I'm hoping that someone might have a solution? At the top of a storm window the tabs that helps hold the storm windows in. In more then one of mine are missing one or both. Does anyone have a way to put a new tab on or will the hole storm window have to be replaced?

    The clips are available at Home Depot or Lowes or Google "storm window hardware clips". Easy to attach. Good luck!

    Are the tabs built into the door or are the tabs screwed in? If screwed in, remove one of those still there and go to a home improvement or hardware store and show the sales associate what you need. They may be able to supply it or something so very similar that you can replace the missing tabs with.

    You could actually hot glue it if you want

      Please DON'T use hot glue. They would fall out as soon as they got too hot or too cold. Hot glue doesn't fix everything.
