Door Draft Stopper


what would you use for a door draft stopper for a bedroom door?

i've seen these cheap tubes in stores, but don't think they work.

Door Draft Stopper


What type heat do you have?
The reason I ask is if it's forced air there needs to be a gap under the door for return air flow.

Is the reason you need this is because the room is going to be unheated and your trying to close it off?
