Not sure if that’s what they are called ?
Need 4 of them but can’t find them in any of the suppliers catalogues.

Shouldn't be too hard to make some, but if they're yours in the photos I'd bath them in rust converter and paint them. You could try polishing them up and using clear lacquer or cover them in foil tape - as you could fold it over to hide the ends on the reverse side there's a better chance it'd stay in place.

No this is just a pic I found.
Ones on mine were badly rusted.
I’m beginning to think that making them is the way forward although they are tempered spring metal clips not just bent mild steel.

Yes and no

They are riveted on to the frame and I would have thought easily broken or like mine rusted while the rest of the frame is perfect.
Maybe try to get some new second hand frames but seems a pity to scrap good frames because of a couple of ££ for new clips.

Yes,
A trip to the poundshop for a browse is required.

I’ve managed to get two good condition clips , a third that’s OK ish and a fourth that’s only useable at a push.
So far I’ve only invested about a tenner in replacement chrome openers and the “clip” as I already had the tinted windows with chrome surround frames but rusted hardware, so I’m not deep £££ wise into it.

I don’t think it will be easy to take the frames off and fit new chrome work so maybe best just to buy new complete windows.
How much for a pair shipped UK ?
Probably best to PM me.
