About Spencer’s Safe & Lock
Spencer’s Safe & Lock is a professional organization of highly qualified professional locksmiths offering a wide range of commercial and residential locksmith services, including; sales, consulting, installation, and maintenance of locks, keys, safes, panic and security hardware and other related products.
Al Spencer began his apprenticeship as a journeyman locksmith in 1972 earning $1.85 per hour, long before the term “lock technician” became the re-engineered title in the profession. Within a year, he became a store manager for a local safe and lock company. He launched his own business from the basement of his father’s house in 1976. With a van and a bag of tools, Spencer’s Safe & Lock was off and running duplicating keys, installing deadbolts, locks, providing automotive services, installing panic devices and safe opening and repairs. Today, he provides many of the same products and services, including Medeco locks, to the residential and commercial clients of the Washington DC Metropolitan area.
In 1978, Al opened his first storefront in Herndon, Virginia and expanded his coverage beyond Northern Virginia to Maryland and Washington. He added commercial exit devices, lever sets, alarm locks, door bars and safes, as well as residential dead bolts, knob locks, door viewers, keyless entry pads and personal safes to his growing list of products and services.
