Traditional wooden window sash locks
One of the most important and visible pieces of hardware you will install on your wooden sash windows are
sash locks. Sash locks serve two purposes. First, they provide security, keeping the sash windows closed,
foiling intruders. Secondly (and perhaps more importantly on a day to day basis), the locks draw the upper
and lower sash together, reducing gaps and drafts where the upper and lower sash meet.If you are
selecting sash locks, there are essentially two elements to consider, quality materials and correct
engineering.A traditional lock consists of the base/lever assemblyand the strike. The base/lever, installed
on the lower sash, should besturdy and comfortable for operational ease. Fine sash window locks, like the
SRS Hardware SL 01 feature a forged brass base and a stainless steel internal mechanism that clicks into
a positive stop in the open and locked positions. This keeps the lever firmly engaged at all times.
Aside from high quality materials, the most critical aspect of sash locks is extremely precise engineering of
the interplay between the lever and the strike. If improperly designed, a lock, no matter how expensive or
attractive it looks will not do its intended job, that being to pull the two sash tightly closed. The vast majority
of commodity sash locks on the market fail on this critical point.The SRS Hardware SL 01 lock is a superb
high quality sash lock based upon a traditional Fitch Pattern lock with updated design elements. We’ve
added a narrow strike, making it an excellent choice for sash with insulated glass. The lock’s patented,
stainless steel lever function insures crisp and decisive function and durability for long life. It is available in
five finishes Lacquered Brass, Unlacquered Brass, Oil Rubbed Bronze, Polished Nickel and Satin Nickel to
match our wooden window pulleys, window sash lifts and stop bead adjusters. Slotted oval head wood
screws are included with each lock.
