    Smile secured all the windows

    Dad secured all the windows and doors in our house before the strong typhoon came.

    Could I use bolted down to replace secured here without changing its meaning? Thanks.

    Re: secured all the windows

    Yes, you can use bolted down instead of secured, and the meaning will be the same.
