BonRich,

Great idea, this is one of the reasons that I wanted to get the info out. I know there are other ways to do this, well done.

No I am working on a good way to secure the windows, both fully closed, and partially open (3-4 inches), my wife cannot use the F locks due to arthritis might use wood dowels, not sure yet.

Awwwwww you are assuming they don't have a job. Don't forget some intruders had been in the house before. But I do like the idea of a sign, as long as it's in your window and not on your lawn. LOL
