SWISCO - The Replacement Hardware Authority

weather strips

A handy person from Harrisburg, Pa says:
I made a drawing, but I did not have a program to convert it to any forms that you would accept, so I took a photo of the screen. The second photo is the profile I was drawing. the third shot is the outside side of the strip. Will the bubbles keep the window from going down far enough to lock?

I'm not sure I recognize this. Can you confirm if this weatherstripping is for a screen, or for a window sash?
A handy person says:
It is for a vinyl window. I am including a photo of the bottom of the window with the strip in place.

Thank you. I'm afraid I haven't been able to find any bubble seal that goes in a .275" groove. Can you confirm that? In the meantime, look at our 58-135 and see if this is a possible match.
A handy person from Harrisburg, Pa says:
58-164 looks good except the bubble would get trapped below the window. Would it compress enough to allow the window to lock? Is the material above the bubble rigid or flexible? 58-135 will not work because the bubble is on the outside of the window and would not hit the sill for my application.

Yes, it will collapse enough so you can close the window. Many window companies use this bubble for this purpose.
