SWISCO - The Replacement Hardware Authority


A home owner from Indiana says:
Hi! I need to replace the weatherstrip and seal on all my Caradco 916 casement windows. I have attached two photos of the strip around the sash and two photos of the seal around the frame. Hopefully this is enough information to help you identify the parts I need. I appreciate any help you can give me!

This looks an awful lot like our 58-053. Check it out and let me know if you agree.
A home owner from Indiana says:
I agree. Thanks! What about the leaf weather strip that is also pictured. I'm thinking it is either 55-169 or 55-106. What do you think?

Oh, I'm sorry. I must have missed those. I agree, the 55-169 and 55-106 look close. You will have to carefully compare the dimensions we show to your own and see which is closer.

I'm not sure if that photo is going to post, but mine has about the same measurement of 55-169 except the total width is 11/16" rather than 3/4". Will that still work even though it is slightly larger than my original? I appreciate all your help!

I agree, I think that might be your best bet. The reason why yours is a little shorter is probably because it was simply worn down with age.
