1/4" kerf compression weatherstrip needed

A handy person from USA says:
I have a entrance metal entrance door that has kerf compression weatherstrip but the kerf is 1/4" not 1/8". I cannot find any replacement weatherstrip. Do you have any?? Thanks

Can you show us a few pictures of the kerf in question? That will help us find what you need. Can you also give me more measurements? Finally, make sure your picture can clearly show us the profile (aka cross-section) so that we can make out the shape. Thanks!

Attached photo of my 1/4" kerf weatherstripping showing the round part that goes in the kerf. From the round part to the end of the part that touches the door is 1". The width is 5/8". Thickness about 1/8". Thanka

I have Peachtree entrance doors at home with weather stripping that looks similar to yours. When I replaced the weather stripping, I could not find one with the larger kerf. What I did was use our 58-169. I nailed it in with small nails, making sure it made contact with the door when it was closed. I did it during the daylight hours so when I installed the 58-169 I could see the daylight and adjust it toward the door until it blocked out any light.
