I am trying to re-insert all the glass inserts of my storms. For winterproofing, does one insert go on the outermost track and the second one in the middle track, or do both go on the outermost track to provide a kind of seal?

Also, to help me save time in matching up all the panes I have to re-insert, are the two glass inserts per window the same size, or is one larger than the other? It sort of looks like one is slight larger in order to fit in the middle track, while the smaller one fits the outer track. This would make sense if you use two tracks (outer and middle) for winterproofing.

Thanks in advance.

You have 2 glass inserts and one screen insert.

Each insert has a slightly different width to go into each track.

This might varry by brand, but the ones that I have worked on recently the first (most outside) one is glass that is the narrowest and tallest. While you can put then in other order it is easiest if you put that one in first. It goes all the way to the top.

Then the next glass insert and it goes to the bottom and then the screen.

THANK YOU!! So helpful. I just put the three windows in and did it because of reading this article. I felt like I"d never figure this out, but your article really helps!

See this is a rather old post, but the info was very helpful to me just now as I was trying to reinsert my triple track storm panes. Thanks!
