    Measure the new threshold

    Check the space between the door and the floor. It will allow you to make accurate measurement of the piece of the vinyl bulb door threshold that you need to install. After you are done with the measurement, cut the threshold that you will fit under the door. Place the threshold slightly outward, leaving small space at the corners.
