Title: Locksmith services available....now & into the future!!
Post by: Tumbler on December 26, 2011, 04:38:02 PM
My Dad has been operating a locksmith business since 1976 or so but has worked for 3M also.  Now that he has retired from 3M he could use some support for the locksmith business.

He is going to specialize in residential and commercial locks and I am going to take some of the automotive/street rod/motorcycle side of it.  If anyone needs some lock work done or know anyone that does...let us know.

I'll have business cards available at the events I make it to and am available on here as well.  Any and all help is appreciated!!!  Thanks for at least reading this post!!!

Cool Mark.  Are you able to make my aftermarket helmet lock be used by my bike's key?  Right now I carry two keys.  PM me if you'd like to discuss details or on here.

We can sure look at it.  Give the number in the first post a call & talk with my Dad.

Since that's a more custom application he'd be the one to know if we can do it or not.

His name is Mark also so should be easy to remember.  LOL

Hope he can figure something out for you & thanks for trying us out!!

I'll do that, thanks Mark.

Did you ever give him a call about that job?  Just curious...he hasn't said anything to me lately so I thought I would check if you still need/want it done.

So its after the New Year & winter is finally here.

That shouldn't stop us from thinking about spring!!

It isn't too late to make those extra keys for your bike or other toys.

Contact M&S Locksmith & we'll get you taken care of.

Just got my spare key made. Was VERY affordable and quick. I'd recommend getting one done even just for peace of mind while out riding (especially for you trip people)

Just a reminder since the weather is nicer....if you need an extra key now is the time before you forget & the season is in full swing.

Or as people are getting their bikes running & find problems with keys or locks please keep us in mind.

We've been getting a lot of requests for work lately but still have plenty of room on the schedule to take on more.

Don't forget we also do residential & commercial lock work, set up master key systems for rental properties, & sell a variety of safety & security products.

I recently did some of my own price shopping on some basic jobs & consistently our prices were much lower than any of the places I spoke with.

I try my best to keep up on PM's but the fastest way to find out more info is to either visit our website below or call 651-428-0588 & talk to Mark.

Thanks for considering M&S Locksmith and for checking out the thread!!

Just did a job for someone with a Honda Valkyrie.
Those key blanks are different than the majority of the sportbike ones.

So that means we should now have most late era Honda key blanks in stock & ready to go.
Of course if we don't have your key in stock its only a couple day turn around to get it.

Does anyone need an extra key or know someone that does?

Also, don't forget we do residential & commercial lock work as well.

I don't know if you can help me but my key is "stuck" in the ignition, I tried to test my steering lock and well, now the key wont come out or turn. It's half between the off and the lock position. I'd like to get it fixed but also want 2 new keys for it if possible. How much am I looking at?

Thanks for thinking of us & I'm sorry it's taken so long to get back to you.  I haven't been on the forums in a while but now that spring has sprung hopefully I'll have more time.

To answer your question, yes we can help you out.  Shoot me a PM with further info about the bike & your location.  It shouldn't be too expensive but until we look at it I won't know for sure.

You could also just call my dad at 651-428-0588 to set something up.

Bump for the new people that may not know about us.

Recently did some work for some forum people and/or others they know.
Thanks for the word of mouth advertising & as usual if you have any questions post up!!

Hope everyone is having a good New Year!!

Thought I would bump this to say remember to keep your key in someplace safe over the off season.

Also, If you don't have an extra copy of your key or don't have the all important key code we would love to help you out.

That way it would ensure you are not left without a way to start your ride in the spring.

So now that the bikes are out & the season is in full swing it's a great time to ensure you have a spare key in the event one is lost.

Seems this early part of the season our business picks up for key copies since people are not always in the mindset yet of keeping close track of their key & they may go missing.
Then they try to dig out the spare they could have sworn they have only to find it is missing or worse yet, that the spare key AND the key code are both gone!!

Don't let yourself get into that predicament...locate that spare key and/or the key code.  If you don't have one or the other (or worse yet neither of them) we can help!!
Mention you heard about us from the ZG forum & you'll get ZG pricing.  Don't forget we also specialize in residential/commercial lock work of almost any sort you can think of.

Thanks for looking & for considering us!!

So had an incident on a ride this weekend where a key was broken so I thought I'd take this opportunity to remind people to ensure they at least have their key code written down or otherwise recorded.

Of course if anyone has any questions on this subject let us know.  All is not lost if you don't have the key code but it really does increase the difficulty and/or price of making a key thru other means.

Thought I would post the original info into a new post so people did not have to go back to the beginning of the thread.

I thought I would post something about locksmithing.  My Dad has been operating a locksmith business since 1976 or so but has worked for 3M also.  He is retired from 3M and could use some support for the locksmith business.  He is going to specialize in residential and commercial locks and I am going to take the automotive/street rod/motorcycle side of it.  If anyone needs some lock work done or know anyone that does...let us know.  I'll have business cards available at the ZG events I make it to and am available on here as well.  Any and all help is appreciated!!!  Thanks for at least reading this post!!!

Now that the season is winding down it's a good time to ensure you have an extra key for your bike and that they both are kept in a safe place so they are not lost during the off season.  Having your key code recorded in a safe place is also a great idea.  If M&S Locksmith can help you with any of the items I've mentioned here please give us a call.

Now that the ridding season is in full swing I thought I would remind people about the services provided by M&S Locksmith.

One of the main things we are a benefit to this & other forums is to make copies of your bike key so you have a spare should the og one get lost.

We can cut them from an existing copy or the key code depending on if your only key has been lost.  If you have neither of them we can still help....it's just more of a challenge.

We also offer a full range of residential & business services including setting up master key systems, getting into old locks, & some safe services.

Feel free to contact either myself via PM or my cell (612-910-3339) or the owner Mark at 651-428-0588 & tell him you heard about us from MSTA.

Happy ridding!!
