Hopper windows are a type of window that is hinged at the top and opens by pushing outward from the bottom. They are often used in basements, attics, and other areas where ventilation is needed. Hopper window handles are used to open and close the window, and it is important to install them correctly to ensure that the window operates properly.

Safety First

Before you begin installing the hopper window handle, it is important to take some safety precautions. Hopper windows are heavy, and if they are not properly supported, they can fall and cause serious injury. Make sure to have a helper assist you with the installation, and always wear safety glasses and gloves.

Gather Your Tools

You will need the following tools to install a hopper window handle:



Measuring tape



Locate the Center of the Window

The first step is to locate the center of the window. Use a measuring tape to measure the width of the window frame, and then divide that number by two. Mark the center point with a pencil.

Drill the Pilot Hole

Next, you will need to drill a pilot hole for the screw. The pilot hole should be located in the center of the window frame, and it should be about 1/2 inch deep.

Install the Screw

Insert the screw into the pilot hole, and turn it clockwise until it is snug. Do not overtighten the screw, or you could damage the window frame.

Attach the Hopper Window Handle

Now you can attach the hopper window handle to the screw. Align the handle with the screw, and then turn it clockwise until it is tight.

Test the Handle

Once the handle is installed, test it to make sure that it works properly. Open and close the window several times to make sure that the handle turns smoothly and that the window opens and closes easily.

Adjust the Handle

If the handle is not working properly, you may need to adjust it. Loosen the screw that is holding the handle in place, and then move the handle up or down until it is in the correct position. Once the handle is in the correct position, tighten the screw.
