Window Jacks

Now that the weather's getting warmer, we like to throw open the windows to let the fresh air in. Living in an older apartment complex, our building's shifted due to earthquakes and not everything works the way it's supposed to. Take our windows for example. Our double hung window in our bathroom won't stay up no matter how many times our handyman tweaks it. We've used a block or a nail to hold it up and then we found this solution…

This wooden window jack from The Vermont Country Store, a favorite old time source, does the trick with a little more panache and less of a chance of being startled awake in the middle of the night by the sudden slam of the window when the makeshift prop you've used fails. Three notches offer three options for keeping your windows open. Made of pine, they can be painted or stained to match your decor.
