Crocker produced good quality pens and its the filling system was effective, even if it was somewhat uncomfortable to use; so soon it was replaced by the so-called hatchet filler, a loading system realized using a lever attached to the back of the pen, made in this way to circumvent Sheaffer patents. Seth Crocker left the business in 1920 and his son, Seth Crocker Chilton took over the conduct of the company that was moved from Boston to New York.
