Annual Show

We feel that the show experience is an important part of collecting. If at all possible, attend a show, any lock show! They are all fun and educational. You will come away a better informed collector, and a good feeling about what is happening in the lock world.

The WEST COAST LOCK COLLECTORS SHOW takes place each year in February.
The Show location is near Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) for the
convenience of our out-of-town collectors.
The Show takes place on a Saturday, with dealer set-up Friday night.

Sales Tables: 6 ft. tables for sales and/or trade are $35.00. Have applications in early as we cannot guarantee any tables after January 15. Table covers and chairs will be provided. Tables are to remain open for business during show hours and are not to be dismantled until closing of show, 4 PM Saturday. If you must leave before close of show please indicate on application form. Tables or parts of tables cannot be sublet without consent. Show is limited to antique or collectible locks, keys, restraints, safes, strong boxes, old hardware and printed items relating to the hobby. No phony or reproduction items are to be on the tables for sale or trade. All decisions on this matter will be made by the Show Committee and considered final.

Displays: We encourage everyone to have displays, and to use as much educational information as possible. Awards given.

Hotel Reservations: Please check the Calendar section as we may arrange some special rates with hotels.

Show Security: We ask dealers to be at their tables during show hours. When show closes we suggest reasonable precautions be taken. It is a good idea to remove valuable items from the table and then cover table with paper or cloth covering. The club will not assume responsibility for any lost, broken or stolen items. We reserve the right to refuse admission to anyone.
