Shutter Locks > 620 – Heavy "Brandywine Barrel Bolt"

Our newly designed shutter barrel bolt.  Heavy 5/8” diameter forged barrel with our unique forged “lolly-pop” handle.  Bold outline adds visual interest and highlights the weight and strength of this lock.

Carpenters’ hall was finished in 1770, right across the street from Independence hall.  It hosted the first continental congress and was home to Ben Franklin’s first library.  The hall was a handy and frequent meeting place of our nation’s founders.

The bold shutter bolts appear original and are obviously designed specifically for the structure.  They were made with the newly available rolled plate iron and sized to fully span the shutters.  A unique and eye-catching hardware set that screams “Secured”!

We used the Carpenter Hall bolts as the starting point for some large door hardware we designed and made for a Jamaica cruise terminal.  The doors are 12’ tall and subject to 185 mph hurricane winds, so robust hardware was in order.  The horizontal bolt in the middle of the door below the rings is 3” tall by 28” wide.  The bolt itself is scaled up to ¾” in diameter and 24” long.

We incorporated the same bolt to make the head and foot bolts, with the head bolts nearly 4 feet in height.  I felt the form of the bolt was lost on the back plates while the head bolts were the most interesting. So we took this hardware and replaced the solid backplates the two simple bridges.  That not only showcases the strong and simple lines of the forged bolt and adds visual interest to the open shutters, but also brings the whole bolt set more into a style one would expect to come from an early blacksmith shop.
