GU Hardware has announced that they are recalling approximately 5,000 window fittings due to an injury hazard. The window fittings can break, causing the window to fall, posing an injury hazard to consumers.
This recall involves tilt-turn stay arm and side-hung sash hinge adjustable window fittings. They are used to attach a window to a frame and primarily sold for use in commercial buildings. The fittings have clamps, locking pins and stainless steel springs. “G-U” and the component number are stamped at the ends of the fitting.
