Its the lock handel for my Bitbest casement windows and the trim that it goes into. There are temporary black plastic ones in the windows right now. I only have a few of these and need to buy more.

Anyone know where I can find more of these? Biltbest windows no longer exists.

Thanks

It looks like a proprietary part, meaning that your window manufacturer made it. It does not look like a common off the shelf item that you could buy somewhere else.

thanks, Yeah unfortunatley Biltbest windows when out of business. Its just the latch that locks the window after using the crank to close the window. The fork part goes into the widow, so the handle is the only thing that is visible.There has to be another window company that uses it.

I did some checking at several sites I've used before, with good results, and some that say they have Biltbest parts...but none showed that specific latch. Cranks, operators, other parts, yes...but not the latch.

I think your best bet would be doing the same search and calling or emailing them directly, if you haven't already. They may have some compatible parts or be able to offer advice on a modification to allow other hardware to be used.

This often happens with the injection molded parts like yours appear to be.

Found your parts. Ashland carries them, but you have to buy them in quantity...
Here's a scan of the catalog page, (didn't see it in their online catalog)
