Z came out and rekeyed a rental property that I manage for some of my clients. He was available quickly showed up promptly is extremely professional and took care of business. He even came back out at no additional charge to give me an extra key and button up one additional door for me. Highly suggest him to anybody looking for a locksmith! I'll be sharing his name and number with all of my home buyers! More...

This is the first time I've used a locksmith. I had to fix the driver side key cylinder that was damaged by someone who attempted to use a screw driver to break into the vehicle. I was told by the dealership to purchase all three key cylinders (driver side door, engine, and glove box), to include installation cost. This would've cost a fortune. I even went to a junkyard to search for the part, hoping to get a deal. I actually found what I was looking for, but they could only install the replacement and it would result it having 2 separate keys, which my wife wasn't too excited about. I called Z, and he is truly a miracle worker. He offered to re-key the driver side key cylinder to match the existing one!!! What a blessing!!! I met with Z and his tech, Shy, who was able to make the repair in less than 15 minutes. Super thankful for finding Z Locksmith, and would HIGHLY suggest them for your service needs. More...

Z was quick to respond and very helpful.  He was able to address the issue right away when other locksmiths who had been out previously were not.  His rates were fair and he was easy to work with. More...

I was having issues getting the lock I installed to catch properly. I was also trying to get the lock working before my lunch break was over. Zohar responded quickly and kept me informed of his arrival time via text. He showed up and fixed the issue, even explaining it to me so I could benefit from his knowledge (without paying a locksmith) in the future. Zohar was very professional and personable and his rates are reasonable. I would recommend him to anyone in need of a locksmith. More...

My son lost my key to the car and I went down the yelp list of pricing for different places to have to find a decent key replacement...I was quoted 120.00 from one place and 175.00 for another....I take the. 120.00 and they come out, the total quickly reached almost 300. I called the first place on my list abd he told me there were no extra charges just 175.00 out the door. At this point the other guys wabt to bargain and I say no....he gets upset and I tell him to leave. He says "I drove 25 minutes for you." I said, You came out scamming, leave." He did and then Z LOCKSMITH, showed up. Wonderful service, very helpful, and most of all honest. It's never easy to have to pay for a lost key but if you have to at least have someone who is respectful and honest. More...

My honda civic's old key is about to break down into pieces. I have texted z San Diego Locksmith and got the appointment, pricing details in the text message. It is not expensive compared to the dealer pricing. Initially the key he made didn't work, but some how he talked to those cars in Japanese and made it work. He is very professional and experienced. I am writing this review 3 months after using the keys he made for my car. If you need a duplicate key for your car. This is the place to got. More...

Z locksmith is the best!! I called them as soon as they opened, bright and early on a Monday morning and they took great care of me! Constant communication until my car key was remade and back in my hands. Super kind and understanding when I was stressed out. If you need help from a locksmith, Z will take great care of you!!

Z Lock was awesome! We gave them a call and they were out within a hour. The quote was a bit higher than what we expected - there were some issues with our locks - but it was still a great deal!

Israel is fantastic. My boyfriend locked himself out of the house and I was already halfway to work for a meeting. I called Z Locksmith because they had great reviews, and my call was answered right away and he said he could be there in 30 minutes. He was on time, worked quickly and the price was very fair. This saved us as we both had places to be and could not be late. Thank you, Israel and Z Locksmith for great response and quality work. More...

There I was having good time fishing at my favorite lake and I get a call from my tenant saying that the front door lock was broken.  This is obviously not something that I can ignore, so that just about ruined my trip.  Zohar however made the day as easy as possible.  Great humor too.  Got it done same day no hassle!

These guys are great! Fast, prices inline or cheaper than other's offering the same service, super friendly, great communication and on time! Used Z to replace a lost key on a 1997 Ford F-150. The gentleman came out as scheduled, calling to confirm and telling me when he was on his way, and was just a really nice guy. Made me an extra key at no charge! How can you beat that kind of service? *Please be careful when calling for locksmith's off of Craigslist etc. Many times these are simply answering services that distribute your job to whomever is next on their list* No bueno! Thanks Z San Diego Locksmith for the fantastic five star service! More...

