Supplies and Tools:
Corner Seals Package (4)

Mrs Baker had purchase a pre-hung door approximately 8-years ago. The door was in constant use by her family of 6 and the door was showing wear. The corner seals of the pre-hung door.

This post shows the six steps to replacing the corner seals on a pre-hung door.

Step 1: Fig.1 above right shows the corner seals. 
Step 2: Fig.2 shows the use of scissors cutting apart the bag to release the door seals.

Step 6: Fig.6 shows the last step is to cut off the excess seal flush with the door. Now Mrs Baker has her door again without leaking air to the outside or heat inside her home. The rest of the door was just fine, the threshold plate was flush with the door and did not need adjustment. The rubber strip was still in good shape and also at this time did not need replacement. Fig.7 shows the job is finished.
