In stark contrast to the sound of a lock being drilled into a door, staff of local locksmith shop Lockbusters recently took a little time out for some “awww!”, tiny barks, and purring. Owner Jay Sofer and technician Scott Darrow work with drills, tools, security hardware day and night, but on Saturday, January 28, 2012, they cuddled up to some shelter-dwelling furry friends and ensured they have enough to eat.

Known for their flat rate, rock bottom, and completely transparent pricing system – unheard of in this industry – Lockbusters often pays forward the tips earned from happy customers. And with unanimously positive ratings on online review sites Yelp and Angie’s List, satisfied clients abound. Shaking up the field’s reputation for sketchy practices in favor of honesty and integrity, to every request Lockbusters offers reliable, affordable, and downright pleasant service. In October 2011, Mayor Michael Bloomberg and the leadership of Yelp publicly commended the small business on its exponential growth in the city.

The company has donated to multiple other animal shelters as well as charities for children, such as Smile Train; post-disaster hurricane relief efforts; and more. During their most recent donation to Animal Haven in SoHo, the guys unloaded over $300 worth of cat and dog food, litter, and treats into the rescue. Showing very low resistance to the draw of attention-hungry temporary residents of the shelter, they also spent some time on the floor with one big, chill cat and a litter of five tiny mixed-breed puppies.

Scott Darrow, Lockbusters' expert safe technician is a cat enthusiast who wishes he could “find every feline the home they deserve.” The shelter always has eligible meow-makers for those looking to adopt. Founder and owner Jay Sofer is the dog person, and his own best friend, Rocky, is a former shelter dweller.

Lockbusters is an East Village, New York City locksmith company dedicated to professional and reliable locksmithing. Serving neighborhoods in Manhattan, Brooklyn, and Queens, Lockbusters’ service area and service menu are continually expanding. Lockbusters provides sound services at guaranteed lowest and flat rate prices, which are publically displayed on the company’s website, http://www.lockbustersnyc.com.
