What our clients have to say
Karl was so nice and very accommodating. I needed a special key which he didn't have, but he called all other places in the area to try to find it for me. He found a place downtown Chicago and said I could get it there. Not many people now a days will go above and beyond like that!!! He is so nice and very helpful, I strongly recommend Karlock shop in Vernon Hills.
Karl was great -- professional, skillful and efficient. Not only he repaired the lock promptly, he was also very responsive and organized. It was a great experience working with Karl.
Very professional and went out of his way to help us out with a key we've been struggling to duplicate. Plus, he was very fair and honest about pricing. He also has an excellent Covid-protocol to minimize contamination to himself and others, which is surprisingly hard to come by.
Responsive, Knowledgeable and Professional locksmith located in Vernon Hills, IL. The owner, Karl, has very reasonable rates. He came quickly within 20 mins, opened my vehicle and gave me a good guy rate. If you are looking for a licensed, reputable local locksmith (not a dispatch operated from a call center in India) you found the real deal. Highly recommend!!!
Karlock came to my new home to rekey all the locks to one key and was fast, friendly, and an overall great value when I had so many other things to deal with. 2 years later when one of the exterior door handles broke off, I just called him up to arrange a time, picked up a new handle set at Menards, then used his drive up service where he rekeyed the new set to match my current key. Quick and Easy!

I recently changed the batteries in my electronic keypad to my safe. Afterwards, I tried to open the safe and it would not. I contact Karl at Karlock in Vernon Hills, IL. During our call, Karl wanted to run through a few self diagnostics on the safe. Karl was extremely knowledgeable about the type of safe and its unique features. His instructions were easy to follow and he successfully guided me to an unlocked safe. I appreciate Karl's technical assistance in this matter and strongly recommend his services for anyone with a lock problem.
When everything else failed, Karlock saved the day. I needed to have a key made for our car ASAP. . .I tried the dealer; I tried Batteries Plus neither was able to help me. They were out of stock and couldn't guarantee when keys would be available. The whole "chip" shortage story. I tried Karlock and within 24 hours my situation was resolved. Karl, went over the top to help me, communicated with me on status and was the best price around. I highly recommend Karlock to anyone in need of a key, of any fashion, cuz. . .I think he has it all. I am grateful and blessed to have contacted Karlock. I will refer and share my story whenever possible. Thank you, Karl - Cindy
