Pella Storm Door Replacement Bottom Sweep

A home owner from Hamden, CT says:
Do you know if the 58-162 will work as a replacment sweep for a Pella storm door? The Pella has a brass looking gizmo that goes on the bottom of the door with a rubber sweep slid into a track in the bottom. I want to make sure this will work before ordering.

It is possible, I am not sure if the 58-162 sweep will fit a Pella storm door. The 58-162 is often used to replace the door sweep on Forever storm doors (Andersen/Emco).
A handy person from Westborough, MA says:
I'm wondering the same thing. it looks to me that I might have to lower the bottom "brass looking gizmo" (I can't think of a better name either) to compensate for the shorter length (3/8 vs 1/2) and then these standard 3/8 wide products would work fine.

I have a Larsen Storm Door and I need a bottom sweep. The number on the door is 68001082 212040714. The sweep has a "T" shaped top on it about 1/4 inch wide.
A home owner from New York says:
larson is a pella door, do you have to remove the sweep holder and take it in to see if something will work?

I don't believe Larsen doors are Pella. From my understanding, Pella bought out the "Cole Sewell" door company, not Larsen. Check out the various vinyl sweeps on our site.

I have a Cole Sewell Storm door and am looking for a replacement bottom sweep. I hate to throw out something I can fix. Any idea where I can get a replacement part for this door since Pella bought out Cole Sewell. Winter is coming! It has the brass plate on the bottom with the vinyl sweep in a small triangular groove.

Thanks for posting! Unfortunately, they don't make a longer sweep that I know of. Now, I think that your storm door is most likely standard, at 80" tall. Your opening is taller than the non-standard height, which I assume is where the problem lies. You could pack down the door on the top with a piece of wood trim to make the height shorter so as to match up with the storm door.
