1st Generation Locksmith

My family trade started 75 years ago with my grandfather. He entered the Army at age 19 and wanted to learn a skilled trade. Fortunately, my grandfather was assigned to the security field, something he knew little about. He was intrigued by the hows and whys of the security trade.

After many hours of studying and training about locks and security, he rose through the ranks to become a Sergeant Major (SGM) of the Army. His role was to open German safes and security containers, gathering information essential for the U.S. to win the war. Soon after the war, SGM L.T. Caldwell made a new home in Denver, CO. He did a little gold mining before he decided to establish Caldwell Lock and Key.

2nd and 3rd Generation Locksmiths

My father soon followed my grandfather's passion for the locksmith profession, which led him to start his own locksmith business in Arkansas. After my grandfather sold his business in Colorado, he moved to Arkansas to assist my father in running the family's second locksmith business.

Watching my father as I was growing up, I also became interested in the locksmith profession. When I started, I took locks apart because I was curious about how they all work and how different they are from one other. Soon after, I decided to carry on our family's legacy. Being a professional locksmith in the lock, safety, and security trade is something that I am proud of.

4th Generation Locksmith

My son Jerry, the 4th generation Caldwell, is now a big part of our company's success. He learned about the locksmith business at an early age. Him being born and growing up in a technological era helps in enriching his knowledge about the safe and lock industry.
