Window keys

Postby 0_Lisa_0 » Wed Aug 29, 2012 5:56 am

Can I buy a standard key for my windows? A couple of them have got locked on the latch (my sister did it by accident while we were away) so I can't shut them. I'm sure that I had one but I can't find it for the life of me! I don't know the brand if the windows or anything to help either, just that they are old :lol: so can I get one?

I think we might need to see the type of lock before you get an answer.

I've got UPVC windows that have 'yale' type keys but have also had locks which just need a standard shaped end to open the locks. These were older windows where the locks were added separately to the prop that holds the window open a certain distance.

They are double glazed with locks on the handle, so not old old iykwim. Some of them you press the lock part in to pull the handle up and open them and some you press the lock in to lock them :roll: (you can see how they now got accidentally locked :lol: )

I don't think they are standard unfortunately. Ours definitely aren't as each key only fits that specific window IYSWIM?

Locking windows are stupid. We have them all over the house and not one key!
