What is Easy Stop?

 

Easy-Stop weather-stripping system is a new concept in reducing air-infiltration. Designed to eliminate the old time consuming methods of metal jam liners, cushion bronze, spring bronze and interlocking metal weather-stripping.

 

Easy-Stop incorporates patented technology within an engineered parting stop to effectively decrease air infiltration while leaving the original details of the window untouched.

 

Made from cellular PVC, Easy-Stop is durable and paintable, it will not warp or twist and is highly UV light resistant. Easy-Stop can be cut just like wood

 

Installation is a Snap!

Remove the old wooden parting stop, replace with Easy-Stop. Insert weather-stripping on the lower sash and you’re finished. See detailed instructions for the 1/2” Easy-Stop Kit the 3/8” Standard Easy-Stop Kit, or the 3/8” CA Header Easy-Stop Kit.
