there is an interesting fact that i want to share with you guys first, alright
and the first fact is 6 out of 10 burglaries begin with entry trough the window
at the back of the house, alright so that’s the most important thing
that i just wanted to share with you guys and to prevent this from happening
you should use the following: there are basically 3 ways to go around it.
The first way is to obviously have A locking casement stay used on
the outward opening windows. The stay is fixed to the bottom
of the opening window and the pins are fitted to the frame.
So, The stay fits over the pins and is locked and released by use of a key.
The second tip is: A locking casement fastener used
on outward opening windows. The fastener is fitted to the side of
the of the opening window and the wedge or keep is fitted to the frame.
The fastener is locked and released by use of a key.
