We understand better than anyone else that the offerings of the physical security industry are never fool proof and simply buy time until the authorities can arrive and take over or until the threat is contained. However, we truly believe that by utilizing our offerings we are able to provide you with the adequate time required to diffuse the situation.
Rekeying of locks
Just purchased a home? Any idea where every key, ever made to your home is? These are two great reasons to consider re-keying the locks on your home. There is a misconception that when you purchase a home and the realtor gives you keys these are your keys. In most cases this could not be further from the truth, odds are those keys he/she just gave you belonged to the last home owner, and who knows who they issued keys to? The nanny, maid, painter etc. It’s an inexpensive service we provide, consider it cheap insurance, I guarantee the stuff in your home is worth MUCH more than what the service will cost.
Lock Service & Replacement
Keys hard to operate in the door lock, making it hard to open? Having to slam the door to get it to latch? Does the door knob simply pull off the lock completely? Odds are we can repair the majority of the lock issues found in your home, and if the lock is beyond repair or not worth repairing we can discuss replacement lock options with you. We offer many of the top brands such as Schlage, Kwikset, Emtek, Baldwin, Arrow, and Yale, as well as high quality reasonably priced generic house brands such as General Lock, USCAN and LSDA. We do our best to match existing lock designs and finishes found throughout your home and we only offer brands we stand behind. Please check our warranty page for more information on how we choose the brands we offer and how we stand behind them.
Lock Installation & Upgrades
In the market to make your home more secure? Need to add a deadbolt or two on existing doors to make them more secure? Interested in moving to high security locks which provide protection against lock picking, drilling, bumping, unauthorized key duplication and other professional bypass techniques? We offer a variety of medium to heavy duty deadbolts as well as high security locks that can be incorporated into your home. We have brands like Mul-T-Lock and Medeco on the shelf and ready for immediate installation.
Furniture Locks & Keys
Recently inherit or purchase an old/antique piece of furniture that has a lock but no keys? Need to secure a desk drawer or cabinet? These are standard services we provide on a routine basis.
Decorative Door Hardware
Fancy a remodel or designer look for your locking hardware? At Downs we offer a wide variety of finishes, styles and handle designs of knob/lever locks as well as deadbolts. We offer quality decorative hardware from brands such as Emtek and Baldwin.
Keyless Entry Locksets
Tired of the hassle of carrying keys, sick of the kids losing keys? A standalone keyless entry lockset may be the answer. These units allow for simple pin code entry and work off of a replaceable 9V battery. They also hold multiple codes so a second code can be issued to the maid or weekend guest and changed at anytime. Our residential electronic pin code locks are made by Emtek and are much higher quality than those found in the big box department stores.

UL437 Listed, patent protected locks and keys protect you against picking, drilling, bumping, and unauthorized key duplication. We are authorized dealers for Medeco, Mul-T-Lock and Schlage Primus XP High Security locks.

“I have been a customer of Downs for 28 years. Layson arrived punctually and was so professional and friendly. I am, as always, beyond happy and satisfied with my experience with Downs.”

“The best experience ever! We began with a broken Baldwin key in our big front door, which has a matching door that is designed to open when the top and bottom brass posts are slid out of the holes in the brass fixtures. We thought we would have a locksmith fish out the broken piece of the key and that would be our only service goal.
This is what we had accomplished: 1) the broken key piece was fished out; 2) all of our keys did not work correctly, we had to be very careful in finding just the right position for the key in the lock for it to work, which in a distracted moment led to me breaking a key in the lock. All our keys have been retooled in the Down's technician's service van and all now work perfectly; 3) the keyed door tongue fittings have been trimmed so that the door now locks on the non-keyed inside as easily in winter as it does in summer; 4) the non-keyed door with sliding posts has been fixed so that the door not only can be opened, but also it can be opened easily. We have not been able to open the door at all for many years. All of this took an amazingly short amount of time and the total cost was a very pleasant surprise”
