A NEWLY REPORTED METHOD OF POTENTIALLY STOPPING uPVC WINDOWS FROM LOCKING!!
There has been a new report on one of the DN NHW Facebook pages, reporting the use of a wooden pencil that is placed in the rain gully guards, to prevent owners being able to fully close and lock ground floor windows.
I am not technically competent on uPVC window manufacturing to state if this is a real threat, and could be used to prise open a window, but it is worth letting people know that if you have left a window open during the day, check for no debris having been placed in that gully area on part airflow locks, so that your windows are still safe and secure to lock when going to bed at night.
THIS MAY BE JUST A SCARE REPORT, AND NOT TOTALLY RELEVANT TO ALL MAKES AND AGES OF WINDOWS, BUT STILL WORTH LOOKING AT EACH NIGHT !
