Black door bolt 4 Inch

Our traditional black door bolt.  This rustic Black Slide Bolt Cranked plain slide bolt has elaborate rat/monkey tail handle detailing and pre-drilled base plate.  This authentic wrought iron privacy lock is 4 inches in length and cranked.  The vintage cranked bolt shaft means that it is more forgiving when bolting doors and door frames that don’t quite line up.  An effective little black bolt for adding a vintage feel to old cupboards, toilet doors, etc.

The base plate measures 9cm by 4cm.  The antique bolt itself is 14cm long and the decorative traditional rat/monkey tail is a maximum of 3cm 2deep. T he cottage cranked end is 1.5cm deep and 3cm long.

Our wrought iron door bolts are all individually hand forged, so they are similar but not identical.  Each piece is hand finished and given a beeswax coating.  All our hand-forged products are carefully aged.  Once installed these products will look old and authentic.


This traditional black door bolt has been hand forged. The bolts are hand forged on the anvil in the traditional manner.  Our chosen blacksmiths are highly trained artisans who have a passion for their work and the ability to produce quality items.  As the bolts are handmade, they will be similar but will not be identical.  Forging marks will be seen on the bolts.


The traditional black door bolt is hand finished.  Once the bolt has been completed, it is hand cleaned and polished and is then treated with beeswax.  The beeswax is an old and traditional way of treating wrought iron.  The wax forms a moisture barrier on the bolt that helps to prevent excessive rusting.

A full set of fixing screws will be included with your order.

You will notice in the picture there is an Allen Key. This is unique to us it enables you to put the bolt in any orientation. You adjust with the Allen Key to your desired position.
