Business History
The Lock Doctor Corporation was formed on Oct 1, 1993 by the merging of two independent locksmith companies. The one company, Valle Vista Hardware, was started by Bob Turner in the spring of 1978. After a few years of business, the hardware store started a mobil locksmith service. The retail and mobil service began to grow. The other company, The Lock Doctor, was started by Rick Carlson in January of 1990. Rick established his business in a small room next to a local barber shop. In 1990 Bob sold the hardware business and started a mobil locksmith service called Summit Lock & Key. Rick and Bob were both feeling the need to expand past thier one person operations. They needed either employees or a partnership. On October 1, 1993 Bob & Rick merged their two operations into one business, The Lock Doctor, Inc.

GREAT SERVICE!!! Once again the "Lock Doctor" has gone above and beyond on service for us at Storage Plus. We have used your technicians on numerous occasions and you always do a great job and your guys are knowledgeable as well as pleasant to have around our business and our customers. Thanks again for your prompt and courteous service!




I have an old Remmington Rand safe that was in our house when we bought it two years ago. I had no idea what the combination was or how to open it. I called Lock Doctor and they gave me a couple of combination suggestions but none of them worked. I then made an appointment for them to come to my house to see if they could open it. After about a half hour the safe was open and they had the combination for me to use in the future. Lock Doctor was professional, knowledgeable, courteous, and friendly. I will definitely be using them again.
