The dimensions of my old weatherstripping is not the same as item 58-178. Do you have other dimensions?

Can you tell me exactly how the 58-178 differs from your weatherseal? That is the best match we can find, and it's hard to tell how different the measurements are based on these pictures.
A home owner from Ivins, UT says:
Did you try the 58-178 and did it work?
A professional from New Jersey says:
I have been a window/door technician for many years. That being said, I have found weatherstripping can be a very versatile product. In most cases a similar part will perform the same as the original. In some cases a minor modification to its application may be necessary, however there is always a way to adopt it to the project at hand. As long as the specifications are close and the way it attaches to the window frame is in the same method, more than likely it will serve as a good replacement.
