Snap-in vinyl glazing

A home owner from Seattle, WA says:
Looking for vinyl glazing with the attached profile. 55-180 looks similar in dimensions, but has flat, angled faces instead of the curved face on my piece--plus the straight 'leg' on 55-180 is only 1/4". 55-195 is closer to the correct shape, but lacks the tight curled lip at 5 o'clock on my piece. Suggestions?

Hello! That 1/4" back leg is not as critical as the exposed vinyl, the one with the curved hook at the end. I feel that the 55-180 could work for your sash. I would just make sure to replace all the glazing on the sash so that they match. You can save the old leftovers as emergency backup repair options.
