History

Schlage was founded in San Fransisco, California in 1920 by Walter Schlage. Schlage's original locks were focused on push-button combination locks.[1] In 1927, Charles Kendrick became president of Schlage amidst financial troubles. Schlage and Kendrick went on to successfully revive the company.

In 1974 Schlage was purchased by Ingersoll Rand and became part of the Ingersoll Rand Door Hardware Group.
