Award-Winning Child Safety
At the Mother & Baby Awards 2020, the Jackloc Pro-5 Key-Locking Window Restrictor won the Silver award in the category Best Safety Product. Beating hundreds of other products available on the market, the Jackloc Window Restrictor impressed due to its simplicity and efficacy for window child proofing.
How Does the Pro-5 Window Restrictor Work?
The Jackloc Pro-5 features a simple and effective design that allows for easy window baby proofing. The restrictor consists of two parts that are connected via a cable, one part that you attach to the window and one part that you attach the the window frame. The cable stops the window from opening further than you would like, preventing accidents.

How Safe Is the Jackloc Pro-5?
The Jackloc Pro-5 Window Restrictor is designed to withstand a force of up to 3600 Newtons – to put this in perspective it takes 3600 Newtons of force to lift 367kg (or over 57 stone) so, unless your child can do that, they'll not be able to forcibly break the window restrictor. The restrictor can be detached via the supplied key, meaning that the window can be fully opened at your discretion but only for those with access to the key.
The Jackloc Pro-5 resists force and cannot be opened without a key
As well as having a reinforced zinc cable, the Jackloc Pro-5 features a patented five-disc locking barrel that makes it more childproof. While other models of window restrictor include a turning mechanism that could be undone by curious hands, the Pro-5 will only release when opened with the supplied key.
