Does anyone know where I can buy a gasket like the one in the photos? This seems like it would work much better than all other options I've seen at Home Depot and Lowe's. This is not from my house, rather, a mobile home someone just moved into the area down the street from me.

Thanks!

Try a real hardware store, big box stores only stock what sells fast.
You may have to change the threshold witch may require removing the door frame.

Ok, I will check my local Ace Hardware. If I do need to buy another threshold, do you know of a good place to do so? I checked on MobileHomePartsStore.com. They sell a lot of doors, but no thresholds.

Thank you!

That is something many big box stores do have. You will have to cut cut to fit since most come 36" long.

I found out there are two kerfs on the bottom of my door that are designed to firmly hold a special seal. So this is the one I ordered, in case anyone else may find this helpful:
