Lockwork & Routine Maintenance
Just as with any mechanical equipment, keeping your safe deposit boxes and vault on a scheduled maintenance plan insures that it continues to function efficiently and reduces future repair. It also portrays to your customer that you care about their valuables and most important possessions.

We will be happy to provide you with an estimate for our lockwork services, BUT first we must visit your vault and determine the various types of safe deposit locks and equipment in your vault. Our survey only takes a few minutes but will provide us with the information needed.
  • Lock Rotations
  • Lock Repairs
  • Lock Replacements
  • Delinquent Drills
  • Key Duplications
  • Factory Cut Guard Keys
  • Setting locks to match Guard Keys
Lock Rotations
Lock rotation is a court tested method of reducing the possibility of unauthorized access. All locks to previously rented Safe Deposit boxes are physically removed and exchanged with a lock on another box. Imagine how you, as a customer, would feel if you had just rented a Safe Deposit box and found that the previous renter also possessed a key that would un-lock your box. This rotation method ensures that if a key to a previously rented box has been duplicated, it will no longer continue to operate in the lock on the original box.

Emergency Service
Has your customer lost their key(s)? Do you have a court order for a box to be opened? If so, you want someone you can depend on to be there when you need service. Our technicians are trained to help solve most emergencies that may arise.
  • Emergency Drills
  • Disaster Recovery

This container, which remains the property of American Deposit Services, Inc. (ADS), has been designed especially for the protection of your surrendered and ready-to-rent safe deposit box keys. Two original keys to the outside door will be delivered to your organization at the time of installation. ADS does not retain a duplicate key to this lock. The keys to the lock in the top drawer remain in the possession of ADS and the only entry to this drawer can be made by ADS.

At American Deposit Services (ADS), we customize our service to our customer's needs so your installation will be personalized for your institution's vault size and current rented vs. available status. Either via phone or through a visit by our staff, we will do an inventory of your vault which will provide us with the information necessary to deliver an estimation for this service. You will also receive more detailed information about the entire process at that time.

Available / Surrendered Safe Deposit Box Keys
Available box keys - Keys to ready to rent boxes should be kept under strict dual control to prevent an unauthorized key from being obtained. Court cases have been lost on the premise that an unauthorized key could have been made. Surrendered box keys – The handling of surrendered keys holds the same liability as the ready to rent keys. All previously surrendered box keys are checked and serviced. Future surrendered keys will be placed by the customer directly into the cabinet locked drawer which immediately places the keys under dual control.

Our Protect-A-Key System™ has been designed around simplicity of operation. A special training session will be provided at installation. Custom written instructions tailored specifically to your organization will be provided for a nominal cost.

Hundreds of our customers are protected with the Protect-A-Key System™. We would be happy to provide you references. We are confident you will be pleased with the sense of security and protection of the Protect-A-Key System™.

ADS experienced staff will audit and identify all rented boxes by recording rental date from all contracts. Access records will be verified to the history cards.
