Child Safety Window Guard for Small Windows 14 to 17 Inch High or Wide
Use this Made in USA white powder coated steel Guardian Angel window guard to protect children and animals from falls through open windows that are narrow in width or height. To escape from fires, just push the four quick release buttons, two on each side of the window guard. Then remove the child safety bars from the side or top mounts. The GA-1417-43 has three bars spaced 3 7/8 inches apart. Each unit expands from 14 to 17 inches. The windowguard locks into mounting bars with two inches from the
bottom bar to the end of the mount and the same, from the top bar.
Mount this child safety window guard either vertically or horizontally depending upon the type of window. All sliders and roll-out casements require vertical mounting. Protect the window opening for a window that slides up and down to open and close: use window stops or protect the whole window.
This is not a home security window guard: it cannot be locked with a lock. In an emergency, an adult or older child pushes button locks near the mounting bars to reduce the size of the safety guard bars. The entire guard then is removed from the mounts for escape.
Window guards remove easily from inside or outside a window. Guardian Angel II window guards are made from strong, steel tubing powder coated with a durable, lead-free white paint. For baby and child safety, install window guards on any window more than 12 feet above ground level, windows 2nd through 6th story, or at any level where a child could fall or climb through an open window. Window screens are not strong enough to keep children safe from window falls.

How to measure for child safety window guards:
Identify window type. VERTICAL: The window opens by sliding a panel to the side in a track, cranking a panel out or pulling or pushing a panel of glass in or out. Guards for vertical windows are mounted like prison bars to protect either the entire window opening or the entire window. SINGLE HUNG : The lower window panel moves up and down in a track. DOUBLE HUNG : Both the upper and the lower window panels move up and down, each in its own track. For Single or Double hung windows, customers usually protect only the window opening. This is done with a single guard with a window stop to keep the window from opening above the top of the mounting bar. To protect both panes, vertical guards can be mounted side by side or stacked like a ladder.
Decide where to mount window guards: Inside the window frame or extending beyond the frame with mounting bars in the studs.
Use a tape measure to measure interior width of the window frame or beyond the frame for stud mounting.
Push the bottom window panel up until it stops or push the panel to the side to measure the entire physical opening .
Treat a double or single hung window like a vertical if you wish to cover the entire window. Send us e-mail with the dimensions and we'll assist you.
Compare measurements with chart below. Guards "telescope" like curtain rods, locking into the side or top mounting bars. Guardian Angel II window guards are not spring-loaded. For unusual windows or for larger quantities of guards, fax specs or drawings to SafeHomeProducts.com.
NOTES: Window guards do NOT substitute for adequate supervision. Child safety requires mature persons establishing and supervising children in a safe environment.
Window guards MUST protect the entire OPEN portion of window or panel for baby safety.
No space greater than 4 inches is allowed according to ASTM PS 120.
Use window stops (such as Super Stoppers) in conjunction with Window Guards for windows that open more than 22 inches.
