The Window Cleaning Platform is, as implied, a window cleaning platform appearing in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, Grand Theft Auto IV and Grand Theft Auto V.


The Window Cleaning Platform is a conventional window cleaning platform that can ascend and descend the faces of skyscrapers and other large buildings to clean windows.

In Grand Theft Auto IV, window cleaning platforms are operable and featured on several buildings in Liberty City. Window cleaning platforms are used in three missions in GTA IV (Blood BrothersDeconstruction for Beginners, and Late Checkout) in which they are used to ascend buildings to gain a good sniping position or advantageous assault/escape, although the one from Late Checkout is taken down after completing it. Window platforms can also be used outside of missions. The player can control the movement (up or down) of the platform to ascend to the top of buildings.

In Grand Theft Auto V, there are few inaccessible platforms, as they are a few meters away from the roof. Even if accessed using a parachute, it is unusable. Also in GTA V, it appears in an assassination mission, where Franklin Clinton has to kill a juror in the Eclipse Medical Tower. Interestingly, the player can shoot one of the cables to detach one side of the platform and kill the juror.


The Window Cleaning Platform is considerably slow at climbing the various skyscrapers, during the mission Deconstruction for Beginners where the Window Cleaning Platform is officially introduced to the player, Niko will comment on the slow speed of the platform.


Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas

  • A non-operable wooden Window Cleaning Platform is present on the San Fierro Tower.

  • If the player exits the Window Cleaning Platform while it is between the top and bottom of a building, it will automatically descend the platform to ground.
  • In GTA IV, on the website, there is a forum post showing the location of all the platforms throughout the city.
  • Also in GTA IV, a temporary Window Cleaning Platforms appears behind the Majestic Hotel during the mission Late Checkout. It will disappear upon completion of the mission.
