Door Store America is dedicated to bringing interesting, well-crafted hardware back into American homes. Until about 1930, there was a proud history of hardware in America. Hundreds of small factories made an enormous variety of creatively designed products. Craftsmen from many disciplines devoted their energies to making locks that were highly functional and beautiful.

Unfortunately, during the depression, many of these factories failed. During WWII, brass became scarce and lock designs were reduced to the bare essentials. In more recent years, the emphasis on cheap, high volume building products has discouraged manufacturers from re-introducing well-made hardware.

But now these ideas are changing. Americans are re-discovering the satisfaction that comes from owning well-designed products. A mission of Door Store America is to make it possible for homeowners to get more creative with their door locks. We are striving to provide more than just a way to latch a door. We want to promote a highly functional range of products that consumers can use as elements of d├ęcor as well.
