Help! I have three window a/c units but I am in a second apartment with vinyl replacement windows. How can I secure the units in the window so they will not crash to ground...I am not permitted to screw into the vinyl. Thank you for your help!

You need to see if you can get a set of bridging brackets to put on the underneath of the outside of the unit to support it against the building and take the stress off the window frame. You may need to get a maintence person from your complex to get up there and install them if you can get them. If they are not available you may be able to have someone fashion some up for you.

Thank you CIWS for your reply. I had thought of those brackets (although I did not know what they were called). Unfortunately, I do not live in an apartment building but on the second floor of a two family house that besides having new vinyl windows also has new vinyl siding. I am afraid that the brackets may dent or damage the siding. So I will continue to search for solutions......Thank you again!
