Sealing the Lascala's doghouse.


Recommended Posts

In a similar situation I used foam weather stripping.  Getting the right angle bend worried me even though I thought that under compression the bevelled edges (like a picture frame) will mush together.  I did not investige further.


Then I tried using the foam sheet which HD sells as a liner for tool drawers.  It was too gummy and would not allow the hatch to open .  You know the cable saws HD sells to cut PVC?  I had to get the cable in the gap but it was a messy job.


Next time I may cut the gasket from a yoga mat .

Hi @KT88


The equivalent in Europe of the foam presented by @DizRotus is the Monacor MDM. It exists in several widths MDM-5, MDM-20, MDM-30, it is easily found on the net at the usual merchants in Germany and Europe: Thomann, TLHP, Lautsprechershop Iris Strassacker ...

In your local DIY store, window gaskets work very well in general, be careful to take the right thickness according to your configuration, neither too thick nor too thin.
