I am looking for a safe, practical and affordable option to secure our second floor double latch windows.I like to be able to open the windows a few inches, esp in the warmer weather. Ive read numerous archived threads but didn't find much on window wedges or locks. The gates were recommended (like Guardian angle)...but I am looking for something that is more discreet (not bars). Does anyone have experience with the Cresci window wedge? Those appear to serve our needs but the reviews are mixed on Amazon and the safety sales websites. Any other locks you'd recommend? Thanks!

It's not a window lock but a mesh in place of bars. http://www.amazon.com/KidCo-KID-S303-Kidco-Window-Guard/dp/B002H0JDPY
 

We use them in our house and are very happy with them and they aren't ugly like the bars.

We have these and I LOVE them. They are easy to remove so that you can open the window (if your window lifts from below you don't need to remove them at all), but they lock so that little hands can't unlock them.  Highly recommend.
