Dummy gate straps are non-functional, ornamental hardware. Add them to butt hinges to instantly add old world charm to doors, gates, sheds, shutters, and more. HardwareSource carries one of the largest collections of dummy straps. We offer designs in heart, bean, spade shapes and more, in smooth or rough iron finishes. We also have fanciful designs such as fleur de lis. Lengths on these decorative dummy straps range from 6" to 36". We stock dummy straps in bronze, iron, resin, steel, and aluminum material. Also available are solid bronze dummy straps which can withstand harsh climates and have a beautiful "living" finish.
