Where can I find a Patio Door seal?

My patio door seal is all torn up.. I just noticed this winter when the wind was whistling in from the top and the bottom. It is an interior door that leads into a 3 season's room so it wasn't terrible but I can't afford another winter..

where on earth can you find a replacement seal for a patio door? I've searched online for days, no luck, I've been through Home Depot, Lowes, Menards and Ace hardware... no luck.. the door is old and you can't read the manufacturer information but it appears to be just a standard patio door, nothing special, double pane glass, it looks like low E..

Any ideas anyone?

thanks!

If you could post some pics of what the old stuff looks like or at least where it goes I might be able to help.

Re: Where can I find a Patio Door seal?

I have the same issue, just installed some "new to us" sliding patio doors, & unfortunately the seals between the jamb & door were removed before we got the doors. Doors otherwise in great shape, they were on their way to the recycle yard when we saved them.

They’re Alcan doors, & I need the “T” shaped seal that slides into the aluminum side jamb. I’m guessing it’s made of vinyl, the part that slides into the jamb is 5/16” wide, & the whole seal is ¾” high.

I’ve searched locally & on the web & haven’t found a thing.

Ideas?

Thanks!

I found that site, no joy there.
Here's a couple of pics of the 1 seal I do have.

Narrow part of the seal slides into the jamb, & the long part seals up against the door. 2 per, one on each side of the door.

Thanks!
