how to lock the lever operator

A home owner from Panama says:
with the 39-069 lever operator in the fully closed position, is the window essentially locked? or do you need an additional locking mechanism installed? thanks.

Dave Sr. from SWISCO responded:
Yes, the lever operator in the closed position does keep the window locked. On an typical size awning window there is no need for additional lock.
