Steel Entry Door Weatherstripping


I have an almost 40 year old steel front door. I have looked and can find no indication of who the manufacturer was. The original weatherstripping was a white, very large compression type that looked like the gasket around a refridgerator door. It fit into a slot in the door jam. It got pretty grungy so I pulled it out thinking I could go anywhere and get a replacement product. Wrong--The stuff you find in the home improvement stores is just too small and doesn't stick.

Does anyone on this forum know what the original product was and where I can buy it.

Thanks

Try a glazing supplier or a hardware store. I have found some weatherstripping profiles at the big box stores and what you are describing is not out of the ordinary.
