Simple window lock

I've been trying to think of a simple way of locking my windows from the inside, and I came across these slide locks at Home Depot:

Prime-Line Aluminum Secondary Window Locks (4-Pack)-U 9823 - The Home Depot

Grabbed a pack, and they work like a champ. For added security you could drill a small hole through the window frame where the screw contacts it.

I found it to be a simple fix for me.

Great thought!! We're almost done with body work and this is something that's been on my mind a bit - another thing to add to the list!

Plus, it'll keep the windows from dropping down on their own accord.

Wish I woulda thunka that!

That was my main reason for getting them. My bus lives in my fenced in side yard, not worried about locking it yet, but I hated coming out to the bus after a rainstorm and finding one of the windows had dropped down on its own!
