After World War II, America’s brave soldiers returned home and formed local clubs and fraternal organizations all across the nation to connect with their fellow GI’s and their families. These clubs needed access control systems not only for security, but to help them collect their annual dues.

Two veterans developed the Card Lock® system to solve this problem, and to this day, Card Lock® Company remains a proudly family-owned company dedicated to helping organizations find the perfect access control solutions for their properties.

Since 1948, Card Lock® Company continues to provide the best access control technologies America can produce.

Mobile devices have become ubiquitous tools for multi-factor authentication for online business platforms, but they’ve also become essential pieces of access control technology. Today, half of all businesses and organizations make use of mobile access controls to allow members or employees to use their smartphones or other mobile devices to access their buildings, “punch in” to time and attendance systems,, and more.

Mobile access control can easily be integrated into larger cloud systems, allows manager access to permissions, and eliminates many key card efficiencies.
