SWISCO - The Replacement Hardware Authority

Storm door retaining strips (vinyl Glazing)

A handy person from Uniontown, Ohio says:
The strips I am trying to replace hold both the storm window and screen. I remove them twice a year to put in the window in the windter and the screen in the summer.
Two Strips are 29".
Two strips are 73".

End dimentions are side 1 - 5/16
top - 1/2
side 2 - 1/2

Attached are 4 pics and a end drawing (the best I could).

Any help to find a replacement would be appreciated.

Thank you for posting. I'm afraid we don't have or vinyl retaining clips for storm door panels. To be honest, I've never been fond of that method in general. I've always preferred using a storm door clip like our 70-180, along with a sheet metal screw like our 33-090. This does the job just as well and tends to be less of a hassle in terms of replacement. What do you think?
A quick learner says:
I can't agree more. But, that is sort of like water over the dam. I didn't realize when I got the door (about 15 or so years ago) what a pain they would be. Are you recomending I replace the retaining strips with the door clip and screws? How many would I need? What would the placement of them be?

If you would like to use a screw on-clip, I would suggest two for the top and bottom (width) and possibly 4 or 5 on the sides (length).

Thanks Dave and Paul for your suggestions. I think that's what I'll do.
