Our Story

Brookline Lock Co., Inc. was started in 1925 by Lee Kates. In the early years, the company provided a host of services from saw and knife sharpening to bicycle sales and repair to supplement the revenues in order to grow and develop the core locksmith business.

As time went on, the need for more locksmith-related services became more apparent. Now, our company’s skills have been honed into an array of specialty services such as access control, high security systems, automotive, changing old skeleton bit locks, commercial grade locking systems and high use commercial applications.

Laws have drastically changed throughout the years, which call for open communication with our clients, to make sure they adhere to all facility guidelines that pertain to their building. One such example is the Americans with Disability Act (ADA) which has forced many industrial and commercial facilities to convert locks with knobs to levers and install automated door to allow for easy access into the building for all.

Today our company offers many services and new technologies that include access control with full monitoring capabilities, intercom systems, apartment complex mailboxes, key duplication services and a complete hardware store. We have a locksmith fleet on the roads that provide 24/7 lock-out and installation services to the Boston area. We can satisfy any emergency security service from our convenient Brookline Village location, in a timely manner. Our fully-stocked hardware shop stocks everything you may need for a DIY home project or an industrial janitorial job. Our fed-ex quick ship program provides 2-day national service for all your security solutions products.
