The name Allcock is spelled sometimes with and without an 'S'?
Are their hooks called 'Allcocks' as brandname while the company name is 'Allcock'?

Maybe it is just the misuse of possessive nouns. "S.Allcock and Co" is the name of the business thus their product should be "Allcock's".

Or it may be also distinctive label design. Just like billboards or signs that should tell who and what with a fleeting glance. All the packages have ALLCOCKS followed by small red script tapered turned down yes, followed by larger type, model perfect hooks. But at a quick glance you read, Allcocks there is no apostrophe.
