1970s style door sill weatherstripping

Hello,

My house was built in 1970 and has the original exterior doors still. On the door sill is a metal strip about 1.5" wide that houses a rubber bubble seal that the door would sit over when closed. The one on the front door is torn and doesn't make a good seal. I replaced it last fall with an under door style from Frost King. It sealed the door good but it doesn't allow for a rug to be put in front of the door as the under door seal is so low it would drag on the rug and make the door unusable. I'd like to go back to the original style if possible but cannot find that style anywhere.

Does anyone still make this style?

You can buy them at almost any hardware store.

I couldn't find this style anywhere in stores or online. Is there a particular name for it?

Check the sizes available in the pull down menu options.

Awesome! Thank you! I live in NY state so no Menards here for me to have checked. And I had checked the M-D site and didn't find it there either. Thanks again!
