Need this plastic channel for old Crossly window sashes. There's one on each side of the sash to help in gliding. Please pics.

Thanks.

Hi...wrote yesterday and attached pictures of the edge guides I'm looking for, for my Crossley windows. Have not seen my post, or heard back from anyone. Wondering if the mail got to you.

Again, I'm attaching the pictures. The guide, or edge sleeve is made of white plastic, shaped like U, with one leg of the U a bit longer than the other - don't think that matters. Longer leg is 9/32" (not critical), the shorter leg is 5/32" (not critical). Bottom of the U is 3/16" thick. This guide grips sash edge that is 1/16" thick.

Regards...Rich

Thanks for posting, Rich.

We have located a possible replacement part. However, this part is not yet online. We will post an update on the discussion board as soon as the part is online and available for you to view.

Thank you for your patience.

Hi Rich,
Please check out new SWISCO product code 55-034, guide runner.

Thanks Donna,

Close, but mabye no cigar. I'm looking for something a hair wider. Specified 3/16 OD at bottom of U, but maybe closer to 5/32. If your pare is just 1/8, it may not fit over the "fat edge".

Rich, Crossly Manufacturing has been out of business for quite some time now; their parts are no longer available.

I actually took a Crossly window sash and tried out our new 55-034 Guide Runner. It goes on tight, but I think it's the only option.
