Easing tight wing window latches, reducing the striker height
The Dino Wing windows fasten with a rotating catch attached to the glass and a plastic striker on the rail to cinch the rotating window into place. For decades theses have been breaking off as owners struggle to find new and stronger adhesives. In my case, the adhesive partly held long enough to remove some scalloped shaped glass pieces too.
So rather than focus on finding a super adhesive, I step back and look at the problem; too much pressure on the latch when closed.
Examining this, I see that by reducing the striker height the latch pressure will be reduced.
I pop the striker cover with a pick, drill out the rivets, grind the striker backing down to reduce height and install back in the original spot
