Evening all, 

Do any of you recognise these fittings?

They are what holds the glass to the runner on the top of my sliding windows.

The two external ones on my starboard window have totally corroded and the window is only held in place by the locking mechanism. The photos are from the port side window which are okay.

The boat was previously owned and kept up on the North East Coast and I'm guessing the Starboard side was exposed to the elements as only that side have corroded.

I would ideally like to replace them for the same but have no idea what they are called and where to acquire them, also the tool to enable their replacement.

Any help greatly appreciated.

P.s. the boat they come from is a Skilso 975 of the year 2000 vintage.

Looks like a variety of these http://www.interscrew.co.uk

In which case they appear to be called interscrews, hope this helps you track down what you need.

Cheers Ray,

I'm off to take a look now :1311_thumbsup_tone2:

Have zipped an email over to the company.

I'll let you know if they can help. 

Cheers Ray :default_beerchug:

They look a bit big for interscrews (They are normally a standard size, forget now what that is, the outside is generally just a standard screw too) but would need to something like that from your description. I'm not sure though ...Although a couple more links:

http://hadlowmarine.com/ 

https://www.seascrew.com

Also worth emailing norfolk based leading window company: http://www.seaglaze.co.uk

Cheers Alan,

Have saved those companies as well in my favourites.

I think I need to get one out when I'm next up at the boat so I can take some measurements etc and see what I can come up with.

Will need to find  or make a suitable anti tamper screw driver to undo one though!

Of course I could always drop an email to Skilso as well and see if they keep spares or if they can let me know where to obtain them from. 

Should keep me out of mischief for a few days anyhow :default_biggrin:

Take a look here: https://www.seascrew.com/browse.cfm?SECURITY-SCREWS--SELF-TAPPING-AND-MACHINE-IN-A2-STAINLESS-STEEL-&l=0000000108 seems like the same head and further down there's a bit suitable.. I'd guess you may find simular in screwfix etc if you can measure. All sees "fun" though! enjoy ;)

Cheers everyone.

Will be up to the boat Monday after work and will remove one ( I have obtained an anti tamper screw driver set) and get the size from it. Then order replacements from which ever of those companies that have the closest or same replacements.

Cheers once again to you all for the help:default_icon_bowdown:

Just for information this is the email reply I got back from the company that now owns Skilso.

Nice to have that information if ever needed in the future.

......................

"Hi Jeff,

Viknes bought Skilsø in 2011.

Unfortunately we do not have any historical information.

However I know the supplier of those parts.

 Ertec AS

www.ertec.no

 If you send them an email I am sure they can help you.

 

Have a nice day.

 Med hilsen

Viknes Båt og Service AS | www.viknes.no"
