DOUG KATT is ready to handle all of your key cutting and locksmithing needs with his complete mobile shop that he runs out of the back of his van. He can be found most Saturdays at the Downtown Owosso Farmers Market and is available by appointment. His company is called A-2-Z Keys, and for good reason, as he makes a habit out of providing locksmithing services most others do not. While hardware stores typically offer 200 different types of key blanks, Katt, who spent 37 years as the head locksmith for Michigan State University, stocks roughly 1,500 different key blanks, including transponder chip keys. He also installs deadbolts, re-keys homes, provides lock-out services across Shiawassee County, sells and repairs key fobs, can originate most keys for most locks, and can even cut keys with only a picture to guide him. Katt also provides senior services and offers free child rescue services.

Doug is in his fourth season at the market, though the Locksmith Security Association of Michigan member has been providing his services across Shiawassee County for much longer and works with most of the area’s used car dealerships. Doug recommends storing his phone number, (989) 277-5869, “Because you want to be prepared for when that emergency happens.”

Doug is shown here Saturday, June 18 at the Downtown Owosso Farmers Market. The lines are usually long to receive the locksmithing artists’ services, so plan ahead or call for an appointment. (Independent Photo/Graham Sturgeon)
