Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Seamus Not the easiest to install initially
Had to be ordered online as not stocked in store but very easy to do so. Full returns policy. When installing it caught quite a bit and was difficult to pull across. I discovered it was much easier to stretch it out across the full length then starting at one end pop it into the track using a pool screen tool. Installed in minutes. Get a friend to help hold it in place. It's not as deep as the original one but seems to doing the job just fine .

Let me start off by reminding potential buyers that there are TWO SIZES for the T-End bulb seals - a 3/8" and 1/4" (referring to the width of the top of the "T" and corresponding to the size of the groove in your door). I wasn't sure which one to buy because when I measured the trapezoidal groove, the shorter side of the trapezoid was 1/4" and the longer was 3/8". I guessed and bought the 1/4"...and it was wrong - doh! The seal kept slipping out of the groove. Thanks to HD's return policy, I was able to return it and ordered the 3/8", which fit much better.
Installation was a piece of cake. I removed the aluminum runner from the door so I could work on the ground, then cleaned it with a rag and air compressor. Even at a 60F ambient temperature I was able to work the seal into my 16'-long runner by myself in about 5 minutes. Yes, the seal comes folded many times in the box but it's very pliable and unfolded easily.
The only reason this didn't get 5 stars is because I wish the bulb diameter was greater than 1". The old cracked seal I removed was at least a 1.5", probably 2". Still, the new one gets the job done.
Since HD's photos for both the 1/4" and 3/8" are identical (grrr...), I'm attaching a photo of a small section of the 3/8". Hopefully this helps someone decided between the two sizes.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by RP46360 Good product - the key is ordering correct size T-end
First, neither major chain in my community sold this product. Home Depot is about 20 miles from my home, so on-line purchasing was a great convenience. I had already removed the trim from the garage door and it made the removal of the old seal and installation of the new much easier. I sprayed the channel with silicone and the seal slide right into place. A little problem with the crease from folding the seal for shipping, but no biggie. I had read one review that stated the seal kept falling out...he probably didn' notice is comes in 2 sizes 1/4 and 3/8 in. I almost missed it. Very happy...my old one was flat and hard as a rock.

The seal was not as firm as I would have preferred and was more difficult to install because of this.

Worked well for a 20 year old garage door seal that I could not find locally. Pretty cheap and installed easily.
