They are put on for a reason. Why do you want to take them off?

You need a precision tool like a hammer for that.

If you take them off it may effect your insurance.

At my uni they were generally there to a) stop you falling to your death out of the top floor windows or b) to stop people getting into the ground floor rooms. We had inspections and I think it was a £25 fine if they found you'd taken them off.

they can fine you for that you know and it's there for a good reason so I'd say keep it on?!

Yes I know all that but were on the 8th floor in Central London where the temperature is over 20c so you see our predicament - especially when we're cooking it's ridiculous.

I used to be able to remove mine with a sharp knife/fork but it's pretty hard to explain...

buy some cheap desk fans. Its cheaper to buy them then risk getting fined for taking them off. Think they are 7 quid each in argos.

It tends to hurt, when you fall out of an 8th floor window. That is why you have a restrictor. Leave it alone.

same was done to my window at uni (for stupid reasons, nothing to do with me personally or even my safety), i figured it out though. look closely on the restrictor there will the name of the company who makes them. usually Rezlok (or something like that) then google 'Rezlock window restrictor' i can guarantee you will then be able to find the model used for your window, purchase it (about £7) and the key that comes with it will match bingo. you can thank me later.

oh, but i take no responsibility for the fine/disciplinary action that may occur as a result.

9 years ago and i've literally just ordered a res-lok key off the internet. I will not be able to thank you later ... so thank you Sir Adds, for aiding the younger generation in juvenile delinquency.

It's such a joke having it at night with 25c room. having fan full speed with 12c outside doesn't cool anything.
