For many people, having high-quality locks on their doors is an obvious element of their home security. But unfortunately, there are many households and businesses out there who seem to have forgotten that windows are an easy entry point for burglars and unwanted visitors, perhaps even easier than a door. That’s why putting window locks in your home can help ensure your safety, as well as the safety of your family and your valuables.
Why Install Window Locks?
If someone is trying to break into your home or business, and there are no window locks on the windows, breaking the glass enough to reach in and open the window is generally a quick and easy task, particularly if no one is home. However, if the windows are secured with window locks, the intruder must take the extra time to break the glass and remove enough of it to ensure that they do not badly cut themselves on the way in. This can buy you or a friendly neighbour enough time to realise what is happening and phone the police.
Oftentimes it is best to install locks on all windows as most burglars will not be deterred if the first or second attempt at entering is unsuccessful and may try all the windows they can access to see if any are unlocked/do not have locks.
There are many other options to secure your windows such as reinforced glass, window bars, or window alarm systems, but installing locks are a simple and powerful way to keep intruders at bay.
Which locks are right for me?
Choosing which window lock is right for you will mostly depend on the type of window and fitting you are looking to install the lock onto.
