Finding a certified, experienced locksmith is no easy task. Sure, dozens of companies out there will dispatch an indifferent “technician” that offers “quick” solutions when you lose your keys. But when it comes to protecting your home and your business, cheap locks and part-time contractors just won’t cut it. Arrowhead Lock & Safe stands out as the most trusted name in security solutions and products in Georgia in an industry known for poor service and mediocre locksmiths.
Established in 1973, Arrowhead Lock & Safe is a locally owned locksmith and control access firm. Having protected homeowners and business professionals in metro Atlanta for decades, we have built our reputation on exemplary service and the highest quality security products available.

Our goal is to exceed your expectations with every service we offer.
Though home appraisers may disagree, the value of your home isn’t defined by the four walls and roofs that cover a property. The real value of your home lies within those walls where your family eats, sleeps, and plays. When it comes to the safety of your family and the security of your valuables, having quality locks installed on your home is paramount. When your home has lackluster locks and minimal protection, the things that you hold closest to your heart are at risk.
That is why having a dependable residential locksmith in Atlanta is so important – to ensure that your home is protected and that your family is safe from intruders. When you have problems with the locks on your home, you need a solution quickly.

We offer a variety of residential locksmith services to preserve your peace of mind seven days a week, 365 days a year:
Does your home have a complicated lock setup that requires you to use different keys for different doors? Perhaps a former babysitter still has a key to your home. Whatever your reasons, our team of seasoned locksmiths will come to your home, re-key your locks in an efficient manner, and leave you feeling more secure in your house.
Your home is only as safe as the locks that you have on your doors. As your locks age or when you are the victim of a security threat, you may feel that it’s time to install new locks on the doors of your home. This can be long, laborious, and complicated for the average homeowner. For that reason, many clients trust Arrowhead Lock & Safe to handle the hard work for them. When you arrange for new lock installation, one of our experienced residential locksmiths will come to your home and install new locks on your doors. Once we’re done, we’ll make sure your family has enough keys to open your new locks.
If you are a homeowner who has experienced a break-in or want to take additional steps to secure your assets, high-security locks are a great solution. We offer a wide variety of locks from a plethora of major brands. We are fully equipped to meet your needs, whether you’re interested in more traditional lock systems with high key differs or pry resistant lock technology.
If you feel like you need an extra layer security and want to make sure that only certain individuals have access to your home, an access control system is a great solution to your problem. Whether you are interested in electronic or magnetic locks or have been looking to install a password-protected system, our team of experts can help. Contact our office today for a free consultation to learn more about your access control system options in Georgia.
If you are a business owner in Georgia, you have the weighty responsibility of protecting your patrons and securing your businesses’ assets. The most common way for entrepreneurs to keep their business safe is by having a commercial locksmith in Atlanta install quality, reliable locks on every entry point of your storefront. But, unfortunately, many business owners take the least amount of effort necessary when it comes to protecting their business.
Whether you own several franchise locations or have a single storefront, it only takes one break-in to make you realize the importance of installing high-quality locks for your commercial property. Sadly, at that point, it’s too late – your ability to provide for your family and pay your bills has been compromised. For that reason alone, it’s always better to be proactive about your businesses’ security rather than reactive.
At Arrowhead Lock & Safe, our commercial door lock services are designed to ensure that your assets and your customers are protecting 24-hours a day, seven days a week. We will always take the time to walk you through your options, explaining the pros and cons of each security solution so that you can make an informed decision. With a wide range of security offerings and a reliable team of commercial locksmith experts on your side, choosing the right security setup is easy, efficient, and affordable.
Installing high-quality door locks for your business is one of the best ways to protect your assets and your commercial property. At Arrowhead Lock & Safe, we offer many commercial door lock options from the best brands in our industry. From reliable maintenance service on your current Grade 3 locks to new Grade 1 commercial door lock installation, our team of commercial locksmiths is ready to help.
If your businesses’ locks are old and need proper maintenance or corrective repair services, it’s always best to work with a team of experts. From re-keying services to fixing stuck or broken locks, our commercial locksmiths are only a phone call away.
Commercial alarms for businesses are more complex than their residential relatives, and for a good reason. Our cutting-edge alarm systems are great for preventing and interrupting break-ins, notifying the authorities, and act as an important addition to any business that wants enhanced security.
A commercial-grade CCTV system installed by Arrowhead Lock & Safe allows you to monitor all activities that take place under your businesses’ roof. Having security cameras installed around your business gives you added peace of mind and evidence for the police if a break-in occurs. Having visible security cameras can also help deter criminals and prevent suspicious activity from ever taking place. With remote monitoring capability on your smart device, you can check in on your storefront any time of the night or day, from just about any location.
Having the ability to control every one of your businesses’ locks is a proactive, cost-efficient way to protect your customers and your assets. With a commercial-grade control access system from Arrowhead Lock & Safe, business owners can easily restrict certain areas within their store, prevent physical key duplication, record entry history, and even simplify employee turnover.
The American National Standards Institute (ANSI) grading system was developed years ago to standardize a testing procedure to measure the durability and strength of a door lock. This grading system applies to both residential and commercial door locks. Composed of three different grades, the ANSI grading system gives homeowners and business owners a good idea of lock quality and reliability. ANSI examines six different qualities to determine a lock’s grade:
These locks offer the highest level of security and are most often used by institutions like hospitals, schools, and even museums. These locks also have the highest life expectancy, though they can be much more complex and require an expert residential or commercial locksmith in cityname to install. In today’s day and age, many more homeowners are opting for Grade 1 locks (like electronic locks) for the most peace of mind. This classification of lock must hold up against 800,000 cycles, six door strikes and a 360-pound weight test.
These locks are great for residential areas with more foot traffic, like a door that leads to an apartment complex or suite of rooms. These locks can also suffice for small businesses that need a higher level of security than Grade 3 locks. Use these locks when you want to secure access to areas with valuable equipment or sensitive documents. This classification of lock requires 400,000 cycles, four door strikes, and a 250-pound weight test.
This grade of lock is best suited for residential purposes and is considered standard door hardware. This kind of lock is the least expensive and should never be used in a high-traffic area like a lobby or storefront. However, these locks would be suitable for areas without much foot traffic like storage closets or areas without expensive merchandise. Because these locks are easiest to bypass, consider upgrading your Grade 3 locks with anti-bump and anti-pick technology. This classification of lock requires 200,000 lock cycles, two door strikes, and a 150-pound weight test.
A famous animator and movie director once said: “The way to get started is to quit talking and begin doing.” This quote rings especially true when it comes to protecting your home or business with the best security solutions in Georgia.

