessary. After a few tries the lock was open!

Great experience and would highly recommend their services to anyone!

These guys don't "monkey" around! (I bet they've never heard THAT before.) I needed 5 keys made, and I was out of here in no more than 5 minutes. At $2.50 each, and at this kind of speediness of service, you can't go wrong. One of the keys was a brolic-looking one, and was $4 to make, but the guy even offered to copy it into a different size to maintain the pricing. Really appreciated the extra mile, and glad to bring all my key making business here.

These guys are amazing!! I am always scared about locksmiths cause I have heard some crazy stories. I am so glad I found them through yelp trusted the reviews and went in for a spare set of keys. I was in and out in under 5 mins but I wish I. Oils have stayed longer and chatted with them cause they are  hilarious. The guy even gave me a different color key for my front door!! Amazing above and beyond service. Yea I cant believe in this excited over a set of spare keys. It it's been on my to do list forever and if I had found these guys sooner I could have saved myself a lot of shame.

I've had them make key copies for me for years but recently had them put new locks on my apartment door. They were able to do it while the door was being painted during a hallway renovation, which meant that the installation was very clean and attractive. They were prompt, efficient and courteous. Jeff knows a lot about his field so he's interesting to talk to. Yoel is careful and explains what he's doing. The shop has a display board with a lot of traditional NYC hardware on it, so instead of talking about "that thingie" you know what the proper terminology is. These guys are really solid.

After calling a few locksmiths around midtown, I tried monKeys and was relieved to hear that they could make a particular type of mul-T-lock key.  The guy on the phone was very pleasant and assured me he could make the key immediately as soon as I arrived with my key card and quoted me the price which was less expensive than my locksmith downtown.  Later when I arrived he was just as genial in person.  He made the key and rang up my credit card in less than five minutes - a great experience.

The lock on my apartment broke and monKeys sent someone in about an hour. He immediately looked into the problem, told me what was wrong and how he could fix it. I ended up needing my entire lock replaced, and it was $350 plus tax. I'm not sure how that compares elsewhere but I was desperate so of course went through with it. Service was fast, friendly and professional.

I had Monkeys install a deadbolt for my apartment two years ago. The other week, the deadbolt broke and I called Monkeys to see if they could fix or replace it (potentially for a discount since it had only been two years). I left a message on Sunday and then called again on Thursday. I explained what happened to the man I spoke with and asked why no one had returned my call. He began yelling at me loudly that it wasn't their problem and that they don't do anything for free (or a discount) and then told me to go somewhere else. I love supporting small businesses, but I expect to receive the same respect that I give them. I didn't expect a discount (but thought I might as well ask!) and certainly would have had them come to fix the lock, but now am definitely going somewhere else.

MARIO was our life saver. We accidentally locked ourselves out this afternoon, and couldn't get back in the apartment. We are going to go on 3 week vacation from tomorrow, and our vacation would have been jeopardized if he didn't come right away with his toolbox and open the lock. It was only one hour before the shop closes when I rushed in there, but he was friendly and professional. Thank you very very much. If you had a urgent lock-out situation, you should visit this locksmith or call for MARIO.

I've been going to this family run business for more than a decade and have always had courteous, speedy, and professional service. Today, I worked with Wilson who went above and beyond in educating me on options based on my needs, and helped me narrow down the choices to land on a great solution to secure my stuff. Thanks guys and keep up the great work!

Been a long time customer of SOS and have always had a good experience with them. Their locksmiths are all friendly and knowledgeable. They were a big help today buying two Medeco cylinders and getting them keyed together for my parents apartment. I come out of my way from Queens just to go to SOS for their expert service.

Really a 4+.
That SOS has survived in Manhattan so long speaks volumes about its services. I recently moved and SOS helped me move my old Medeco deadbolt and faceplate--items that were well-made but ultimately discontinued by Medeco--from the old flat to the new flat. Installer Steve took his time to properly transfer the lock/plate and was pleasant while doing so. Just be mindful that the store will be closed on virtually all Jewish holidays, just like another great store called B&H Photo. [end]

Will never use again. Service provider showed up without the right parts the first time but told me he'd have dispatch call me to reschedule when parts came in. I was never reached out to by their dispatch.  After me calling twice, finally was able to get on the books for a morning appointment TWO WEEKS after the initial attempt to fix my lock.  Today was finally the day for the needed repairs and at the close of my 9-10am called dispatch to see about an eta only to be told "you said before noon."  While I did say I needed an appointment to be COMPLETED by noon when scheduling I was given a service time window and no apology for their inability to meet that window.