Hot surfer Russian dude serves u. Fast service. Works from his Nissan morano with his cute pup. His sidekick is adorable and worth the wait while he's getting your keys out of your car when u locked yourself out. Then afterwards we chatted while taking his dog for a walk. U get a free date after asking this guy to rescue your keys. Real hot superhero blond Russian dude. Only downfall is that he's married. More...

I called Z because of their excellent ratings. Zohar was very responsive, gave me an estimate of cost, and came within the time frame we agreed on. He listened to what I thought I needed, offered good suggestions (for less rather than more work), and did the work quickly and very effectively. I had no hesitation asking him to come a second time, and once again found him responsive. He is a very thoughtful problem-solver and very deft with his tools. Thank you, Zohar! More...

A very nice young Isreali-born locksmith, who subcontracts with Z SD Locksmith, established that the malfunctioning door lock just needed an extra twist and a little tightening to regain its funtion-not a new lock. What is impressive is that this young man unhesitatingly diagnosed this simple fix and did not take advantage of my ignorance. He also attested to the quality of his company, Z SD Locksmith. Although I have never had to call a locksmith before, he is on speed dial! More...

I had lost the keys to my car and had nothing to duplicate as a reference. Called Z Locksmith and got a quick and fair price quote. Zohar showed up at the appointed time, knew exactly what to do, and created a new key for my car all within the hour. Super friendly, was a pleasure talking to him during the job.Honest, professional, down to earth, and overall excellent service - highly recommended! More...

Excellent service! Had emergency situation where code lock jammed and couldn't lock/unlock the door and didn't have actual key; was about to hand property to tenants. Called these guys and was told they will be at the property within one hr and he did. Arrived as promised, matched the key, made second copy of it and all was done in one hr. Couldn't be more happy. Will definitely use them again if I have to! Highly recommended More...

Awesome! Met up with Z just three hours ago to get a duplicate of a key that numerous places could not copy. I tried calling other competitors I found on YELP, all I would get is a voicemail. (True) I needed the key ASAP due to my circumstances and he came through. Great service, end product was what I needed, great communication/ follow up, and fast. In the UTC area? This is it. It was for me. More...

This company is excellent. He came to my home and recommended the best way to accomplish what we needed. He is so nice and honest. He could have recommended several things that cost so much more but did not. I am very pleased and would definitely recommend them. More...

This is the most reliable locksmith in town, hands down! Zohar (also known as Z) showed up on a very short notice and helped us. Do not look for anyone else, Z is your guy! More...

All these excellent yelp reviews are well deserved. I needed a locksmith urgently yesterday (Sunday). I thought that if I found someone who would come out early on a Sunday morning, the cost would be crazy. Zohar answered the phone immediately, he was at my house within 30 minutes, he fixed the lock quickly and the cost was very reasonable. He was so good, that I asked him to come back today to take care of a few other doors I needed some work on. Highly recommend. More...

Highly recommend Z Locksmith.  He was able to come SAME day to replace all the locks in a new home we had just moved into.  It was a straightforward, hassle free experience, for a fair price.  He was nice, honest, and worked quickly.  WeI felt very comfortable with him.  He also had a nice sense of humor too (he helped us solve a silly mailbox key problem that was really just our own stupidity :P).  Would hire him again for any locksmith needs!

Zohar is one of the kindest people I've met in a long time. I wish there were more people like him in the world, we'd all be better off if there were. He was kind, honest, professional and quick. My family were locked out of our house, my son was sick and needed his medicine. Zohar was there within 20 minutes and had us in our home in no time. He is a hero, and I highly recommend his service. Read the other 5 star reviews, he is worth every penny! More...

First off great guy! Secondly, honest guy tell you as it is. I'm from out of town and lost my fob. Damn sucks....He was the cheapest guy in town. Easily by 100 bucks.He was here just as appointed. I'm glad we met. Don't look anywhere else! This is your guy. More...

