On the stops, a pic would help as it depends how it is set up. You can make it work one way or the other, you may just need to add wider stops at worst.
Finally gotten to that yesterday and was unable to install it: door stop is too narrow. Looks like I may need to have at least a 1 1/2 wide door stop there, or 2" preferably. As I mentioned earlier, one side of door stop is 3/4" and the other one is 1" wide. Top is 1" wide *with* the flagpole bracket in the way. So I may have to work around that.

So, I may have to replace the door stop first before I can install the weatherstrip. These things always turn out to be more laborious than one anticipates.

Sorry for bringing it up up again... Having a hard time finding 1 1/2 wide door stop locally - it's all 1 1/4" wide. I was wondering if all in one solution, ie door stop *with* that same type of weatherstripping built in, would work better instead:

Wood and Vinyl Clad Foam Door Sets with Stop

Does that seem like it would work OK? Thanks!
