GA1417-44, A Window Guard for Any Window Type With a 14-17 Inch Opening
Package of two window guard units. Mount this GA1417-44, 4 bar window guard Made in USA by Guardian Angel in any window whether it slides open, winds open or pushes up or pulls down. Child safety is easier with removable window guards to child proof homes and apartments. Guardian Angel child safety window guardsare made to stack horizontally or vertically. Extend the child window guard to fit an opening 14 inches to 17 inches wide or high. Use several units with the mounting bars butted together for wider or higher window openings. See our window wizard for help. Window bar height is 21 3/8 inches.
Four protective bars lock into side bars that extend two inches above and two inches below the top and bottom bars. Install the window guard so that there is no more than a 4 inch gap between the window sill and the first bar or the side of the window and the first bar.
Use a window stop to stop the window having more than a 4 inch gap: this keeps a pet or child from pushing out the screen and falling out the window. Check local regulations: a smaller gap may be required.
Mount each window guard in a single window or stack the guards side by side or one above the other to fill the area you want to protect. Each window guard locks into a pair of mounting bars. This means adults can release the bars to remove for window cleaning or escape from fires, earthquakes, etc.
Protect children from death or injury: window screens are not strong enough to protect a child. This GA1417-44 window guard can be used alone to protect on window opening 14 to 17 inches wide and 22 inches high. Or stack for higher or wider windows.

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, window 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.
Mounts for Guardian Angel window guards are designed to butt together so that only 4 inches are between protective bars. Vertical installations are usually between the screen and the window glass. Horizontal installations are on the sides of the window's interior frame or beyond the frame in the studs along the window's edge.

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 in conjunction with Window Guards for windows that open more than 22 inches.
