Does anyone know where to get the metal strips and felt-ish material you find attached to the parting bead in many old double hung windows (see attached photo). I've heard these referred to as dust plugs. Or is there a better solution?

I've searched google images to see where this meeting rail block/dust plug goes...I found it for sale, can anyone tell me where it goes? My original windows are devoid of this piece. Thanks,

The "meeting rail block" is part of the metal rib weatherstrip system. The block is attached to the outer edge of the parting bead near the meeting rail. This illustration is hidden at the Accurate website:
