Garage door seal retainers for the top and side of the door come in various sizes, designs, and colors. Our 1" and 2" wide seal retainers come painted bronze and white. They also come as milled. These have a standard aluminum appearance to them. The 1" and 2" aluminum retainers have the slot at different angles. A straight aluminum retainer has the slot pointing directly outward from the rest of the retainer, as shown in the 2" Straight Bronze retainer. The offset retainers have the slot pointing the same direction as the straight retainers, but the slot is raised a little above the rest of the retainer as shown in our 2" Offset Milled retainer. We also sell a 1-3/8" Offset Milled retainer (STR-138OFFM). Our 1" retainers also come at 90-degrees, which points upward from the flat part of the retainer (see STR-190M). Both 1" and 2" retainers come at 45-degrees. This angle, shown in our 2" 45 Degree White retainer, points outward at an angle half-way between the straight and 90-degree angles. The Reverse 45 Degree is also at a 45 degree angle, but the slot points down away from the flat part of the retainer. The slots on the retainer come in two sizes: Standard and Large.
We also sell a 3" offset standard-slotted seal retainer. There are more 3" and 5-1/2" retainers with the larger slots, which all come milled. The 3" retainers come straight, at 45 degrees, and offset. The 5-1/2" retainers only come straight and at 45 degrees.
For rolling doors, we sell a retainer that clips onto the track.

DELAYS AND INFLATION: COVID has interrupted global supply distribution chains resulting in unprecedented delays on incoming door and dock industry products. The result is limited availability of many products, two to three month delays on incoming shipments, and an inflationary rate of over 100% on most of our products, and 200-300% on many of our core products such as springs and cones.
SHIPPING CHANGES: Shipping times are currently not guaranteed, even on next day and second day shipments. Normal transit times do not apply. Shipping prices on items over 10 feet long have tripled in many cases.
SPRING WIRE AND CONE SHORTAGES: We currntly have a good inventory of 2" ID springs and cones. However, due to cone and wire shortages, we currently do not have cones for the residential 1 3/4" and 2 1/4" ID springs. For these sizes many customers are reusing their existing cones. If you need the larger inside diameter springs for commercial doors, there will be a one to two month delay on your order. If you are willing to wait two months for your springs, please note that in the comment section of your order. We deeply regret the hardships this will create for many of our customers.
