Friction stay window hinges are an essential part of any window, as they allow the window to be opened and closed smoothly. However, over time, these hinges can become dirty and stiff, which can make it difficult to open and close the window. In this article, we will provide you with a step-by-step guide on how to properly maintain and clean friction stay window hinges.

Tools and Materials

Before you begin, you will need to gather the following tools and materials:

A soft cloth

A mild detergent

A toothbrush or cotton swab

A lubricant (such as WD-40)

A pair of pliers

Cleaning the Hinges

1. Remove the hinge pin. Using a pair of pliers, gently remove the hinge pin from the hinge. Be careful not to lose the hinge pin, as it is a small part.

2. Clean the hinge pin. Once the hinge pin is removed, clean it with a soft cloth and a mild detergent. Be sure to remove any dirt or debris that may be on the hinge pin.

3. Clean the hinge body. Using a soft cloth and a mild detergent, clean the hinge body. Be sure to remove any dirt or debris that may be on the hinge body.

4. Lubricate the hinge. Once the hinge body and hinge pin are clean, lubricate the hinge with a lubricant. Be sure to apply the lubricant to all of the moving parts of the hinge.

Reinstalling the Hinge

1. Reinsert the hinge pin. Once the hinge is lubricated, reinsert the hinge pin into the hinge body. Be sure to insert the hinge pin correctly, as it can only be inserted in one way.

2. Tighten the hinge pin. Using a pair of pliers, tighten the hinge pin until it is snug. Be careful not to overtighten the hinge pin, as this can damage the hinge.

3. Test the hinge. Once the hinge pin is tightened, test the hinge to make sure it is working properly. The hinge should open and close smoothly.
