H.L. Flake History - Est. 1912

Herbert L. Flake opened H.L. Flake in 1912. We began as a bicycle company but over time added locks and keys, material handling supplies, lawn and garden equipment, and yes, even the air rifles, skates and wagons you see depicted in this 1956 Bicycle Business Journal ad.

Independent distributor of locksmith supplies

Quickly though, our focus became locksmith tools and supplies, and with the acquisition of McDonald Dash Locksmith Supply in 2017, we are now one of the largest independent security hardware distributors in the U.S. Our knowledgeable sales staff has over 400 years combined experience in customer service and locksmithing.

We now stock more than 40,000 different items in one of the industry’s most comprehensive locksmith supply catalogs. Over the years H.L. Flake has continually added to our extensive selection of locksmith supplies that cover all categories of locksmith work. We stock tools and hardware for automotive key programming, key code cutting and duplication, commercial and residential hardware, safes and safe locks, and an incredible selection of padlocks in hundreds of keyed alike numbers.

We offer 1% savings on online orders, freight discounts and free freight on qualifying orders. Need your order tomorrow? H.L. Flake offers the best next day air rates in the industry!

At H.L. Flake, we are still committed to providing the same great value and service that we have offered since 1912. Call now to find out!
