This is indispensible for opening stuck windows! Review by Meryl Logue
You just have to have one of these. I'm also using them as I wear them out to cut through caulking around casings as I tear out old windows to rebuild them. I find it easier to control in some situations than a utility knife is. But for opening windows... the best. Don't use a scraper. This is a million times better, and gives you a better finished product. (Posted on 2/24/2014)
very helpful tool Review by ELS
I bought one from a local hardware store--it was much better for getting between the window frame and the sash than a knife or even a slim pry bar. To make life easy if the windows are painted shut put a non-volatile chemical stripper (like "3M Safest Stripper") on the window and let it sit as recommended. This tool will then slip pretty easily through the paint and between the window and sash. As you draw it down the window it will pull put any paint.

The blade is thin (about the thickness of a razor blade) and flexible--not brittle like a knife or razor blade and has embossed dots on it to help separate the window from the sash. The blade is at an angle to the handle which makes it possible to work where a knife won't.

I've used it on several windows so far and haven't been easy on it--seems quite durable. (Posted on 2/24/2014)
Almost impossible to find Review by Scott Berridge
Searched all over my town for this tool at every hardware store and paint around. Most of the clerks I talked with had never even heard of or had seen a tool like this. Now if I can just keep my wife from losing this one like she did the last one I had. (Posted on 2/24/2014)
Everyone needs this that owns and old house Review by Jamie Halverson
How do you rate this product?
Used this to unstick painted over windows in my 1920's house. Odd looking tool, wasn't too sure about it but it worked like a charm! It slipped in and broke up years of hardened paint so I could once again get the windows open. If you have a old house you need this in your tool box. (Posted on 2/24/2014)
Alternate use Review by Robert T. Anderson Jr.
How do you rate this product?
The standard use for this product is to cut loose painted shut windows. And I assisted in this standard use. But I also use it for an alternate use.
Weeding. Slide the triangle shape blade just under the surface of the earth under the weed and push. The weed is cut loose from its deep roots and is easy to pull. Works great.
The tool is well made and rugged and it works great for its intended purpose also. (Posted on 2/24/2014)
Works great Review by CBG
How do you rate this product?
As an amateur home improvement enthusiast (obviously very amateur since I painted my windows shut) I was amazed at how easy this tool is to use. Would recommend to anyone, very easy to use. You will probably need to do some touching up after you use it but at least your windows will open. This freed a stuck window in a matter of minutes - will not be struggling with a putty knife anymore. (Posted on 2/24/2014)
It works Review by Gordon Q. Hall

Absolutely invaluable when doing restoration work. This is my second one, the first got a little dull after twenty years. (Posted on 2/24/2014)
Inexpensive but effective tool Review by David M. Johnson
How do you rate this product?
I used the HYDE TOOLS #45200 Window Open Tool to open three windows that were painted shut on a 60+ year old house. On a prior attempt I used a standard utility knife,a putty knife, and a wood chisel without success. At a loss to open the stuck windows a professional house painter told me I needed the right tool for the job. I bought the Hyde tool on line. After "on the job" training I began to make headway. The tool had a spear point with "saw teeth" on the edges. A sawing action cut the old layers of paint on a wooden window frame. The blade is thin enough to work between the window and frame to cut through glue like old paint holding the window shut. A word to the wise, it only cuts paint, it won't take abuse from prying. The metal handle on mine cracked above the rivets. I used a borrowed "wonder" type blue pry bar to pry the window open, I don't remember the brand but it a more useful design than my old model pry bar. I used the excellent Bessey folding utility knife to cut a groove in the paint to start and finished up with the Hyde tool. I would buy another HYDE Window Open Tool without hesitation.
