Cremone Bolt Hardware for our French Doors

For our French Doors we decided to use a Cremone Bolt
A Cremone Bolt is an Antique or Old Fashioned Style knob with locks that insert in the floor and above the door.
I Found two styles that we liked one from Van Dyke's Restorers and the other from Baldwin
The price of the Restorers made that win! Due to the fact we needed two.

Van Dyke’s Restorers
We just purchased this Bolt for $126 each and received a promo code at the check out to save $50


Often used on double door sets, cremone bolts allow the user to activate two separate locks at the top and bottom of doors with one handle. Some buyers use a set on one door of a pair and a slide bolt lock on the other, while others prefer to install cremone hardware on both doors-the choice is yours. Sets include two bolt rods which each measure 53 1/2" L x 5/8" W x 3/16" D. Fits doors up to 9 feet tall, and can be cut to shorter lengths. View Installation Instructions.
