A TRANSOM LIFT (or operator) consists of the following:
• the spring pinch clasp
that sits near the bottom of the lift and allows the operator to set the open/closed position of the lift. (This piece mounts to the wall and provides the lower support.)
• a long rod
that serves as the operating mechanism and extends from below the clasp to near the top of the transom.
• the supports
that mount to the wall at the transom’s midpoint and top connection and which allow the rod to move up and down.
• the hinge assembly and lift mount bracket
that attaches to the transom sash and is hinged against the rod. (This hinge and the rod’s upward motion is what actually opens the transom.)
