The Timeline Auto Sash Lock

The Timeline Auto Sash Lock

Market requests for a modern and stylish sash lock are realized with the Timeline Auto Sash Lock. This new option combines intuitive functionality with a sleek and ergonomic design. It is available on double hung , single hung and slider windows. The attractive lock appeals to homeowners, architects and designers interested in contemporary charm.

The central feature is an easy-to-operate flip lever. Unlock the window by flipping the lever with a simple touch of the finger and the sash is ready to slide open. Unlike a traditional cam-type lock, less force is needed to operate the lock mechanism. A homeowner without particularly nimble fingers or hands may find an Auto Sash Lock far more convenient to use.

Once the sash is opened, the flip lever resets itself to the same position it is in when locked. The appearance is very efficient with the flip lever down. As the sash is closed, it automatically locks again. This makes it easy to determine if the sash is completely closed.

As an added safety measure, the lock incorporates a breakaway feature that causes the flip lever to keep popping up if the window is not closed completely. Therefore, a closed window is a locked window.

Traditional cam-type locks can be operated with the window in the open position. A partially open cam could then potentially damage the sash lock keeper, the lock itself or a Simulated Divided Lite grill bar.

Our Auto Sash Lock is available in three colors: white, sandstone and adobe. Windows with a 32” or under rough opening have one (1) sash lock and units over 32” receive two (2) sash locks. All Timeline window hardware is warranted against defects in materials and workmanship for a period of ten (10) years.

Upgrade your new window package with our newest window option, the Auto Sash Lock. Inexpensive in cost and rich in appearance, Timeline’s Auto Sash Lock is sure to gain popularity!
