Snap-in Glazing Bead

A home owner from Granite Bay, CA says:
Please can you help me identify and source the plastic snap-in glazing bead in the attached images? The bead I am looking for is on a picture window, for which the bead is wider (1") than on the other windows (~3/4"). The label on the sliding windows says:

MFGR: RYL-017-1
Series: 25B

Color is almond, I think, but white will do.

Thanks!

Thanks for posting! This appears to resemble our 55-164 snap-in glazing. Do you think this can work as a substitute?

Thanks for you reply. I must say you guys are offering a tremendous service with this web site. You thoroughly deserve our thanks and admiration!

The shape you suggest is close to what I need, but my width is definitely 1.0", compared to the 3/4" for the 55-164. However, I am getting desperate, so I am going to order a couple of pieces to see if the 3/4" will cover the gap.

The user in the previous message seems to have exactly the same problem - needs a 1" width instead of 3/4". In my case, the 1" bead goes on a picture window (non-opening). The window does not have a manufacturer's label, but on the sliding windows in the house the mfr is given as RYL-017-1 (although the sliding windows uses a slightly smaller bead!).

It appears that RYL may mean Rylock Windows, but an internet search just turns up a phone number, and the phone has been disconnected. Thus I suspect they are no longer in business. All this just for general information - - -
