Frank Best was the innovator of the first master keying system. As the Head of the Manual Training department at a Washington State high school, he had to carry around hundreds of keys for the doors of the school. If someone lost a key, he had to rekey the lock. He knew there had to be an easier way to address the problem. This is when he invented the interchangeable core lock, which is still being used 100 years after he developed it. Today, BEST brand locks are known for its craftsmanship and performance.
