Rated 5 out of 5Â by Helpfulguy Great Alternative to Sandbags
Floodlock Door Protection Strips worked a treat in recent flash floods when we could not get sandbags. It did not stop the water coming in through air bricks or the toilet but it kept surface water out doors, the water level in the home was a few inches lower than up the doors. The multilever lock bolts on our UPVC doors cut through the strips when I locked the door. Much better than sandbags I think, certainly much lighter!. Hope not to have to use them again but will keep a couple of packs near our family first aid kit and put them in the door as soon as the Environment Agency warns us of any possible floods.

Rated 3 out of 5Â by rollawal not for upvc doors
got these after a recent flood alert. they are recommended on flood forums but do not seem to be suitable for upvc doors as they would block the lower locking mechanism - hence they would only protect the bottom 6 inches in a flood. They also affect the overall seal on upvc doors when the door is shut as they push the door away from the frame. Have not yet had opportunity to test their effectiveness - thankfully! Probably work well on other kinds of doors

Rated 5 out of 5Â by HuddsBob A great product
I recently bought a pack of these strip from a retailer and they are great, if you have a need to quickly defend a door, and don't want to go to the expense of building a sandbag wall or use one of the many alternative sandbags, these are great and you can keep it in a drawer.
