Lockbusters

A lot of locksmiths will charge you an arm and a leg, especially if you are locked out. They tell you one price on the phone, but when they get there the game changes, and suddenly you’re paying more than you signed up for.

Jay is absolutely the only locksmith you need to know in NYC. He's the nicest, warmest, kindest human being and most importantly, an honest locksmith not trying to take advantage of people in difficult spots. He's really a blessing and a hero. A dog lover, too! Can't say enough nice things. Just a true gem!!!

Folks, believe me when I say there IS a difference between locksmiths. We've had horrific and expensive experiences in the past until we stumbled upon Lockbusters. I researched them online and was very impressed with what I read. They are like no other. Jay and his team are uniquely ethical, responsive and friendly. We've used Lockbusters in the past in our old co-op and were beyond satisfied with the quality of lock, workmanship and cost. Now that we've moved to a new place, we're finding our lock is temperamental, sporadically difficult to open and lock. I sent Jay photos of what I thought was a completely broken door lock. He responded that from what he can see, it's already a great lock and that all he'd have to do is change the face plate and lock knobs and will keep the cost to a minimum- below $200, which is outstanding in my book. He could've easily said the whole lock has to be replaced, but no, he is genuinely honest and ethical and that is what is important, why we'll continue to use him, and why I will recommend Jay and Lockbusters to ALL my friends and family.

I needed an older top lock rekeyed and a backdoor deadbolt installed in my new apartment. After receiving exorbitant quotes from three other companies, Lockbusters (Jay) gave me fully transparent, honest quotes for multiple options. He didn't try to up-sell me on just installing all new locks, he retrofitted my existing lock and it operates even smoother than before! He was also just a really nice guy! Very professional, and very knowledgeable of his craft. I wish I could give more stars.

I just purchased a new apartment and wanted my "own" front door locks. After reviewing a few yelp posts this one stood out. Everyone said friendly, knowledgeable, and professional and my experience was exactly the same. This dude is great. He knew everything about my current bottom and top locks-- the quality, the manufacturer, the condition it was in. He gave me an honest consultation and said I didn't need new locks just tubular replacements and a high grade pick-proof lock. Exactly what I wanted. He was professional and efficient and genuine. If I could give more stars I would. Great experience and I will refer him to my friends and family.

I've known about Jay for a while now but (luckily) haven't had the need to call him until my office door one day locked itself. Throughout the entire process of unlocking the door, he made great conversation, talked about the dog shelter he volunteers at and cracked jokes with everyone. Quality guy to be around. This is a person you can trust, always. Thanks Jay for all your help! #ForThePuppies
