Ajustlock to be launched at Dubai hardware event

UAE Business

US-based Ajustlock, the world’s first adjustable barrel bolt lock, will make its debut in the Middle East region at the upcoming Hardware+Tools Middle East 2016, in Dubai, UAE.

Hardware+Tools Middle East 2016, the region’s dedicated trade show for hardware, tools, materials and machinery, will be held from May from 23 to 25, at the Dubai International Convention and Exhibition Centre.

Ajustlock is a simple, yet effective solution to the misalignment of traditional barrel locks that prevent doors, gates and stalls from locking properly. The key to its effectiveness is the latch which automatically shifts vertically when the pin is inserted, meaning even the most shoddy do it yourself (DIY) installation job will look as though it’s done by a professional, said a statement from the company.

The lock is helpful in solving the most frequent and frustrating problems faced by construction contractors, homeowners, apartment tenants – and anyone who has ever used a public bathroom, it added.

Invented by American manufacturer Ajustco, the patent-pending lock will be launched at the upcoming Hardware+Tools Middle East 2016 trade show in Dubai, and is dubbed as the ‘hero’ of commercial or DIY locking solutions for doors, gates, windows – and of course public bathrooms, saving users from potentially embarrassing moments, it said.

Jason Stile, CEO and co-founder of Ajustco, said: “The plan is to roll out Ajustlock throughout Middle East hardware stores.”

“Barrel bolt locks haven’t changed in almost 100 years, and annoying door shift and lock misalignment issues have gone unresolved, until now,” he said.

“Our company is expanding and increasing global market share for Ajustlock, and the Middle East is a source of infrastructure changes, from new construction projects to re-modelling, where individuals and contractors are more in tune with innovation and novelty,” he added.

Ahmed Pauwels, CEO of Messe Frankfurt Middle East, the organiser of Hardware+Tools Middle East, said: “The Expert Zone is ideal for regional trade visitors, contractors, retailers, and key decision makers who’re looking for equipment upgrades, or for the latest hardware and machinery that will positively impact their day-to-day operations.”

“Products showcased in this section are an indication of new developments that are shaping the future of the industry, and provide regional buyers an indication of things to come," he added.

Other international companies at the Expert Zone include Italian company Vipa, a world-leading manufacturer of plastic articles oriented to the hardware, hydraulics, electronic and healthcare sectors, Channellock from the USA, and Wiha from Germany, which produces a wide range precision tools.

The event is a magnet for trade buyers from across the Middle East and North Africa (Mena) region, including distributors, retailers, exporters, importers, contractors, fabricators, consultants and industry professionals involved in the construction and industrial sectors.
The 17th edition will feature country pavilions from China, Thailand and Taiwan, and will host more than 200 exhibitors from 11 countries representing over 300 brands, it added. – TradeArabia News Service
