    Timothy, I don't know the source of your pdf but the section on Lockwood is fraught with errors:
    1. Lockwood was founded in South Norwalk, CT*
    2. Purchased by Independent Lock Co. in 1932 and moved to Fitchburg, MA*
    3. The Lockwood Hardware Mfg. Co. ceased operation in 1973*

    *Locks and Lockmakers of America, Revised 3rd Edition by the late Thomas F. Hennessy, pg. 62-63

    There is also an unrelated firm, Lockwood Australia; which is an ASSA ABLOY Group company.+
    Additionally, Lockwood1878; a subsidiary of Gulfport Industries, Inc., apparently acquired rights to the marque and sells import builders' hardware in North America under the Lockwood brand.+

    +my information which can be verified on the Internet

    Timothy, also note that Ilco still makes mortise, rim and key-in-knob cylinders in the 1004/L1 Lockwood keyway for extending existing systems. Readily available through locksmith distribution.

    the historical locks website is owned by Assa Abloy. Sounds like they need a history lesson!
