7/16" x 1/4" wool pile?

A handy person from randolph ctr. says:
We purchased part #58-050 and the pile is 7/16 it is to high. The 7/16 base is what we need. We need a door strip that is 7/16" X 1/4"or very close to 1/4".
Thanks for looking, CC

Thank you for posting. I am afraid we don't have anything in the same size you need. That said, what we have may still work. What I have done in the past is give the wool pile a "shave." One example is when I installed the 58-050 on a pair of aluminum commercial entrance doors. The base fit, but the pile was too tall. I then took a single-edge razor blade and ran it down the edge of the wool pile while it was in the door, very gently. You don't want to take too much off at first. I shaved it down until I had the height I wanted so the doors would close together. Would that be an option for you?
