I need to install a large window on the second story of my house. Since I
only have use of one other person I would like to remove the glass panes
before we hoist the window. I know that I can take out all the panes but by
question is about the hardware for opening the two outside panes (the middle
pane is stationary).
I have experimented on some old casements that we removed last week and I
know that I can take out all the screws, a total of eleven for each window,
and pull the window out. I have also noticed a little clip that secures one
of the arms of the movement to the window hardware. If I slide that clip
back I can disconnect that arm and pull the other arm out through the slot
on the window hardware then I can leave the crank (and its pieces) on the
Are there any other tips or tricks I should know about? Do I need to remove
the other 6 screws on the window to separate it from the frame or is there a
way that the window will slide out without their removal.
The windows are Marvin Casemaster. Thanks for your help.
