UPVC door window beading

Postby gedk66 » Wed Mar 05, 2008 7:23 pm

Hi, I bought a UPVC door and it came without the glass fitted. I have a major problem with getting the beading in around the glass. I was told to put the top and bottom pieces in first and then the vertical side pieces. Here lies the problem. I just cannot seem to the corners in place. I don't want to try too hard, because I might end up with a nasty kink.
Anyone got any suggestions,please???

Try bending the bead and putting the corners in first, they usually snap in fine or if not a rubber mallet and a tap will be fine fine

I've tried my best, but it's just not happening for me. Anyone in the Surrey area willing to sort it out for me. Cash waiting of course!!

Rub a little fairy liquid on the ruber, it enables you to push a corner in, in the middle of the side, then slide it up towards the corner while you press the rest into place. When Three quarters done, click the last corner in, then the middle. Failing that, try our Locate a Specialist directory for a glazer in your area
