This is a special tadpole door gasket (it is shaped like a tadpole with a 3/8" to 1/2" round section attached to a 1 1/8" flap) it has an adhesive on the flap for ease of installation.
The Owner's manuals don't do a very good job of explaining the door gasketing, but some units will also need glass gasketing tape (if the current glass gasket is worn, note: the tadpole/door gasket wears out more frequently than the glass gasket) Also, Quad doesn't sell or list the glass gasket as a separate item in any of their parts lists.
Consult your manual and parts list available on our web site for confirmation on this and any parts.
