- How do I know what size I need?
Measure the size of your doorway and
add half an inch. You will loose half an inch once the Stopper is filled.
- What do I fill my Draft Stopper with?
I like to use Rice. Many people
worry that this will attract mice. I have not had any problems with this but if
you prefer you can use a kitty litter called "Feline Pine' This is Pine in
pellet form. This works well as there is very little dust from it.
Whatever you decide to use, pick
something that has some weight to it. The Stopper has to sit snug up against
the door/window to block any drafts.
Do NOT fill them with sand. This can
stain the fabric.
- How much filler do I use?
You should fill your Draft Stopper to about one inch from
the top. The Stopper should NOT be filled to the point that it is rigid. Your
Stopper should be flexible enough to fall slightly into the gap you are trying
- Why do you ship the Draft Stoppers empty?
I want to keep the shipping costs as
low as I can for my customers. Draft Stoppers filled are very heavy and
expensive to ship.
Also customers have different
preferences as to what they like to use in their Draft Stoppers.
