First off, if you haven't used any kind of v-strip before - it folds in half, into a V. There's self-stick stuff on one outer side of the V. You look at where a door or window is going to close, and stick it on such that when the door closes it will press against the pointy side, offering little resistance and pushing the V flat. When the door opens the material will spring out, at most into more of an L shape. Therefore the maximum width it can seal is half the width of the tape (and realistically a bit less). So if you see a 7/8 wide tape that seals 3/8 like this one, well, that's why.
The nice thing is that there's a fair amount of flex to it, and if you have an uneven gap it will do a pretty good job of filling it, since the door will push down as needed. It's quite thin, so if it starts binding you probably didn't need any weatherstripping anyway. It's much less frustrating than various foam or rubber solutions where you pretty much have to exactly match the width (although those probably provide more insulation if you can get them to work). I have a door that's badly wider at the bottom than the top so this is pretty much the only kind of product that's going to work.
The downside is that the first time you use it, you kind of have to puzzle out where to stick it pointing in what direction and the directions aren't that good. But if you just fold it so the stickem is on the outside and walk over to a door and hold it up and orient it so that the stickem sticks to something and the pointy side points towards the door you'll see how it has to go.Read more ›
Lastly, I also use this on old drawers, where wooden drawer-sides slide along wooden rails in the carcass. I got a quart can of "sanding sealer" de-waxed shellac. I paint the bottom of the drawer sides and top of the rails with it, to give this V-Flex a good place to grip. Then apply it flat--don't make it into a V--on both surfaces. It makes them GLIDE. Some are so worn down that the drawer is "low" relative to the hole in the face of the carcass. In this case, I double the layers of V-Flex right at the point where the drawer is almost closed, with the short piece under the full length piece. This allows the drawer to "ride up" a titch and make a better seal/close.
The glue on this stuff is quite intense. My most recent batch that I ordered here on Amazon sticks like crazy. The other stuff that I bought at a hardware store here in town must have been a bit older, as it wasn't quite as sticky.
But so far, so good! I recommend it all the time to anyone complaining of drafty windows and doors.
I applied the tape after cleaning the jamb area with a rag lightly dampened with alcohol. You want the surface clean. Since my doors already have the foam compression weatherstrip on the jamb, I added this just in front of that for added performance. Now I see no daylight between door and jamb. There is no cold or warm air coming into the home so drafts have been eliminated. I am very pleased with the product.

After adhering it to the door frame, this tape was wavy. I could still see light through the gaps, and I still felt a draft. Waste of time, waste of money.Published 6 months ago by Miss Rose
