Q: Do Door Sweeps go on the inside or the outside of the door?
A majority of Door Sweeps should be installed on the inside of the door, since most entry doors are "in-swinging" doors. A door sweep attached to the outside of the door would be only be used for an "out-swinging" door. A good rule of thumb: you don't want the door sweep to cross the threshold when the door is in motion.
Q: What size drill bit do I use on door sweeps?
Use 1/8 inch drill bits.
Q: What can I do to make sure the Vinyl Inset Fits Correctly?
First, soak the Vinyl Insert in a tub of warm (but not hot) water, with just a drop of liquid soap, for about 10-15 minutes. This will make the Vinyl Insert more pliable and easier to work into the threshold grooves. Once the Insert is warmed up, it should be pliable enough to slide into the threshold groove with no problem. If the insert is just being stubborn, a plastic putty knife or plastic spatula can help guide the insert into the grooves for a snug fit.
