Most [of the tents] looked almost ordinary; their owners had clearly tried to make them as Muggle-like as possible, but had slipped up by adding chimneys, or bell-pulls, or weather-vanes (GF7)

Definition

A cord inside a house which, when pulled, causes a bell to ring in another part of the house to get someone else’s attention.

Many older stately homes in Britain would have had bell-pulls as a way to summon servants.
