Weatherstrip for Screens

A home owner from New Jersey says:
Hello, can you please help me idenitify a replacment weatherstirp for the screens in my house? They run down tracks facing the windows which look to be about 3/16" wide. The pile is about 5/8" or just under 3/4". I've attached a few pictures showing dimensions. The windows are vinyl but the screens are aluminum. The weatherstripping is well-worn and are at least 20 years old, maybe much more but I'm not sure. Thanks!

Please see our 58-179. Could this possibly work for you? It appears to be the closest match we have to your dimensions.
A home owner from New Jersey says:
Thank you for the suggestion. Yes, that seems like it would work. I'll order one to see if it fits and if so I can get some more for the whole house. I wish it came in white to match the windows, but it's kind of hidden so black should be ok.
A home owner from New Jersey says:
Thanks for the suggestion. 58-179 fit perfectly! The black color doesn't look bad at all. I just ordered two more rolls to do window screens in the entire house.
