Hi there, i have a problem with a few of my windows, when i brought my house in sept i found out that a few of the keys were lost and i can't open 3 of my windows, what would be the most cost efficient way of dealing with this problem? I have been told that i could drill the locks, would that be ok.
sorry um replacement window companys might have removed windows similar to yours with the same type window lock try asking them they might have the same keys.
sorry I could not be of more help if you drill the handle you will have to replace anyway.
Options include call a locksmith as these locks are easy to pick.Alternatively force the handle open so you can get at the fixing screws then buy a replacement.Depending on what type it is you may be able to buy new keys for it in a locksmiths.
