Each antique cabin hook is 25.5 cm long and is 0.7 cm in diameter. The vintage fixing pin is 6 cm long meaning it will fix securely and not easily slip out of the black eye.
Our cabin hooks or door hooks are handcrafted so although similar, will not be identical. Each old vintage antique cabin hook is finished with a black oil coating in the old traditional manner. As with all our antique products they are traditional and unique to us and we hope you will enjoy them.
These cottage type hooks are hand made by artisan blacksmiths in the traditional way on the anvil. The blacksmiths that produce these are very enthusiastic about the vintage hooks they produce. This will show in the quality of the product when you receive it.
The hook will arrive with all the parts you will need to correctly install it. You will have the correct amount of antique screws. These traditional screws will be black with slotted heads .The screw heads will be vintage domed.
We would advise you to make a pilot hole first before you fit the hook. The pilot hole can be made with either a bradawl or a small drill. The reason for this is that by making starter holes you will be able to drive the screw in straight. this will give you a firm fixing and the screw heads will finish flush to the fixing plates.
