A few installation tips:
Door Sweeps – Open your door and grab the end of your old doorsweep with needle nose pliers and pull it out. If you have trouble sliding the new doorsweep in, try a little liquid soap to make it slide in easier.
Weatherstripping – Pull out your old
weatherstrip and discard. You have three new pieces – two magnetic and one
compression. Start with one of the long pieces (magnetic for your lock jamb,
compression for your hinge jamb) and push the flange into the kerf (cut) in the
jamb down at the sill. Since weatherstrip shrinks a little over time, push the
weatherstrip down tight against the sill, as this is the point we don’t want to
ever leak. Use a wood block or other smooth hard object to seat the
weatherstrip as you work your way up the jamb. Use a utility knife to cut the
excess at the top. Repeat the procedure for the other vertical jamb, then
install the short weatherstrip piece into the head jamb, cutting the excess with
a utility knife. Now go outside the door, armed with a putty knife. Close the
door and check to be sure the weatherstrip is making good contact all around.
Where it is not, use the putty knife to move the weatherstrip out from the jamb
a little to get good contact with the door. You are finished!
