● Do not fit hard up onto the door — you won’t be able to close the door!

check_circle
DO's

● Ensure door has sufficient gap for the

● RP120 to fit. If it doesn’t fit, it isn’t going to fit

● Pull both liners out together while holding the seal firmly to the corner of the door rebate

check_circle
DONT's

● Do not try to adhere to a rough surface — it will fall off

 TOP 6 MISTAKES 
filter_1

Fitting EMV when there is insufficient clearance between the door and jam causing the door to bind (difficult to open and close).

filter_2
Incorrect measurements! 
filter_3
Fitting Draught Dodgers without the packer. 
filter_4

Fitting Draught Dodgers without looking at the red/green dots to work out right and left.

filter_5
RP78 — the driver slipping off the screw and tearing a hole in the silicone seal — there is no silicone seal replacement.
filter_6
Incorrect sequence of installation:
* Draught Dodgers - install RP3 or RP35 first, then  Draught Dodgers
* If fitting RP78, fit RP78 first, then Draught Excluder on bottom of door
* If fitting RP120 or EMV, the sequence of installation does not matter
