SWISCO - The Replacement Hardware Authority

Locking Handle 38-001

A contractor from Australia says:
We are interested in purchasing 100 of these fasteners for steel framed windows. We have a Government Maintenance Contract where these type of locks were used on buildings built in the sixties. They are no longer avaialble in Australia. The locks on these windows are left & right handed with the handle either slightly curved to the left or to the right. (Refer attached photo). Are the handed version available? If not, it maybe wise just to get one shipped over first to determine whether it works before we place the order for 100. Are there more technical drawings available? Do you have 100 in stock?
Looking forward to hearing from you.

Thank you for posting. If at all possible, can you please upload a picture of a handle that is not broken? I would like to see the back hook. Also, could you please tell me the dimensions? Most importantly, the distance between the two installation hole centers and the offset between the back hook and the plate.
A contractor from Adelaide, Australia says:
Thank You Dave for your quick reply.

I will try to upload an "undamaged" fastener, but have checked the distance between the two fixing holes and it is 60mm in our measurements, converted its 2 3/8in.

I am 99% certain it will work, but if I can't upload a photo, I will measure the spacing between the hook & the fixing plate and will refer back to the spacing shown in your cat.

Regards Rino
