    Hi

    Can anyone help with window locks for he M/H please? What is the best type etc.

    Our baby sleeps at the back on his own and i'm worried he could be pinched in the night through the window:Eeek:. I know it is unlikely but I would rather spend a few quid and have peace of mind. You know what it's like when you have had a few vinos and are knackered we would probably not hear a thing.

    These windows are dead easy to open from the outside don't know if they are all like that?

    Thanks in advance :thumb:

    For the best advice on locks give Harrison Locks a ring.

    They are sponsors on this site and one of the nicest and most professional firms I have ever had the pleasure of dealing with.

    Difficult to secure a plastic window but easy to fit an alarm. Maplin and the like do "hotel" door alarms.

    I can picture a door security chain being adapted so that the window will not open far, and by then the alarm triggers.

    My last motorhome had a "picture window" which just at the right hight for someone to break into and climb into the accomodation, so I made a security grill from 12mm X 5mm flat bar and screwed it to the inside of the window frame, very neat and it was a selling point when I came to sell it.