I lost my keys to my storage unit and needed to get in there quickly.  I called at 8am, and he was there within 2 hours.  Very responsive, friendly, and professional.  I needed a bolt cut (which he didn't charge me for), a lock picked, both locks changed, and 2 new keys.  I was a little worried about the cost, and he could tell so he ended up giving me $25 off.  Would definitely use him again (but hopefully I won't have to!) More...

10 February 2017

Zohar was a great help. He really has your best interest in mind. I had a special lock that could not be picked and he truly tried everything he could to keep my cost down.  When Zohar determined the only way to get in was to drill the lock, which would be costly,  he offered to come in through a window. ( on the second floor). Only problem was I had no ladder to get up there. Zohar went out of his way to lowes the purchase a ladder to come into through the second story. This man treated me as though I was his friend making sure he could help in the best, most cost effective way. It was an unfortunate circumstance but I am glad to have someone who did all he could for me. Thank you Zohar! More...

Zohar is the best!  Went above and beyond more times than I can count.  He was honest,  thrifty with my money,  and available. I sometimes wasn't the best customer,  but he was always the best locksmith.  My business now has a working front door (without having to pay for a whole new door) and plenty of keys for my employees.  Couldn't recommend him higher! Thank you! More...

Here's my story: I'm getting ready for a ride to Vegas for MLK weekend. I put my suitcase in my trunk and shut it. I go back to my apartment to grab a blanket I needed to bring and I reach into my bag to grab my keys but... IT'S NOT THERE. After pacing around my parking lot and building, I realized I probably locked my keys inside my trunk. -facepalm- Right before the trip where I'm supposed to drive all my girlfriends too. I look on Yelp and call Z Locksmith just by pure coincidence and I'm so glad I did. Very professional every step of the way, he came in about 10-15 minutes and opened my trunk in like 5-10. The whole process was so fast! He's very courteous and a good conversationist while working on your car too. Usually, this service costs $95, just so ya know. Moral of story: It super sucks to get locked out of your car. Luckily, there's Z San Diego Locksmith to open your trunk for you. Thank you so much! You saved my girls and me's trip to Vegas. :) More...

I'd recommend Zohar and his services to anyone.  We had an incident where a car key was stolen, so we needed to get new keys made and ensure that the thief couldn't take our car with the old key.  Zohar is very professional and reliable, and he was able to help us very quickly (on a holiday, no less).  Very fair price from an honest guy.  You never plan on needing a locksmith, but I'm very glad I know Z in case anything else comes up in the future.  Thanks!

Zohar was the best.  He showed up quickly and entertained me with his funny and kind personality.  I had bought a good lock but then didn't put the key on my key ring for my new place!!!  He explained why it was a good lock, how he was going to approach the job and what my options were.  He got me into my place and then was kind enough to put my new deadbolt on, made sure I had my keys on my key ring and recycled my old locks for me.  He's a winner, winner chicken dinner!!!!  Made a blech situation a fun experience?! !!!

Z is amazing. At first, he gave us a clear instruction and charge through the phone call. Then, he arrived on time. Finally, he got our dead locked door opened fast and without damage anything. We highly recommend he to you if you happened lock your self out. More...

I called four locksmiths one night, needing a key made for a mazda that night.  Three of them did not answer and I left messages.  Z Locksmith answered the phone.  Two of the three called me back. One never did.  One of the two said they couldn't do it until tomorrow even though they offered 24/7 service.  The second one that returned my request was more expensive than Z Locksmith.Z Locksmith picked me up from my house and took me to the car to save my wife a trip then made a new key and an extra in about 25 min.

Locked out of myself due to a naughty son. Found Z on Yelp and he came quickly. Our lock was stubborn but he persevered and finally got us in. The only complaint we have is that our door jamb is messed up, even though Z's father tried his best to patch it. If you are locked out, I would highly recommend Z's services. More...

