Manufacturer DescriptionBelieving he could improve on contemporary lock technology, Dale Hampton invented the weatherproof spare tire padlock. Built in 1973, Dale's new lock was capable of resisting the snow, rain and inclement weather native to his hometown of Denver, Colorado. That same year, Dale founded the Hampton Lock Company. For many years automotive dealers purchased Hampton Lock's weatherproof security products to protect spare tires and other vehicle accessories.
In 1990, Hampton Lock Company was acquired by Hampton Products International Corporation ("Hampton") and was relocated to Southern California from Denver. Hampton's shareholders believed the unique weatherproof locks could provide a strategic foundation on which to develop a complete line of security hardware and related accessory products. Based on this strategy, Hampton quickly developed a reputation for innovation, quality, value and service.
Throughout the 1990's Hampton increased the breadth and scope of its padlock and portable security hardware business. Then in 1998 the company added Brink's® locks to its product line-up. Customer response was immediate. People trusted the Brink's name and purchased more locks than at any time in category history. Hampton responded to this dramatic acceptance by offering Brink's quality products in the door lock and security lighting categories. Most recently the company added a complete line of Hampton builders hardware products to complement the Brink's security hardware collections.