Mario did an excellent job picking the locks on one of our office doors and a fire safe. He then helped us get our office doors onto one master key system. Excellent service, FAST!

Lifesavers!  We locked ourselves out (new lock, long story) on a Saturday, and needed help fast!  We called SOS, since the office was close to our apartment, and although we needed to wait about 40 minutes for the technician to get to us, they let us know how long we would need to wait, and their estimate was accurate.  The technician, Mario, was very helpful and personable, worked quickly, and was persistent with our stubborn lock.  He got us back into our apartment, obtained a new lock for us, installed it, and cleaned up after the job.  Not only that, but the job cost less than we expected.  Thanks, Mario!

This is by far the best locksmith and key shop in the city. They always make any key I bring and never have I had an issue. I used them a few months back to install a lock in my apt in brooklyn: the worker was super polite and did an amazing job. Will definitely use these guys for all my lock and key needs !!

Went out for a run on the Westside Hwy only to find out I lost my keys somewhere between 45th and 4th Street, SMH. So now it past 12am and SOS came to the rescue.

This place is the perfect example of a well run customer focused local small business. The people who work here really care and want to help you solve your lock and key issues. They went above and beyond - including refusing to accept payment - until we got it all working. I can't say enough good things about SOS - so much better than a big box chain. Go and patronize SOS, they've earned it.

I would give negative stars if I could. I was locked out yesterday and I called SOS. The dispatcher sent a guy named  Ronin who could not get my door open in three hours despite drilling 3 holes through the cylinder, scratching my wood door, destroying the brass plate, and giving me excuses about why he could not open the door. Panicked, I walked a few blocks over to the SOS storefront to tell the locksmith over there what was going on. He was kind enough to walk back to my apartment with me and he saw what was going on and had to tell  Ronin what to do to get my door open -- he didn't know he had to push the bolt back -- and as soon as the guy from the store was supervising, the door was open in 5 minutes! But I now need need a whole mortise lock because Ronin destroyed mine when I should have only needed a cylinder. I didn't want Ronin touching my door anymore 3 hours and unable to do what is one of the most basic jobs a locksmith gets called to do. I hope SOS makes good on this outrageous incompetence and terrible -- I can't even call it this --- service. I would suggest consumers demand to see a locksmith license if you call these people. Be really careful if calling for a lockout. They seem to farm the weekend and after hours work out to a third party. Read other reviews for more about this.

I've been going to SOS Locksmith for almost 15 years now and they're always quick, professional, and courteous. Besides using them as the locksmith for my building, they also just recently had to drill a lock to enter an apartment and replace the lock and it was done so quickly and without a mess. They definitely should be your go-to locksmith for any of your locksmithing or security needs.

Hey there New York's this is the shop to visit got locked out of my house in Brooklyn and gave them a call . They came to me so fast and got the job done . The boss guy was so down to earth and his workers made me feel so comfortable . Wouldn't call no one else

Was able to catch "Guy" at the shop today. I've called prior and each time "Guy" answered the phone. He said he'll only be there for one hour, but luckily when I was in the area, he was just going in to open shop for that said hour. I caught him right outside the store unlocking the door when I arrived. Told guy what I wanted and he is happy to help me out. He even took the time to answer and explain every question I have. He give me recommendations on measurements to get the proper mortise lock I'm asking about instead of finding all ways to sell me the item first. I was also there to purchase a Mul-T-Lock single cylinder dead bolt. At first I asked for the captive one, he have configured it and explain everything to me except when it's time to pay, I found it too expensive and want to change out for the single cylinder non-captive version which is like $100 cheaper. "Guy" did not show any sign of disappointment or unhappiness, instead he happily went to the back of the store and got me the non-captive version. Re-configured the lock for my need, show me all items included and answer more questions I have. He was the only one in the store today due to the winter storm. He is happy to answer all my question, took time to explain the lock and installation procedures. No up-selling or pressure to purchase. Will come back again when I need to get the Mul-T-Lock mortise cylinder.

