No installation instructions came with this product. Between the contractor and myself we figured out the best way to install the insulation. For a product costing $129 I would have thought that the zipper would be a really good one. It is not and I am concerned that it will fail even without a great deal of use. Very disappointing and the reason for my poor rating. As far as the thermal efficiency, it is hard to tell since it's summertime. Will know better once winter sets in.

Pros Easy to Work With, Light Weight Cons No Instructions, poor quality zipper

The ThermoClimb worked as advertised. Fit the stairwell with no adjustments. Can feel the difference in the house temperature immediately. I highly recommend this product.

Very light and easy to install. We have had it only 3 weeks but it is great so far. It covers our opening perfectly and seems to keep the cold out.

Easy to install and seal with caulking. I could immediately feel the difference. The draft coming from my attic stairs is gone.

I think it's helpful to remember when installing this product that there may be gaps around the entry to the attic which could also be leaking cool air (where the building materials come together and join to the attic floor), and which may not be covered by this. I viewed this as an insulation project, not just something to throw in place that's going to do everything. Next, as the seam that 'attaches' to the inside of the attic entry is fabric, you have to consider how to affix that to the wooden frame of the entryway. I used staples - and a lot of them - and in addition went around that seam with a bead of caulk, because air will seep through even with a ton of staples in place. Finally, the corners can be tricky. My entry has metal braces in the corners. I can't put staples into metal, clearly, so it was necessary to fill the voids that formed between the fabric seams and the metal braces with caulk. Even without metal braces, I think it would be difficult to have a perfect fit. Having sealed the gaps between the wood joists, filled the corner gaps where the braces are, and run a bead of caulk where the fabric meets wood, I think I've done a good job sealing the attic and would recommend this product. By itself, for 100 bucks, I think it's pretty ok, but go the extra step of sealing everything tight.

What straps? It is a thin 'box like' cover. Unless you have a 'box like' frame surrounding your pull down opening, it acts more like a blanket. There is no way of knowing whether or not it stays in lace when the steps are put up. Can't recommend OR can't not recommend this product.

I bought the Attic Stair Cover as the attic door in our home is located near the register return. Our house is an older home and the attic door is not insulated. The day installed this attic stair cover I could tell an immediate difference. It has been one of the best things I've done for home improvement. I should have done this long before now.

It seems sturdy and is perfectly sized for a 22 x 48 inch folding ladder attic opening. It would be even better if it were designed with its own frame to hold it in place. I had to make a frame out of wood. Insulating the attic is definitely worth it

easy to install, effective, not that expensive (plus I'm sure it'll pay for itself within a year or three). adds comfort to top floor (especially the bedroom where the attic stairs are). i haven't gone in/out that much so i can't speak to the longevity of the bag or it's zipper, but it seems pretty decent in quality.

This is an easy install but not a perfect seal to opening above the attic stairs. Also for me it was self explanatory but for others a little drawing with some directions might help. There were no fasteners in the package so be sure to pick up a box or package of 3/4"-1-1/4" #8 pan head screws to fasten to framing members. IT has velcro in the 4 corners but that doesn't seal them only helps to keep it all square and give you some adjustments. I used some aluminum tape to seal my corners and the four long fastening points to make the seal.
