Belt Weatherstrips which are also known as beltline moldings, beltline weatherstrips, window fuzzies, cat whisker, window felts. There are two beltline weatherstrips on each door. Inner belts are the weatherstrips along the interior beltline of a door that prevent water, air and dust from entering the vehicle. Outer belts are the weatherstrips along the interior beltline of a door that prevent water, air and dust from entering the vehicle. The outer belt is also an exterior ornamental component that can have chrome, stainless steel beads or color to give the vehicle a nice look.

Door Seals (on body & on door mounted) are the main weatherstrips that prevent water, air, dust and noise from entering the car or vehicle. Door seal weatherstripping can be attached to the door or the body of the vehicle using clips, fasteners, tapes, glues or fit into a channel. Many newer cars have primary and secondary door seals to provide greater control from the outside environment.

Window channels which are also known as glass run window channels, felt channels, division bar channels and quarter window channels. Glassruns are weatherstrips, located around the sides and top of a moveable door glass, that prevent water, air, dust and noise from entering the car or vehicle.

Trunk Seals (Rear Compartment Seals) are weatherstrips that prevent water, air and dust from entering the trunk of a car, tailgate or rear storage area of an SUV or crossover.
