Great! So glad I found this. I initially found this on Home Depot's website, but the Amazon price and Prime could not be beat. What a great find - well made and heavy. It fits my attic hatch perfectly. I carried the box into the attic, opened the box in the attic, then carefully shimmied down the attic stairs while getting the insulation into place. The insulation is very warm. It was probably about 30 degrees in my attic on the day I installed it, and as soon as I was under the insulation, it was basically like throwing a heavy down comforter over your head. Many other reviews spoke of modifications to make this item more sturdy. I think it is pretty sturdy as is. It is quite heavy so it forms a nice seal against the attic hatch with its own weight. The silver covering can be pierced easily with fingernails so I made a gentle fist and used my fist against the tent shape to move it around. We can notice the difference already. The stairs leading to our second level and our upstairs landing was always freezing because the attic hatch is right there. You could feel a difference as soon as the insulation was installed. 5Great, added to other attic insulation improvements This works well to finish insulating your attic. First, I covered my rafters with radiant barrier (aluminum) insulation (few hundred bucks and a lot of sweat. That alone lowered the attic temp at least 20 degrees from maybe 135 to 115 on a 100 degree day.Then I added to the paltry builder's code fiberglass insulation enough to get 24" or about R60 across the whole attic floor (maybe $600). Finally I bubble wrapped my attic air handler and refrigerant line and added this stair insulation kit. Now, on a 100 degree day in VA, my upstairs ceiling temp stays within a degree or two of the thermostat setting, and the HVAC doesn't need to work nearly as hard. 5Works Well, With My Modifications UPDATE October 12, 2017: Four years now, going on five, and I still have no complaints about this blanket, with my modifications. I've poked holes in it (patched with foil tape) and repeatedly pushed it aside, pulled it back into place, completely removed it and mashed it out of the way in the attic, and it's still holding up. It's a great low-cost, simple solution for attic stair insulation.UPDATE August 31, 2014: After using this blanket since November 2012, I can still fully recommend it, with my mods. It has held up to all of my pushing and folding it out of the way as I climb in and out of the attic. And my mods mean no fiberglass in my face. I'm very happy with this inexpensive solution!As you've probably figured out, this is a shaped fiberglass blanket, wrapped in foil. What wasn't clear to me is that it's open at the bottom, so fiberglass is exposed all along the bottom edge where it is supposed to seal against the floor. This might be fine if you rarely use your attic. I, however, use my attic all the time, so I don't want fiberglass in my face whenever I have to move the tent away.And, like other reviewers, I found that the blanket didn't sit very well against my attic floor, leaving gaps.Here's how I solved both of these problems, and made the thing work great for me. You'll need two things: a roll of foil tape (like Scotch Aluminum Foil Tape 3311) and a roll of foil bubble insulation (like Reflectix BP48010). Cut the foil insulation into strips about 10" wide and as long as the sides of the tent. Use strips of the foil tape to attach the bubble insulation to the outside of the tent, loop the bubble insulation under the tent (covering the fiberglass) and tape the other edge inside the tent with more strips of foil tape.You can use short pieces of foil tape -- no need to cover the entire edge of the bubble insulation. Make sure you make loose loops, so there's 2" to 3" between the bottom of the fiberglass and the bottom of the loop if you were to press the loop flat. You're essentially extending the base of the tent with loops of bubble insulation. Don't tape the corners: leave them open so you end up with "flaps" of bubble insulation. And bite the bullet and use foil tape, not duct tape; duct tape won't stay put. The foil tape should last forever.Once you've taped your bubble insulation around the base of the tent, you can position the tent over your stair opening, and pull the edges of the bubble pack INSIDE the stair opening, making kind of a skirt. The bubble pack loops give you something to use to pull the tent into place, the skirt makes it possible to cover all of the gaps between the tent and the floor, adds insulation, and covers the exposed fiberglass. Also, you can push the bubble insulation flat. It's thin, so it doesn't interfere with the operation of the stairs.I also made a couple of handles using 8" x 4" strips of bubble pack insulation, foil taped inside the tent, to give me something to grab when repositioning the tent. That was my first attempt to improve the tent, when I was afraid that I might poke holes in it while trying to move it around. You might try this, too, but I find I don't use them very much now that I can just grab the bubble pack around the base and use that to pull the tent into position.Hope this helps! 