This Hand Forged Black Locking Monkey Tail Fastener is forged from steel. The skilled craftsmen are able to draw the steel to give it a beautiful sweeping tail detail than is not found on cast fasteners. Available in Beeswax or Black finishes.
These fasteners provide added security as they can be locked in to place by means of a small grub screw set in to the handle. This means that these fasteners are handed you need to choose between LEFT and RIGHT handed fasteners dependent upon which side of your window they need to be fixed. The photographs are taken showing the which direction the fasteners points please look at these carefully before ordering.
The Black is a traditional satin Black finish, baked in a high-temperature oven giving it an attractive, durable and corrosion-resistant finish. The finish is low maintenance when used internally, if used externally it will require more. In all cases we do recommend that it is wiped with a lightly oiled cloth periodically. This will help to remove surface dirt and restore it back to its original condition.
The Beeswax is the most authentic finish for steel. When the highly skilled blacksmiths have finished forging the colours left in the steel range from blue to deep red ochre. To preserve these beautiful colours and texture they are finished with just pure beeswax. Because of this they are only suitable for internal use. We recommend that wiping the hinges with beeswax from time to time will help protect and maintain the product. Some surface rust may occur with time, this can be treated with 00 grade wire wool followed by a light coating of beeswax.
Never use any form of metal cleaner or aerosol spray.
Supplied with matching fixings and key. The screws supplied are hand finished, so please take care when fixing. Always use a pilot drill.
