CATEGORY: architecture / general terms
 
A gate bar. A heavy piece of timber or iron used to affix a plank door to its structure. The kannuki is slipped through cleats, kannukikasugai 閂鎹 or kannukimochi kanamono 閂持鉄物, which are attached to vertical stiles, kannukitatezan 閂竪桟, and/or to one vertical stile and an additional vertical member called kannukizuri tatezan 閂摺竪桟, which are attached in turn to the upper and lower crosspieces. When a light door or gate is used, the kannuki cleats that are slipped through and secured to a vertical stile and to a horizontal member are called kannukimochizan 閂持桟.
