Window Locks: Your Questions Answered

When it comes to locks, the first thing people think about is doors, but what about the windows in our homes?

Having substantial locks on the windows in our homes, offices and shops protects whatever’s on the inside.

Although locks can’t necessarily prevent burglaries, they can hinder them.

Many burglars have developed ways to break into a building through the windows without breaking the window pane, but if they see a lock, they’re less likely to make an attempt. 

Even if it doesn’t stop them all together, it can stop them in their tracks and increase the amount of time it takes to break in, giving you time to call the police. 

There are a few different types to choose from, which can make things confusing. 

Here at LockShop Direct, we’re dedicated to providing our customers with an easy and simple shopping experience.

Here are some common questions asked by customers when looking into replacing their window locks

Do I need a window lock?

The short answer is, yes. 

Locks on windows are an easy way to add security to your house, making you feel safer during the night or when you’re out. 

Burglars now have clever ways to test the security measures you have in place. 

Having quality locks on your windows can slow down break-ins, or even stop them altogether. 

Doing what you can to keep your belongings safe gives your family peace of mind when you’re not there, especially for longer periods of time. 

How do I choose a window lock?

At LockShop Direct, we have a wide range of window locks to choose from.

Some of the most popular ones are:

  • Handle locks
  • Push locks 
  • Snap locks 
  • Sash window locks 

These are all available in a wide range of colours and finishes to suit your home and its existing features. 

It’s important that you choose a lock based on the window itself, taking features like the quality of glass and what material the window is made out of into consideration. 

Having a combination of robust materials and reliable locks, you can limit the risk of theft while creating a timeless look.

If you’re having trouble choosing the one that’s right for you, get in touch now for expert advice. 

How do I install a window lock?

Installing any type of lock is a tricky job. 

If not done correctly, it will ruin the effectiveness of the lock itself and could even damage the materials the window is made of. 

This is why we recommend using a professional locksmith to fit and install any locks you purchase. They’ll know how to fit your choice of lock without damaging the character of your existing window.
