About The Design

The 701 series shutter strap hinge are representative of the best early work. We hammer out a hinge blank. Hammering the blank results in subtle curved lines rather than the harsh straight lines of a machine cut hinge.

We then hand forge beveled edges along the length of the hinge. The bevel spreads the width slightly and accentuates the un-straightness of the hinge. This results in shadow lines; which give three dimensionality and pulls your eye to the added care and detail of the original craftsman.

Notched Pin Series

A hinge and pintle of equal width can be notched at the mid-line where the barrel is applied. A pin is welded into the hinge barrel which mates with the female pintle. This results in a very nice installation where the hinge and pintle are of the same width - eliminating the need for room below the bottom hinge and the window sill for pintle mounting.

We've seen a few examples of this type of hinge and pintle dating from the early 1800's, but they became universally popular shortly after the civil war through the early 1900's.

With original installations you'll find the original pintles still intact on the building. They're female cups about 1" deep that protrude from between the structure and the edge of the window. Our notched hinges have an attached 1/2" diameter pin that mates with most of the original pintles. In any event, they're a very nice option that’s easy to install - one of our favorite approaches!

What is Standoff?

There are two schools of thought on a technical specification:

  • Hinge Standoff is the measurement from the hinge back to the middle of the hinge knuckle.
  • Pintle Standoff is the measurement from the plate back to the middle of the pintle barrel.
  • These two measurements when combined create the Offset
  • Other manufacturers and suppliers substitute standoff with offset. Either term aside, the hinge and pintle, when installed, combine to hang your open shutter clear of the window jamb and surface of the building.

Most items ship within 7-10 business days. However, due to the handmade nature of this item, a 6-8 business week lead time may be required before shipment for orders requiring fabrication (End of year lead time is 8-10 business weeks due to holiday delays and logistic congestion). We will clearly communicate any lead time requirements upon order processing or you may contact us for availability and estimated ship date.
