What a shame! I wonder why they'd stop producing it, it seems to have a lot of good reviews and recommendations! Oh well, maybe Ebay can help me! Thanks :)

Hi

You can try the Windbag Pro.

Or if you really in a rush and need support, buy a pool noodle for R25, cut into sections. Cut a slice down the middle and slip it onto the window pane. ;)

Else there are lots of commercial bean bags that work really well
