Heavy and beautiful
This shopper rated the product 5 out of 5 stars

I bought 8 of these straps in the 18" size (powder coat) to dress up my two single garage doors. They are very heavy, and absolutely beautiful. I was concerned that the 18" might be too big for the doors, but they were perfect. I like that the shape of these straps is a little different--not clearly identified as Tuscan or Mediterranean or whatever. My house is at Lake Tahoe and so cedar and stone are the basic materials around here. The hammered finish is very nice. Because my new garage doors are metal (a bear ripped open my previous wood door) I used sheet metal screws to install these straps instead of the hardware that was included. I dabbed a little black paint on the screw heads so they don't stand out. I originally ordered Item 02019185 Forged Iron Pull to go with these straps. The straps are so nice that they made these particular handles look kind of cheap (big difference in thickness, and the pulls weren't hammered). It was easy to return the handles for something nicer-- I've chosen the 8 1/8 Inch Spade Pull Handle this time (a little more money) and I'm waiting for them to arrive and see if they are hefty enough to go with these awesome straps. Just an opinion about the finish: at my last house I bought straps from Van Dykes in the oil blackened finish. I didn't read the description very carefully, and those straps began to rust after a year or two. I took them off and spray painted them with Rustoleum, and they looked terrific 11 years later when we moved. If you want black, and you want them to stay black without maintenance, get the powder coat finish!
