The best. I drive past other locksmiths on my way to A. B. They make keys that work on the first time and have a great selection of weird Keys like mailbox keys. A friendly knowledgeable staff, hardly ever any wait, and if you need field service they have a fleet of vehicles filled with lock experts.

I phoned Friday, spoke to Russ who set up an appointment for Monday. He was very nice and so was the serviceman, Greg, who came today. I would definitely recommend them, a long established business that can be trusted. Although other companies are cheaper, I can't afford to skimp on my safety and security.

I made an appt today at 11am, left work to get home on time to meet them, and NO-ONE. I called, and talked to Russ (i think) who said (at 11:20) "we're just finishing a job and we'll be out there in 20min or so." No call to me, no communication that they were running late. I complained that if I stood up my client or showed up late for work I would be fired. "things happen" When i got a little fiesty i was told "I don't work for you" (i agree, but i believe when I am paying for a service, there is a certain expectation of quality and good communcation). Russ told me "I'll not be admonished by anyone" When I said I'll find another locksmith he said "please do!" WOW. Classy. AVOID THESE PEOPLE. FIND ANOTHER LOCKSMITH

I have been doing business with A.B. Bonded for over 20 years. They know their craft well, have all the correct tooling, and always take care of the customer. As an added bonus, their pricing is very reasonable.

Don't ever ever EVER go to A.B Bonded Locksmith Services. My wonderful boyfriend accidentally threw all my keys away, so I contacted this locksmith service. It took them a day but they eventually met me at my car. The guy who came out cut me a key and sent me off on my way. An hour later my key no longer works. So I have to call them again to come out to fix whatever they did wrong. Altogether this cost me $220. The pictures below show the new key he gave me. From last night till today, every time I unlocked my car door, the alarm would go off. So I went back up to their building today and said that I needed a key that would actually work. The gentleman who was working and I got into a huge altercation over this faulty key, and said to just give him the key back and he would give me my money back. After threatening to kick me out the store, I left and consulted with my boyfriend who told me to just keep the key, go to the dealership and get a new one and then return the shitty key. So I went back in and told him I'd be back. He apologized for our altercation as did I, said he'd give me a FULL refund on my key, and program the new key as well for free if I bought a new one. All was right in the world. So I go to the dealership, get a new key ($180) and head back to locksmith place. The guy that i was dealing with had went to lunch, but there was a different guy there that was so pleasant and helped me with my needs. When it came time to give me a refund for the new key, he begins to take out cash and I ask if I can have it refunded to my original method of payment. He says he just has to call and make sure. He calls the guy I was dealing with earlier and the guy instructs him to give me back only $50 of the $220 that I paid. Never in my life have I dealt with such scam artists. I've never written a bad review for a company ever, and this is the first time I've EVER yelled at anyone in a customer service position. But take my advice and take your business elsewhere.

It is always awesome to know there is a service company that still believes in service! Everyone I was in contact with was so kind, helpful beyond expectation and just as concerned to get our door fixed in a timely cost effective fashion as we were. It was a pleasure working with them! They will always be our first call for service and our first recommendation to others. Thank you AB Bonded Locksmiths!

Awesome service and extremely reasonable prices had a friend get 5 keys made and a lock rekeyed for under $20 couldn't hardly believe.

AB Bonded is where it's at. I was stranded downtown with a stuck tumbler in my car. I called them, they said "we can get there in a couple hours" which I initially thought was ridiculous (I want it NOW hah) but then every other locksmith in town quoted ABOUT A WEEK. I called AB back of course, on top of that they were also about $75 cheaper and I have gone with them for everything ever since. They also do chipped ignition keys quickly and cheaply. I was prompted to write this review after years of using them myself because a friend of mine just got a couple of ancient 1940s locks rekeyed very inexpensively and very professionally. These guys are far and away the best in town.

Fixed my problem with minimal fuss

As a followup to my prior bad experience with Allied, it turns out there was nothing wrong whatsoever with my screen door's lock and handle. The metal handle was loose and I asked Gary to tighten and fix it. Upon inspection and complete removal of the entire lock and handles, Gary advised there was something wrong with the lockpad itself beyond repair and he would need to order a brand new lock and handles. The new lock he brought 2 days later did not fit. Gary did not put the old lock back on. For weeks, I've been searching for one. So, I had someone else look at it. They said it appeared there was nothing wrong with the old lock. Instead, the handle was loose because the inside handle needed a basic locknut. I bought 2 locknuts at Lowe's for less than $1. The original lock and handle now work perfectly fine. I find it very hard to believe an experienced locksmith didn't realize all it needed was a very cheap locknut. I will never use Allied again.

