USA Clad Wood Comfort-Tilt Double Hung Hardware

Sash Locks & Keepers

The Comfort-Tilt Double Hung window uses a cam-action lock with a concealed keeper to secure the sashes in the closed position. Most sizes use one lock in the center of the checkrail. Larger size windows use two locks spread left and right on the checkrail.

Sash Tilt-In Latches

Both of the sashes raise and lower for ventilation and can be tilted inward for cleaning or other purposes. A pair of finger-release sash tilt latches located on the checkrail can be disengaged from the side jamb tracks, allowing the top of the sash to be tilted inward. Once tilted to 90°, the sash can be removed from the window.

Tilt-Sash Instructions

Always use caution when tilting and or removing the sash. They can be heavy and require the support of the user.

Sash Tilt-In Pivot Balance Shoes

The Comfort-Tilt Double Hung uses Pivot Balance Shoes that interlock with Sash Pivot Tabs, located near the lower end of the sash, to hold the sash in the jamb tracks as well as provide the tilt operation of the sash. The balance shoes have a locking function when the sash is fully tilted which helps hold the sash in place.

Sash Balance System

A Spring Balance System is used to assist the sashes in their opening and closing operation and to help hold the sash in place when the lock is released and the sashes are opened. This balance system is housed within a pair of vinyl jamb liners.