4Tested with thermal camera. It works! I have a Seek Compact thermal camera and had been using it to try to figure out why one room in our house was considerably colder than the rest during the winter. The thermal camera showed that the attic door was 12 degrees colder than the insulated ceiling around it!I was a bit suspect of this product when I removed it from the box - it's just some foil-faced insulation taped together (and as others mentioned, the bottom edges aren't even sealed!)But, I propped it up over the attic hatch and closed the stairs, then waited 2 hours. When I checked the ceiling temperature again with the thermal camera, the attic door was now 2 degrees cooler than the ceiling around it.Today, I walked into the room and was struck by the fact that it WASN'T cold like normal.This product works and really helped - despite it's simple (and rough) appearance, it's worth the money for how simple it is and how well it works. 5Works as advertised This product works exactly like it is supposed to.Before I installed this product, I put an infra red thermometer on our pull down attic stairs. The entire wood front of the pull down stairs was 10-12 degrees cooler than the surrounding walls.After installing the insulation, the temperature came up and matched the surrounding walls. No more energy leaks from this area.Installing was simple. Just unfold and center.Make sure to measure your attic door opening. This product just barely fit our rather large opening. 5The attic is super hot and just putting my hand up to the ... I believe that this stair tent saves our house from losing a huge loss of conditioned air. The attic is super hot and just putting my hand up to the inside of the attic access was very warm prior to the installation. Now you can feel no difference in the temperature there even when you pull open the access...no rush of warm air anymore. ;-) . I did tape all around the edges of the tent with HVAC tape as the fiberglass was just hanging in the open and I certainly did not want to leave it like that....open to the touch by the hands and over the head would not be pleasant when accessing the attic space. Although it was a pain I think taping it was well worth the effort. Great product. Very highly recommended. 5WOW! This makes a huge difference in the draft coming from the attic door I ll be honest I never thought about insulating the attic door. It s always cold in the upstairs hallway, but I just figured that s how this house is. Of course the thermostat is right under the door and I am always amazed that it reads what it does when it feels sooo cold. My neighbors put the box out for recycling Tuesday and it got me thinking what a great idea to insulate your attic door. Of course I went to amazon to see what other alternatives were out there besides the pink panther brand the neighbors bought. But ended up going with the pink panther brand. It just looked thicker then the other versions. It arrived Thursday but I procrastinated a day about pulling down the attic stairs and installing this thing. When they say easy to install, it never is. A couple of deep breaths mind over matter you will be fine climbing the stairs don t think about being afraid of heights, just install this thing and get safely down the ladder. It flipped right open I slid it over the attic opening. Super easy to install. I was able to do it without having to climb into the attic. This morning when I woke up I was amazed at what a difference this little pop up tent blanket thing made in the temperature in the hallway. I can t wait to see the difference in my heating bill. 5Works Great The entry to our attic was right at the top of the stairway to our second floor. Before the Attic Cover you could feel a noticeable temperature difference as you reach the top of the stairs. Using an infrared thermometer I would see a 25 difference from the ceiling to the attic stairs. After installing the Attic cover, this difference was reduced to only 3 .The install was straight forward and simple, and had immediate impact.I recommend following the instructions and not opening the box until you have it in the attic, this will reduce the chance of ripping the reflective material. 5Good insulation, but NOT easily removed to access the attic. Good insulation, but NOT easily removed to access the attic...Installation was easy, just unfold and place. It does seem to help lower heat loss through my attic stairs. However, the fiberglass insulation is exposed at the bottom edges. After a few times moving it, the fiberglass and foil at the edges is coming apart. I only go in my attic a few times a year.Also, it doesn't seem deep enough to allow space for the folded stairs. There are gouges in each side where the stair frame has punctured the foil.Pros:Easy installationSeems to insulate wellCons:Not durable once moved.Not deep enough for stairs. 3So far so good I just installed the cover. The weather in Texas is beautiful so really can t comment on how it performs. The box appeared to be an original unopened box, however the cover seemed to crumpled to me for it being new. There was a small tear on the inside I could easily repair, I already had a small roll of aluminum tape. I would suggest you have a roll on hand. The cover is pink insulation sandwiched between 2 sheets of heavy duty aluminum foil. It was very easy to install in my attic door opening. I have never installed one before it dealt with insulation (I am an active 73 yr old widow woman), so I didn t realize I would need to shower and change clothes LOL. Be prepared. Wear dirty clothes LOL. I am anxious for night fall, there usually is a draft in the hall and I am hopeful there will NOT be a draft tonight. I hope this helps you. 5