We received excellent service. They were able to schedule us the next morning and Gary called to confirm the appointment. He was on time, very friendly and personable. He installed our new deadbolt and made us new keys using the pattern from our old one. Very happy with the service and the price was fair.

Moving in to a new home you don’t want changing the locks to be a big deal. You just want somebody come and take care of it! That’s what I found with Allied lock. No fuss, clear communications and very easy to work with. Excellent service and pricing all around. Than you!

I called Allied because I needed a new and more secure lock put on the side door of my house. Gary was very friendly and professional. He explained the different lock options and kept me informed while he was working. I am very happy with the new lock and will definitely call Allied if I need a locksmith in the future!

Quick service with ability to cut key and program chip for newer vehicles ... much more affordable than dealerships.

I always go to Cecil and always get great service and good keys. I own rental properties and need to change keys frequently. I also prefer to patronize local mom-and-pop businesses over the big chains which often make bad keys that need to be returned and replaced. Best to get it right the first time.

I had a very bad experience with this locksmith. I wanted to patronize local businesses so I called Cecil Lock & Key, and we set a time for them to come out and rekey my locks. When the locksmith arrived, he introduced himself by name, Gary Leach, and proceeded to do the work, but upon completion the bill was 40x higher than the estimate I had been given! Granted, it turned out that we needed a new lock on the front door, so I expected it to be at most $100 more, but the final bill was $600 when I had been given an estimate of $15. It turned out that Cecil Lock & Key had been busy on the day in question and given my name and number to another locksmith, who did not tell me he was not employed by Cecil when he arrived at my house. His prices were considerably higher and he also did not give me a new estimate, and since I did not know, I got stuck with an outrageous bill. I found the whole experience to be highly unprofessional and distressing, especially because, when I called Cecil to inquire about this, they would not help me out in any way even after admitting it was their error, and they stopped taking my calls when I pursued it. No business should give out the name and number of a customer to a third party without their consent or without informing them. I would not recommend this business for this reason, and I would warn others to beware of the business practices of Gary Leach. If you decide to hire him, which I personally would not advise, ask for an estimate in writing in order not to be overcharged.

Professional, friendly, very reasonably priced, very fast, and based right in Northside! Grateful that Gary made the recommendation to rekey the back door to match the front, I wouldn't have thought to do that, but it solved a second issue for very little extra cost. The new locks they installed are super high-quality and smooth as butter.

If your hours state that you're going to be open at nine, maybe you should have someone there at nine. I don't show up late to work with the wrong materials, I don't use the wrong throat when I sing. You should be more conscious and not use the wrong key carver when you make keys. The reason I went to this place was because of the convenient location and high star review. The service I received was sub-par, and cost me over an hour of my time.

Cecil lock and key was a wonderful help to me. I need a new transponder key for my Ford. I thought I would save some money by buying the transponder blank from Amazon. Even though I had bought the incorrect blank, when I brought it in 2 Cecil lock and key Scott traded my blank for the correct one cut it and programmed it for $20. I'm have been a customer for many years, they replaced all the locks at my church and have always done a wonderful job. I would recommend them for anyone who needs a locksmith.

I appreciated the great response time to my request for having locks changed after a burglary. Gary was very accommodating, professional and quick. Seemed pretty pricey when I got the bill though and wish I would have checked prices ahead of time.

These guys are awesome and knowledgable. Business has been around for a while, and the locksmith I worked with has been in the business for 35+ years. They go above and beyond for their customers and their prices are great. Had to have a key impressioned, everyone else either couldn't do it or wanted to charge $40-$50. They charged $12.5. They aren't as busy as places such as acme, so they will be able to take care of you faster.

If you want to be charged twice what you should be call this business. I was charged $422.00+ to have 2 dead bolt locks put in. I should have called around, all other bids, after the fact, were 1/2!! Never again. Even the businesses with the big Yellow Page ads were half the cost!

These guys are great - I purchased an electronic lock that I needed to get keyed to match the rest of my house. I stopped in one afternoon and was done and back on the road within 20 minutes with the lock changed, some spare keys and a bill that seemed way too low. They have a really cool collection of antique locks that are fun to check out while you wait.

I've always had great service at Cecil's. They made keys for a bunch of old fashion pass key locks (skeleton type). Made keys for cabinet locks. Found the right blanks for classic cars. Good prices quick turn around. They're just a half block off Hamilton at Knowlton's corner and Ludlow viaduct. Easy parking in their lot. Note: Hoffner is a one way street from Hamilton for 2 blocks west.

