Hey, you're in the home improvement zone--YOUR HANDYMAN ZONE!

Windows and Components Category

Problem:

Slide of a window sash, specifically a metal frame, is broken and unreachable.

Tools / Materials (See Below for Applicability):

  • Needle-thin and flexible piece of metal, such as a paperclip

  • Pliers

Solution:

 

The sliding part of your metal window frame is broken and out of reach to be replaced, what to do? Get a hold of a needle-thin and flexible piece of metal to be used to harness this elusive broken slide.  A good candidate of this needle-thin piece of metal you need to do the job is a paperclip; with a pair of pliers, or really your hands, make a right-angle hook out of this paperclip.  Formed with this right-angle hook, insert this paperclip--with the right-angle hook first--in the window sash and maneuver it so as to have the hook hitch onto the elusive broken slide, and then--once hooked--move the paperclip (and its hook) towards the middle of the sash so as to drag the broken slide to the sash opening for replacement purposes.

Caution: When dealing with sharp objects, such as a paperclip bent out of its usual shape, make sure you take precautions.

Using a paperclip as so will allow you to "capture" that elusive broken slide in no time.
