Paint brush Lock
This name was given to this mortice lock due to it looking like a paintbrush. It was easier to mortice the lock into the door due to less material on the lockcase.


A devastating fire destroyed Albert Hall and surrounding areas including William Harrold's workshop. The workshop was condemned and was demolished.

During the war, William was very busy doing work for the armed forces and the steel industry.


After the war ended, William's son Henry took over the company

Henry was a talented footballer and was assigned to Sheffield Wednesday's U12's, but William refused to let him go professional and wanted Henry to concentrate on the family business.

Henry married and had three sons -

 Terry, Norman and Gordon.


The company expanded into the seventies with six more family members, including the current management team of  Tony and Peter.

1980 - 2000

The company grew year-on-year and explored new products to sell.
