The Antique Lock Literature page is now available in the Tools section. This page will serve as a repository for lock literature that is at least 50 years old. This sort of information can be especially valuable in older, larger cities where some of this hardware is still in use. At launch, we over 25 PDFs. These PDFs include books, catalogs, price lists, and more from the following names:

  • A.C. Hobbs
  • Briggs & Stratton
  • Diebold Safe & Lock Co.
  • Eagle Lock Co.
  • Henry R. Towne
  • Linus Yale Jr.
  • Lockwood Hardware Manufacturing Co.
  • P&F Corbin Co.
  • Mosler Safe Co.
  • Russell & Erwin Manufacturing Co.
  • Sargent & Greenleaf Co.
  • Yale & Towne Manufacturing Co.

As with most things of this website, this Tool will be routinely updated with new (or should I say old?) content as it becomes available. If you have antique lock literature that you would like to share with us so that we may add it to this tool, please contact us.