Home sales continue to be strong in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic with roughly 27% of Americans now living in a community with a homeowners association (HOA) or planned community. According to the Foundation for Community Association Research, the overwhelming majority (89%) of homeowner and condominium association residents rate their overall experience living in a community association as very good (40%), good (30%), or neutral (19%).
"Both homeowners and home buyers appreciate the stability that HOAs provide to their neighborhood of choice," Steve Weibel, CEO of Beacon Management Services, said. "These consumers know that there are reserve funds available for the repair, replacement and enhancement of common property whether that is a swimming pool, elevator, clubhouse or community road or parking lot."
The 2020 Homeowner Satisfaction Survey details the top reasons that community associations continue to grow:
· The value of collective management. HOA boards are comprised of democratically elected homeowners who voluntarily serve their communities. Research shows there are 2.4 million community association board and committee members in the U.S. performing 97.6 million hours of volunteer service annually.
· Privatizing public functions. Local governments often stipulate that the developer or home builder create an association to assume responsibilities that previously belonged to local and state governments. This might include road maintenance, trash removal and stormwater management, just to name a few. According to the report, 75% of new housing for sale is in a community with a homeowners association.
· Expanding affordable housing. There is a consistent effort to increase the percentage of homeowners in the U.S., and since the 1960s, condominiums and townhomes have provided a lower-cost entry to housing. These homes are attractive to first-time homebuyers due to their affordability and the fact they are often located in areas where single-family homes are much more expensive. Condominium communities account for 35–40% of the reported total of community associations.
Beacon Management Services continues to experience the growth of HOAs first hand. To learn more about available services from Beacon Management, visit www.BeaconManagementServices.com.
