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.
