Emergency Locksmith

Had a great experience with San Francisco Advantage Locksmith today -- fabulous service, and on a Sunday, too! Todd was prompt, courteous, efficient, and explained everything very well as he did his work. I liked that they promptly emailed me a receipt -- a nice touch. I would not hesitate to recommend them, and would absolutely use them again San Francisco Advantage Locksmith is the company to call.

Locks & Locksmith in San Francisco, Ca

I’m writing this review in the hope that it would benefit someone! So, being quite clumsy, I knew I’d dropped the keys somewhere. I walk for around 6 miles from work to home and I simply didn’t have the strength to retrace my steps. I decided to call San Francisco Advantage Locksmith. A friendly rep answered at once. He was even nice enough to give me a price quote over phone after I sent him a picture of the lock. David got there within the promised time and I watched amazed as he got a new key made within minutes using equipment from his van! For fast, reliable and pocket-friendly service in San Francisco, CA, there can be no better choice than San Francisco Advantage Locksmith! FIVE STARS!!! Recommend it!

24 Hours Locksmith San Francisco, Ca

So, I needed a new lock. After enquiring in several stores, I finally struck a good bargain down at a hardware shop. But what came after was something I didn’t anticipate! I’ve attempted lock installations on my windows a couple of times, and was confident I could nail this one too. An hour later, as I looked down at the now-completely-ruined-lock, it was clear that I shouldn’t have been this over-confident at my abilities. I decided to call a locksmith from San Francisco Advantage Locksmith to take a look at the damage I’d done on the lock and the door. Turns out, it wasn’t entirely my fault. The lock I was sold was a completely useless one to begin with. That was 50 bucks right down the drain! Thanks to David from San Francisco Advantage Locksmith for all the help! He installed a good quality lock on my front door within minutes!!! The price for the lock and the service fee didn’t cost me as much as it did earlier! Should have called David up on 415-366-5873 the first time, instead of wasting my time, energy and money….The BEST in San Francisco, CA! Make the smart choice and leave the locksmithing to the experts from San Francisco Advantage Locksmith!

Affordable Locksmith in San Francisco, Ca

After a quick online search, I chose San Francisco Advantage Locksmith! And I’m so glad I did. I’ve never met a locksmith who’s as courteous and knowledgeable as Mark! He made it a point to explain what has gone wrong with my locks and why ( without even asking) and gave me great advice on maintaining my new locks. Everything was done at a good price. He even made a spare key for the new lock for free! We all need understanding, and professional locksmiths such as Mark! In my opinion, San Francisco Advantage Locksmith is the best in San Francisco, CA and I’m definitely calling them again, if the need arises! Highly recommend their service!

by Kimberly Smith on 8/7/2017


Sadly, the new lock I installed on my door got busted within two weeks. Turns out, the locksmith who had the lock installed, not only did a poor job with the installation but also charged me a bomb for a poor-quality lock. I was furious! But there was no use now! If only I had picked San Francisco Advantage Locksmith for the installation process. These guys are indefinitely the best in San Francisco, CA. Ralph discarded the useless lock and fitted a new and better version. The total bill didn’t even come up to half of what the previous locksmith charged me! As an added bonus, they’ve got great deals on their website to further cut down the bills. Five stars for the service and pricing! THE BEST in San Francisco, CA

Fantastic Locksmith Company

AMAZING! Like everyone else online, Edwardo came to the rescue and and I thought he was exceptional. I locked myself out of an office at work. When I called him for a quote, he asked that I take a picture of the lock and door and text it to him so he could assess the situation and call me back. WOW. A locksmith who receives texts? I was impressed with just that! He called me back within minutes. Even though it was a hardcore MultiTLock, he said he'd tried to do it for the minimal cost of $59 and try to do as little damage to the lock and the door as possible so that I could not incur more costs. He suggest that we just start there.WOW again. It was not an emergency situation and Edwardo said someone would be by in a couple of hours. I didn't even notice the time and HE CALLED to follow up with me and apologized for the delay. Third WOW. He came and resolved in the problem in less than 2 minutes! No new lock needed and no damage to the door. He even took credit cards and charged it right away and emailed me the receipt within minutes. Every service in world should run their company like Edwardo: COURTEOUS, COMMUNICATIVE, HONEST, MODERN, and RELIABLE. This company is a rare gem. So nice to know that there are people in the San Francisco, CA that take pride in what they do and actually care! Thanks, San Francisco Advantage Locksmith, Best Locksmith Company in San Francisco, CA.

