Elmer and Son Locksmiths

Elmer & Son Locksmiths services began in 1941 in what was originally the home that Elmer and his family lived in. We are still located in the exact same spot, and just like the times have changed so have we. The house was eventually converted into a modern locksmithing business, complete with a 1200 square foot showroom where we have over 50 new and used safes on display, along with commercial and decorative lock hardware. The original storefront was converted into the only museum in the region dedicated to locks and safes.

Broken Keys

After prolonged usage, keys made out of metal becomes brittle or soft. When keys deteriorate, they can easily break off inside a lock, leaving a person locked out of a property or car. Locks can malfunction due to broken keys or another piece of fragment lodged into the lock keyhole. When dealing with a jammed keyhole, it is best not to try to attempt to remove it by sticking anything else in the opening. This can make the problem worse, causing more blockage or ultimately damaging the lock. A certified locksmith is essential to retrieve broken keys or any other debris removal. If the key to a residence, vehicle, or commercial property breaks, expert locksmiths nearby can handle the extractions with the proper tools stat. The locksmith will come out and remake the key and repair the lock, without collateral damage.

Residential locks repaired

Residential locks repaired Whether you have a new lock or perhaps an old mortise case lock from an older home we can in most cases repair it, but if not, show you what you could replace it with.

Deadlocks-Installed

Deadlocks Installed

We extremely recommend the use of deadlocks on a home. They offer the best physical security possible for your exterior doors. Unlike a keyed knob lock which uses a spring to keep its latch in place that can be easily pried back and a strike plate that is attached to the frame by a couple of ½” wood screws which can be kicked in, a deadbolt locks the door into the frame with a solid 1” long steel bolt that can’t be pried back. It also has 3” long screws that go through the frame and into the wood stud to prevent forcible entry

Locks Rekeyed

Why should you have your locks rekeyed? Perhaps you’re moving into a newly constructed or existing home, or someone in your family lost a set of keys. Rekeying your locks insures who ever had an existing key won’t be able to gain access to your home anymore. You could call us for a service call, or to save some of the cost you could take the locks off and bring them to us

We are proud distributors for some of the top manufacturers in the security industry.

A locksmith is a service professional who provides key and lock services. For homeowners and business owners, a locksmith can break a lock, replace locks, duplicate keys, unlock mailboxes, and make replacement keys. Locksmiths are trained professionals who can offer lock-related services without breaking or damaging locks or doors. Some locksmiths may be able to offer the same services for smart locks as well. While breaking into certain locks may mean replacing the lock, this route is still often less costly than alternative entry methods. Security system providers may offer locksmith-related services under plan warranties, which helps users avoid destroying equipment.

Specialized companies and certified professionals focus on corporate clients to provide an array of services. These services are engineered to meet the clients and their corporation’s needs, from building lockouts, electrical installations, to business alarm systems and smart business implementations.

We at Elmer & Son Locksmiths are also excited about being one of a select few distributors for a new line of access control call “Logic” by Medeco®. What sets this apart from all other products on the market is that this hardware installs without any wiring, door or frame modifications, and in most cases reuses you existing lock hardware. One of the most costly items of doing access control is the labor to install it. This is where “Logic” shines, as most cylinders can be installed in 5 minutes! This system also gives you the advantages of audit trails, schedules, and all rekeying is done digitally. With “Logic” you can manage the system yourself with the optional programming device and software, or it can be managed by us

ESL Contactors Hardware

At ESL we believe that customer service is the “key” to making a contract job run smoothly. What sets us apart from our competition is you only deal with one person for the entire project. From estimating to project managing it’s always that same employee. Unlike some of our competitors which have separate departments for estimating, detailing, purchasing and project managing that can make it difficult to find who you should be directing questions to. We know its much easier dealing with one person from the beginning to the end.
Another item were very excited about is our door frame and hardware schedules. We’ve been told by contractors and architects that its one of the easiest they ever had to review. Door openings are laid out clearly with elevations and hardware all on the same page. Please check out a sample of one here
