"I stumbled upon Bayarealocks.com after doing some research about "lock bumping". Since we were moving into a new house I wanted to take the necessary precautions on this issue. Dennis went out of his way to provide me with information and was even kind enough to provide a fast appointment to service our locks. He is extremely knowledgeable and provided the service with the highest degree of professionalism. I would recommend his services to anyone. Thanks for everything."

Announcements and Updates
There are several television segments featuring Dennis McEntire of Bay Area Locks. To view any of them, click on this link or on any of the logos above.
With the introduction of Protec 2, Abloy's newest line of security, all of the Abloy products now offer a choice of original Protec or Protec 2. Which one to choose? It's simple -- if you are a new customer be sure to select Protec 2, but if you are an existing customer looking to match up locks with your existing system, then choose Original Protec. The systems are NOT compatible with each other. The primary difference is the key patent (since it's a new product and patent). You can read more on the Bay Area Locks blog located here.
If you are a current Abloy deadbolt customer and would like to upgrade your locks to Protec 2, we have an option for you. The Replacement Abloy Deadbolt Cylinder is an exact factory manufactured cylinder that will replace your existing cylinder and upgrade it to Protec 2.
