We offer Genuine Samson “Red Spot” sash cord in trade size #8 and #7. Samson Cordage has been manufacturing sash cord and rope for over 130 years and their Samson Slaying the Lion trademark is the oldest trademark in the country. Sash cord is preferred for existing pulleys with concave wheels designed specifically for cord. It is a fool’s errand to try to economize with the sash cord you choose. Experienced builders know to look for the trademark “Red Spot” woven right into the cord.

Pro Tip: a good rule of thumb for the amount of cord needed for re-roping a typical double hung residential window is 20′ per opening.

    The real McCoy
    I have been looking for sash cord that is durable like the ropes I have taken out. The sash cord that SRS provides has the strength that most others that you find at HD or Ace hardware don’t. They (SRS) will be my “go to” from now on.

    It has Worked Perfectly
    Recommended by a friend who has a full-time window restoration business, I was able to get replacement sash cord from SRS Hardware for a house we are rehabilitating and it has worked perfectly.

    I am a contractor that does window restoration, I have used several of SRS products. I have had no problems replacing anything original, fit , finish and operation is as good or better than new. SRS is great to work with, items are in stock, process and ship timely.

    I have replaced broken sash cords on several windows with the cord sold in the big box stores and have been disappointed with the results, the cords stretch and fray in very little time compared with the original cords. I found an ad for SRS and Samson Red Spot sash cord in Old House Journal magazine and purchased a hank. This cord is much more substantial than the previous cord I had used. The cord cuts cleanly and the ends do not fray after cutting. SRS has been great to deal with and I highly recommend this cord.

    Product came exactly as described. We were able to fix all the cords in our windows and they all work amazingly now. Definitely the best price on the market for this type of cord for old wooden windows.

    I have a 95-year-old house with some broken sash cords throughout. I replaced 3 windows cords so far last week. I am happy with the product and how it worked out so far. This came highly recommended.

    Shipping was timely.
    Product as described.
    Would buy it again.

"Hi Justin,

I received the first shipment yesterday and just wanted to let you know what a great product you've got!
I used to work as a manufacturing engineer for Apple where I did lots of cosmetically-sensitive machining and surface finishing and I'm really impressed with both the design and execution of these parts. The cast surfaces are clean, the machined ones are burr-free, and the brushed ones aren't washed out from excessive polishing before texturing. The bearings in the pulley feel great and the action on the sash lock is nice and crispy.
I'm happy to have hardware like this in my home! I know that products like this take a lot of effort so I wanted to acknowledge it.
