Question Newbie Clio Cord Conundrum

Last week I brought a 1995 Renault Clio 1.4. 75,000 miles. It has been interesting and fun getting used to it and I was pleased to have solved the non working heater by flushing out the matrix. But I have a puzzle which no doubt every other Clio owner will know the answer to, but I do not!
At the top of the windscreen in the two corners hangs a small piece of cord, probably less than an inch long. On each is a plastic knob, such as on a bathroom light cord, or perhaps a Venetian blind cord. I have tried pulling them gently, but nothing happens, I would not use more force as not wanting to break anything.
Any suggestions what these are for please?
I would post a photo, but am not sure how to do that on this forum?
Thanks for any suggestions.
