We have moved into a new house with uPVC windows which have push down locks which take keys. Unfortunately the previous owner has lost/removed all the keys. How can we go about getting these replaced? Do we need to have new locks fitted? Would this be a job for a window specialist or a locksmith?
Hi Jen, Most window locks are very simple and therefor not the best with this in mind I would recommend you try a couple of window showrooms they will more than likely give you them for free.
Hope the above was of use for you.
hi Jen,if they are push button to lock they need replacing as they are a fire risk.They are pretty easy to break open as it is only a small piece of alloy locking it in place.The cheapest way is get a handle off check length of spindle.buy off ebay and fit yourself only 2 screws.you can do this for about £5 a handle rather than £30 the locksmith will want cheers Gary