This guy is fantastic, big guy amazing eyes! If you're looking for surfer locksmith, look no further! But no really this guy is the bomb. He told me he would get here in 10 minutes and he got here in 5. He knows what he's doing and knows when to direct if he need help. For the money you pay, you're basically saving travel time and money on uber if u have a spare key at home. If you don't believe in god, believe in him, he will work miracles for you. Please for the love of god give him a call if you're ever in need of help (I locked myself out of my car). More...

OKAY SO LET ME TELL YOU A STORY ABOUT THE ABSOLUTE AMAZING HUMAN BEING THAT IS ZLOCKSMITH. Okay so in a series of unfortunate events, I was left with no key and locked out of my apartment with no way to get a key for two days AND I was supposed to move out in the morning. Nightmare. So it's about one thirty in the morning and I call another locksmith and they tell me they can't get anyone out to me until 8:30am, but I'm tired and I wanna sleep so I call ZLocksmith next and he comes 25 minutes later prepared with a toolbox and everything. I lead him up to the room and he explains to me that my lock is actually a complicated one and he completely explained to me all the steps he would need to take and the average cost of something like this and the possibility of my lock actually breaking completely in trying to get into my apartment so I knew what I was agreeing to. At this point in time I get a call from the first locksmith saying he's here (after being told they wouldn't come) and so I told him lol no go away. He starts yelling at me over the phone, and then I get a call from the company they work for and that guy yelled at me too, and it's 2am and I start crying because I'm tired and all I want is my bed and this guy is an asshole. ZLocksmith was there basically telling me to calm down, being soooo nice and understanding and trying to get me to stop crying, and helping me deal with the asshat on the phone. I finally get that guy off my case, and ZLocksmith got me into my apartment without damaging the lock. He wrote me the bill and before he accepted my card he asked me to promise that the bill would not put me out (because I'm still in tears at this point and yes it was a bit expensive but I knew what I was getting into, he really had to work to get that door unlocked and at 2am). He was the kindest individual with the biggest heart and he worked quickly and he let me know exactly what he was doing and what the average cost was so I had no surprises. He also texted me this afternoon to make sure I was ok, so if you hire him you get both a great and efficient locksmith but also a great individual. More...

Went to unlock the front door to my business and the handle came off in my hand.  Called Z Locksmith and he was here in 20 minutes.  It is an expensive lock but Zohar went above and beyond to get the part to repair it so I wouldn't have to spend a fortune replacing it.  Very friendly, excellent communication and amazing service!

He explained the whole process of what he had to do and gave me an itemized receipt explaining what he was charging for...I know nothing about this sort of thing! I would definitely call him again if we need his services and we would highly recommend Z Locksmith to our friends, family and local businesses! More...

I want personally thank Zohar for his one of a kind customer service!! I got locked out of my car and I was stuck in downtown. Gave him a call through Yelp and he gave me a great price and was there so quick!! He unlocked my car and even gave me tips how not to do the same mistake!

Wes H.

28 March 2016

Great service. Very friendly and reasonable. They were here within the hour and had a new key made in 20 min. I would highly recommend but suggest clarifying on what key you are expecting. I paid $200 (includes service fee for driving out) for a new key with a chip but it doesn't have the lock/unlock buttons on the key. Other companies quoted $115 for a standard key without the automatic key entry buttons and $185 for the key with lock/unlock buttons. Highly satisfied with customer service but was expecting a different key. More...

I contacted Z Locksmith through HomeAdvisors.com at 7:00 a.m this morning. Zohar responded immediately and politely gave me an estimate over the phone. His estimate for re-keying the doors in my home was the most competitive of the two I received, so I called him back to arrange for service. He was prompt, friendly, courteous and professional. I was very pleased with his service and will definitely call him again when I have a need. More...

Just finished having my mailbox lock fixed by Zohar, and I'm very happy that I can close my mailbox securely now! I found him on yelp and decided to call because he had such great reviews. The phone conversation was very pleasant, and he didn't even mind when I asked if I could call him back after checking another locksmith for a quote. I called him back because between the two locksmiths, I just had a better vibe over the phone with him. He gave me a time estimate as to when he could be at my place and was even kind enough to say he would call 20 minutes before arriving so that I could still go run some quick errands nearby. When he arrived, he was very pleasant and professional, and was done with the job in less than 30 minutes. Excellent customer service, great work, and very nice guy...thank you! More...

