REVIEWS OF Howard Safe & Lock Co IN Texas

Gustavo Gonzalez

Quick, easy, and great, friendly service. Do not hesitate to call these guys if you’re in need for a locksmith. Very affordable as well. Moore is a key jedi!

Scott Wesley

These guys are the real deal! Real locksmiths that know their trade. I had some keys made at Lowe's and Lowe's did not use the proper blank and the keys didn't fit my tool box locks. I walked into Howard Safe & Lock and the guy immediately cut me 2 keys that work wonderfully. If you have a rare key or a challenging lock situation, this is the place to go. They are not expensive either!

Tinzin Pasang

Very good service. knowledgeable, fast and friendly. Highly recommended.

Ricky Arrington

Very helpful, only person we could find to make a matching key and fix our deadbolt.

Jesus Mireles

Mor provided excellent service throughout the whole locksmithing experience. Really knowledgeable about his service

Matthew Dagleish

I came into Howard Safe & Lock Co and they had everything I needed. I got my key quickly and effortlessly. Very friendly and courteous staff, only place I go to get my keys cut.

Cole Jones

I was walking up to get keys copied and a guy pulled up next to me and asked if I needed keys. Lo' and behold it was Howard, the one and only, who had already closed shop. He parked, opened back up just for me. Now THATS customer relations. Keep it up Howard. You've already got the key to my heart.


By far one of the best lock and key shops I have been to! These people are really great and super knowledgeable about their products. They stand behind their work and service and go above and beyond to make sure you are satisfied. 10/10 would recommend.

Clive Borresen

After buying a second hand car for my wife I discovered that the only key it came with did not work properly. Each time starting the car took her nearly 15 minutes. I went out the the shop at 8:30pm and the owner had met us there leaving his gym time to help us. He gavee 2 keys that work perfectly and all faster than my wife could start the car. Will definitely use his service again for all my lock and key needs.

Amanda Marie

My car key broke unexpectedly so I came here hoping to avoid paying 200+ dollars for a new one from the dealership. Mor fixed my key and provided excellent customer service. I was in and out within 10 minutes and the price was very affordable. Will definitely recommend this place!

Brenda Fields

Thanks To mike My Life Saved I called him he came in 10 mins and unlocked my car , great coustomer service , great price FOR SURE I RECOMMEND EVERYONE TO USE THEM THANKS SO MUCH !!

Jorge Bautista

Great customer service. Quick service for 4 keys. Low prices.

Kyle Nielsen

Knowing a good locksmith is invaluable, and these are definitely the right people to know. The car stealership wanted almost $500 for a spare key fob and were going to have to order the part, and Howard Safe & Lock got me squared away today for about a third of the price, including programming the fob and laser cutting the emergency key (another specialized function many locksmiths don't have the equipment to do).

Julie Peters

Super friendly and convenient! Glad these guys are in the neighborhood.

Gina Messick

My car key fob broke. You know how expensive they are to replace at dealerships, right?! Went to Howard's and saved nearly half of what it would have cost me to replace it at the dealership! THANK YOU! Great service. Had a few other keys made. Good selection of key blanks. I like this place. AND, the owner works on Sunday. :)

Steve Robinson

James Havens

Best locksmith in Houston! They can do anything you need, fantastic staff as well!

Robert Wilson

I brought my own key blank to have it made into a spare motorcycle key, and after I handed the blank and the original to them, it only took about two seconds for them to replicate the key in their machine - it was awesome to see! The spare works great, with no recutting required. I am very impressed with their service, and the man who worked with me was very nice.

Andrew Hang

I lost the keys to my safe so I needed a locksmith to come out to my shop. Big thanks to Mike for helping out with everything! Great customer service and quick to respond to any questions. Definitely will be coming back!

nathalia lopez

Fast easy and affordable my key on my tahoe broke in half and they gave me a new key withing minutes best experience ever

Ruby Montelongo

Great customer service . Very fast and cheap price for keys . Will come back for sure . They are pro.

