A network of over 700 certified locksmithing businesses

This site is administered by the Master Locksmiths Association of Australasia Ltd (MLAA) on behalf of over 700 locksmithing companies in Australia and New Zealand who are Business Members of the MLAA.

This site allows the public to access our network of qualified professional locksmiths, and to find valuable information on how to secure the things that are important to them.

Secure the things you love”

To ensure consumers engage the services of a professional locksmith with the skills required to perform the highest quality of work, all MLAA Master Locksmiths must be fully qualified. In addition, they must also be police-checked, or hold a security licence or registration. This provides consumers with the peace of mind and the confidence that the locksmith has the necessary skills, and can be trusted.

Master Locksmiths are bound by the MLAA’s Code of Ethics, and the Business they work for must be a registered company, licensed (in jurisdictions where licencing is required), and fully insured.

What Services do Master Locksmiths provide?

Master Locksmiths provide a wide range of locksmithing and security services across many sectors. These sectors include:

  • Residential

  • Locked out or lost your keys? Your Master Locksmith can get you in when you are locked out or you have lost your keys. Your Master Locksmith has the skills and the equipment to get you in without damaging the lock or your door. And because they are a Master Locksmith, you can be confident that they are police checked and/or licenced.
  • Just moved house? Your Master Locksmith can change all your locks for you, giving you confidence that no one else has the keys to your property and so protecting your family and possessions. Your Master Locksmith can also change the frequency on your garage remote.
  • Not sure what level of security you need? Your Master Locksmith can review your security and provide you with a range of options. If you already have a good level of security, they will not try and sell you something you do not need.
  • Your Master Locksmith can also cut you a key that works, sell you a lock and install it for you, repair your locks, install a safe, and provide you with a CCTV and alarm system.

Master Locksmiths are up to date with the very latest technology, and they have the specialist tools and equipment required to do what the dealer does. And your Master Locksmith can come to you, anytime day or night. Ever tried getting help from the Dealer when you have lost your keys over a weekend!?
