Windows serve an important purpose in the grand scheme of any home. They allow sunlight in and make it possible for us to enjoy the beauty of the outdoors. However, frequent opening and closing of windows can eventually wreak havoc on the hardware those windows depend on to function or stay in place. When the time finally comes to replace those window latches and stays or chains, lifts and pulls, HardwareSource has all your needs covered with an extensive selection of window hardware. If you know the exact product you need to complete your retrofit or installation, you can save time by using our filters to search by window type, finish group, and material. We carry a wide variety of window operators, crank handles, adjusters, weights, pulleys, hinges, and other types of awning window hardware.
Give the windows in your home the much-needed update they deserve by exploring our selection of window hardware. We offer a wide range of operators for casement windows. Operators can be attached in numerous ways, including to the metal or wood window frame and the track channel at the bottom of the window. We also maintain a broad selection of window latches and stays, which can be used to fortify your windows or make them more versatile and unaffected by the wind when in use. We keep a variety of casement window fasteners in stock, which come with matching strike plates for surface-mounted, mortise-mounted, and edge-mounted installations. A window control is a nifty device you can use to tighten the double hung windows in your home if the sash cord should become broken. If you wish to counterbalance the weight of your sash window, a sash balance makes raising and lowering the window easier to do.
We also offer an assortment of restraint chains for doors and windows, so you can keep them from hitting nearby objects or prevent them from opening too far overall. Upgrading all the hardware in your home? We carry sash lifts and door pulls in a wide variety of finishes, so you can find the perfect complement to your existing hardware. Some of the most popular finishes in our selection include antique brass or nickel, oil-rubbed bronze, and polished chrome. If you are on the hunt for hinges that will allow your decorative doors or shutters to swing back flat against the wall, parliament hinges will do the trick. If you have any questions about sash, casement, or awning window hardware, our experts are here to help. Please feel free to call, email, or chat online with us while you shop.

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.
