"Professional & On Time!..."

"After evicting a tenant I needed a locksmith to urgently change the locks on the flat & ensure it was secure. Ringing Genesis Lock Services on Sunday night Rusty arranged for one of his employees to be there on site at 9am. He arrived on time, professional in his approach, asked the right questions, did the job quickly & efficiency. Would I use Genesis lock services again? Absolutely! In fact I have a job next week for them! Thank you guys."

Simon Cope - Landlord, Auckland



"Quality Unrivalled Craftsmanship..."

"As an installer & monitoring station of keyless electronic security systems for high rise commercial buildings in central Auckland, plus industrial premises throughout Auckland I need a Locksmith I can both trust AND does quality work that is unrivalled and is craftsman like as the standard my clients expect is 2nd to none! Hence why I insist on using Genesis Lock Services for all jobs related to their trade. I cannot recommend them high enough to any customer - commerical, industrial or domestic."

Russell Smith - 6th Generation Locksmith

Hi i'm Russell Smith (Rusty) I have solidified my place in the Auckland Locksmith scene as a reliable & responsive mobile locksmith, servicing the commercial and property management service sector as well as residential works. Having been a Professional Locksmith for 34 years, I still enjoy everyday and look ahead beyond Covid-19 to a great future.


As for my presonal life and passions-

I have spent much of my adult life racing Bicycles around NZ and while racing the NZ Mountain Bike Nationals in Nelson 2003 I met my (now wife) Denise who was visiting NZ from Marquette,Michigan,USA and after a whirlwind romance we were married 4 months later! Denise has a background in the hospitality industry and grew up in the wilderness of the Upper Peninsula Michigan, USA.

We quickly formed a bond that saw us growing beyond our expectations, I am a 6th generation locksmith and accompanied my father on jobs since I was 5 years old, he was a perfectionist craftsman and taught me the benefit of a keen chisel and thinking outside the box.

I did my apprenticeship with a large Locksmith corporate and after 6 months in the workshop was put "on the road" for a week's for training then I was given a Van... luckily my background saved me here (along with some common sense!) after my apprenticeship in 1988 I went to work in the family business and stayed for 13yrs until moving to a larger firm and worked through to Locksmith Manager, I soon realised I would have to "hang Up my Tools" to be in the office,which I didn't want to do.

With Denise's support (and a small push) I started Genesis Lock Services Ltd.

Everyday is an adventure finding solution's for client's in Auckland and beyond.

My passion is service and I will turn myself "inside out" to give you the best service you ever had.


In September 2005 our son Graham was born giving me joy beyond comprehension, then in September 2007 our daughter Zared topping off our "Pigeon Pair".

In May 2009 we changed the company name to Genesis Locksmiths to clarify our position in the market.

In October 2019 I broke my Neck and got a Spinal Cord Injury where I was rendered Quadriplegic temporarily and was off work for over 7 months showing the love and care of my clients asthey worked with me during my recovery.

I still Love living in Ponsonby, enjoying our thriving city and every working day!

I thank each and every one of our customers for making the choice of using Genesis Locksmiths Ltd and pledge to bring you excellence in Product's and Service.
