|Tape holds corners securely while S-40 sets|
|Relax the corners for a better fit|
First, I recommend that both the movable and fixed panes of glass, and their stainless retainers, be completely removed from the window. Next, put a bead of polyurethane caulk (like 5200 or Loctite S40) inside the stainless U-channel. Next, put the Trim-Lok into the stainless U-channel holding it tightly in place, especially in the corners, using masking tape. Finally, when the polyurethane has dried, reinstall the glass and its retainers.
The windows are once again a joy to use and hopefully, in another three years, I'll be able to report they have been trouble free.
