Window Locks

When you’re purchasing a security package for your home, protecting the front door is usually the first priority. But you shouldn’t neglect your windows! In fact, window locks are a major part of your overall security at home. Without them, an intruder can easily enter the premises, regardless of how advanced your front door lock system is. This is especially true if you have lots of windows on the first floor—which can also be dangerous with small children around.

So if you’re looking to protect your family and property with state-of-the-art lock systems, don’t forget the window locks. The experts at Baldino’s Lock & Key can help you select the best products to meet your needs and expertly install them for you so you don’t have to worry about a thing—contact us today to schedule a consultation in Maryland, Virginia, or Washington, D.C.!

Benefits of Window Locks

If you secure your front door but leave your windows unprotected, it makes them an easy target for thieves looking to take advantage of any opportunity. Fortunately, window locks can give you the extra coverage you need. They can help you:

  • Prevent intruders from entering through a window
  • Keep children from falling out (or sneaking out)
  • Provide you with peace of mind
  • And more!

Types of Window Locks

Now that you’ve seen the benefits window locks have to offer, it’s time to consider your options. There are many different variations to choose from depending on what types of windows you have, but here are some popular types to think about:

  • Keyed sash window locks. This type of lock system tends to work well with double-hung windows. Typically, the lock will be mounted on the side of the window or window sash; it will need to be opened with a key and removed for the window to open.
  • Sliding window locks. You can install this type of lock on the window to keep it from sliding or mount it on the side of the track to prevent movement. You can also opt to have sliding window locks keyed so that a key is required to move or open the window.
  • Hinged wedge locks. Typically used on double-hung windows, this type of lock prevents your window from opening past where the lock is installed.
  • Window latch locks. This is one of the most popular options for windows. Here, the lock attaches to one window, securely connecting to the other when closed.
  • Folding locks. This type of lock is mounted on the top of a double-hung window, allowing it to open only slightly.

Keep in mind that the type of lock you choose is dependent on what style and material of window you have—our locksmiths will help you narrow down your options!
