Bridgeport Hardware Manufacturing Corporation was founded in 1895 by Willis F. Hobbs in Bridgeport, Connecticut. The tools were frequently marked with the company's initials BHM, sometimes in a stylized BHM-Logo. They also used a number of unregistered brands for its products, including "Matchless", "Hy-Bar", “Sure Grip”, “Radio-Lectric.” In the early 1960s Bridgeport Hardware was acquired by Crescent Niagara. This fully illustrated catalog includes awls, box chisels, box openers, box scrapers, can openers, hammers, hatchets, ice picks, nail pullers, pliers, putty knives, saws, screwdrivers, tire tools, trowels, and more!
