Replaced Lock

Abbey Locks came when scheduled. They confirmed the day before. They arrived on time, even a little early. They replaced our lock with a high security lock. Even though they were unable to deal with a sliding patio door lock they provided very helpful suggestions. We were very happy with our choice!

Replacement of door knob

John came the same day as I called him - which was great - but he didn't have a door knob similar to ours, so despite going out for over an hour to buy some parts he needed he ended up replacing our nickle coloured door knob with a gold coloured one; now the deadbolt and knob are different colours and it bothers me every day. Unfortunately my brother was the only one home at the time and wasn't able to manage the issue.

Company Response

Customer called explaining that the rear door would not open and close properly, this was due to the lock not being installed correctly (new town home development) eventually the lock jammed in the frame and the door could not be opend.
Upon removing the lock we found that the cutout for the latch had not been cut to the proper dimensions. I explained to the tenant that the only lock I had with me that would fit his door was brass he said that was fine as long as he could open and close the door with ease. The lock that we removed was not stainless steel but a bluish grey import from China. Upon leaving this job the customer was very happy with our work and the lock which we had supplied.

High Security locks with special keys

John was exceptional in his explanation of how to protect our home and business. His suggestions made my husband and I feel more protected and secure. His high security recommendation to use Mul-t-lock with a one key system was an execellent idea.

Will definately recommend Abbey Lock to friends and family. Good work John !!

install high-security deadbolts and handsets in old house

John did a high quality installation for a fair price. Our 90 year old house has many non-standard doors and cut-outs but John handled these challenges very well. The only reason a 10 rating was not given is that he arrived an hour earlier than scheduled and could have been more responsive to customer feedback regarding handset styles.

Lock Installation and security retrofit

John was very prompt and efficient in the installation of the high security specialty locks for our new home. John made himself available in a very short period of time, considering how time-sensitive our move was. Even though my doors had issues from the the previous installer, John was able to remedy them quickly. He even came back for a second visit without additional cost to provide security plating to the damaged doors. I really appreciated his professional cander and efficiency and will definitely recommend him. I have already done so to many of my friends. Thank you very much, John.

High Security Locks

John has the know-how when it comes to this business. Recently moved in to a new house and wanted to change the locks or add another deadbolt. Called John to get a quote and he gave me a reasonable price. Promised to show up at lunch time and was there on time. Instead of adding another deadbolt he recommended to me to install a high security mul-t-lock instead. His workmanship was exceptional!
Now I feel extra safe in my home, thanks to John!

Replaced locks

Had three high security locks installed and the job was done quickly and he showed up right on time. The work looked great and everything worked perfectly and he was happy to set us up such that all the doors in our house work from the same key. Highly recommended.

replacement of door locks

Called John in the morning and he was there in a couple of hours with good advice, clearly knew his locksmith subject and solved my home security problem within hours; gave me a senior's discount as well. Now the house is secure, thanks to John.

Changed locks

I called Abbey to change my locks. The gentlman showed up promptly after calling to confirm the best time (very courteous and helpful when you are moving into a new home and not waiting by the door), changed my locks quickly and efficiently and was lovely and gracious to deal with. This is an exemplary level of service that should be emulated by all.
