History

Carl and Denise Feinberg have been providing professional security service for more than 45 years. They are the owners of Carl's Locksmith Service, formerly at 444 Second St., now at their new location, 1173 Bedford St.

The change was a very positive one for both the business and the community. The new location is bigger and better. The added space allowed Carl to add to his already extensive displays of safes and security hardware.

Almost every type of key imaginable graces the walls, including skeleton keys of long ago. The store can also furnish customers with regular, restricted, and high security keys that many manufacturers are now using, including domestic and foreign autos. Some of the newer types of keys now have small computer pellets built into them for much higher degrees of security.

The Feinbergs' customers can be looking for new keys or locks for their homes, or some special types of locking devices for unusual applications.

Other services include lock and safe openings and repairs, installing deadbolts, panic hardware, door closers, hinges, access control systems from push-button to card and electronic, and custom designed master key systems. A large selection of safes is also on display in their store.

Carl also specializes in safe deposit box work such as opening and repairing, and provides services for most of the area banks and credit unions to help them maintain their equipment.

Carl Feinberg started locksmithing as a hobby back in 1970. Within a year the hobby grew into a full-time career. He operated as a full-time mobile service until 1983, when he expanded to a full-service shop as well as his mobile service.

Denise Feinberg came on board in 1983 as an inside service technician to help Carl with the growing business. Her interest in the locksmith trade grew and she has played an important role in Carl's Locksmith Service ever since. Carl and Denise keep up with their education in the locksmith industry to stay abreast of the ever-changing security needs of their customers. Annually, they attend classes offered by the Associated Locksmiths of America, The Massachusetts Locksmith Association and Safe and Vault Technicians Association.

Carl Feinberg is recognized by ALOA as being a certified master locksmith, having completing more than 40 exams. Denise Feinberg has recently passed her last exam and is now recognized by ALOA as one of only 13 women certified master locksmoths in the United States and the only woman CML in the New England area.

As always, the staff at Carl's is looking forward to serving the community's security needs. They hope to see many familiar faces as well as new ones at their new location.
