I love this question: “so, why are you FLYING locksmiths?”

Also quite popular: “what is up with the key guy on the van?”

The answer is that they are both key to the history of the TFL family business!

While training to become a pilot in 1946, our company’s founder, WWII veteran William McMenimon, Sr., needed a way to provide for his family. So, he started a locksmith company out of his jeep. Thus the name, and thus the classic pilot mascot – “Buzz”.  Seventy years later, the business is still running strong and franchising, the Ann Arbor office opened in October of 2016.  We plan to continue William’s legacy of providing top notch locksmith and security services to the community, at a fair price, using the highest quality parts, while staying true to family values.
