BUSINESS FEATURE OF THE WEEK: SURELOCKS

Sure locks

1045 Avenue Road, 416.486.5077, surelocks@bellnet.ca

Sure Locks has been keeping the neighbourhood safe for 30 years, and Edward has been working there for 26 of those years. With a background in finance, Edward left his financial sector job when the economy took a downturn in the late 80s. He became a locksmith under the apprenticeship of Sure Locks’ owner, Dave. In addition to being colleagues, Edward and Dave are also good friends, with photos of them fishing decorating the store.

Despite a wall of possibly of every key imaginable, Sure Locks attributes only about 3 per cent of business to cutting keys. The rest is service-based, including the installation of key systems for residential and commercial customers. 

Sure Locks provides all types of locksmith and security resources and servicing for the neighbourhood, such as computerized master key systems, deadbolts, padlocks, window bars, panic bars, custom address plates, door closers, keyless entry systems, and safes. 

After 26 years in the same location, Edward has gotten to know all of the neighbours. 

“This is a fun job! I get along with everyone. Everything is good.”
