HANDLE END CAPS
Handle end caps for antique trunksHardware for steamer trunk handles for sale
These go over the ends of your new handles, made of stamped steel that has not been coated with anything
other than a little machine oil to keep them from rusting.  Sized to fit over handles that are 1.25 inch wide; a very common size.
We sell these in sets of four for $10, delivered to your door.  These are reproductions of the most common trunk handle end cap
in the history of the planet.  These do not have pins - just nail your handles to the trunk, then nail these over the ends of the handles.
May be used with handles that have slots or unslotted handles - it doesn't matter.
When these are nailed onto your trunk the overall dimensions are 2-5/16" from top to bottom and 2-1/8" wide.
TEC01  $10 per set, USA shipping included

FISH SCALE END CAPS - ANTIQUE FINISH
Vintage trunk hardware, handle covers
Modern reproductions of the popular fish scale end caps that were used on many trunks in the mid to late 1800s.
These are simply used to cover the end of a leather trunk handle.  They'll fit over handles anywhere between 1' and 1-1/4" wide.
They're made of stamped steel and have a durable powder coated antiqued bronze finish.
You can paint them if you get the notion - that's up to you - but they look nice just the way they are.

BRASS OR ANTIQUE BRASS HANDLE END CAPS

brass trunk handle hardwareReplacement hardware for steamer trunks
Made to fit our standard trunk handles, or any handle that's 1.25" wide.  These should be used with handles
that have slots in them in order to allow the handle to slide back and forth in the bracket.  This allows the handle to
lay flat against the side of the trunk when not in use.  TEC-02 are available in brass-plated steel or antique brass plated steel and
are sold in sets of four for $12, USA shipping included.  We throw in four 1.5" brass nails that are intended to go through the
center opening, then through the slot in the handle.  Again - these end caps come with the 4 center pin nails ONLY.  If you need more nails to
attach these to your trunk please visit our Trunk Nails page.  One more time - each set contains four end caps and four brass plated 1.5" nails.

WITH PINS
Vintage and antique trunk handle hardwareHardware for trunk handles

and the slots allow the handle to lay flat against the trunk when not in use.  Slick.

Sized to fit handles that are 1.25" wide

Leather Handle Loops
Louis Vuitton style leather handle holdersLeather strap holders for old trunks
We make these ourselves right here in the shop.  We wet form some very good quality harness leather in a
press that we built from scratch.  This style of handle bracket or loop is commonly seen on trunks made in France a long time ago.
You know the guy.  These do a pretty good job of imitating the originals, and we make them in tan, brown, and black (not shown).
Nail them on - nails are NOT included.  These have the dimensions shown above, and are 1-5/16" (33mm) wide.

These giant d-rings sets are reported by the maker to have a breaking strength of 700 pounds, but a working load of 200 pounds.
Each set contains what you see in the pictures (except the quarter)(isn't it weird we have to point that out so that we don't get sued
by someone who really just wanted the quarter?).  Overall dimensions of each ring/bracket pair is 1-7/8" by 1-7/16".  No mounting
fasteners are included - you need to supply your own.  Our Binder Posts/Chicago Screws work well (over on the Nails page), or use your own bolts.
