Mike’s Lock Shop

Mike Cogan started to work in the “lock” business during his teen years when he worked for a Philadelphia locksmith company. Mike found the business fascinating. After serving with distinction in Vietnam in the US Navy as a jet engine mechanic, and later at the Naval Air War Center in Warminster, Mike received his BA from Temple University.

He started Mike’s Lock Shop as a mobile locksmith with one truck in 1972. Six months later he opened his first store in Warminster on Street Road. Within a few years he moved to a larger, more visible location on York Road. In 1980 he moved just one block to the current location. Mike built the business through involvement in the community.

He has served on the Board of Directors of the Greater Warminster Chamber of Commerce and the Warminster Rotary Club where he was awarded the Paul Harris Award for Outstanding Service to the Community. Mike has also served on the Board of Directors of the Greater Philadelphia Locksmith Association.

Mike was a true entrepreneur. He was not satisfied to simply install a lock as per a customer’s request; but preferred to work with his clients to properly identify their needs and deliver the best solution. This is what really sets Mike’s Lock Shop apart from other locksmiths. Mike, along with his sons Dan and Ben, has built his complete security center by providing the best solutions for his clients’ security needs. The business has survived the test of time – 2024 is our 52nd Anniversary!

It is truly a family business. In 2023, 2 years after Mike’s passing Ben purchased the business from his brother Dan. While Ben runs Mike’s Lock Shop / Access Lock Technologies, Dan is president of Access Security Corp which installs integrated security systems that target larger businesses and institutions. Mike’s wife, Candy, is head of accounting.
