Strap Hinges

Strap hinges are the sturdiest of period styles and can range in lengths from 8” to 48” and larger. Usually spanning 1/2 to 2/3 of a door's width, our strap hinges reflect the best characteristics of craftsmanship and design from the 18th century. The surface of each hinge is fully worked and deep beveling is painstakingly hammered into each edge.
(Please specify “Bean”, “Arrow-Head”, “Ball & Spear” or "Heart” finial end).

Pintle Styles

We hand-forge 3 pintle styles to work with any jamb detail. 18th century door framing usually provided a hardwood post into which a drive pintle would be mounted. These pintles can be used with modern framing as well. We also make the (I) “Jamb Mounted” and (J) “Plate Mounted” pintles, which the installer may find more workable for certain applications. The pin sizes are 1/2” dia. for 30” and 24” straps, 3/8” dia. for 18” and 12” straps. (Please specify right or left handing when ordering “Jamb Mounted” pintle).

If you are working on a project such as a barn, gate or large entrance door, we can hand-forge any size hinge needed. In addition we can provide special offsets and pintles designed specifically for your job. Please call to discuss your requirements.

Mounting instructions are included with your order and please call for technical assistance if needed. We are here to help!

Strap Hinge & Pintle Mounting Details

1) The “Jamb Mounted” pintle is mounted into a mortise on the face of the jamb.

2) The “Plate Mounted” pintle is surface mounted on the door casing and straps are furnished with an “Offset” to position door flush with casing.

3) The “Drive” pintle is installed at a 20° angle into the framing behind the casing. For modern framing with
 2 x 4’s, the pintle intersects both studs.
