screen plungers

Removing a screen requires two hands. To remove the screen from the interior of the house/building, raise the lower sash by one-third and lower the upper sash by one-third. Then pull in on the four clips or plungers located in each corner (1 and 2) until they disconnect.

Grasping the screen with two hands at the bottom, tilt the top of the screen away from the house/building and lift the bottom. This should release the screen from the track. Carefully tilt and turn the screen so that it fits through the open window. Then pass the screen through the window to the inside of the house/building (3).


screen plungers

To replace the screen, reverse the process above and make sure the four plungers are engaged.


NoteNOTE: Depending on the size of your unit, there may be only two plungers, but the process will be virtually the same.
