Get Your Keys In Cambridge

Keys Made In CambridgeIf you recently bought a new house or condo chances are you’re going to be getting some new keys made.  It’s always a good idea to change the locks when you buy a house.  You just don’t know who has keys to your new home – many copies may have been passed about over the years.

If you bought your new home in Cambridge or Somerville the place to go is Commonwealth Lock Co. on Mass Ave. in Porter Square, Cambridge.  As a Cambridge real estate agent, I get a *lot* of keys made and can attest to the quality of Commonwealth Lock’s keys. Nothing’s more frustrating than repeated trips to the key counter but Commonwealth almost always gets it right the first time.  These guys are experienced and they are good.

Commonwealth Lock Co., or “CoLoCo”, has been making keys in Porter Square since 1936.  Originally a hardware store, the lock and key operation eventually became a bigger part of the business and has been the sole focus since the 1980s.  The store caters to locksmiths who stream in and out of the store all day.

In addition to making plenty of keys at a constantly busy counter, Commonwealth Lock sells all sorts of locks, keys, and related merchandise including:

  • Bike locks
  • Window locks
  • Lockboxes – great for storing a spare set of house keys
  • Padlocks
  • Safes
  • House numbers
  • Key rings
  • Dog and cat tags
  • and assorted nifty plastic doohickies to add to your keys to make your house key stand out in the bunch

Commonwealth Lock Company is located at 1853 Massachusetts Avenue in Cambridge, Massachusettts and is open Monday through Friday from 8:30 am to 5:30 pm.
