Please do not update any fields unless you can provide a reference to go with it. I'd prefer that this page be free of speculation to avoid giving people the wrong information.

Please follow proper formatting for each state (See California if you need a full example). If no certification is required to be a Locksmith, please leave 'Locksmiths' blank.

For legal states use Legal. For illegal states use Illegal.

For unknown states use Unknown.
