XFasten Window Insulation Kit Instruction Manual

Window Insulation Kit Installation


1. Clean the window frame. Ensure the window frame is free of dirt, dust, and oils so the tape adheres properly. Wipe with a damp cloth and dry thoroughly

2. Prepare your tools. Gather all necessary tools and materials before starting to streamline the installation process. Prepare scissors or utility knife, tape measure, hair dryer, window insulation film, and double sided tape.

Installation Steps:

1. Measure and cut the film. Measure your window’s dimensions. Cut the plastic film approximately 4 inches wider and longer than your window to ensure full coverage.

2. Apply the double sided tape. Apply the tape around the window frame, staying close to the edge to maximize the sealing area. Ensure that the tape is applied smoothly without any creases.

3. Attach the film. Start at the top of the window frame, remove the backing from the tape, and carefully attach the film by pressing it onto the tape. Gradually work your way down the sides and then to the bottom, smoothing out the film as you go to avoid any air pockets or wrinkles.

4. Heat and shrink the film. Heat the film evenly using a hair dryer. Start from the corners and move towards the center. The film will tighten and clear as it shrinks, ensuring a drum-tight seal.

5. Trim the excess film. Once the film is tight and clear, trim the excess material around the edges with scissors or a utility knife, leaving a neat finish

Tips and Troubleshooting:

1. Avoid stretching. When applying the film, avoid stretching it too much, as this can cause it to tear or not shrink properly when heated.

2. Bubble removal. If bubbles or wrinkles appear, gently lift the film off the tape are reapply, smoothing down as you go.

3. Tape adhesion. If the tape isn’t sticking well, ensure the surface is completely dry and clean, or replace the tape with a stronger adhesive if necessary.

Maintenance and Removal:

1. Cleaning. The film can be cleaned with a soft cloth. Avoid using abrasive cleaners that could scratch or puncture the film.

2. Removal. To remove, gently peel the film from the frame and roll off any remaining adhesive tape. Clean the frame with soft cloth soaked in rubbing alcohol or vodka to remove any adhesive residues.