CHOOSE ANOTHER LOCKSMITH THESE ARE SCAM ARTISTS. Pay attention to the negative reviews. I Called this company and like other reviewers they never said there would be a fee just for coming by and giving an estimate even though I repeatedly asked them over the phone how much would it cost. When they arrive they will announce a random price just for coming by weather you use their services or not. If you have an issue with them scamming you they will hurl racist insults and continue to demand payment. There are thousands of actual professional locksmiths in NYC so stay away from these people.

These guys gave me the best price for a quick cylinder switch. The locksmith was super polite and considerate as well as punctual and communicated very clearly with me throughout. I have used other locksmiths in the past who rip you off and overcharge and of the 4-5 other locksmiths I called, these guys had the most competitive pricing. HIghly recommend

I accidentally locked myself out of my bedroom. It's a push lock on the inside with key entry on the outside. I called these guys and got a quote of $125. They showed up and didn't even attempt to unlock the door. Instead they explained they couldn't pick that kind of lock and drilled a hole into my door knob. You know, maybe they can't but there sure seem to be a lot of folks on YouTube who can. But hey, they door was opened.

Next comes the billing. When I called for the quote they didn't mention it was 65$ just to get them out there PLUS $125... But since they drilled my door open they bumped that $125 to $185...we're now at $250. Of course there's tax to use a credit card so grand total was $272.

Three stars  because I get to sleep in my bed tonight thanks to them.

If you're going to scalp me at least be straight up about it on the phone. My advice- negotiate cost when your locksmith arrives and don't be afraid to call an alternative if they can't pick the lock.

Arthur and his crew showed up really quickly on a Sunday evening and was able to replace my deadbolt lock really quickly within ten or fifteen minutes.

He also suggested that I didn't need to replace my original lock because it wasn't entirely broken. But I told him that I'd rather upgrade to a sturdier Segel lock that he recommended.

He was honest with pricing and the lock works great. He also said I could text him if anything was wrong with the lock.

Thanks for helping me and I definitely recommend him to anyone who needs a locksmith!

Thank you!!

Really phenomenal service, in terms of scheduling and workmanship.  I mistakenly booked an appointment on President's Day, when my building was closed for repairs.  Arthur didn't even blink at this fact and simply said he'd come again the following day.  He even refused to accept $20 for making him come out unnecessarily that day.

Next day, Arthur was in continual contact regarding timing when he was delayed a bit, and came over ASAP. His work was excellent, and he once again didn't flinch when the work appeared more difficult than he'd figured.  In addition, Arthur is incredibly personable and a pleasure to work with.  He stayed until I was absolutely satisfied w/ everything, telling me to just call if there are any problems and he would come back right away.

This is the kind of service you don't see too often anymore, and it was a pleasure to work with him and NYC Locksmith Expert.  Highly recommend for anyone requiring locksmith service in NYC!!!

I had a wonderful experience when I needed new locks moving into a new apartment. Affordable and professional. When I locked myself out of my apartment a month later, I immediately called NYC Locksmith Expert again.

After an unpleasant experience with the employee who came to my apartment for the second visit, the owner immediately responded by refunding excess charges.  Arthur is incredibly responsive to phone calls and happy to help in any way he can.  He even paid a home visit to make sure everything was going smoothly.  I highly recommend this service!!

After calling their number, they showed up in 10 minutes. The technician was very professional and had all the appropriate tools for the job. They took 20 minutes to get the job well done and 2 days later I got a call from the owner (Eric) to follow up about the service. Highly recommended, they are true experts. :)

Warning: these guys are complete scam artists! They will raise their quote after they've done the work. Also add random fees like a service fee on top of installation fees. Do not hire them! You will regret it! No ethics and completely overcharged. Yikes.

