    We searched online for anything that could make our motorhome windows more secure & finally found the Lock M Out. Having just fitted 2 of these we have just ordered more for all the windows as they work really well & no need to drill! They are easy to take on & off & cost us £12 for 2 including delivery. There are 2 types to fit either Polyplastic (RH only) or Seitz (LH & RH) handles which are steel & look smart in black paint finish with a neat label which can be removed easily if not wanted. We have used Milenco Sleep Safe alarms on our caravans in the past but having seen how easy it is to open the windows we wanted to make forcing entry more difficult too. See http://www.worldofmotorhomes.com/outside-van/vehicle-extras/lock-m-out & if you click on the Video Link it shows the device working. We found their Twitter page useful too to figure out which handles we have https://twitter.com/LockMOut . We aren't on commission but thought other Funsters might find these security devices useful too!

    Hi, Must agree with you. We bought some last summer at the show in Cheshire. A very simple but effective window lock.
    Cheers

    We are definitely not connected in any way! We bought 2 of these to try as you rightly say in December then packed them away with all the other motorhome accessories that we were buying & with Xmas, selling our caravan & towcar & family life having been pretty frantic for us ever since we have only now got around to sorting & fitting all our new toys! We have found the posts on here really useful when it came to deciding what accessories to buy & just wanted to share our findings so it might help someone else especially as we think it is a great little product that fills a real gap in the market.

    without prejudice, can i suggest you read TRADER? READ THIS on the top blue task bar and send Jim a PM to check if you qualify as a trader funster.

    My window catches have buttons on the handles that you have to press in to turn the handle, so not easily opened from the outside. Probably just means they'll break the window instead :Sad:

    many are made of plastic so locking them with the button will have little effect.......they will simply break if a lever, or indeed fingers, is inserted in the window frame and pulled hard enough.

    I think that it loos to be another good deterrent but as we all know if the gits want in they will get in. Only thing being the harder it is to get in the more chance they have of making noise or having to take a bit longer. Might be enough to discourage them. I've enquired about these. Might be good if they came with a window sticker as well.

    Hi - there is a red & white sticker with "Lock M Out" on the side of the locking device that can be seen through the window - the video shows it facing the inside but it actually comes with it facing the outside. Hope that makes sense - not had my first cup of tea of the day yet!

    Windows are recessed so anything other than a very thin lever would break the window anyway. You certainly couldn't get fingers in.

    1 they have now shown anyone that did not know how to gain access

    2 what is to stop the rod being slid in and pushing the plate off the handle first?It seemed to me to go on and off the handle easily

    The video is disconcerting but showing how insecure the windows are is doing caravan & motorhome owners that didn't realise it (like us!) a favour & those who have criminal intent would probably know how to break in already.
    We have ours fitted on our handles now & although they are quick & easy to put on & take off once in place they are a very snug fit & can't see any way that they could be levered off from outside. They have been designed specifically for either Polyplastic or Seitz handles so a bespoke fit not a multi purpose item.
    We only bought 2 to try at first but now have them fitted to all our window handles so you can tell we are fans of this product - just wish we had thought of it first!

    Just went out and checked mine and it's right even though they have the button on them dead simple to open from outside. :Eeek::Eeek:
    Never realised, so my deadlocks and straps on doors are a waste of time.:Doh:

    Those window locks that Funsters, Chris and Carol sell (Lock em Out) are simple and they work. Its nice when both terms 'cheap' and 'effective' can be used when talking about a product:thumb:
