SWISCO - The Replacement Hardware Authority

wood window weatherstripping

A home owner from St. Charles, Ill. says:
I am trying to replace the weatherstripping on some old wood widows, maybe as old as 40 years old. I cannot identify any markings or numbers on these things, sorry I can't be more precise. The windows themselves are still worth restoring if i could find weatherstripping that will work.

Thanks for your help

Thanks for posting! These pictures are perfect. I'm not quite sure what you have, though. The 55-183 looks similar to your leaf seal, though you'll have to compare dimensions to make sure they line up. There are a lot of possibilities for the wool pile. What is the width of the base and the height of the pile? I know it's worn, but try your best to get an accurate measurement. It looks relatively small, so I would start out by looking at our 58-001 or 58-002 and then work from there.
