These sockets receive the end of our Spring Bolts and give window frames a finished appearance.
Jamb sockets are made of solid brass. To install, use a 7/16″ brad-point drill bit to drill several holes for the spring bolts as needed. Generally the bolts are set to secure the lower sash in the closed/locked position and one or two other “open positions.”
Pro-tip: we like to set the bolts so that the open positions are:
2. lower sash open 2 – 3 inches for a bit of ventilation while preventing children or pets from falling out of the window.
3. a height where muntins align.
Sockets are a friction fit and are tapped into place with a small hammer.
The sockets are available in Unlacquered Brass and Oil Rubbed Bronze.
