Just what I was looking for.
Changing review after install... proper install requires drilled lag bolts, cotter pins and washers.
well made--heavy metal--these are not the light weight aluminum ones.
They were exactly as discribed and they look great.
The shutter dogs themselves are really nice - appropriate size, nice weight, and textured powder coat finish. Unfortunately, the lag bolts supplied are useless, especially when mounting the things on a masonry brick wall. The lag bolts have wood-screw threads, and, therefore, cannot be used securely in a mortar joint. Also, despite the item description, the shutter dogs are not pure cast iron. I concluded that when I found that a magnet would not stick to them. Apparently, some alloy is added in the casting process, or perhaps that they are simply cast aluminum.When mounting on brick, mounting holes must be drilled into mortar joints with a masonry bit. Most mortar joints are 1/4 inch, so that will limit the size of the drilled hole. Concrete anchors (lead or plastic) must then be tapped into the holes, and #10 or #12 screws should then be used to attach the shutter dogs to the wall. Note that a washer will need to be placed beneath each screw head. Also, some sort of hardware must be used behind the shutter dog itself to hold the entire assembly together in order to avoid it being loose and floppy. In my case, I threaded on a nylon faucet washer, backed by a nylon hex nut. At that point, I screwed the whole assembly into the anchor fitting, and it works like a charm.Considering the useless lag bolts, this item is seriously overpriced. But, having said that, it is still the best option I could find for my application.
