Effective November 1st, Win-Dor will be updating the 1550 window system locks. This update will include all sliding and single hung configurations. Orders that are placed in mid October will be manufactured with the new lock.
Will this change affect you?
If you previously installed windows into a home using our older lock system, and still have additional windows to order and install, there’s a good possibility that you’ll end up with mismatched styles of locks. You can request new locks to replace the old locks by writing us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
When ordering service replacement locks it’s important to make sure you ask for the correct lock, self-latching or cam lock style. We will be carrying a few self-latching locks on hand for these occasions.
Otherwise, both new and old locks are installed using the same tools and methods, so this shouldn’t create any confusion with your installers.
We’re excited about this change and we hope that it makes things easier for you. Please feel free to reach out if you have any questions, comments or concerns.
