Closing without the pinch protection system

Monitor the closing process and make Danger of pinching
Monitor the closing process and make sure that the closing path of the window is clear; otherwise, injuries may result.◄

For example, if there is an external danger or if ice on the windows prevents a window from closing normally, proceed as follows:

1. Pull the switch past the resistance point and hold it there.

Pinch protection is limited and the window reopens slightly if the closing force exceeds a certain value.

2. Pull the switch past the resistance point again within approx. 4 seconds and hold it there.

The window closes without pinch protection.
