Help in finding trim

A quick learner from Texas says:
Hello, I have a couple of windows that I need to replace the snap in trim on but I cannot match the profile to any listed on your website. So I would like some assistance in matching up the trim or choosing an equivalent if I could get some please. I can snap a picture of the profile with a reference scale in the pic if that would help.

Thanks,
Willie

Yes! A picture of the profile with detailed dimensions would be a huge help, Willie. Let me know.

Sorry it took so long to get back, been traveling and busy at work. So here is a pic from my camera, might be too blurry but we can start here. The dimensions are the vertical piece is 0.335 inch, the horizontal dimension is 0.475 inch. There is a U shape that clips into the window frame in the upper left of the picture. That outside dimension of the U is 0.1". If this picture is too blurry please let me know and I'll try again. The windows are double pane and were installed in 1995 if that helps. Thanks.

Great, this picture is a great help. I'm not sure if we have anything identical, but check out our 55-180. Could this work for you? Your shape is different, but I'm thinking maybe yours is just smushed. Let me know if you agree.
A quick learner says:
While not an exact match dimensionally the shape is sure the same. For the vertical dimension I listed at 0.335 inch your's is 0.25 inch. I did double check that dimension and indeed the original piece is a bit longer. However once the L shape is flush with the pane face and you compress the flex piece to snap the U in they are probably functionally equivalent? If you agree I'll probably snag a couple of sections and give it a try. Thanks.

If the flat part isn't long enough, maybe you could also consider our 55-120. This might be closer.
