    Default Fireplace doors

    We have Majestic fireplace glass doors which have frames only on the top and bottom. The glass is held in solely by 2 clips/clamps which fit tightly between the glass and the frame on both the top and bottom of each door section. We are missing one clip/clamp which caused the glass to fall out of the frames recently. Nothing broke but we have been unable to find a replacement clip/clamp. Could we use glazing putty, small pieces of rubber or something else to wedge in between the glass and the metal frame to hold the glass in place?

    Thanks for any suggestions!

    Do not use window glazing, it is not designed for the temperatures that the glass and doors will see. Instead, go to a woodstove/insert supplier and either get replacement hardware from them, or get some fire cord to chink the joint between the glass and door. A well stocked hardware store may have fire cord or similar product.

    Thanks, Spruce. We will check out fire cord. That sounds like it might solve our problem.
