Who We Are

We are locksmiths, carpenters, and building engineers employed by and/or working for colleges, universities, hospitals, companies, institutions and government facilities involved in the installation, servicing, maintenance, specifying and/or recommending of of mechanical, electromechanical or electronic security and life safety hardware.

Why the Institutional Locksmiths' Association?

Institutional locksmiths found themselves with problems but nowhere
to turn for help. We needed a forum to be able to discuss problems which occur in the institutional environment, such as:

* Help with key control and master keying issues
* Help with technical information
* Help locating parts, supplies, key codes, etc.
* Help communicating internal needs to their institution.
* Help with electronic or access control issues.

Benefits to Institutions

We are dedicated to increasing our professionalism for the benefit of our institutions through....

* Education
* Communication
* Cooperation
* Certification

Our Corporate and Associate Members include factory representatives and distributors of locksmith and security supplies. These contacts are invaluable to your institution by offering to members of the ILA:

* Free or low-cost training
* Products updates
* New product reviews

Benefits to the Industry

The ILA acts as a liaison between Institutional Locksmiths and Mainstream
Locksmiths through cooperative efforts with Industry Associations, as well
as helping our members to better assist external providers to do their work
more professionally. We welcome those mainstream Locksmiths who have
a strong interest in the care and handling of an Institution's security
hardware relatedneeds. The ILA offers low cost training on Institutional
hardware at their National Education Conference. Additionally, each member
represents thousands of doors, giving us a strong voice in the industry,
which can benefit all Locksmiths.
