Brandywine Forge Side Mount / Offset Shutter Dogs

Side-Mount shutter dogs were not uncommon on historic installations. Brandywine Forge Side Mount / Offset Shutter Dogs provide a means to hold the shutter open by mounting at the side of the shutter rather than the bottom. They were often used on shuttered doors. The shutters ran the full height of the door and down close to the porch deck which left little to no room under the shutter, these side mount dogs mounted at the mid-height and resolved the height under issue.

The same issue is found on some second story shutters - a pent roof would often run right to the bottom of the shutters. Again, just move the tie-backs to the sides!

About Brandywine Forge

Brandywine Forge - USA Made Barn, Door & Shutter Hardware

American blacksmiths making the finest exterior barn, door & shutter hardware. Located in historic Chester County, PA., we're blacksmiths with decades of experience reproducing hardware in the manner of the originals.

Our hand forged hardware is inspired by the best original examples from American homes. All of our hardware is based on historic examples that have stood the test of time... we've seen what works, and we've seen a lot of hardware that has failed.

Brandywine Forge Hardware represents good value. Pick up any piece of Brandywine Forge hardware and the weight tells the story - for strength and durability there's no substitute for starting with heavy material. Rust isn't rustic so all of our hardware is protected with the same semi-gloss black automotive finish that's used to protect under-car parts like motor skid plates and trailer hitches.
