The stripping itself is easy to install, though it helps to have another person pulling on the end once you get about halfway along the door. I actually ended up sliding only one edge in the track, then used the end of a metal construction ruler to press in the other side.
I installed the seal in July and had no problems, but now that Minnesota winter has started, I've noticed the seal is not flattening out enough. I've got some bad gapping occurring at spots, I can see daylight under the door which also means cold air is entering my heated garage. I tried to compensate by adjusting the down force of my garage door opener but that only cured perhaps half of the gaps.
You can press and feel that the rubber is much stiffer and not as compressible, certainly not as much as whatever seal material the garage door came with originally (wish I knew where to get that type of seal).
So I will have to find another way to fill those gaps for the winter, but I expect when summer finally swings around again I will look to replace this seal with something else.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Frustrated A disaster to install - don't purchase!
This was wrapped very tightly into a flat roll which caused folds in the outer edges which were to be inserted into the garage door bottom tracks. These folds made it impossible to keep in the track - they caused it to constantly pop out after getting a couple of inches into the track. Finally by hanging the entire strip from a gutter in the hot summer sun and using a heat gun to smooth out the roll, it was possible to install - however, even then it took 2 people over an hour to get a 9' strip installed. Complaints to the company received no good response.

As it happens, there are multiple types of garage door bottom seals. Broadly, threre are the type which slip into a track and the type which is nailed to the bottom.
Of the former, there are at least two variants - one, such as the one reviewed here, which has sides ending in a "T" shape, and another which has sides ending in a cylinderical shape.
I did not look before I lept and bought this product. After spending quite some time trying to insert it into the door bottom track, I finally looked closely at the track and discovered that I needed the cylindrical-edges material. Home Depot does not seem to carry this, so I found it at a relitively-nearby garage door speciality business.
Reading some other reviews, I wonder if others needed a different seal as well.
As far as quality, this product seems to be about the same as what I purchased from the garage door speciality location, though, of course, I have not directly tested it.

The quality of this product is very poor. Would not install in the track even with lubrication. Went to a garage door company and purchased the weatherstripping and installed it with no problem.
