About Howard Safe and Locks

Located in The Heights since 1946, Howard Safe & Lock has been a leader in the security industry serving the Greater Houston and surrounding areas ever since.

Our Store History

Originally known as Howard’s Key and Bicycle. Uncle Howard Yetter opened the doors and as the name suggests, began locksmithing and repairing bicycles. Nephew Roy Yetter, began working part time for his Uncle at an early age, repairing lawnmowers. In the mid seventies, the company began to focus strictly on locksmithing and safe services and changed the name to Howard Safe and Lock. The business continued to blossom, and Roy eventually purchased the business from his Uncle back in the nineteen-eighties. The services offered have grown to include Alarm Installations, Camera Installations and Access Control. In July of 2017 Vidal Safe & Lock, LLC purchased the assets of the company. Roy Yetter continues to work as The Qualified Manager. His reputation in the industry and community is unsurpassed.
