Grass Valley locksmith Mike Bardsley

Mike Bardsley started his locksmithing career as a locksmith trainee here in Grass Valley in the late 70's. In 1985 he took a 4 year leave from the Gold Country at which time he worked for a major locksmith wholesaler in Southern California. This gave him an in-depth knowledge of lock manufacturers and their products. While there he participated in many industry related classes, seminars and trade shows. He continues taking classes today to stay abreast of the new security hardware constantly appearing on the market.

Mike helped form the Los Angeles / Orange Counties Chapter of the Associated Locksmiths of America (ALOA) and served as its first chairman.

In 1989 he returned to Grass Valley where he continued as manager for his previous employer.

With 35+ years of experience, Mike started his own company   -   Bardsley Safe and Lock.
