Post Subject: Window catches

I hope other readers will come on and try to help but to me it looks home made. A strip of aluminum and a wooden knob. It looks as if it is secured to the glass by a nut and screw while most production windows use a plain rod and a domed "spire nut" or clip that are a beast to get off and will usually break when you try. There are a few marine window makers that advertise in the magazines and online like Severn marine Windows, Cadwalls, Chanelglaze & Wesley. There are several more. You could try looking on the glass for an etched name or talking to the individual companies.

Better photos were put on another site and they were identified as from Worcester Marine Windows who apparently went broke some years ago.
