Source For Older Viking Brand Window Hardware?


I've called around and it is not easy to find. None of the shops around here have the right replacement and to make it even worse, there is no part number, so cross referencing is not easy.

Who makes bolt-on-replacement for early 90s viking door latch like the one shown in attachment?

thank you

They make the hardware for probably about 90% or more of the manufactures, just wont say viking on it

Viking was bought by Pella and renamed Thermastar.

No guarantee, but you may be able to get replacement hardware thru them.

Try StryBuc. They have an on line catalog that has locks that are very similar to the photo. Just check the center to center spacing of the attachment screws. The locks that I have dealt with over years(residentially) have a spacing between 2" and 2 1/4". The lock won't have Viking on it, and it may even be black. Paint it.
StryBuc carries a lot of obsolete parts for older windows. May be a good source for others that vivit this site.
Another source is Blaine Hardware. They don't have that type of lock shown in their on line catalog.
Hope you find what you need.

I ran into the same situation as Electric Light did, I called the guy at ABC Building Supply and he is not the same "Viking" as shown in the photo. I made a few more calls around and may have a lead on a replacement part - if I get some good news I will post it up.
