  • Fantabulous product

  • Recommended Product

I installed this product myself and it works great. I was initially concerned because it's a little bit bigger than my attic opening, but I was able to pinch the corners and screw it into the stairway opening frame to remove and opening. The thickness and quality of the fabric is very good. There is significant insulation material between the fabric shell. It took me about 20 minutes to install it once I had the right screws and washers. The zippers are a bit thin, but for the price, it's a great value. It seems to work pretty well though. No problems so far. Ok, so does it work? I'm amazed that it makes that much difference. I had a drafty hall that simply is not drafty any more. I didn't realize it was that bad before. I'm really interested to see what happens this summer. I expect it will also keep the cooler air in as well since there can be a pressure difference between my attic and house. (I did research that cold air can escape out the stairway as well since hot attic air is lower pressure, and colder air is higher pressure and can go right out the stairway attic door. Go figure!) I guess it's hard to figure out how long I'll get my money back in actual utility savings, but I know that I'm more comfortable in the house.

Pros Easy to Use, Performs Well, Easy to Install, Seals Well, Good Shape, Great Value, High Quality, Economical Cons had to adjust size but was pretty simple

  • It works very well

Bought it on a Wednesday received it the following Monday. My husband installed it himself in 30 min. I can't believe how much difference it has made. We have an old house the attic stair doesn't close tightly leaves about a 1/4 inch gap. If you put your hand by it you can feel the circulation of the air. The cover not only sealed off the gap, since it cut off the outtake end if the circulation, it stopped the cold air from being sucked in from our drafty front door when the heat is on. I would imagine it will do the same in summer. Our hall is much warmer now. Love it. The quality is very good. Thick and heavy duty. Haven't had the zipper problem like the other customer yet.

To install this cover, I built a simple wood curb projecting upward from the stairway frame about eight inches into the attic opening. This curb was sized to provide the necessary clearance above the folded stairway mechanism and something tangible to support the cover and attach it to. It was attached to the stairway frame with mending plates and screws. The installation was easy to work out and the thermal effectiveness of the cover is very good. The temperature differential between the attic space and space inside the closed cover runs around twenty to twenty five degrees.

  • Good product to seal a pull down stairs
  • March 25, 2015
  • Verified Purchase & Recommended Product

This is a good choice if you have an old pull down stairs that needs a rim constructed around it because of the existing height of the metal arms projecting into the attic when closed. Do make sure you have your measurements, in mind, while building the rim.

Easy to install, took 30 minutes. Once in, I attempted to unzip, the zipper end broke, now I have to use needle nose pliers to unzip.

  • Easy Installation
  • June 24, 2016
  • Recommended Product

Very easy to install with two people, one holding and the other doing the staples. Took my son and I longer to clean-up the fiberglass insulation on the attic pull-down stairs than to install. I measured for the exact opening size and the fit was perfect. Good quality, good value. I recommend this product.

After reading all of the reviews, this was an 'easy' choice to make. I could tell how well this was working as it was being installed, I could feel my own body heat reflected back of the inside as I was supporting the attic cover whilst it was being stapled down to the attic ladder framework. i thought it might need some additional sealing at the corners but absolutely not needed, it is Winter here now and I cannot detect any drafts or 'cold spots' when I checked in sub-zero temps. - I am VERY glad I made this purchase before I had the attic ladder installed, and it looks like it will last a lifetime!

I love this product. One thing they don't tell you is that you gonna need double sided tape or upholstery nails to attach the "tent". Other than that I think this product is going to save me some money on electic bill.

  • Great Attic Door Cover
  • September 14, 2016
  • Verified Purchase & Recommended Product

This works great to seal our attic door. It was a bit tricky to install since the door opening wasn't uniform. So, the sides of the frame had tiny gaps that made it tough to fit properly. I just had to do my best to fit it with staples and weatherstrip. Caulk is likely better but I won't bother until it is much cooler. In the end this removed the stench of attic air and likely decreased the cooling costs a bit which is a plus.

Pros Easy to Install, Good Size & Weight, Great Value, Seals Well

You can still see light through the closed zipper, so it is not a true air barrier; however, it did fit well and helps insulate the pull down stairs as promised. If I had it to do over again, I would have opted for a box style insulator with a gasket on the bottom to truly prevent air leakage into the attic and a higher overall R-value for the insulation. For now, i'm going to increase the R-value by pulling batt R-30 over top as I'm closing it.
