RANDOLPH (CBS) – A Randolph landmark is back where it belongs.

WBZ NewsRadio 1030’s Karen Twomey reports

The Flying Locksmiths on North Main Street have their sign back.

The decades-old sign came down five months ago for much needed repairs.

“This time, it’s all solid, dense, so no water can get in it,” owner Barry McMenimon told WBZ NewsRadio Monday.

His father William started the company back in 1946 when he came home from World War II.

“He flew with an uncle. They were both private pilots, but my dad decided to become the ‘Flying Locksmith,’” Barry said.

So William McMenimon went ahead with his idea – mobile locksmithing.

“He was the first guy to be cutting keys right in the car. You didn’t have to bring it back.”

Barry’s children are now part of the business, the third generation of the family to carry on the tradition.
