Both cylinders or night latches made by this brand have been employed in Britain since the early 20th century, and remain in use around the country, helping to shore up homes, schools, and businesses.

Ingersoll has its origins in the American Ingersoll Watch Company, which saw massive success at the turn of the 20th century with the introduction of their ‘dollar watch’ – the cheapest watch available to buy at the time.
In 1904, they sought to replicate this success across the pond, setting up a store and factory in London, where they sold ‘crown’ watches for 5 shillings – about the equivalent of a dollar.
While the American business eventually fell into bankruptcy, the London-based subsidiary lived on, now solely British-owned.
During the Second World War, it manufactured locks used to secure the lines that attached gliders to their towing aircraft. But in the commercial sector, it would produce locks that are used today. Here are some of their enduringly popular models.
• Ingersoll SC71 – The ‘world famous’ 10-lever rim automatic deadlock can be identified by its broad lever and has been in continuous production since 1969. Its famous design offers a high level of security – through the abundance of Ingersoll keys has diminished their utility. Many now have a Mul T Lock cylinder fitted in their models, which comes with a registration card (as the original did), ensuring the lock and key are a unique pair. With us you can install a good security lock alternative at any time.
• The NS80 model – Another famous 10-lever rim automatic deadlock with a distinctive, prominent ring, it ceased production in 1999.
• Ingersoll M6 Mortice Lock – A sturdy mortice lock that ceased production in 1990.
