Snap-in glazing, wood frame

A handy person from Chicago says:
We have wood frame windows wich use a snap-in glazing to retain the glass #55-030 very closely matches (within a 1/16. Any experience in this type of application?

The 55-030 snap-in is used for aluminum window repair. I am not sure it will work on a wood window repair. Wood window glazing beads are often difficult to match up. Look again through out the snap-in catalog section or send us a photo of the snap-in you are trying to replace.

I am not familiar with this style of snap-in. I would like to do some more research and the window brand name would help. Do you know who manufactured your windows?
A handy person from Chicago says:
Haven't seen a name yet - suggested places to look on the casing? Original windows from '77.

The problem with finding replacement snap-in for wood windows is that manufacturers of wood windows change their snap-in style many times throughout the years, while metal window manufacturers tend to stick to the same style snap-in. You may not be able to find the same exact style snap-in and may have to try a different style of wood window snap-in. Three popular wood window snap-in styles on SWISCO Web site are the 55-080, 55-106, and the 55-156.
