    A:  Thanks for your interest in our Foot Operated Release Kit for window guards. Unfortunately, we do not offer a release mechanism that you are asking about. We suggest you speak with a hardware associate at your local Home Depot store. I hope this information is helpful.

      Q:Why doesn't the video show the installation of the release cable into the house wall + the kick pedal. Another vendor's video does show this. My concern is that the kick-pedal might not release in an emergency.

      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

      I bought three of these to put on my bedroom windows. I got the Release for the first window COMPLETELY installed. When I went to test the action of the Kick Plate, the cable controlling the upper release BROKE inside the top unit. There is NO WAY to get inside the unit to repair it, and no way to get the Window Guard open, so I had to grind off the heads of the one-way screws, swap the broken part with the unused part from the second unit, and return the first unit to Home Depot for a refund. It would be a REAL DISASTER if the cable were to break during a REAL fire and trap one of my loved ones in the bedroom. Manufacturer needs to make this unit stronger so it won't fail in an emergency.

      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
