How to install a storm door (Page 2)


Step 5. Measure from the doorway sill to the rain cap to establish the length of the latch-side mounting flange.

 

Step 6. Cut the latch-side flange with a hacksaw Work carefully so you don’t pull out the weather-stripping from the flange channel as you cut.

 

Step 7. Inst the latch-side flange with a couple of partially-driven screws. Then check that the opening width is the same at the top, middle and bottom. When you’re satisfied that this flange is parallel to the hinge flange, install all the mounting screws securely.

 

Step 8. To install the door sweep, slide it over the bottom of the door and install its mounting screws loosely Make sure the sweep forms a tight seal with the sill, then tighten the screws.
