The straps shown here are "dummy straps". A decorative option with period sensibilities, dummy hinges are not functioning hinges. They provide the beauty of a strap hinge on doors that are already hinged or don't need hinges, such as overhead garage doors. Add a beautiful period look to your door without removing existing fixtures with these ornamental dummy strap hinges. An old-fashioned, wrought-iron style comes with a choice of three distinct shapes: heart, bean, and ball and spear.
