Use A 5-Way Tool

Use A 5-Way Tool

The use of our 5-Way Tool (TT-241) as a cutting guide can be very helpful for trainees as well as experienced installers. The 1/16” thickness of the plastic blade makes an ideal perimeter edge spacer. You can simply place the blade of the 5-Way Tool parallel with the window gasket. Hold the handle with one hand and your knife in the other. Starting at the top of the window, use your knife blade to begin cutting the film from the top. As your knife blade reaches the halfway point of the 5-Way Tool, you begin to simultaneously move the 5-Way Tool and your knife blade down the entire edge of the window gasket. When your 5-Way Tool reaches the bottom of the frame, you then continue moving the knife blade to the bottom of the frame to complete your cut.
