Window latches for uneven windows
I just finished attempting to install window latches which required much inelegant tinkering to get them to work (shimming one side.) The hardware is elegant, but the installation looks shoddy.
The rest of my victorian house has unusual window latches that work perfectly for uneven windows. Couldn't find them for years. They have a screw type of closure and I've discovered today that they're called Brighton Sash Fasteners. Some of my windows are very uneven, as much as 1/4" (or more.) These latches squeeze the windows as tight as they'll ever get.
I couldn't find a supplier in the US, but I didn't scour the Net. I ordered them from England (EBay), where they're almost a standard latch.
This solves a perennial problem for me and I thought I'd share it with you.
