  • Front Door Lock Cylinder Failure

    10Verified Review

    Often the door couldn't be unlocked and key couldn't be removed without jiggling and shaking the key for one to several minutes. Additionally the key had to be used to unlock the door for exit which would present a problem in an emergency. Owl Locksmiths and Security arrived on time and quickly and professionally fixed the lock. First Class Service, I highly Recommend them. Cliff Wayne
