Willie had a window in the rear of his cottage that overlooked an alley. He worried about his family safety, nothing had happened but graffiti had just been painted on his window screen. The window was not in use and the window had been replaced with hardboard not near enough security for my friend. He wanted the window and screen frame to be more secured.
This post shows thirteen steps to secure this window.
Step 1: Fig.1 shows a wooden frame with a metal screen.
Step 2: Fig.2 shows the window looks like from the alley. It has painted over with white graffiti.
Step 3: Fig.3 shows a flat head screwdriver to remove the screen from the window.

Step 10: Fig.12 shows prepared each side of the screen by using an electric drill with a bit to created several pilot holes for 16 gauge 4-inch nails on both sides of the screen. The screen is not for protection, it's for camouflage.
Step 12: Fig.14 shows painted the screen frame edges brown to match the window. Use the nails as handles and pushed the window screen into place and hammered the nails into place.
Step 13: Fig.15 shows the window frame and the window screen finished.
