Worked great for my application it’s quicker than squaring the corners and the rear of the panels.

looks good and bends well
I used this for a curio cabinet. This did the job. I did not use a stapler to put the nails in. This meant that I needed to pre-drill every hole for the nails since it was difficult to pound in the brads through the rubber.. I found myself wishing that I would have used wood retainers (either square or 1/4 round). It would have taken fewer nails and would have been easier except for the break arch glass inserts. But it did work.

Refinishing an antique hutch with rounded glass in sides and door. Needed to secure glass at bottom and top.

Flexible and works well with retaining glass panels.

Have several glass circles to install, so this is an easier solution instead of making hardwood quarter-round circle moldings to precise dimensions. Was informed by chatting with product support that that white stripe is NOT there -- makes sense.

I have a couple glass doors to make and find this as the best method to hold glass in.

I am using this product to replace a similar plastic retainer that has deteriorated on the door of a grandfather clock. The existing retaining strip appears to be glued in, not tacked or stapled. I would prefer to do this rather than risk glass breakage with nails, pins or staples. What adhesive would be best recommended for this purpose?

Would this be suitable to frame glass shelves?
CoachT on Jan 4, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I have used this retainer many times for cabinet doors with glass and it works great and looks good from inside. I have always attached it with small 23 gauge nails in nail gun. However, if you are going to use it on the underside of a shelf where it has to support weight, other factors such as how much weight will be on the shelf will be come into play. This retainer plus small nails will certainly hold a glass panel in place and will likely support some weight I just don't know how much.
is this fasten with a staple gun?
A shopper on Apr 10, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I found that the use of a staple gun is limited by the wood and not the plastic. I tried a Craftsman staple/brad gun and while it worked on a test piece of pine, it did not work on the hardwood grandfather clock case. I ended up pre-drilling and using a tack hammer. A second reason for this is my personal vision problem. I do not have depth perception to align the Craftsman gun reliably enough to reliably keep from hitting glass.

I did like the fit and flexibility of this plastic. The original retainer was brittle and falling off between tacks. This material holds well, is not tacky and cuts well for corners and is flexible enough to fit on curves.
Is this paintable?
Steve B on Jan 25, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Yes, but you must first remove the shiny finish with sandpaper, steel wool etc...
