Customer Reviews



Pop-A-Lock of Columbus is a small part of the biggest locksmith franchise in the country.

Since opening our doors in 1994, we've made it our life's work to be there to open your doors. Because of our commitment to the communities in which we live and call home, we not only stretch across this great nation, but now we also have franchises on two continents. Thankfully, our methods have helped us obtain great success and an even greater reputation. We believe that it is both our dedication to customer service and quality locksmith work that has helped us grow throughout the years. Our locksmiths are highly trained, well supplied, and completely dedicated to making sure that every customer they meet is satisfied and safer when our job is done. 

We are dedicated to customer service and we understand how important your time is.

In our experiences, we've found that people don’t typically think about their locks until there is an actual problem that needs to be addressed. If that problem does come to fruition, we know that it can make life very stressful and unless the situation is handled quickly, it can put a damper on your plans or, in some cases, ruin your day completely. Naturally, we feel that we are best qualified for these types of unfortunate occurrences and we are always here to help. That’s what we at Pop-A-Lock of Columbus specialize in and we understand that time is always a factor. We will make sure all of your needs are handled with care, compassion, and diligence to get you back to normality as soon as possible.

We are open 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, and serve the entire city of Columbus and the surrounding areas. If you happen to accidentally lock yourself out of your car while you’ve been enjoying a beautiful day at the Chattahoochee River Walk, we can come to you and happily unlock your door. Lost keys? We've got you covered! If you've lost your keys somewhere along the longest urban whitewater rafting course in the world, we can replace them for you. If you’re moving into a new house during a holiday weekend, we can install new locks. With Pop-A-Lock of Columbus, you can rest assured that we will always be there to help you in your time of need. 

Beware of fraudulent locksmiths who arrive late and charge outrageous prices.

We have heard horror stories of other non-reputable locksmiths using drills to break locks and then charging unknowing clients three times more to replace their faulty equipment. Don't let their inexperience and negligence affect your home, vehicle, or business. The best way to avoid any kind of inadequate locksmith service is to get to know your local, certified locksmiths. Feel free to come to our office and meet our friendly staff and we’ll help you get prepared for the next time you might need a locksmith. We also feel that recognizing a friendly face that you know and trust will help minimize the stress of a situation whenever we are called upon to help.
