Our Customers Say it Best

What a great experience this was!! I didn't realize until after he was gone, and I read his business card that I had the pleasure of meeting the President Mr. Larry Backes, who actually did the job himself. What a great guy !! Amazingly pleasant, friendly and so helpful. Answered questions for me and took a look at two others areas that weren't on the original job call. Can't beat the price and professionalism. Excellence & Quality. Larry has a great welcoming and warm personality. Highly recommended!

Our locksmith, Matt, did a great job replacing old knobs with new ones. He was friendly, professional, and made sure that everything was installed to our liking before leaving. I highly recommend The Flying Locksmiths of SW CT. For those curious about price, it’s $25/lock.

I would hire this company back in a minute! The technician was on time and worked in cold weather with a great disposition. He gave me new keys for a door and fixed another door so It would open and close. I am very happy and as I said would definitely use this company again!!! I also needed to get this done right away and got an appointment quickly.

Very competent did the job pleasent to interact with will call him again.

Matt did an excellent job! He was on time, re-keyed my lock In less than 20 minutes, and gave me some helpful advice on upgrading my locks. A very fair price, too. I?ll definitely use them again in the future.

They responded to my request quickly and on time.
