Antique padlocks and other vintage mechanisms can be damaged if picked with the wrong tool or by someone who doesn't know what they're doing. We carry the proper tools we need for any job with us at all times, and we know how to handle your lock carefully to protect its function and integrity.

Needing a key fit for that lock? We can also fit keys to most antique locks or work with you to find local dealers who may carry the right type of key.

Need a Lock Repaired?

Preserving the quality and character of a piece of furniture or antique door often means maintaining the original locks that were installed in the piece, but if the lock isn't functioning properly, what should you do? If a lock is in need of lubrication, or common mechanical repair, we can fix even the oldest lock quite easily. However, locks requiring major repair with replacement pieces may be more difficult to fix.

While many lock replacement pieces can be hard to find for specific types of antiques, we will do everything we can do repair the lock with creative solutions or can gladly install a similar lock found from other sources.
