Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not made for heavy window bars Summary - The outside parts were easy to install, but the interior parts were more difficult. Once installed, opening the security bars caused them to fall to the ground and break the outside hinges so the bars cannot be reattached. Details: For outside mounting, the kit provides hinges for one side and spring-loaded locks for the other side of the window bars. Cables run from the outside lock to the inside wall (I had to buy an extra-long 7/16" drill bit for this), and down the wall to a kick plate that, if the kit worked as designed, when pushed with foot or hand, should pull the cables to open the lock and allow the window bars to swing outward like a door. The problem was that I found it very difficult to attach the wires securely to the kick plate - they kept slipping out of the provided "wire lock". Slipping wires would be an absolute disaster in an emergency where a person was trying to quickly exit the window. Having invested a lot of effort so far, I jerry-rigged the wires by wrapping and tying them around a bolt in the kick plate. Once I did get the wires tight enough by this method, I tested the kick plate as instructed. The outside locks successfully popped open, causing the entire window bar to fall off of the parts holding it to the outside wall, shearing off one of the hinges in the process. Perhaps my window bars are just too heavy for the kit, or perhaps the kit is just cheaply made and weak. But now I have no way to reattach the security bars. I will probably just wedge a piece of wood into the window so it can't be opened from the outside, while I search for another solution.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great The product works great, and the second one was easier to install because I disregarded the measurements in the instructions and just installed it to fit the actual parts.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not good quality parts Poor quality materials. The springs on this device are very week and flimsy. The connecting pieces are do not have an easy or snug fit. This is not made well at all.