Yesterday I was locked out of my car and I called around to several locksmiths to get a price. Rod at Keystop was the only one willing to give me an exact price. Further more, they have a real locksmith shop in West Chester! Rod was here in just a few minutes and was able to unlock my car quickly.

HIGHWAY ROBBERY!!!! If you are looking to only get keys cut, DO NOT COME HERE. Go to a WalMart, Ace, Home Depot, anywhere but here. It was $75 for 10 plain keys.... That's downright absurd. Never again. In response to Rod H... you're not in the business of having reasonably priced key cutting... you're a locksmith and key shop... hmmmmm. That's totally logical. And no, your prices were NOT posted in plain sight. I was one of your very first customers, apparently before you thought to post your prices. Due in part to your snarky response, I will make sure anyone I know will never set foot in your establishment. I've already prevented 4 customers from coming to your shop. I wonder how many more I can save you from having to be rude to?

This place did a great job with my doors that I needed done in my house. I had three doors done and the one door on the side of my house would not lock right that night. I called them first thing the next morning and they had another technician come out that day and fixed it at no extra charge. I highly recommend this company.

Had the internals of our front door handle set break, could not open the door. They came the same day, assessed the problem quickly, found they did not have the internal piece needed. Took the broken handle out overnight and found a replacement in a supplier, came back and installed the next day. Prompt and professional service, transparent about the problem, solution and costs. Would definitely use them again.

We were not sure what to do with our Amazon-bought key fobs which we had cut at Mazda. Mazda told us they could not guarantee that their programming would work, plus it would cost $120 for one. Avi was able to quickly program (and I mean quickly, probably 10 minutes) both key fobs for $120. So friendly, helpful and knowledgeable!
Alexa R.
09/13/2018
The first thing you will notice about Avi is how neat and organized he is. His work truck is spotless and everything in there has its own place and is always returned to its location when he's done using it. You can tell he takes immaculate care of his equipment, and he extends the same courtesy to your equipment as well. He is extremely professional, and I can honestly say once we started working together, I never had to call him back to follow up and I never felt like he wasn't going to get back to me or that I had been forgotten. He helped me fix the key fob for my 2004 Pontiac GTO. I was super lucky to have found him as there was no other options for the repair (no Pontiac dealerships exist anymore). He ended up having to rebuild the inside of one of the fobs because the car's previous owned had tried to make some repairs himself and had failed miserably. He was extremely knowledgeable and you can tell he knows exactly what he is talking about. Even considering how much of a challenge this was and how he essentially had to custom-rebuild the fob, his price was extremely fair and probably well under what I would have had to pay had I gone to a dealership if one existed. I highly recommend Avi, there really is no other person in the Cincinnati area who can do the same quality of work as him, and you can even call other locksmiths and they will refer you to him. His work speaks for itself and his professionalism is without parallel. Thanks Avi!

I am in Cincy for my daughters basketball tourney and accidentally locked my keys in my car! I called the first number I found and it was literally a call center in China...no kidding. I then researched a bit and found Automotive Key!! They rescued me from my daughter having to miss her game! Avi to the rescue!!
Nathan H.
06/18/2018
Was in a bind when I lost my keys and didn't have a spare. Avi was there 20 minutes after I called and only took about 10 or 15 minutes to get a new key cut! Also the price is very fair and beats going to the dealership. The terrifying experience of losing my keys was made a lot better by Automotive Key! Thanks a lot!

Luis was a tremendous help. He knew exactly what I needed and got me in and out of his shop very timely. I will return for all my auto key needs and really cool keychains and phone cases as well. NFL gifts, look no further. MLB gives, look no further. He's got tons of really cool things. Stop in and see for yourself.
Ray L.
04/13/2017
Avi (the owner) was awesome. He got me in and out in less than 15 minutes. His price was less than half what the dealer wanted. I will send anyone who needs a key his way for sure.

Solid price and really fast service. In and out in 10 minutes and the key works perfect. Avi was fast and professional. Going back for any car key needs I have in the future.

Avi was SO great to work with. He is super professional and helpful- makes the problem clear and provides the most logical solution. He was on time, very personable, and amazingly helpful. He met us where our car was stuck and replaced the ignition in less than an hour. I can not recommend this service enough!!

