Replacement Snap on Vinyl Glazing Bead

A home owner from Austin, TX 78723 says:
I am looking for replacement snap on vinyl glazing beads for our 1959 home in Austin, TX. The windows are single pane aluminum. If this beading is no longer available, is there something close which might work?

As you look at the photo of the existing vinyl glazing bead, the left straight side is approximately 5/16" high. The bottom tip to tip is about 5/15"across. The right side slanted bottom half is about 3/16"long.

Thanks so much for your feedback!

Hmm... your windows are rather old. I'm not sure if we can supply a glazing bead that matches yours exactly. That said, take a look at our 55-006, 55-023 or 55-030. Would any of these work? In a worst case scenario, you might have to use a type of glazing putty to repair your sash.