Robert Hanks

Would have had five stars except for some reason Howard Safe & Lock has decided to allow a very rude woman to answer the phone. Google maps lists the hours as 8am-11pm, so I called just to verify when the shop closed. The woman who answered acted as if she couldn't be bothered answering a simple question. Fortunately, when we arrived the man working at the counter was very pleasant. There needs to be improvement with the interactions on the telephone with potential customers.


Saved my day!!! I needed a one of a kind duplicate of a mailbox key... And they made it for me!

Alyta J. Cloninger

Mor is an exceptional key maker and really takes pride in providing great customer service and really went the extra mile to help us. He has a great selection of keys and anything you could ever need in case you ever get locked out or anything. Thanks again Mor!

Charleston Gibbs

This guy came and helped me with my key almost 2 hours after his stores closing time. He was very professional and helpful. Most definitely the place to come for your key needs! Good man!!

Life Mechanics

SUPER fast service and they have an whimsically fun selection of house keys. Would definitly come here again!

Homer Samuel

Very good customer service here . Quick efficient and they always smile . Great price for keys too. I’ll be back for sure .

Bob Zeller

Very helpful shop. Rekeyed my padlock so fast I thought they were a magician. They also have a grab-bin of used excellent quality padlocks (American, ABUS etc) for very cheap. Better hours than other storefronts in the neighborhood too.

Melissa Fitzgerald

Easily the fastest, most stress free key copying experience of my life! We needed a commercial studio key made for our new employee and I was in and out of there in less than 45 seconds. Truly. Never going anywhere else for my key and lock needs!!

sydnie manzella

greeted & helped by Mor, super friendly and helpful. couldn’t have better service!

Steven Gallo

This place is great. I was in a jam and Mike was able to perfectly cut some custom keys in a matter of minutes. (You wouldn't be able to get that done at Lowes/Home Depot). The service was great and the price was even better. I can't recommend this local spot enough.

Zachary Balthazar

I was in need of specific keys to be made for occupational usage. To my surprise, upon searching within the Houston area I quickly found that this profession appears to be a yesterday's craft in the past. The actual person who initially let me borrow the keys recommended me to this particular location. Once I walked in I knew instantly I was in the right place. I simply walked in and before I could even remove the keys needed from the key ring, the employee was finished. Literally was an in and out process and i must say, I was very pleased. Future and further needs for keys, I along with you (the reader) highly suggest and recommend this location.

brandan powell

Great guy's and really came through for me. Needed a key for my truck tool box and had been to multiple places and outrageous quotes. They took the time to find the key code and when they couldn't find it, hand filed me a set for a fraction of the other guys quotes. My new go to for anything lock and key.

Eurika Coleman

I was working in the Heights area & needed a locksmith @ the last minute to make two sets of keys. I "googled" locksmiths by zip code & Howard's was one choice. I drove to the virtual location @ the car lot on Shephard & unfortunately, they were close. I was disappointed, briefly! I called the telephone number posted on the door & a wonderful man answered.... it was 10 minutes before they were scheduled to close! I was advised to drive to their 2nd location @ 14th street & he will wait for me. It was bumper to bumper traffic with school zones @ a short distance, when I arrived.... sure enough, he was waiting & remembered my call!!!! The keys were made in 5 seconds. When it was time to pay, he didn't have enough funds to provide change. My keys were given to me @ NO COST from a perfect stranger!!!!!! On top of that, Howard provided valuable knowledge that I will utilize soon. I had been searching high & low for resources. He went a step further & called his acquaintance to verify the information while I waited. Surreal moment, for sure!!!!!! With technology, anyone can do or take advantage of you. Not, Howard Safe & Lock Co.!!!!! I work all over Houston, as of that day, Howard's is my official, one & only, locksmith for eternity. I will refer anyone who inquire!!!!! I walked out of Howard's happy & releived!!!!! Stress free!!!!

Janet North

Came in with a broken key . As soon as the key men looked at that he went straight to key well and grabbed the right blank and cut it for me . Great people. Highly recommend. Thank you Howard stuff .

