Important update, 30/08/2021:

As the best box hardware available, demand for smartWaresmartHinge and smartLock – has been rising steadily for some years now. I’ve recently been working with two excellent new manufacturers, still in UK, with a view to securing the level of supply that I require for my customers.


Polished brass hinges are now available again here


The matching smartLock is available here


Thank you to all my loyal customers – in UK and around the world.


Stay safe – and while you’re confined to your home/workshop, why not consider some smartBoxmaker distance learning … click here for more info.
