About The Hooks

Early Example of Shutter Hook Hold Open

These heavy shutter hooks don't really lock the shutters, they're used to hold them in the open position. Hand forged from 3/8" dia. steel bar with sturdy drive staples to attach the hooks. They're also often used to hold Bermuda style shutters open.

One advantage of shutter hooks over tiebacks is that they're easily engaged and disengaged (you don't have to lean out of the window to release the shutters as with tiebacks) as the shutter is opened and closed.

This style of shutter hook is very common on farm houses throughout eastern Pennsylvania and elsewhere and were originally produced by local smiths. An arc scratched into the surface of the building (or door for smaller hooks) below the attachment point for the hooks is lasting evidence of their use. The hooks hang from the sill when the shutters are closed and, over time, the points scratch an arc into the face of the structure. Such scribed arcs are proof that hooks were used and show both their length and attachment point on the window sill.

Most items ship within 10-15 business days. However, due to the handmade nature of this item, a 8-10 business week lead time may be required before shipment for orders requiring fabrication (End of year lead time is 10-12 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.
