I did similar frames a short while ago and what worked best for me was to squeeze the ends of the frames for a tighter fit on the glass, fill the bottom of the channel with sealer, then lay them down on a sheet of plywood and put small hooks in the open end, then use string tied to eyes screwed into the ply to pull them open wide enough for the glass to slide in without dragging the sealer.
