Rated 1 out of 5Â by Homeowner Do not buy this replacement seal
I bought this U-shaped replacement seal for my Clopay garage doors. After removing my old seal and cleaning the double track, I found this product fairly easy to slide in the tracks and cut to proper length. In the cool morning sun, it looked like it would work fine, although it seemed loose in the tracks. By lunchtime, it heated up in the south-facing sun and was so soft that it was just barely hanging from one end of the tracks, the rest completely loose and out of the tracks. It is impossible to keep in place, even in this moderate early summer heat (75 degrees), not at all an unusually warm installation location. The product is useless for me, and now I will see if Home Depot cares about customer satisfaction.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by PeaPicker ProSeal garage door bottom seal w/T-ends
The seal on the garage door was old, dried out & cracking with several gaps allowing rain and pest in but the ultimate motivation was the snake my wife encountered inside the garage. Before you start this project make sure you have the correct seal that fits your garage door track, if possible carry a three inch long piece of the original seal to compare 'T' track width. DO NOT REMOVE THE WIRE CABLE ON EACH SIDE OF BOTTOM DOOR, THEY ARE ATTACHED TO THE SPRING COIL!! While replacing the bottom seal can be accomplished by one person, an extra set of hands will greatly help. Remove the old seal, clean the 'T' track with a cloth and inspect that the track gap is uniform the full width to the garage door bottom and adjust gaps as needed. I sprayed the 'T' track lightly with silicone spray lubricant and threaded the the replacement seal a foot into the tracks. With one person feeding the seal into the 'T' slot and another gently pulling it along, it can be finished in little time.

Rated 1 out of 5Â by Homeowner Follow-up on this product
I just wanted to follow up on my earlier unsatisfactory review of this product. First, I am happy to report that the manager of my local Home Depot was exceptionally helpful and provided a full refund for my product. Thanks!
Second, a few details about replacement seals that might prove helpful to others: my Clopay garage doors have an aluminum double-track guide to hold the rubber seal, so this U-shaped "T" style seal is the correct type to use. If you have a similar system, you will need to check to see if your door takes a 1/4" or 5/8" width "T" (the part that fits into the track). The reviewed product here is widely advertised on many websites as fitting Clopay doors, but its 1/4" "T" is too loose in the aluminum track, which actually requires a 5/8" T. This accounts for its ease of installation --it slid right in!-- but also for its falling out of the track, a problem very much exacerbated by the softening of the rubber in even moderate sun. So, when you take out your old rubber seal, be sure to measure the width of the "T" part of the seal to make sure you buy the proper sized replacement.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Edweirdo Easy and economical
Our door maintenance people had said it would be about $50 per door to replace the gasket (they claimed it was a special part just for those doors). Plus, they could never be bothered to order the part to do it. So, I researched on HD.com, found exactly what I needed. Probably took an hour to remove and replace, saved $80. Worst part was removing the old gasket. It was fossilized and required some muscle. Make sure you clean the tracks before installation - maybe even some silicone spray might make it easier.

Rated 2 out of 5Â by sp3019 low quality material
Much thinner material than original seal. Kept popping out during installation. Not sure how long it will last. I would check with the door manufacturer for a better quality item. You get what you pay for!
