Quick How To video on removing a Hurd Casement Sash from a frame in a few easy steps.

Just disconnect the operator arms from the sash bracket and/or track shoe from the sash as shown in the 1st part of the video. No need to disconnect the top and bottom hinge. Note that in this video this is a new style window and parts have the SNAP RINGS on the Hinges and sash bracket.