Incredible service! I was locked inside my apartment & had to take apart the whole lock to get out. I called NYC Locksmith and within an hour they showed up at my door on a Sunday! Not only was the service fast and well done, I was told up front of all the possible outcomes and costs. The locksmith was will to try everything in order to save on costs before replacing the whole lock.

Luckily the lock was able to be fixed in the cheapest way!

I would definitely recommend!

I don't know how this place has 5 stars. If I could give 0 stars, I would. Oddly my lock got jammed and I got locked inside my apartment. They sent someone, and then started drilling and doing other ridiculous things. Only to say in the middle it's going to cost more than $500 including service charge. They didn't ask before they started work. Management lowered it to $240 cash $260 credit. But that scumbag of a locksmith ended up charging me $280. Oh and the icing on the cake: 2 weeks later, I'm locked in again, and they want to charge me for sending someone out to fix the lock THEY DIDNT INSTALL CORRECTLY.  Not enough bad things to say about this place.

11/4/2015
I called and asked for a locksmith, they said they would send someone to "give me a quote". Two men showed up, assessed the lock and said it would be $225 for the service. I declined, then was able to get into my apartment with help from my neighbor. They then tried to charge me a "service fee" for the quote of $140. I told them I wouldn't pay, they then moved the "service fee" to $60. There was never any service. Yes, I realize they came to my assistance, but this should be mentioned when I placed the call. Ridiculous. Extremely rude. Would never use them again.

A guy named Tom came by quick! He arrived just 15 minutes after we called. Our problem was we locked the keys to the safe at our new business, Classic Man Barber Lounge, inside the safe. Tom listened patiently to our complaints of how not having the keys to the basement (which are also in the safe) hinders us from doing regular operational tasks. Tom offered solutions on how we could get inside the safe as well as how we could get duplicate keys. Unfortunately, because of our type of safe we only had the option of damaging the safe. We felt it would be best to contact the manufacture to see if they could help before making that decision and/or at the very least buy a replacement safe.

Although, we didn't do business with Tom we wish we could have. Such a great personality. He  laughed with us, Joked with us. Teased our music and told us stories in such a short time. Hey Tom, if your reading...You've found your new barbershop, family, home.

Received an initial quote for $95 for a simple cylinder change. After originally scheduling an appointment at 4PM, the locksmith shows up an hour late and tries to charge me $245. I call back the phone number and talk to the "manager", angry that the price increased 2.5x. After making a big deal, the locksmith finally accepts $95, begrudgingly does the work (in under a minute for a cylinder change) and then storms out. Would highly recommend looking for another locksmith. This place clearly tries to rip off its customers if they can.

I went in on a Tuesday afternoon looking to get the key to my building and the key to my apartment copied, I went to a bunch of different places in Brooklyn and no one would even copy my key so I was really relieved when they were able to copy them. The keys were copied by Eddie he was really kind and helpful. Unfortunately, that night when I tried to unlock my building door the key didn't work so I went back the next day. This time I was helped by a man who's name I didn't get but he was extremely helpful they fixed the issue and gave me a key that worked. If I need any more keys copied I will be coming here because of the friendly staff.

A real neighborhood business. Helped me out of a HUGE jam with suggestions that worked, offering their services at a price but said why waste $ when you can do it yourself. I call that citizenship. So refreshing in a Manhattan that has turned into"whats in it for me".
Thank you R B D I will certainly call upon you when I need a new lock and actually pay for your work.
Kindness is infectious.

Fast, friendly, affordable with a big selection of key accessories AND they even put on those pesky color-coded key "caps" for me. So great! ALSO: These guys are legitimately located on Mulberry Street, so when you call them as a locksmith in the neighborhood you KNOW they're coming from 5 minutes away, not from some other borough. Don't bother with those SHADY locksmiths with fake addresses that come up on Google... call these guys. They're for real.

Stay away from this vendor at all costs. They are sneaky and  underhanded.

