I want to put a compact/small window AC in an upstairs bedroom. However, I am scared we might drop it in the process of setting into the window. Any helpful ideas? Are there cage-like support for such AC's. I know there are brackets but maybe something more secure?

Thank you.

Just follow the instructions for securing the "cage". That must be done before inserting the unit into it, so some initial dis-assembly is required. All should be explained in the instructions.

so there is such a thing as a "cage" to hold the ac unit? I have seen brackets but not a cage.

When you see the unit from the outside, you are looking at the cage. The compressor and condenser are on a platform that slides into that.
