Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by hobbs77 Installation went smooth for me. Noticeable difference already.
This product has received some unavoidable reviews and I'm a bit surprised. I followed the instructions and have had a great outcome so far. I knew the five windows that I covered were allowing cold air to enter and after applying the plastic shrink wrap over them I could instantly feel the difference. The tape holds well and you can see the plastic shrink/tighten as you pass over it with the hair dryer. In a few spots I doubled the amount of tape used to give a 1" width just to give additional adhesion for holding the plastic in place. I'd recommend this product.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by CreativeMom Use some patience and take your time.
Bought this product to cut the draft that was coming in from the Large Window in the Living Room. We didn't really have an issue of the tape sticking to the wall part of the Window frame... which is amazing since the Landlord uses that cheap chalky easy to wipe off with a damp cloth paint. However be sure to wait the 15 min before applying the plastic.
The plastic was cumbersome, mainly because of dealing with a thin large piece ( no fault of the product ) However do not pull to hard because it will tear easily.
I was impressed afterwards when we used the blow dryer. The plastic film came out Clean and Clear and easy to see through.
Word of warning.. be sure to take your time and don't do this in a mad rush to get done before the 2yr old arrives back home from the grandparents.

I have used other products like this before with great success. This product was beyond horrible. All the time it takes from thoroughly cleaning the window and trim, cutting the tape and film and the application process just to have the tape not stick. If I could return this product I would. Waste of money

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by TheRedHare Does a good job keeping heat in, cold out!
Never used a product like this before and left if up to my friend (who rents) to see if it worked before I purchased. Bottom line: Works like a charm!
Easy to install (hint: When you're applying the plastic, after letting the adhesive strip set for about 15 minutes, don't remove all the paper backing off the sealant at once. Do a bit at a time as you apply the plastic film.) And despite not using a hair dryer to tighten the plastic, it it keeping the cold drafts out!
And, for the rooms that have very old windows, I may leave it up all year long - or as long as it's effective.
Yes, I'll buy this again!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Marcie Best Purchase ever!
This product makes the holidays in New York City that much warmer!
Living in a Brooklyn loft in 20 degree weather with large drafty windows, this product kept the apartment noticeably warmer.
We were so impressed we actually measured the temperature with a black & decker thermal thermometer & there was a +15 degree difference on both sides!!!!! I am so happy to have purchased this product. I will no longer have to increase the heat, not to mention the heating bill. You can even see through it perfectly, it's completely clear!!!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by sb409 it works
I was surprised this product worked as well as it did, and it is almost invisible. The double stick tape sticks well to painted and finished window trim as long as it is clean and dry. If the trim is unfinished, it does not stick for very long. Several windows in our house have been stripped to the bare wood but not finished, and the tape only stuck for a few hours before it came off. A heat gun on low setting works much faster than a hair dryer, just keep it in constant motion and don't hold it too close to the film or it will burn holes in the film. The shrink wrap worked so well on old double hung windows, that I also installed it over double-paned vinyl windows and noticed a huge difference. And the extra-large 2-pack is the best value.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Red25 Poor quality
I have used this type of product for several years. This is the first year using this brand, and the last. I found it much more difficult to get a smooth surface than other brands I have used. The finished product had visible flaws that did not disappear with heating.
I had one window that was too large for the Frost King sheets I had purchased so I used a 3-M sheet leftover from last year. The difference in the optical clarity between the two products was striking. There is no doubt in my mind that next year I will go back to the 3-M product.
