3. Toe-nailing or delicately pounding a 10-penny nail on two sides of the casing to hold it set up.
4. Leveling the casing for the substitution window utilizing the level with the goal that the window is level both vertically and evenly
5. Once the casing is set up, evacuating the toenailing and embeddings shims in no less than two spots while laying the level on the center of the edge.
