    I have a kitchen door which rattles at times when it's very windy outside.
    The flooring is tiles in the kitchen which I'm not makes a difference.
    Obviously there is a draught coming in but not manage to isolate it yet.

    What my issues is the door rattles slightly.
    When the door is closed and I push against it, it's rattling against the frame.

    How can I fix it properly? Or should I just put some draught excluder inside the frame.

    re-position lock keeper- just transfer it closer to the door stopper for 1-2mm :)

    Some keeps have a metal tab that you can bend to put more pressure onto latch - saves moving keep

    Either way, an easy job

    Unscrew the keep, bend the metal tab or chisel new opening, screw the keep back on. 1 screwdriver, 1 pair of pliers or hammer and chisel.

    Have a look to see if you have a plate that bends out easy with flat blade screwdriver... [​IMG]
