Draught excluder - what is the difference?

    Lidl v. Aldi. What is the difference between the two besides the price?

    The right hand one seems to suggest it has two lengths of it. It would seem to be the same product

    These are brilliant at stopping spring loaded doors from slamming. I actually need to replace one so thanks for the heads up.

    I put one of them on the door to the office at work and could not believe the difference for such a cheap price.

    These sorts of things can be decent. Depends on the door, floor, and whether there's a rug in the opening arc.

    Buy a few while you can, because you'll end up going through them, and also pick up some double-sided tape to re-affix battered ones to the bottom.

    As for the specific difference, depends on length and number of units per pack. They're pretty similar. Keep your cut-offs: with the tape, they can add up.

    That said, best one I have is a nearly 20 quid yoke from Woodies.

    The difference: the Aldi foam is thicker in diameter and slightly better quality. Don't think it's worth double the price though
