SWISCO - The Replacement Hardware Authority

need additional detail information

A home owner says:
Searching for replacement bulb weatherstripping which kinda meets your 58-182 spec, but the dimension of 5/16 is not enough. The one I have is at least 3/4", closer to 7/8". I do not see that same dimension on the detail sketch for 58-164 bulb weatherstripping. Can you provide the full length to me, simliar to what is shown on the 58-182 detail? (Mine is "T" 3/16 (.187_ with the circle of the bulb more like .375). Providing that additional detail measurement will help ensure I chose the correct part. (Mine are Simonton windows).

Also, is the 58-164 bulb soft or hard vinyl? My current piece has a foam liner (but not foam filled).

Thanks

Thanks for posting. The 58-164 is hard vinyl. You can see its dimensions in the diagram below.

I'm not sure if we have anything that matches your dimensions exactly. At this point, it would be best if we see a few pictures of your existing weatherstripping. I will need to see its shape, so pictures of its cross section are essential.

Attached is the picture of my window piece. It was a little hard to measure since the foam filled section has been scrunched. However, the "T" piece is .193 (probably equal to your 3/16) and the distance from the end of the T to the beginning of the fiam filled piece is 3/16, again similar to your picture 58-164. However the measurement from the very top to the very bottom (shown on 58-164 as 5/8) for me is closer to 3/4. Again, my piece is foam filled not hard. Any ideas?
