SWISCO - The Replacement Hardware Authority

Need parts for Gapco window

A home owner from Baker FL says:
I need a few of the small plastic piece indicated by arrow. Also, is there a replacement for the long fuzzy gasket-like piece (other arrow) that slides into the channel. Window was installed in 1990. Brand is Gapco. I'm replacing all balances and sash guides and noticed that some of the plastic clips are missing and the "gaskets" are fairly worn.

Can you supply these?

BTW, great website. Way better than your competitors.

Hey, Rick. I recommend our 55-035 nylon guide runner. See if this could work. As for the wool pile, please give me width of the base and the height of the pile.
A home owner from Baker FL says:
The channel that the pile slides into is 3/16" wide. The pile is 1/16" deep. I don't know what's normal for this. I haven't noticed any wind whistling but there have been a couple of times that a strong wind can let some water in. You can see from new photo that there is a plastic ridge that runs the length of it, probably as a water seal.

Seeing as how you have a 3/16" groove and a fin seal, take a look at our 58-021 and 58-127 wool pile to start out. Take note that while fin seal does help block out water, water always seems to find its way through when it wants.
