Can anybody tell me if automatic door sweeps can be cut to size?  I see some that are 36" long but I need  to install one on a 30" basement door.  I'm looking for the kind that can be screwed to the inside surface of the door and springs up at an angle when the door is open.  There are a couple of brands I see (Frost King & M-D Building Prod.) but I can't really find info on how to install them.  Thanks

Take a look at Pemko. They have good technical info on their site. The 4301 model may be what you want, available as short as 18".

I have used different models throughout the years. Love 'em. They can be cut to any size you want with a hack saw.

Must be cut with a hacksaw so that the hinge is not damaged. Biggest problem is placement of the closing cam on the stop trim- using the supplied larger screw  may split the stop trim molding so the cam cannot stay on securly so drill a pilot hole or use a smaller diameter screw.

thanks to all -- I did find what I was looking for on the Pemko site the second look around and --- I'll remember to install the cam with a pilot hole --- thanks!

I would contact the folks at MD Building products and find out what your options are.  Their website is mdteam.com
