Locksmith Services

Elmer & Son Locksmiths offers a wide array of services, ranging from basic locksmithing to more modern things. We can take care of your needs by sending one of our service men to your location, or by coming to our store.

Below is a list for what we can do for you


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.

Residential 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.


Residential Deadbolt Installation

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.

Residential Key Duplication

We have over 4000 different key blanks in stock, if we don’t have it chances are no one will! Our key duplicating machines are calibrated on a regular basis to make sure your key works the first time.

  • High security “laser cut” automotive keys
  • Transponder & VATS automotive keys

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.
