Skylight hardware includes the hinges, cranks, handles and latch plates. The quality of and placement of hardware can affect the performance of the weatherstripping and poorly placed metal hardware can act as a thermal conductor resulting in increased heat loss.

Other types of optional hardware include electronic operators that can be installed to open and close hard-to-reach operable skylights as well as any shades or blinds that control the amount of light entering the room.
