Hang Your Weights

Summary

Now it's time to hang your weights!

Below, I give you two options.  The first video shows you the "Window Trim Option" - for those of you who've opted to access the weights by pulling off the trim.  The second video shows you the "Pocket Doors Option" - for those of you who are able to access your weights through the window weight pocket doors.

WINDOW TRIM OPTION

  • Hanging Your Weights - Where the Trim is Removed.  First, tie the sash rope to the weight as shown in the video.  Then tie a little "pretzel knot" on the opposite side, where the rope will attach to the sash.  A pretzel knot is the simplest type of knot where you just tie the rope on itself, as shown in the video.  

POCKET DOORS OPTION

  • Hanging Your Weights - Using Pocket Doors.  Using the window weight pocket doors, pull your rope through.  Then tie the rope to the weight as shown in the video.  Then tie a little "pretzel knot" on the opposite side, where the rope will attach to the sash.  A pretzel knot is the simplest type of knot where you just tie the rope on itself, as shown in the video.
