I have replaced the handels & gearboxes on th upvs windows as the previous owner never opened them and they were stuck.
I have them working now 100% but when i close the window and try to pull the handle down to lock it the force to do so is very very hard/tight.
If i remove the metal keep that is screwed into the window the operation is like it should be,nice and smooth.
Please advise what i need to do to the metal keep in order for it to be working correctly.
