Incorrect measurement — measure twice, cut once

filter_2
Not using the compressive seal inward opening doors (Type B)
filter_3
Insufficient / incorrect surface preparation

When there is a surface mounted bolt on an inward opening door the RP5 has to be cut to edge of bolt. There will be a small RP5 component on the other side of the bolt which will need to be screw fixed.
