Absolute Lock and Key was founded in 2002 by an enterprising Scotsman who, after working
as a locksmith in the San Francisco region for several years, saw a dire need for a truly service-oriented

service secured a reputation for unparalleled customer service as well
as technical expertise in commercial, residential, and automotive locksmith applications.

Before long, however, Jim saw another niche to fill. Motorcyclists and scooterists in Maine, as well as
all over the country, were travelling hundreds of miles and being charged sinful amounts of money to have
their keys duplicated or replaced at a dealership. An avid and long-time enthusiast, Jim decided to reincarnate

Jim is the exception to that old rule of 'If it seems too good to be true, it probably is.'
