SWISCO - The Replacement Hardware Authority

Double Hung window felt pad(?)

A quick learner from Omaha, NE says:
Hi,
I am painting the double hung windows in my house - and in dis-assembling them, have found these little rubber & felt pads attached to the upper sashes. I don't think I can remove them without destroying them, but would like to find replacements so I can take them off & paint.
Does Swisco have anything like this?

I'm afraid we don't have these for your wood sash. It's very difficult to find this type of part for wood sashes anymore. Before removing them, see if your local hardware store or mill work has something you can substitute. Try a mill work, especially, if they still make wood windows. I think that'll be your best bet.
