Window Wedge - Cresci Products - 2 Pack
The only thing standing between you and your child having a "Falling Out." The Window Wedge with the Slip-Resistant Base, was designed and tested to act as an Adjustable Window Stop for double hung, single hung, and horizontal sliding windows. The Window Wedge is made of durable, impact resistant, ABS Plastic and has a tapered groove on the bottom that holds a strip of (Velcro® Brand) hook material that mates with an 8 inch strip of (Velcro® Brand) peel and stick loop material. The stop wedges itself between the part of the window being opened and the part that is stationary, wedging the window to stop opening. It can be used to keep the window 100% closed or you set it to be open for a certain number of inches. For Child Safety, the maximum window opening should not exceed 4 inches.
The loop material easily attaches to the window frame (See Directions) without the use of tools. The Window Wedge is then placed over the loop strip and pressed down at the desired window opening location.
This product is not a substitute for Adult Supervision or even window locks. Never leave a child unattended. AKA, never sleep again!

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
Q: What are the dimensions of the Window Wedge?
A: They are ¾” wide. The window frame (stile) needs to be at least 3/4" in width to install the wedge.
Q: How do you attach the Window Wedge?
A: The Window Wedge comes with hook and loop strips with adhesive backing -- no nails, no screws, no tools required.
Q: Can I use it on the top part of the window too?
A: Yes, they can be used for placement on the top window section that pulls down too in addition to the bottom part of your window that pulls up.
Q: What does a window wedge do?
A: Window wedges limit the height your window can go up.
Q: How do you stop a window from opening all the way?
A: By setting your window wedge to only open up to 4 inches maximum or less. With the window in closed position, first clean and then dry the window. Then pull off the adhesive (loop strip), place it onto the window, and attach the window wedge to the loop strip on your window where it is restricting the window from opening no more than a few inches.
Q: How do you stop a child from opening a window?
A: In addition to window locks, a window stop (also known as a wedge) can be installed. Never trust a screen to keep your child safe. Make sure it’s set so that the child cannot stick his or her head through or crawl into the window space that is open.
Q: Can they be quickly removed in case window is needed as a fire escape?
A: Yes, you can easily remove them in case of an emergency. How to remove it? Close the window, then remove the window wedge from the strip (inside part of the window). You will be able to open the window.
Q: Will this window lock work on old-fashioned wooden sash windows or only on modern aluminum windows?
A: Yes, this window stopper also works on wooden sash windows.
Q: My child’s room has very low windows, would he be able to pull the wedge off the hook and loop strips?
A: It depends on your child’s age and strength. If your child is 17 years old or a mini Superman, then he/she might be able to pull it off. Typically, though, it holds up to most children under 4 years old. Your child might be the next weightlifting Olympic gold medalist, however, so please note that this product is not a substitute for adult supervision. Never leave your child unattended.
Q: Are there any security benefits to using this product?
A: While a wedge is not designed specifically for security, it will deter criminals, as it will be much harder to gain entry to a residence or building with a window wedge installed.
