Wilson Bohannan is an American lock manufacturer that mostly produces lower security padlocks. Founded in 1860 in Brooklyn, Wilson Bohannan first made padlocks for railway companies. Today Wilson Bohannan locks are still not commonly found in household use. Most of their padlocks are purchased in bulk by companies such as the utility company PG&E. WB padlocks are known for their mostly brass construction reducing rust and allowing them to work well in outdoor conditions.
