Blind Locksmith Beats the Odds

Kenneth Jacobs still remembers hearing laughter as he walked out of  Heritage Bank after being denied a loan for his locksmith business 6 years ago.

Thanks to a lot of hard work and private funding through friends and family, Blind Faith Locksmith, a shop run entirely by the blind, is busier than ever .

"I've been told that there are dozens of locksmiths in the yellow pages, but nobody puts on a show quite like my company," Jacobs said.  "I can sense that my first time customers are nervous when they see their locksmith hopping off a bus with a seeing eye dog and walking stick-but they love our service.  The competition can't compete with our smile and charm."

On average Jacobs and his team takes two hours longer than the competition, but the clients love rooting for him as he fumbles around.  Some have even locked themselves out on purpose so they can   watch the show again and again.

So the next time you need a locksmith, you should consider giving Blind Faith a call.  They may just unlock the key to your heart.
