Weather stripping and bubble seal

A home owner from Texas says:
Hello, I received the rollers you guys helped me identify and they're perfect. Now, if you can help me find the correct wool pile and bubble seal, I'll be back in business and, once again, have a sealed and quiet door. Attached are four photos showing the pile slots and cross section of the 'square' bubble seal.

Thanks in advance for your reply.

Hey, Curtis. I'm glad the rollers we suggested worked! As for the wool pile, we will need you to remove a piece of it and send us some photos of its profile. I will also need its dimensions, specifically the width of the base and height of the pile.

As for this square seal, I'm not sure if we can supply it. What is that square part made of and what is the relation to the window? Is it a glazing vinyl to hold the glass in place?
A home owner from Texas says:
Hey Dave, I do not have an example of the wool pile. From measurements I took, I believe the 3/16 x 3/16 should fit. And you are correct about the vinyl glazing, it spans the entire frame and holds the glass in place.

Thanks for clarifying. It's so hard to say what you need without more information. Looking at you photos, the groove for the base of the wool pile looks wider than 3/16". Can you double check for me? Also, the height looks more like 5/16", to fill in the gap on both sides. If I'm right you could consider our 58-042.

I'm afraid we do not have a match for that seal. Nothing in our catalog matches it and I haven't been able to find anything that does.
A quick learner from Texas says:
Hey Paul, good call on the 58-042 wool pile. It fit and sealed the door perfectly. I'll picking up another length soon to add to the other door in need.

Enjoy your holidays.
