Answer

Thank you for your interest in our Window Guards and Foot Operated Release kit. The relase cable must be installed via a hole in your exterior wall for the window guard release to work as designed. The Window Guards are intended to go on the exterior of your house and not the interior. I hope this information is helpful.

It works! Just need patience to make it work.
Installing the exterior hinge and locking mechanism was easy, just follow the install procedures. Now the interior install was a bit challenging. Removing the coil cover of the cable was hard coz you dont want to cut the cable inside. Make sure the coil cover does not touch the yellow kick lever. You have to pull the cable 1/2-1/3 before tightening the cable on the kick lever. This you have to try many times until both mechanism unlock at the same time. I would give it 5 stars but 4 stars for difficulty in the interior mechanism

They were much better than the Grisham window bar quick release unit. They fit much better than Grisham units. They are slightly costly than Grisham and I think there is huge demand or shortage of Grisham units for they were not available in my local Home Depots and had to get them from far away, but the locking mechanism did not lock at all and if it did it was at a weird angle. When I tried to return it to local Home Depots they would not accept it saying the bar code is not present in the store. This unit works nicely out of the box. I like it.

Not easy to assemble and the swinging side hinges should be welded into position so it will function correctly. I feel with a little more engineering it would work better

It was just installed today but I have come later because one bracket is missing and the screws are not included in the box. I will get the missing items that was shown in the box. The installer has to come back to finish the job once we get the missing items. Please check all the items before sale

These are not super-easy to install, but I'm an average do-it-yourselfer, and got it done. Follow the instructions. They work. You do have to be careful when you trim the cable sheath, so as not to cut the cable, but that cable is tough. If you touch it with the blade, you won't do harm, but try not to. I used a Dremel with a cutoff wheel. It was quick and easy. I had shelves and a chest in the way on my bedroom windows, so I couldn't make a straight shot install, kick plate directly beneath the cable, which is the best way. I put an S-curve in the cable, kick plate near the middle of the window, underneath. It works, but I soaked cable and cable sheath with White Lightning lubricant, a waxy PTFE stuff which works good for bike cables and should last for many years in this application. Some sort of grease on the cable would work too but it's messy and accumulates dirt over time. Slick cables work much better, and from the factory they are pretty dry. I bought two of them. Test them before you install them, which I didn't. One of them had enough corrosion inside on the lock plates that it wouldn't operate properly, brand new from the factory. It would open but not close. I was thinking "You dummy, now you've got to cut off the one-way bolt heads to remove this and take it back." But I hit the plates with spray lube and let it set for a half hour, then operated it a few dozen times. It works now. So, when the instructions tell you to test them several times, do it. I'd test them at least several times per year, maybe quarterly. If you have kids, that's a good fire drill for them. Kick that plate, open the window, punch that screen and get out. Keep them lubed with a good spray lube, especially if you live in a rainy, humid climate. Unique Home Designs, I'd pay a few extra bucks if those spring-loaded lock plates were stainless steel. Stronger and wouldn't rust. A few months after install, the cables stretched a little, and had to kick hard to get the the bars to release, so check and re-tension the cables if you need to.

They're ok
They work better for the small bars. It would be better if there wasn't so much play in the hinges, and seperate cable adjustments. Doing both at the same time is harder cuz they need to be just right. Oh yeah and springs so they pop out better.
