Why You Should Choose WLS

  • High-Quality Stainless Steel: WLS is the first—and only—company to utilize stainless steel throughout the assembly of the locks. Manufacturing the lock components from stainless steel ensures unparalleled strength, durability, and resistance to corrosion, scratches, tarnishes, peeling, tampering, and more.

Willoughby builds all of our products in Indianapolis, Indiana, USA, and—except for a few components—we manufacture all aspects of our products in-house before shipping them worldwide! This allows us to constantly be in R&D for new products.
  • Exceptional Customer Service: The WLS team, with over 100 years of collective experience in the detention lock industry and the backing of Willoughby Industries’ 75 years in correctional industry manufacturing, is dedicated to ensuring your project goes as smoothly as possible. From ordering to post-purchase support and everything in between, you can count on WLS to address your needs promptly and professionally!
