uPVC Window Lock Repairs at a Glance
Window locks have two principal components.
The handles often have locks, but these do not entirely secure the window from external access. They merely prevent anyone already in the property from opening the window.
The lock to secure the window may be a ‘cockspur’ handle with a nose that engages over the frame, though these are not widely used for new, modern frames. 
The common method of locking a window is the ‘espagnolette’, which is operated by the handle and has two or three rollers or ‘mushroom bolts’ that engage with the frame to lock.
An alternative is a separate ‘gearbox’ behind the handle. When turning the handle, the gearbox drives a pair of ‘shoot rods’ that engage into the top and bottom of the frame.
All these types of double glazing window locks are largely replaceable, although sometimes with slight modifications where designs have changed.
