Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by JoBee Worst quality I've ever seen!
I purchased two packs of the Window Air Conditioner Vinyl Panel Kit (AC-202) on 6/22/09 from my local Home Depot store. I installed them on 6/23/09. Today is 6/26/09, and both sets of panels have completely split apart. In each case, it starts with a small split in one of the folds and then it completely rips open, leaving a hole in my window. I am currently holding them together with duct tape.
I am extremely disappointed with my purchase, and the manufacturer should really re-examine the strength of this product. I noticed that it is very thin between each fold, and it is clearly very easy to tear since I've had four folds rip completely open in three days. That is some of the worst quality I have ever seen.

Like the other reviewer, I purchased two packs of these air conditioner replacement accordions last summer and within DAYS after I installed them, they completely failed. It is worth noting that the accordions were extended about half-way. The peaks of the accordion folds are like tissue paper, and even the slightest stress causes them to rip. This is one of the WORST products I have ever bought. It should not be on the market at any price.

If you're lucky these things will last a year or two, and then they'll crack. They provide zero security. In fact, my dog got scared during a lightning storm and jumped through one of them to get out of the house. Better to have a handyman make you some sturdy wooden panels.
