Late vent window latch fix.


Recommended Posts

I rebuilt a vent window latch and got it to lock good and tight. But when I went to remove one of mine, which was frozen tight, I backed out the set screw to disassemble it and BADDA BING, it's fine now!

Just don't back it out too far because this will allow the knob to spin all the way off the shaft and the pin will fall out of the hinge.

It may not work for everyone, especially if yours have been forced and the square hole on the bottom of the pin is rounded out, but it's certainly worth investigating.
