822 Series Plate Mount
This style of tie-back mount is very prominently exhibited at Colonial Williamsburg. It was typically seen on structures of clapboard construction.
Our plate mounts are fabricated of plate steel and exhibit our standard 1 ¾” stand-off from the structure. Other dimensions are available, or you can modify the elements during installation to customize the fit between shutter and structure.
826 Series Drive Mount
We provide a ½” x ¼” post of five inch overall length. One end is tapered as was often seen on early examples while the other end of the rectangular bar is forged down to a round. The round portion fits through a hole in the tie-back and is heated red-hot then hammered to produce a “rivet head” on the mount – it can’t be removed from the tie-back. The result is an installed tie-back that’s indistinguishable from the originals.
