I am trying to locate snap in glazing in light grey per the attached. Do you offer something similar. It is used on crank out patio windows

Thank you for posting! Our 55-001 is actually used on awning windows, but is only 3/8" in height. Do you think you could use this? I recommend double checking your measurements as compared to the 55-001. Let me know!
A home owner from Door and Window says:
Product 55-001 is 3/16" wider than needed. I am not sure it will snap into place.

How difficult is it to trim 55-001 to size and what is the best tool to use.

Thank you for getting back to us. We actually do not recommend trimming this glazing.

The 55-001 does have a flex to it, and so it may still work, 1/16" of a difference isn't that much in this case. Besides that, the 55-001 is used in many awning windows.
We do have a 3' length if you would like to test it out. Please see our 55-001-3.
