Does anyone know where I can buy one - or does anyone have one and want to come by for a beer?

I'm curious... What is a lockstrip tool?. I'm assuming it's used to lay / seal the window moulding?

That's right - it basically lays the sealing strip into the rubber u channel - the tool looks like this...

FYI that tool is completely useless. I've replaced several windshields in e30's and I just use a flathead and my thumb. I threw that tool in the trash.

I've done it with the tool, it works great, once you get a starting run the length of strip takes about 5 seconds to slide in.

I've also done it with a flat head and my thumb years ago, I remember it being painful.
