Tips on locks for your home windows

It is rare to find windows that have built-in security locks in their design. To keep your home safe and sound, it may be a good idea to install locks on your house windows by consulting a locksmith. The following article offers some top tips on keeping your windows, and your home, safe and sound.

Tips on window locks

  1. Install locks on any windows that are easily accessible, such as those on the ground floor.
  2. Consult with a master locksmith to determine the best quality lock for your windows.
  3. For safety, windows should not be able to be lifted from their tracks.
  4. Consider using dead bolts with removable thumb latches on easily accessible doors that are near windows. In this way, even if an intruder makes it through a window, the door will still be bolted.
  5. It may sound simple, but always lock your windows before leaving the house, or before going to bed at night.
  6. Consider replacing glass windows, which are highly breakable, with more durable materials.
  7. Grill or bar louvre-style windows will not protect locks from being broken.
  8. External roller windows and French shutters have the ability to lock internally.
