    Hi folks, I wonder if any of you can give me some advice on where I might be able to find glazing spring clips like the one in the image attached. I need to replace several panes damaged over the winter and the regular G spring clips are too small for my frame. Any help or advice would be very much appreciated.
    Thanks!

    I would try the manufacturers of the greenhouse.

    I've got an old Headens green house I bought about 40yr ago.
    Those clips look similar.
    I don't think they are in business anymore.

    Thanks pete, I salvaged it about 10 years ago from my in-laws’ house and had no idea who the manufacturer was. Do you happen to know if the wire W clips would do the same job? The frame is quite deep. Thanks again

    I don't think the wire ones will work.
    The Ali section is different.
    If can't come up with anything I'd suggest bedding the glass on glazing tape and some low modulus silicone to hold the glass in place.

      Try BHGS British horticultural and garden supplies, there head office is in Evesham Worcestershire, but they have depots in regional areas, may be worth an email and piccy to see if they can help, they sell to the general public, they stock garden greenhouses and professional glasshouse servicing parts, from glass clips to the flat head nuts and bolts, andvthose green clips for holding shade netting and fleece to the frame. If anyone has them, these people may.

          Pity you are not near me I could give you a big bag of them. They came with the greenhouse, but I used glazing strips instead.
          We are in the very west North Midlands.

            Would these not be better to hold your glass or perspex with?
