Questions & Answers

Does the rubber piece already come connected to the steel piece?

I have both pieces at home but find it almost impossible to connect the rubber piece to the steel piece. I have tried dish soap and oil but it wont budge! If I buy this set from online does the set already come connected?
Asked by: j01012004
No. The rubber piece is packed separately. The reason is because the aluminum track needs to be screwed into your door BEFORE the rubber seal is slide into the track. When you go to remove your old track, you'll see what I mean.

rodent resistant?

Rats love to come into my garage. Will they chew through this?
Asked by: jcwlv
The aluminum channel certainly not, but we would imagine they can chew through the vinyl seal. Thank you for your interest in our product. M-D Building Products

1-5/8 in. x 18 ft. Aluminum and Vinyl Garage Door Bottom is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 39.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from A replacement part that actually replaces! Know how you need a replacement something, but your part doesn't quite match the shape of the replacement part? Like when you buy a universal remote that only does some of what your old remote did? Or finding a replacement garage door sealer on a 12 year old garage door? Well, this isn't that. The bottom of my garage door isn't flat. It's bowed in the middle. They don't make the rubber gasket any more. They don't make garage door like that either. But, this replacement has an aluminum piece that fit right over that and only required some longer sheet metal screws to attach. Attached the aluminum support, slid in the rubber gasket and VIOLA! done and done! The rubber even formed to shut the gap in the garage floor of an inch. Still functioning in a Minnesota winter.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product! I am very happy with this product. I have combined this with a tsunami seal on my garage floor and now have no more rain water coming underneath. The product comes with four 4.5 foot aluminum mounting brackets and a single 18 foot long vinyl seal. Brackets are easy to drill through and install. Screws are included, although if you have an unusual garage door like mine you may need to buy longer ones. The vinyl seal is a little tricky to slide into place, however spraying the mounting grooves with silicone spray will make this much easier. Overall I have been very happy with this product!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Does the job of keeping out the weather out These were easy to install. Just use a little lubricant to help the rubber slide through the aluminum rails. The only thing I did not count on was that when water freezes under these the rubber has a tendency to stick to the ice and partially pulls out of the rail.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product for sealing bottom of garage doors. Product is great - devised a new way to install. Have an 18' wooden door. Choose to install the 9' section on right side, first. I drilled holes in the aluminum and put the two 4.5' sections together with duck tape at the seam. Used the spray solution of water and dish soap to make the rubber base slide more easily on the track. To give this rubber substance and form, I pushed 1/2 inch foam pipe covers into the 9' hole. I placed the 9' section on the concrete and let the garage door come down on it. Used a pencil to line the top of the aluminum plate and then drilled the screws into four holes to hold. Then, I raised the door to a workable height and finished putting in the remaining screws. I had made a hole about every six inches. I was now ready for the left side of the door and repeated the above steps. When inserting the 1/2" foam (2.97 for 12 feet), use plenty of spray to push the foam into the rubber molding. (to make this easier, get 1/2 PVC and this really makes the foam go in better) I took my time and did one 9 ft. section one afternoon, and the other side took the same time. However, I have no more gaps between my concrete floor and the bottom of the garage door. First time in 35 years. Hope the above installation steps are helpful. Whatever the width of your door, just cut the rubber in half insert in the two sections. If door is 9' wide, you will receive two 4 1/2 aluminum sections and one rubber piece that is nine feet long. And, always start from the middle and work to the sides of the garage to insert the foam pipe cover. Can go to the end where garage rail is and insert the other end. The rubber weatherstrip is tight against the concrete and looks great. Although the aluminum plates are level all the way across, they are not level with the bottom trim of the garage. So what, one really has to look hard and be really a perfectionist to see this. Replacement of the rubber will also be much easier down the road. I did not have instructions but had read all the other reviews. I analyzed the project and devised my own installation steps and it worked great. Hope you try this. BUT, this is a project which is not to be rushed -- take your time - pace yourself.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Overall a great product This is a good product relatively easy to install, but with a few glitches. First more self tapping screws should be included you will need more to hold the aluminum firmly to the bottom of the door. Also you might want to predrill small holes to start the self tappers. P.S. Have a good sturdy drill to set the screws.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This Replaced the Original. Excellent quality. Removal of the old weather strip AND aluminum frame made seeing how to install the new set easy. The old weather strip was dried and cracked. I simply cut it away to expose the screws. Once I unscrewed the old frame, I could see how to install the new frame. Unfortunately, you must install the new frame BEFORE you install the rubber seal. (The rubber seal blocks your ability to screw the new frame into the door.) This isn't a negative, its just being mentioned here so you know that in advance. Once the new frame is installed (and you may need to cut the frame to fit your specific door) ALSO make sure you line up each section of frame perfectly - once this is done, then rub some dishwashing soap on the "T" portion of the rubber seal - this will help you SLIDE the rubber seal down the length of the track. I prefer liquid soap - it works the best. Be patient and careful as you slide the rubber seal... you don't want to rip it. (But if you do, you can buy a replacement rubber seal from Home Depot WITHOUT the aluminum track to save you $$). Note: Once rubber seal Is slide into place, on the end, tuck the excess into itself. Leave a little sticking out on the ends - enough to make a good seal at the corners but not long enough to bump and rub the door brackets as it opens and closes. Once install is done, lower your (electric) garage door and make sure it fits. Note: If you have an electric door, and it goes back up when it hits the floor, you may need to adjust the garage door motor. (there's 2 setting dials you can adjust your door with). Sit back and enjoy the new job! (and know that doing this yourself just saved you about $150 installation.) PS. If you are a one person installer, you can use painters tape to tape up the frame as you screw the frame in.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Easy install. Seems to work well. The original seal for my 29 year old Stanley steel door was almost $100.00 shipped. Only one manufacturer. This $40.00 unit did the trick. Now a replacement vinyl seal is available locally. Do not use the cheap small self tapping screws that come in the pkg. Drill pilot holes in both the rails and door bottom and use a quality SS tapping screw. I also wire brushed and sprayed a coat of Rustolem on door bottom before install. TIP: I installed 3 sections of rail, starting on the left side of the door. Installed the seal from right to left and pulled it past the 3rd rail. Cut and installed the fourth section, and easily pulled the seal through the fourth rail and cut off the excess. This gives you full front access as I could not get behind the door rail.
