Please explain measurements for the 58-171

A quick learner from Ft Walton Beach, FL says:
My weather stripping measures about 9 mm across the foam diameter. The "extension" measures about 7 mm from the bubble to the tip of the extension, as suggested in your video.

Your 58-171 measurements are taken from the diameter of the bubble, and the the width of the extension channell - rather than the distance from the bubble to the tip of the extension - as suggested in your video.

the width of my extension channel is about 5 mm

Also, are the measurements shown in your 58-171 photo mm or inches?

Thanks for posting. First, the dimensions shown for our 58-171, and all products on our site, are in inches, not millimeters.

As for the height, the fin of this bubbleseal is different from bubbleseal like, say, our 58-053. The most important measurement for the fin is the "T" portion, which actually slides into the slot. The length from the tip of the bubble to the end of the fin isn't as important as that measurement.

Thanks for the clarification.

The width of the "T" fin is about 5 mm. or 1/4 inch - as visible in the photo.

What replacement part do you have that will fit?

It appears that the 58-171 would be the closest match that we can provide.
