Window Locks

Nearly one child falls out of a window every week in Australia.

New regulations, guidelines and security devices can keep preschoolers out of trouble.

About 50 children fall out of windows and off balconies every year in Australia

 

Toddlers are too young to realise the potential risks.

Toddlers aged between one and four years-old are most at risk because they are curious and agile, but can’t understand the danger.

Falls usually happen in the child’s home, during spring and summer, when families leave windows permanently open.

  • Check that older window frames can support the weight of a child leaning against it.
