About us



C-Works Inc. is a privately owned corporation located in the beautiful Pacific Northwest.  We have been inventing, designing, and manufacturing security locking hardware for over 20 years.  While working for the State of Oregon as a locksmith I received a call from the local utility company needing access to one of our secure electrical vaults.  Not wanting to give them a master or controlled key I started thinking about ways of shared access, gate locks & multi-access without the old way of daisy chaining locks together.  After months of researching options the first Gate Keeper Locking System products was developed with patents filed.  With Gate Keeper Locking System as our flagship product we created the 2 padlock, 3, padlock, 4 padlock options.  A few years later we developed and added to our line the manager’s lockout link.  In the case where you have a student, contractor or employee needing access to a shared access point the GM M6006 manager’s lockout link allows a manager at any time to lock out the person by adding their own padlock.  

Engineering, assembly and quality control is performed in the USA while we source materials globally. The majority of our products are made in the USA but some of the steel and small components are globally sourced.

If you have an idea or have a special need please contact us.  If we are unable to help you, we will point you in the right direction.
