Hello all,

I have a large slide with vertical sliding windows. On one of the windows the cheap, plastic internal latches/tabs that allow you to position the window in various positions broke and I'm not sure how to replace them. The window not only won't stay open without being propped, but without the tabs it also won't lock shut either.

Is there a way to replace them without removing and disassembling the entire window?

Thanks!

Yeah, I was closing the exit window last week and that little plastic tip that latches the handle closed snapped.

LOL, $80 for replacement, hmmmmm maybe a little glue and duct tape? (Just kidding). Think I'll have ponder this one for a bit.
