Functional shutters were necessary appointments on early homes; providing security, protection from storms and sun, and privacy to the homeowner. Regardless of the period, location, size or style of the shutters, they required hardware to stay open when not in use and to swing closed and lock in that position when required.

All hinges, pintles, and tiebacks are priced by the pair. "Unpainted” indicates the unpainted price, “painted” indicates the pieces are finished with “e-coat”. Painted pieces are individually packaged, unpainted hardware is shipped bulk. Unpainted hardware offers you the option to apply a custom finish or you can just save some serious money by painting yourself - instructions included with all unpainted hardware.

We have learned that considering shutters and hardware as an integrated package as early as possible in the planning process is the best approach. There are a number of dimensions and a bunch of terms involved and it’s easy to feel confused at first. We encourage you to call us to discuss your installation needs and share our expertise to define the solution that best fits your situation. We design and make our hardware to install as simply as possible. Savings on installation costs often more than make up the price difference for higher quality hardware. A contemporary automotive finish process protects all of our shutter hardware from the elements.

Functional shutters need to swing from parallel to the face of the house to parallel with the window. “Pintles” are attached to the structure and provide the pins on which the hinges swing. Hinges fasten to the shutters and drop onto the pintle pins. Shutter hinges and pintle are typically designed to allow the shutter & hinges to be lifted from the structure & pintles for maintenance. Shutter “tie-backs” are fastened to the building and positioned to hold the shutter in the open position. The shutter lock holds the pair of shutters together in the closed position.
