Advantages: Reduces the light in the room
Disadvantages: Marks on the glass
This is a great little idea that I have found very useful when wanting to make sure my daughter gets a good nights sleep on those occasions when we are not staying in the family home. We also found it useful some nights during the summer months when it is light outside. It was recommended to me by a friend and cost £24.99.
In terms of dimensions it is 200cm x 135cm and is a deep black colour, running across the top and bottom are four suckers and along both sides there are 6 small plastic suckers and it is these that you apply directly to the window to form an effective screen. The screen itself is very lightweight so I have found that the number of suckers provided are enough to support the weight and I have never had a problem with this not staying secure and in place for the whole night. Size wise it is perfect for pretty much any type of window and the only time I have had a problem was at one friends house where they had two very narrow windows in the room either side of the bed and this product was not able to offer any help in that situation but there is a rather uniquely designed house and one of a kind. There are straps along thye side to allow you to adjust for windows of different heights.
There is a star pattern on the screen itself which faces inwards and the outer side is just black, the whole thing is easy to remove and store away in its own carry case which you can see in the picture above. The backing has a smooth surface that is resistant to moisture should any condensation form in the night, it does not end up getting soggy and heavy and is easy to wipe dry if needed.
It certainly is effective at reducing the light that enters the room and while you are not left in a total black out it is effective at dampening significantly the impact of sunlight and once it gets dark outside any nearby street lighting. It is ideal for taking away with you as it does not take up a lot of room and it is easy to put up and remove. The only real downside to it are the marks that the suckers leave on the glass but that just requires a quick wipe with a cloth.
Summary: Good product
