The Jamb Spreader is a unique hand tool designed specifically for compression-jamb windows with tilting sashes. This patented tool significantly eases the task of tilting the sashes inward for cleaning. How? The Jamb Spreader provides you with the leverage to spread and hold the vinyl jambs apart, allowing you to simply pull the sashes inward, clean them, and then easily return them back to their places between the jamb liners.
