SWISCO - The Replacement Hardware Authority

Vinyl glazing bead

A handy person from Venice Florida says:
I need replacement vinyl glazing beads for Weathertight Windows. The Weathertight Co. is no longer in business. I was looking at your Milestone White Vinyl Glazing bead product code 55-191 which looks to be pretty close to what I have. The only measurement difference is on the section with the lip that goes into the grove in the window frame. Your drawing shows 1/2" NOT including the lip. Mine measures 1/2" including the lip. I sent some pictures. Do you think your 55-191 will work on these windows? Thank you for your time and help.

You could also consider our 55-172. Is this closer to your measurements?

Here are the measurements on the window glazing bead I have. (See the hand drawn picture.) The measurements are closer to the 55.191 than the 55-172. In your professional opinion, which of the two would be the best replacement for my windows?
Thank you for your time and help.

Yes, this actually matches our 55-191 very well. This may be the better match.
