Replacing weather stripping on my door

The door going from my garage to inside my house has a rubber gasket on the bumper threshold. The rubber gasket is ripped and I need to replace it. This gasket has a t-end with a width of about 1/4 an inch. The gasket part has a D shape. I can't find anything that matches it on the internet. I took some pictures of it and I hope you they post correctly.

If anyone knows where I can get this rubber gasket please let me know. Thanks.

Finding that particular part may be difficult unless you knew the manufacturer. Since you have the threshold out, you can replace the entire threshold with an after market one off the shelf. I'd take it with me to make sure I got the right one.

It will be difficult to locate that piece of weatherstripping. Replace the entire bumper threshold available at HD.

OK. Thanks.

I will have to drill new holes to install the new threshold. Any tips on setting the threshold screws in concrete? I will first have to drill a new special drill hole before I put in the screw, right?

For concrete I like to use dome shaped drive pin anchors like this: Simpson Strong-Tie 1/4 in. x 2 in. Zinc Nailon Pin Drive Anchor (100-Piece per Pack)-ZN25200 - The Home Depot

Unlike screws they hold securely and won't snag things as they pass over them.
