Sun Shade & RV Skirting Customer Feedback…
After more than a decade of providing high quality shade and skirting materials, EZ Snap has thousands of happy customers. Here are some reviews that we have received from all over the USA,Canada, and Australia.
Shade “Product of the Year”
Immediately reduced the heat coming through RV windows by 20 degrees.
Easy installation and 3M tape really holds... Really reduces the stress on AC cooling.
Thinking of adding to our bedroom windows to reduce hot summer sun coming in.
Glad I purchased this.
EZ Snap® Team - Thank you Ken.
I have had the RV screens for 3 seasons... My screens have significantly reduced my utility bills. I am so oooh glad I bought them!
EZ Snap® Team - Glad to hear it, thank you.
Cuts down significantly on the heat coming in the windshield area of our coach.
EZ Snap® Team - Thanks for your positive review and photos Fred.
If you are looking for Shading this is it.
The hardest part of the install was cutting screen. I used the 3m primer pen first. My camper is a 32RKTS Puma. I have some adhesives on the window frames and they are working just fine. I put mine 6 inches apart because I am on the bay in Matagorda TX facing west sun.
All in All easy to install. Measure twice cut once.
EZ Snap® Team - Happy to hear the RV Shades are working for you in the Texas sun.
I used the skirting on a 30' travel trailer following the directions, along with the helpful hints. It was installed in what we call the high desert in Eastern WA.
I installed the PVC frame and added 3 cross braces. After the complete installation I added concrete blocks on all the corners including the pop out.
2 days later we had gusts of 40 mph and it held up...
I believe it increased the inside temperature of the trailer about 10 degrees or so. I am pleased so far. See what happens through the winter.
EZ Snap® Team - Thanks for sending us your review.
Greetings EZ Snap!
First and foremost I want to tell you, GREAT WORK in designing an awesome RV skirting system!
I live in Wyoming and have for many years. Up until recently I was traveling all over the US working as a traveling Flight Paramedic. I got tired of being away from home and decided to change jobs to a paramedic job closer to home. I now work as a paramedic here for a County Emergency Medical Services, but it’s still two hours from my house. When I got the job my wife and I decided that I would need to get a new camper of some sort, to stay in, when I am in between my 24 hour ambulance shifts. We traded in our small 18’ travel trailer toy hauler and bought a used 40’ fifth wheel toy hauler.
This all went down over the summer and I really hadn’t thought about skirting.... that was until one night in September when the temperature dropped down into the 30’s! That night I really started thinking “this is gonna get BAD”! So I started looking around immediately for a skirting solution.
After a ton of research and some extremely scary pricing, I found your product. Initially I thought it wouldn’t be worth it, as there would be no way it could hold up to our winds and cold temperatures! I then did a ton of research and started to realize that not only would it work, but it also wouldn’t break the bank.
I sized out my RV on your website and ordered everything I needed. I also ordered the optional fifth wheel skirting kit with the trailer skirting.
I was really looking forward to getting it and installing it, because winter weather was coming! So when I got it delivered I was stoked!
Delivery was really fast and it only took like 5 days for me to get it. I followed the video instructions and installed all of the hardware first. I ordered the snaps with the adhesive and the screws, because I figured they would be the best for our insane winds here in Wyoming. This turned out to be the case, but I’ll go into that more in a minute. I was only able to get the hardware installed when I had a day off work, so I had to wait a day to install the trailer skirting.
On the day that I installed the trailer skirting it was a beautiful day with no wind. I got the the skirting sized and installed, however I didn’t have time to install the pvc pipes and pipe clamp system. I thought this wouldn’t be a big problem, because I was gonna finish it up two days later when I was off work. However.... not so much luck.
The day after I installed the skirting and was sitting at work, a sting cold front pushed through and the winds picked up to 70+ mph. I figured I was in big trouble. I figured this stuff had no chance of being attached still, because without the pipe system it would be flapping so bad that it break the pins. But there was nothing I could do but hope because I can’t leave work and leave an ambulance uncovered.
When I got back to the trailer I was floored! Only a very small section had come loose and as it turned out, it wasn’t the pins or snaps that broke but I fact a few caps had come loose. This allowed the material to come off of those pins in the wind. I don’t however believe this to be the fault of the product, I actually think I didn’t have the pins in the caps all the way. I reinstalled the ones that were missing and secured everything with the pipe and pipe clamp system it’s cement blocks behind it.
Now the thing is totally skirted in and with a small electric heater underneath the trailer running on low, the ambient temperature under the trailer is normally at least 30 degrees warmer than the outside temperature! I also use about a quarter the amount of propane every two weeks that I was using before. The trailer stays way warmer than it did before and there’s no drafts from the undercarriage!
