Have you considered using decorative shelf brackets to hold up your windows? Saw this in a magazine and it looked great! Was functional and very decorative. Until I read the caption on the picture, just thought it was a decorating tip! Didnt realize it was holding the window open. Wish I'd seen that when I had old windows. You just sit the brackets in the bottom corners of the window on the sill with the flat sides of the brackets against the outside edge of the window and along the sill.
I believe you can purchase from a hardware store, small metal clamps that can be attached to windows that will hold them up. They are fairly inexpensive around $5 and can save a trip to the hospital if the tube is accidentally knocked over and the window comes down on someone.
