If you have windows that open, window locks and latches are extremely important for the safety of your home and family. Window latches ensure that
intruders are not able to open windows to get into your home, whether your family is home or not. Latches can also prevent young children from accidently
opening a window, which can be dangerous. At The Mine, we have a large selection of window latches to meet your needs.
The Mine offers window latches and sashes in a variety of finishes, so you should be able to find one that will match your existing window hardware. Most
homeowners will want to consider matching the finish of their window latch to their window frame, whether that be bronze, nickel, brass or white plastic.
Once you decide on your finish, you should consider which type of latch you would like. The Mine offers hook latches, barrel slide bolts, bar latches or
window sashes, all which work to secure your window. Some latches are keyless, while others come with the extra security of a keyed lock. Keyed locks are
harder for intruders to pry open, but can impede escape during an emergency. If you do choose a keyed window lock, consider keeping the key close to the
window so in the event of an emergency, you are not left searching for how to unlock the window.
