Residential Services

Computer Precision Keying

Our residential keys are cut using computer precision technology so that they will precisely fit all of your residential locks. Our residential locks and keys are a higher grade than what is available to the average consumer at the hardware store, so you’ll benefit from an even higher level of home security.

Safe Sales

Purchasing a safe is an investment in the safety and security of your important documents, your memories, and the things that your family could not bear to lose. Residential safes can be designed to store jewelry, money, papers, firearms, ammunition, and anything that is important to you. The Village Lock & Key safe sales and repair team will work with you to ensure that you choose the right safe for your budget and for your security needs.

Before selecting a safe, we suggest contacting your homeowner’s insurance company to ask about whether or not a certain model or rating of safe will lower your homeowner’s insurance. Many times, high-security safes are significantly more affordable thanks to a decrease in your insurance premium.

New Safes and Used Safes

We offer both new safes and gently used safes for our residential and commercial customers. Our safes include:

Fire Safes

Fire safes are typically constructed from thin sheets of steel or plastic molded to create a tough inner and outer shell. Fire safes are lined with insulating material to guard the contents from fire for a certain period of time. Most fire safes are designed for one to two hours of fire protection.

Burglary Safes

Burglary safes are designed to prevent your precious and valuable objects from being stolen. They are made from solid steel or a combination of solid steel and filling material, like concrete. Burglary safes are rated according to how much protection they offer you and what testing they are capable of enduring.

Higher Security Lock Sales, Service, Repair, and Installation

Many residents are interested in higher-security locks for their homes to keep unwanted visitors out and protect their property when they are not at home. Village Lock & Key is your preferred local Medeco high security locksmith service provider. Our higher security lock consulting services can determine what locks are right for your home.

Keyless Entry Systems

Keyless entry systems consist of a door lock with a traditional handle or knob or a simple deadbolt and keypad. Keyless locks are great for entry points to your home that your children or babysitter enter, as you don’t need to worry about giving them a key. You can quickly and easily change the code for keyless locks to maintain a higher, restricted level of home security. Village Lock & Key can install a variety of keyless lock systems including models that are weatherproof for outdoor use.


The rekeying process involves removing a portion of the inner lock and replacing it so that a different key cut fits the lock. When your home front door, mailbox, or other area has been rekeyed, all previous keys will no longer work. Rekeying is the best way to affordably change who has access to certain areas without needing to replace all of the locks and hardware outright.


A residential lockout is one of the most frustrating things that can happen to homeowners. We respond quickly to lockouts and can take care of rekeying the lock or replacing it once you’re inside of your home. We’ll never unnecessarily upsell you, so if there’s any way for us to safely let you in your home without doing damage to the lock itself, we’ll do so.

We Are the Real Deal

Who has a key to your home? If the answer is “the locksmith I found online,” you might have entrusted the security of your family and property to a fake locksmith. Fake locksmiths are easily found online and in previously-trustworthy print sources, so you should always ask to see licensing and certification before allowing a locksmith access to any area of your property.

Many fake locksmiths do not use established techniques to help gain entry to your home and often damage locks by reaching for a drill first. Fake locksmiths will also often immediately attempt to sell you a new lock instead of trying to service your lock or repair the problem.

Trusting the security of your most valuable asset — your family — to just anyone is a bad idea. Instead, choose to work with seasoned professionals with a proven track record of success. You will feel safe with one of our licensed, bonded, and insured locksmiths on-site.
