About Jeff James, Locksmith
Jeff James, CRL
(Certified Registered Locksmith)
Jeff and Jamey James have resided in the Lake Cities area since 1985. They have 3 children and 4 grandsons. Jeff is a private pilot and when he is not working you can find him flying his Piper Cub or RC airplanes, touring on his motorcycle or playing the guitar. Jamey works for the local school district and enjoys working in the yard and garden and maintaining their koi pond.
Jeff first became interested in locksmithing in the late 70’s when he went to work for an architectural door hardware company working in the warehouse. He became familiar with all brands of locks, installation, trouble-shooting, learned the art of master-keying and all aspects of commercial door hardware. In the late 80’s he went to work for the Westin Hotel as the hotel locksmith. Again, working at the Westin Hotel gave him greater knowledge of lock installation, repair, rekey, master-keying and key inventory. He advanced his skills by completing the coursework for Advanced Locksmithing with the Foley Belsaw Institute. It was during his employment at the Westin Hotel that he realized that the Lake Cities area needed a reliable locksmith. While still working at the hotel, he and Jamey built the foundation of their locksmith business and in 1994 when the hotel was bought out, Jeff decided it was the opportune time to open their locksmith business. So in January 1995 Lake Cities Locksmith became the hometown locksmith in the Lake Cities area.
