My question is related to the height of the weir in comparison to the inside height of the skimmer opening.

Unfortunately I could not find a weir anywhere, and when I google the make and model of the skimmer (Make:Atlantic, Model: Paws, 22-9117-56), nothing comes up which is frustrating! I measured the inside of the opening to the best of my abilities, width 5 7/8" x height 5 1/8".

I have found a universal spring loaded one on amazon that is 5 7/8" width, but the height is 4.57". Will it be okay that the weir height is just over a half inch short when it is sitting in place? Thank you!!

Weir I am looking at

It should work. You will just need to keep your water level below that last 1/2" of height you don't have on your weir.