Zohar was fast and efficient. I used his service after reading his profile on Yelp. With 5 stars and 80 reviews,  I figured I couldn't go wrong with this guy. And I was right. I used his service to re-key a lock and he finished within 15 minutes. More...

Wow! We were locked out of our home at 11:30p on a Sunday, and they were at our house in a matter of 20 minutes. We had a problematic lock, and after 30 minutes, he finally got the most impossible lock opened. The door broke a little bit, and he returned the next day to repair the door. Fantastic service and nicest guy! I so appreciate the positive attitude and over the top customer service!Thank you!!! More...

Made a appointment very last minute and Z came on time and went above and beyond..I never knew changing my locks would be such a great experience. I have dogs that bark up a storm and he even took the time to make sure they didn't get out! Z was amazing and if I could give 10 STARS I would! More...

Called Z Locksmith because my roommate was moving out today. Their website advertised more towards the consumer instead of businesses which I liked. I didn't need a fancy security system with a lock, and I'm not a business. All I needed was my lock changed out because of my roommate moving out and that's it.Prices were fair and I booked an appointment the same day. I liked the communication back and forth, and appreciated that he let me know he was running date due to the weather.The lock he looked at was an anti-tamper proof lock which was 20 dollars more, but gave me a discount which was awesome.Entire process took 15 minutes, in and out, and he takes credit.

After a long day at work I get home only to find that my apartment keys wouldn't open my front door. I googled everything to try to open it myself, but it just wouldn't budge an inch. After about an hour of google searches and fruitless attempts to push it open, I finally broke down and called a few lock smiths for pricing. Zohab was a little farther away than a few other lock smiths I called, but he gave me the best price. He showed up in about 20 minutes (again I was a bit of a drive for the guy), and popped my door open in less than five minutes. He also showed me what was wrong with the door (the latch broke), which I thought was helpful. Would definitely use his services again. He was friendly and worked quickly. He even brought his little dog Milky. Cheers mate. More...

Zohar was a lifesaver today!  I was calling around trying to find a locksmith to make two copies of keys that Home Depot could not make.  I first called La Jolla Village Locksmiths and they were rude and unhelpful.  Luckily I called Z locksmith next and he knew exactly what I needed and arrived in 5 minutes!  Amazing! He was very resourceful and made the copies in 10 minutes.  He was very nice, efficient, and provided great service.  Thank you, I would definitely call him again in the future! More...

I called Z and left a voicemail and within 2 minutes he called back and said he could be at my place in 15 minutes! He was able to efficiently get into my house with no damage at all for a reasonable price. Very friendly family owned service that I will recommend. More...

Moved to a new place, locked myself out. Called multiple places (hour and a half wait, booked, rude) then called Z. He was speedy, honest, pleasant, affordable and enjoyable to work with. Highly recommend this company and love supporting local family business! Thanks Z!! More...

The townhouse my roommates and I live in had a problem with our lock. None of our keys would work. We called him and he came by in a timely manner! We made an appointment at 4 PM and he wasn't late and got to work quickly. He replaced our lock for $180 which to me was a little pricey. But It was a house call so I understood. He was able to get everything fixed within an hour. However in about 2 days the lock broke again. He immediately came by the next day to fix it. It has been 2 weeks now and everything is still good. He gave us a 12 month warranty so everything should be okay! More...

I accidentally locked myself out late at night, and Zohar was able to get to my place in 15-20 minutes. He was very friendly and successfully got me back into my apartment in about 10 minutes. The total came to $95. The service call fee was $15, the actually unlocking procedure Itself was $75, and the credit card fee was another $5. Thanks Zohar! More...

