I have aluminum windows (about 14 years old) a few of which have a problem
staying up. There is a tube on either side of the window attached at the
top with a screw. Inside the tube is a spiral rod and what seems to be a
spring. When the window is raised the spiral rod does not go into the tube
as obviously intended which in turn does not allow the window to stay up.
I tried reattaching the spiral rod to what seems like an anchor location at
the bottom of the sash but it doesn't hold. Any ideas how to remedy this
Thanks in advance,