Thanks Affordable Locksmith Services

OMFG... thank you, thank you, thank you San Francisco Advantage Locksmith!!!! literally turned what could have been a mini meltdown and a horrible day into sunshine and butterflies. Tony the guy who came to help me out from San Francisco Advantage Locksmith only left me waiting like 20 minutes even though when I called he was on the UES. He was so nice and popped the door open in a jiffy for a flat rate of... wait for it... 49 bucks. that's kind of amazing. he even fixed my door so that I never automatically get locked out again. Huzzah!!! but San Francisco Advantage Locksmith is the company to call when you need them. 415-366-5873.

Best Locksmith in San Francisco, Ca

Hired San Francisco Advantage Locksmith last weekend and I’m floored by their service and professionalism. I needed an extra set of keys for the lock but couldn’t meet them until 6 30 pm, which seemed to be no problem for them. Showed up right on time and made keys out of his mobile workshop. They were a perfect fit! Thanks for the prompt and precise work. The next time I need a locksmith in San Francisco, it will be San Francisco Advantage Locksmith. Have saved their number 415-366-5873 in my phone book, just in case.

Great Customer Service

Great locksmith – and excellent prices! I called nearly 3 other locksmiths for the job, but the price quoted by San Francisco Advantage Locksmith was the lowest. Without hesitance, I hired them. The technician arrived within 20 minutes and was very friendly and helpful. There were some adjustments to be made on the fly, but Kevin didn’t charge us anything extra for additional labor. The new locks and fixed door knobs work perfectly and better than they ever did – and it’s all thanks to Kevin. We’ll definitely use San Francisco Advantage Locksmith the next time we need a locksmith in San Francisco, CA….

Great Locksmith Service in San Francisco, Ca

I literally have nothing bad to say about these San Francisco Advantage Locksmith. My roommate and I just moved into a new place in San Francisco, CA and wanted to get an extra dead bolt added to our door. I filled out the form on the San Francisco Advantage Locksmith website and within 20 minutes Shon had emailed me and called me. He was really chill about working around my crazy schedule and was able to come to our place on Saturday, after I had been in touch on Thursday. When he came to our apartment he gave us the whole rundown of all of our options and was very honest and straight forward with us about what he thought we needed--he wasn't trying to sell us something we didn't need. He was at our place for about 45 minutes but most of that was because my roommate and I kept talking to him. Not only is he amazing at his job, he's super personable and charming--not exactly something you expect from your typical locksmith. To sum up, USE THESE GUYS! So glad we did. San Francisco Advantage Locksmith is the company to call in San Francisco, CA.

24 Hours Locksmith San Francisco, Ca

Super quick service! Lewis got there within fifteen minutes and the entire door installation took less than an hour. I’d cleared a 5-hour slot to oversee the work for nothing!

Recommend them to all those who’re looking for a locksmith in San Francisco, CA! Call them up on 415-366-5873 if you need more details.

Friendly Fast & Effective Locksmith Company

San Francisco Advantage Locksmith is great! Had a high security lock installed. Being extremely difficult to pick or copy at the local store, it added an extra layer of security to my home. Thanks for coming up with the suggestion and also offering me a great price on the lock! The technician was really passionate about his job and it really shows in the outcome. In my honest opinion, they’re the best in San Francisco, CA 94108. TEN on TEN!

24 Hours Locksmith San Francisco, Ca

I can't recommend these San Francisco Advantage Locksmith ! I locked myself and my dog out on a cold day. was prompt, friendly, and really went above and beyond. He even changed a light bulb that I couldn't reach while he was here. I hope I don't need a locksmith again, but if I do, I wouldn't call anyone else. Thank you!

Thanks San Francisco Advantage Locksmith

After being asked time and again by my wife about getting the locks replaced on the front door, I finally ran out of excuses. Locksmiths were expensive, and having just lost a job, it was difficult as it was to make ends meet. But she did have a point, home security was important! And so I finally decided to get it done.. A few hours of web surfing later, I chose San Francisco Advantage Locksmith based on the positive reviews enlisted online. And I must say, all those delays and fear of being slapped with a heavy bill turned out to be pointless. San Francisco Advantage Locksmith charged me fifty bucks for a job that would have cost me over a hundred elsewhere. Economical pricing! Perfect for the budget-conscious people in San Francisco, CA! Give them a try!! FIVE STARS for their affordability!

