Draft Busters are insulating strips that will seal any drafty window, keeping out the cold. The strips come in sets of four—enough to seal a draft coming through each of four standard-sized windows ( with sides of four feet or less ). You'll be able to use these strips again and again for years without worrying about a loss of effectiveness. When you need to open a sealed window, you can simply remove the appropriate strip for the time being and put it back on when you're ready to close the window again. All Draft Buster strips are clear and black, so they won't clash with the color of your trim or your walls.
When you use Draft Buster strips, you'll be able to keep your home warm without turning up your heat to an excessively high level, or spending tons of time sealing drafts. Unlike some methods of draft sealing, such as treating clear plastic with heat to seal a window, installing your Draft Buster strips will not be incredibly time-consuming. In fact, you're likely to find this quite a quick process. Aside from saving you precious minutes that you can use to do other things, using these strips will likely mean that you won't need to replace your drafty windows as often as you would otherwise.

How It Works
Draft Buster strips are made with a micro suction design that enables them to stick tightly to your windows and stay put, creating an airtight seal over every draft that you use them to cover.
How to Use (Step by Step)
Before applying a strip, measure how long the side of the window you wish to apply it to is.
- Cut (optional)
If the side you wish to use a strip on is shorter than the standard length that the strips come in, you'll need to cut a strip to fit it. You can do this with any regular pair of scissors.
Press your strip against the edge of the window on the appropriate side, trying your best to smooth out any gaps or puckers.
- Suitable for Any Window
Draft Busters can be added to any window. If you have drafty windows that are longer than four feet on the side( s ) that you need to seal, you can just install two strips beside each other on those sides.
These reusable strips will retain their effectiveness throughout multiple uses, even after a number of years. In order to use a certain window, you can even remove a strip and put it back on without affecting the quality of its seal.
- Leave no Sticky Residue
You don't need to use any sticky adhesive in order to attach your Draft Buster strips to your windows, and they'll leave no sticky residue behind at all. That means you won't have to waste time scraping gunk off the edges of the windows once it's warm out and you no longer need to cover drafts.
- Quick Process
Attaching a Draft Buster strip will only take seconds, and once you take time for measuring and cutting into account, the entire process of installation will only take minutes.
Since you are able to cut Draft Buster strips, you can customize them to fit windows of a variety of sizes.
- Come in Sets of Four
You won't need to buy each Draft Buster strip separately, as each set contains four strips, which is, logically, enough to seal four drafts.
These strips aren't difficult to bend, and their flexibility will help you fit them perfectly to your windows during the installation process.
- Black and Clear
Each Draft Buster strip is clear and transparent with two solid black stripes running through it. This is a very neutral design that will look good on virtually any window, regardless of its color.
- Not Ideal for Rounded Windows
While you can use Draft Buster strips on rounded windows, they aren't ideal for those, as they are straight and linear instead of being curved. Bending them to fit them around a circular or heart-shaped window would be an arduous task.
- Plastic Wrap
You can seal a draft by covering a window with plastic wrap and then treating it with heat from a blow dryer, but this can be a pain. First of all, you'll have to wrestle with a roll of plastic wrap, and then you won't be able to open your window during the time period that the plastic is on it. Furthermore, the process of installing and heating plastic wrap will likely take much longer than installing Draft Busters.
- Replacement Windows
You could get a new window every time a current one developed a draft, but then you'd have to make frequent trips to a store to purchase them, and spend the required time installing them.
