They fixed an antique crystal bathroom door knob and installed a new code-key front door lock. Service was fast, friendly, and efficient. This is our second time using Howard Safe & Lock. They have provided stellar service both times on different projects. Highly recommend!

read moreI came across this locksmith by change after leaving MorningStar coffee shop. My story is long and complicated but getting to the point, I needed to get a new BMW key made and a keypad lock on an apartment front door. From my first phone call to paying my bill, every employee I encountered at Howard's Safe & Lock was more than pleasant and helpful. Carla, Mor, and David surpassed my expectation of customer service AND completed my necessary projects in the short two days before I headed out of town. If I ever find myself in need of car key, a house key, or any key in that matter, I will definitely find my way back here. I recommend using this company 100%.

read moreWe used Howard Safe and Lock Co to rekey the locks on our newly purchased home. We were extremely pleased with their flexibility in scheduling, quick turnaround time and great customer service. We also visited their store for some pricing on an in-home safe and we were impressed with their selection and quality. We would whole-heartedly recommend them to anyone needing the service of a locksmith, particularly in the greater Heights area!
