Window Hardware-Fenster FAQ

Replacing window hardware is usually a DIY’er project.  Its as simple as turning a few screws.  The difficulty lies in identifying the part you need.  Identifying window hardware is a tangible and visual process.  If we can’t see what you need, we can’t help!  Most window hardware is NOT brand specific.  Since most major window companies all used the same hardware, mainly TRUTH (with a few exceptions) knowing the brand of window doesn’t always help us.  We can’t possibly know what piece of hardware was used on a given brand, model, and production year.  BUT, if we know what part it is, or more importantly, SEE what part you need, then we have a good chance of getting you what you need.

When requesting window hardware, we need pictures emailed to us, and sometimes even a sample mailed to us.  You can always use our catalog link on our site, to identify your part on your own.  Don’t be overwhelmed by the 400 page catalog!  Wood window hardware, locks, operators, seals and screen parts are only on pages 120-275.

    I need to order the screened inserts for my MW windows on the house I built Years ago. I still have the
    plans that I used to build the house with the specs on the size of all the windows. Please send me a catalogue that has the aluminum clip in inserts, 2 at the top and 2 at the bottom.
    Home phone is 757-850 8418-Vinginia Thanks

      Danny, Thanks for the inquiry, but we have no association with MW. All of our products are our brand or after-market replacements. MW was bought out by a company called Ply-Gem. I’m not sure what their position is on replacement parts.

    I have Caradco windows that were installed in 1997. The sashes are beginning to rot out. They are triple hung, viny clad, roll-outs, one on each side of a middle stationary window – CAR-057-001-93. Do you have replacement wood sashes for these windows and even the sides as the wood is beginning to rot there also?

      Carolyn, We have ceased the sale of hardware due to a multitude of internet competition available. If you try a google search for window hardware, you can find several companies that can help you.

    Hi, I am working on a building that has Malta 7B4 windows. The screens are held in place with plastic clips at the bottom. Nearly all of the clips have failed. Are these clips available through your company or can you recommend a source for them?

      Patrick, We would like to find them too! Unfortunately we have not been able to source them to date.

      James, We don’t have Malta specific parts, but our jambliner kits usually work for most brands.
