  1. My old door sweep was screwed in the same spots as my new one but the screws won't tighten anymore. It's a mix of sheet metal and wood at the bottom of the door and the previous screws were self tapping. I'm afraid to use bigger screws and mess it up more.
    What are my options?

  2. There is a very specific, proper door sweep for this door. I have the same door and am looking to purchase the actual part that fits like it supposed to. I can't find the right profile on any of these door sweeps at Home Depot, Lowes, even Amazon… Does anyone here know where to get the correct part for this exact door??

  3. Not all sweeps are the same. Just this week I had 3 different situations. The U channel/ C Channel like this video, a duel fin rabbited style- that gets tapped in – with a piece of wood and a folded type Fin style. Before you get in too deep check the correct one to buy.

  4. Being a do it yourself older lady, I can’t seem to find the right drill bit, (none of mine worked near as easy as yours..)..and the instructions did not say to put screws on the bottom of the door, but I had decided to do that anyway. Glad to see you do that….and caulking was a good idea as well.. thanks for your help.

  5. THIS GUY IS INSANE! DO NOT REMOVE THE DOOR! TOTALLY UNNECESSARY AND YOU MAY WELL HAVE PROBLEM PUTTING IT BACK ON! WHAT DO YOU EXPECT FROM A CLOWN WHO WAITED 6 MONTHS TO REPLACE THE DOOR SWEEP?

  6. Recently bought a house with this type of sweep on the man door or a garage. The water accumulated in the sweep which led to a lot of wood rot on the bottom and hinge side of the door. The water also ran out both sides of the sweep (presumably got into the sweep from water running down the door) and this led to rot on the wood jamb and deteriorated interior drywall at the bottom. I wouldn't recommend this type of sweep.

  7. Typically the gap under your door will not be big enough to accept this type of door sweep. You'll likely need to cut off the bottom of your door to accommodate the sweep. You can check first by sliding the sweep onto your door while it is still in place. If your door is metal, it is tough to cut, I would use a different type of sweep that installs only on the face of the door and use 100% silicone behind it. While your at it, install a bead of silicone where the jamb legs meet the threshold after cleaning and drying thoroughly.

  8. Thank you. I am sick of waiting for my husband to do this, I Am going to do it myself. But why remove the door? Can’t I just slide it on and put the screws onto the sides only? I haven’t seen them screwed from the bottom.

  9. Things settle and move over the years too or sometimes even new doors are slightly askew and all doors dont have the exact same gap between the door and the threshold. Thats why they make these sweeps adjustable. You may have to adjust just a couple of screws once you have it installed to make it contact the threshold in just a certain spot. Happens all the time. How would you do this if its caulked and screwed from the bottom?

  10. LOL im sorry buddy but I'm laughing. A friend of mine watched this video and I just had to go redo it for him. Im do not want be a jerk here or cause any hard feelings between you and this comment. That is NOT how you install a sweep. That sweep is adjustable. Dont caulk and screw from the bottom obviously. No need to remove door either. I have never ever seen this before. It makes no sense. When you screw from the bottom you remove the adjustable feature of the sweep. It would be a 50/50 chance that door sweep of yours wouldve contacted the threshold upon re-install.
