Better with the screw on ones.

£1 in Poundland!

I dont rate the self adhesive ones, they simply dont last. The screw on ones are little bit expensive but damn hard to cut to shape

Will pop into Poundland as they seem to be an easier solution

How can you be so sure ? X)

I didn't think anyone used these any more. I remember my parents having them when I was a kid before they had full double glazing etc. If you have carpets they make a huge semi circle on the carpet where the door opens, plus they are an eye sore on the doors.

If you have draughts coming from under your door, why not get some oddments of nice material and make sausage draught excluders? Will do the same job, save your carpet and look a lot better.

Because you have to push them into place manually, and if the door opens towards them and you're on the other side, you can't open the door?

Just fill them with something light weight

How do you get the sausage draught excluder to sit tightly up against the door when you're the last one to exit the house? Surely you can only do this from the inside? You have to put the sausage in place manually to achieve the best result so sausage is only a benefit when you're indoors.

So I'm thinking it's useful to combine both. This draught excluder will help keep the draughts out when you're out thus helping to keep the house warm for when you get home and the sausage will just help more when you're in. Carpet semi-circle's not a problem for us as we have a tiled floor.

to keep sausage draught excluder tight against the door. get two pieces of thin elastic, slide under door one on each end,lay sausage on top of elastic and mark sausage so you can sew elastic piece on to each mark.then thread elastic under door. have two plastic topped drawing pins ready and press in to door, (opposite side ) in line with elastic. i have them about 1 or 2 ins. from bottom of door. you dont want them to be too noticeable. i put pins in joint line so no holes in door. then pull elastic tight and wrap around drawing pin and try to secure it with a knot.
