5 Steps to Tilt In Windows for Easy Cleaning
Ensure the window lock is in the “unlocked” position.
Open the bottom sash a few inches.
Find the tilt latches on either side of the top rail and squeeze them toward each other. This will release the sash from the window frame so you can gently lean the tilt in windows sash inward until it rests in the open position.
Repeat the same steps with the top sash. NOTE: the bottom sash must be opened before the top sash can be released from the frame. Begin by lowering the top sash a few inches from the top of the window frame, then squeeze the tilt latches toward each other and tilt the sash inward.
With both sashes open, you can easily clean the exterior glass and remove any debris that has collected in the window frame. When you’re finished cleaning, work in reverse order to replace the sashes. Simply tilt the top sash back up and push it forward into the frame until it snaps into place. Then, fully raise it to close the sash. Repeat with the bottom sash and you’re finished!
NOTE: If the window sashes do not close properly into place, they may need to be squared-up in the frame. Tilt the sash back in, and ensure the bottom corners of each sash are level in the frame, then try raising the sashes into place again.
