Best to apply before winter hits. Haven't had good success with the adhesive holding if you apply after it gets below freezing. It will form a better bond if you do it when it is warm. Also make sure the surface it cleaned well before you try to apply it.

I need additional tape

Will this help reduce offensive smells from coming in too? The drafty door also brings in funky smells sometimes.

Depends on how good your seal is!

will it work on metal threshold and do you need the hairdryer.

No hair dryer is required. This product is installed by first roughly fitting the plastic film over the patio door frame (the trim) via the two-sided tape, then tightly fitting the film by lifting and re-adhering a section at a time to achieve a tight, nearly invisible installation. Achieving a good seal at the threshold can be tricky. This product seals best if the film perimeter adheres to a surface which is 90 degrees from the broad surface of the patio door. For instance, if a sheet of 3/4 inch plywood represents your patio door, excellent results can be achieved by applying the two-sided tape to the thin edges of the plywood and stretching the film over the entire sheet. Good results also can be obtained by applying the two-sided tape to the flat surface of the plywood and then installing the film. However, other installation configurations are not likely to provide satisfactory results. Example: if a 9 x 13 cake pan represents the opening you are attempting to seal, and you apply the two-sided tape to the vertical surfaces of the inside of the pan, the film will pull off fairly easily in windy conditions. Because the trim at my threshold extends about an inch beyond the the other trim pieces, I solved my threshold problem by constructing a wood filler of two heavy 2x4's to lie on the threshold. I screwed them together with exterior screws, cut them to fit snugly within the opening, then applied two coats of a primer made for sealing wood that would receive adhesives. When completed, the front edge of this filler piece was flush with the other door trim pieces. I then applied the two-sided tape to the front of this device and to the thin edges of the other door trim pieces and installed the film. I discovered that tightly stretched film tended to pull the wood filler piece out of position, but I slightly relaxed the film to remedy this situation.

Can this be used on a metal frame and can the door be opened after adhering to the frame

Asked by GG October 6, 2019

Can be used on metal frame. Adhesion depends on seal tape you use. If opening and closing of door scrapes the seal, it probably will eventually peel. Make sure there is no trapped air.

so if 8 windows are 41.5" wide, i'd want these kits, and cut halves? Or too tricky--buy 8 of 60"-odd wide, trim each?

Cut to desire size. I do the same with all the various kits

I ordered a different brand that stays stuck when the temperature drops drastically

It says 84inx112in in the description which is 7ft x9ft4in, but on the box after a close up it says 6’8”x9’ thats 80in by108in. Which one is it??

Asked by james November 14, 2018

It would be best if you contact 3M directly. I trimmed the excess film after covering my patio door again this year and have no way of knowing the original dimensions.

Will this product work indoor as well? Will it shrink like the indoor version, if I blew it with a blow dryer?

Asked by KidAce January 23, 2019

Answers

This product is designed for exterior use. It stretches tightly to a clear, nearly invisible appearance. It is not a shrinkable plastic. // Indoor shrinkable products are readily available online.

This is the only one that the tape sticks to any material and the window film is crystal clear. Also they cut the film ion exact rectangles so you have even edges when you stick it to the tape. The only one I will buy. I tried the others and won't do that again. This is the fifth year we have used it.

This product was so easy to work with. After cleaning the surface as recommended, we applied the tape and were able to attach and detach the plastic multiple times to get it to the point where it was taut enough. We chose to work on a day that was rather gusty but because the tape could hold the plastic for us while we were working on another area, it didn't pose the problems that you might imagine. So far, so good.

Double sided tape is too skinny and the adhesive is VERY poor. Tape does not adhere well even after proper preparation of surface area. Not enough tape provided to allow for mistakes or a redo. Definitely a two-man job. The plastic is fine (long enough and heavy enough). The kit is not worth your time and money! I would rate it less than a 1 but there is not option for that.
