How many plastic window well cover locks do you need?

The exact number of security clips you need is determined by the size of your window well – just like any other accessories – window well ladders, decorative liners, and even basement windows. Here is our recommended number of quick-release window well locks based on your window well cover projection:

  • Up to 22″ projection – 3 locks
  • 22.01″ – 25″ – 4 locks
  • 25.01″ – 36″ – 5 locks
  • Over 36″ – 6 locks or more

How many window well grate locks do you need?

So, you have opted for a metal window well cover to stop debris from piling in your window well. Most aluminum grates are heavy enough to stay in place without the need for a locking mechanism. However, it would help if you still made sure intruders could not use your basement fire escape to break into your home. We have locks with housing that can only be opened from the inside for that specific purpose.

The metal window cover locks are slightly different from those for our unbreakable polycarbonate locks. They have a special housing that hides the security lock from intruders trying to reach inside the window well grate.

To secure a metal window well cover, you need a minimum amount of two locks, and then you scale accordingly for grates larger than 60″x30″ (respectively width and projection).

The unique cover style that we offer, called Atrium Dome, is custom-made for your window well sizes. It is manufactured to fit your well and allow crank-out windows to open effortlessly. We offer dome window well cover locks to secure this window well cover style.

Due to the size and style of the atrium dome, you would usually need two cover locks. If you have an extra-large item or aren’t sure how many locks to get, give us a call on 1-888-650-9355!
