Metal Door Rattle

After a few years of use a metal door will not fit tightly when closed.  At those times, when a breeze blows or internal air conditioning turns on you might hear a rattle from the door vibrating against the jamb. 

What most people donít notice is that there are flexible bumpers inserted into the jamb and over time they get compressed or even disappear.  There are two or three used on each jamb and there is a special wire tool that makes installation easy.

If yours are just compressed, you can use the installation tool to simply push them inside the frame, making the hole ready to receive the new bumper.  If they wonít push in, just use a knife to cut them off.

Door bumpers are a standard size and can usually be obtained from a local door company.
