Window screen slide stop?

We have pets, cats to be exact, who travel with us. They travel well, and they like to sniff the outdoors when camped, through the window screens. The problem is the screens are really easy to slide open, and curious little paws have figured out to slide them open, not good.

Has anyone seen some sort of device that will securely hold the screens closed when the window is open??

Something like a small binder clip on the track to stop the screen from sliding, maybe?

Binder clip is a good idea. I cut up a small wooden dowel rod and put a piece in each to block the screens/windows from opening. Not sure if the cats would knock them out.

Thanks for the replies! The tab stops would be perfect, I didn't have any luck searching, but then, I didn't search for "tab stops". Thanks, I'll get me some. In the meantime, I made a long piece of narrow wood strip that fits down into the rail, and stops the screen from moving, it is kept from popping out because of the window tab that sticks out, so even if the wood gets joggled up, it can't come up enough to slip out. But the tab stops are much more elegant and proper looking.

Thanks all!

Update on the screen stops

Have installed screen stops on the 3 windows that can be opened and have sliding screens.

The ones I used are found in the link posted by mike837go (thanks again!)

This update is to provide some install info. The screen slide track is not very deep, something like 3/8", as received the stops were too deep, they inserted fine, but height was enough to also stop the window from sliding. Quick fix involves a vice and a hacksaw, take about 1/8" off the portion that inserts into the slide track. Perfect! This also provides a better position for the thumb screw to tighten down. No more screen movement, cats don't have enough strength to unscrew the thumbscrew, plus they don't have thumbs! But it seems like they do sometimes.
