    Hi my door opens inwards as seen on pic, which way down does the strip go down into the groove for the door to close against it from inside?

    Cant believe I cant understand this one haha

    is it this way 1 or this way 2?
    thanks

    The curved bit should be facing inwards i.e. towards the house when looking from the outside.

    The ribbed part goes into the threshold groove and the curve faces inwards so the bottom of the door engages with it when closed, thus creating the seal :)

    You keep holding it horizontally. It should be inserted vertically with the curve facing inwards towards the room/house, like this:

    Those rain thresholds strips take a lot of hammering to get in....and they don't come out again.
