Look on the latch plate or the window corners for the name of the manufacturer. It might also be on the metal spacer between the glass. Andersen had something like that years ago.
Post a few pictures. The whole door and a closeup of the part.

These inserts were pretty popular for a few years. There are lots of them still around, all with the same problem..broken or missing pins. There were two adaptations of this theory. Some manufacturers used pins that looked like the push pins you use to post notes on a bulletin board, When we run across these, we use short, headed, wire gauge nails to refasten the grills. The other type were little sliding plastic buttons with the points on them. I never devised a suitable substitute for these.

If you doors are from one of the "premium" manufacturers, they will have their name either on the corner of the glass, latch, or hinges, as suggested.
