Some of our windows are locked but not all. I'm of the mind that if someone really wants to break into the house, they will so it's not worth getting too worried about it. I would rather be able to open my windows without too much hassle as and when I want some fresh air in the house!
Yes thank you, I get the picture now! I don't think I've seen anything like that before, just the lock on the handle. I like how some locks let you have the window a little bit open but still locked, so you can have fresh air and security! Sounds like your chocks do the same job :)
I don't really need too at this time, but I do with some.
If any one was to try to get in...they would be seen in the village I live.
We all know each other, so help would be on it's way for sure.
Hi Vee, have lived with houses' Grille'd all my life. They don't worry me at all. Have two exit doors from house. Easy to get to, & out. There's more chances of someone trying to break-in than a fire. That's statistically proven. House next door broken into recently, through glass window. Aluminium grilles' attached all windows' next day! Plus I'm very, very aware of my electrical products & ensure ALL switched OFF, plugs removed from point, when not in use. This I've done all my life. Have smoke alarms as well. My thanks, your concern........
Like Vee we have chocks on all our windows. When we bought our current home, my late husband made chocks for every window in the house (and there are a lot of them). It's great because you can just remove them when you are opening all the windows and sliding doors wide to air your home, and replace them when you go out.
