Foreseeing trouble will help reduce its result to zero. In order to prevent accidents with children in the event of their falling out of an open window, it is necessary to take maximum measures to prevent this situation. One measure, in the form of installing a child lock, should not be limited.
Along with gluing a protective film against inadvertent glass breakage and installing external metal grilles, it is necessary to install a locking mechanism on the window sashes.
For the safety of the baby, all measures will be good.
The development of technology in the field of windows for the home has led to an improvement in product quality and at the same time to simplify the use of the mechanical part. The latch system has been completely replaced with a simple single locking mechanism with a handle.
Even a small child can use it. This simplicity has become a negative factor in the progress in the production of window fittings, creating the danger of causing harm by negligence for young children.
To address this problem, a number of additional locking mechanisms were urgently developed.
They serve as a reliable obstacle for a child to open the window, but do not interfere with the functional performance of the system for ventilation and maintenance of the structure.
From this position without a key, it will not work to open or return the sash to the opposite position.
The disadvantage of this lock is the need to have a key with you and not one, but in an amount equal to the number of windows with such a mechanism. Difficulties may arise in case of loss or in case of emergency. It is important to have a separate and not accessible place for storing keys.
We need constant monitoring so as not to leave the key in the lock.
The inconvenience, in this case, is only in determining the hidden place for storing keys. Installation entails a violation of the integrity of the window structure.
The key must also be in a certain place out of the reach of children. Installation entails a violation of the integrity of the lock structure.
The advantage of this design can be considered cheapness, simplicity and the ability to open all windows with one handle.
The inconvenience lies in the bulkiness of the handle as a storage item.
Such a lock is installed on budget windows without a folding sash mechanism.
The only inconvenience is the keys.
Installation entails violation of the integrity of the window structure.
These mechanisms are metal or plastic slats that are attached by the main hinge device to the window frame. The strips themselves have slots with clips at a certain distance from each other.
With their help, they engage in a hook with a latch attached to the sash. Slots allow you to hold the transom at different angles.
Such mechanisms are installed at different levels of the window.
Such locks are less reliable compared to locks, but in combination with other devices that ensure child safety, they give a positive result.
Attention! All of these devices are not only suitable for tilt-and-turn windows, but are also fully suitable for use on sliding windows, both horizontal and vertical.
Saving on the safety of your own and your children is a bad option. It is necessary to take the full range of measures and not be limited to only one level of protection. Each element in the complex will bring peace and confidence that everything is under complete control.
The use of self-made devices is not recommended. It is better to trust in this matter professional manufacturers with proven quality.
