Winterizing Patio Screen Door

I need to install plastic sheeting on my patio screen door. All of the windows are already wrapped but I have a problem with the door each year.

When I was a kid, we always installed plastic on the exterior of all of our windows using a waxed cardboard tack strip. It was about 1/2" wide and worked great. I have been trying to find this locally and online but have been unsuccessful.

Does anyone have an idea of where such a product might be found or a better search phrase than "waxed cardboard strip" or "tack strip", neither of which has produced any useful results?

Any suggestions will be gratefully received.
