XSleeper those boxes are 4.5" and a lot of lights use a 4.25 or 4.375. Surprised how tight it's been even with some lights 22" tall. It's a major irritant. Maybe it's my desire for the type of light...

Are locking astragals universal?

The astragal on our french door is broken. Are they mostly universal so I can simply buy a replacement? Our door doesn't have any markings on it so I can't refer to the manufacturer.
