Hi guys, my name is Darrel, and I'm head of the tech team here at LocksOnline.co.uk. Thanks for taking some time to tune in, and have a look at one of our product review videos.
And today we're talking about a product that's manufactured by the company, Era. It's their locking handle that's designed for wooden windows. It's the 808 locking handle. It comes in three different finishes. It comes in a brass-effect finish, white, and also there's a special order on a chrome version as well.
This is the actual locking handle itself that would obviously go on to the window. Now as you can see there, you'll notice that it has two different cut outs. And the idea of that is it allows you to lock the window in a ventilated position.
This is the actual keep. This is the part that will actually sit down on the frame, and of course they're not going to have you sit on there. Or it can sit in the other one, and allow it then for you to have a little bit of gap to allow a little bit of ventilation. And of course the benefit with this particular setup is that you can actually lock it in a ventilated position. That really trumps up in that respect.
Now it's simple to operate as you can see there. You just move the handle out of the way. That will sit there like that. Open the window, and then when you come to close it then again, you can close it in to either the locked position or the vented position. Turn the key, pull the key out, and now it's in the locked position. No problem at all.
Now it comes as well with this little plate, and the plate is designed that if you've got a slight chamfer to the side of your window. It allows you to put this plate on there -- if you can zoom in there -- to take up that chamfer. So therefore then this will always sit at right angles to the actual handle itself.
Now to give yourself some sort of an idea-I don't know if you can zoom in close enough-but this is the actual cover here, and as you can see -- I don't know if you can zoom in on that square there just a little bit -- that gives you a little bit more of an interpretation as to what it would look like. Maybe the zoom can't get in to enough detail there. But that's basically how it would be fitted on to a wooden window.
It's ideal as a replacement lock, and you can get them for a whole range of windows, if you want, throughout your house. One of the advantages also is that you can get it all on the same key. One key will fit all of the complete range. If you've got white windows to the back of the house, and wooden-effect finish windows to the front of the house. You can in fact buy some white handles, buy some brass handles, and have it all on the same key. That's one of the top trumps when it comes to this particular model.
Now this particular handle has been on the market for a considerable amount of years which obviously demonstrates that it's a tried and tested and proofed system when it comes to wanting to secure your windows. Simple, take off the old one. Put this one on. You now have a lockable handle.
I'm going to get some measurements out for you, so you can get an idea of the footprint. If I was to look at this as being the base plate there, the overall length of that there is 60 millimetres from the top to the bottom, and it's width there is 15 millimetres across there. From the window to the first position there is about 12 millimetres, and then to the second position there it's just a smidgen over 20 millimetres there. Just to give you some sort of idea that you should be able to move them in roughly about 10 millimetres for better ventilation.
It also comes with the fixing screws as well. Fair dues, they actually are quite significant fixing screws. You actually pop that in to there. There's a lot of screw going in to the actual frame there to keep it strong and secure.
There you go, guys. Let me just get a quick measurement on this as well for you. The width of that there is 12 millimetres, and the length there is 41 millimetres, and the fixing centre's there, just in case you think at all this might be the handle you want to replace because it's broken. I get the fixing centre there that run about 29 millimetres. Check to see whether or not-if it's a replacement that you're looking for, whether or not the fixing centre's about what I just specified.
