Probably the size of the saw blade.

Just a guess though.

Try calling Lowes to have someone check it.

The stuff from Lowes states in the spec sheet that it fits in a kerf slot, so I would first try a thin kerf blade on a test piece. If that seems too tight, then try again with a full kerf blade. Calling Lowes might help, but in my experience you’ll be on hold 95% of 20min. call only to have someone tell you what’s written on the package then say “sorry I couldn’t help you more.” Contacting the manufacturer, in this case M-D Building Products, would probably get you a better answer to your question.

Might vary by brand. I believed I have used a plywood blade. It has a thin kerf. experiment a little and find something that will hold it securely yet it will allow it to be puled out for replacement.

Standard factory jamb kerf is 1/8” @ 1/4” from edge of door to allow the door to close.
