Also in pink

Paid £20 last week from amazon. Worth every penny.

I've got big sash windows, anyone know what to do for them please?

reviews say it doesn't even stick properly. no use then

These are sooooo fiddly. Loads of suction cups, which of course is great for ensuring it is stuck well to the window so no light gets in, but just try getting them all to stick at the same time! I invariably end up with a corner falling down (or more) . They DO block out the light, but trying to wrestle this on to the window while doing all the other bed-time routine bits and bobs is a major chore.

Not all reviews state this, far more say it does stick.

Haha gro anywhere blackout blinds, free with your hydroponics?

Not easy to stick on, must ensure your windows surface are clean! Might need to add some double-sided tape too...

Oooh much prefer the blue and pink versions!

Tried them with limited success.

Found these far better, though will have the issue of removal of Velcro tape once no longer using them.

Worth every penny! Surely any extra sleep with little ones is priceless?!

Are these for people scared of a drill? Do the job properly, buy a proper roller blackout blind.

Portablility is also a major selling point.

I think the main difference is that these are portable, also the roller blinds tend to leave at least a small gap around the edges for light to get through.

I love these we take them on holiday. Heat added and item ordered. thanks, been looking for a second one.

Not scared of a drill no. These are sold as a portable product that means I can take it with me when I go away.

No for people that take their kids away and want them to be able to sleep properly when they do go away.....

these are an absolute godsend, especially if you work nights, they make the room completely black, I find making the suckers a bit wet helps them stick, yes its a bit of a FAFF but for a completely dark room during the day I'm happy

Trolling? I can't tell ...

I've had limited success with both v1 and v2 of these. v2 has an elastic so you can gather it which v1 doesn't have. Not all the suction cups stick all at the same time. It's more effective (if possible) to drape a couple of these over a curtain rail. Or when you do stick it up don't do the bottom ones and fold it up, there's then less weight on the rest of the suction cups.

Can anyone tell me whether these would be suitable for a Velux window please?

Doesn't stop light from leaking out round each of the sides, suckers are rubbish too.

I paid £20 for the black one and worth every penny so this deal is HOT from me.
I got it for when we went on holiday but used it in our house to whilst the nursery was being finished.

Life pro tip. A short term fix is tin foil. Tin foil is also useful if you've triggered the sensors of a house alarm and you don't know the code. Wrap the sensors and the alarm will stop sounding

Heat as good price. Not for me though, just pay the money for a fitted black out roller blind, worth the money IMO.

Not trolling at all, just seeing all the complaints in here about suction cups not working.

Portability, granted, I can understand that..but it seems these have very limited use or appeal.

Unless you have framed blackout blinds that have a 'track' that the blind material 'runs' in which are very expensive...then it is always going to be difficult stopping any light leakage from a blackout blind.

Thanks OP, ordered a pink one, wanting this for a while.

Need one for my train journey to work. It's a pain watching Arrow, flash or gotham on my commute with sun shining all over my phone

I've been using one of these for about a couple of weeks now (moving house soon, so not going to start drilling in blinds), and it does the job just fine.

Yes, the suction cups are a bit of a faff, but wet them a bit and they stick just fine. I wouldn't want to be pulling it down and putting it back up every nap time, so I just leave it in place now and turn the lights on when i need to see what I'm doing in the nursery.

It's been very useful on holiday, too
