Close the door and loosen the screws on the door sweep. Let the sweep drop to the sill, across its entire width, and tighten the screws, as shown. Press the glass retainer strips into the top and bottom of the frame, and snap vinyl screw covers over the rain cap and both rails. Finally, lay a bead of sealant along the top edge of the rain-cap flange and the sides of the mounting rails.
