Hi, guys. My name is Darrel, and I'm head of the tech team here at LocksOnline. Thanks for taking some time to tune in and have a look at one of our product review videos.
Now we do these short little videos to be able to give you, our customers, the opportunity to see the products in the flesh, so to speak, and be able to give you a little bit more information than perhaps the stock image and the descriptive text may give.
Today I want to talk to you about a range of window restrictors, primarily they're used on UPVC windows, but can actually be used on timber or aluminium framed windows as well. The idea is quite simple. You have two pieces. You have the piece that sits on the window here. As you can see, this has got a little knuckle on the on it. Now this size here is the standard industry 16 millimetres. I'll get some measurements on that in a second for you.
The idea is quite simple. When you put your key in here, this will be situated in the grove in the frame, and that allows you to push that in there like that. That allows you to sit that in like that. Now this is the part that's going to be on the window, or it could be on the window that way, depends on how whether or not you got a casement, or whether or not you got a fan-like type window. The idea is, that sits in there like that, that can slide up there like that, the key can be pulled out there like that, and now that window isn't going to open more than that restrictor will allow.
Now, depending on where you sit this, will depend on how far the window will be able to open. So the closer to the leading edge that you've got, then the shorter the window will open. Of course, the further up on the pivot or further in on the casement might be, then of course, then the end of the window can open a little bit more. I hope I'm explaining myself a little bit better there.
So the idea is, when the window then closes, this then would allow you to push up like that into the grove of the profile and it would sit then like that. So as you open the window, that would operate like that. I'm hoping that's explaining a little bit better to you than perhaps I am make the visual interpretation there and show it to you a little bit better.
So what it also has is an auto-lock feature, so therefore if there was a situation where the actual key wasn't there and it was in the open position, then effectively what would happen is when the window closes back in, that's going to push itself into this position here, and as it closes, this little knuckle here forces this bar up and actually closes it and locks it back into position like that. Did you get that on the video there? And that explains then, and I put that auto locking feature. Now of course now it's back locked again.
Now they come in two different hands, left hand and right hand, depending on the application for you. Or by all means, of course you might have one on the bottom of the casement, because this will actually sit at the bottom of the window, depending again on the handling for your particular application.
If you need a little bit more information on this or any of the products that we have, by all means, pop us over an email, use the live chat, or simply do it the old-fashioned way and pick up the phone and give us a call. Either way, we'd love to hear from you, and more importantly, we'd love to see you as a customer. Just to quickly mention. You need to consider some fixing screws for these. So from me, Darrel, and all of us here at the team, take care. We'll catch you real soon. Bye-bye.
