CUD Accessories
The finest key rings & Accessories.

CUD (Castle Union Developments of Leicester were throughout the 1950’s & 60’s the premier supplier of custom key fobs.

I first noticed this company as they were the supplier of the original Downton Key Fobs, I then noticed that the superb range of Alexander Gear Lever Knobs were actually supplied & manufactured by CUD.

Today many of their original key fobs command astronomical prices as the combination of great style, superb quality & rarity stands out.

Sadly CUD went into liquidation in the early 1070’s. Some of their old stock badges & equipment were bought by a Company called “Craftsman” who for a short time continued production which fizzled out some time shortly after.
