Endura Flap 'Draft Stopper'
Also known as 'Center Post Weather Strip', its purpose is to seal the drafty gap created between stationary and sliding glass doors when a panel pet door is installed. These are essential for an air-tight fit for your dog door panel and to maintain the door insulation and prevent energy loss when heating your home. Some customers use two--one at each end of the gap--for an even better seal. This provides a more airtight seal than a diy weatherstripping or foam tape insulator. The sliding glass door Draft Stopper is especially useful and designed for pet door inserts to stop cold air and improve the sliding patio door seal.
This will work with any brand panel pet door for sliding glass door. Adhesive is 1/2" wide and begins inset 1/8"- Overall width is 1 7/ 8". Color choices are black and white. Get the correct size option based off the door frame door height.
This product is included in all Thermo Panel 3e, Quick Panel 3 and Thermo Panel 2e Microchip patio pet doors for sliding glass doors.
Step 1: Clean the area with rubbing alcohol where you are going to apply the draft stopper. This will allow it to adhere better.
Step 2: You can put the draft stopper on the back edge of the sliding panel or if your sliding door is on the outermost track you can put it on the front edge of the stationary panel. We recommend your draft stopper is installed inside and not on the outside where weather can cause it to fail. If it is too wide, you can trim it, but be careful that the line is even, or else you will have gaps where air can get in. Also you want the edge of the weather seal of the draft sealer to just barely kiss the glass. If you overlap, it will wear down the adhesive and will not stick for long.
Step 3: Start at the top and as you are unrolling it remove the covering off the self adhesive as you work your way down. This method allows you to have more control in order to get a straighter installation of the adhesive backing.
Step 4: When you get to the bottom, trim off any excess.
Note: Depending on the top and bottom tracks in order to get it to go the full length of the slider you might need to notch out small sections for it to fit inside the rails to completely cover the slider.
