My home was built in 1940 and it has the original tilt-out storm windows. The storm windows have a pretty cool stay / lock mechanism that keeps the window tilted open and conversely, secured when it's closed (see pic).
I need to find a few more of these as some of my windows are missing them, but I can't seem to locate them anywhere. Does anyone know where I might buy some of these?

check large nearby cities for recycled building materials. In Los Angeles I know of a few.
They carry many antique and reclaimed hardware items.
Also, there is always restoration hardware if you can afford their prices.
