A higher 58-162

A home owner from Mount Prospect, IL says:
I ordered the 58-162 replacement sweep for my storm door. It fit perfectly in the track but the 1/16" difference between the replacement and the original leaves a noticeable gap that allows air and bugs to pass under the sweep -- really wish it was a little higher.

Thanks for posting feedback on the 58-162 Bottom Sweep.

Unfortunately we don't have a higher version of the 58-162, but there are a couple other sweeps you may want to look at. For example, the 40-003, 40-004 and 40-005 door sweeps.

You may find these sweeps give you more flexibility when it comes to height, and could possibly make up for that gap where you're experiencing air flow.

Mike,

Thanks for the additional information. I looked at these, but waasn't sure if the vinyl strip could be removed so I could insert it into my door. Also, couldn't tell dimensions of just the vinyl strip -- do you have these dimensions? Once I have this information, I will know which one will work.

Again, thanks for your assistance.

Of course! It's my pleasure.

Now, the vinyl insert for these sweeps are not removable, but are adjustable, so the height of the vinyl itself isn't an issue.
