My tilt and turn window has dropped and will not close

Tilt and turn windows rarely have any issues but sometimes tilt & turn windows that are wider can sometimes drop as tilt and turns have very complicated locking mechanisms. This leads them to be heavier on one side of the window which can cause it to drop and this can stop your window from closing properly. But no need to worry just follow our simple two-step video/photo instructions below to successfully close your window until you can call a locksmith to come and fix the problem.
