We realize we're not the only locksmiths in
Western North Carolina, but we hope that
we're the only one that you call!



Today's locksmith does much more than just come to the rescue when you're locked out! We can evaluate your existing hardware for proper operation and compliance with current safety codes; rekey your new home or office for greater safety and peace of mind; service antique locksets so your vintage house still looks vintage; sell you, service or open a safe, new or old; install access control systems; create and execute a master system for commercial or residential buildings.


Out of concern for safety and security, many people today are opting for higher security locksets than in the past. Features such as multiple locking mechanisms and a higher level of key control make our Mul-T-Lock and ASSA lines of high security locks and keys the right choice for many businesses and homes.


If you're looking for a safe to hold guns, jewelry, or other possessions, shouldn't you look for one that will truly protect what you put in it? You can find less expensive safes than the American Security ones we carry, but you'll be hard-pressed to find better ones.
