Great door sweep. It is a tough monkey to cut. It has steel wire in it and it fits so tight and doesn't even let light in. Fit it to a door that leads to the garage. Easy to install on the bottom of the door. I used my metal cutting blade on my oscillating cutter and it took its time cutting the rubber and I didn't understand why till I looked at the cut edge after I was finished. Steel cables running all through the rubber of the sweep. Makes it super strong and not flimsy like some sweeps. After installation I went into the room and looked under the door to see light, well there wasn't any to be seen. It fit that tight. I felt for colder air coming from under the door and there wasn't any. I am impressed. This is a great product. I don't think a mouse could chew through this.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Oceanside Provides a nice tight seal and keeps the critters out of the house
I purchased a security door from Home Depot, but when I tried to install it myself, I saw it wasn't going to fit. So I returned it (not a problem with Home Depot purchases) and then scheduled a professional to come out and do a door measure.
It was 1/2" off from the standard, so Home Depot built a custom size door for me and installed it.
There is a small gap at the bottom (which is standard) so the door sweep was just what I needed.
It seals right up against the bottom jam and provides for both an air seal and keeps spiders, bugs and other critters from getting inside the house. I enjoy being able to leave the front door open to allow the breeze to bring in fresh air. And when I'm in the back yard or back of the house, I don't have to worry about anybody being able to walk in the house.
It took me about 30 minutes to attach it to the door, following the instructions and using the included hardware. Drilling is necessary.
Now with the bug sweep in place, my cat can wait all day for a lizard to come in. But sorry, Bear, you'll have to do your lizard hunting out back because my new Residential 36 in. Aluminum Pest Control Door Sweep keeps out lizards and even small bugs and spiders from coming in.
It's a great product!

This is a well made door sweep with stiff rubber sweep on the bottom. Very easy to install and closed the gap I had between the bottom of the door and step. The sweep is made of strong rubber with metal inside which will make it impossible for a rodent to penetrate through and get inside. I would definitely get this door sweep.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by mtf419 Durable, high quality, but requires some work
The Xcluder door sweep is probably the highest quality on the market. However, it does require a bit of work. It comes in only standard sizes, so there is a chance you will need to cut it to size (you'll need a hacksaw and strong shears). Also, the holes are not pre-drilled (which would make a world of difference), so you'll need a fairly powerful drill and the correct size drill bits to get through the steel. I have a cordless drill and one overnight charge was not enough power to drill 5-6 holes (it comes with 6 screws, though you may only need to use 5 if you've cut it to size). Honestly, drilling the holes was the longest part of installation. Also, it says to mount on the outside of the door, but it works either way. I was replacing an older interior door sweep and this worked just fine on the inside of my residential door.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Baze It just works
For small items like this, you want to install them and never have to think about them again. This door sweep hits the mark - it is easy to install and works like a charm. The installation was very easy, although with my metal apartment door it took longer than expected, but still under 20 minutes. It squeaked a little when first installed (the entryway is not level since it is an old building), but that went away after 2-3 opening and closings.
Overall, very satisfied with the product, will see how long it lasts (expect it to be a long time since it is very durable).

Well made product, good weight and holds well in to the door. Make sure the dimensions are correct with your door before you buy though. You won't be able to adjust/customize.
