Question Loose Glass in Transom

We recently bought a few interior transoms and noticed the glass is slightly loose. Not like it is going to fall out or anything, it just shifts a little bit when you open and close them.

Any recommendations for how I can shore up the glass?

Are you talking about the glass in it's sash or the sash within the frame? Usually glass doesn't have to be held tight. Just so it doesn't fall out and a bit of freedom allows the wood to swell and shrink without breaking the glass.

If you just bought them, ask the supplier if the glass is supposed to be loose. Chances are that when you stain or paint the sash, it will fill the hairline space between the glass and wood.
