You are going to use the 2X4 for a pivot point at the door latch and then push the portion of the door that is not sealing towards the closed position. That will tweak the door and make it lay flat. It will be a trial and error thing.chrischandler71 wrote:I am having same problem. Can you elaborate a little more on solution? Do you put 2x4 behind latch, and close door? Where do you apply pressure from top? Top of door, or top of latch?

I think my issue is that I need to adjust at latch.. the whole side of door with latch attached has small crack from top to bottom. If I push door closed with had while watching latch, I have a good bit of play between door latch and strike plate, maybe 2/16 inch. I think if I adjust. Latch 1 to 2 click in that will seal my door. What do you think?
