    Comments about 3M® Outdoor Window Insulator Kit (2170 W-6):

    The temperature must be 50 degrees F or above for the tape to work as designed. Also having a clean and smooth surface for the tape to adhere to is a must; no gritty surfaces like grout or brick. Alternatively, and cheaper is to use 'rope caulk'. I use both. On my windows, the rope caulk blocks the air leakage and the film creates a void between the window and outside air. Eventually I plan to get new windows, but until then this seems to do a decent job. -- A few of my windows do not have this film because the distance between the molding and the pane is too small, the film ends up resting against the pane making it ineffective. If two people apply the film carefully, it would be possible to make the film taut enough to create a good void even for these difficult windows. Instead I just use the indoor window film on these windows.

      Comments about 3M® Outdoor Window Insulator Kit (2170 W-6):

      In TC's review he criticizes it for not shrinking when a blow dryer is used on it. The package directions clearly state that that does not work on this outdoor product. (It does work on their indoor products.)

      The advertising for this "Outdoor Window Plastic" says you can shrink it with a blow dryer. The truth is, it doesn't and when you put it up that's it.
