About Francis' Keys

In 2023, John O'Rangers discovered that the Frederick, MD area has limited automobile locksmith services, especially with the newest vehicles on the road. While the region has many outstanding locksmiths serving a variety of residential and commercial customers, most only provide limited automobile coverage. With the establishment of Francis' Keys, we can provide solutions to 90% of vehicles on the road today, and often at a fraction of dealer cost.

In addition to Francis' Keys, Mr. O'Rangers is also the owner of Frederick's oldest cell phone and tablet repair shop, CDC Cellular Repair, proudly serving the community since 2013. The shop provides comprehensive repair solutions for iPhones, iPads, Samsung Galaxies, Motorola, and many other smartphones and tablets.

Prior to his local business career, Mr. O'Rangers worked in the print publishing industry for two national daily newspapers and a national wholesaler of magazines serving major retailers across the country. He is a resident of Frederick County for 29 years. Prior to his residency in the county, he grew up in nearby Poolesville, MD.

Mr. O'Rangers earned his locksmith accreditation at the American Center for Locksmith Training, an affiliate of Keyman Lock & Safe, in Ogden, UT. In addition to his locksmith training, he has over 10 years of experience in the repair and refurbishment of cell phones, tablets, and consumer electronics. He is also a licensed Amateur Radio operator, call sign KB3ZXO.

Mr. O'Rangers earned his BS degree in 1995 from Towson University in Towson, MD and an MBA in 2012 from Mount St. Mary's University in Emmitsburg, MD. He is a graduate of St. John's Catholic Prep, Class of 1990, and St. John's Regional Catholic School, class of 1986.
