Remove alcam grid clip 55-182

A quick learner from Punta Gorda, Florida says:
I'm going to order some of these clips now however I would like to know if you have a special written instruction which shows how to install and remove the grills with these clips? I am always breaking them when I try to remove grills to wash windows. I have so many of these Alcam windows that the cost to replace them would be prohibitive. It could be that I'm doing something wrong. Am I missing something?

Thank you for posting. Unfortunately, due to the way Alcan designed these clips, they are not meant to be removed once they are installed. If you try to do so, they will break.
