Arg!!!!

Lilly knocked out one of the windows in the front room over the weekend. The glass wasn't broken, it just broke the molding strips used a window stops.

Neither Home Depot nor Lowes carries it and said I need to contact the window manufacturer. Unfortunately I can't find any manufacturers label on any of the window frames.

Search online, all I can find are moving parts on windows, no stops.

Usually pieces of plastic/vinyl like this are $0.10 - $1.00 a foot. I just need 4'-6', and it would be a breaze to do the work myself. I really don't want to have to pay $100+ just to have some guy come out, order the stop material, and install it themselves if it's something I can easily do.

Anyone know where I can find a vinyl molding/stop for holding a double pane window in an aluminum frame?

Hmm, did you try a smaller Ace hardware store? They often carry weird shit, generally the small weird shit that's hard to find. Also, if they don't have it, if you can find one of those 70 year old Ace men tottering around the store, they might know where to go if it's not in the store. I'm sure you know that Ace hardware isn't a store itself, but mom-n-pop stores carry ace hardware, you'll have to google them.
