Welcome To AA Lock & Key
"Excellent interaction with an outstanding locksmith! Had an old mortis lock that he worked with until he figured it out and fixed it. Price for labor was more than fair. AA Lock & Key is my ONLY locksmith. Thanks."
"These folks are completely honest and deeply rooted in the community. This is not just a storefront, it is a business of many years, based at a family that cares. Quality and safety is what I want in locks and security systems. (I controlled access for 165 buildings and 500 employees throughout CT for a major utility for years)."

Why should we (not the big box stores ) cut your keys?
At AA Lock & Key, we have the capability to cut "factory" quality keys on our computerized machines (extra charges apply). What does this mean to our customers? Many times our customers will come to our office with a copy of a copy of a key. As keys are duplicated from other than the original, the integrity of the key is lost. The cuts are not to proper depths and may not work in the intended lock. A factory quality key is cut from the exact computerized measurements on our high quality key code machines.
AA Lock & Key can also assist you with key duplications for any type of lock system. Come to our showroom today!
DAVE VESSELS, CEO, Education Coordinator for Yankee Security Convention, Inc.
Dave serves as Education Coordinator for the Yankee Security Convention, Inc., a not-for-profit trade organization dedicated to the further learning and industry awareness of locksmith professionals in the Northeast Region of the country. After a year of work by many dedicated volunteers in the locksmithing industry, the Yankee Security Convention has culminated in 3 days of classes and 2 days of convention. Yankee offered a great time to meet new people in the field and greet old friends. Everyone's comments about the show were very positive. Class attendance averaged about 55 students per day taking classes and over 900 people attending the 2 day trade show. Attendees came from as far away as Pennsylvania and Kentucky. There were about 90 exhibitors~all were very happy with the turnout of attendees and their interest in the newest products on the market. Dave noticed definite tendencies away from mechanical locks and many items showcased around keyless entry, including stand alone, hardwired and wireless.
