Window Lock from the SL Collection
Really like these sash locks
Was not looking for standard sash locks. These hit the spot with more of a vintage flair and a lever, yet not pay $50 per lock, as many others that I've seen.
You have to line up the lever carefully at the "peak" of the semi-circle to ensure the lock will pull the meeting rails together tightly. Keep an eye on this when you install the pieces. This might be the case with any lever-type lock, however.
The screws that come with the screws are not that great - too soft, especially if you're installing into old windows with really hard wood. Would recommend purchasing some on your own.

I love it! Handsome retro look, efficient, and easy to install. Solid piece with a hefty, durable feel. Fair price and great customer service too. Shipped almost instantly.