I highly recommend the product to anyone looking for skirting that you can install yourself! It looks great, works great and is easy to install. Just make sure you don’t do what I did. If your gonna start the install , FINISH THE INSTALL. That way you don’t have to do things twice.
Thanks for the great product, that works excellently and as advertised! Bring on winter!

EZ Snap® Team - Thanks for feedback Jeremy.
This is a great product. I received my order very fast. EZ Snap fasteners are amazing.
I did not want to drill holes in my brand new camper so this was a game changer.
I followed the direction to the letter and had a flawless installation. Two people to install is a must; my son kept tension on the vinyl and aligned with our mark while I pushed it onto the studs.
They also included a vinyl trim tool with the kit that made trimming excess much easier than using a razor blade. I used a razor knife to ‘flare’ the bottom so it would fold under on the corners properly and the vinyl was difficult to cut which told me it is very durable, high quality material.
We built a frame with 3/4” PVC around the bottom and used the pipe clamps to secure it and it makes for a very clean, professional looking finished product.
I will recommend this kit to everyone!
EZ Snap® Team - Thanks for your positive review Mr. McKillip.
Our EZ Snap skirt arrived undamaged, no missing parts/pieces and on time.
The steps were very simple explained, the steps easy to follow, and the installation easy to complete. This was done with a two person team (my wife and I).
The total time was approximately 6-8 hours. We installed the skirt in the great state of Washington, just toward the end of the summer season.
The skirt has now been up for just a little less than a month, has been holding up well, and doing what it was designed to do.
Proud EZ Snap Owner,
EZ Snap® Team - Great feedback, thanks Derrick.
I am happy overall with the final result. I did paint my clips black so they matched. Everything else you can get different colors except the pipe clamps.
However it did take longer than advertised due to the amount of preplanning that you need to do in order to install correctly. The actual install only took a few hours but figuring out how to go around steps, bumpers, tongues and slide outside takes a while. Also pre plan where the snaps are going and where you want to double up for overlap and cut outs.
If you want to put your snaps closer together then the 10" max you will probably need to order more with your initial purchase... we have a lot of wind so I wanted them every 8".
EZ Snap® Team - Thank you Mr. Rusk for your review and photos. Very nice installation.
The folks at EZ snap were wonderful. They took great care of me and I received the exact kit I needed plus more. I couldn't have asked for a better transaction.
I'm looking forward to the winter to see the difference in my heating cost. For the last 2 years I've just about frozen to death in 20 degree weather for weeks on end.
All reviews told me it was good for negative 40 degrees so I'm hoping for the best.
The product quality was good and the ease of installing was pretty good. All of the agents were very good to lead me into the right direction of what I needed.
EZ Snap® Team - Happy to help. Thank you for your review Debra.
Thanks again for the wonderful product. Absolutely great quality and easy instructions... Would definitely recommend your product and next spring will be ordering your window shades.
EZ Snap® Team - You're welcome... thanks for your positive review.
First off .... Thanks for prompt shipping and UPS is the best out here in northwest, nowhere AZ.
This is an Excellent Product and it does lower the temperature inside our travel trailer.
Installation of the adhesive snap bases and the fabric is not a challenge. I marked all of the adhesive snap base locations prior to installing the snap bases. Ensure that you clean the attachment areas around the windows with isopropyl alcohol before attaching the adhesive bases. I used 70% without mixing additional water without issues to the gelcoat or the designs on the sides of the coach. I waited the full cure time (3 days) for the adhesive backing and used 5" spacing for the snaps because we have winds in excess of 45 mph on occasion.
Installation of the fabric is straightforward with paying attention to the provided installation pamphlet from EZ Snap. I ordered an additional bit of fabric just in case of oooooopps on my part. Adhere to the old adage... "Measure twice, cut once". Take no chances !!
Do not stretch the fabric tight when setting the fabric onto the pins and locking it into place, you could encounter problems later on and have to redo the positioning of the fabric.
Also, the snap removal tool works as advertised and comes in handy!
I will buy this product again and install on our next coach. Thanks EZ Snap for a great product!
EZ Snap® Team - Thanks for your positive review Brad.
Let me start by saying that this company was extremely happy to help me with this project. I ordered my skirting too short and they sent me an extension piece. It was my fault and they sent it only asking for the shipping cost. I bought some double sided tape, that’s made for vinyl, and taped it together. To save this step, I recommend measuring correctly before you order. 😉
Now, if you follow the video that’s on their website, you’ll be just fine doing this. My son and I did mine. I have a little arthritis so I used pliers to put the pins on. The rest was fairly easy.
I’m very happy with this skirting!
