Available in a variety of indoor and outdoor window sizes, 3M Window Insulator Kits keep cold drafts out and warm air in through heat shrink window film and Scotch Window Film Mounting Tape. Quick and easy installation. 3M window kits stay up all season long with Scotch tape technology.
With the 3M indoor patio door insulator kit, you can lower your heating bills during the winter and make your home more energy-efficient. Part of 3M's line of energy-saving products, this kit includes insulation film and a roll of double-sided mounting tape to create an airtight seal. Stretching the film removes wrinkles for a transparent view. This kit enables you to insulate one patio door measuring 6 feet 8 inches by 9 feet.
As shown in these before and after shots, the insulation film attaches neatly to your patio door to keep the heat in and the cold out (click each to enlarge).
Made by 3M, this indoor patio door insulator kit contains insulation film along with Scotch film tape to keep cold drafts out and warm air in. As a result, you can reduce your heating costs during the winter. The film shrinks tight around your door frame for a transparent, wrinkle-free fit and is made to reduce condensation and prevent frost build-up.
Double-Sided Mounting Tape for a Secure Seal
Included with this kit is a 1/2-inch-by-13-4/5-yard roll of 3M film mounting tape to keep your insulation in place all season long. This double-sided tape seals off cracks and crevices, creates an airtight seal, and establishes a strong bond between the surface, the tape, and the insulation film, as recommended in ENERGY STAR's "Seal and Insulate" guidelines. Featuring a convenient, ready-to-peel liner, the tape adheres easily to a variety of surfaces and stays intact upon removal.
Simple, Fast Installation
Installing the door insulation is easy. You simply unfold the film and cut it to the width of the door frame, allowing an extra inch on all sides. Next, you firmly apply the mounting tape around the frame and remove the paper liner. Then you apply the film to the tape, starting at the top of the door, and reposition and stretch the film to remove wrinkles. Finally, you use a blow dryer to remove any remaining wrinkles, then trim any excess film.
Made in the United States, and designed for indoor use only, this insulator kit can be used with aluminum, vinyl-clad, or painted or varnished wood molding, but it should not be applied to veneer paneling or Lauan mahogany molding. The film and tape should be removed from the door at the end of the season. The film measures 7 square yards, or 7 feet by 9.3 feet by 0.75 thousandths of an inch (H x W x D), and weighs 0.24 pounds.

I did put this up by myself. I am short, and had no problems doing it.
I have a 23 year old Andersen sliding door. I would love to replace it, but have to take the cheap route. When looking for the source of drafts, I used a lit match, and the wind coming through the cracks would blow the match out.
The first thing I did was to use some removable rope-type caulk to seal the huge air leaks. I didn't want this plastic to be billowing.
I wiped all the painted trim with a paper towel saturated with rubbing alcohol. This was recommended to prep the surface for the tape.
Because my sliding patio door didn't have any base trim to attach the tape to, I had to get creative. I purchased a piece of white PVC trim (1 1/2" x 1/2") and cut it just a smidge larger than I needed. This held it in place by tension. I have carpeting in the room, so I couldn't attach trim to the floor. This trim was even with the rest of the wood trim around the door. This allowed me to run tape on all four sides.
The door itself is recessed about 1 1/2" from the other trim. Although the 6 ft. trim piece fits with tension, I cut another piece of the trim to back it up and fill the gap. I used sticky back velcro to hold it in place. I am hoping to upload a photo to show how I handled this, as it is hard to describe.
I should mention that I removed the door handle. The inside handle is connected with screws to the exterior handle. I thought the exterior portion of the handle would fall off, but it didn't. I reinserted the screws into the holes to make sure that the other half of the handle stays put.
I put all the tape on the face of the painted wood trim (and the PVC trim piece by the floor) and pushed it on really well, rubbing my thumb over and over it. Then I let it rest for a few minutes to make sure it had set. I removed the protective paper from the top strip of tape only, and attached the plastic. I then did the same at the bottom. Finally one side, then the other. Removing the protective paper as I went along.
I put a lineup of dining chairs all along so that I could just walk sideways and easily reach the top without having to re-position a step stool. Kinda like scaffolding. A short person has to be creative.
I used a hairdryer according to directions. There are videos online to help you understand that part. I worked from the edges to the middle.
I had enough plastic left over to do another narrow window. I also purchased the XL size kit and did a couple windows that were each over 9 ft wide. And I did them by myself. It would be easier with a helper, but I'm just sayin', that if little old me can do it alone, and not get it all twisted up, so can you.
I will say that I wish I hadn't stretched the film taught to begin with, since the heat shrinking did cause that bottom trim piece to pull out of position a bit. I don't think you're supposed to pull it taught when taping. Learning curve.
It sealed up tight as a drum, and crystal clear. It is a great solution for those who can't afford window replacement.
It comes in one long sheet, and needed to be cut to size. Our windows are pretty big, and it worked well. Make sure to hold it up to the window first, though, to make sure you can get two windows covered. I nearly cut it in half the wrong way, which would have been a bummer as it would not have covered even one window fully.
My one complaint is that the 5.16' height is not sufficient for my windows, so I needed use the 5.16' length as the width. This resulted in a lot of extra plastic on the sides that needed to be cut off, and the need to buy two packages for four almost-standard-sized windows.
Luckily I have two half-size bay windows that I was able to use to extra for. Overall I'm so satisfied with the product, I don't mind that I had to buy the two packages.