They installed a buzzer system for me in Nov 2013. In the summer the buzzer malfunctioned, would not stop buzzing. I called them to take a look--we thought it was covered under the warrantee so we didn't ask for a quote. When the Eric arrived it took him less than a minute to find and fix the problem (a wire had come loose). He called back to the office and told my wife that it was not covered under the warrantee and would cost $95! My wife didn't want to pay him without consulting me so she asked him to send me a bill.

It gets worse. So I never get an invoice or a bill--instead they charged me $212 on the credit card that I used for the Nov 2013 installation. So we go from covered-under-warrantee, to $95, to $212. We never got an invoice or explanation for the $95 let alone the $212. And even worse they charged the card they had on file from the earlier purchase without informing me! (Which I didn't think would be possible but according to the credit card company it's allowed but just bad customer service!)

Stay away, stay away. Happy to provide more details if anyone is interested.

I needed a lot of keys made and Eddie was my guy. Never met the dude before but he acted like one of my uncles at a family party telling jokes and sharing stories. He made the process fun and I would definitely recommend him for all your key making needs!

I accidentally locked myself out of the apartment tonight and I called Eric and he had me back inside in no time at all! I can't say enough good things about the company, really, these days it's hard to come across good businesses, ESPECIALLY WITH LOCKSMITHS but I know where I'm taking (and referring) all my key and lock queries.

Thanks, Eric!

Yakov's prices were the best of the three locksmiths I called - they were reasonable and fair. He was very responsive and answered messages promptly. And most importantly, when he showed up he was very competent. The man knows his stuff! He didn't just repair the broken latch on my door, he reinstalled the knob so that it was more secure than before.

I asked him about installing a deadbolt on another door in the house. I was worried about finding a deadbolt that matched the finishes of the knobs. He researched and found a matching deadbolt that was inexpensive and secure. Once again he not only did a great job with the deadbolt, but noticed that one of the plates on the knob was backwards, and also that the latch wasn't fully catching so the door could be pushed open with just a little force. He fixed all that, at no extra charge, and did a great job with the deadbolt too.

Very happy with him, will use him again for any locksmith work. Highly recommended.

PAY $50 TO BREAK YOUR LOCK.

You spend $50 for the man to come (although quickly) to unlock the deadbolt with a lock pick kit you can buy yourself with a technique you can teach yourself through online videos.

Save your money and get a kit and learn. It will save you money... and the follow up money you will have to pay once Yakov comes.

Here is where the fun part about Yakov comes in... he broke my deadbolt lock in the process of unlocking it and refuses to fix it but even better, he refuses to acknowledge that he broke it.

So essentially, I paid $50 for Yakov to come to my house in twenty minutes to BREAK my deadbolt lock so I can get in.... so I can pay to have it fixed.

At least acknowledge that you broke the lock.  

This is Brooklyn and now my front door cant lock.

Thank you Yakov for breaking my deadbolt lock.

As a young woman in her early twenties, I feel entirely safe now.

He did not stop until the locks he installed for me were functioning smoothly and effortlessly. We had purchased our own locks and he didn't seem bothered by that at all. He was professional and knowledgeable on the phone, giving me a quote without hesistation. When he finished the work, he honored the price he told me. I had called other locksmiths that had good reveiews on Yelp before reaching out to Yakov. They were surprisingly very rude, overpriced and they didn't  seem interested in helping me. I had planned on scheduling the work to be done on the next day but Yakov was willing to come to me the same evening without a problem. I'd refer him to others and use him again.

Got locked out of my apt and called Y&B Locksmith. He showed up in less than 10 minutes, and opened my door in less than 1 minute. Cost was very reasonable as well. Would highly recommend.

Called first to inquire about duplicating a high security key. The man who answered asked some pointed questions to help decipher my key type and whether they could do it, the cost, etc. The hours displayed online weren't accurate, but I was informed that the locksmith is connected to a copy shop next door that is open til 8:00 and he told me they'd be able to duplicate my key. I went and they did at a lower price I was quoted at another key duplication place in the area. It is not a polished establishment, per se--small, older and buzzing with various services inside commensurate with the feel of other Jewish establishments in the neighborhood. But there was order to the chaos and the shopkeepers addressed me very quickly and with courtesy when I entered. Diverse clientele all with a friendly and satisfied neighborhoody air. This will be my go-to for key duplication in Crown Heights. Oh, make sure you bring the card that goes with your high security key.

