To keep the shutters open. You can use long hooks or shutter dogs (some call them tiebacks). What’s right? Whatever works with your installation and makes you happy. Sometimes sill mounts with shutter dogs work – like if you have a random stone exterior. Clapboards almost always require plate mounts to insure you get into sound structural material to secure the dogs and shutters. Long hooks are a great option but they require a pretty substantial sill to anchor them. I chose tiebacks for this example because they’re most typical and they give you visual options in dressing up your shutters and the exterior of your home. I went with our #805 Belmont because it’s a nice looking form with early historic roots and it’s not the typical “S” shape you can find in a hardware store. Where on the shutter does the shutter dog go? Historic examples show dogs mounted across the full bottom edge of the shutter, or at the outside of the shutter about mid-point – just depends on the installation and what works. Typically the dogs are located from ? to 2/3 of the way across the bottom of the shutter. With lag screws as we used, location of studs has a lot to do with where. The real critical dimension is how far below the edge of the shutters the dogs are installed. They must be high enough to firmly engage the shutters in the open position, but low enough for the shutter to clear the tieback when it is rotated to the horizontal position to allow the shutter to be swung closed.

We’ve assembled the Brandywine Forge lag screw installation kit with the shutter dog. The Brandywine lag kit includes our unique polyurethane “stand-off” sleeve. The sleeve covers the lag threads on the back of the dog and presses against the back of the dog and the structure as the lag is screwed in. The stand-off tube is compressible, so you can crank down until the dog is resting against the face of the shutter to eliminate rattle. Each shutter can be installed so it rests against the structure, compensating for differences in the wall to which the shutter is installed.
