SWISCO - The Replacement Hardware Authority

window crank

A home owner from Tulsa OK says:
My 56 yr old casement windows have the crank and its "receiver" stripped and the crank turns uselessly.The crank fits onto a metal box approx. 1" x 4" with a protrusion. do you have replacements for this metal box & crank? Sorry, I don't know the right names for this stuff

Do not be sorry. Did you look through SWISCO's casement operators? See if you can pick your replacement out. If you are having trouble, take a photo and send it us by attaching it to a discussion reply post.
A quick learner says:
Hi, I need two cranks bigger than 3/8. I think, my old ones are from 1967 and should be around 1/2.

Take a look at our 39-195 handle, it has a 7/16 bore.

I tried those and still did not work. I ended using a universal star handle for a kitchen faucet. The handle looks like your tipycal Anderson crank handle. However, the size of my handles are bigger.
