History


RA-Lock Security Solutions, Inc. began doing business in 1969 as a manufacturer and designer of high-security lock housings, mainly for the vending and payphone industry. Throughout the years, we expanded our product line and capabilities. RA-Lock offers a full line of industrial and door hardware security products, ranging from mechanical solutions to electronic access control.

Mr. Leon Raye started building lock housings for vending and oil/gas manufacturers including the popular Checkmate lock housing which was also used in Christmas tree oil valves.
Later on, J.J. and Pat Gage purchased RA-Lock from Leon (Pat’s father). J.J. then invented the RA-Lock, which was used in several types of vending machines. The vending machine lock housings solely used Medeco high-security locks. Due to RA-Lock’s expertise with Medeco products and high order volumes, Medeco decided to make RA-Lock a Factory Authorized Service Center.

Historically, RA-Lock has been a Factory Authorized Service Center for Medeco and Abloy. Two of the worlds leading manufacturers in high security locking systems. Throughout the years, RA-Lock has moved away from solely being a manufacturer, and toward being a factory service center and distributor.

RA-Lock has expanded to include other high-quality product lines, and we represent and have partnered with many best in class manufacturers, which include ASSA-ABLOY, Illinois Lock Company, CompX and Key Systems, Inc. just to name a few. RA-Lock specializes in fulfilling regional orders in a timely manner.
