He explained the job, recommended against unnecessary replacements, and was quick to perform the work. Very friendly and quick! The locks work better than ever, and now we don’t have to worry about anyone else having a key. I would definitely recommend Elmer’s and will hire them again any time I need a locksmith.

 Shane was great and changed the locks quickly. He was in and out! Thanks for the great service!


Bellevue, NE 68005

 Shane called about 45 minutes prior to the appointment time asking if he could come earlier. Was courteous and made me feel at ease (single woman living alone). Was very quick disabling and rekeying all 11 locks – even knocked down the price because I had so many! Would definitely recommend him.

 I was referred to this company, as they specialize in antique locks. I ran into an emergency situation and they were unable to schedule me soon enough ( I was outside my locked house, and my key wouldn’t work). They did however refer me to another locksmith who was able to do the job competently and immediately. You gotta love a company who genuinely helps you out when they have absolutely nothing to gain but good karma!!
