SWISCO - The Replacement Hardware Authority

Can I use 39-044 instead of 39-002?

A home owner from el paso texas says:
Ordered your 39-002 product then cancelled. My wife does not want silver. So we are looking at your 39-044 Getty product. My question now is: none of your products state they are made in the USA. I was referred to your company because they said your products were USA. Are your products still made in the USA or are they Foreign. Is 39-044 USA made and also which other products are USA? Also is your locking handle made in the USA? Can the 39-044 be purchased in white?

It is important to find the proper replacement crank operator, you cannot just choose a style based on its look. Let us help you choose which replacement crank operator will work for your window. Tell us about your window such as the manufacturer and/or year it was installed. Submit some pictures of your existing crank operator.

The various styles of crank operators featured on SWISCO are made by many different manufacturers. All of them are based in the USA but not all of them have their products manufactured in the USA. I do not believe the 39-044 style operator is manufactured in the USA.

We do not have the manufacturers name. The house was built in 1959. We are not even sure they are the original windows from that era but they look like it. Here is the picture of the window and oldest known crank, however it could have been replaced.

It's hard to tell with the operator in the window. At first glance to me it looks like it could be the 39-001 & 39-002. I'm not sure of the arm length. You really need to remove one of the operators from the window to really see what it is.
