Our Story

Austin’s Key & Lock was founded by Austin & Linda Hardwick in 1978. Austin worked at Sturm machine shop in Barboursville WV for a few years and knew he had entrepreneur inside of him. He took a mail order locksmithing course and shadowed under Judy’s locksmith in Charleston while working nights at Sturm. He started with his small minivan and garage providing basic locksmithing services for the residents of the Huntington area.

Daniel their son later stepped in and started working full time with Austin as a technician and started following in his father’s footsteps to one day fill Austin and Linda’s role in the company. He then started to grow the company further than Austin had ever dreamed. In 2018 Austin’s had rebranded to AKL Security Solutions to help change with the times and show customers that we offered much more than locksmithing services. Since then, Austin has passed away, but his locksmith legacy still lives through the company that he built.
