Broken plastic window guard

I have a plastic guard on all my windows that can pop up or down, which prevents someone from opening a window more than a few inches (when up). The other day, someone was visiting and didn't know about them. When they tried to open the window, they forcibly broke the guard. I don't know the brand name or where to find them—or even what they're called. If anyone has any insight, it would be greatly appreciated. I have attached three photos below.

Thanks very much.

Wow...I may have actually found it on a first try....26-122 Vent Lock : SWISCO.com

Thats the manufacturer site...you can find it many places. If you have to order..AAAscreen has always been good for me.

You'll need to make some measurements to verify it will work...but the guys at AAA are very helpful I've found. Best to order a few more than you need...same shipping price to a point.

Not affiliated with AAA...just had good service. Most any good hardware store could also order them.

That has got to be it! A vent lock—no wonder I couldn't find it.

I can't thank you enough, Gunguy45. We appreciate it a lot.
