Hire a licensed locksmith

In North Carolina, locksmiths have to display a valid locksmith license at all times. To become licensed, locksmiths are fingerprinted and must pass state and federal background checks, as well as a written exam. Every 3 years, licensed locksmiths must submit proof of ongoing education and renew background checks in order to maintain licensure.

With Cape Fear Lock & Key, you can rest assured knowing you’re being taken care of by a skilled, licensed locksmith. Glenn Long is diligent about continuing his locksmith education so he can provide the highest quality services for his customers.

Glenn went ABOVE and BEYOND to help me in my situation! People like this are few and far in between! A good, solid, and professional service! Will not recommend anyone else! 💯 💯 💯

- Molly Levanen

Glenn did his absolute best for me today and I so appreciate it! He took the job when another locksmith couldn’t do it, called me to let me know when he’d be there, and I had lost my fob key and he was able to reprogram a new one for me, on a Sunday. I would recommend him to anyone!

- Kathryn Rice

Highly professional, prompt, and reasonable service. Glenn handled a difficult and stressful lockout situation for me with skill, courtesy, and kindness. Cape Fear Lock and Key is an asset to the community, and highly recommended.

- Judith Madison

Absolutely the BEST. Professional. Excellent quick work. Knowledgeable. Took the time with me to ensure I understood how to program and operate the system locks. Considerate. Took his shoes off and wore a mask properly. Prompt and courteous. Reasonable fee for such exemplary skill and outstanding care.

- Leilamaria Kuri

One of the most honest people I’ve met! I had a broken key fob and only needed a battery. This man could’ve charged me $250 for a whole new key fob, but instead he instructed me on how to get a new battery and fix it long enough for me to get home!!! Even kept in contact to make sure I got the battery and the problem was fixed! Greatly appreciate him and will definitely give him my business again!

- Ami Pickles

I found myself locked out of my house with my two children after losing my key off my key chain. My dogs were inside. This was a Saturday and there was no one answering their phones to include 24 hour places. Cape Fear lock and key literally saved the day. They came as soon as they were contacted and it took them only a few minutes to get us into our home and make duplicate keys. I am so grateful and wouldn’t hesitate to use them again.

- Valerie Myette

Highly respectful. Quickly dropped what he was doing on a Saturday (Holiday Weekend). Came out to my location and quickly made me a key. Everywhere I called wasn’t working til Tuesday. Or they didn’t want to do a Land Rover key. Without questions this guy is very talented. Thank you sir!!
