Looking for Pella Patio sliding door plug

Both my Pella patio sliding doors lost the plastic plug, that covers the hole for the adjustment.

Looked on Pella.com and coudl not find the part. Does anyone know where to get such a part?

They make little snap in plastic cap that are available in the small parts bins at home centers and hardware stores....maybe even automotive.

I've used translucent ones to cover old shower door mounting holes, removed brackets from dashes, etc. Anything that can be snapped in would work fine. Might be a tiny bit harder to remove...but how often does that happen?

Here's what I mean...just an example...unless you need maybe 1000ea? http://www.widgetco.com/hole-plugs-covers-3-8


Here's some at Lowes (similar at HD)...might need to order, but ship to store is free.

Put a little silicone under the lip if you need it absolutely waterproof. It will still pop out with a putty knife.

Lots of guys don't even install that plug in the first place.

Check out SWISCO.COM. You can buy one's and two'ees for most any window and door repair part. Usually inexpensive.
