If It Locks, We Do It!

Whether you need it locked, opened, or keys made for it, we can help you with almost any security situation.

In 1926, A-1 Lock and Safe began in San Diego and was one of the very first locksmith shops to serve the San Diego and outlying areas.  Around 1996, A-1 Lock and Safe opened our second shop in Carlsbad to service the security needs of those living and working
in the coastal community.  As the security industry grew dramatically, we diversified and specialized in the automotive, residential and commercial aspects of locksmithing.

Our professional office staff will answer any questions you may have as well as offering expert suggestions to improve your security or take care of almost any problem that you are experiencing and at a very reasonable price.

Testimonials

What Our Clients Are Saying About Us

I have used A-1 Lock for many years. I find them to be the most professional service company I have used in a long time. I have many business throughout the country and I only wish A-1 could service all of them. I really can’t say how much I appreciate the service i have received over the years.
Their location is very convenient too. Just a block off the freeway, makes it easy for me to get the keys I need on a frequent basis.

My son lost his keys to his 86 Cadillac Brouham, we called many places and some quoted us double what A-1 quoted us, Mark came on time got things taken care of in a timely manner and was very personable, we would recommend them to anyone!!

Had a broken key for my Lexus and the dealership wanted $150 to replace it. A-1 Lock and Key had the laser equipment to make a new key, the expertise to know the inner workings of the computer chip and had me on my way in a very short time. They treated me fairly, the dealership needs a lesson in fairness.
