Video transcript

If your window handle has come a little loose it might just need a quick tighten. To do this just remove the screw cover. Your handle will have one or two screw covers. Pull up the handle to see if you have one on the lower section and remove it if there is one. Once the screw cover is removed, tighten the exposed screw until its firmly in place, taking care not to over tighten. Do the same with the screw at the top. Replace the caps, making sure they're in firmly so the handle can turn easily. Some window designs may require someone outside the window to counter the force.
