Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by bewalker Exactly what I wanted.
This product does just what I wanted. It darkened the windows enough to help keep the house a little cooler with out completely blocking the view. From the outside the glass looks just like on the picture. Because of the static, lint seems to jump onto the film, especially in carpeted rooms. There also seem to be some faint striations on the the film from manufacturing. However, neither was a big deal. The baby shampoo mixture works just as well as the packaged spray and you have to keep the glass and the film dripping wet to be able slide it around or you can peel it off and redo it until you get it right. I would recommend cutting this film to size (slightly smaller than the glass) because it seems to snag and stretch and does not trim well with a razor, even a brand new one. Overall, I love it.

Living in Texas the sun was beating in and causing a high electric bill but since putting this on our windows it cut the heat down tremendously and our bill. Only wish I thought of it sooner

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Wes Exactly what we needed for privacy
Installation was quick and easy, and it has done exactly what my wife and I had hope for. It provides a view outside while allowing privacy to us with the door open. Because of the color of our door while looking at it from the street, it is difficult to see or know if the door is open or closed. It does however, make the outside view a bit darker, although that seems to be a plus because we can feel a noticeable difference as it filters the sunshine UV rays.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by DMLR Works very well - easy
I used this on the side lights of our front door. In the evening, the sun blazes through and shines directly in your eyes if you are sitting in the family room. In the summer, the sun really heats up the room. These are single pain glass panels. Measuring and cutting perfectly is very difficult and very important. Since this is the static cling type of material, it is very thick and even with a sharp utility knife, you can not easily cut off overage once this is on the window. It stretches when you try to cut it on the window and hence the final cut is not a clean straight line. It is best to cut with the scissors prior to putting it up. However, since this is super dark, if you are not able to get the exact measurement/cut, it is terribly obvious where the gaps are from inside looking out. From the outside, these look totally black and are amazing for privacy. Removing and reapplying the pieces is very simple. Since these were only side lights, I was able to do this project alone. This reduces the amount of incoming light tremendously and it reduced the heat noticeably as well.

I bought this because the sun shines very bright in our new home. Particularly our bedrooms. We don't have screens on our windows. This item was very simple to apply. I did it by myself! I watched a short video on youtube. I did buy the kit since it came with a squeege and blade. I wasnt sure if I had those items or not. This stuff is God send!!! Im very happt eith this purchase!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DocTom Outstanding and easy to apply
I purchased the Glare Control in Smoke tint #10389340 at the North Spokane Home Depot to cut out the 4 a.m. early sunrise here in Spokane. I have utilized the Gila Privacy products in the past with difficulty in the application process. This new product has really changed all the application challenges for sure. EASY TO APPLY and works VERY well in cutting out the sun glare without interfering with our garden views.
