Shopping online for hardware can be daunting and stressful. However, HardwareSource makes it as easy as possible to find what you need to dress up the doors and windows in your home. We keep our inventory stocked with nothing but the highest quality products made by trusted brands, such as AmesburyTruth Hardware. Since 1955, Truth Hardware has been the destination for door and window parts as well as operating hardware for windows, patio doors, and skylights. We proudly offer a wide selection of hinges, operators, and parts in a wide variety of finishes.
There is a very good chance that the door and window hardware in your home was made in Owatonna, MN, where AmesburyTruth Hardware has been designing and manufacturing parts for more than 60 years. This rich heritage in hardware began when a local prefabricated home company came to Truth in need of push bar operators for the awning windows used inside their homes. Truth engineers designed a non-rotary type operator as a solution and patented it as the Lever Lock. To this day, Truth's window operators set the industry standard for quality.
What kind of windows do you have in your home?
Both awning and casement windows are commonly referred to as crank windows, but there are several distinct differences between them. Although both types of windows open outward, awning windows are hinged at the top and can only open upward whereas casement windows are hinged at the side and open to the left or the right. Sash windows are very common in contemporary homes, and they are made of movable panels that are designed to hold glass panes in place. No matter what kind of windows you have in your home, we can help you find the best solution.
Casement Windows: We offer a variety of casement hardware and operators, many of which are made of high-grade stainless steel to ensure corrosion resistance in coastal regions and other demanding environments. Our vast selection of casement hinges includes four-bar hinges, concealed hinges, and egress hinges for windows that need to open at 90 degrees for fire escape access. We also offer an array of casement operators in various sizes and finishes, with either single or dual arms. In need of keepers, covers, clips, handles, or tracks? You are sure to find them here!

Skylights: In this selection of window hardware, you will find both angle and straight drive operators compatible with wood, metal, or vinyl framed skylights. Truth's skylight operators are easy to install and simple to use. If you are looking for a sleek and quiet solution for your skylight, look no further than the Sentry II WLS Motor System.

Plain Bearing: Plain bearing is the simplest type of bearing. They are a good low cost option for lightweight doors. Ball Bearing: Ball bearing hinges have ball bearings to act as a buffer between the knuckles. They tend to be quieter and more durable than plain bearing hinges. They are recommended for heavy doors and doors fitted with closers. Roller Bearing: Roller bearings are able to support very heavy loads. Many of our heavy duty gate hinges are equipped with roller bearings.
Face Frame: Face frame cabinets have a “frame” that attaches to the front of the cabinet. The face frame gives the cabinet box extra strength while adding dimension to the door fronts. Face frame cabinets are commonly made by American cabinet manufactures. Frameless: Frameless cabinets do not have a face-frame, and instead rely on thicker side panels for strength. Frameless cabinets are very common in Europe, but have steadily been making their way into America, as they lend themselves well to contemporary and modern designs.
