After becoming frustrated by the existing coolant hose products on the market; all of which suffered from a variety of shortcomings, Arnold Lockwood conceived the idea for the modular hose that became Loc-Line®. The shortcomings of the existing products included, metal coolant hoses that would not stay where they were positioned and plastic hoses with metal positioning rods that broke. In 1981 Lockwood Products was formed to develop and distribute Loc-Line®. The first products were shipped in August of 1983. Loc-Line® quickly became the standard for coolant delivery around the world and is easily recognized by their blue and orange colors and consistent high quality.
