Asked by VeroV June 27, 2020

You only need one. If you have a considerable gap at the bottom there is about a half inch of aluminum where you can drill holes higher to adjust the height / drop.

Asked by Mia June 13, 2020

Thank you for your interest in Xcluder Door Sweeps. So long as the gap under your door is less than .75" and you're able to screw the sweep to the bottom of the door you should not have a problem. It also sounds like there may be a raised threshold for your door, if that is the case there may be some considerations on whether to install the sweep on the inside or outside of the door. If you'd like to give our customer support line a call at 847-495-0029 one of our technical people would be happy to assess the situation and make some specific recommendations for the best installation.

How do you install this on a metal door? Can it be glued or a magnetic strip? My door isn’t solid...

Asked by TicaChica July 29, 2019

Residential metal doors are typically not solid metal. However, I just used a drill bit for drilling through metal. The provided screws worked well. The door sweep is still secure after two years plus. My door is an older metal door installed in 1996 with an MDF core not a wood core. It will be more secure in a newer door. Tape it to the door first and open and close the door to ensure it will smoothly sweep over the floor (floors aren't necessarily flat) and not get caught.

can you install this on the inside of the door? or do you have to install it on the outside?

Asked by stef June 24, 2019

Outside only

How easy is the installation? My diy skills is beginner level e.g. caulking, painting, assembling some small furniture.

Asked by SJ May 11, 2019

Relatively easy. You'll need a drill for pilot holes and a saw if you need to adjust the length.

Difference between commercial and residential version

Asked by Ck January 17, 2019

The commercial version is designed for applications where there is heavier rodent pressure. It contains twice as much Xcluder filling as the residential sweep and is guaranteed for life against rodent penetration whereas the residential sweep is guaranteed for 5 years against rodent penetration.

Keeps Them Out
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.

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!

Well Made Door Sweep
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.

Good Product
This is my second purchase. It is easy to install and nothing has chewed on it. It has a thick rubber and has metal mesh throughout. It also has additional stainless steel mesh inside. If you need to cut it to size make sure to use the provided clips that close the sides.

Easy to install. The aluminum frame is easily customizable for different door sizes. The rubber is really strong, but moves well when opening, sealing back snugly when closed. Fits really well and haven't seen any evidence of mice inside (chewed through the previous plastic door bottom - also replaced) since I installed it. Would highly recommend.

This is a fine concept - woven steel thread throughout the rubber blade and clips on the end where rats like to enter.My bottom door height was too high for the blade to touch bottom, so I got some aluminum material and extended the height of the blade where it attaches to the door.Worked out well.
