I've tried the sticky foam door sealing strips but they come off as soon as I close the door.

    The strips need to be applied in the warm weather so that the metal is not cold. The warmth makes the glue adhere better.

    I would use the metal strip and rubber gasket on the door frame.... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YJyc3e_EgL0

    I don't know if you have a Lowes close to you but I just purchased a "flat profile door jam weather strip kit". It is aluminum with holes for the screws and rubber strip. It has 2 sides and 1 for top of door. It has Philip screws that screw onto the side of your door jam and the round rubber pushes against your door. Don't put it too tight, you can adjust as you go and it works. It is 20 something dollars but it will stay in place. I would give you the item number but my husband has the receipt in his wallet

    Look into magnetic weather strip for steel doors.

    you would have to use a paint primer and paint the edge your putting the strips on, after letting the paint to dry first eric
