The  Locksmith's  Creed

   A Locksmith always remembers his public trust.  With him rests the security of property and fortune. 

   As  a  public  guardian  he  shuns  the  dishonest,  the wicked and the avaricious. 

   For thousands of years he and his predecessors have placed trust and honor above temptation.  His honesty is incorruptible. 

   His allies are the custodians of law and order. He is an artist at his trade and  the  symbol of skill and integrity to the world.
