Lock Installation - Custom Wood Gates - Steel Gates

Santa Monica, Los Angeles, Brentwood, Venice, Marina Del Rey


Our commitment is to provide clarity for all.

Our intention - This entire gate installation process will go as smoothly as possible.

To assure that it is smooth, we require some assistance on the client's end.  

The Clients' prompt decision on this is the #1 priority. - Thank you.


  1. The client is responsible for the purchase of Locks, Lock Boxes and Installation. (see below)

  2. The Goal - (without acquiring additional fees) - to get this decision accomplished - within 7 days of us receiving the deposit.

  3. NOTE: We DO NOT install the actual locks - (A Locksmith is required for this - see below)  

NOTE: WE DO Install the Lock Box! (After, client purchases)

WHAT IS A LOCK BOX? - the steel housing around the locks, that we weld into our frames.

LOCK BOX EXAMPLES - See More Info Below


For the fastest and easiest for everyone,



OPTION 1: Standard Deadbolt, Doorknob or Both

NOTE: (if you choose this option, you do not have to order the lockbox. We provide the lockbox on this option only)

If you would like the locks to be inset (seen here), then you must choose a lock with the circular housing.

OPTION 3: Decorative Locks

If you do not want the locks inset and you want a more decorative lock,

These are a few choices that we offer. - On display at the locksmith showroom.

This style of lock requires a different style of wood installation. - Please see the images below these locks.

OPTION 3: Installation requirements

In these 3 photos, we cut a square around the locks, then trim around it. Still looks great!

This is the only way to use these decorative lock options.


NOTE: We DO NOT install the actual locks

OPTION 4 - Keyless Entry Locks

This is the one electronic lock that we offer.

It requires a special lock box as you can see here. This lock box has a longer body to accommodate this type of lock.

Other Keyless locks, or maybe, some "smart" locks will fit this same lock box.

You must call Advance Lock and Key, or stop by to speak with them to see if you lock choice (other than anything that you see here) will work.

All we need is any steel lockbox to weld into our steel gate frame. 

NOTE: We DO NOT install the actual locks


It is great for exterior because of the heavy duty structure. - REQUIRES A SIMPLE "SINGLE LOCKBOX"

  • No key from the front
  • Manual opening from the inside

NOTE: We DO NOT install the actual locks

We are very fortunate to have a partner in this lock installation process.


The gentlemen at Advance Lock and Key help us once the wooden gates are installed. 

Once the Harwell build team is complete with our custom gate installation, the very professional locksmiths will take over the final process.

We wish that we could install any lock that you could think of,

but because these locks are going to outside, so there is only a few that we actually offer. These are some great choices and we have taken our time to select the best options for what we do. You do not want to try and install something to out of the ordinary on these gates.

You can stop by the locksmith's showroom and see these locks on display when you are making your decision.

If you are looking for a smart lock? - Please call David at Advance Lock and Key - (310) 306-8248

There may be a way to figure out the new smart locks, but that conversation is strictly for the locksmith.

Please let them know that the guys at Harwell referred you.


Thank you so much for your collaboration. 

We are committed to having the building experience be

a smooth and easy process for everyone.

Please make one of these choices on this page, otherwise it makes the entire process much more difficult.