I spent approximately, $840 on the whole project. That’s including the pvc pipe. If you have a skirting company come and do this for you, it will cost upwards of $2300 or more!
We’re not professionals, but I think it’s just fine.
Thank you, EZ SNAP for your product and your support.
EZ Snap® Team - Thanks for sending us your review and photos Tamara. Nice installation!
We purchased our second roll of shade mesh to do windows in our second house.
The first roll went fast as we gave pieces to others to try and finished our primary house.
Quite the difference when we put up the ones in the dining room, west facing, it is now much cooler
in the evening... Next summer we will finish the other house, can’t wait.
EZ Snap® Team - Thanks for your repeat business Carol.
... Looks very nice after skirt was in place and my brother spent some extra time cutting and hanging the skirt around the stairs.
I live in trailer full time.
EZ Snap® Team - Great feedback, thank you Judy.
The EZ Snap skirting is looking awesome...
The guys were great and full of information on how to have a successful install. Super helpful.
Well a few weeks later I got to installing the studs to the trailer. I elected to use the adhesive type and had a warm day to install. All went well. I left the them to cure for a week or so. I was given the info that if you can leave the studs to cure for at least 3 days they would have better strength of adhesion. I also used the primer pen on all the locations which increases adhesion.
I got busy so the skirt install didn't happen for a couple more weeks. I watched the video and this sure helped on installing the skirt.
We laid out the material and measured the first section to start with. We elected to do the install in 5 sections plus the fifth wheel section. I have 2 slide outs and they each had one section of the 5. We over lapped the sections so as to not have any open joins. This was a good plan and will only need short pieces of velcro to hold the sections together.
The biggest question was to how to go around the stairs as I have 4 steps added out of wood as I am not using the trailer stairs. Well with some thought and slow cutting we figured how to do it within a section and not have to piece meal in pieces.
Last but not least, we did the fifth wheel section and this went very fast even with placing the door having been sewn into the section. We moved the skirt around a bit to get the right placement so it was fully accessible.
Thank you to EZ Snap for the kit and their help. Very happy with the result and the look.
EZ Snap® Team - Thanks Nick!
Really happy with the EZ Snap system.
Really easy to install and remove.
The shade screen has really helped with the heat in the summer. Makes at least 15 degrees difference from windows with the shade to windows without...
EZ Snap® Team - Thanks Derryl. Glad the Window Shades are keeping you cooler.
Thanks to EZ Snap I've completed a 14 window project in a Snap and the house holders are so very happy with the look and expecting great heat shun performance next summer as the hot season looks to be over for this year.
Expecting up to 3 other big west facing glass house projects come next June before the real heat of July hits us at our Lake Resort community.
Installation, product and service quality were all outstanding and much appreciated especially when installation promised timing was easily met with quality project results obtained
Thanks EZ Snap for making it a SNAP.
EZ Snap® Team - Glad to hear it Garret... thanks for your review.
Super product....so easy even a girl can do it!
Yes and I hunt and fish... but have no place as great to hunt as nice and productive you all have.
EZ Snap® Team - Thank you Alice.
We are new to the EZ Snap family and excited to have finally found the product we have been needing!
The two of us did the install in one day, which was made interesting by a quilter's measuring methods and a Highway tech's design haha! Measuring tape to t-square, and a lot of "eye-balling" to level the line made for some entertainment for the passers by, curious what we were up to.
They shared their stories of ice cold RV's with frozen gel foam mattresses to frozen water pipes and we told our memories of -4 camps with wind and snow far from any civilization, trying to keep thawed and warm. That camp spurred our motivation to keep saving up for what we knew we needed.
Each phone call and email to staff at EZ Snap was so helpful and the advice well taken. Certainly made the job go smoother!
While we have just installed our skirting and will not use it until October, we are convinced we will have the coziest camp ever and are really excited to have this addition to our camping adventures - thank you EZ Snap!!
Jack and Laurie Collins
EZ Snap® Team - Thanks for sending us your review and photos. Hoping you stay toasty and warm this winter!
As a child I always looked forward to the warm weather. However, as an adult and the owner of a home with sky lights, the summer months were dreadfully uncomfortable... not to mention extremely expensive when running the air conditioner nonstop from May through late September!
After looking through dozens of expensive alternatives I stumbled onto an advertisement for the EZ Snap Skylight Shades and figured I'd give it a try.
Not only was the customer service extremely helpful when choosing what kit to order but the installation was a breeze!
Now instead of living like an ant under a magnifying glass in my own home I finally get to enjoy the summer months again and start saving money on my electric bill!
Proud homeowner of the EZ Snap Skylight Shade system.
EZ Snap® Team - Thanks Bert. Glad the Skylight Shades are working well for you.
