weatherstripping for the glass portion of a Cole Sewell storm door

A home owner from Roy, UT says:
Hi- I have a Cole Sewell storm door, which I'm just finding out do not exist any more. The glass portion of this door has been held in place by 4 pieces of weatherstripping. 3 of the 4 have warped due to the heat from the sun and would no longer stay in place. The 4th piece was holding it OK, but we had a horrible wind storm yesterday which knocked the glass out. I decided it was time to try and replace the pieces that have warped. I have not been able to find any replacements around here and found info on the web that you may have what i'm looking for?? The registration number listed on the sticker on the door is 11159996042 0038 There are 2 pieces that are 27.5" and 2 that are 68" Can you help me?

I'm afraid Cole Sewell is no longer in business, so we will not be able to get you this exact retainer strip. You could cut your strip down in sections and use the undamaged ones as substitutes. You could also see if you can substitute it by using our 70-180 clip and 33-020 screw. The logic behind both solutions is that a few of these installed along the length should serve the same function as one long continuous strip.
