Now Secure The Window!
Don't invite unwanted guests into your home by leaving your windows unsecured. Thieves operate day and night.
Opening the windows to ventilate your home is important to prevent mould and damp. Secure your UPVC window by only opening to the first stage locking point. If you leave the room or the house, secure fully by locking the window with the key.
Speak to your accommodation provider if you are unsure about how to use the first stage locking point, or if keys are missing.
As part of the LSH terms of accreditation, accommodation providers should ensure that all ground floor windows should be fitted with window restrictors, with the exception of escape windows or where the Local Authority or Fire Authority have determined they should not be fitted.
