Hello, the house is 100 years old but the storm door is not that old but it looks not new either. The glass hold by plastic beading is loose with a cap if pushed from the opposite side. I did picture a few to help explain. The question is to place plastic beading into snap in place from the loose at the lower corner. Thank you for your attention in advance.

The storm door must be at least 40 years old and its not likely you are going to find replacement glazing stops for it

It might be possible to drill through the glazing stop and into the frame of the door so you can put screws to hold the glazing stop in place

I would also get a small tube of automotive black butyl rubber caulk and caulk around the inside edge of the glass so it has a seal again.

Try to keep the old vinyl around the glass because you dont want the glass to touch metal, it can break.

This will keep it going for a while but its past time for a new storm door
