    Any Lowe's, HD, Marnards, local hardware should have them in stock.
    Very common item.

    Compress the rubber, set it in the track and push down on the bubble to force it it.

    A little WD-40 and a putty knife will help.

    Not everything they sell is sold on line.
    Bring in a sample and tell them what it's for.
    I've been replacing those things for at least 30 years in 4 different states and every "hardware" type store had them in stock because they were just a really bad idea to begin with and were sure to fail.
    I've replaced all my thresholds with adjustable ones with the seal on the door.
