SWISCO - The Replacement Hardware Authority

Using 55-006 after installation

A handy person from Pearland TX says:
Without being able to find any snap-in glazing locally, I've installed the replacement window glass using silicone.

Should I scrape out the silicone and use the snap-in, or just cut the lip off the snap-in glazing and silicone it on (just for looks) ?

Paul from SWISCO responded:
The silicone should be used as the back bed of the glass as it sets to the frame. The snap in glazing is then locked to the glass and frame on the opposite side. If you can remove the silicone and install the glazing bead, that would be the best way.
