David Mearns, Bonnybridge said on 16/02/2020:
What a relief to find a ‘proper’ locksmith! Too often they have minimal training and experience. Jamie was able to fix a four-year-old problem caused by the inadequate knowledge of others. When you are looking for a locksmith go to a professional like Jamie.
LH, Grangemouth said on 23/01/2020:
Jamie has dug me out a hole on several occasions with his locksmith skills. Jamie is very skilled at what he does and has that wide-ranging knowledge that only experience can bring. Jamie’s communication skills are first class and he always answers his phone or gets back to you. He is very honest with his assessment of your problem and would never rip you off. Jamie is also a really nice bloke and very easy to deal with.
E Campbell, Polmont said on 24/11/2019:
Luckily I had Jamie’s number to hand, as he had done work for me previously, because I was faced with a front door that would not lock. It was mid-afternoon and he was already snowed under. He did promise he would get there so I could secure the house that night. He kept in touch to assure me he would be coming and although it was late in the evening, he kept his word. Quickly and efficiently the door was repaired. Thank you.
Sandra Burnett, Falkirk said on 12/09/2019:
Once again had to contact Jamie to repair a broken front door handle. He was able to fix it without any problem and left without leaving his bill. That is the measure of this lovely person. He is not in it for the money and he is always polite and professional. Will do my best to make sure he is paid!
Jill, Falkirk said on 11/09/2019:
Jamie responded very quickly to my request to look at a broken door lock, knew exactly what the problem was and fixed it within the hour. I was very satisfied with the work done and would certainly use him again if the need arises. Thank you.
Martin McMonagle, Stenhousemuir said on 20/06/2019:
I called Jamie because our front door would not lock. He arrived within half hour as he said he would. Fixed a very complex locking system. A fiddly job on an old door to save us the expense of a full new door. His price was also very fair. I would use Jamie again and I would certainly recommend him based on this experience. Thanks again Jamie.
Craig, Stirling said on 19/06/2019:
This is the second time I have used the services for AL Security. Once again the efficiency and value of service cannot be faulted. Jamie explained fully what was to the best course of action to take and explained fully why he changed from his original plan to fit the lock he did. He also charged us less than the quote due to the change in lock. We’d have been none the wiser, so honesty is another quality. Would thoroughly recommend AL Security to anyone.
Ian Marshall, Grangemouth said on 20/03/2019:
Outstanding service. I called Jamie at 1135 about a problem with my door handle. He told me he could be there in about an hour. I was amazed that he could attend so quickly, so I was a little disappointed when after an hour I had heard nothing but then I received a call telling me he had been held up and would be there at 2pm. I was pleased he had phoned back. He arrived on time and after looking at my door he told me he would have to source handles due to its age. He told me that he would call me back the following day. You can imagine my surprise when he called again at 5pm to say he would come around to my house to fit the handles that night. Ii cannot thank Jamie enough and will definitely recommend him to friends and family.
Ruth Gardner, Airth said on 21/01/2019:
Called today and got a really quick response. Jamie gave me great advice which we will follow. If needed will definitely call him back. Can’t recommend enough. First class service.
LH Grangemouth, said on 26/10/2018:
Had a problem when a main front door which would not lock early in the morning. Contacted Jamie who attended immediately and quickly diagnosed the problem. He then fitted a completely new lock from the stock he carries with him and thoroughly explained the problem to me and gave me advice on maintenance. Prompt, efficient and professional service at a very reasonable cost. I highly recommend Jamie.
Karen, Bo’ness said on 19/10/2018:
Great service today from Jamie at AL Security. I called this morning as was unable to lock our door. Jamie offered me a time slot and arrived promptly. Diagnosed the fault and quickly fixed it. I would have no hesitation in recommending this company and would definitely use them again.