Day & Night Locksmith Service

San Francisco Advantage Locksmith is the BEST, hands down. The technician they sent was super knowledgeable, friendly, fast and thorough with his job. I had mistakenly ordered the wrong key for my car online believing that I had received a great deal. Jack politely explained what went wrong and why it wouldn’t work. He then told me he’ll get what I wanted and the price quoted was the best I could find anywhere. He got the key made quickly and it worked amazingly. If I ever need this sort of work done in San Francisco, CA 94108, I will definitely come back to San Francisco Advantage Locksmith. Deserves FIVE STARs!

Day & Night Locksmith Service

I can't recommend San Francisco Advantage Locksmith enough. Jay is honest and affordable about his pricing, prompt to appointments, intelligent, fun to chat with while he works, and you can just tell is a sincere, nice, really good guy. He's one of the few businesses I recommend without hesitation and sometimes without even prompting to anyone I know who's just moved into a new place or is having any kind of lock issue. He's done two units and the main doors in my building so far, and is the go-to guy for me with any lock / door / security issues. Call them: 415-366-5873.

Awesome Locksmith Company

Now I don’t wanna ramble on here. Let’s keep this short and snappy. I called San Francisco Advantage Locksmith and as usual, these guys were right on time. It was I who wasn’t! After being stuck in an extended office meeting, I completely forgot that I had an appointment with Jamie at 8 pm. Despite receiving no information from me, I found Jamie waiting outside my door at 8:15 pm. Such dedication!! I’m truly amazed!!! Thanks to Jamie for being so patient! He didn’t even seem bothered that I’d wasted his time.. I don’t think any other locksmith could have been this accommodative! Five stars for excellent customer service. In my opinion, San Francisco Advantage Locksmith is the No.1 firm in San Francisco, CA. Call them on 415-366-5873 and you’ll know just how efficient Jamie and his team is!

Great Customer Service

I called San Francisco Advantage Locksmith to fix a broken garage door lock and I received excellent service. The technician, Ed, did an amazing job and was so friendly. I could tell from the way he talked about his work that he absolutely loved it. His attention to detail stunned me. There was a small patch of rust on the side of the door that he spotted and fixed up right away. If you need perfection, you won’t get it from any other locksmith in San Francisco. Call 415-366-5873, trust me, they’re the best!

Reliable Locksmith in San Francisco, Ca

"Is it weird I almost want to get locked out again so I can call Lockbusters? Yeah, my experience was that great. After coming home at 2am beers may or may not have been involved, I soon realized that a lock on my door that I didn't have a key for had decided it didn't like being taped down, and chose to unlock itself at that very inopportune moment. That next morning, kicking the door in with my boots, attacking it with pink screwdrivers and attempting to scale the fire escape all failed. Defeated, I looked up a lock smith online to come rescue me. I called San Francisco Advantage Locksmith and reqwest a service the tech called me right back, told me he would be there in 20 minutes. He was at my apartment right on the dot and busted my door open in literally less than 2 min. I was sorta embarrassed at how easily he did it though he assured me the lock had definitely flipped. For a little extra he sorted me out with a new lock and keys in less than 3 minutes and also fixed my sticky door knob. 5 minutes TOTAL I was back in my apartment with my feet up and had also gotten to check off a niggly to-do off my apartment repair list. No muss, no fuss and an A+ experience to cap off what had been a pretty shizzy night of homelessness. I wouldn't call or recommend anyone else. Thanks, San Francisco Advantage Locksmith. # 415-366-5873 if you will need any Locksmith Service."

Fast & Professional Locksmith

I had an urgent meeting to attend in the next one hour. But it was one of those days that had bad luck written all over it. First, I spent nearly 5 minutes trying to get my door to lock. The lock was quite old and it was finally starting to show its signs. Being already late, I quickly rushed to my car, fumbled for my car keys and when I turned the car key in the lock, it snapped! Call it fate or blame it on the force I exerted on the key, either way I didn’t feel as helpless as I did at that moment. In a sheer bid of desperation, I called up San Francisco Advantage Locksmith after finding their website listed online. The technician seemed friendly and promised me that someone will be over to my place soon. I barely waited for 10 minutes when they sent Dave over. He carefully took out the broken pieces, and crafted a copy key right there within a few minutes! I couldn’t believe it. Stunned by the level of service, I even scheduled an appointment for the following evening and asked Dave to give my home locks a quick once-over. Ever since that day, I’ve never switched over to another firm in San Francisco, CA. San Francisco Advantage Locksmith is simply the best!

