My tilt and turn window is stuck in the tilt position

Tilt and turn are a popular window option that opens both into the room for easy cleaning and tilts inwards enabling secure ventilation. A downside to these windows is the double opening mechanism that enables them to both open and tilt can become jammed with the window both in the tilt and the open position. This happens when a trigger button which releases the tilt mechanism is pressed when cleaning for example. If this occurs we recommend you do not attempt to close the window or the hinges will become buckled. However, this is very easy to fix with no tools.
