1. The surface temperature of the frame must be above 50º F. for the adhesive to bond.
2. Clean frame with clean wipe provided to remove dust, oil, grease and dirt. Wax coated or high gloss painted surfaces may require roughening of the surface with a scotch brite pad or sandpaper so adhesive will properly bond.
3. Measure and pre-cut pieces to fit the head and jambs.
4. Remove protective backing 1 to 2 feet at a time.
5. Position on frame where illustrated, allowing approximately 1/16'' between seal and frame for clearance when compressed.
6. Adhere by pressing firmly (approx. 15 lbs. pressure required) straight down along entire length of gasketing. Do not remove and relocate. WARNING: Do not rub along length from one end toward other end during installation as gasket will stretch and not adhere properly.
7. Make sure the seal does not impede proper closing and latching of the door.