On behalf of Circa Real Estate, we wanted to thank the technician, David, for coming out and being as professional as they come. He was very thorough, informative and offered expert advise on the work that we requested to be completed. Howard Safe & Lock has always been great to us. No matter who you talk to, everyone knows their stuff! Thank you for exceptional, quick service.

Rahim Abdulmalik

Amazing people, helped me reprogram my car and didn't even charge me

Super Tucker

I thought a lock on my gate was broken by someone trying to break in my yard. It was concerning so I called Howard Safe and Lock and Brian was at my house in 45 minutes. He fixed the problem, soothed my concerns by explaining that weather and not a break-in was responsible, and saved me money in the process. Thanks y’all!

Outstanding customer service, they waited for me even after they were closing. I lost my keys and they made copies for me super fast along with great pricing. Highly recommend!!

K.J. Hohl

The quote to duplicate my Toyota Camry smart key was $145 less than that of another highly rated locksmith, and much, much less than a dealer would charge. When I got to the shop I saw a list of prices and the car keys seemed to be on special, so this may have been more of a bargain than usual. But it was a very good price. Mr. Vidal was extremely nice and professional to deal with. He duplicated my smart key quickly, I would say in 10 minutes or probably less. Somehow I had been under the impression that this took a long time, but not with the modern computer equipment at Howard Safe & Lock. I am pleased to have a new backup key that didn't cost an arm and a leg.

kiss hernandez

Mor was awesome! Irecommend this place to all. Thank you Howard safe and lock

Thomas Harrison

Needed a key made quick on a Sunday. Home Lowpot said they couldn't do it because it wasn't one of the 2 kinds they carried. Found Howard Safe & Lock online. I walked in and was out so quick I forgot the get the gentleman's name. Keys worked perfectly. Highly recommended.

Shirley Ross

I called n advanced to get pricing. They were1/2 the cost of the dealership so I went right over. Service was super fast. Great customer service.

Anthony Gonzalez

Amazing customer service and extremely quick too. Very large selection of locks, keys, keypads, safes, anything with a key - this is the place to go! I think I was in here for a total of 10 seconds to have a copy of a key made. If I could get the same level of service from half of the places in America, we would take over the world

manuel bedolla

Make me a new key for my Kawasaki . In no time and for almost half price then the other companies. Will definitely bring them more business.

Adam Rivon

Dallas Chandler

I thought I would do a review to help business at company I was very pleased with but it seems others have beat me to it. Many others! Lol! Lost key to my RV TRAVEL TRAILER and they were here in 30 minutes. Opened it in 15min, took 5 more minutes to make me 2 new keys and then he was gone with my money which I miss but I'm in my RV again so I'll soon get over it haha. Mike was also kind, courteous and very professional. Thanks guys!

kathleen REICH

Howard Safe & Lock delivered a quality, efficient laser cut key at 1/2 the price of the car dealership! This is where I will do ALL my lock and key business in the future. Other locksmiths charged more and they add a fee for mobile service. Thank you for excellent work.

Marty Meyer

I am not a relative or friend. I was a customer who lost my car key and was stranded. Howard Lock (Carla and Mor) were very polite, extremely professional and quick to respond. Their rates for service were very competitive (I called four Locksmith) and I was very pleased with the outcome. I highly recommend Howard Safe and Lock and think you will be pleased with their service. Regards, Marty

Cileshya Downs

Truly awesome ! He came out prompt and quick as he said and immediately got my key programmed. I worked with another company who spent 3 hours trying to get me a new key fob and all they did was drain the battery completely dead.. Which presented him with another problem .. but he did not leave me hanging .. it took us 2 or more hours to get my battery going , him sticking it out and not giving up shows he really cares for his customers ! This is by far the best customer service ive ever received ..

Nima Dehgan

Great customer service, great price and on time. Mr. MorI did a great job. will use them again.

natalie moore

I have come here many times to get copies of keys. The staff is always very friendly and goes out of there way to make sure the key is an exact match. I will be coming back to Howard Safe & Lock Co. for all my key needs.

