Window Lock

Does anyone know of a lock for a casement style window that allows it to be locked in a intermediate position for ventilation.

I know of something, but don't know where to get them. My son purchased a pre-owned house that had small brackets that attached to the window slide rails (not on the movable window). They attached with a screw. Put above the sliding window, they limit how wide the window would open; put below the sliding window, they limit how far down the window would close.
Putting two (or on each side for super safety) you could limit the window from opening and/or closing.
This should accomplish what you want. My son took them off because he has kids as young as seven and felt it was a safety hazard because they couldn't open a window to escape a fire. He gave me a small bag of them, I'd guess 25 or 30.
Anyway, I have an idea you can find these at any good hardware store or (UGH) at a big box store.

Casement windows are the kind you crank, and they are hinged on one side. They swing out, not slide in a frame.
