  Window Hinge

 

  Step 1: Determine whether the window is hanging from the top or from the side

 

  The window on the left is an example of a side-hung window-the window pivots out of the side of the frame.

 

  Step 2: Measure the length of the hinge

 

  Measure the length of the hinge by measuring the parts connected to the window frame

 

  You may find that you cannot find a result that exactly matches the measured value of the window hinge. If this is the case, we recommend that you purchase the closest match you can find.

 

  Step 3: Measure the width of the hinge

 

  Measure the width of the hinge

 

  Measure the width of the hinge connected to the window frame (see B measurement on the left-click on the image to expand). The standard width is 17-18mm; hinges with a width of 15-16mm are classified as "thin lines".

 

  Step 4: Measure the stack height

 

  The final measurement is the height of the paper pile. The easiest way to measure the height of the stack is to open the window wide enough to insert a ruler between the window and the frame. But the ruler rests against the frame and estimates the distance to the bottom of the window itself. The hinge has two stack heights: 13mm and 17mm, so you should be able to judge from this estimate which is best for your window.

 

  Window Lock

 

  Step 1: Pay attention to the position of the lock shell relative to the panel

 

  In the first case, attention should be paid to the position of the lock box relative to the panel-inline or offset.

 

  The top example shows an offset lock box-located on one side of the panel.

 

  The embedded lockbox (follow the image at the bottom) is located in the center of the panel.

 

  Step 2: Identify the shape of the rail

 

  Look back at the rail to determine the shape of the rail.

 

  The top image is a flat rail; the bottom image shows a U-shaped rail.

 

  Step 3: Take the measurement

 

  The next step is to make a series of measurements:

 

  Answer: The distance from the middle of the spindle to the front of the lock.

 

  B: The length of the panel is the distance from the top to the bottom of the panel that is flush with the window.

 

  C: The horizontal width of the panel whose width is flush with the window.

 

  D: Cam height The height of the mushroom (or roller) cam at both ends of the guide rail.
