    Q:How do you install it?
    by|Nov 26, 2023
    1 Answer
    Answer This Question

    A:  This fits into the channel in the door stop. If you are not replacing an old worn out one, then your door may not have a channel for this kerf seal and it will not work. A foam tape or an aluminum/vinyl door set might be the answer.

          Very good product to use around an exterior door application. I removed the existing stops on the frame. I used screws to apply the new stops (1" X 2") and I could loosen and tighten to install the new weather strip (to be able to install the attaching leg on the vinyl and be able to create a kerf). Including the top door stop. I bent each end of the new W.S. around the corners at top of frame & applied stick on vinyl foam on header to finish off the weather stripping.

          After waiting around 4 or 5 weeks to get the product the overall quality was good. Inner foam core is dense and grey in color which keeps daylight from penetrating through. The only unfortunate thing was I ended up with one piece defective. The inner Kerf plastic liner that goes into the kerf joint wasn’t properly glued into the foam core. As a result, it deemed that piece useless. Bob

          I recently install these door seals on 3 brand new exterior doors. The ones that originally came on the door either got dinged or lost during painting. These were easy to trim down to length and appear to be of better quality than the seals that came on the doors. However, the one issue that i noticed is that these seals make it much harder to close the door. I even had to adjust a few lock strike plates to get all of the doors to properly close. I compared this seal to a new one that we were replacing, and what i noticed was that the profile of the seals are virtually the same. The big difference is in the density of the foam core. With the original door seal you can squeeze the seal between your index finger and your thumb and it will completely flatten out. You cant quite do the same thing with the frost king seals. The foam in these replacement seals is much more firm and it does not compress down as flat as the seals that came on the door. After leaving the seals on the doors for a few weeks, I noticed that it was not nearly as hard to close the doors. So they may just need a little time to under the constant pressure of the door and the jamb for them to settle down into place.

            Cheap door seal.
            I guess you get what you pay for. I bought 3 of these to replace the old seals on my front door. I cut the pieces to size and installed them. Now it takes brute force to close my front door. And I cant dead bolt it without extreme effort. This is the EXACT same size seal as the one I replaced, only it is alot stifffer, keeping the door from shutting correctly.

            Exactly what I needed; this fit my door perfectly! The original stripping around my door was beige so I replaced all of it with this white Kerf which required 3 pieces (this is NOT a kit as others have mentioned in the Q&A; this is a single 96 inch piece). I had the job completed, including removing the old Kerf seals and cutting the new ones to length, in just over 10 minutes. The white color matches the white door frame and is a much nicer look, in my opinion, than a different color Kerf. REMOVAL You may need to use a flat blade screwdriver to remove the old seal but only to get it started. Once you have one edge separated from the door, you can just gently pull and it comes away from the door like peeling away tape after painting. PREPARATION Once you have all the old removed, take a close look at how the top and side Kerf/slots overlap or how they do not. It's important to understand how each corner at the top of the door overlaps to insure you cut the pieces the correct length. For example, I needed a full "door length" piece on one side, 95% "door width" at the top and 95% "door length" on the other side for the top corners to meet properly and create a complete seal to the door. INSTALLATION To install the new Kerf, just press the PVC piece into the slot on one end and slowly work your way to the other end. You don't need any tools, you can just press it in by hand. I found standing outside the door with my thumb on the outside of the frame, wrapping my fingers around the Kerf and closing my hand was the easiest way to install it. Be sure to lay your piece in properly so the "top point" of the Kerf (where the two foam edges meet) always faces towards the center of the door opening. Now the next time the dog decides to tear it up, I'll know what to do.
