A window guard fire release is a safety feature that allows you to get out of your house in the event of an emergency. It’s important to know how to use this feature, as well as how to reset it if you need to. At J or J Welder, we design and make custom window guards using the best wrought iron materials available, While these iron bars look amazing on your home, they can make escaping in case of emergency difficult. Because of that, window guards are designed with release mechanisms that allow you to quickly remove the iron bars.

What is a Window Guard Fire Release?

A window guard fire release is a safety feature designed to help you escape in the event of a fire. It releases the bars on your window and allows you to open it, allowing you to get out of your home quickly.

How to Release a Window Guard Fire Release

If there is a fire in your home, the first thing you should do is get everyone out of the house as quickly as possible. Next, go to each window and look for a handle that looks like this:
When you find one, pull down on it with all your might until it releases, allowing you to open the window. Once all of your windows are open, drop down onto the ground below, then run away from the house as fast as possible!

How to Reset Your Window Guard Fire Release

It can happen that even after releasing your fire release mechanism, it does not return back into place. If this happens and your windows are still stuck closed after escaping from them, try resetting them by following these steps:

1) Press down on the button on top of the handle with your thumb.

2) Turn the handle counterclockwise until it stops moving and clicks into place (this will re-lock your window guard).

If at any point during normal use of your window guard fire release, it becomes jammed or somehow malfunctions, there are a few steps that can help resolve this issue. First, check to see if there are any obstructions in between the trigger mechanism and door handle on top of your device (if there aren’t any obstructions). If there are obstructions like dust bunnies or other small items stuck inside between those two parts then try blowing them out using compressed air (or something similar).
