PHS Locksmiths, owned and operated by Kathy and Al Zaniolo, is located at 6810 Roosevelt Road in Oak Park, Illinois. Our staff has provided highly skilled and friendly service to homes, businesses and at our store since 1982. (Yes, we do make keys!)

As required by law, we are licensed by the state of Illinois to perform locksmith services.  This means that our business has provided proof of insurance to the Il. Dept. of Finance and Professional Regulation (IDFPR). Also, that our locksmith employees' fingerprints have been scanned and run through the State Police and FBI criminal databases.


Kathy Zaniolo, CML is the founder and president of PHS Locksmiths. She started the business in 1982 in Forest Park and later moved the business to it's current location in Oak Park, Il.  She is a past president of both the Greater Chicago Locksmith Assn and the Allied Locksmiths for Illinois.  She is a member of the Associated Locksmiths of America and the Berwyn Chamber of Commerce.  She is a past board member and a current member of the OPRF Chamber of Commerce.  Kathy served for four years as the first Locksmith board member for the State of Illinois Private Detective, Security, Alarm and Locksmith Licensing Board.

Albert Zaniolo, CRL (retired) is a union carpenter turned locksmith. He started PHS Locksmiths with Kathy in 1982. After 32 years he has retired from active service, but he often stops by to check on how things are going and answer questions from staff and customers.

Felipe (Fil) Correa, CRL worked at Peasley Hardware in Forest Park where he found he liked making keys and fixing locks and wanted to know more. He completed the HPC locksmith training program and joined PHS Locksmiths in 1988. Since that early beginning he has become proficient in most areas of locksmithing, including commercial door hardware and safe servicing.

Joseph (Joe) Catallo joined PHS Locksmiths in 2012. Although new to our company he was a locksmith at Bullis Lock in Chicago for over 30 years. Solving lock problems and installations are his specialty.

Joey Catallo joined PHS Locksmiths more recently. He is our shop keycutter and lock technician.  He is currently learning and taking classes so he will be able to do service at customers homes as well. Joey is the son of our locksmith Joe Catallo.
