Addition Locks for Slider Vinyl window

A home owner from Illinois says:
I need to vent a portable air conditioner out a vinyl sliding window on a first floor. Is there any way to lock both sides of the slider so they cannot be opened from the outside?

Thanks

Thank you. Yes I did see that product but before I purchased it I wanted to be sure that it would work on a slider window.

I believe that it would work, however I'm just not sure that it will stop both sides from sliding. You may need to fix the exterior sash so that it is stationary.
