Aluminum Storm windows

We have the really old aluminum storm window - single pane, etc. They have mitered corners that are connected with a pin in the corner. Most of them have at least one corner (some have 3) that have separated. Right now, we don't want to replace them, just repair the corners.

Is there a good way to do this? Is there a reliable kit? I had one repaired at a local glass shop and it cost me $35. I figure I can do it myself for less.

Hi:Bruce

If I invision the location of that pin your referring to, being on the outer facing edges of the frame, take one window to a local hardware store and inquire about install a POP rivet in the hole where the pin use to be.

You might also try a flat head sheet metal screw. Maybe duplicating what the glass shop used on the window they fixed could be the answer. Inquire at the local hardware store.

Good Luck,