The skirting was fairly simple to install. It took my son and husband about 5 hours from snaps to skirting completion. The only issue we had was the snaps kept falling off in the heat, it was about 80 degrees, the ones in the shade stuck though. We had to buy superglue and glue one side back on.
Love your product.
This is my second purchase to go ahead and do the remaining windows in the coach.
Your product is easy to install, looks good and very effective at reducing heat inside.
EZ Snap® Team - Thanks for your repeat business Mark.
Bought one window kit to try it out in our dining room which was like an oven in the afternoon.
It was shocking how well it worked.
We have plants in that window and I was worried they wouldn't like the lower light. After 5 weeks they're doing great. They're getting plenty of light but no heat.
Just finished installing kits on all our east/west facing windows.
This product does what it promises. I'm so happy I found this.
Follow their directions and installation will be a piece of cake. PLANNING is everything.
One more thing: the caps and studs are slippery and easy to drop. Be careful and you'll save extra trips up and down the ladder and looking for them.
EZ Snap® Team - Thanks Dale, for the great review and your tips. Happy to hear EZ Snap is working for you.
Folks, you are fabulous!
Just Saw your email. Checked outside my front door. And there was a tall box of EZSNAP items. Yay!
What a pleasant surprise.
Had you not alerted me, the box may have stayed there all night.
Your customer service has been top-notch from the start. Much appreciated.
- Larry, Long Island NY
EZ Snap® Team - Thanks Larry, hope the installation goes smoothly for your big project.
We have a skylight in my daughter's bedroom, which let in too much light to let them sleep.
We used to have a room darkener fabric attached by velcro to cover the skylight area from the interior. It didn't look great, and it started falling down.
Thankfully with some quick research online, I found this fabulous product. We got the room darkening product by notating it in the order notes.
It's the ideal solution - it was inexpensive, provided room darkening and room cooling for a bedroom that has a skylight that the previous owner's of the house installed. Plus, it was really easy to install!
EZ Snap® Team - Thank you Amber. Great to hear that EZ Snap is working for you.
We are impressed by the quality, functionality, and ease of install.
I would definitely recommend this product to my friends.
EZ Snap® Team - Thanks Bryan!
I wanted you to know how happy I am with the screens used to cover the skylights and windows.
The heat coming from the skylights has been reduced dramatically and since the weather has been in the 30's it has made such a huge difference...
EZ Snap® Team - Glad to hear EZ Snap Shades are working for you.
So happy with the purchase of EZsnap screens and extra products to go with them.
Fast delivery, easy to order and no problems.
Very pleased with the product.
Easy to install and very good instructions.
EZ Snap® Team - Thanks for letting us know.
This is my third season using the EZ snap window covers for my RV...
These window covers cut about 30 dollars monthly off my summer cooling bills.
I am so pleased that I decided to purchase them.
EZ Snap® Team - Great feedback, thank you.
I just wanted to thank you for helping with my EZ Snap order and send you a few pics of my installation.
I'm very happy with my shades and hope that they prove to be durable and last with no issues.
EZ Snap® Team - Happy to help Paul. Thanks for sending photos!
Received the EZ Snap kit and extra snaps as ordered.
While it did come in "2" pieces (as advised it might for the length ordered), it was professionally seamed together with the velcro strips and did not hamper the installation.
The drill in snaps worked perfectly and I am happy with the quality and easy of installation.
Buena Vista, Co
EZ Snap® Team - Thanks for your positive review and photo Dennis. Nice installation!
I don’t know if you followed the weather in Alberta last weekend but we had sustained winds gusting from 50 to 80 km/h for three straight days.
My skylight shades were exposed directly to the wind. I was positive they would give way at some point. I was wrong. I’m very impressed they held up to gale force winds.
EZ Snap® Team - Thanks Fred. We appreciate hearing from happy customers like you.
I have been searching for years for an inexpensive way to cool my upstairs. I was almost ready to put in a second HVAC system when I stumbled upon EZ snap.
The windows face west and they get pummelled by the sun.
I just installed these and with my thermal imaging camera there is a 23 degree difference between the window with the solar shade and the one without. I could not even believe it. I went back every hour to check and it was still the same readings!
The install was super easy and it actually looks decent. I was worried they would look like covers over the windows but they appear more like thick window screens. Hopefully they hold up long term, but for the price you really can't beat it!
Thank you so much!
EZ Snap® Team - Glad to hear it... thanks for your positive review James.
Just thought you’d like to see a few photos of my installation.
I got up early while it was still cool and it only took me about 15 minutes to put the fabric on by myself. I had installed the studs a few days earlier...
It was a lot easier than I thought.
