The Flying Locksmiths are a nationwide commercial locksmith company with a local presence in 35 states across the US. Since inception in 1946, the locksmith industry has drastically changed and TFL has been evolving with every advancement in technology. We offer more than just standard locksmith services, putting an emphasis on unparalleled customer service and identifying, vetting, and installing the latest high tech products – TFL has created an unrivaled national service delivery platform for building security systems. In the electronic access control industry we are known as Physical Security Specialists, because while we are extremely competent when it comes to rekeying your locks or installing door hardware, our teams will also implement full card access systems, with security cameras and complete a thorough security assessment of your home or buildings security, by adjusting door closers, exit devices and ensuring handicap operators are in compliance.
Our experience and business education are two of the main components that create the framework of The Flying Locksmiths leadership team. It began with William McMenimon working out of his Jeep with one key machine in 1946. He was training to become a pilot and working as a locksmith, hence the reason for the unusual name. He opened a small key shop in Boston and later moved to the nearby suburbs. When William retired, he passed the business down to his four sons; all of whom have moved on with the exception of Barry L McMenimon, who expanded the company into the highly recognizable business it is today! Barry’s sons, Brett and Barry P – the third generation – have expanded the company by franchising it’s business model and infusing the well-established family business with the convenience of modern technology. The combination of generations has created a blend of old-school ideals and new age tech, resulting in a mix that offers the newest products with a friendly neighborly smile. The mission of the company is simple: provide top of the line security, utilizing all means of communication, while staying true to family values.
