Just joined this site to hopefully learn more about the Wise Lock Company out of Cleveland Ohio.

I have took an interest and started collecting this particular brand lock due to their ties with the Cleveland Welding Company who started manufacturing bicycles in late 1935.

Independent research on the inter webs yielded nothing on this lock company, which brought me to this site.

Would like to learn some company history perhaps someone has period advertising and store displays and I am also interested in purchasing a few Wise lock models that I do not have in my small collection.

All Wise locks used a flat concentric key and most wise locks that I have seen were made for the bicycle industry. However, I have seen a locking gas cap and a tire/wheel lock or some sort of contraption that I recently saw on eBay.

Anyhow, please feel free to contact me via email or PM with any and all information on this mysterious company.
