ShopKeylessLocks.com was launched in 2009 as an ecommerce solution for buying electronic keyless entry locks. We offer a wide variety of keyless deadbolt locks, keyless entry systems and keyless safes.
Behind ShopKeylessLocks.com is our parent company, Time Lock Inc. Time Lock Inc. was founded in 2005. While researching options for locks at Glen's church, which was undergoing a 2 million dollar renovation, the building committee, which Glen was a part of, came across keyless door locks that use the iButton technology. The iButton locks were ordered and installed at the church. After installing and using the locks, it was evident that there would be a market for these keyless door locks. Time Lock Inc. was formed, and Glen, along with his wife, Sandy, started selling the Eternity iButton locks. Shortly after Time Lock Inc. was up and running, Glen was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis. Due to his health, Glen was unable to perform the day to day operations of the company. At that time, their sons, Sean and Chris, became involved in the business.
Since Sean and Chris have been running the company, they have added more lines of keyless locks, such as Schlage, Kaba, LockState and Morning Industry. By adding these other manufacturers, it has allowed ShopKeylessLocks.com to offer keyless locks for residential use as well as commercial use.
