Austin Hardware & Supply, Inc. launches PowerMaster Theft Deterring Automatic Locking System


Austin Hardware & Supply, Inc. (Lee's Summit, Missouri) developed a linear actuated automatic locking system that can allow multiple compartments to be securely and conveniently locked and unlocked with only one push of a button on a key fob.

Austin engineers’ use of linear actuation enables PowerMaster to reduce the number of points of potential failure in the automatic system, as only two linear actuators are required to power the system as opposed to a separate solenoid for each latch. This design allows all locks to be easily engaged or disengaged with a single action. With no need for special latches, handles, or individual padlocks, the system provides the most convenient way for end-users to deter theft of tools or other valuables from their work trucks while on the job. Austin’s PowerMaster can be retrofit to most “gang lock” or “master lock” systems.
