Heavy Shutter Pintles

The pintles attach to the structure and provide a pivot point on which the hinges swing. All of our heavy pintles are fitted with 1/2 ” diameter pins that mate with our heavy strap hinges. We offer a wide range of pintles to address as many installation situations as possible.

Our goal is always to provide hardware that is easy to install. Pintles are the key to an easy installation that works with your construction. Too often I’ve seen beautiful moldings that have been butchered to accept cheap hardware, or original windows nearly destroyed in removing the original pintles. That’s a lot of time, effort, and money spent only to destroy the integrity of the structure. Selecting the new pintle which works easily with the structure is a major consideration in planning any shutter installation. We have many hinges that work with existing original pintles.

Please call us early in the process – we can save you time, money, and aggravation with a little up-front input.

Heavy Shutter Pintles > 300 - Timber Drive Pintles

A metal bar wrapped around a pin, welded and forged to a really big nail. The earliest pintles were designed to be slugged into heavy hewn timber frame construction.

They’re really strong and absolutely original in appearance, but they take a lot of wood to handle them.

Not recommended for anything less than a 4x4 and even that may be subject to splitting.

Heavy Shutter Pintles > 301 - Frame Drive Pintle

Same 1/2 ” pintle pin as the 300 pintle, but with less meat in the drive body.

It’s suitable for lighter frame construction but a bit tricky to install and only suggested if you really want the look of the originals.

Heavy Shutter Pintles > 302 - Plate Pintle

shutter pintlePlate pintles appeared with the advent of readily available rolled plate iron, say the early 1800’s.

They work well with frame construction and examples can be found from then through now.

The rectangular plate is probably the most commonly used pintle with strap and other hinge forms.

The plate is 1-1/2” wide by 3-3/4” tall for a 1-1/2” width hinge. Add 1/2 ” to the height for a 2” wide hinge.

Heavy Shutter Pintles > 303 - Narrow Plate Pintle

shutter pintleMany installations don’t have sufficient wood on the casing to accept the tradition 1-1/2” width of the plate pintle.

We make this narrow variant that’s only 1” wide by 4” tall. This pintle often fits narrow casings and custom moldings without touching the millwork.

It is often used when the pintle will fasten into masonry - the two fasteners require far less drilling and installation time than four.

Heavy Shutter Pintles > 304 - Offset Narrow Pintle

This is a specialty pintle that is designed to allow the hinge pin to sit off-center relative to the pintle plate.

It is useful where a narrow section of casing is available to mount the pintle, but the shutters need to swing on an axis other than the mid-point of the casing.

Call us, we’ll let you know if you need to consider this.

Heavy Shutter Pintles > 305 - Jamb Leaf Pintle

shutter jamb leaf pintleThis pintle is designed to mortise into a door jamb or window pocket to provide a nearly flush pin position.

It works rather like a standard mortised door hinge, but accepts our heavy strap hinge.

The result is a very clean looking installation.

Heavy Shutter Pintles > 306 - Lag Pintles

shutter lag pintleA heavy lag screw with 1/2 ” diameter shank and welded 1/2 ” hinge pin.

These pintles have a very nice finished appearance which looks quite similar to the original drive pintles when installed.

We make these pintles in a 4 and 6” screw length so you can adjust the pintle standoff on site.

Several customers have reported good results with drilling a 1/2 ” diameter hole in wood or masonry, coating the threads with an appropriate adhesive, then tapping the pintle into the desired depth.

Heavy Shutter Pintles > 307 - Notched Female Pintle

shutter notched pintleThis pintle is designed to mate with our notched male hinges.

The pintle accepts a 1/2 ” diameter pin and is available in 1-1/2” and 2” widths. The standard length of the pintle plate is 5”.

This is a great choice for masonry installations, and particularly where the window sits four or more inches inside of the face of the structure.

It’s easy to install, and can be configured so that the shutter lays nearly flat against the building with the pintle plate hidden behind the open shutter. This is a good option to discuss with us.

Heavy Shutter Pintles > 309 - Female TEE Pintle

shutter female tee pintleOne of our customers requested this style of pintle to allow female hinges to be installed on narrow flush casings.

It’s nice because it doesn’t require a large mounting surface to accept the width of the 307 and it’s not right or left hand specific.