Wesley came and re-pinned my 3 car door locks in a quick and painless manner.

Friendly, great customer service, good work ethic, and on time. I definitely recommend Hudson Locksmiths for any locksmith related needs.

Great service. I had lost the only copy of my car key and these guys had me moving my car within a couple hours. The price was fair, and the job was quick and easy.

Great locksmith! Amazing service!!! Called and had a person by my house within an hour. Changed my lock, gave me extra keys so that my wife and I had a few to share. Made us feel comfortable and safe. Made my entire experience a pleasure and would definitely recommend him to everyone!

Awesome service! Shai arrived within minutes of my evening emergency call and completed two lock replacements in under 15 minutes. The best part was that the cost was very reasonable. I absolutely reccommend Hudson Locksmith - especially in an emergency.

Shai came to my house because I was unable to open 2 safes. One safe he was able to charge from the outside so that the safe did not need to be drilled. He then instructed me in how to change the combination & be sure that it worked well. He also provided us written material on that safe. There also was a gun safe at home we had purchased but the prior owner neither provided the combination, key or manual. He was able to drill out the old lock and replaced it with a new keyed one. He also showed us how to reset the safe if we ever wished to use a combination. Shai was a pleasure to deal with. He was very knowledgeable & seemed to enjoy explaining each step along the way. We were very satisfied and will not hesitate to use Hudson Locksmiths again.

He was amazing .After my friend locked us out of my house, Hudson Locksmith literally showed up at my home in 5 minutes! They  were very affordable and professional.  I will definitely use them again if I end up in a jam .

Im not the type to write reviews but this time i decided to make an exception. I was locked out of my apt and called for a quit quote. They told me 15 fee and 35+ to open the lock. They got here and they told me it was going to be 120 as if my lock was something special. I negotiated down to remove the 15 fee, shook on it and he opened it with what it looked an air bag. It literally took 30 secs. I asked what would be different for a lock that inly cost 35 bucks and the guy just gave a slick smile. Not sure if he was even listening. I doubt i will need this type of service again but this felt like a bait and switch. Total rip off. This type of service is usually for emergency so i recommend shopping around and not use this place

I called Hudson Locksmith after calling several other locksmiths to get my apartment rekeyed. They had reasonable prices and was able to help me the same week. Shai was responsive and knew a lot about safety of the different locks. He even helped me install another lock that I bought from Home Depot. If I ever need a locksmith again, I would totally call them again.

Ya know... getting locked out... in the rain... not ideal. This guy was great! Arrived within 20-30 minutes. Got me back in my apartment and price was reasonable.

Nice guy, really fast arrival (under 7 minutes) and he opened the lock pretty quickly (I may need to consider better locks...).  Price was fairly reasonable, though admittedly I've never before needed a locksmith so have no idea what the usual after 9pm rate is.  Overall very good and courteous.  I'd recommend.

Hudson locksmith got me out of a huge ordeal. Halloween night my purse got stolen at a party. I borrowed my friend's phone and we found Hudson locksmith. the guy came super quick and got me into my apartment where i had my spare key. they came within 25 minutes at 4 am and gave me a pretty fair price and didn't charge extra even though it was the middle of the night. i would use them again!

Elite is a solid company. I had a few locks to change and called these guys (on Sunday morning)  based on a recommendation from a friend. They were polite, professional, well priced and did a great job. Thanks again Gadi, you did a great job, would recommend to anyone!

Ben was super helpful and even though I had no control card to copy my key from, he was very accommodating and directed me to their other location on the UWS, giving me the time and location and contact people to reach. He also talked to them beforehand and once I got there they had expected me to visit and understood what I needed. Even though the UWS location was not close to the Kips Bay location I originally wanted, the other locksmiths I called on the weekends didn't have the machinery to make the copies and/or were not fully open on Saturday. The prices were really decent ($10 a key for the MulTLock) plus tax, and I made 2 copies in under 5 minutes. Thank you!