I contacted Z Locksmith originally for a broken sliding glass door lock at a rental condo we have. He had to communicate with me as well as the tenants to arrange for the repair and regarding what he was doing to fix the problem. Long story short there was an issue and I was pretty frustrated/upset. I wrote a bad review, and planned to just write off the business. Zohar, the owner/locksmith, contacted me via email and phone to apologize and offered to make things right. I was out of town and really busy when he reached out, but he was persistent and professional in continuing to follow up with me and ultimately offered to do whatever it took to make things right, thanking me for my feedback. The sincerity and customer service more than makes up for the miscommunication/mishap I had the first time, and I've scheduled him to change some locks and add a lock at our house. A locksmith is easy to find. Zohar is one who actually cares about doing right by his customers and goes out of his way to do so, which is rare. More...

Zohar was great!  We both have jobs that make us work late, and Zohar was able to not only accommodate our late schedule, he was also extremely friendly and lively for 8 in the evening.  After a long day of work, I was glad to have somebody who does a professional job while not being weary from his own long day.  He quickly got our home keyed and also gave us some useful information about the locks we had and the advantages to keeping the ones already there.  I had initially asked for a brand new lock and knob (which would have been more expensive than getting the current lock rekeyed), but Z said it wasn't necessary and saved me a ton of money in the process.  I'm know he could have made more money off me (and I would have totally paid; I did ask for it) but he didn't take advantage of me, and instead told me to keep my perfectly good lock.  It is that kind of professionalism that I really admire and I know I will be referring him to anybody who needs a master locksmith.

Great service, very reasonable prices.  Needed to rekey 3 locks, when he found that one of the locks is not possible to rekey -  replaced it with a new and better one for the same price of rekeying. Will work together in the future.

The lock was getting harder and harder to open, so I knew it had to be something inside the lock.  When it just became too big a pain in the butt, I did the responsible thing and called the locksmith.  He assured me it was a good call and the entire lock may not need to be replaced.  When he arrived he assessed the situation, it was only the cylinder that needed to be replaced.  My only regret was waiting so long to have such a simple procedure.

If you call Z  locksmith you won't need to call anyone else! I called on a holiday at 2:30pm within 5 minutes Zohar was at my house re-keying the front door lock! He is extremely knowledgeable and friendly. He took the time to explain to me the differences in lock options and never pushed a more expensive option on me. He also took the time to be sure that all the other locks including the garage and backdoor were properly secured! I highly recommend his service and his prices are the best I've found. More...

Even though there was no way to pick our lock the guy that came was really helpful. He went out of his way to drill and open the lock to get us in. He was super professional. He got there within 20- 30 mins, but that was okay. He had the door open in another 30, because it was different than most locks and ridiculously hard to pick. He tried to charge us as little as possible and we really appreciated that. Overall the service was great and if we get locked out again, we would totally call Z locksmiths. More...

Honestly? Yeah, this is as good as it gets. He answered the phone, came on time, we discussed options and pro/con of different ways to get the job done, and then he set to work. He's good at explaining different cost/benefit issues, and gives honest assessments of  why you need something, or don't need something. Doesn't try to up sell, either. Great work, and an honest guy - if I have any more lock or security issues, I'm calling him again. Pleasure dealing with you, Z! More...

I recently moved into a new home and had 6 different keys, I called several companies and went with Z Locksmith because they took the time to educate me on my options. They scheduled my appointment for the next morning and rekeyed all me locks to one key. Excellent service highly recommended and they gained another customer. More...

Awesome service! I had to make a copy of my key and unfortunately he wasn't able to, but that didn't stop him from helping my roommate and I! He offered his help in trying to make a copy for us and if it didn't work, he wouldn't charge us. Definitely gained a customer today! More...

Quick and reasonably priced. I called on a Sunday morning and they arrived within half an hour and re-keyed my lock in maybe less than 10 minutes. The guy was professional, straightforward, and made me laugh out loud at the end with a very on-point comment about my lock situation. He also told me about alternative stronger locks I could purchase. (i stuck with the standard) This is the first place I'll call for any key situation from now on. Thanks, Z Locksmith! More...

Both keys worked great and we didn't even need to leave the garage to do it. They also gave us a great price. I would reccomend Z locksmiths if you need any type of key replacement for your car!!
