Re: Wanting to purchase Kinro Window glazing bead

I found some miter snips LOL so now I know the answer. Learning to be a handyman (woman) later in life is not easy! :-)

Re: Removing sash from Kinro window

Thanks again Greg. I sent an email to Kinro, and I wasn't sure I was sending it to the right place but they emailed me back with a pdf file. And the sash does in fact come out. The pins on the window (pivot bar) are held in place by a pivot shoe which is a white plastic thing that slides up and down...

Re: French doors and door knob replacement

Thanks Greg. I figured it out, I simply had to leave out the latch. When I first tried it, I couldn't get it snug enough against the door but with a bit of fidgeting the two sides went flush against the door.

French doors and door knob replacement

My last question received no replies :( hopefully someone knows something about door knobs. This is the reason I hate mobile homes. Sooooooooo, I have french doors in the living room. The door knob just fell off on one of the doors and so I didn't look at it, when I wish I would have now. But one si...

I notice there are screws on the bottom so I was wondering if that ...

Re: Window cable

Yes it is a Kinro window! I had no idea..I found the brand name on the top of the window although not easy to see really. So I went to their web site and they say it's an easy lift rail, I think. lol Now maybe I can also get a replacement for the broken bathroom window, now that I know who made them.

Window cable

Hi, I am hoping someone can help me. I have windows that slide up and down on a cable, and well one of them is very hard to open now. Can I grease that metal cable with something to make it easier to slide up and down? The windows can open inward, and then I see the cable. I'm not very mechanical so...
