How To Fit A Casement Window Stay
Casement stays are used to hold a casement window open in a fixed position. There are two components of a casement stay – the stay itself, which is a long metal bar with holes along it, and the pins that hold it in place.
To fit a casement stay, follow these steps:
- Hold the stay up against the window frame to mark where the screw holes should be. The stay should be installed off-centre at the bottom of the window, away from the hinged side. This will allow the window to open and be held open properly.
- Drill pilot holes into the areas you marked in step 1.
- Replace the casement stay and fix it into place.
- Close the window and place the first pin inside the first hole of the stay. Mark through the screw holes of the pin.
- Drill pilot holes into the areas you marked in step 4.
- Replace the first pin and fix it into place.
- Place the second pin inside the last hole of the stay and push the stay arm tight against the window. Mark through the screw holes of the pin.
- Drill pilot holes into the areas you marked in step 7.
- Replace the second pin and fix it into place.
Repeat these steps as many times as needed for your window installation!
