Stained Glass Panel Installation

This is probably not your normal question for this doors and windows section but I though that someone may have some insight for me.

We have a stained glass panel, approximately 49 inches long and 7.5 inches tall which is to be installed into a transom vinyl window. The catch is not to drill any holes in the vinyl window.

I'm looking for any ideas.

Thanks in advance

Re: Stained Glass Panel Installation

Glue it to the existing window, using a tube of silicon caulk.

If you EVER want to take the stained glass off the window, use the caulking VERY sparingly (ie. don't run a bead of it all the way around the window) or you'll take the stained glass out of the window in very small pieces. (voice of experience speaking)

Just put a little gob of the caulk at each corner. I mean very little. About the size of a pencil in diameter. It has incredible holding power. Use some masking tape to hold the stained glass in place for 12-24 hours. Then take off the tape. You're done.

Good Luck.
