After sustaining and recovering from a serious injury, Eric Rutherford, began searching for a new career path. He completed a certification program at Highline Community College through which he learned the steps to starting a small business.  Next, he and his wife, Kimberly, began exploring various industry niches .  Ultimately they chose to put to work Eric’s 10 years experience in the security industry by deciding to open a locksmith company in SeaTac, WA.

Eric continues his education in security and locksmithing by taking courses in different lock and security strategies and following developments in the industry.  In addition, Eric and Kimberly have completed all the necessary steps to assure that the business, Better Lock and Key, LLC is licensed, bonded, and insured. As such, Eric can provide the best quality and experience possible to the customer.

Better Lock and Key specializes in pop-a-lock services for vehicles, lock installation and repair, rekeying, and more. In the future, Eric plans to extend his business to include decoding, safe cracking, and providing others with job opportunities.

A resident of SeaTac for nearly 7 years, Eric has been a dedicated servant of the community. He is well known for helping others in need; especially the senior community. Eric is an active member at a local church, where he and his family are involved in children’s ministries, as well as a small group ministry.

During Eric’s leisure time, he enjoys fishing, hiking, camping, and gold panning while spending time with his family. His two sons work alongside him during their spare time. One day, Eric’s hope is to provide his children the all American dream; and one day, perhaps his children will take it to the next level, and carry on the legacy of Better Lock and Key, LLC.
