This place is amazing and beyond helpful! I was looking for a place to cut a key for my boyfriend and after failing at places like Home Depot, Lowe's and Walmart, I contacted Howard Safe & Lock.

Staff was extremely friendly and knowledgeable. I broke my key in my car door right before Howard Safe closed. Even though the key was broken in a way that was hard to copy, the staff stayed late and was able to make me a key that worked.
