Protecting Your Property In 4 Easy Steps

Protecting Your Property
In 4 Easy Steps

Measure

Measure the height and width of a window. Subtract 1/4" from each measurement leaving 1/8" clearance.

Cut

Cut your plywood 1/4" smaller than the window opening which allows 1/8" clearance all around.

Slide

Slide PLYLOX™ window clips on to opposing vertical edges of the plywood cover and make sure it fits tightly. 

Push

With the teeth towards you, against the brick, push the plywood sheet into the window casing. 

Step One

Measure Your Windows

    • Measure each window casing.
    • Work left-to-right, floor-by-floor.
  • The recorded height should be the measured height from top to bottom of the casing minus 1/4″. The recorded width should be the measured width from side to side of the casing minus 1/4″. This will give 1/8″ clearance all the way around.

Step Two

Cut The Plywood

  • Cut your plywood to the recorded size of each window.
  • Mark each cut piece with its label, such as FF1, the window at the left front of the house on the first floor.
  • If you keep the chart and label the plywood covers, you won’t need to label the casings.

For Tapered windows please see FAQ’s

Step Three

Slide Clips Onto Plywood

  • Place the PLYLOX™ clips on each plywood cover (if the window is 24″x24″ or smaller, only two PLYLOX™ clips are needed).
  • Each clip should be placed on the edge of the plywood cover no more than 24 inches apart.
  • Make sure the tension legs are facing toward you and your able to see the Plylox ™ name.

Step Four

Push Plywood Into Window

  • Push the plywood covers with the PLYLOX™ tension legs to the outside firmly into the casing.
  • PLYLOX™ clips lock the sheet securely in place.

Removing PLYLOX™ Clips Is Easy Too!

PLYLOX™ window clips are fantastic when you need them and easy to remove when you don't. Use them year after year. If you move, take them with you.

Remove, Store, Re-Use

You can remove PLYLOX™ clips quickly and easily. Just grasp the tension leg of the PLYLOX™ clip with your thumb and index finger and pull forward. This releases the PLYLOX™ and the plywood is easily removed. The PLYLOX™ clips can then be stored and reused the next time you need to protect your property. 

If clips are hard to remove with fingers, a screwdriver may be used to release tension on each clip.

Remove clips from the plywood and store the plywood flat, ready for reuse.
