high windows - how to crank open?

Posted by mjlb (My Page) on

Short of a tall ladder, has anyone seen a device to crank open high windows? These windows are awning style, but the crank mechanism is the same as typically used on a casement window.

I'm imagining something like the extension rods used for changing high light bulbs, or washing high windows. But it does seem this is more difficult due to the need to rotate the crank.

Thanks! (posted on home decorating forum before I remembered there is a window forum)

Truth hardware makes all types of hardware for this type of application. They only sell through distributors, which ship all over North America.
