OBITUARY Jack Kerr September 21, 1930 - December 3, 2016 Jack started in the fastener industry in the early 1960’s at Dallas Bolt Nut and Screw as an outside salesman in Dallas, Tx. In the late 1960’s Jack started manufacturing center lock type locknuts out of his garage in the evenings under the Hex- Loc, Inc. name. In the early 1970’s Jack set out on his own full time and moved into a permanent location in Dallas. Through the 1970’s Jack increased his production capacity and had 5 employees working for him. During this time he was only manufacturing the center lock lock nuts. In the early 1980’s Jack took on additional investors and changed the name to Lok-Mor, Inc. With the additional resources Jack was able to start manufacturing a wider range of locknuts. Through the 8o’s he was able to develop the required machinery and tooling to run top locks, free spinning lock nuts, oval locks, Anco Pn-Locs as well as increase production on the center lock line. As a result the company grew quickly through the 1980’s and 1990’s and gave Jack the opportunities to increase the range of products he manufactured. Today Lok-Mor, Inc. manufactures 20 plus styles of locknuts and now includes a machine shop capable of producing internally and externally threaded specials.
