We use just standard surface mounting contacts on the outside of the screen, but inside the ledge of the casement window. Usually you want the hole for the wire drilled on the side of the window frame.

Note: There is no advantage to putting contacts on casement style windows. They cannot be pried open from the outside. You open them by smashing the glass, and that will not affect the contact.

The only reason to put one on there is to tell if you the window is open when you try to arm your system.
