Three eighths of an inch is the longest of five rubber tines, but it mashes down to about a quarter A very tight seal has been achieved on my door using the Dennis Premium door bottom I purchased from Menards. There is no play in the metal bottom guides because the rubber strip on the Dennis product fits snugly in them.
Vinyl replacement I have is only one inch wide and 36 five eighths long, and has the item # 25756. As long as the slot it slides into on your metal threshold is no wider than 1', this should fit in it.
36" by 15/16" is the size of this item. When I purchased it, it was listed as measuring 1 1/8" or 1 1/4". I was a little concerned about the width because there seemed to be a lot of play when I inserted it in the metal frame, which gave me the feeling that it could fall I crimped the metal on both ends when I installed it, and it has not caused any problems. As a result, the original rubber would wear out much more rapidly because it was too tight. Having three of these on hand at the price listed actually cost me less than the cost of one There is a status update.
I had to trim the length of the metal channel on the bottom of my door, as it is 1" wide. It slid in snugly, but I did have to adjust the width. After the original lasted thirty years, I had this for about a year, and it worked perfectly.
