Garage Door Weather Stripping KIT


This is a complete Garage Door Weather Stripping KIT that is to be used on 1-3/8″ thick doors with Tongue and Groove bottoms.
This retainer fits perfectly into the bottom of doors that have the T & G bottom.
Doors with T & G bottoms are common, many manufactures use this type of system because it allows them to use any section as a bottom section. Using this T & G retainer gives the door a nice clean look both inside and out. However, doors with T & G bottoms can use other types of retainers as well.

Check with your door manufacturer before purchasing this product to make sure it has the T & G bottom.
A intermediate section of a garage door becomes a bottom section, simply by adding a retainer and sliding the weather seal into the retainer.

Easy to install.

Installing the Garage Door Weather Stripping Kit can be done by one person but it helps to have two people especially to slide the weather seal into the new bottom retainer.

In some cases you will able to install the retainer over the existing retainer, but in most cases it is preferable to remove the existing retainer; this typically gives you a better mounting surface for the new retainer.

Hold the first length of retainer up and onto the bottom section with the end of the retainer even with the end of the garage door, mark the retainer if any trimming or notching is needed. Using a hand saw or a hack saw, trim the retainer as needed. Now install the retainer using the provided screws. Continue this process with the remaining lengths of retainer trimming and/or notching the final length of retainer at the other end of the garage door.

Once the new retainer is installed securely to the bottom of the garage door insert the T portion of the weather seal into the slot on the bottom of the retainer. Here is where it is best to have two people involved, one to guide the weather seal into the retainer and the other to pull the weather seal along the length of the garage door. We use WD40 applied into the channel of the retainer to help the weather seal slide. When you have pulled the weather seal the length of the garage door, make sure that the weather seal is not stretched or stressed. Once the weather seal is installed, trim off any excess weather seal with a sharp utility knife leaving approximately 1/2″ of weather seal beyond the edge of the garage door. You can run a screw into the retainer channel to hold the weather seal in place.
