A number of manufacturers have annouced pricing updates before the end of 2018. Here are the latest changes that you should be aware of...
Arrow has announced on November 1, 2018, a new price list will go into effect for select Arrow Lock products. Arrow QL, MLX, RLX, RL, RK, and DBX products will not see a full increase, but will be rounded to the nearest whole dollar. All other products will see an overall average price increase of 3%.
Due to significant government tariffs on imported steel and aluminum, Allegion has announced a list price increase of 7 percent that will go into effect on December 1, 2018, and will impact a limited set of products lines:
Schlage Residential J Series*
Schlage Builders Hardware
LCN Aluminum Closers

Spectrum Brands will implement a tariff surcharge on all their affected product portfolios (Kwikset, Baldwin, National Hardware ). The surcharge is being applied to offset the tax that affects the entire supply chain. Prices will take effect November 5, 2018. Additional communications are forthcoming. Kwikset will have an additional weighted increase of 2% effective January 1, 2019.
