Draft Stopper is a draft stopping tool. Said tool affixes to all types of doors. For metal doors it sticks with a magnet, but for wooden doors there are hooks that keep it in place. In any case, the water repellent cover keeps out moisture, prevents cold air from sneaking in under the door, and even stops things like smoke, dirt, and bugs from sneaking in under the door. When you are done with it, you can hang it up.
Total Cost Breakdown
- All Doors
Fits around any door or window. While it is primarily used for doors, you can attach it to the bottom of a big window, a sliding glass door, and more to try and stop the cold.
- Easy Install
The installation is an easy process, one that takes no tools and no screws. .
- Use All Year Round
The unit can be used all year round. In the winter, you can rely on it to keep out a draft but in the summer, it keeps cool air inside. When your neighbors have a BBQ, you can block the smoke. If someone ran over a skunk, you can stop it from entering your house.
- Storage Loop
There is a nice loop at the end of it so you can store the unit easily when not in use.
While its main purpose is to keep out draft, the Draft Defender actually keeps out a lot more. It prevents dust, noise, smoke, fumes, dirt, bugs, and inclement weather from sliding in under your door.
One of the biggest forms of electrical waste in homes is that which is spent trying to heat homes that are drafty. Even well insulated homes have windows and doors which allow air to enter. When this happens, the heating bills go up to try and constantly maintain warm, livable temperatures inside the house while the cold drafts come in. With this unit, the same as any other draft stopping device, you can enjoy draft prevention, so that you use less heating energy in your home. This keeps energy costs down whenever it gets cold outside the home.
How to Use (Step by Step)
First, slide on the grip slips so that the unit can be held in place.
Then stick the Draft Defender on and shut your door.
How it's Different from Competitors
While the idea behind stopping a draft is not new, and the bulk of this product is the same as almost all other draft protection methods, the key difference lies in the clips. With the special door clips, the Draft Defender is affixed to bottom of the door. This means you can still open and close your door without having to move it out of the way or back in place after. It doesn't, then, drag dirt or any other debris back and forth across the floor either. By sticking to the door, it is also designed not to snag on carpets, bunch up your door mat, or otherwise get stuck and create a mess.
What's more, it has a weatherproof sleeve on it. Their sleeve covers the unit so that if it is wet outside, raining, or moist, none of that penetrates. As it limits water penetration, it keeps the unit dry and functioning properly, without eventually making a big, sloppy mess. Unlike other designs, it also contains a magnet inside so that it can grip against metal doors.
- Other Sleeves
Alternative sleeves on the market are the same with regard to their size and shape. Some are filled with beans or rice, while others are full of Styrofoam balls. Popular cloth designs have the Styrofoam balls inside.
In almost all of these alternative cases, the unit is just placed at the foot of the door, but when you open or close the door, it moves. Heavier options are designed to do this as little as possible, but it still happens.
Without purchasing a full pillow or guard, some people bunch up towels and use them in the same way. This does not stop as much of the draft, but it does stop some of it.
