Our selection of window shutter hardware is packed with accessories that can help you customize the design of your shutters and instantly increase your home's appearance. Some of the most classic accents you can possibly choose to decorate your shutters are shutter dogs. These unique pieces of hardware are designed to hold a shutter in the open position. Although shutter dogs serve a practical purpose, they are also quite decorative. We carry an assortment of ornamental shutter dogs to choose from, many of which are finely crafted in the classic scroll shape. We also offer shutter dogs shaped like rat tails, shells, grapes, flowers, and more. Many of the shutter dogs we carry are made of iron, which is beloved for its old-world look and charm. We also offer shutter dogs made of steel and solid bronze, both of which are resistant to corrosion and can hold up well in coastal areas or other corrosive environments.
In addition to shutter dogs, we offer an array of shutter hardware and accessories that can help improve your shutter's functionality. Whether you are looking for a hook and eye or a Bermuda stay to hold your shutters in place, we have all your needs covered. Most of the slide bolts we supply are made of either cast metal or forged steel, so they can stand the test of time. A decorative slide bolt can be used for shutters, gates, and much more. Each slide bolt features three different strikes to accommodate different installation methods, including surface, edge, and mortise. We also carry an assortment of ring pulls, latches, and anti-rattle clips for shutter dogs. If you have any questions about window shutter hardware, please feel free to contact us for additional information. We are also available to help via live chat while you shop!

Frameless cabinets are very common in Europe, but have steadily been making their way into America, as they lend themselves well to contemporary and modern designs.
