Traditional rustic door bolt with elaborate rat or monkey tail handle detailing and predrilled base plate.  This authentic vintage wrought iron privacy bolt is 6 inches in length and straight as opposed to cranked.  This makes it more suited to bolting flush surfaces.  See our cranked bolts if your surfaces don’t quite line up.  An effective little black bolt for adding a vintage feel to cupboards, toilet doors, etc.

The base plate for the rustic door bolt measures 15 cm x 5.5 cm.  The bolt itself is 17 cm long and 1.5 cm wide, and the decorative antique, curled tail has a maximum depth of 4cm.

Our traditional wrought iron door bolts are all individually hand forged, so they are similar but not identical.  Each cottage 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.

These bolts are individually made in the traditional way by artisan blacksmiths using the hammer and anvil.  The cottage bolts will show forge markings.  Once complete, the bolts are cleaned and polished then coated in a layer of natural beeswax.  The beeswax has two functions. Firstly, it coats the bolt and helps to protect it from excessive rusting.  Secondly, the wax will give the wrought iron a more uniform colour.

Before fitting this item, we recommend that you would first either drill a pilot hole or use a bradawl to begin your holes.  The reason for this is that by making a starter hole first you will be able to drive your screws in straight.  The screw heads will fit nice and flush on the bolt’s base plate.

When your package arrives, you will receive the correct number of fixing screws to enable you to mount the bolt correctly.  These will be traditional screws in black with a domed head and slotted.

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.
