Long tubular sandbag to stop draft under doors.

The hard strips don't work for me because me floor is curved. Also I don't want to drill holes in the door.

What I've been doing is taking a pair of pants and stuffing them along the bottom of the door to keep the draft out.

What I could use is an elongated sandbag that I just pick up and throw at the bottom of the door whether I'm coming in or leaving.

That would be handy but I don't see it online. Surely this is being sold in some form. Anyone know what it's called or where to get it?

Thanks

I have the double draft stop one on a door in our place... it works pretty well.

There are all kinds of DIY "sandbags". From plastic shields to Dachshunds.

Must not be for exterior use I guess? Why are there drafts INSIDE?
