I called the company and just asked from them to take a look at our security system as one of the doors wasn't unlocking correctly. Was expecting a quote and then I would arrange for an onsite repair. Little did I know that this guy was a master. He had the electronic lock mechanism pulled apart and repaired in a very short time frame. Professional, Experts, and didn't waste time. I would highly recommend

The Flying Locksmiths installed the door locks, panic system, and security system for our HOTWORX studio in a quick and professional manner. After time, when we ran into an issue with our door system, they sent our one of their techs, Ray, to fix the problem. He was clean and courteous even as we had clients coming in and out of the studio! Excellent work Flying Locksmiths!

Sammy J.
We hired The Flying Locksmiths (Detroit North) to install a control access system on our building during the height of COVID. The owner (Mark) personally met with our company to provided details on what options were available so we could make an informed decision. We ended up taking Mark's advice and chose the OpenPath control access system. Mark submitted the order that day and we had Technicians here the following week when parts had arrived. The installation was quick and the Technicians were polite and professional. Mark then provided a comprehensive overview on how to operate the system and navigate the online interface.We have now had the system just under two years and we are beyond satisfied. While OpenPath has an excellent customer service group, we always know we can turn to Mark and his Team. That type of customer service is hard to find these days. Kaltz Excavating Co. Inc. highly recommends The Flying Lock Smiths (Detroit North) for all of your security needs!
Kevin H.

Luke 8.
I have 3 doors keyed the same at my office building and one of them was no longer functioning properly. I was told by others that I'd have to replace all 3 cylinders and get new keys made for everyone. The Flying Locksmith took one look and simply fixed the damaged cylinder in minutes. They saved me hundreds of dollars and the hassle of distributing new keys to all my employees. I was very pleased with their professionalism, price, and responsiveness. I would definitely recommend them!
Steve D.
Manny was an excellent technician. Service was professional and quick. He was very accommodating to the three dogs that were at our door to greet him.
Christopher M.
Everyone at the Flying Locksmith is fantastic! The crew was very professional and they have always responded very quickly to any issues with our controlled access system. I highly recommend this company and wouldn't hesitate to call upon them again for future needs.

The Flying Locksmiths have been a great addition to our vendor list here at Rainbow Child Care Center. They are prompt, courteous, and very competitively priced. They have the ability to provide us with solutions right from their truck, and if the parts aren't available there is no lag in service waiting for the parts. I highly recommend them for anybody that needs service.
