One thing to look out for there is that a lot of the cheap Chinese ones will outgas plasticiser for weeks, months, or possibly years, so check reviews for complaints about them smelling before buying.

Following with interest....


I was looking for info on how to fit a door seal and came across a Youtube video.


The interesting snip I saw was the compressible strip... whereas the Dick Smith is a solid strip... 



Well spotted. If it was me, I’d be wary of a solid strip - may not seal at all well if the strip and the bottom of the door are not perfectly parallel.

Sometimes I just sit and think. Other times I just sit.

Alternately the job of the strip on the floor is to provide a step that stops water and is durable enough to be driven over. The flexible air seal should be on the bottom of the door.
