How do the logistic carriers’ new surcharges affect me?
The past 18 months have seen immense strain put on shipping, and that has translated into rising costs for freight. As a result, SECLOCK has been forced to re-examine our shipping policy.
SECLOCK has always provided free ground shipping* on orders above your pre-determined threshold. That won’t change. What will change is what items free shipping applies to.
Effective January 1st, 2022, free ground shipping will no longer apply to:
- Heavy, bulk items, such as, but not limited to, hinges, key machines, safes, automatic door operators and mop plates.
- “Large” or “long” items as defined by common carriers, such as, but not limited to, continuous hinges, mullions, and thresholds.
- heavy, bulk, and oversized items will be shipped via truck or common carrier, with the associated freight costs added to your invoice.
Please click on the links below to review the UPS definitions of what constitutes a large, long or heavy package and what the corresponding surcharges will include:

We understand that changes like these affect your business, and we apologize for that. If you have any questions at all, please reach out to our team of service representatives.
Thank you for your continued support as we navigate this unprecedented situation together.
*SECLOCK reserves the right to cancel, alter, or amend this policy at any time. Returned packages will incur a recovery fee; this fee will not exceed the original freight amount.
Your predetermined freight policy only applies to stocked items in orders shipped within the contiguous United States, excluding mullions, safes or other long, oversized or heavy stock requiring special handling, packaging or shipping.