We have a hot week ahead of us so am looking forward to seeing how they perform.
Our sunroom had been getting over 30C on hot days. With the covers in place it hasn’t been over 24C so they have reduced the heat entering considerably.
I wish I would have installed them years ago.
EZ Snap® Team - Great news... thanks for your photos and positive feedback.
Best product ever. Finally got a chance to install, with the weather warmer (thanks for the heads up on making sure it was warm enough), Easy to measure, easy to install, and they look amazing. Already our front (west facing) block window is an improvement (not just for the look) in that in the afternoon when before I had to close the thermal curtains, now I can leave them open and actually touch the blocks--absolutely cool instead of incredibly hot.
Our office is on the back and gets the morning sun, and the room is impossible to keep cool. So I'm excited to realize how much cooler it will be. But we really got these for privacy, because the house behind us looks right in. For the first time, I can open the curtains and see the sky, and let the light in, without feeling exposed. Not to mention the same privacy now installed in the master bedroom!
So, I will tell everyone I know what a marvelous product you have. I actually have two more windows to do, and will be ordering another piece.
Thanks again, may you live long and prosper!
EZ Snap® Team - Glad to hear it... thanks for your positive review.
Our kitchen has a number of southern facing windows plus skylights. When the outside temperature got more than 90 degrees - the kitchen would get into the high 80’s. We ordered enough for two skylights and four windows with the EZ Snap system. Shipping was super fast and the packaging was well done.
The system was super simple to install. The install took about two hours, including going up and down on the roof.
After we installed, the temperature in the kitchen stayed in the 70’s even as it got to 90 degrees outside— a 10+ degree different. Take a look at the picture - you can see the outside temp is 93 degrees, while it is a cool 76 degrees inside.
Three pieces of advice:
1. Take your time and measure, re-measure to make sure you get it right.
2. Layout your screen in the same way you would cut wood or fabric to minimize waste. (Google "wood cutout program free” to find to free programs to do that.) With the best layout, you can buy exactly what you need with very little scraps.
3. If you are doing multiple side-by-side windows, line up the snaps on each window so that they are uniform and in the same location across the windows as you look at them. Makes the install that much more professional.
Super glad we did this and highly recommend it.
EZ Snap® Team - Great to hear. Thanks for your review.
You have a great, well thought out product that performs extremely well in the searing Australian sun (we get temperatures up to 46 degrees centigrade or about 115 degrees Fahrenheit - here in Adelaide in summer).
And it looks good when it’s in place, unlike most other shade cloth.
We have 4 windows shaded during last summer and it made a big difference to the temperatures inside our home and helped cut down on air-conditioning costs while adding to our comfort. These are the reasons we have decided to shade some more windows.
The removability is important so that we can maximise winter sun for its warmth.
EZ Snap® Team - Hello Ken from down under. Thanks for your positive review.
Winter had already set in by the time I could afford the skirting for my 5th wheel trailer, so I went with the screw in snaps instead of the stick on style. Then when it arrived, I got sick before I could install it so it was another couple weeks before I got started. By then it was early January.
Once I got started, the installation went quite smoothly, despite the below freezing temperatures.
Had it been warmer I likely would have had it done in a day, but since I had to keep stopping to warm my hands, it took me 2 days.
The first day I screwed in all the snaps. Then the second day I installed the vinyl skirting.
I did it all by myself. I just unrolled about 10 – 15 feet of skirting at a time and worked on small sections. I cut around obstacles (stairs, awning mounts etc.) as I got to them.
I put snaps underneath each of the compartment doors that got covered, as well as along the top of the skirting, so that I could make a cut along the bottom and sides of each compartment door, creating a flap that I then held down with a couple small strips of Velcro to prevent flapping in the wind. This let me drop the flap down while my tanks were draining, which helped keep the cold out from around the valves and the tanks.
As there was already skirting around the higher fifth wheel section to create a storage area, I used the Velcro strips to attach the new vinyl to the old.
To hold the bottom down, I went with pvc piping from the local hardware store, and the clips from EZ Snap to attach the vinyl to the pipe. As my trailer is 30 ft. long, I included 2 cross pieces for added stability, as well as the cross piece at the front and back.
Where the sewer line connects, I stretched the skirting out over the sewer line to protect it, rather than tucking it under the RV. Then I just used a few cement blocks to hold it from blowing in the wind.
I noticed a big difference, as soon as I was done. It was warmer inside, there was no more cold draft, and the furnace didn’t have to run nearly as often.
All-in-all, I am very happy with my purchase and would gladly recommend EZ Snap to anyone looking for easy to install, affordable RV skirting.
Thank You EZ Snap!
