Caradco door weather seal

A home owner from Nellysford, VA says:
I have Caradco swinging doors (one side)that lead to outside spaces.
I need replacement weather seals. When I look under door it appears there are three rows of seals. The doors were installed when the house was built in the 1999-2000 time frame.

Thanks for posting. I'm not really sure what weatherseal you have, exactly. Could I see a couple pictures of its cross-section? I'll need to see it shape.

Alternatively, you can browse through our Weatherstripping Section and see if anything here can match your existing seal.

Finally got some help to take door off hinges to get pictures of weather seal.

I'm sorry, but I cannot identify what you have based on these images. I need to see its shape. Can you take a picture of its cross-section?

Check out our Weatherstripping Section to see what kind of picture we need.
A quick learner from Nellysford, VA says:
I thought I added these two pictures to the others, must have sent too many.
Hope this shows enough. It looks like it is about 1 1/8 " from slot to slot and about 2 1/4 " total width. The door is 34 1/2 " wide.

Great, thank you. I see what you're looking for now. I think you should check out our 58-176 and see if this would work as a good replacement.
A quick learner from Nellysford, VA says:
I purchased the 58-176 as recommended. The product has pre-drilled holes on one side. My question is which side of the door should the side with the screws be facing? My door opens to the inside of the house. So should I install it so that the side with the screws to hold the weather stripping are on the outside?

I recommend installing it so that the screws are on the inside.
