BARN DOOR HOOKS (and other barn locks)

Wentz hook

Large and small, hooks were easily fashioned by the local blacksmith and were common fare on early buildings.  The hooks would vary greatly in size depending on the door to be secured.  It’s not uncommon to see hooks designed to hold doors in both the open and closed positions.

Look for the tell-tale arc scribed into the wood or stone below the hook, it’s a sure indication that a hook was once used and tells you the hook length and where it was attached to the door or shutter.
