Retaining strips for Cole Sewell screen door

A quick learner from Maplewood NJ says:
Hi- looking for replacement retaining strips (or anything else that will work!) for our front screen door. It has a glass panel, which stays put OK, but with the screen in, the strips keep moving and pooping out, and the bottom one seems like it might not even be made for the door.

Door is Cole Sewell Estate Series #410585. Any advice appreciated. Thanks!

I was never a big fan of this kind of plastic retainer strip for storm doors. Also, seeing as how you have a Cole Sewell door (they are no longer in business), I don't believe this part is still available.

When we manufactured storm doors, we would use a clip like our 70-098S. Take a look at that clip, as well as our 70-180. See if the dimensions, in particular the off set, can work for your storm door. You could use a type of screw like the 33-022 to secure the clip into the door.
