SRS Hardware has come up with a great new product, “Add-on Sash Weights”.
Have you ever been vexed by a lower sash that won’t stay open, or an upper sash that has a “mind of its own” and wants to slowly slip down? This is a common and annoying phenomenon often caused when broken glass is replaced with slightly thicker (thus heavier) glass. They are simple to install and do not require disconnecting your existing weights from the sash chain or cord.
Each SRS AOW (add-on weight) ½ pound weight consists of a 1-3/8” diameter cast iron body and a CNC machined steel taper pin. The body has a ½” diameter hole through the center and a slot along its length allowing it to simply slip onto the sash cord or chain without having to unfasten the existing weight. Dropping the taper pin into the top of the slot firmly locks the weight onto the chain. Multiple AOW’s can be stacked in order to arrive at the perfect weight. Once you have removed the weight pocket cover and have access to the sash cord, installing the weights takes under 10 seconds each. We have kept the diameter small to be certain that the weights are suitable for residential sash and will fit easily through narrow residential weight pocket covers.
AOW weights are offered in 24 piece cases. $3.60/lb
SRS keeps plenty of cases in stock for immediate shipment.
