CLARK History


CLARK Security Products began as the Key Department of the Wilson F. Clark Wholesale Hardware Co. in San Diego, CA, selling a small line of key blanks, padlocks, and a few Ilco key machines. Our market was local and a few orders a day was cause for celebration.


A new corporation was formed under the name of CLARK Security Products, Inc. Richard Clark developed the company into a reliable locksmith supplier, stocking a wide variety of commercial and residential security products.


Richard passed the torch to a group of managers who combined CLARK’s tradition of care and concern for the locksmithing trade with a series of innovative programs designed to help lockshop owners grow their business.


CLARK Security Products was purchased by Anixter International, a leading global distributor of communication and security products. Through this partnership, we continue to provide innovative security solutions to meet the diverse needs of our customers across the country.
