Compression Weather stripping

A home owner from USA says:

My home was built 21 years ago and instead of using metallic weatherstripping similar to your product code 58-008 the installer used compression stripping for lock, hinge and top.

Do to the fact I already purchased the 58-008 kit, I found that the magnetic strips DO NOT stick out far enough to make a tight seal and there is no way to modify the catches on the lock side.

Is it possible to purchase 12 of the 81" compression hinge side weatherstripping? I can

Sounds like you may want one of the foam type weatherseals. See our 58-056 or, because you said your gap seems to be wider between the door and jamb, the nail in type 58-169. That way you can adjust the weatherstripping to your door.
