I used this product to seal off a sliding door. The installation was simple enough but the double-stick tape they provide to attach the plastic sheeting to the frame of the door was entirely inadequate. After a very brief period, I found myself having to re-attach the plastic to the frame by any other means I could think of. Nothing really worked too well. Scotch double stick tape worked better than the stuff the kit came with but it wasn't great either. Winter breezes came through the sheeting no matter what I did, though the presence of the partially sealed film might have lessened the problem. I will say, however, that the kit I used on the double-hung windows in the house worked exceptionally well. The film on those windows has stayed in place for years, sealing the window tightly and invisibly. I think you'll be happy with the window kit, not the big sliding door kit.

I ordered this to cover most of my drafty windows, I don't
mind fresh air but I do mind the smoke from chimneys
that although are not close by, it seems to stick around my
apartment, being asthmatic you can guess my first winter
in this apartment is no fun. It must be the geography of the town and the fact that we don't get a lot of wind around here. I do recommend that you allow some "give" on windows that get full sunlight through most of the day (that we do get a lot) because it will shrink the plastic and start to loose it's grip on the glue, luckily for me I had left over 2 inches on the sides and had glue tape left over.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by todd this product was huge during the brutal winter last year.
I remember the xmas blizzard2010, in NYC very vividly. snowed in...freezing and several drafts coming into my apt. Luckily, i purchased multiple plastic sheets.
after a couple of hours I had 4 (6ftx8ft)windows and my balcony doors(6ftx10ft.) sealed for the winter. Amazing difference right away. sealed perfectly- and with ease! the plastic is super clear- that once applied- is hard to notice.
easily cut 20% off my national grid/gas bill!
* anyhow,I just purchased some more for this winter. and once again - put it up in a snap!
im ready for the cold-)

Rated 1 out of 5Â by Heather I would not recommend this product
The plastic doesn't stick to the tape. I've used other similar products that worked MUCH better. I will not purchase this again.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by tupapi I recommend it
This product was easy to instal. dont know how it holds up with time but I had it for 3 weeks and notice both rooms with at least a ten degree difference. That's judging it by how the Room felt before and after. I installed it on a pair of 40 year old single pane aliminum patio sliding doors. the double sided tape worked fine with me, well so far. I just took my time making shore the surface was clean.then I hit it with a blow dryer and push down on it so it adheres better. So easy even a cave man can do it.