EZ Snap® Team - Nice to know the RV Skirting kept you warmer Bill!
I purchased the EZ SNAP for the first time as I had a Commercial Project in Downtown Milwaukee on a Large 14' X 14' Sky Light. The applications was simple just by following directions.
I made a template to allow for all of the snaps to be uniformly placed, used the supplied cleaner and applied all of the 3M self-adhesive rivets, waited 3 days for curing and returned to measured out the screening, applied the snaps, and press into place.
The customer has never used the conference room that the sky light was placed over until I was complete, the heat reduction and the lack of glare made the conference room usable.
As a Salesman and Installer I would use EZ SNAP again!
Please see the attachments of pictures that follow the steps I mentioned above.
EZ Snap™ Team - Great installation Jerry. Thanks for sending us your photos.
Very simple and easy to install... just needed a cordless driver, pencil, tape measure and a pair of scissors.
I was able to install skirting around my 33 foot RV with 3 slides in under 2 hrs.
EZ Snap® Team - Thanks for your positive review Harvey.
I had a hot tub cover with the core being melted and warped my the reflection from my bedroom window. The magnifying effect was so intense.
I put the EZ snap on the window and problem solved.
It was easy to put on. I like the fact it can be taken off in winter.
Great solution and exactly what I needed to save my $500 hot tub cover!
EZ Snap® Team - Glad to help. Happy to hear your melting problem has been solved.
I moved into this house a few years ago and our kitchen windows face southwest, so we get a lot of sunshine for most of the day. On very hot summer days the air conditioner would not keep up and the house temp would increase a degree or 2.
Sitting by the window, I could also feel how much heat was coming through.
After some research, I purchased the solar screen from EZ Snap.
I just installed the solar screen on the outside of my windows, and waited for a full day of sun to gauge the difference, and both my wife and I were very impressed on the reduction of heat coming through the window.
The install and ordering online was very simple.
EZ Snap® Team - Great review. Thank you.
EZ Snap® Team - That sums it up in one word, thanks.
Worked out great.
EZ Snap® Team - Thanks for letting us know.
I bought my EZ-Snap skirting in November and here it is March. The entire experience was wonderful. Work, but wonderful...
I have been delighted with my propane bill. I am very warm. The cat likes the skirt too. She guards the underside of my trailer from pests in warmth too.
The EZ-Snap team were helpful and responded to my questions promptly. It took us two days to install the skirt since were started after work. My son, grandson and I installed the snaps one evening and the next day my daughter-in-law, granddaughter and I cut and installed the skirting...
We completed the job just as a major snowstorm blew in.
Thank you EZ-Snap!
EZ Snap® Team - Happy to hear that you are saving on propane, warm, and comfortable.
I am very impressed with EZ Snap. I have been using the materials to cover some of the Windows in my new RV. The outcome is great!
EZ Snap® Team - Thanks Reggi
This is a fantastic product!
Very easy to install and remove for travel.
I put them on two 3' X 5' and a 3' X 6' window on our 5th wheel, shades do exactly as described.
You can stand in the sunshine and not feel any temperature difference from the shade.
I used some of the extra material to cover the sky lights.
Still get the sun but not the heat.
Here in central Florida where it is close to 100° everyday these shades are a great accessory.
The privacy they provide in close quarter camping is an added plus plus.
My wife and I thank you,
R V Nemitz
EZ Snap® Team - Happy to hear the RV Shades are working for you in the Florida heat.
It arrived on time in excellent condition. There were no parts missing and directions were clear and functional and easy to follow.
It's a very lightweight material and was easy to manage. I followed all directions and measured everything 3 times before marking with included pencil and then cutting to size.
I put the stick on snaps on and waited 3 days before attaching screen material.
I put my screen on the large back window of my fifth wheel.
From the inside it does not hinder view in any way. From the outside, you can not see in at all in the daytime. At nite with lights on you can see figures and movement.
The glass is considerably cooler now that I have added screen and I notice a definite difference in inside temperature.
I like the way it looks inside and outside. Very happy with my purchase and may in the future add the fifth wheel skirting.
So far a quality product and would definitely recommend to everyone.
EZ Snap® Team - Thanks for your positive review and photos... we appreciate it!
After many hours of research I found this “EZ-Snap” product the perfect solution to the problem of melting artificial turf caused by the concentration of the sunlight from Low-E glass windows. Windows with normal screens in them usually defuse the light enough to keep the reflective heat from melting the turf. However if standard aluminum screens cannot be fitted due to non-operable window or where there is only a screen on the lower opening part of the windows EZ-Snap is the great solution.
All other solutions are either unsightly or come with a 10% chance of window breakage due to the glass itself overheating. If 4 windows are treated with the other film type of solution you would have a 40% chance of having to replace one of the those windows.
