    Weather Striping Came loose on Bottom of Door

    Post  nhoj on Sun Mar 30, 2014 4:05 pm

    The Garage door is only around 5 years old and the weather striping on the bottom of door pulled out of grove where it belongs is there any why one can fix it so it will stay in?  Mad  Mad  confused 

    Is there a cement that you can use to hold it in the grove?

    I cannot tell you the name of the door, I looked all over for the name of it. You would think that there would be a name on it.

    I don't recommend that you glue the seal to the door. The key is to have the correct seal. If it's a "T" seal where the "T" parts of the seal slide into the retainer then you'll need to get the correct size "T". If it's too small it will fall out & if it's too big it won't fit. It may be 1/4" or 5/16" "T". Or you may have the single "T" seal or a bulb seal. Obviously knowing the correct type of seal would help. There's also another product on the market where the seal and the retainer is all one piece and is easy to install. You just screw the retainer to the bottom section. I'm sure one of your local garage door companies either has this product or can get it for you. You'll need to tell them the thickness of your door & the width of the door.
