Take one end of the string and knot a loop about one centimeter in diameter. The string should get a sort of lasso loop.

Throw the string over the frame of the window sash and guide it with a light pull to the side opposite the window handle. There you hold the cord with light tension.

Place the suction cup centrally on the glass about ten centimeters below the top frame. Light moistening and previous removal of dirt can increase the suction power.

5. Open the window

Pull the tilted window closed and pull the string end in your hand during this movement. The loop folds the window handle or the window handle and the window opens.
