Rick Bayuk - Owner

As a 5th generation locksmith, Russ Rackliffe founded Rackliffe Lock & Safe in 1974,
We are dedicated to provide you with the best and most complete locksmith services to meet all of your security needs.
We adhere to the strict standards set by our founder.   No answering services, no sub-contractors,  you'll be dealing with us.

Company Profile

In 1974, we moved the lock equipment from our family's locksmith business B. D. Rackliffe, Inc.
which had recently closed due to my grandfather's death, from Springfield Massachusetts to Westbrook Connecticut.
With that equipment and help from my great uncle Robert Rackliffe, also a locksmith in Springfield, we started anew here on the shoreline.
We had a locksmith shop in Westbrook for 8 years, then going mobile only for 7 years, then back to a shop in Old Saybrook for 5 years.

Family History

Here's a listing from the 1867 Middletown Directory showing William Rackliffe as a gun and lock smith and tobacconist.
He was my great, great grandfather, my family's first locksmith!