Ben was very helpful when another locksmith couldn't get the job done. Swung by our office to see what the problem was and advised on what to do next. The lock/key was fixed in just a couple days for a lock/key that was trickier than normal. Great communication too. Would def recommend.

Seriously great customer service and reasonably priced. I really appreciated Ben's kindness and respectfulness when he came to open the door to my apartment after I locked myself out. When I called Elite Locksmith I really needed some clarity about what kind of a price range I could expect to have to pay and whereas other businesses told me it could be between $30 and $300 (a fairly WIDE range), Ben asked me a few questions about the type of lock and door I had, and gave me a straight answer that I felt like I could trust. Then he arrived in 25 minutes and quickly and surely opened the door. I had been locked out for over 24 hours before I turned to a professional service and I was just so thankful for his skill and professionalism. It was a rough day that ended in triumph because of this business!! Thanks so much, Ben.

Elite Locksmith is a prompt, professional, and very friendly company. I had a problem with my lock and as soon as called them with my problem, they were at my store the next morning and fixed it within 30 minutes, Love them and I totally recommend them! Thanks Ben!!

I locked myself out and researched several locksmiths in my area. I was impressed by Elite's reviews and website. The reviews were great and the website pointed out typical locksmith scams to look out for. I decided on Elite and my decision was right! They gave me a reasonable estimate and came very quickly. Ben was so obviously experienced and beyond professional. He came within 30 minutes, the bill was reasonable and Ben was a pleasure to work with. I will be recommending him to everyone I know, and putting him on several Coop Building Manager's vendor lists (I work in construction).
I have to say, this has been one of my most successful experiences with repairs.
Everything went perfectly.

I broke my car key fob. The key was in great condition so I just bought the key fob on Amazon which came with a key. I just needed to switch the keys but didn't have the right tools. I called Elite Locksmith to see if they can do it and sure enough they did it fast and easy. Very happy with the service and price.

Fast, professional, and top notch service. We are glad we trusted fellow yelpers in finding Elite Locksmith. At a cold breezy afternoon, our clinic's door will not close. They came to our clinic soon after we called, checked the lock, evaluated the problem, started to work in outdoor weather in the 30s. You can sense the confidence when someone knows what they are doing, later on, we found out the guy has been working in the industry for 20 years. After hours of work and perfection, the door was back to work, better than before. No noise from the slam, lock works perfect, neat finish. BTW, his name is Ben, great guy,  I would highly recommend him to anyone residential or commercial!
Update 3/30/2015 Ben came by today, follow up with a minor problem, he helped adjust speed of closing the door. Very responsible customer service.

Getting your door opened is expensive (~$120), but they were here in 10 minutes and had me inside in another 5 minutes.

Ben was very professional and I would happily use them again.

Super fast, courteous and friendly service! Got locked out of my apartment and Ben was there within a half hour and replaced my mutli-lock and standard lock within the next half hour. He even re-adjusted the latch on my door which has been slightly misaligned for years. Now I can open and closed my door without having to push or pull on it!

Felt like get scammed. They actually sent a guy from another company instead of Elite Locksmith to open your door. You paid ridiculously high fee to feed two companies. Don't call them to open your door.

I was locked out of my apartment. Called them to ask if they could send a staff to open the lock. The lady on the phone told me the total cost started from $60+, I agreed to the price since it was pretty reasonable.

Then a young man who could barely speak English showed up. He told us the service fee was $59, plus drilling the lock cost another $99. I had to agree to it because it was really late at night, I couldn't find another locksmith. After he drilled the lock, I asked why he didn't replace the lock, he then told me it cost $85 to replace the lock. So, in the end, it cost me $240 to open the door and got a new lock!! The receipt he gave me said he was from "Omega Lock & Security" that located at 1562 3rd Ave (between 87 & 88 street).

I lost my keys and called Elite Locksmith to unlock my door on a Sunday morning. They gave me a great price and were extremely friendly and helpful. Got my door open without any problems and even helped me with a spare key that hadn't been working properly. So happy I called, I highly recommend them.

