Forum Title: Top wood sash sliding down
The top wood sash (old double hung window) slides down if the window is not latched. There is one metal window tension spring installed on either side of the sash, but it does not hold so good -- I think because of the weight of the sash. Sash measures 36 wide by 38 tall. It is an old window, very heavy with wavy glass and would be expensive to replace. I do not want to glue/nail the top window shut, because I want to be able to remove it for cleaning. Are there any metal brackets or fixture I could install to keep the top sash in place? I have seen the following items for sale online, but I don't know their purpose or if they would resolve the issue: sash spring bolt sash stay stop bead adjuster Thanks!

Perhaps a picture of the door and hinge area will help us determine if we can help.

We have already used the metal spring window sash thing. It does not hold up a heavy window. I do not know if you need to install two springs on each side if the window is large or what. I will email Killian's Hardware and see if they have any suggestions.
