Accurate Lock and Hardware began in 1960 as a division of Accurate Tool and Die manufacturing specialty locks as a sub-contractor for Yale and Towne. The company has evolved into a premier manufacturer of custom architectural hardware products. In the mid-to-late 1970s Accurate developed and furnished institutional locks specifically designed to retrofit existing preparations yet function to meet new code requirements. In fact, in response to the infamous Attica prison riot, Attica officials commissioned Accurate to manufacture custom high security locks. Within the next few years, Accurate introduced a robust dead latch, followed by a narrow backset mortise lock. Their product line includes interior mortise locks, pocket door locks and trim, pivot and Harmon hinges, heavy duty screen door locks, and marine grade locks.
