We've recently bought an old house and I want to get the windows in better working order. I see lots of advice on how what to do with old pulley/weight systems, but our windows don't have those.
Our windows have what looks like a metal ribbon that extends up from the bottom sash in the track to the upper frame. I am trying to figure out what exactly these are called. It's hard to search for advice when I do not know the terminology. Unfortunately I cannot provide a picture as I'm an hour away from the house.
If anyone knows what these are called or can provide a link to discussions on them, I would love to hear about it.
