Thanks for reaching out to us. We have a couple different glazing beads similar to this, like our 55-161 and 55-019, but the top part of your bead is a lot narrower than ours. Please give us a little time to see if we can find a replacement that is closer to your dimensions and we will get back to you as soon as we find something.

The glazing bead you're looking for has been discontinued. We do carry the 55-161 glazing bead, but the head is wider at 3/8" . You would need to trim it down by 1/8". We also carry the 55-114 which is different than 55-161, but has the 1/4" head you need. However, I am not sure if it will fit your window frame.Take a look at the glazing beads suggested to see if you can adapt any of them to your window sash.

I did look at the 161, you cant trim that down, it ould weaken it? Correct ? Jamie

Because it is only an 1/8" of an inch, we don't foresee it causing any damage to the glazing bead. We do understand your point of causing it to weaken or alter a bit, but as I mentioned since it's such a small alteration, it shouldn't do any damage to the glazing bead. Unfortunately, in this case this is the only possible solution we can recommend to getting the part to work for you. 

I apologize there isn't any further help or suggestions we can provide.
