About Timchak Safe & Lock

About the Owner, Gary Timchak

I started my locksmithing career in 1997 in North Pole, Alaska. In 1999, I moved back to Pittsburgh, PA, and worked for Safemasters as their lead safe and vault technician until 2003. Shortly after leaving Safemasters in 2003, I joined the team at Robert Morris University as their lead locksmith and stayed there until 2021.

While I enjoyed working for other companies, I always wanted to have my own business, so I established Timchak Safe & Lock, LLC in 2003. It wasn’t my full-time focus until May 2021, but becoming my own boss was the right choice, and I’m very proud that the people of Pittsburgh, PA, and the surrounding metro region can count on us to provide them with a wide range of locksmith services.

Timchak Safe & Lock is a veteran-owned and family-operated business offering safe, automotive, residential, commercial, and commercial/industrial locksmith services. We specialize in safe and vault openings, as well as safe sales, repairs, and moving/relocation. Automotive and motorcycle customers can count on us to cut/duplicate and program high-security keys, fobs, remotes, and other chipped keys. We also provide a range of access control and security services for residential and commercial clients.

Gary Timchak replaced our front door lock set, as well as other locks. While attempting to set up appointments, he answered & returned phone calls in a timely manner ( which is extremely unusual these days). He arrived on time. Did an extremely thorough job. Was kind, courteous, & professional. I would award his company 5 stars & not hesitate to recommend him to anyone. Very satisfied.

The lock on my front door is over 60 years old and I have not been able to use a key to unlock it for about 10 years. Due to the style of the lock/handle it could not just be swapped out, which means replacing the door…. which of course is not a standard size. $$$I called Gary to see if there was anything he could do to help me. I told him it was no hurry, whenever he was in the area. (After all, it had been 10 years.). On the phone he was upfront with me about an estimate, AND he was at my house in a few days. He took the lock apart, clean it out and replaced a few parts to get it working like it was brand new. I couldn’t be happier! I should have called him earlier!I 100% recommend Gary for all of your locksmith needs!! He is a very nice, kind, professional, and knowledgeable man.

I was locked out of my gun safe and Gary walked me through a potential temporary fix to get it open. I was able to get it to open. I opted to replace the faulty digital keypad with a manual dial. Gary was super help and happy to help install the new lock. He was on time and very informative. He made sure everything was working properly on the safe and made sure i was comfortable opening the new dial lock before he left. I would recommend him to anyone with trouble with a safe.
Response from the owner: Ryan, thank you so much for the review and recommendation! We are always happy to help with safes or any other locksmith service. Call us again anytime you need us in the future. Thank you for your business!
