Portafold Windows

How do you replace the front window in a Portafold?.... I came crashing back in from the beer tent at the rally this weekend and forgot to undo one of the thumbscrews that holds the window up, and as I pulled the other side the frame tried to twist and broke the glass.....I think perspex might be safer...

Hi,

A friend of our's recently had some help putting up his Portafold with the result of a broken window, as some idiot climbed into the van to erect it. He has managed to get it replaced by some company in Petersfield - obviously too far away for you. Haven't had a chance to speak to him and just heard through the grapevine but if you want more details let me know and I can give him a ring.

Any specialist glass company should be able to replace it.

Good luck and drink less next time!!!! or close the window before you go to the beer tent!

Vanessa
