Ordering Instructions for SafeGard 2R: Residential Applications
1. Determine window handing by viewing from the outside looking in. If the casement window hinge is on the right side, you need a right hand limiting device.
2. The self-locating sash device is designed for a 7/16 in. [11 mm] cavity. Ensure there are no lips or ribs that would block the ability of the sash device to engage with the frame device. Consult the window manufacturer or application if cavity is larger than 7/16 in. [11 mm] or if lips /ribs are present, or if the cavity height on the jamb is significantly different than the sill. Shims may be required.
2.1. Locate the hinge cavity by finding where the hinge arm attaches to bottom of sash. Follow this cavity around the corner of the sash to the vertical sash member
2.1.1. If there is no cavity on the vertical sash member, please consult with your window manufacturer for application review.

Safegard 2R Residential Application Info:
As a market leader in fenestration hardware, AT engineered, patented, and manufactured a releasable limit device for windows which meets the ASTM F2090 safety requirements for self-resetting, egress capable, fall prevention devices. The ASTM F2090 addresses window fall prevention that helps protect against potential falls by children through open windows. This is done by allowing the window opening to be set at a predetermined position of fewer than four inches (4”) and automatically re-latch when fully closed. AmesburyTruth’s SafeGard™ 2R provides a means that the window, when opened in an initial operation, will limit the venting to less than 4”. By code, two actions are required to open the window fully for egress purposes. This additional operation can be performed without the use of keys, tools, or special knowledge. SafeGard™ Window Opening Control Device is designed to allow for factory installation as well as field application by trained personnel.
