Review Of Lockable Window Restrictors from Insight Security.

lockable window restrictorsMy brother needed to get some Lockable Window Restrictors for his family home and I said to him that I knew just the company that would have them –  Insight Security!

I have reviewed for them before so I thought I’d see if they would like to send my brother a few window restrictors for me to feature on my blog and the lovely team at Insight Security said yes and sent him the 3 that he needed….Thank you so much Chris and team!

The window restrictors haven’t yet been put on my brother’s windows as he is still in the process of renovating the house but we have had a good look at the restrictors and they appear to be simple to use! Take a look at the photo above.

The restrictors are £8.95 each (excluding VAT) and they come loose in a plastic zip-lock bag along with a printed sheet of fitting instructions. You can also view them on the link below –>

These lockable window restrictors are suitable for use on all kinds of windows (and even doors) including uPVC, aluminium, wooden and metal profiles and they exceed the strength requirements of EN 16281.

To fit these window restrictors basically you drill holes in the fixed  central frame part of window (see photo above) and also on the part that opens wide and then you screw the restrictor onto the window. It can then be locked with the supplied key so a child can’t undo it – thus possibly falling out of the window – however with the restrictor locked into position the window can still be opened enough for fresh air to get into the house to circulate.
