I was hoping someone here could identify these and point me towards replacements. All of the windows in this Phoenix had mitered aluminum frame screens that were held in place by these clips. Despite being careful, almost all of them broke in several places. These were all that remain. They slide over the inner lip of the windows and then the screen frame snaps in place.
I would like to avoid trying to make new ones. I went to a window repair store today that specializes in old windows and had tons of aluminum window and storm door parts, and they've never seen anything like these.
This is the lip they clip over - with my modified rivets from VTS.
Edit: the Hehr C 2401 C windows have tracks that were gunked up for the screens to slide into. Very common slide in, up, and drop style.

I found these on a quart can of amber dye for staining my entry door. These are lid clips to keep the lid from coming off during transport. Might these help? I have these two. The other can of clear didn’t have these on it. The other idea might be a tiny binder clip once the chrome arms are removed.

The eraser gives it a little perspective on size.
Just another toss out idea. Look up trailer wiring clips. Similar design, but probably too narrow or maybe could be modified through filing. Maybe one of those ideas will bring you to a replacement.

Have you explored the world of auto body trim clips? Different auto manufacturers have used similar clips over the years to secure metal and plastic trim to vehicle bodies and interiors. There are literally hundreds of different clips used on cars, and an internet search may find something similar or something close that could be modified.
