Locks changed and repaired

Proudly serving as locksmith to the Chapel Hill, Carrboro, and surrounding areas for more than 35 years.

Need locks for home or office?

I specalize in residential and commercial locks of all types — mechanical locks, electrical mechanisms, self-locking doors, and more.


A customized security solution, whether commercial or residential, requires a consultation and installation process based on knowledge and experience. I have almost 40 years of experience as a locksmith and have been securing Chapel Hill since I moved here in 1980. I know the types of crimes that most often occur in this area and the techniques you can employ to prevent them. Unlike most locksmiths I do all the work personally and have never used employees or apprentices, so whatever job you hire me for, I handle it personally.

Some of my best customers include:

  • Inter-Church Council Housing
  • Carol Woods
  • Crooks Corner
  • Carr Mill Mall

  • And many more!
