How do I stick Clear Vinyl Sheeting to concrete and wood


I am trying to button up the house for the winter. I have a wood door in my unfinished basement that leads to the outside. I need to cover the door in a 8 mil vinyl Multipurpose Clear Sheeting. The problem is that in order to cover the door I need the vinyl to stick to wood and concrete.

Does anyone know of a good tape or glue that will stick to concrete, vinyl and wood but won't leave a residue (if possible). Something that will at least stay up all winter.

Thanks in advance for your answer.

Why not just install a weather tight door and be done with it.
Since we can not see it I'll through out a guess, why not just use the shrink wrap plastic made to temporally seal up windows and doors? It's sealed with double faced tape.

It's just an unfinished basement and someday I will do more than put plastic over the door but for now I need to put the plastic over the temporary door.

Do you have any ideas as far as what tape or glue I could use on concrete, wood and vinyl?

Not feeling real smart right now. I meant to buy the shrink wrap plastic. That is what I thought I bought. The hardware store that I bought it from sold it with weatherstripping so I assumed that was the stuff. Back to square one. Thanks for your help.

Surely the hardware store would have something like what you need. If not just return what you bought and get the right stuff.
