Q & A

Broken Window catch.

I have broken one of the catches on a hopper window. It is from a Cauldwells window about 10 years old; one of spoon shaped aluminium catches attached by a bolt through the glass. They are no longer available from the manufacturers.
I would appreciate any suggestions about a possible source of a spare, or an alternative to replace this.

It might be worth asking a boatyard if they could fabricate you a replacement in aluminium (though stainless steel 316 might be easier to work with). An alternative might be to cut an acrylic wedge to act as a closure, as it is fairly easy to shape and drill (wood could be an alternative as a cheap "stop-gap").
