Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by SteveW No more peeping toms into the bathroom!
My wife asked me to put up something on the bathroom windows to prevent someone from looking into the bathroom when she gets out of the shower. Previously, we had paper blinds which served this purpose, but also were very annoying to collapse down to allow the bathroom windows to be opened for fresh air. Also the paper blinds would occasionally get torn or discolored from the sunlight and moisture in the air.
Installing this frosted film on the windows was a fairly straightforward process involving thoroughly cleanining the windows before application, cutting the film to slightly larger than the window size, spray on the applicator solution, peel film backer away and apply film to window. Then trim film to window using the cutting tool in the kit (sold separately) and squeegee film to ensure no bubbles and consistent contact with window.
The film can be removed and reapplied within 24 hours if needed, but I did not have to do this on either of my bathroom windows.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Emily Looks good, not that hard to install
Definitely mandatory: Buy the Complete Window Film Application Kit. This wasn't too terribly hard to install, and I had two kittens jumping all over everything trying to help, so pretty much anybody can do it. Took me 2 hrs for 4 window panes. Be VERY careful when you remove the backing from the film. The film itself is VERY sticky, and I ruined a panel when it got stuck to itself - That was a PAIN. The video is very helpful, and I was able to splice together two pieces to cover the 4th window pane. Patch job is ok, can't really tell it's a patch unless you look up close. This film lets light through but offers COMPLETE privacy. Overall pretty happy with this and would recommend.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by tw16 Worked and looks great
I just bought this product and the application kit for some entrance doors at work. It was definitely worth having a second person help me with this. One tip I would suggest for success it to not only spray the whole window before hand but also spray the back off the frosting once you have pulled the backing off!

The adhesive is too sticky and makes placement of film virtualy impossible to have a smooth surface. I used another product that was a bit thicker and less sticky with perfect results.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by GeorgiaBets Very nice but with one problem
The results are very nice, but the product states that the "EZMount adhesive allows you to peel the film away from the glass, fix the problem, and re-apply for up to 24 hours." No way! Within minutes, if you peel away to adjust it (after squeegeeing) it does come off but leaves thick layer of adhesive that does not come off. I am going to have to make another trip to Home Depot for the special remover, which I hope they have.
The easy solution is to make sure the film is placed exactly where you want it before squeegeeing. The photo shows the daytime view with just the left window done so far.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Ale Great product
Like any product you have to read the instructions. I did this with my husband. We bought one box of film along with gila solution only, not the kit since we already had a squeege... If you don't have one I would highly recommend it. It saves you time and the process runs much smoother. Windows have to be clean otherwise you will regret it when your putting on the film. Loved the product and the outcome.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Amy Worst Product Ever- Do not buy! Waste of money
I have used window film before with absolutely minimal difficulty. I went to my local Home Depot and they are now carrying this product. DO NOT BUY IT! It is absolutely the worst product ever invented. You need to have 8 arms to even unroll and peel the backing (which by the way took forever to get the edge to come up to get it started). By the time a person gets the backing started, the application spray on the window is drying. You have to quickly place the paper and it is so sticky, it grabs on and you have a terrible time moving it into place. It then shows every bubble, crease etc. When you do try to move it, it rips off and leaves a big gummy residue on the window that you cannot cover with the film. So, if you do still have the motivation and patience to continue, you must first clean and scrape all the incredibly sticky gooey junk off your window and start all over.
HORRIBLE HORRIBLE HORRIBLE
