    I am looking for a Letterbox draught excluder but my Letterbox is in a wooden door with glass and its small.

    The appature is 21cm Wide by 6cm high. The bolts that hold it on are with square nuts on the inside of the door.


    Any ideas size wise?


    Thanks

    As it's a wooden door, you can recess the nuts if necessary, or fit polished Acorn nuts to make a feature of them.

    If the outside plate is a good fit, and the spring not broken, it should not be draughty.

    An inner cover is usually oversized.

    Ordinary brass will need weekly polishing outdoors, once the lacquer wears off, but Brass PVD on Stainless seems to stay bright.

    Or, like me, you can have two sets, swap them over when the lacquer fails and fit the refurbed one.
