Traditional rustic plain black door bolt with curled under handle detailing and pre drilled base plate. This authentic wrought iron bolt is 6 inches in length and straight as opposed to cranked. This makes the black bolt more suited to bolting flush surfaces. See our old type cranked bolts if your surfaces don’t quite line up. An effective little antique bolt for adding a vintage feel to cupboards, toilet doors etc
The base plate for the bolt measures 15.5 cm x 5 cm. The bolt itself is 16.5 cm long.
Our wrought iron cottage black door bolts are all individually hand forged. They will be similar but not identical. Each rustic piece is hand finished and given a bees wax coating. All our hand forged products are carefully aged. Once installed these products will look old and authentic.
We have been lucky to find a small artisan blacksmith shop to make the black door bolt for us. The blacksmiths that make these are highly skilled but above that they are passionate about their work. You will be able to see this in the quality of the finished product. Once complete the bolts are again hand cleaned and polished. The bolts are then coated to protect them from excessive rusting and to give them a uniform colour.
When your parcel arrives you will find all the fittings you need included to enable you to install the bolt correctly. The correct amount of fixing screws will be in with the bolt. These screws will be antique style black slotted screws with a domed head.
When fitting the screws we would advise you make a pilot hole first. this hole can be made with either a drill or a bradawl. The reason for this is that by using the holes you have created you will be able to drive your screws in squarely to to bolt leaving the screw heads fitting flush to the bolts base plate.
