This Hand Forged Black Shepherds Crook Window Fastener is forged from steel. The skilled craftsmen are able to draw the steel whichgives a finer tail detail than is found on cast fasteners, providing a really beautiful piece of furniture. Available in Beeswax or Black finishes.
The fastener is reversible - not handed - so can be fitted to either the left or right hand side of the window. It is also suitable for use on windows with a draught seal.The Hand Forged Black Shepherds Crook Fastener comes with a Mortice Plate, for use with windows that have a central mullion. If your windows are flush, you will need to order the seperate Hook Plate.
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. The screws supplied are hand finished, so please take care when fixing. Always use a pilot drill.
