Our Uhaul only has the lock strip on the drivers side. The curb side weatherstrip has a fold in type lock. Look at As1522 on Perfectfits site to see how it is made. You can pry it out with a small screwdriver, work it out all the way around, and push the window out including the rubber. It may help to kind of roll the rubber out. I've done it alone, but hang on to the window, or get it part way out, then go outside and pull it out the rest of the way. The lock strip installation tool is made by Lisle, part # 47000. Use some liquid dish soap on the strip to ease installation.

Received my windows yesterday morning. My wife said that they were delivered at 530am. Who knew that USPS was up at that time. Anyhow, opened the box when I got home from work last night, and I must say that I was impressed. Good heavy outside cardboard. Both windows had extra styrafoam around the locks. Both windows were seperately enclosed in sheet styrafoam with reinforced tape around that. I did receive both a R/H and a L/H so that was good. Other than a little paint loss here and there, the windows are great. Looks like my weekend want-to-do list has been filled. The on net review of the company had a lot of negative talk, but they were great for me. They even called the day after I placed the order to make sure of what I was ordering. I hope the rest of you folks have as experiance as good as I have.

I just got my single window. Extremely well packed - could have survived reentry from outer space. Window is complete and perfect except for a little black paint chipping here and there. Shipping charge was $15 to SE Michigan via UPS Ground.

I'm happy with the purchase.

I'm going to ask around my friends and find someone that works in metal to cut drain slots on the 'righty' that I have so that I can turn it into a 'lefty'. I want to install it so that it slides the same way as the other one.

I think the drain slots have to go through the window channel too?

Ms. Pam,
Have you used a ' Dremel ' ? They love these kinds of little jobs. I have had a number over the years and seems like there is always something that is made MUCH easier to do with a Dremel. Great cutoff, grinding, drilling buffing, polishing attachments (even flex drive for really hard to get at stuff). You can take it slow and easy so as to not hit the glass...Maybe, I'm preachin to the choir???

I'm still waiting for my windows, one of each. They have been billed to my credit card so I guess I'm OK. What's everyone ordering for the weatherstrip, I ordered the AS1456 because it has the same dimensions as my original, and I ordered the AS789 lock strip like Perfectfit recommends. I've already committed the extra to other Uhaul owners.

Mr. Bob,
Mine are due in tomorrow according to the UPS tracking. I called Surplus Sales to get a tracking number as I am going out of town and wanted to make sure I waited till they arrive.

This weatherstrip info. ,you are talking about, is of great interest to many of us so as to get it done right! Thanks!

The weatherstrip that I'm getting is NOT what was used by Bridget T in her great post about rebuilding the windows. It is my opinion that she did not use the correct weatherstrip as she used the weatherstrip for a 1/4" thick wall. Note that this is MY OPINION ONLY, based on my original weatherstrip dimensions. Anyone else ordering the weatherstrip should decide for themselves which to get. I don't want to be the blame for the wrong part, but I believe my info is correct as I've measured it several times. I recommend that before anyone orders it that they pull out one window and check the dimensions themselves. The grooves in the weatherstrip can be easily measured with a 3/16 and 1/4" drill bit. When I get a window installed I'll post the results.

need explanation please,,, waht is the weatherstripping? Is that the black rubber stuff that goes around the edge of the hole and the window gets put into? I assume the lock strip is what goes into the escape window on the driver side? I'm getting concerned that I'm in over my head, but plan to pull up my big girl pants and try to get this done. Definitedly need to see photos plees. I'm going to go over Bridgets posting again too, but hers also dealt with rebuilding the window which I'm not going to do.
Don, I'll check out the Dremel tool option. I think I have one, but will need to see what I can buy for cutter wheels. Maybe just drilling holes will work too.

You got it, except both sides have a locking strip. One design uses a separate piece like UHaul uses for an escape hatch. A second design has the locking strip hinged so that it gets folded into locking position. Mine had a third design where a flat locking strip was glued in.

When I redid my windows, I chose to use the separate removable strip on both sides.

Ignore the dimensions, I'm trying to show the cross sectional shape.

Great!

I hope you will add your experience to the "UHaul Side Windows" thread that has captured the collective experience.

Oh No, I didn't see that weatherstrip with the dimensions of the fold in type you're showing there Tom. My Uhaul has that type on the curb side window but it is 3/16" for the wall side, and 1/4" for the window side, but the lip on the window that sets in the rubber measures 3/16", so maybe that would have been a better choice to buy. But then I couldn't make one window an "escape" window, as if I can't make it to the door. But I suppose there may be some situation where I can't get out the door, like the trailer is on it's side, or there's an angry bear ripping the door off! Anyway I started an explanation to Pam but the site went down and it was lost, and Tom's answer about says it all. Other than that I suggest to Pam if you're concerned about doing it yourself, ask at a glass shop that does auto glass, it'll be a simple job for them. Try to have a helper if you do it yourself. Be careful to cut the rubber to the right length, don't do a "I cut it twice and it's still too short". Pam, sorry I'm so far away or I'd do it for you, would you like a road trip to the Northeast. We've had people from California and Oregon, and even Hawaii at our teardrop gathering in the Adirondacks so it's doable!!! Otherwise, don't worry, it's not that complicated, take your time, look it over, and you'll do just fine. Bob

I think that is a good call. Better to err on the side of safety. If / when I remount my side window, I think I'll add some butyl putty to the rubber strip to ensure sealing. My luck with just depending on the rubber tension has been zero for two.
