Rated 1.0 out of 5.0Â by david86440 Shrinks, Shrinks, Shrinks The Un-Amazing Disappearing Weather Strip
I installed this weatherstrip prior to having my house painted so everything would get painted at the same time. Less than a week later it had shrunk and curled on the bottom so I cut the damaged section out and replaced it with a new piece of the proper length that I had left over. That lasted about another week before shrinking another inch at the bottom and slightly less at the top.
It appears the sun affects it as the side of the door that is shaded had less shrinkage. This was temps in the 90's at most. I can't imagine what it would have done in the summer heat in 110's plus.
This was a complete waste of time and effort to install as it had to be removed and returned for a refund.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0Â by Tom3 Seals well, easy to install. Some tips.
This is easy to install weather stripping that does a good job of sealing a garage door top and sides. I did run across some issues installing it and wanted to share some tips.
You're going to have to cut the two pieces for the side down to fit your garage door opening. What I did was mark the length then I cut the rubber weatherstrip part with scissors about an inch above the cut line so that there would be a little bit of the weather stripping at the top when installed. Then I cut the solid part in a miter box. This gives a better seal in the corner and cuts the flexible part cleaner than the saw would.
When installing. Start with the top first. Then do the sides. Make sure the door is closed when you're installing the weatherstrip and that you can keep it closed for a bit so it can help keep it's shape. I made the mistake of opening the door too soon and the weatherstrip on the sides wound up being on the inside when I closed the door so I had to redo it. I kept the garage door closed for about 3 days just to make sure it remembered the right shape.
It's much easier to install with two people so that you get it aligned and pressed up to the garage door well while you're trying to nail it in place. Even when using a nail gun it was much easier with two people.

This product is real cheep its only 5/16 thick,
And the seal is very flimsy and about 7/8 long... Home Depo did tack it back, thank you... And as I was looking I did find the weather strip I was looking for at Home Depo..The good stuff is a 7/16 ths PVC board with a heavy seal that's almost an 1 1/4 long...

The weather stripping around our garage was yellowed and cracked. The door are oversize, so it was hard to find weather stripping long enough that it didn't have to be pieced. I found just the right thing on HomeDepot.com. My teenage sons were able to take down the old and put up the new. It looks great, and was a valuable learning experience for my boys!

I took down my old plain rubber weather strips from around my garage door in favor of these. Covers the large gaps I had between the door and the frame, AND it looks nice with the vinyl. Basically, it looks like I have nice molding going around my garage door. I recommend using an electric saw to cut; I started cutting with heavy duty scissors, and it started to crack.
