Need a key for locked windows please !

Just moved into a new house that was vacant for a while. Unfortunately most of the windows are locked and no key was provided. A local locksmith said that these are a very old -fashioned type and not in use now.....and he could not locate any key for me. He says the key would be long and skinny.

I have attached 2 photos with window handle locked and one of the lucky ones that actually open still ! Two buttons and one key on these window handles. Can anyone help me please ?

Many thanks !

Sissie sounds like you are a girl .... or a guy who is well... a sissie - but in either case you will have a hair grip which can normally be used to open the lock with the help of a screwdriver to turn it.

Your pictures are not attached, so otherwise just take the handles off and fit some new ones

I changed the brackets from [ ] to { } so it will not work
