Good Locksmith in SF bay area

If you need to re-key your locks and live in SF bay area, try Tom Apple from Long's Locksmith in Berkeley.

He can cut key from codes (if you have) or re-key on the site.

I had him re-key for the trunk from code. Code was not correct and he ended up rekey from blank key. He only charged me $30, which is extremely reasonable price comparing with other business. Plus, he is such a perfectionist. He made the keys turn really smooth.

This is my second experience with him. (First time, I ask him match ignition cylinder lock and door handle lock.) I am very happy with the result both time. Here is a link to his business. You can check the review on Yelp as well.

Downside is that he runs his business alone, so making appointment is a bit difficult.

You can find codes on cylinder. or if you have original service manual with the car, codes should be on the first page.

If you do not have codes, bring the car to the shop. Tom will rekey on the spot.

Locksmith as he knows how to do it in a professionals and proper manner. Various security gadgets are available in the market that can be installed with locks to enhance the security of the premises and keep away from incidents of house breaking.

On my car the locks are all missing the codes but I do have the original manual with the car. How many digits long are the codes so I know what to look for.

Thanks

My 71 service manual/ record (white one) has vin# and sale information on the back side of front cover.

It should be 4 digit code for the door key. Trunk key code should be two digit with "sx" prefix.

single locksmith would make a lock single handedly. Hours of work with use of files and hammer would produce a single lock. Today the method of manufacturing locks have changed. A same basic design is used with one part being unique to each lock. The role of the locksmith also has evolved where today he is more in repairs rather than manufacturing.
