A quick learner from Wooster,OH says:
What is dimension from the bottom of the seal to the top (magnetic seal) ? aka-Dimension from the 3/8 dimension line to the magnet ?

I need to fill a 1/2" space for this seal to work and seal against the face of a steel door .I have a 3/8 deep kerf which this seal would fit into.

Thanks for your response .

Thanks for posting! The portion of the 58-008 that you have specified compresses, so there is no exact measurement for it. That said, it can range from 1/2" to 3/16".
A quick learner from Wooster,OH says:
I am assuming the non-compressed dimension is 1/2". Is that correct ? If so I think the seal will work .I will shim it to aloww a 1/32-1/16" compression which is similar to the present seal .
Please confirm my assumption .
Tanks for your response .
