Who We Are
Inspired by his father’s long career as a locksmith, Lockbusters founder Jay Sofer has been opening doors in New York for longer than many of his clients have called the city home. Locks are his craft, but his true calling is building great relationships with his clients — providing both exemplary service and peace of mind. With hundreds of positive testimonials, it’s clear that Jay’s clients love him as much as he loves them.

It might seem obvious, but Lockbusters is built on a simple premise: never take advantage of clients in a desperate situation. Many locksmiths won’t give you a quote until they arrive, and then charge ridiculous prices to people who can’t afford to shop around for a more reasonable option. When you call Lockbusters, Jay will quote you a fair price on the spot and that’s exactly what you’ll pay — no last minute, unexpected charges to worry about.
Jay isn’t just concerned with making sure his clients feel safe and secure in their homes. An avid philanthropist with a soft spot for man’s best friend, Jay donates a large portion of his tips to animal rescue shelters around the city. Lockbusters has even developed a special partnership with Sugar Mutts, a wonderful non-profit located in Brooklyn that offers canine foster care, adoption, and daycare services. When you hire Lockbusters, you’re not just protecting your home — you’re also helping countless NYC pets find a home of their own.
What We Do
As an NYC native, Jay knows that properly protecting your home is just a part of city living. That’s why he’s happy to help you secure your home with state-of-the-art locks, safes, surveillance systems — you name it, he’ll help you install it! Because of his long-standing relationship with lock manufacturers in the Tri-State area, he can guarantee you the most reasonably priced products on the market.
Of course, we’ve all experienced the classic laundry day lockout, and Jay recognizes the need for expedient service when you’re in a bind. Whether you’re locked out of your home, your office, or your vehicle, Lockbusters provides 24-hour expert assistance. Depending on the urgency of your situation, feel free to text, call, or email — Jay won’t judge you for leaving your keys on the kitchen counter!
