Snap in glazing for Andersen windows

A home owner from Brentwood, CA says:
I did not find my glazing in your catalog, but I did see an image of it on the web under Google Images - it was in a catalog identified as 65-213W, no clue on company (not listed on the catalog). I attached a photo file from the web which looks like it. There is a 9/16" slightly bowed section that goes on the window face, then there is another section of 1/4" which is at a 45 degree angle down - so overall length is 13/16". On the angled part there is a barb facing up, which locks it into the frame. Let me know prices of various lengths.

Thank you for posting. Please see our 55-164 and see if this can be a possible match.

Thanks Tom, but one follow on question from my early posting on 7 Jun: Your 55-164 snap in glazing appears to make a 90 degree bend between the long and short piece and mine is about 45 degrees. When I try bending mine down to 90, it breaks - so if I bend yours up to 45 will it break OR is that simply they way they work (i.e. new at 90 then with age it goes to 45 due to holding the window in?) ?
thanks, Jim

This kind of spline is meant to bend. It sounds like yours is just brittle, which happens with age. See this animated image below to see how our 55-164 bends.
