MAX6 Window Lock (Sash Jammer)
1. First you will need to see if your window opens inwards or outwards. If the window opens inwards, the sash jammer (A) is to be fitted to the fixed window frame. If the window restrictor opens outwards, it is to be fitted to the window on the same panel as the window handle.
2. You will need to decide how high on the window you want the sash jammer. We recommend that you have it around half way up the panel.
3. Take the sash jammer and place it on the window (either on the fixed panel, or the frame itself (see step 1). Mark the 2 screw holes on the window frame using a pencil.
4. A removable cap has been provided on the end of the sash jammer. Turn the securing arm of the sash jammer 90 degrees, so it is in a locking position on the window. If the end of the sash jammer is a tight fit against the window frame, then you will need to remove the cap by pulling it off. If there is a small gap, then leave the cap on the end.
5. Remove the sash jammer from the window, and using a drill, make pilot holes where you have marked on the window.
6. Place the sash jammer back onto the window panel, and using a drill and 3mm drill bit, screw 2 x self-drilling screws (B) into the sash jammer to secure it.
7. Take 2 of the caps (C) and press them down over the 2 holes on the sash jammer.
8. Check to make sure the sash jammer operates correctly. To do this, turn the securing arm of the sash jammer 90 degrees (left or right depending which side of the window the handle is on), so it is in a locking position on the window. Then try to open your window. If you cannot open your window, the sash jammer is operating correctly.
9. Repeat steps 1-7 with the other sash jammer.
How to Use
To use the sash jammer, simply turn the securing arm 90 degrees (either left or right depending which side the handles are on). This will lock the window, preventing it from opening. If you want to open your window, turn the securing arm 90 degrees and this will allow you to open the window. We advise you keep the sash jammer locked at all times when no one is present in the room, to prevent anyone being able to lever the sash or door leaf and gain unauthorised entry.