Jessica V

Mor was very responsive from the moment of my emergency. He priced matched with another local competitor; the best thing is he got to my location in under 10 minutes, and I had my car keys back in my hand in less than 5. Would highly recommend Howard Safe & Lock!

Eva Overshown Sawe

On this past Good Friday, I stopped by Howard Safe and Lock to have a second key made for my Nissan Versa. The owner greeted me as I came in and handle my request in less than 10 minutes, although they appeared to be pretty busy with many customers. I was happy with the attention and service I received.

Rodney Andry

Lifesaver. Having one key sucks. Great prices.

justice currey

Must say this is the best locksmith I’ve ever been to. Their locksmiths have great customer service and were able to assist me well past regular operating hours. All this and they had surprisingly low rates.

jennifer waters

I locked myself out of my house this morning, no phone, no wallet, still wearing Pj's, lol. My neighbors lent me their phone. I called the first number. I'm glad I did. David came, got right in, plus, was super cool, too. I have anxiety issues, so being locked out crippled me. Thank ya'll so much. I do plan on using their services again(re-key of the house), but if ever you need someone to fix your boneheaded problems, these are the guys to call. Amazing. I'll always give my business to good people .

Tracy Solis

Mor is a life saver I lost my truck key and left my wallet in the car he came with in 10 min unlocked and made me new keys. He was kind professional and on time what more can you ask for from a professional like him! If I could give 10 stars I would

Keshon King

5 stars because this company is awesome! Great customer service. I needed to get a new key for my car and get it programmed before I go out of town tomorrow. The owner was closing up for the night, but stayed open a little later until I got there to re program my key. He also allowed me to test everything out before paying. Reccomened to anyone needing a locksmith!

Jessi Lanier

He came quicker than the estimated time which was fantastic!! He went straight to work with no problems at a reasonable price. I now have another key for my car!

Ryan Webb

Well my day at work started off fine until one of our warehouse guys went to start our forklift and snapped the key in half, I fished out the other half of the key and took it and the ignition straight to Howard safe and lock. Unfortunately he didn’t have the exact blank To match up with our Old key but since I had the ignition he was able to find a key that would fit which was awesome. Whenever it was time to pay though I only had a $50 bill he didn’t have enough change to break the 50 so he gave me the key for free . I highly recommend you go see the nice folks here I promise they will take good care of you !!! Thanks again to the great staff. Thanks Mckillican American Staff

Great and super fast service. Convenient location. In and out in a flash. The guy who helped me was very friendly.

Sara Rodriguez

Awesome, awesome service. I brought them my Gucci vintage leather wristlet evening flap clutch with a lock that I couldn’t open. Not only I couldn’t open Gucci in Houston galleria and in New York! Howard Safe & Lock was able to open it in less then two minutes. Talk about knowledge in locks, I’m a forever client of them from now on it’s worth my drive. Nice customer service and responsive to any questions you may have. Thank you , thank you my wristlet will not be sitting in my closet anymore.

Catherine Jackson

I recently visited Howard Safe and Lock and received the best customer service and pricing. I only needed a copy of my car key, inwhich I thought it would of been a 15 minute wait. I was out in 5 minutes !! If you need pompt and affordable prices , use their services !!

Nora Atkinson

They came out same-day and even called to let me know they could be early to my appointment window. They fixed an antique crystal bathroom door knob and installed a new code-key front door lock. Service was fast, friendly, and efficient. This is our second time using Howard Safe & Lock. They have provided stellar service both times on different projects. Highly recommend!

Roberto Martinez

My key broke in half at the parking lot Bank of America in the Heights 12:50pm. I called Howard safe & Lock and they came over to my car within 30 minutes. The technician Mor kept me update how far he was and what time he would be there. Mor made my key in less than a minute and I was on the road again. I think it was a bit over price but the communication skills, customer service and quickness paid it off. I will definitely give them a call in the future!! Thanks Mor for your help.
