SWISCO - The Replacement Hardware Authority

glide channel cap length

A home owner from El Paso, Texass says:
Our 1969 aluminum alenco windows are hard to glide shut as the rail on which it sits is worn and rugged. I am looking for the long strip of hard rubber or plastic that is channeled so that it can be inserted lengthwise into the existing damaged rail on which the alenco window sits to allow the window to glide shut.

I'm not sure what part it is you're looking for, exactly. Can you show me a few pictures of yours? That will help us find the best possible match.

Hello Tom, Grey weather stripping-like runner that snaps onto rail that is worn so that window will slide smoothly. Please let me know if he photos downloaded. Julio
