The Solution to Preventing Tragic Window Falls. Consists of a set of removable steel bars designed to prevent children under the age of 5 from falling out of windows. Children have an eager desire to explore their surroundings. Sometimes this curiosity leads to dangerous situations. A child leaning against a window screen to see better outside is not unimaginable. The window screen will not keep a child safe from a fall. Made to protect children from these harmful moments and to give parents peace of mind that a tragic window fall will not occur in their home.
Durable steel construction is designed to withstand 150 pounds of pressure. End posts attach to window frame with screws so it is installed securely over the window. Emergency release buttons allow for quick removal. Key release guards are also available. Spacing between bars is less than 4 inches to prevent children from crawling through. Fits most styles of windows including single/double hung, sliders and casements. Sliding bars allow the guard to fit window widths and heights ranging from 14 inches up to 120 inches. Multiple guards can be stacked or installed next to each other to cover extra wide or extra high openings. Complies with American Society for Testing and Materials Standard for Window Fall Prevention Devices with Emergency Escape Release Mechanisms (ASTM F2090-01a). Easily installs into window frame with just a screwdriver or drill. Available in a glossy white, high-quality finish. Manufactured and assembled entirely in the U.S.A. Lifetime warranty. There is a 10% restocking fee for returned items on this page. Please allow 1-2 weeks for these items to reach you as they are shipped to you from the manufacturer. Drop ship.
How To Measure Single/Double Hung Windows:
(In a single/double hung window, the guard is usually installed so the sliding bars are horizontal and covers the entire width of the window. Single/Double hung windows consist of two separate window panels. The bottom window slides up to open. On a double hung window the top half also slides down.)
1) Measure the width inside of the window frame.
2) Measure the depth of the window frame where the posts will be mounted (inside right and left sides of window frame). If the depth of the window frame measures less than 3/4 inches, the guard will need to be mounted on the outside of the window frame (on the window trim or wall). Add at least 1-1/2 inches to the inside window frame measurement. (The extra 1-1/2 inches is the width of both side posts)
3) Measure the height of the window opening with the window fully open. The bar style will be determined by the height of the window.
How To Measure Casement or Sliding windows:
(In a sliding or casement window, the guard is usually installed so the sliding bars are vertical and covers the entire height of the window. Sliding windows consist of two separate window panels that slide horizontally to open. Sliding windows with one panel that slides are called single sliders. Windows in which both panels slide are called double sliders. Casement windows consist of one or two separate window panels that crank open. The window panels either open outwards to the side or outwards and up. In both cases, the entire window opening must be guarded.)
1) Measure the height inside of the window frame.
2) Measure the depth of the window frame where the posts will be mounted (inside top and bottom of window frame). If there are shades, blinds, etc. mounted in the frame that may interfere with the guard or if the depth of the window frame measures less than 3/4 inches, the guard will need to be mounted on the outside of the window frame (on the window trim or wall). Add at least 1-1/2 inches to the inside window frame height measurement. The extra 1-1/2 inches is the width of both end posts.
3) Measure the overall window width. The bar style will be determined by the width of the window.
