About Connor Locksmiths Watford

Connor Locksmiths: experienced Locksmith in Watford, Hertfordshire

As a family-run locksmith business that moved into Leavesden Road in Watford back in 1961, it’s fair to say that we’re Watford’s oldest locksmiths.

The history of Connors

Some of you may remember the hardware store, Hemmings, in St Albans Road. Stan Connor worked there back in 1946 and started repairing locks as part of his job. He moved into premises behind the Wishing Well pub in St Albans Road and started trading as S E Connor locksmiths in approximately 1955.

Stan was one of the original members of the Master Lock Association and joined the Watford Chamber of Commerce back in 1971. He retired from the business in 1982, when John Baughen took over. When John retired in 2003, David Henderson took over and still runs the business today. There really isn’t anything David doesn’t know about business or home security. You can read more about him and his team here.

A local business for local people

Having the shop in Leavesden Road, Watford, David is heavily involved in the local community, having retained Chamber of Commerce membership as well as being an active member of BNI Junction in Watford. Connor Locksmiths are keen supporters of Watford’s Peace Hospice and David has helped out with their 13-mile Starlight Walk for the last few years.

“I’m proud of the reputation we have locally for being reliable, honest, trustworthy and for doing a good job. We really do offer great value for money. I’m excited that we’ve added an online shop to our website and that we’ll be adding thousands of products to it, but I hope that people still come to our real shop in Watford or I’ll miss the favourite part of my job; dealing with the public. If you can’t see what you’re looking for on the website today, please pick the phone up and talk to us, we’re known as ‘Watford’s friendliest locksmiths’ for a reason!”
