Mul-T-Lock is an Israeli lock manufacturer and subsidiary of the Swedish company ASSA ABLOY. The company develops, manufactures and markets high security locks and access control systems globally. Its products and its trademarks are used by professionals, businesses, institutions and consumers.

History[edit]

Yavne, Israel, headquarters of the company

In 1976, the success of the four way lock spread worldwide as marketing efforts expanded globally. With the company's rapid growth, Mul-T-Lock expanded its manufacturing plant and by 1982, the company had greatly increased its product line to include a wide range of High Security cylinders, locks and accessories, steel doors and vehicle protection products.

Mul-T-Lock also began to manufacture automatic key cutting and assembly machines. In combination with custom developed software, these key cutting machines now allow locksmiths to create complex key systems. Mul-T-Lock was acquired by ASSA ABLOY in February 2000. Chubb Locks is the part of Mul-T-Lock.

International pressure forced Mul-T-Lock to relocate from an Israeli settlement in the West Bank to within pre-1967 Israeli territory.[1]