Losing your car keys can put you in a very stressful situation; especially when you're rushed to get to the hospital. With a little bit of research and the magic of (smartphones + Yelp) my boyfriend and I stumbled upon Automotive Key. All of the reviews for this company were flawless, so we decided to take a shot. Within minutes of calling, a man name Avi arrived to the rescue. Avi, was a very personable gentleman and has over 20+ years of automotive locksmithing under his belt. Shortly after our conversation I expected him to tow my car and finish within a few hours. I WAS WRONG! - You can schedule an appointment within minutes of calling. - This service saves you the headache of towing your vehicle. -Took less than 20 minutes for the final product. -Beats the prices of expensive dealerships Again, I would like to thank Avi for his excellent A-1+ service. Would highly recommend!!! -Nancy and Randy

I called this place three times to get a key cut. First two were voice mails that Avi never bothered to return. Third time I called him and I felt like I was talking to some goober teenager trying to schedule an appointment to bring my car in for a key. After about 10 minutes of back and forth and him telling me to call him with a time rather then setting something up for January 16th, I said to hell with it. Get organized, Avi, or at least return a call! I'm sure he does good work, based on the reviews I've seen, but don't treat me like an idiot and making it so damn hard to schedule an appointment. I'm going somewhere else.

Highly recommend! We needed to have new car keys with key fobs cut and programmed for our vehicle. Automotive Key came to our home, cut & programmed two keys for us in less than 30 minutes. Their customer service is A+++ which is difficult to find these days. Very professional, courteous and proficient.

Don't bother calling anyone else. Avi was prompt and professional. He also beat every competitors price by far. Was able to cut and program key in less than 20 mins. Thanks Again!

Called on a Tuesday to see if I could set up an appointment for a Thursday since he needed the vehicle to be present to program another key. He told me to call back on Thursday which I did @ 10am and left message. Called back 2 hours later and went to voicemail. I called back several time and no answer. I then had my wife call and she left a message. This is Friday and I have not heard back from him. Interesting enough is that he was going to charge me 85 to do this and my wife called the dealership and they quoted 56 and some change. Poor customer service by not allowing me to setup time when I was available and especially not returning calls.

I needed some fobs programmed and a spare chip key made. He did it at a great price (a fraction of the price of the dealership), and he was really easy to work with. I would definitely recommend him. Thanks for the help and wonderful service!

Called around to several "Automotive Locksmiths" and received service call prices and outrages quotes. Looked up this locksmith on the BBB and saw some good reviews. I just got done getting a key made for my 2008 Suzuki and Avi lived up to the reviews. By the way it only cost 1/3 of the price quoted by 3 other locksmiths. Thank you Avi. Highly recommend. *****

Lucked out that I found an amazing guy on the first call. Just the mobile unit was truly impressive. I had a complex, wireless, multi-function key fob with a traditional door key to replace, and he was finished in under a half an hour, and i didn't have the traditional key for reference!!! Glad to have Avi as a resource from here on out. Truly THE MAN when it comes to anything having to do with a lock. David Morrison

Avi is a great guy and extremely professional. I had a very terrible experience with some other locksmith scam artist and he came out in a clearly marked van which was clean and tediously cared for. Which is something you want to see if they are showing up to you while alone. Well he partially saved the day, he cut the key and tried to program it but was unsuccessful due to Dodge and how their keys and security systems work. He couldn't program the key but even after showing up and trying different work arounds the code wouldn't take. He didn't charge me for his time and I appreciate it. I will recommend him anytime myself or a friend needs a locksmith. Thanks again Avi!

Avi really is the best. Hands down, I could not imagine better pricing and service for what was a very stressful problem. I have a Honda Pilot, and one day after lunch, my key wouldn't turn in the ignition. PANIC! Turns out, after some quick googling in my driveway, this is a "Honda problem" where around the 120k mile mark, the pins in the ignition switch bend and warp from use over time such that the key can't be used any more. It is a known problem and Honda refuses to issue a recall. After another google seach for "auto lock smiths", Avi's shop popped up, and I called right away. He said he sees the problem all of the time, and it would be no problem to fix it right away! Avi offered to come out to my location in his van, which is an awesome option, but I was able go jiggle the key enough and get it started so I headed over to his shop. When I got there, not only was he calm and friendly in the face of a very stressed customer, but he showed me just how the pins were bent on an old ignition sample he had, and just how he was going to replace them. He even offered to have one of his staff to drive me back to work! About an hour and half later he was finished, and all worked perfectly. The price was incredibly reasonable (under $300) and I had contacted a Honda dealer who wanted $700+ to replace the whole ignition and make new keys. Instead of doing more than was necessary, Avi has the skills and technique to actually FIX the lock, not just replace it wholesale. He guarantees his work for the life of the vehicle, and I have no doubt that my ignition problem is resolved for good. Professional, and friendly, with an organized and pristine clean shop and van, Avi was nothing short of impressive, and I can't recommend him enough.

