Tom from SWISCO responded:
I'm afraid Cole Sewell is no longer in business, so we may not be able to find an exact match. That said, I'd be happy to research a possible alternative. If you can, please remove a small sample of the vinyl strip in question and show me a picture from an angle that clearly shows its end. That will be the best place to start.

Thank you! I would suggest using our 70-180 storm door clip and drilling a hole for the 33-020 screw. This may be a good solution. Like Tom said, Cole Sewell is no longer in business, but there is actually a second layer of trouble with this kind of hardware. Over the past twenty five years, storm door companies have found that designing plastic retainer strips instead of using the old fashion storm door clips and screws is less expensive. The problem is that every different door company changes the retainer strip almost every year and it is impossible to stock them.
