Help - I have about an 11 year old house and the steel entry door is giving me problems. When the door is closed and the deadbolt is latched, the door is tightly sealed against the weatherstripping. But I have kids and they seldom latch the deadbolt when closing the door from inside, and don't (obviously) latch the deadbolt whenever when they go out. When the deadbolt is not latched, you can see air coming from all sides of the door. I bought a replacement magentic weathersripping kit today and replaced the weatherstripping, but nothing new - still see the light on two sides when the deadbolt is not latched. What can I do without ripping out the strike plate, which means tearing apart the door jamb?
