  • On time

Very friendly and knowledgeable. Chicago Locksmiths gave us several options to fix our lock problem and save us money. After they quickly replaced our lock, was kind enough to take a look at another lock that was giving me a problem. I would highly recommend Richard and Chicago Locksmiths Company! He was great!

Customer Testimonials

Chicago Locksmiths came to my rescue when I locked myself out of my car. I gave them a call and a locksmith arrived literally 10 minutes later!

I locked myself out of my home during the holidays. Surprisingly, a locksmith was available to help me get back inside. He did such a great job that I referred Chicago Locksmiths to my friend who needed her locks changed.

I’m going to use Chicago Locksmiths every time I need new keys made! The staff is super helpful and nice and the keys actually work. Keys I’ve had done at Home Depot get stuck in my locks, but Chicago Locksmiths’ keys are perfect replicas. They also have a wide selection of keys available - I was able to have my mail key copied, which Home Depot doesn’t have.

Quick, informed, professional, and nice!

Joe was terrific. He helped us with our job and also noticed things around the locks and house that I would not have, providing valuable insights. We had him back out a second time for more work we needed because he did such nice work. Would definitely recommend!

Robert was amazing, my car keys fell into the street sewer, and he was able to drive down and was here within the hour to make me new keys. It took him less than 20 minutes to get me two copies for my car. They are very cheap compared to other locksmiths I had called, and definitely cheaper than towing my car to thedealership. I am very thankful to Robert and his generosity. Thank you guys!

I am a Real Estate Broker and I ran into an issue at a property where I needed someone out asap because the door was not working and the tenants needed to move in. I called Chicago Locksmiths and they were available same day and even flexible to make the time that I needed work. Steve Schmidt- the locksmith who came out was great! He called ahead of time to let me know he was on the way, and showed up when he said he would. He worked with two different locks at the property and had all the tools and materials on site so we did not have to wait for parts and he did everything in no time at all! I was extremely happy with his services and the tenants were excited that there was no hold up in their move in. I am going to continue to use the Chicago Locksmiths moving forward!

These guys are great. We found their storefront after we'd copied a dozen keys at Home Depot and none of them work. New batch from Chicago Locksmith were higher-quality key blanks and worked perfectly.

Last week, I called them to replace a door lock at our home, and they offered same-day or appointment service. Their guy showed up right on time, examined our doorknob and determined he just needed to clean the lock out, not replace the knob and lock as we'd thought-- which saved us probably $100.

This locksmith was quick and I had great service! I bought a new motorcycle and it only had one key, so I needed a couple of spares. They were able to cut me two new ones and tested them to make sure they worked. The employee even went back over one of keys to make sure it worked smoothly. I will easily head over here the next time I need a spare key cut for my house or car.

Went in to get some keys copied, and was in and out in less than 5 minutes! Great, because I was with some friends, but heading into work! Man behind the counter was so incredibly nice, and let me know if there was anything wrong with the keys, they would replace them, no problem. Would recommend to others, for sure!

My key place forever, go here they’re the best! Always willing to help me out quick and always real friendly.

Andre is a superb locksmith. He is professional, courteous, and skilled. He was able to re-key our locks and helped us problem solve ideas to fix a third lock with which we were having trouble. Thanks, Andre!
