Both sashes raise and lower for ventilation as well as tilt inward for access to the exterior glass surfaces from inside the room. The bottom sash tilts in by activating the finger release latches and pulling the top of the sash toward you. The top sash does not have tilt latches, it will simply pull toward you after the bottom sash has been tilted. The jamb liners house the spring balance system. The tilting action of the sashes is achieved by the combination of a pair of sash pins, located near the bottom of each side of the sash, and a pair of balance shoes located in the jamb liners. The balance shoes feature a locking action that supplies tension within the jamb liner track when the sash is tilted 90°. This feature is useful to help prevent the bottom of the sash from moving up or down while the sash is tilted for cleaning. It will also hold the shoes and springs in position when you choose to remove the sash completely from the window.Sash Tilting Instructions
The top and bottom sashes secure to one another by means of a cam-action sash lock that is recess mounted in the check rail (or lock rail). Sashes under 32” wide have one lock. Those 32” and wider have two locks.
The lock keeper is recess mounted in the face of the meeting rail of the top sash. The standard keeper is concealed when the sash is closed and locked. An alternate flanged keeper is available with an extended surface that helps protect the wood near the keeper area from damage from the sash lock in the event that the lock is inadvertently turned to the closed or partially closed position while attempting to close the sash.
A pair of tilt latches holds the top of the bottom sash in the two side jamb tracks. Finger tabs allow you to disengage these from the jamb tracks to tilt the bottom sash inward. The tilt latches have a plastic housing with a spring-loaded tab. The latches are recess mounted in the top of the check rail next to both sides.
