Taking care of you and our hometown

With all the choices out there, why should you choose Dominion Lock & Security?

Our customers are our first priority. Good service is just as important now as it was in 1975. Many companies forget where they came from as they grow. Not so with Dominion Lock & Security. We understand that we are here for our customers, and we are proud that we have many of the same customers today who have counted on us for years.

We maintain a wide product offering, many direct from the manufacturers. You’ll find we stock the most commonly needed pieces and products so you don’t have to wait for what you need. When you come to our showroom, you can get keys made, browse our displays of personal safes and gun safes, or design your entire security system.

Simply put, we hire the best people. All of our employees are committed to excellent customer service, and our technicians are insured and bonded. Dominion Lock & Security is registered with the Virginia Department of Criminal Justice Services. Honesty, integrity and valuing our employees like family is why Dominion Lock & Security is successful, and for these reasons we will never use subcontractors.

Our History

In 1975, Johnny Tucker decided to open a local, family-oriented locksmith business in Mechanicsville, Virginia. Under the name Mechanicsville Lock and Key, the business was successful and grew in the local area. Two years later, his son Al joined the business and Dominion Lock & Security expanded to help homeowners, businesses and corporations in the greater Richmond area. Since the seventies, we have gone from providing residential locksmith services to everything from commercial doors and frames, to guns safes and electronic security. We understand that our customers want safety and security from the threat of break-ins and burglaries as well as fire protection, and we’re happy to help. Today, we offer a broad range of products and services with the same commitment to serving the customers that we began with more than 40 years ago.
