View All Clavos

Clavos, large, decorative nailhead are also referred to as door studs, rustic nail heads, decorative nails and faux bolt heads. These fasteners are named from a Spanish word meaning nail and have many decorative uses. Clavos or decorative nail heads are frequently used as adornments to doors, cabinets, furniture, and gates. These nail heads can also be applied to wood beams as faux bolt heads to create the look of large, old fashion bolt heads. Our rustic clavos have a thick, sturdy nail allowing them to be used in nearly any wood application. This nail style makes them slightly different than furniture tacks or upholstery tacks, which have a very thin, lightweight nail. The clavos in Old West Iron’s hardware line are made of hand-forged iron, cast iron, solid bronze, or solid copper. Our designer approved, high-quality clavos are the perfect addition to any project. We offer many hand-painted patina finishes that are rust preventative to fit any taste or design style. Our colors include but are not limited to black, oil rubbed bronze, wrought iron patina, rusty metal, aged pewter, gunmetal, and raw unfinished metal.
