This product is designed for use by customers retrofitting sashes in situ. If you are able to remove your sashes, you may wish to perform this operation using a conventional router or mortiser.

This product is 20mm wide and designed to fit an Angelo Ventlock  centrally in the visible area of your sash stiles. You will need to ensure this can be done without damaging the glass pane.

To be sure this product will work with your sashes, please download the PDF ‘FITTING GUIDE’ below. And watch the video before purchasing.

For this operation you will need a pistol drill, 2mm drill bit, a suitable sharp 1/2″ (12.5mm) chisel, Phillips screwdriver, pencil & a hoover.

You will drill and fit one device first before moving to the other sash stile (the vertical timber section of the  moving upper sash).

  • Pencil mark out on your sash stiles the positions you wish to fit the Angel Ventlocks (See attached fitting guide showing ideal height to fit Angel Ventlock devices)
  • Offer up TEMPLATE 1 (the number is marked on the template) and mark through the two fixing holes with a pencil
  • Using a 2mm drill bit, pilot drill the holes to a depth of 10mm (using tape on the drill bit to indicate depth if necessary)
  • Using the screws that are supplied with the angel device, attach TEMPLATE 1 to the sash stile using the 2 small holes in the template
  • Fit the sleeved drill bit provided into the drill and drill through each hole in the TEMPLATE 1 – the depth is set by the sleeve stopping against the template
  • Remove TEMPLATE 1 and fit TEMPLATE 2 using the screws and holes you used to fit TEMPLATE 1
  • Repeat the process of drilling through each hole and then remove the template.
  • Vacuum the slot to remove any loose debris.
  • Offer up the Angel device and check for obstructions. These are likely to be the ‘peaks’ left on each side of the slot you have created .
  • Using the chisel carefully remove the peaks or obstructions taking care not to widen the slot as there is only a small lip each side of the Angel device faceplate.
  • We have found it can help to run the sleeved drill bit by hand up and down in the slot to help clear the debris
  • Keep checking the device in the slot until you get a snug fit.
  • Once fully seated in the slot, screw the device in position using the screws that came with it.
  • Repeat the process for the other sash stile.
  • Hoover and tidy.
