Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by SeattleHandyman206 Works but doesn't fit as well as original.
I bought this to replace a worn out weather stripping on one side of front door. I needed 3 packs, each 84' length. Removing old and installing replacement was easy. When I closed the door to check the gap between the door and frame you could see a small gap in some areas or that it didn't look as clean. If you have any gaps <1/4 then it looks fine. If gap is 1/4 or more, then you might have problems. It because the fold is like triangle bend vs the orig which was more round shape. Its a slightly more stuffer than the orig. foam one. So if have big gaps then better go with the Frost King one instead. Thank you

I was surprised at just how easy this was to install. The existing weatherstrip was losing its effectiveness and it was time to upgrade. The way this installs its by fitting snugly into the door frame - there is no sticky surface to fight with. Took all of five minutes to remove the old one (which installed the same way) and put in this new one. The quality feels good, and the white color blends in nicely.

I probably should have paid more attention to the package. I thought I was getting replacement weatherstripping for the entire door. This package is just one 84" length -- good for one side of the door frame. It was very easy to install and sits well in the door frame. The door closes without any issue. I'll have to pick up a couple more packages to replace all around the door frame.

I bought this to replace about a two-foot segment of the original weatherstripping my dog had chewed off on the bottom part of my front door. This was a perfect match for color and style of weatherstripping, so that was a very strong point. I simply cut the old weatherstripping about an inch or two above where it had been chewed up to make a square bottom edge, made a square cut on the new insulation, cutting it about an inch longer than needed. I butted the two square cuts together, inserted the flat side into the groove in the door jamb and ran it all the way to the bottom of the door. At the very bottom, I ensured it was tucked back inside the sill plate, cut off the extra material I had left to be sure it would be long enough, and that was it. The gap was sealed perfectly to light and any air loss or penetration.
Easy fix, effective, and very good value.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by FloridaGator Easy replacement installation if existing door frame has standard groves.
If your existing weatherstrip is worn, hopefully your door frame has standard groves that will allow you to install this replacement strip. Simply cut to length you need for either the door step or the side frames, remove the existing strip, and then install the new strip. For longer door frames, it can be difficult to pull the new strip through to the ends. I also would recommend leaving a little extra when you start since having the strip too short would negate its purpose of sealing the door frame when the door is closed. The corners are difficult, but if you cut on an angle, it should line up well enough to seal the corners as well.

If you need to replace one section of a door's weatherstrip this will do fine. One side of our front door's strip had worn out. We pulled the old strip out, wiped the door jamb clean with a rag and inserted this replacement. You will want to be sure that your door has a slot that matches this strip. No tools or adhesives needed, it installs in a minute.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Woody Much better than old seal
2 days after moving into our bew home I felt a significant amount of cold air coming in on the knob side of the exterior door jambs. The top and hinge jambs have the magnetic compression stripping so i only needed 2 of these, one for each door. Ripped out the bulb type stripping on both doors and replaced with this. Can still see daylight but no more draft and im happy with that. Very easy to install and removing the old kerf stripping took some work but once it popped in ine place the redt came right out.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by DIYinUT Good seal, but not enough for entire door
I had a exterior door that was needling to have the weather stripping replaced, as I could see day light coming in through the crack. Installation was easy enough, remove the old stripping and then just press this into place, no glue or nails required.
My only complaint about this product is that there is only enough material to do 1 edge of the door. If you need to replace all of the weather stripping. this will require 3 packs as there is not enough remnant left over to do across the top of the door.
It provides a good seal, as we've had this installed for 3+ months with no issue. but I just wish there was more of the product on the roll, which is why I gave it only 3 stars.
