Having these locks supplied and installed by a locksmith will cost $40$50 per window.
This type of window is just normal for some cleaners but what if you cant hire someone to do it for you? How do you clean it? Cleaning sliding windows is almost the same as cleaning an ordinary window. The only difference is how you remove them and clean it. Here are the steps that can help you. Prepare All the Needed Materials. Having all the materials readily accessible can save time and effort. You wont be wasting any time getting the materials in every part of the house.
Sliding window locks are often called vent locks as they allow the window to be locked slightly open for ventilation. The recommended gap is 100mm but never have more than 150mm. The theory is that if a head can get through a window a person can squeeze through. The venting position is not as secure as when the window is shut and locked. Therefore you should only leave your windows locked open you are at home.
