POINTS OF MERIT OF THE
Champion Meetingrail Lock
Three things are demanded in a modern Meetingrail Sashlock, viz.:
To pick up the sash from that point to which it usually rebounds, and raise it to its proper position.
Perfect security against opening or picking from the out side, and to lock the sash so as to prevent them from rattling.
THE CHAMPION MEETINGRAIL LOCK meets this demand in every particular.
It has the merit of extreme simplicity combined with the greatest efficiency of any lock now known. It has remarkable strength, works easy and locks securely.
Architects, Builders and Hardware Dealers everywhere bear testimony to their unequaled merits. A thorough investigation will convince you of their superiority over all others.
