About Bomac’s Locksmiths

Bomac’s is more than just family-owned — it’s family-grown.

Bud and Ida McCarthy started Bomac’s Locksmiths in 1947. Their nephew Clint Phalen ran it for 44 years and now his son, Alan, runs it after working in the business his entire life.

“We have become the ‘go-to-team-of-locksmiths’ for local residents in Walnut Creek and surrounding cities, property managers in Contra Costa County and car owners throughout the East Bay. We really do service every lock, key, safe and remote.”

We are certified, licensed, bonded and insured — all of us — but we know that’s not the only reason so many of our customers rely upon us. At Bomac’s, we treat all of our customers like our family, employees and friends. (That may be why so many of our customers stop by our storefront just to say hi.)
