1. Flimsy: I bought the draft guard as a temporary fix and to experiment with cutting down the heating bill. I had low expectations regarding the durability of this product based on other reviews I read, but the draft guard was still worse than expected. The draft guard comes in 7 pieces: 1 cloth casing,4 foam pieces, 2 "connectors" for the foam pieces. The cloth case has two pockets - one to hold the two pieces of foam that sit on each side of the door. The foam that goes into the pockets is actually two pieces that connect with a plastic tube. The pieces become disjointed easily when you open and close the door because the extra fabric of the case bunches up. It is hard to explain, but you end up with a floppy foam rod on each end of the door.
2. Messy: The draft guard does not sit tight against the door as it looks in the picture. I have standard doors and there is half an inch gap between the door and the foam rod on either side of the door. It looks like I shoved some leftover fabric against the bottom of the door.
3. Unfit for advertised purpose: Another consequence of the extra fabric is that it starts bunching up and often starts to roll under the door when you are opening the door! This is not only annoying, but it has actually jammed the door a few times to the point that I could not open the door without reaching around to yank the guard out from underneath the door.
Honestly I would only recommend this product for an indoor door that you rarely use. For example, the room to a door that you keep shut off from the rest of the house when you are trying to cut down your heating bill.
I bought these in the fall of '09 and they made it through the winter just fine. You do have to give them a little kick to push them back under the door before your shut it, because they will slide out, but I'm sure the could be fixed with some double-sided tape or something. I really don't mind it, though, it's part of my "door closing routine" now.
I actually plan to leave these in during the summer. I'm sure they'll keep just as much hot air out/cool air in as they did the opposite in winter.
About the notes about making them yourself...yes, you could, but for less than 20 bucks, is it really worth the trip to get the materials, time and effort? No way, they're plenty sturdy right out of the box, and it takes 2 min to put them in.
I also really like the free over-the-door hook that came with.
I bought 3 of these and put them on doors without thresholds. To make them fit the doors snugly, I simply stuffed plastic grocery bags inside the fabric alongside the foam tube. It took quite a while, but was well worth the end result. I stuffed one bag at a time using the blunt end of a pencil, working the folded bag all the way to the end, the shaking the pencil out and starting with the next bag until it was stuffed tight from end to end. I made sure the keep the bags on the same side of the foam so that it still looked somewhat uniform (albeit lumpy). I only had to do this on one side of each of the draft stoppers.
I'm very satisfied with the product now that they fit the doors snugly. I only gave it 3 stars since it had to be modified.
They were also correct in that this WON'T work on any kind of a door with a threshold. It just won't.
I bought the set of two but I thought I needed three - I'm glad I didn't order all I thought I needed so I'd have a chance to test them out. Only the doors I needed them for is internal and has no threshold, so I can only use one. The other draft guard that came with it, I am about to donate to my local charity thrift shop - someone will put it to good use.
The over the door hook that it comes with is pretty good quality, and while THAT was the bit I was expecting to give away to charity, it is actually really handy.
All in all, this is pretty good value. Even if I can only use one of the draft guards.
We ended up using the one that was homemade stuffed into the door when shutting it and no air comes in at all, unlike this piece of cr*p.
