    And then there's this guy's demo of his new tool.

    If you can't make it precise make it adjustable.

    That would classify as a big OOPS

    The guy raising the window on the ladder should have left well enough alone once it was up. since it is out of frame we don't have anyway of knowing why the window fell other than his jerking the up down control.
    You see those ladder lifts used to carry composition roofing up all the time

    My guess is a fake mishap.
    Why else would a seemingly fully functional human being put up a 2 x 4" triangular wedge outwards on top of the ladder hoist,
    and then resorting to force the window upward twice to really get it to topple over?
    Involuntary reveal in screengrab from when the cam also dives.
    -Why else even putting it online- Showing off your grand stupidity?

    -Aww - I'll give him the benefit of the doubt: as this supposedly was a demo, a window opening really isn't that necessary.

    That the window seems to have been pretty thoroughly used, in a color that went outta fashion 3 decades ago,
    makes me think it was expendable for this "open-ended test"... The pure necessity of the wooden wedge on top still eludes me.

    The driveway probably needed a cleanup anyhow - so why not waste a few hours work for a clickbait YT vid?
    Unless, of course: The guy IS a complete moron, or maybe just having the compulsion to portray himself as one.
    My personal rating: -"A for effort!"

    From the picture the brace looks to be an intentional deflector to guarantee the window to fall a further example of why I am beginning to think this was his briefly lowering then raising again,