Spoke to Jamie yesterday about fitting a new lock to my sisters new flat. He arranged to meet me today to fit the lock today, A quick and easy transaction. Have used him before and will use again.
B Wilkinson, Cumbernauld said on 01/08/2018:
A.L. Security saved the day for us when our front door lock seized up yet again and wouldn’t open. Jamie turned up when arranged and replaced the lock in no time. A friendly guy who knows his stuff, we will use him again if needed and can recommend A.L. Security to everyone.
Lynn Hunter, Grangemouth said on 06/07/2018:
Jamie turned up spot on time at one of my tenancies to check the multi locks on back & front doors. Tenant had reported them slack and was having difficulty locking them from outside. Jamie chatted pleasantly as he worked and had both tightened up and aligned in no time. I’ve used Jamie’s locksmith services before and I wouldn’t go anywhere else. As well as being good at his profession, he also seems very competitively priced.
LH, Grangemouth said on 18/06/2018:
I contacted Jamie at 0700 hours regarding a property that was lying insecure due to a faulty door lock. Jamie arrived promptly and quickly identified and sorted my problem. Jamie thoroughly explained the problem to me and gave me expert advice on how to avoid the same problem arising in the future. Top service from a top professional and his pricing was very fair and reasonable.
Margaret Keye, Tillicoultry said on 18/06/2018:
I have used Jamie on two occasions since finding his number on Trustys. Jamie is very upfront and honest and repaired my door lock when I was convinced I was going to have to pay for a part. I am absolutely thrilled with Jamie and would recommend him to anyone.
June, Redding said on 14/05/2018:
Jamie came to give a free estimate for my mum’s new property and even gave her a lift home. He returned and gave an excellent service (fitted new keys to conservatory, front door and adjusted other door locks). I was intending to get extra keys cut but was really pleased to find we got 5 keys. Would definitely recommend.
Mo Duncan, Grangemouth said on 13/04/2018:
Called Jamie out to look at a problem with one of our doors, he knew right away what the problem was and gave us two options on how to fix. New part was ordered and fitted within days. Jamie is a lovely guy and I would highly recommend him.
Sandra Burnett, Falkirk said on 12/02/2018:
What a great service Jamie provided to us when he replaced our front door lock. Professional and very personable. It is very obvious that he is one of the good guys who won’t rip you off. Don’t hesitate to use his services.

Replacement of latch in internal door – Jamie was fantastic and got us out of a really sticky spot when the handle on our living room door wouldn’t move the latch and as a result wouldn’t open. Jamie attended the job within an hour of calling and put everything right. We couldn’t be happier with the job he did and would highly recommend him. Great tradesman!

Just had a major problem when I went to leave the house and my key snapped in the lock. Living in a flat and only having one door meant I was locked in!

Thanks Jamie!

After speaking to my insurance company re my front door, they said someone would come out. Turned out to be AL Security.

Chris & Caroline Stewart said on 05/01/2016:
Alba Locks – 30/12/2015 We had a problem with our front door lock the night between and were quite concerned so we had made contact with Jamie from Alba Locks. A really nice guy from the offset, put our minds at rest straight away. He agreed a time the next day which were very surprised at. The time agreed by Jamie the next day he was unable to make but he phoned to apologise and to give us a new time only a couple of hours later than the agreed time. He turned up bang on time, introduced himself and swiftly addressed the problem with the lock on the door, it turned out to be quite a simple fix and he had it resolved it in minutes. When it came to paying him, Jamie refused and said don’t worry about it, I didn’t really do anything. I was so surprised by this, he had came out and fixed our door. A really nice guy and we would not hesitate in calling him again if we had further problems. Would strongly recommend Jamie and Alba Locks.
Val Mears said on 08/12/2015:
Had trouble with the lock on my front door, and got in touch with Jamie Kettyles of Alba Locks, who came out and solved the problem for me, which as it turned out, was not the lock but the door itself which had dropped from its hinges. I found him to be a very friendly, honest and thoroughly decent man, who I would certainly call on again if need be, and who I certainly have recommended to my friends and family. Thank you Jamie.
Laura McCormick said on 23/11/2015:
Thank you for recommending Jamie to us. We had a problem lock which we’d had other locksmiths out to several times. They’d never managed to sort the problem. Jamie removed the lock and showed us the problem. He replaced it and now it’s working perfectly. He was a really nice young man and his price was really good. Completely honest and trustworthy and we’d recommend him to anyone. He’s also just fixed a lock for my mother-in-law and she’s delighted with his work too.
Lesley McGill said on 19/11/2015:
