Weiser was founded in 1904 in South Gate, California.[1] Early products included custom designed locks and associated hardware.

In 1967, Norris Industries purchased Weiser. Norris Industries merged with Masco Building Products Corporation in 1985. In 2003, Weiser was purchased by Black & Decker. In 2007, Weiser introduced the Weiser Smart Key in Canada. Kwikset would use this design as the basis of their 2008 Smart Key lock marketed in the United States.
