ID of a vinyl gazing bead from an old aluminum window

A home owner from Houston TX says:
I'd like an ID of the glazing bead in the attached photos.

Also, when reinstalling the new glazing bead (and the old glass pane) in the old aluminum frame, should sealant be applied on the inside edge of the glass pane on the interior-facing side of the frame?

If so, what type of sealant? (I live in Houston, a hot, very humid climate.)

Thanks for posting. Check out our 55-030 and let me know if you think this would make a good match. You shouldn't need any kind of sealant. Check out our handy tutorial video which shows the best way of installing window glazing.
A home owner from Houston TX says:
The profile is a match, but I need one that is 1/8" smaller on both width and height - 3/8" w X 1/4" h . (The 55-030 profile is 1/2" w x 3/8" h)

Hmm... the only thing we have that's closer to those dimensions is our 55-006. Check it out and let me know what you think.

Thanks, that should work.
I have placed an order.
