Description

The bane of window owners and restorers alike are windows that are painted shut. A necessary first step to restoring sash or even getting them to operate at all is to free the sash. The uppers get “fixed” to the exterior casing or blind stop with paint and the lowers become similarly fixed to the interior stop. This Window Opening Tool is laid up against the sash and is used to “saw” through the accumulated layers of paint to release the sash. In some cases that’s enough to make a balky window function well for the first time in decades, in other cases it’s the first step in a more involved restoration process. In either case, this inexpensive tool will pay for itself many times over!

"Holy Moly!!! Just got the email about the new (TL 01) Thumb Latches you're making! I'm sure I'm not the only one to send you one of my old ones/ inquire about availability, but you sure make a guy feel heard! This shows once again why I forgo the cheap imitations online for the stuff you make… forward thinking and responsive with your (re)-innovating product offerings. 5 years I've been looking for these. I'll be buying some this week! It's amazing that any company today is as nimble and responsive as you are for your customers. Now that I can get the Thumb Latches I can finally refurb the windows in my 1774 house without thinking I'm only able to do it "half way". I'm going home tonight and will tally up the quantity and finishes and order them tomorrow!Babcock Patent Lock Richard W."
