McGard's quality wheel locks and specialty security products are recognized worldwide. In 1966, Lew McCauley designed and patented a security nut to prevent theft of automobile rims and tires. From that idea, L. D. McCauley and McGard have become the world's leading manufacturer of mechanical anti-theft and anti-tampering devices. Highly engineered specialty products are manufactured to meet the needs of a broad range of customers, all of whom are seeking a security solution for their application. In addition to the McGard locks used extensively in the marine and automotive industries, the Special Products Division of McGard serves a wide cross section of industry and public service entities.
