Amazing service! Our two dogs managed to step on the button and lock themselves in our Jeep with the keys inside. We were pretty anxious about it, but Dylan saved the day. He arrived within 20 mins (on a Sunday too) and wouldn’t accept any payment… we couldn’t believe it. Thank you so much, we can’t tell you how much we appreciate it!!

Dylan returned my call in a timely manner and was friendly, professional, and informative. He showed up on time for my appointment and handled the situation in minutes. My replacement key was made quickly for a reasonable fee. I will definitely use Dylan again, just hopefully not too soon!

I emailed about five different local locksmiths to get a duplicate key for my 2006 Ford F150. The key man was the only company to get back to me. He was super responsive, flexible. Met me at my house and the whole process took less than 10 minutes. Great way to operate a business! Way better than going to a dealer! Will be my first call the next time I have another need

I rarely write reviews online but Dylan and his partner were so kind and efficient I had to let potential patrons know. I called the office today and within an hour and a half I had a new set of keys for my car - he even helped me tighten the battery! I can’t recommend this company enough - keep up the good work guys!

I recently used Dylan's services and they far exceeded my expectations. The whole end to end process was easy and convenient. Since most pre-owned cars do not come with 2 sets of keys these days, this is by far better than dealing with a manufacturer or dealership,. Dylan makes it easy to order and to schedule a mutually beneficial time. This was also far less expensive than the service department at the local car dealership.

FABULOUS!! Dylan is amazing. I called on a Thursday and he came the very next day. He was prompt, friendly, professional, knowledgeable, and helpful. And the price was very reasonable. I give Dylan my very highest endorsement.

The service was fast, convenient, and just what I needed. Both of my key fobs needed to be replaced immediately. Thanks Dylan for your assistance!

Nothing less than amazing. I had my car keys stolen and I spoke with him and he gave me all the info needed. Even gave some helpful tips on things I could do myself. After figuring out what I wanted to do and comparing many area key businesses, I eventually called him and he was able to come over that day and make a key for my car in 20 mins! So convenient, didn't have to get my car towed to the dealership, and his pricing was very fair and less than the dealer. I will be contacting him again if I ever need anything key related! You don't have to call every key place in town, I already did, haha. Just call him. Highly recommend!

What a positive experience from start to finish. Using a website chat portal I was able to ask specific questions, review pricing and schedule a very flexible time to have my spare key made for an old 2007 Jeep Commader on site at my location. This worked tremendously well as I was in town on vacation and was able to schedule a late appointment at 830 p.m. that worked around my family dinner schedule and travel time back to our condo.The work was spot on. The price was fair for my needs. The service was excellent. I would highly recommend this outfit for any of your key making needs.Thank you for helping me/us in our time of need. Jamey

Lost Car Keys

If there are no working keys to a vehicle, we can create a new car key at the vehicle’s location. The most common process we use is picking open the door lock and decoding the lock. After that, we use a progression program to solve for the remaining cuts in the ignition and retrieve the key code. Once we have a working key for the ignition, we program the keys by connecting a computer to the vehicle.
