REMOVING THE SCREEN

Removing a double-hung half-screen from the interior of the house/building requires two hands. Start by fully raising the lower window sash. Grasping the screen handle with one hand, use the other hand to pivot each of the four screen latch clips out of the grooves on the sides of the window frame. To avoid dropping the screen, be sure to hold the screen handle securely. Once all four screen latch clips are retracted from the frame, carefully push the screen away from the bottom of the window frame first, then downward to release the screen from the top of the window frame. To bring the screen into the house/building through the window, carefully tilt and turn the screen so it fits through the open window, and then guide the screen through the window to the inside.

INSTALLING THE SCREEN

Installing a double-hung full-screen from the interior of the house/building requires two hands. First, fully raise the lower window sash. Grasp the screen handle with one hand, and use the other hand to carefully guide the screen through the open window to the outside. Make sure the screen handle and screen latch clips are facing the interior, and then position the screen in the top of the window frame first, then pull into the bottom of the window frame. Pivot the four screen latch clips into the grooves on the sides of the window frame to hold the screen in place. To help avoid scratching the aluminum cladding or wood, make sure the latches are aligned with the slots and are fully retracted when installing or removing screens.
