add crank mechanism to window?

A home owner from woodland hills ca says:
Hello...I would like to find out if it is possible to add a crank-out mechanism to metal frame
casement windows that do not presently have them. At present, you unlock the window and just push it out to open. I want to make them more secure and burglar proof with a cranking mechanism.
Thank you,
Joe F.

You could possibly use our 39-020 and 39-021, operators, along with our 39-504, channel guide, attached to the bottom of the sash. The operators can be secured into the window sill. However, you will need to cut into the lower main frame of the window for the arm to pass through. I don't believe it would be an easy fix.
