Has anyone seen this type of window hardware/opener before?


It seems that over the years, this old handle has seen better says. It does not shut tight anymore. Is there a way to adjust it tighter? The window is fine and I dont want to replace it just because of the handle.

How does the handle capture the window? Does the window or any of the hardware have a name on it?

Go to www.blainewindow.com

That is a Truth casement operator.

May be best to call them and they can walk you through the info to make sure you get the right parts.

from the pics, it almost looks like the frame is warped and the pane is cracked?

OH WOW...I saw that in the picture and went and looked. It was a drop of water running down the window on the outside and reflecting sunlight. No the window or frame is not warped.

Nice huh...We teach our children to not lie than hook them up with laptops that have photoshop, chatrooms and a dozen websites ready to write theyre midterms for them...I had to write my own @#$%$ midterm!..lol

Anyway...that drop of water and that ray of sun is a WELCOME site for someone enduring Alaska's 7 month winter with 4 months of darknes and -30 deg. f.

Drip water...drip away!!!...lol

I got an autoresponse email this morning from Blaine Hardware that said they will contact me in a few days....

On their website is a very detailed set of drawings. You should be able to compare the drawings with your current existing hardware and figure out if it's only a part that's needed and not the whole mechanism.
You could probably just compare it to another window that closes properly.
