This is a two person operation highly suggested. I like this product much better because it's heavy duty film. The film does insulate from drafty windows when installed properly. If this is your first time using the product, definitely watch YouTube for instructions. Also use alcohol to finish the cleaning process of your surface to prep for the tape. That does make a difference. This is my second time using the film and I really like it. Saves me money on heating costs and it lasts all season. From time to time, you may have to apply new tape to corners but you have extra on the roll for that. I have two cats who are window watchers and neither has attempted to scratch the film off. So be weary with feline pets.

This a easy fix for drifty windows and it is clear so you will not miss what the neighbors are doing. And saves on the energy bill.
Material is of heavier construction and take just slightly longer to heat-shrink out the wrinkles. Put it on day after purchase. This is the fourth time I have used similar products, but no one as heavy duty as the Duck brand appears to be.
Maximum Strength for Sure
We live in a very old home, and since purchasing our house, we have slowly replaced windows as our budget allows. We have windows in the kitchen that we cover with the Duck window kit each year, although the way the windows are created (in a corner), I have to use extra tape in a way not called for. The double-sided roll included in the Duck Max Strength kit actually sticks to the finished window panels and the bare wall behind! I definitely will use this again next winter. It is so effective, as you can see in my picture, I can keep my plants there! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
Keeps the heat in!
Every winter we struggle to keep the heat in. We turn up the heat even more fighting the battle with these windows having air leaks. Sometimes you can feel a good breeze of cold air coming in! So that means it is costing me much more on my heating bill!! Had enough!! It was time to cover the windows with plastic. It is something my parents did as I was growing up. I remember them using strips of cardboard and a staple gun. But that left little holes in the wood around the window. After a few years, it was really damaging the wood and soon enough it would not hold all winter! Trying to repair the wood would be costly especially if you did not know how to do it and had to hire someone!
The Duck Brand uses double sided tape! What!! No staples!?! I was sold on that fact alone! We measured the window and cut the plastic. A little tip, instead of using a traditional measuring tape, use a clothing one. It is able to bend and move. That makes it easier to measure the plastic since it bends and moves like fabric does. So after cutting the plastic to size. Make sure you leave a little extra over each edge of the window. I did about an inch and a half over each side. I also overlapped the tape on the corners to ensure an air tight fit and coverage. Just make sure you peel back about an inch of the one that is already there before putting the other one on top. (hope that made sense) Get all of your tape placed on but don't peel all of the paper off. Just do one side at a time. Otherwise the plastic will stick to all the tape when you are trying to place. I start at the top, then the sides and bottom last.
Last part is the hair dryer! This is my favorite part too! LOL! There is just something about watching the plastic shrink and the wrinkles all disappear that is so mesmerizing! Don't go too fast or it will not have time for the heat to shrink. Do not go too slow or the heat will melt a hole in the plastic. NEVER touch the hair dryer to the plastic!! It will melt right onto your hair dryer, possibly ruining your hair dryer!! This process takes about 2-3 minutes. After it is all smooth, you're done! Now I can enjoy a warmer home and save more money on my heating bill!! Whoo Hoo!!! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
Way better than I anticipated!
When I recieved the Duck Brand Heavy Duty Window Installation Kit, I thought it would have to be layered multiple times because I'm use to the super thick plastic but I WAS WRONG! It actually works better because this kit has double sided tape that attaches to the frame and plastic. So, It actually has a way better seal than if I were to apply with the other plastic and staple it. The Duck Brand Plastic in this kit also calls for a blow dryer (BONUS). When applying heat to the plastic, it shrink fits the window. So you not only get a good quality brand and kit itself but you also get a tight seal with using this kit. Also, It dod not take long at all to install. The double sided tape allows for a no struggle installation and you can do it all by yourself. I would highly recommend this kit.

Heavy Duty Shrink Fim Window Kit
Go Walmart!! This was very heavy plastic and was a total breeze to apply to your windows. It actually takes more time to measure your window and clean the frames than it does to apply. It shrunk to a tight fit and I am so pleased that I ordered one for a drafty back door!!
Duck Heavy-Duty Shrink Film Window Kit, 3pk
First just let me say I like the site-to-store process. Product is a little thicker than the regular but not by a lot. It is very easy to install. Just follow enclosed directions and you'll have no problems. Second year using this product on a drafty porch. Really helps.
Helps Keep the Cold Out
We used this heavy duty window kit to insulate our windows during the winter time. I have to say that the film itself is fabulous. We lost power one night and only had a small fire going but the insulation kit kept the warmth in and the cold out. I only [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
Duck Brand Heavy-Duty Shrink Film Window Kit
I have a 10-year-old manufactured home with obsolete vinyl slider windows with bad weather stripping (not replaceable) in SW WA State. When the winter rains/winds slam into the windows from the SSW direction the rain drives through the window screens and into the slider channels and runs over onto the interior window sills. My wife would worry so much about it that she would get up a couple of times during the night to mop it up with cloth towels. I came up with the idea of fabricating new screens from frame kits and installing the standard Duck .07 mil film over the screen before installing the splines, heat shrinking the film, and then anchoring the splines and film with 2" wide clear plastic packaging tape. It worked great to eliminate the water problem, but that film only lasts for 2 winters at most, and then I have to re-do them. The problem seems to be that the UV from sunlight makes the film brittle and it almost seems to "shatter" (for lack of a better term) at a certain point. I realize that this is not an application for which the product was intended and it being used outdoors rather than indoors, I am hoping that the heavy-duty (1.5 mil) film will last longer. At any rate, it only takes a couple of hours to replace the old film with new film for 4 large screens (48" x 24") and it is pretty cheap water infiltration insurance for us. If you try this, be aware that the heat-shrinkage of the plastic will bow in the longitudinal centers of the aluminum frames (no longer 90 degree square), and I had to add scrap pieces of frame as horizontal braces to eliminate this.
