A glass run channel is a groove, normally made of rubber or plastic, that is found around windows (most commonly car windows).[1][2][3] The primary purpose of a glass run channel is to provide a seal for the window, though the channel also serves as a groove into which broken glass can fall, making it easier to remove broken glass later on.[Note 1]

Cleaning[edit]

Owing to the small nature of the channel, glass run channels can prove difficult to clean (or to remove glass from) without the use of a specialised cleaner.[4]
