Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DGlK New Formula for 2014?
I used this product last year (2013), and it saved the day. Hardly a breeze came in my windows where I used it. In Michigan, with all the Polar Vortexes, this was beyond beneficial. I saved quit a bit on my gas bill too.
I just bought more to reseal the windows for this winter/keep bugs out who want to get warm, and noticed two things different, both of which are good.
1) It runs thinner than it did last year, and takes longer to dry, which is good, because it spreads better and fills the gaps better. Last year when I applied it, I had to move quick, or it dried too fast and didn't fill the window gaps right. So, I can work with it better this year.
2) The fumes are noticeably better. Last year I about died breathing this stuff. While it still has some fume issues, it doesn't seem as bad to me - maybe about 50% better.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Doc207 I have been using this product for years and have recommended it to everyone
I have used this product during the winter months for years with my 27 year old drafty windows. I use it to seal the gap where the sashes lock together and all around the windows where they loosely contact the slide tracks. I then use heat shrink window film over the entire window and frame on the inside. You won't believe the difference between just using the window film alone verses using the film with the caulking! Before I could see the plastic move with the wind. Now, that draft is gone and I barely see the plastic move evenly on those blustery days. Product does smell during cure, but the smell will dissipate after 24 hours. The product fills gaps well - even large ones- with multiple passes with a minute or so cure in between. (You may have to cut the tip back for a thicker bead) also, If you let it set for around 30 seconds you can work it with your fingers without it being too sticky. Product is very thick and flows better thru tips cut to the larger size and flows better in warmer temps. Sticks to anything but Peels off easily in one piece in the spring. Definitely not cheap but worth it in heating oil savings and draft- less comfort.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Fixitup Easy to use, seals the drafts
It's a good product. I've used for years. It's easy to apply around the windows. Comes off clean and doesn't harm the woodwork. I've even left on some windows longer than a year and it comes off fine. It will not keep for another season, even if unoponed, so only buy what you will use up. I get about 6 standard size windows out of a tube of caulk. Only 4 stars on value because I would not say it is cheap.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Jay1 Old product?
Normally I would give this product five stars. The product came out of the tube like it was all ready half way to dry. Not sure if it's a new formula or maybe my tube was past it's sell by date. The product itself has worked great in years past. I use it to seal all the gaps around my air conditioner. Why HD doesn't put tubes of the product next to the air conditioners is beyond me. I'm sure other people would find the product helpful when installing a window air conditioner. At the end of the season the product just peels off. The stores only carry the product during the winter. Why?

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Berkana18 Old Standby for a/c installation
I have used this product for both winterizing and a/c installation for years. It is fully removable once fully dried(just peel it) and leaves no residue. A bit solventy early but sets quickly and lives odorlessly in your home. This is truly a temporary caulk and will shrivel and fall off in about a year. I use a tube per year and I love it.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Chris Excellent product
This is an excellent product and great invention. This caulk is very easy to apply, is not messy, and dries clear. It is 100 times better than conventional weatherstrip. The only negative is the strong odor which lingered for a few days.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Davistec Works perfectly!
I have used this and removed it. It works as advertised! Will be buying more soon! I wish it was available online as I am not near a Home Depot anymore.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 One of DAP's best products
Seal those leaking windows in the fall and peel it out in the spring. Also works for a temporary adhesive, stick and peel it off later.
