"I have used Artie's since we moved to Fairfax City in 1980. They have re-keyed every house I have lived in and provided a ton of spare keys for a variety of cars and locks. Yesterday I needed extra keys for the house, easily done and extra keys for a 2018 Chevrolet. The truck keys required programming. Artie's tried several times to program the keys and it wasn't working but they found another way and it was successful. I am thrilled they didn't close because there is a wealth of knowledge here that shouldn't be lost."

"Locked myself out of my house last Friday and called Artie's for help. In about 10 minutes Doug showed up with a smile on his face and a friendly demeanor. However, I had already found a spare key outside the house. Doug didn't mind it at all and said I didn't owe him anything even if he drove to my house. Awesome! Thanks, Artie's!"

"Wow! My deadlock on my front door broke. The key turned, but the bold did not move. I found out my deadbolt's tailpiece broke. It is that flat rod from front to back. You can't get one from Lowes or Home Depot. I went to another locksmith store; they couldn't help. I called up Artie's Lock"

"If you want great service from a local, independently owned small business, Artie's is the way to go. My front entry door handle was having a lot of problems, with the latch bolt not fully retracting and the outside thumb piece that depressed it sticking and/or moving erratically. After I almost had to literally break down the door one night to enter the house, I called Artie's for service, based on the excellent recommendations it received in Yelp and elsewhere. Justin arrived exactly on time, diagnosed the problem, and quickly installed a new door handle set that I had already purchased. I found Justin to be both friendly and a professional who knew exactly what he was doing. In particular I appreciated that, instead of just automatically installing the new door handle, he first checked whether the existing one could be repaired instead of replaced. The price for the service was very reasonable. I have no hesitation recommending Artie's for any locksmith work, given the excellent job they did at my house."
