Door Locks, Charlotte, NCPosted by Charlotte LocksmithSeptember 21st, 2021
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.

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!

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.

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.

Excellent meticulous work. Follow up was outstanding. Highly recommend.

Had them come out to change out locks on my house. They were punctual, quality of work was top notch, and they were very affordable. While out they also talked to me about adding a security system with cameras which I ended up moving forward with several weeks later. Refreshing to work with local companies that do what they say they are going to do when they say they will do it. Thanks!!

Incredible service!! We called Eastway Lock and Key when we accidentally locked ourselves out of our house. They responded right away and were at our house in less than 30 minutes. Daniel was great to work with and got us back in our house in no time. Love the fact they are locally owned and operated as well!

I’ve used Eastway Lock and Key for the last 20 years and feel that their customer service and work has always exceeded my expectations. Most recently I had a home alarm issue which they promptly sent someone later that day to fix. Thank you

I contacted Eastway Lock & Key to assist me with rekeying the locks on my grandmother's house, after she had some remodeling. The technician that was sent out was knowledgeable, quick and very courteous.They may not be the cheapest in-town, but when it comes to safety I don't want cheap....I want efficiency and comfort in knowing my family is safe. I highly recommend this company!!

We needed our business locks changed in a hurry. I called two other companies, both of which advertised emergency service but were far from being able to provide it. So happy I kept dialing and found Eastway--they were professional on the phone, amazingly fast at getting to my business, and absolutely helpful, competent and friendly upon arrival and through the process. I would NEVER consider calling anyone but Eastway in the future.

I called the location to confirm something with my account and the gentleman was very friendly and helpful to get me an answer. I went into the location to have keys made and everyone had awesome customer service!

I took my Kawasaki Motorcycle key to AKM Locksmith on Monroe Rd to have a copy made. They indicated it was a really difficult key to copy and wanted $45 with me providing the blank. So I declined and took my blank and master to Eastway. They made a perfect copy and charged me $4. They will get my repeat business.

Had a replacement Ford key made. Very prompt and courteous service.

The locks on my pickup truck tool boxes were not working, Took truck in this morning and 30 minutes later, I left a very happy customer. We've used Eastway several times over the years with excellent results. Topnotch organization with great people, Technician Fields especially!.

Got great service today. The guys on staff took the time needed to find and cut an obscure key for me today. I wouldn't have trusted it w/ anyone else. Thank you!

I went for duplicate car key for my 2014 Ford Escape. The receptionist was super friendly and Miro, the owner was professional and nice. Key works great. He also helped me figure out how to connect my phone to bluetooth gps when the sales person at Ford couldn't.They also have the cutest house keys I haven't seen other places.
