Can Stanley Sta-Tru #28915 Sweep be cut to fit?

A home owner from Belford, NJ says:
I need to replace the door sweep on my Stanley Steel 32" door, installed in 2000, and your part 58-191 looks like what I have now. It also desperately needs to be replaced.

Can this be cut down, and do I have to remove the door in order to replace this?

Door is a Stanley Sta-Tru and the label on the edge has the number #28915, if this helps identify the door.

Thank you.

Thanks for posting! Yes, our 58-191, prime door sweep, can be cut down. I would use a fine tooth saw or a hack saw to cut it, or any type of saw with fine teeth. Just make sure that the attaching legs line up to the ones in your door.

You might be able to install it without taking the door down, but it might be easier so that you can get a good look on what you are doing.
