A home owner from New Jersey says:
Would the 80-008 nite lock pin be ok to use with Vinyl windows?

I believe it could, however I'm a little hesitant on using it since it could interfere with the window's "tilt" mechanism. You must also be careful not to damage the glass pane when drilling into the sash itself.

We have a newer type that you may prefer. See our 26-387 vent lock kit, and the video we made for it below. I actually just installed a set for my son at his apartment and was very pleased with how it turned out.

Thank you for the quick reply. I did check out the 26-387 and I really like the design! I will be using that on some single hung windows. However, for a double hung window I would need to use the 26-387 and do something on the outside to prevent the top sash from being movable.

My main objective is for security purposes when a would-be burglar breaks the window latch/lock, which I have seen occur. So I am planning to use the 80-008 nite lock pin to still prevent both top and bottom sashes of a double hung window from opening even if the latch/lock is broken.
