1950's Roll-out Windows

We just purchased a home built in 1958. It has the old roll-out windows. The previous owner left the dual panes to be put up in winter. He didn't leave instructions on how to install them:( We found some J-shaped clamps that look like they go with it but not sure. One side of the frame(on the dual pane) has weather stripping and the wood frame looks like there might have been a track it popped into. No one I know has this type of window so I haven't been able to get any help. Any info will be appreciated! Thanks.

i have no idea what you mean by roll out windows.

if you're refering to storm doors and these (click on link below) type of clips please say so.

tip: if you have screens in place remove those first before installing storm window panels.

The windows are single pane and have handles that open the windows vertically. Will try to find a picture online and post a link.
