    Propping Open a Window

    My window won't stay open, so until I can get someone out to get it fixed, What can I use to prop it open?
    I don't have any extra pieces of wood.
    Thanks!
    Good morning, son
    In twenty years from now
    Maybe we'll both sit down and have a few beers
    And I can tell you 'bout today
    And how I picked you up and everything changed
    It was pain
    Sunny days and rain
    I knew you'd feel the same things...

    I don't think we have any of those either. I should run outside and look.

    How about a stack of Harry Potter hardcovers? 1st Editions work good.

    Actually, hard cover books is a GREAT idea! And we have plenty that aren't Harry Potter... 1st ed. or not

    Re: Propping Open a Window

    What did I tell you about these windows!? Always leave them open!!
    "Peter," she asked, trying to speak firmly, "what are your exact feelings to me?"
    "Those of a devoted son, Wendy."
    "I thought so," she said, and went and sat by herself at the extreme end of the room.

    Re: Propping Open a Window

    When I saw the title, without seeing who posted, just seeing it was in the boys lounge I thought this was going to be about proping open a window in the potty post...yeah. And I had a response all planned out. Darn.

    You could like jimmy a broom handle to prop it open. Like prop the broom at an angle and in the window. I've done that a few times.

    Re: Propping Open a Window

    My apartment window in Burbank had the same issue. I drilled a hole into the window frame and stuck a small metal rod into it to keep it open. Problem solved!

    Also note that if you put your rod in a window, make sure it doesn't slam shut. It'd be tough to sell THAT at a half off sale.

    Duct Tape, card board.

    Wedge it with plastic or a dowel.