These San Francisco Advantage Locksmith really are the best. Online not lying. Came exactly on time, cut off my Kryptonite bike lock pretty quickly once we found a power source for the electric drill/saw. Cleaned up everything and even offered to give my neighbor a coupon for services after she let us use her electric outlet mine was too far from the bike. SO NICE & GENUINE. Would not hesitate to come back to them. Really very impressed. They'll even take a credit card by swiping it on their phone :):):)

24/7 Locksmith in San Francisco, Ca

Hired San Francisco Advantage Locksmith to rekey the locks throughout the apartment complex. On time, polite and very professional, Jeff got the job done in less than two hours. I was very impressed with his speed and more so with his focus on customer service. Though I’d only asked him to rekey the lock on the gate, Jeff went above and beyond fine tuning the gate hinge to make sure it didn’t slam shut and wake everyone up. So considerate and helpful! I hope this review helped you gain an insight on the competence of San Francisco Advantage Locksmith. Trust me, they’re the BEST in San Francisco, CA, so do give them a shot.

Ten on Ten for San Francisco Advantage Locksmith. Why? Came out to help me at 11 pm on a national holiday. Most locksmiths in San Francisco were either unavailable or quoted twice the normal rate stating special circumstances. Thankfully, I found them online and received immediate assistance. Jeff got my lock working in no time. I slept peacefully that night, knowing that no one was going to walk right through the unlocked doors. Best service. Best prices. Best locksmith in the whole of San Francisco, CA! Highly recommend!

Affordable Locksmith in San Francisco, Ca

Happy with the services provided by San Francisco Advantage Locksmith! This is probably the first time I’ve ever said that about a locksmith. All the other locksmiths I’ve dealt with in the past, gave me a million reasons to complain about. But not San Francisco Advantage Locksmith! These guys were total pros! They completed the repairs on the door in no time and replaced the damaged lock with a brand new deadbolt. I still remember how I’d spent over a hundred bucks over the lock I was now throwing away. But the new lock didn’t even cost me half of it. To top it all, it was definitely of a better build and quality. Excellent products at unbeatable prices! No.1 in San Francisco, CA, no doubt!

Mobile Locksmith in San Francisco, Ca

San Francisco Advantage Locksmith is great! The prices, especially, are reasonable and seem to fit right into my budget! Before turning into San Francisco Advantage Locksmith’s loyal customer, I’ve had quite a few miserable experiences. Here's one: there was this shop in San Francisco, CA (I don’t exactly recall its name) that claimed to offer services at rock-bottom prices. They say that if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is! But the lucrative prices clouded my judgment and I called them up for a simple lock repair job. At the end of it all, I’d spent around $500 on a totally unnecessary smart lock, some new locks on my windows and a brand new chain lock. I didn’t feel cheated at that point. But when the smart lock stopped working within the next two weeks, and the security door chain popped out of its socket, that’s when I felt cheated! Eric from San Francisco Advantage Locksmith was sympathetic and told me that it was a common practice among most locksmiths to quote cheap rates initially and find ways to scam customers later. Thanks to Eric, all the mess was cleared up! And the prices? Just what I was looking for! San Francisco Advantage Locksmith is the BEST in San Francisco, CA!!! Call them up - 415-366-5873 - I’m sure you’ll love their service!!!

Best Locksmith in San Francisco, Ca

San Francisco Advantage Locksmith is amazing! We had a break-in and needed the locks changed immediately. Most locksmiths in San Francisco, CA 94108 that we called up gave us 4-hour or 8-hour windows – but I wasn’t willing to sit around the whole day waiting for their arrival with zero protection on my property. Thankfully, nearly a dozen calls later, San Francisco Advantage Locksmith agreed to provide what I was looking for. Dave was prompt, professional and did an incredible job. He assured me that the locks are nearly break-proof and couldn’t be manipulated as easily. And sure enough, I could see the clear difference between the old locks that got destroyed by the miscreants and the new ones. Got it all done at a great price!
