Larson storm door, sweep likes .5" meeting threshold

A quick learner from Franklin Ky says:
Where can I find either a 2.5" to 2.75" width door expander (bottom) in bronze? For a Larson storm door. I special ordered this door as it is a 30" wide door. The old Larson door that was broken fit height fine but the metal expander was 2.5" wide.
Or if I could find a 1" wide rubber gasket (one that came with the Larson door is a double sweep but only .5" width)
A quick learner from Franklin Ky says:
Pictures added as requested: if the expander was 2.5 " or better still 2.75" "deep" instead of 2" problem would be solved.
Thanks very much

Hey, thanks for posting. We do carry the surface mounted 40-001 door sweep with a total height of 1-7/8", but that also looks like it would be too short. Unfortunately, you might need to reinstall the door and add a piece of wood trim at the top of the door opening to bring down the door to meet the threshold. This is what I've had to do in similar situations.
