About Owner

Ron Hinson

Hi, I’m Ron. I’m the owner-operator behind ACH Locksmith Madison.
I’ve been invested in the Madison area for close to 30 years. During this time I’ve raised two daughters who attended the local schools.
Over the years, I’ve learned that great service begins and ends with experienced and friendly professionals, and that’s exactly what I offer. Unlike some other techs in the business, I genuinely enjoy meeting and serving people.
I’ve received some of the best training in the country having graduated from fully accredited Professional Locksmiths of America Training. I’m one of the only locksmiths in Wisconsin that can make this claim. With a focus on personalized service, competitive rates, and customer satisfaction, I’m always striving to meet and exceed your expectations.

Talk to the Owner Directly

ACH is not corporate-owned. We’re an independent, Madison-area small business. With a friendly, independent spirit to match.
At ACH you talk and work directly with the owner Ron, so you’re never caught in a game of “telephone” between a dispatcher and techs. And you won’t be sent a random tech making minimum wage from a barely-vetted network. (Ie: someone who just doesn’t care.)
Though being locked out is stressful, we aim to bring you the silver lining of a great experience.
You’ll come away from your local locksmith experience feeling good from:

I slid into a ditch and locked my keys in my car, a series of very unfortunate events. Waited for other services to come help which could have been hours. Ron was able to help within an hour. Took him 30 seconds to unlock it, and my car is pretty old. He also jumped my car which he did not have to do. If I ever need assistance again I definitely know who to call.

After dealing with numerous other locksmiths in the Madison area that gave up, Ron arrived quickly and was able to get my car running again for the first time in 8 months after it was broken into in Chicago. I would highly recommend Ron to anyone facing complex automotive locksmith-related issues!

I needed a new battery in my car fob as well as an additional fob - a quick responder who wouldn’t break the bank. Ron was super professional, a great guy and super speedy. Reasonable prices, too. 5* 💯 I will definitely be using him for all my lock and key needs.

Ron is awesome! Came within the hour of contacting him and when he got here he opened up my car door within 5 minutes, would’ve taken less but we were trying to figure out the year of the vehicle. Price was fair as well. Hopefully I don’t need a locksmith again haha, but if I do definitely calling Ron again.

S/O ACH Locksmith! He has save the day for me twice now. The first time he helped with a dead battery. And now this time he program a brand new key fob. Programmed my new key without needing my old one might I add. Needless to say I got his number locked in my phone for future reference.Really Professional, Humble, easy to work with.

I needed a car key copied. He came out the day that I called, TO MY JOB, so that I wouldn't miss work, and copied the key on the spot. Couldn't have been more affordable (about 1/3 the price of the dealership quote), polite or convenient.
He came out within 20 minutes of us calling having been locked out of our house. He adjusted his route to fit us in before heading to a call out of town, which would have left us out in the cold for a few hours!While he was there, he not only got us back into our house but finished installing the keypad lock that I had tried to install and failed at! We very appreciated the quick service and extra help he gave to us to make sure that I cannot lock us out again!

I had a 2011 Mercedes ML350 dead In my driveway over an hour away from Madison. My key went through the wash and I had no way to get the car started. I called everyone in the Madison area including the dealership (who was absolutely going to murder me price wise) and I was put in touch with ACH locksmith. He was able to come to me and save me the price of the tow AND undercut the price of the key being programmed! Absolutely awesome experience and greatly appreciated. Wouldn’t go anywhere else in the future!

Ron came out very quickly and helped me get back into my car. He was incredibly knowledgeable, professional, and pleasant to work with. I had been locked out of my car for hours because AAA sent an under qualified locksmith who wasn’t able to help me. Getting my car unlocked was complex, but Ron knew what he was doing! Thank you so very much.

I’d go anywhere else other than Ron at ACH Locksmiths. He didn’t return my calls in over four hours and then tried to charge me over twice as much as the dealership for a new key. Save yourself time and money and look elsewhere.
