Our Nylon Tipped Spring Bolt is a replacement for and higher quality version of the now discontinued Stanley #1697 spring bolt. We have incorporated Stanley’s economical nylon tip and replaced the corrosion-prone steel housing with a durable zinc plated brass housing and non-corroding stainless spring mechanism for a trouble-free service life. The bolt has an attractive spade-shaped finial for a secure and comfortable grip. This cost-effective bolt is used extensively to fasten transom windows by large fire-rated door manufacturers.
The bolts can also be used in a variety of situations where a sash, screen or panel needs to be easily removable. They are easy to install requiring only a 3/8″ diameter hole drilled through each lower stile and a second hole drilled into the window or door jamb. The swaged and slotted housing is a secure press fit. The bolts are zinc plated.
Door and window manufacturers use the bolts to secure transom sash over doors, insert screens or interior storm panels.
