Gadget to Keep Kids From Falling Out Windows

Window Safety Gadget

Thank goodness the heat wave has passed here in New England. With a heat index of over 110 degrees this past week, the heat was unbearable and the air stifling. It seems we New Englanders always have our windows closed between the bitter cold and the sweltering heat. Finally, some respite this week. I have kept the windows open throughout the house today to air it out and that reminded me of the nice people at Andersen Windows who offered to do a giveaway for a window gadget that keeps kids from falling out and hurting themselves.

    This looks great. I installed Anderson Double-hung windows through out our house before kids. Now we have a set of twin boys, who are fascinated by our windows. I have been looking for a elegant way to fix the lack of a locking device. I have tried suction cups, wedges and I almost drilled holes in the sash to put in pins. But it looks like Anderson has solved my issue. Is this contest still on? Thank you, Warren

    As a healthcare provider I understand the need for. Window safety. When choosing a window for our new home I was unaware that windows would not have safety locks. Our previous windows from a rival company included them. I would love to try them !!! Thanks. Erik

    I have all Anderson windows and two Anderson patio doors in my home. I have been looking for a window security / safety lock for some of my windows. This seems to be the answer. I would also like one for the patio doors that is recommended by Anderson. Look forward to installing them in my home. You have a first class product. Thanks for the time and be well. Rich
