About The Design

This Rat Tail Style Shutter Slide Bolt is patterned after a unique example of the earliest sliding shutter bolts. This bolt is based on a hand forged bolt shown in the late Donald Streeter's catalogue. He owned the original, which was made of hand-hammered plate, and dated it to the 1750's.

Is it spring loaded?

We have never seen an original shutter lock with springs to hold it open or closed. While common on interior applications, it is physically impossible to weather proof a spring-loaded lock - they will rust quite quickly. Always. Therefore, staying true to historical reproductions, these shutter locks will never be spring loaded.

Can these be painted?

Yes, if you read below, the preventative rust process creates a good base for rustoleum paints. Another reason we like our bolt fabrication so much is the bolt itself can be easily removed (another reason we don't spring-load) to allow for 100% paint coverage.

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.

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.
