How to get around window locks on FG

Recommended Posts

I seen a thread awhile back regarding removing window locks and reinstalling them, the ones that have a metal plate that is hard to reinstall once you remove both screws, what I do in a situation like this, see pics below.

This pic shows how tight the lock is against the glass.



I remove one screw and just loosing the other one.


Now you can get behind the latch, I use my factory edge on the bottom and trim the top of the window.

Remove the lock, it's not that hard. Phillips screwdriver, twist left. :twocents


I think you're missing the context of the original thread. Some have anchors that drop into the window frame. When you go to put the locks back no more threads to put the screws into. Thanks to our friend the engineers.