Sunlight reflected off my neighbour's south facing windows.
The beam of light hitting my new artificial turf.
The temperature of that light at the turf is above 190 degrees.
The upper panes of the upper window with the EZ-Snap window coverings installed.
Looking out from the inside of the unit looks like a normal screen and does not take the view away. It also knocks the reflective heat down by about 75 %.
NIGHTMARE RESOLVED !!!!
Now I just need to repair the damaged turf.
San Francisco Ca.
EZ Snap® Team - Thanks for sending us your review and photos Tom. We are asked about how to fix melting turf all the time.
We received our EZ Snap order without a hitch.
Very impressed with the service and quick delivery on our product.
We will definitely be using you again and will recommend you to our RV community.
Thanks again for your fabulous service.
EZ Snap® Team - Thanks Debbie... we appreciate the compliments.

My newly-wed daughter and my new son in law live in a 5th wheel on our property to save money to buy a house. This is their second NW Montana winter in their 5th wheel and they decided to put up ez-snap vinyl siding. It was easy to install and looks wonderful. Immediately they noticed they were using less propane and their house is staying warmer. The truly amazing part though is that 2 days ago we got hit with a tremendous wind storm boasting up to 90mph winds. Tin ripped off the roof of the house next door, 3 trees fell on the other neighbor's roof, but the vinyl siding survived like a dream. One snap came off and was lost. That's it. We're eager to see how well it helps the rest of the winter!
Thank you for your superior product!
EZ Snap® Team - Thank you for Sharing your wind storm experience Kristen. When the EZ Snap pipe clamps & pipe frame are installed correctly, it makes a big difference to the wind performance.
We knew we would need extra protection for the winter for our new fifth wheel that we parked in Tennessee. My husband did some research and found the EZ Snap camper skirting solution so we ordered it in October.
It only took three days for the order to be processed and shipped out. We were installing the skirting by November 4th, 2017.
We used a large woodworking square to help us measure evenly to place the 3M technology push pin bases. We also found that using a chalk line was helpful, especially when skirting around the front cap.
Our lovely 1.5 year old assistant Evie provided plenty of support, along with surprise supervision from a toad!
The installation was easy and went well, taking about a half day. My husband used the special tool that EZ Snap sent us to slice off some excess skirting in a few places and with the exception of securing the bottom and adding some more custom Velcro and snaps around access doors, we were done!
The first week of 2018 has proven that our EZ Snap skirting has played a crucial part of our survival this winter, considering that we had temperatures under freezing for over a week and did not have any trouble keeping warm nor any frozen pipes!
Thank you EZ Snap!

EZ Snap™ Team - Thanks for the great review Emilee!
I am very happy with the product.
It was very easy to install it took less than one day to have all the screw in snaps all installed and skirting hanging.
I have a 42 foot 5th wheel, within a weekend I had all of it completely installed with pipe.
The price point was good and shipping was very fast.
I opted in for the heavy duty sewed in zipper... Its very heavy duty.
Also ordered the Velcro for the seams and it has stuck on and stayed in place through heavy wind and rain storms.
It is a very good product and I would recommend it to anyone who needs RV skirting.
EZ Snap™ Team - Thanks for the great review Ian. Much appreciated.
I have used the EZ Snap system on 4 houses now. I moved it along with the solar screens from Texas, California, South Carolina, and now Florida.
I'm a repeat customer because I lost the original pin and studs in my last move. That's how much I believe in EZ Snap.
There's nothing on the market that comes close to its durability and ease of use.
EZ Snap™ Team - Thanks for your review Mike.
Great product only took one day to install around 42ft toy-hauler. And looks great also!
EZ Snap™ Team - Thanks Steven!
This product worked EXACTLY as advertised. Very easy to install, and it really helps keep the room cooler in the Las Vegas sun.
I would highly recommend it.
EZ Snap™ Team - Happy to hear EZ Snap Shades are working for you.
Very easy to install.
Very surprised at how well it keeps the cold out.
Live in colorado has been hitting single digits at night 7 degrees. Have yet to freeze up.
Very pleased with product.
Cost was low compared to other products.
Glad i found EZ Snap. Would use it again.
EZ Snap® Team - Glad you are keeping warm! Thanks for the review.
Installation of the skirt on our Airstream (Betty) couldn't have been easier.
Cleaning the side of the trailer before attaching the adhesive fasteners took the most time and was my least favorite part of the process. After cleaning it was a straightforward and satisfying process.
I purchased both grey and black fasteners. I used the black for the on the black section of the trailer and grey for silver sections, this way you don't notice the fasteners when the skirt is not attached. I was glad to have this option.
