Title: greenhouse glazing clips, i cant find any correct ones.
Post by: gary43 on October 30, 2009, 17:27
have just assembled a second hand green house.
need some more glazing clips.
can not find correct ones.
can only really see 1 type of clip advertised anywhere which are are similar to what i require. which is known as a G type.
http://www.greenhousepeople.co.uk/spare-parts-for-greenhouses/glazing/elitepeak_glazing_clips/
these are nearly correct but the angled side is too long.tried these and they do not work.
better explained by my drawing attached. i need the ones on the right.
i believe the green house is a Crittall made.

Any thing here any good ?   http://www.gcraft.co.uk/overview/greenhousespares/16/Clips.html  

On our glass houses the clip fits at right angles to the glass, not running the way in your diagram.BTW There is 404 error in your link!!

that should work.
thanks for link,
several clips there, once again similar to the Stainless Steel Spring Glazing Clips. Pack 15.

Price : 3.20

if u look at them then compare to my little drawing, which might not be that good! but yes the clips are at right angle to the glass. that one edge being too long so it will not fit in to edge on the frame. will post some pics tomorrow as it a bit dark now!

This is the wrong clip. With the tab too long to correctly fit in to the frame

think you might be right, thanks
have looked at a greenhouse in a shop and did note that the w type might work. as the frame is similar.
have ordered some from ebay to try.