Leah answered my initial questions via yelp and provided a competitive quote for cutting and programming a replacement car key. Avi quickly cut and programmed my key with his state-of-the-art tools. Friendly and professional service - I highly recommend!

Avi was a great help to me earlier this week when I misplaced my car keys and was locked out. I was in a terrible mood, after working since 6am, losing my keys, getting 2 parking tickets and eventually having to pay (a fair and good) price for cutting a new key. An earlier customer kept Avi from arriving as scheduled, but he offered me a fresh date/prune when he got there so we got off on the right foot. I was impressed by the key cutting technology. I hope I never have to use a locksmith again, but if I do, I'm calling Automotive Key!

My son lost his car keys at a rest stop while on a business trip in NY. He asked me to help him find a locksmith. I heard numerous horror stories about locksmiths ripping off customers and frankly didn't trust anyone I called for quotes. I felt like I was getting a "runaround" from everyone I called. The quotes were either way over priced, or they would give me an "estimate" and tell me they had to see my car before they could give me a final price. ( which meant that once they got there they would charge me an outrageous price) I had companies ask me for a credit card over the phone before they would even come out to my vehicle. I was getting very discouraged. Then I received a call from Automotive Key. I had called for a quote earlier and they said they would check with the technician. Leah ( I think she was the business manager) was willing to listen to my concerns and fears of using a locksmith. She quoted me a flat rate, which was $20.00 under my lowest quote. I was still very skeptical about the whole experience of meeting a tech in a dark parking lot. My husband and son went with. The tech Avi called me about 15 mins before he was going to be there to confirm. He drove a van that clearly advertised who he worked for, so I felt a little better that it wasn't a plain white van. Avi was very friendly and professional. He introduced himself and quickly got to work. He even had us laughing at some of his stories. When he was done he charged the exact amount I was quoted over the phone. No up charges, no games! I was so happy that there are good guys out there and that when I have a friend who needs a locksmith I will recommend this company. It is comforting to know that a company cares about the reputation of this industry to take the time a listen to my concerns. Thank you Automotive Key for your help! Thanks Avi for your professionalism. It was a pleasure to work with you and I'm pleased that our family has a good experience to share about locksmiths...your one of the good guys!

First, I took a shot by using Automotive Key because they had no reviews on Angie's List. This was after doing all online research about how to replace keys and calling locksmiths on Angie's List. The thing that got me is Avi specializes in automotive locksmithing, Boy, I could have not been more pleased from the initial call to the keys being made to me driving away in my car. Avi answered all my questions on the phone in a personable and professional manner where I could understand. Here's the thing. I could tell from the conversation he really cared about providing me with great service whatever I needed and I could tell he had great passion and pride for his work. I actually got a cheaper quote from someone else but Avi told me he would match it because to him it was not about the money. Where do you ever here that these days? With that we scheduled to meet the following day. He called me when he was on his way and we meet at my vehicle. No towing your vehicle to the dealer Avi comes to you. He was waiting on me, very punctual! Greeting was very friendly. I was really impressed with what I saw. A clean organized work van. I mean everything had its place. I originally pictured in my mind a beat up work van with stuff every showing up. NOT the case here, He explained to me in detail how the process worked to make and program everything and then he got to work. First he made an access key to open the doors. We then choose what style key I wanted. No options like that offered from the dealer. Avi is the ONLY one in Cincinnati that has a "flip" key style key and remote in one for a Ford. In fact Ford doesn't even make them. How cool is that. So I went from a plain key with a separate remote to the sweet all in one flip key. He then made the keys, programmed the transponders and remotes. Again he explained to me how everything was done. I watched him make the keys and program everything. At one point one of the new remotes was not working properly. Not a problem! Avi was not going to leave me with a problem. He took it all apart fixed it and test again, again and again to ensure no failures for me. Again, that's how I know his passion and pride to do the job right. The funny thing is the local Hamilton township police department and the Morrow police department saw us and stopped by to have Avi cut keys for them at the same time for their cruisers. That's trusted! I would use again and will not hesitate to recommended to anyone personally and professionally. Note: many options are much more costly. I got quotes anywhere from $50 to nearly $200 more from the dealer and other general locksmiths. I even got told a couple times that I must go to the dealer from various locksmiths. What? Not Avi! Big or small, difficult or not and even high security is not a problem. THANK YOU AVI. You made my day in a difficult and potentially overly costly situation.

The owner is extremely talented in working on a lock that is a least 60 years old. He told these locks should last 100 years. I was appreciative of his knowledge as well his reasonable cost in repairing the lock.
