Atrium Patio Door glazing/bead

A quick learner from St. Louis Mo says:
I have an Atrium Door, french style patio door. The snap in glasing is worn and needs replacement. I have tried with no luck in getting you a really good picture but I can't.

I made a rough sketch and did my best to get my camera to focus on the end of this thing so you can see it. It's from an Atrium Door, wood patio door purchased when my house was built in late 1989. The door is in great shape but the beads are in rough shape and need replacement.

Any ideas?

Thank you for your patience in this matter. We are having a hard time locating this! It appears that your sample here is damaged, however. Do you think we could see a picture of an end that isn't damaged? That may help us in our search. Thanks!

Here are some pictures of the vertical piece that is not cropped at the end. These are about the best pictures I can get.
If you cannot find a match, is the 2nd option completly removing all bead both the male and female pieces, removing the glass and installing a NEW bead that will fit and that is available?
Recommendations would be great. If you are aware of a reputable company in the St. Louis area I am all ears (and eyes).

Thank you! That's a much better picture. This sample actually looks somewhat similar to our 55-017. Take a look and see if it would match.

Very close, not exactly sure but for the cost, it's worth a try. I will place an order and see how it goes. You guys are GREAT. Much appreciated.

I ordered and received your 55-017 product. It doesn't fit so I want to send it back. Secondly, can I mail you a section of the existing window bead that I have so you can actually see it, touch it, compare it and see if you can come up with a good replacement?

I'm sorry to hear that our 55-017 didn't work. You can send in a sample of your weatherstripping with your return, certainly, but I am not sure if we will be able to match it up to a replacement. The 55-017 was the closest match that I could find.
