It all began in a small keybooth

CEO and owner behind the brand is Scott Smick. His journey in the locksmithing industry began a few years after High School. Established in 1983, Scott's business began as a small keybooth in La Habra, CA selling only keys and offering locksmith services.


Taking my first steps as a locksmith, I ventured into self-employment. Approximately five years later, I founded Center Lock and Safe. Over the course of 41 years, I perfected my craft, cultivating a wealth of experience and building strong relationships with numerous commercial clients. 


As locksmiths advance in their careers, they often specialize in various areas like access control, automotive locksmithing, or safes. For me, my mechanical inclination led me to develop a keen interest in safes and safe work.

Around 15 years ago, I embarked on a new venture, founding OutLaw Safe Company, where I could focus more exclusively on safes. A few years after that, I  secured a prime location in Anaheim, CA in the heart of Orange County. Our showroom has an extensive display of both new and used safes. Specializing in gun safes and accompanying accessories, we offer a comprehensive range of products and services.


Our team now consists of four technicians: John, Luke, Josh, and myself Scott. No doubt, our team is equipped with both knowledge and strength. Knowledge in safe cracking, and the muscles to move safes that are hundreds of pounds. At OutLaw Safe Company, our commitment to quality, integrity, and customer satisfaction has remained the same as we've grown from a small key booth to a large retail store.
