SWISCO - The Replacement Hardware Authority

Weather Strip Inquiry

A handy person from Newtown says:
I have used your 58-002 3/16 x 3/16 on many of our storm windows, but one set is different and appears to want 1/8 x 1/8 instead. Does such a thing exist? Any suggestions (other than replacing the windows)? Thanks.. Bill H

Tom from SWISCO responded:
Hey, Bill. I'm afraid we don't have a wool pile in the same style of the 58-002 that is 1/8" x 1/8". Are you sure this old wool pile just isn't worn down? Would you be able to "shave" a bit off the 58-002 to get it to work?
A quick learner from Pennsylvania says:
The problem is more the width than the height. The 3/16 seems just enough too wide to fit smoothly, unlike all the others. I can try to rig up a way to cut it narrower if that's the only choice. Thanks...
