A draught excluder is used to eliminate cold draught and slow heat loss. It is placed in the bottom crack of doors and windows.[1][2]

Tubular sand-filled fabric draught excluders are commonly referred to as "door snakes" in Australia.[3][4] Jenny Agutter told The Guardian that the hotel in the Outback where they stayed while making Walkabout used them to keep venomous snakes out of the guests' rooms.[5]
