Plastic window pull guides
 
1 Attachment(s)
I need to replace the white plastic window pull guides (that attach to the side of the window frames to hold the windows open. I have the replacement guides (in black). Question: What is the proper size rivet to install the new plastic guides? I assume the rivet is 1/8", but what is the proper length?

1/8" dia. with 1" grip. Put in the top and bottom rivets first and drill the middle holes if they don't line up.

#45 or #48 pop rivets will work fine.

#45 has a grip range of 5/16" and #48 has a grip range of 1/2 inch.

I don't know where you would find a 1/8 inch pop rivet with a 1 inch grip range.

#46 rivets are more than enough, which is about 1/8"x3/8".
