The CLS promise


Certified locksmiths and security will promote all companies to the public in the most effective way within our means.

We will deal with any issues raised by the public and CLS members in a fair but robust manor to ensure the reputation of the CLS and its members are always protected.

We will seek to protect members from any unfair claims or assertions by customers or competitors by investigating thoroughly and support them where necessary within our ability.

An endorsement is hard earned and is a privilege given by others in the industry. We will take robust due diligence when verifying and support without bias.

We will not conduct, support, or promote any training to new entrants into the locksmith industry. Our members have worked hard to build their businesses so revenue gained from them will not be used to create competition for them.

We will not endorse or allow any national locksmith company or franchise.
