Glass shops use a rubber "setting" tape

You could probably use the urethane type glue in the construction style tubes.

Get the rubber tape at your auto local window shop. They usually give you several feet for free, especially if they are the guys who cut your glass. It is designed for just the right amount of hold and works every time. Urethane is great but it can grab hold and NEVER let go! The tape comes in a couple of thicknesses so take your window and channel in and they will give you the right stuff.

Use the correct tape and not a "glue." Youll never get it out if you glue it in. And more than likely, you will need to get it out sooner or later.

Use the tape and forget the glue, it will work but it is a mess. As Willys said, the tape is designed especially to work with the channel and glass. Place the tape in the channel and tap the channel onto the glass slowly with a rubber mallet until it is fully seated.

Sorry about pulling up an old post, but I couldn't find the information I was looking for. Maybe didn't look in the right place.

Anyway, I got glass setting tape. It is the cork and rubber type. It has a very fine cloth like mesh on one side and is plain cork and rubber on the other. Finally, to my question. Does it matter if the mesh is touching the channel or the glass? If so, which is the correct way?

Cloth touches the channel. Cork and rubber on the glass.
