Cole Sewell--getting warped glass out of frame


I have a Cole Sewell storm door with a full pane that swaps out between glass and screen. This year, the glass has warped slightly--one of the joints is slightly expanded, enough that we can't get the glass out of the door frame. It's very tight but I'm afraid to force it out as I don't want to break the glass.

Any suggestions?

Cole Sewell--getting warped glass out of frame


Glass does not warp. Most likely either the frame or door has warped, or the glass was not placed into it properly. It would take a lot of force to break tempered glass, unless you hit it sharp on the edge, then it breaks into millions of little pieces.

Maybe something bad, maybe something good. I guess we'll never know, 'cause you're going to guard it. You won't touch it, will you?
