    I have these on most of my windows(!!) - I know they are a bodge to make dodgy windows close....

    I would like some more like the one in the picture (approx 15mm high) - probably 2 would be enough...maybe 4...

    I got given some by a dg supply company -but they are not so high ...

    Does anyone know where I can get them? Or even their proper name so I can track some down...

    Thanks

    Here you go, they are called run up blocks or riser blocks......good name for them really........

    http://www.captiveclosures.com/glazing_accessories/runupblocks.htm

    They are frame or profile specific so unless you know what make of profile section you have then you'll have to rely on just measuring the heights of the blocks

    Hope this helps

    Next please :D
