My name is James Hanna. My wife Mary and I started our business in 1999 as a mobile locksmith service and grew to online sales in 2003. Over the years I have learned many things about door hardware but one stands out the most - everything is not created equal. It may look nice but will it hold up? Will it perform? Will it stand the test of time?
I closed our online store in 2015 and decided to utilize the knowledge I gained over the years to provide door hardware consultation services.
In 2014 we purchased a well-known and respected business in Bozeman Montana. Dave's Lock & Key started in 1956 as Dave's Key Shop by David South. He grew his business by providing professional, reliable services and products to his customers. People relied on David to get them what they needed and he succeeded.
That business model transferred to the new owners when he sold it in the 1980's to the Morrisseys then again when we purchased it in 2014.
I have always given our customers the truth and educated them on the quality of hardware they had selected. Sometimes the customer preferred to save money at the time but eventually had learned that spending a bit more now was better than the cost incurred by using inferior products.
We now have a greater opportunity to educate our customers and that's what I'm here to do for you.
