Schuco PAL Locks - Did I make a Wrong Choice Here

#1 Post by steelersfan » Wed Mar 15, 2006 10:17 pm

My Schucos have been ordered all with PAL locks. Been doing some reading on these boards and saw some negative posts concerning the PAL locks.

I wasn't aware that they don't seal as tight as the Cam locks. Also I am a bit confused about the bug with the lock that was fixed I guess last year. My understanding is that the top sash will sometimes pull down when closing the window causing the PAL lock not to engage correctly. Is this really a problem with the lock or with the way the sash works.

Thanks

Dave

We haven't really had any problems with them....as long as the window is installed correctly they work fine. I would think your dealer would switch them out if you don't like them, it doesn't take anything but time to put cam locks on.

I'm gonna stick with the PAL locks. I loved them when I saw them.
