SWISCO - The Replacement Hardware Authority

Winterizing Patio Sliders

A home owner from USA says:
I am trying to improve the efficiency of 35 year old sliding glass doors (my house has five of them). I have found some items on your website but there is one thing I have not found and one item that needs to be replaced but has me stumped as to how to do it. I have included some photos since both are hard to describe.

First, the material I can not find is wool pile on top of a dense, stick-on foam pad that fits in the bottom track, beneath sliding panel, right where the fixed and sliding panels come together. Please excuse the dirt in the photo - this is before cleanup.

Thanks for posting. Would you be able to use a stick-on seal like our 58-184?
A handy person from Illinois says:
Thanks for your suggestion but I don't see how that part would help.

If the 58-184 won't seal the gap, then the other other seal I can think of is our 58-026, which is an adhesive wool pile. Otherwise, a local hardware store may sell an adhesive seal that you can use.
