Telescoping Casement Stays
These telescoping friction stays function very nicely as casement window stays. The friction is sufficient to hold against moderate wind. We have also found that they also make excellent chest stays and drafting table adjusters. Because these stays collapse into themselves, they require only minimal free space inside a chest and the internal friction provides a margin of safety against accidental closure. The locking varieties are ideal for drafting tables where a suitable angle can be found and held with just the friction, then locked for use.
