You Will Need
- A window lock
- A screwdriver
- Pliers (optional)
Choose a lock
Choose a lock that suits your needs. Options include key-track stops, sliding-window locks, and bolts that lock casement windows in place.
Choose the position on the window's track or sill where you'd like the lock.
Depending on the style of lock, you will either need to clip it to the window frame or sill, or screw the lock to the track or sill to hold it in place.
Tighten the bolt
If you need to, use the pliers to make sure the lock is set tightly. This ensures that intruders don't get in and your little ones don't get out.
