The hand forged fishtail door bolt is a design dating back to pre industrial revolution. The shaft of the bolt is a folded leaf spring design, this provides enough friction on the mechanism to allow the bolt to be positioned both vertically and horizontally. The pewter finish allows this bolt to be used in both internal and external applications. We have two sizes available 4 inch and 6 inch, and two styles straight and cranked. Generally the 4 inch is used on doors that require privacy, where as the 6 inch bolt is used to secure doors that open to the outside. Because these bolts are hand forged no two will be dimensionally identical. An alternative to the pewter finish is our collection of fish tail bolts in a black wax finish. To help you choose the correct size and style of door bolt we have put together a detailed product specification sheet, you will find this under the dimensions tab, here you will be able to download a PDF document detailing product dimensions.
