vinyl window glazing beads

A home owner from Great falls, MT says:
Dear Swisco Customer service:

My house was built in 1985. one of window glazing beads needs to be replaced. The photos have been attached to describe the shape and size. I would like to make sure before I buy it. Is this Andersen 3/8" glazing beads, gray color, product code:55-303. Also do you have the service or store in Great Falls, MT?

Hello, Zou. Looking at your photo, I don't think our 55-303 is the one you want for your window. In your drawing you show that the top is 5/16" wide (3/16" + 1/8"), while the top of the 55-303 glazing bead is 1/2". You might want to consider our 55-301 glazing bead instead. This is for 5/8" thick glass. See if you can find out the thickness of your glass. That would determine which glazing bead would work best.
