Lock it up!

Who We Are

A family business since 1985

When my father and I started our business back in 1985, little did we know that we would give birth to a whole new product category— towing safety and security! Since then, our company has been responsible for most of the innovations in this category. While our competitors follow with their best efforts, we continue to lead with not only our innovation, but with our world class quality, service and reliability. When you purchase any one of our products, you can take comfort in the fact that it has our 30 years of experience built-in. This is ultimately what you count on to keep your towing experience safe, secure, and hassle free.

We design, develop, produce, and sell our products. Design isn't just the way something looks, it’s also the way something works. With more than a dozen patents, our products are different … for a reason. Whether it’s our All Weather Grips for easier handling, our compact Open Pack peg packaging that takes half the space of traditional clamshell pack, or our time tested screw-and-lock locking action, it’s all the result of our desire to bring you creative solutions to your towing needs.

We were born in Michigan and bred on hitches and trailers all over North America. And we still manufacture our products in the heartland of the automotive world – Michigan USA! Michigan is at the crossroads of industrial America. Some of the world’s best manufacturers, people and many of our customers work, live and play here. We are proud to be part of this! 80% of the components are produced within a one hour drive of our plant. With this short supply chain, it is key to us in getting our customers what they need, when they need it, and at a price they can afford!

When you purchase our products, you can be sure that you are not only getting the best product at the best price, but also a product that was made and assembled with consideration for its impact on the environment, the health and well-being of the people that produce the product, and the business laws and practices of our suppliers’ country or municipality. #lockitup #deadboltlocks
