Important notice:


As the best box hardware available, demand for smartWaresmartHinge and smartLock – has been rising steadily for some years now.


Unfortunately the current manufacturers have proved that they’re not capable of manufacturing the numbers, quality or consistency that I require, so I’m starting to work with an excellent new manufacturer, still in UK, to secure the level of supply that I demand for my customers.


Update – 22/01/2020: These highly sought-after products should be available again very soon. Following approval of some excellent samples I am expecting the first delivery of polished brass smartHinge by the end of January, followed soon after by stainless steel. smartLock should be available again by the end of February or early March.


Thank you to all my loyal customers – in UK and around the world – for your patience in the meantime. Any queries please email me at


Thank you.
