Customer Testimonials

Staff was extremely friendly and knowledgeable. I broke my key in my car door right before Howard Safe closed. Even though the key was broken in a way that was hard to copy, the staff stayed late and was able to make me a key that worked.
If you live around the Heights Howard Safe & Lock is your place for a great locksmith!

Locked myself out of my house and they got me in quickly and were very friendly (even made me a spare key for free!). Awesome service.

Howard is great. I called on Sunday to set up an appointment to make another key for my car. He picks up within 3 rings and went out of the way to meet me at the shop and got they key done within 10 minutes. His pricing is not expensive and very reasonable compared to the other places I called around. Definitely a thumbs up and will use the service again!

Mr. Vidal arrived at our house to extract the key we broke in half inside the lock to our front door. He then quickly made a copy and unlocked the front door. From the moment we called him to finishing the task, it took about 10 minutes. His arrival and service were impressively fast, and it was about 9:30 pm on a weekend. I would highly recommend!

I have to say that locksmith Mor Vidal and the rest of the gang did a great job advising me on what to do with my sticky locks. They were very friendly. But they didn't try to convince me to buy a bunch of fancy new locks even though they appear to have a nice diverse selection of new locks. They were honest enough to offer me a rekeying solution.

Locksmith Mor did an excellent job. He finished my first sticky lock with such skill and so quickly that I knew I had found a good locksmith. He sent me off to retrieve the other five locks that needed help and I ran off to change them out and quickly bring them back. When he was done all of my locks were turning as smooth as molasses, just beautiful! My wife is extremely pleased! Before locksmith Mor used to skill on them they were dirty and in horrible shape. I would gladly recommend the Howard safe and lock company to anyone and everyone. There's a lot to be said for good old-fashioned customer service. They seem to still value that wonderful tradition here. Great job Howard safe and lock!

Mr. Vidal assisted me this morning when I was locked out of my vehicle. He was extremely quick to respond and was speedy when opening my vehicle. I was impressed with his professionalism and would recommend using him.

Quick and stress free service!

I brought in a commercial lock to be rekeyed (one I never had the key for). I wasn't thrilled with the quoted price, but they worked with me to stay within my budget. He rekeyed the lock while I waited, and within minutes he was done. Will definitely go to this local neighborhood locksmith again for all my key needs.

Very nice folks; Reasonable prices; Convenient location. Been in the heights a long time. They’ll take care of your security needs.

Got my Acura keys replaced and programmed here, and I’m very happy.

These guys are great; came out to our car within 5 min of calling. Helped quickly and were polite. I’d recommend calling them.

I have been doing business with Howard Safe & Lock for years as an old Heights resident. We have Medco locks which require additional safety measures and unique care. Howard Safe & Lock continues to give me great customer service. Had four new Medco keys made, and the lock serviced with one hour of calling. In the past, I have had them cut off heavy duty locks, service other unique door locks, and answer all my security, lock questions. They are a great asset to the neighborhood. New management is terrific and highly responsive. So glad I can continue to count on their great service throughout the years.

These guys are fantastic! I won’t go anywhere else for my lock and key needs. They are very knowledgeable and friendly, and they have the best prices and service around.

Absolutely Great Service!! Mor Got to my house in Garden Oaks in less than 20 minutes from call. Fast Service....removed broken key and he got me inside, and made me a new key. All in less than 10 minutes!!! Awesome! I was in a hurry to get to kids soccer game. I highly recommend. Thanks Mor!

We had a short-notice emergency situation that required my mothers house be unlocked after picking her up from the airport.

We found Howard Safe and Lock online, and within fifteen minutes of placing the call the front door was unlocked and we were inside.The locksmith was friendly and professional, and I will definitely be going to these guys first in future similar situations. Highly recommended.

I stopped into this Lock & Safe Company to look for a key for my truck. I missed him a couple times by left my number you got ahold of me pretty quickly. I didn't have a lot of money at the time I didn't really have the money to spend on expensive key. I told him I sent you a shin about what was going on in my life and he worked out an excellent deal for me. He's honest just and true and made me a happy customer. It was well worth the wait and the time to find him.

Very fast service, on a frezzing cold day. Can't complain bc the price was amazing for such a hurry!. Amazed will definitely use again
