I personally spoke with 3 high volume stores in Houston who carry this Ultimate Lock product and they said that they haven't sold any in months. In fact when you go to the lock departments, they are hard to even find on the shelves and when you do they have dust on them. But when you think about it, you can buy them on Amazon or Craigslist for 119 or 109 so why would any rational person pay Lowes 175.00 each for the same product especially when you really buy them in pairs for 2 doors as a rule.
Something is going on between the owner Ron Daniels and Lowes store management. I hear that they are tied together by this Masonic relationship that keeps him in the Stores. Free Masons are bound by this thing that protects him from senior management in North Carolina. ALSO, By being in Lowes Stores he can leverage this claim to get more investor money to squander on his lavish lifestyle. [continued below]....
..... So is Lowes now responsible for feeding his greed and who is being greased at Lowes to push this worthless product? You can also buy a similar product that does basically the same thing for 39.95!
This investigation will continue until we find out if Lowes is in on this scheme to defraud the public by keeping this creep in their stores and on his shelves as a front. Lowes corporate knows that these locks dont sell at the highest price point in their lock Dept but they keep expanding his footprint in their stores? According to Daniels he's in at least 150 stores. As long as people believe that he's in solid with Lowes they will keep feeding his need for greed and dump money into this lock which only ends up in his and his wife's pocket.
