Be cautious when handling any sharp edges or metal components.

Installation Steps

1. Remove the Old Handle

Locate the screws securing the old handle and remove them using a Phillips screwdriver.

Gently pull the handle straight out from the window frame.

Verify that the handle mounting plate is still securely attached to the window frame.

2. Determine Handle Placement

Use a measuring tape or ruler to measure the distance from the top of the window frame to the desired handle location.

Mark the center point of the handle placement with a pencil or marking tool.

Ensure the handle will not interfere with any other hardware or fixtures.

3. Install the Handle Mounting Plate

Align the handle mounting plate with the marked center point and insert the screws.

Tighten the screws securely using a Phillips screwdriver, but avoid overtightening.

Check that the mounting plate is level and does not wobble.

Place the handle over the mounting plate and align the screw holes.

Insert the screws and tighten them securely using a Phillips screwdriver.

Gently test the handle to ensure it operates smoothly and opens and closes the window as intended.

Open and close the window several times to verify proper function.

If any adjustments are needed, follow the steps above to fine-tune the installation.
