plastic clips for a storm window panel

A home owner from USA says:
I need to replace plastic clips for a storm window panel. The old clips are one inch in length and 1/8 inch thick although slightly tapered. There is a 1/4 inch right angled section that holds the window in place. Help.

I would like to see a picture of the clip in question along with detailed dimensions. I don't know if we have the exact clip you want, but we might have something that could work for your storm panels.
A home owner from ny says:
Your request poses a problem. The only dimension I left out was its width (which I do not think is relevant). to my problem. Think of the letter 'L' on its long side with the long side one inch and the short side 1/4 inch.

Our 70-205 has a 1/4" offset, but without a picture I really do not know if this is a close match to your clip. all I know is that you need something with a 1/4" section and is plastic.
A home owner from ny says:
checked out your 70-205.. The current clips, other than the 1/4 offset, are basically flat...plus the screw hole is much smaller, basically the same size as the screw itself. Would it be easier if I took a picture and sent it?

Here are the pictures you requested..Note that the offset id 1/4 inch and thickness is 1/8 inch.

Thank you! I'm glad you sent pictures, because we do not have an exact match to this. Our 70-053 is similar, but it is a flush clip. The only storm panel/screen clip I could find that may work for you was our 70-110 white aluminum clip. This has a 1/4" off set.

I agree with Dave, our 70-053 probably won't work. You may also want to consider our 32-325, which has a 5/16" offset.
