    Ah! a new term for my “door furniture” and related hardware vocabulary. :)

    Lovely, Susana, I like that the only color comes from a bit of rust.

  • Ah, yes! These hooks hold open the shuttered doors in the tropics. All the little shops have them… have you seen them in your travels elsewhere?

    Stunningly simple Susana.

  • Thank you, Gary. I wish I’d taken more this year but it seems like I spent my whole time with a camera in my hand as it was! There is never enough time to capture it all!!

    The most similar I’ve seen was on the inside of my (maternal) grandmother’s back door. :) To close the door when it wasn’t locked for the night. I believe hooks like these are used all over the world – it’s just that I’ve been searching myself silly to find the English names for all the stuff on my “Door furniture” image! (I have the same problem with describing bike parts and accessories, so I’m keeping bookmarks of terminology I do find…)

  • Very cool! We have them here on screen doors, to keep the kids out once we get them outside! Ha!! The old joke: “I’ve completely childproofed my house… but they keep getting back in!” :-D