I was locked out of my apartment. The key was inside. Instead of drilling out my lock ben was able to open the door without drilling. The guy was good and only charged me $95. I called another lock company and they wanted $125 to drill the lock and another $85 for a cylinder and another $45 to install it.

I didn't realize it was cash only for inside jobs.  So good thing I had cash on me.

Service was nice and quick.  They have a Locksmith Cat, Panther, who is super sweet.  He's as much of a reason to go here as the good service & product!

The staff was friendly; however, the product was not on par. I had three keys replicated - only one wound up working. Each replicated key cost $5.95. The two that didn't work had melted metal curving over top the corners, which of course would not allow me to open the door.

It's really not worth going back to get my money.

I didn't actually end up needing the locksmith to come out because I was able to get my building guys to do it for me but Ben at the office was so kind and helpful. The locksmith was already on his way so I paid a small service fee which I absolutely did not mind since both of the individuals helping me were so kind. Thank you guys!

They were very kind and professional. I called and they came quick. Nick (for short) was very kind and more then fair. He called when he was running late (which he wasn't) and did a great job. He was fast (under 45mins). I don't give 5 stars check my reviews. They definitely deserve it. Thank you. highly recommended

They do come quickly and they get the job done. Probably more than I wanted to pay but to have a lock taken out and a new one installed all in an hour from the time I was locked out is pretty good.

Really happy with my service. I just needed my deadbolt on my door changed, and I selected them because they quoted me less than the other 2 locksmiths I called. The manager not only gave me a direct number to reach him, but I also received a call the day of to confirm. They gave me no problem when I actually needed to push my appointment back 30 min.

The technician came at 12:30pm on the dot (we actually saw him waiting in his car outside a few minutes before the appointment). He was in and out in 23 minutes.

My boyfriend had his apartment broken into. Actually, totally disturbing, someone broke in and LIVED there while he was away for the holidays. He came home at 2am to find everything ransacked and genuinely, someone having moved in. Needless to say, the locks had to get changed ASAP. I quickly yelped locksmiths in the area, and Brooklyn Atlantic popped up. Not many 24h locksmiths are actually 24 hours - I was so relieved when Sonny picked up. He was really nice and said he would be there in 20m and could provide a free estimate before beginning any work. He even called to let us know when he was nearby. He came upstairs, evaluated the locks, told us what our options were, and had everything installed within 1 hour of calling him. He was great to work with, and I am so very grateful he was able to help us out. We really needed that reassurance and customer service at that moment, and Sonny came through. Definitely recommend.

I just had a wonderful experience with Brooklyn Atlantic Locksmith. One of my locks wasn't working well. I called and a very nice young man name Ben was very helpful. He sent Paul who was great as well. Fast quality service, price was right too (I checked). Highly recommended!

I got locked out my apartment the other day and couldn't get my friend to drop off my spare key cause he was out of town. I did a search on phone and found this company wasn't sure if they come out to The Bronx but they did in 30 minutes they were here and got me in my apartment just in time for me to get to work on time. They're Quick, reliable and affordable. Now I have them saved on my phone just in case.

This must be the worst locksmith ever. They installed 2 locks and both do not work. When I asked them to come back, they said they were busy and would not work nights or weekends even though they call themselve a 24 hour locksmith. They had an attitude and did not come back to install new locks even thought i called them several times. I am thinking about filing a complaint against the. They are horrible!

In need of a locksmith at 2AM, I stood outside the door to my apartment, calling one locksmith after another.  I started to panic because none of the so-called 24 hour locksmiths were picking up.  I was relieved when someone at Brooklyn Atlantic picked up the phone and said a locksmith would be there within 15-20 minutes.  The locksmith arrived right on schedule and "broke in" to my apartment.  Upon opening my door, he asked to see my ID and a piece of mail that I'd received at my home address, to verify that I had a legal right to enter the apartment.  I hadn't thought of the importance of taking this precaution and I'm glad that the locksmith did.  Given the hour and my dire need to get into my apartment, I expected to pay dearly for the locksmith's services and I sure did: $272, which didn't even cover the cost of replacing the broken lock.  But I'm not really complaining because for a while there, I was convinced that I'd have to sleep outside my apartment in the hallway.
