The Man Behind the Locks

Jay inherited the locksmith gene from his dad and has been opening doors for New Yorkers since he was strong enough to pick up a toolbox. Growing up in New York, Jay saw the warm dialogue and friendships his dad had with his clients, which led them to call him for everything, from a laugh over coffee to emergency lockouts.

Jay knows how important this trust is, that’s why he brings the same personal touch to Lockbusters. He knows the city like the back of his hand, and his top priority is keeping you and your home safe, one locksmith service at a time.

One time, Jay even had to channel his inner-Ralph Macchio (s/o to all the Karate Kid fans out there) when a client’s crazy ex-husband showed up at a client’s apartment. No matter how dicey it can get on the job, you can expect Jay and his team to deliver their locksmith service with a smile and a sense of humor.

“The fact that I can help a small shelter in my small way, it’s just so gratifying. Nothing bad has ever come out of it. Everyone who I’ve told, every client who we’ve interacted with, they all love the idea.”

The Lockbusters team loves animals as much as they love helping people keep their families and homes safe -- founder Jay even donates all of his tips to animal rescue shelters! His senior rescue dog, Little Bear, became the light of his life and inspired all the work Jay does with shelters and animals. Now, two former Bushwick street cats (Xena and Tucker) boss him around at home. So if you call Lockbusters, you’re not just helping yourself – you’re helping out some animals, too.
