Thought it may be helpful to list the current options available both to buy & DIY to make motorhome (& caravan) windows more secure - it's always good to see new ideas too.
We have had these for years & best we have tried so far https://lock-m-out.co.uk/en/ - easy to fit & remove with versions for both standard windows & sliding windows.

Spotted this but no link on where to buy it - does anyone know? Likely to be German as was featured in a article for that audience & priced at €35. Like that it uses existing holes & replaces the handle but maybe not suitable for quick exit in case of a fire.

When searching for the lock above spotted that there is now a plastic (PETG) 3D printed lock with a similar function to the Lock M Out steel ones https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/26539121...d=link&campid=5338547443&toolid=20001&mkevt=1 - well priced at £4 each plus £2 p&p per order - has anyone tried these? They have sold quite a few with good feedback & produced by a major company https://www.steelmans3d.com/3dprinting.html
I brought a couple a few weeks ago to give them a try, arrived within 2 days, fitted perfectly so another 8 ordered so each window have 2 fitted. Brought the bright orange ones, and boy are they bright. really obvious that they are fitted.

Good to have some feedback - have suggested to them that orange might not be the best colour as fine from outside but have to like it on the inside too! Do they fit over the handles with push buttons or are yours the kind without?

Mine are the bog standard Polyplastic handles without a push button. I expect they wouldn't fit a handle with a press button. Not overly bothered about the colour as they only take a few seconds to remove/replace.
