Door Locks, Charlotte, NCPosted by Charlotte LocksmithNovember 14th, 2022
Are you using the best locks on your doors?
There are many kinds of locks for many kinds of doors – but how do you know which door locks are right for your needs? To help make your decision easier, we’ve provided explanations on two types of door locks that we provide to customers that can help you determine what best suits your needs.
Cypher Lock: Used extensively in government offices around the world, Cypher Locks are vandal resistant. These door locks use keypads that are connected to a controller whose codes can only be changed by physically plugging different conductors into the controller in a specific order. Without having physical access to the controller (which is mounted on the secure side of the door), it is impossible to hack into these locks, as the controllers are not connected to a network, nor does a computer program them. If safety matters most to you, look no further than Cypher Locks for your business or your most precious belongings.
Push button Lock: If you are looking for keyless entry that’s very secure, but not quite as Fort Knox as a Cypher Lock, push button door locks are a solid choice. You, as the owner, set up the combination on the touch keypad and can only gain access into the lock with the correct code. Like Cypher Locks they also have no wiring and use extremely long-life batteries. Codes can be any combination of letters or numbers and can have more than one code to grant access if desired.
Their customer service and work has always exceeded my expectations.

Got locked out of my house on a Sunday before Memorial Day in the rain…worst possible timing. Tracy came to the rescue and was at my house in less than 30 minutes, got me in the house within 5, and was so helpful and kind. Worth every penny, would highly recommend!

I went to this location needing my house key copy my house key I couldn't copy it at Lowes.. The lady on the phon whom on I talked was very friendly as well the gentleman who greeted me was also friendly and and very polite. They charged me a very fair price to make a copy of my key The only downside about Eastway Lock & Key, Inc is that they don't have another store closer to the South Carolina state line in southern Charlotte.

I have been using the services of Eastway Lock and Key for more than 20 years and have never been disappointed. I am moving to a new house and planned on having Medico locks installed at a future date but when I misplaced the regular house keys today, I thought why not have new locks installed now. I called Eastway and they said they could schedule to have at least one door done today and replace the other locks at a later time. Of course it is Friday afternoon and when Kenny from Eastway called he had been in the field all day and had been given no information about what was to be installed. It was confusing but he got it straightened out and arrived with the needed equipment about the time the rest of the world was on their way home. He completed the job as a professional and checked with me about which locks I wanted for each door when he returned. He also noticed another door from the master bedroom that opens onto the patio that I had forgotten. (I had told him 3 doors but there are actually 4). As I said, I have never been disappointed and Kenny really went beyond expectations today. It is good to know that Eastway Lock and Key is as dependable today as it was in 1997-98, when I had my first Medico locks installed.

Just wanted to give some credit to Tracy who was the technician that responded to my service call to Eastway L&K, he was very prompt and friendly in his response and explained thoroughly what I could expect and costs, ETA, etc. Tracy was also upfront that he was on his way to another call that he had before me and let me know what side of town so I had an idea of about how long I’d be sitting with my kids locked out of my house! He called back when done with the other call only a few minutes later to say he was on his way. Very professional and courteous; prompt in correspondence and honest. Thank you again!

Last night I called from Freedom Park after discovering I had locked my keys in the car...AJ missed my call but ended up calling back! He was quick, personable, funny and professional. While I found my keys outside of my car in the park, my car door was opened without damage AND I would call for Eastway’s service again, in a heart beat. Thank you, AJ for making a miserable situation way more palatable!

They were amazing! I've called around to a few places and Eastway Lock & Key were the friendliest, fastest, most professional, and most affordable option. They were truly a lifesaver and came out to my car right away and the mechanic was extremely helpful. I highly recommend them!
12:48 25 May 21
Outstanding response time, friendly, professional and cost effective! Brian was AMAZING!

I had two locks re-keyed to match an existing key. They got it done in about 10 minutes while I waited, and both locks work great. At about $17 per lock it was definitely worth it as I have zero knowledge on how to do it myself. Quick, quality service from Eastway. 👍🏻

Excellent experience with Eastway. Every technician has always been prompt and courteous. They are the ONLY locksmith company I use in the Charlotte area.

I went to Home Depot to try to get some keys for a church mailbox made. They told me they weren't able to do it. I went to Eastway Lock & Key and they were able to make them. I had 3 copies made and had no problems using any of them. They do have a setup outside for service due to COVID, and it was convenient and quick.

Very professional. Worked with me by phone to help my senior citizen parent . Gave good feedback on overall safety.

I called Eastway Lock & Key on Tuesday 1/19/21 because the knob to our front door was falling off. The put the call into their service department, for repair that same day. Brian called me to let me know when he would was bout 30 minutes from arriving. After Brian arrived and looked at the door, he said that we would need a entire new knob assembly ( Please excuse my wording, I am not sure what all the parts are called.) Brian said that he would check at the shop to see if they had something that would work, and luckily they did. Brian came back THAT SAME DAY to do the repair. It look some time, and Brian kept checking with me along the way, to let me know how much longer it was going to take.I do have to say at the end of the job, Brian had me check the door and would not leave until I was completely satisficed!!! I would highly recommend Eastway Lock & Key ( And ask for Brian ... I know I will from now on!)

The team sent out a Locksmith the same day I called. Within an hour the locksmith, who was great, arrived. He was professional, very friendly, rekeyed two locks, and made the extra keys needed. I would use Eastway Lock and Key again.

I had a trailer hitch locked onto my vehicle, but no key to remove it. Drove it over and they had it off in short order. Took 2 of them, apparently it was a tough lock and also in a very awkward position to work on. But they were super professional and friendly. I'm thinking there's a good reason they've been around *forever* in Charlotte. Would not hesitate to use them again. Awesome service!!!

I just have to brag about an experience I just had with Daniel at Eastway Lock and Key. I locked my purse, keys and phone in my trunk while loading groceries. Several people were trying to pop my door open with no luck. LIKE THE LOCKSMITH ANGEL THAT HE IS, Daniel walked up out of nowhere offering to help and within minutes, I was in my car and on my way home. Thank you Daniel - you SAVED my day and my groceries!!!

Called Amanda late this morning and Kenny showed up with everything needed for the job after lunch. Amanda was pleasant and efficient. Kenny is clearly a Master Locksmith. My crawlspace door wouldn't latch. Friendly, courteous, efficient, and wearing appropriate PPE. The work was done quickly and completely. The price was very reasonable for the quality and efficiency of the work. Please accept my thanks and express my appreciation to Kenny, Bosses. My experience is that Amanda is outstanding and that Kenny is the best locksmith I've ever encountered. Your blessed to have such superstars representing your company.
