    Hi
    I have to replace some double glazed units for a friend.
    The beading is external but needs a special tool for removal of the beading.
    The beading has to prised up from where the bead meets the glass.I was told it is high security beading.
    the internal gasket is not a wedge and will not pull out. I am trying to source the tool I need.
    It’s a special angled tool that is pushed down between the glass and the bead.
    Does anyone know where these can be obtained.
    thank you.
    Paul

    The window profile is sheerframe, it's pretty old now, email them and see if they still have the removal tools, failing that have a google around for those hard plastic trim removal tools car body shops use to prize trims off, you might find one that's thin enough that's got a hook on the end