Hanging the skirt for the first time required two people to ensure it is hung straight. This went much more quickly than I expected.
The total time to get all tasks done was around 6 hours. We are very happy with the tidy and professional looking result.
EZ Snap™ Team - Very nice installation. Well done Jeff. Thanks for the Airstream skirting photos.
I ordered the snaps and clips to put on our travel trailer for this winter as our daughter is back home and is living in the trailer. We wanted to add a tarp around the bottom to help during the winter.
I did a lot of research and these were the best ones we found that we could use with our tarp.
They were easy to install and have already proven their adhesion as we had a wind storm come through with 55 mile gusts and everything stayed attached.
I am very pleased with the products to anyone and will definitely order more if needed.
EZ Snap® Team - Thanks for your review.
Great for attaching shade material to wood arbors or pergolas when you use the screws.
Makes for easy removal come winter time.
This is my second time using them and I honestly cannot think of another way that would work better.
My application is a south facing wood arbor that catches a lot of breeze and the EZ Snap method holds my shade material down without any issues. I give them a 5 out of 5 stars.
I also use the EZ Snaps to hold down the same shade material on my home's skylights. Again, works great and I have never had the material come loose. Thanks for a great and useful product.
EZ Snap® Team - Your review will be helpful for others looking for do it yourself pergola ideas, thanks.
I found EZ Snap on line while looking for a solution to excess solar gain in our 5th wheel while snow birding in Texas.
As I considered the benefits of their product it occurred to me that I might be able to use it to solve another problem we have at home too. We have a building near our bird feeders that has several windows.
I wondered if installing the EZ Snap Screens on those windows might help prevent bird strikes on the glass. I can say now that it was an easy solution to a heart wrenching problem.
We have not had any bird fatalities since I installed the screening this spring. The screens still allow plenty of daylight into the building and, of course, it allows unobstructed views to the outdoors.
Easy to install and it performs as advertised.
EZ Snap® Team - Saving birds one window at a time... happy to hear about your success story.
We had had great success in putting the screens on to the windows of our RV.
The change in comfort inside was amazing.
Thus we ordered more material and fasteners when we got home so that we could cover the windows in the dining area of our house.
These windows are west facing and it gets incredibly hot in the dining room when we want to use it for dinner.
The shades were easy to cut and mount using the EZ Snap fasteners. The result was amazing - the area is now much more useable, and our air conditioning is now coming on less frequently.
There is an added bonus of more privacy - while we can still see our garden, our neighbours can no longer watch us while we eat.
EZ Snap® Team - Thanks for your positive review.
We installed sun shade on our 5th wheel back window and it definitely keeps the RV cooler.
We had enough fabric left to install the sun shade on 2 additional windows.
Product works as stated. Easy installation and removal for traveling.
Would highly recommend this product to anyone who needs a sun shade for their RV.
EZ Snap® Team - Thanks for recommending EZ Snap
Easy to install.
Works as advertised.
Cuts down on the heat radiating through your windows and cuts down on the air conditioning cost.
EZ Snap® Team - Thanks for the photos. We are satisfied when our customers are satisfied.
Got my EZ Snap skylight package on time, I called to ask a bunch of questions and was walked through everything from A-Z.
I’m not as handy as I’d like and these shades went on in a snap…no pun intended. I did take special care to prep the metal as instructed.
I like the look and the room is definitely cooler... Thanks EZ Snap
EZ Snap® Team - Thanks for letting us know Dave.
EZ Snap™ Team - Nice installation Wayne. Thanks for sending your before and after photos.
As promised, photos of my skylight shade installation. As you can see from the photo, I cut the material short to avoid the unsightly "folded corner" problem. This method however, may not work with larger, more exposed units, due to wind uplift and the exposed edge... Please feel free to share any comments you may have.
Follow-up 1 month later...
No problem so far for this particular application. I believe (avoiding folding the corner over) works better. I am satisfied.
EZ Snap™ Team - Looking great Jeff! Thanks for the photos.
Here are some photos of the installed EZ Snap shades on all of the south-facing windows and doors of our house in central Pennsylvania. We've covered the sunroom (center of the photos) and it has made a minimum 15 degree difference in that room. This has allows me to convert the sunroom to a more useable space - one we can inhabit year-round. Prior to the shades, it used to get into the 90's easily, despite being well insulated. The photos are a bit deceiving as those windows are floor to ceiling.
In the other rooms which are now covered, It's making a huge difference helping the AC keep up in the mid-day heat, and making the house an even temperature throughout.
We're thankful EZ Snap worked with us when we required more snaps than were supplied with our 50' roll. I'd gladly recommend your product for its effectiveness, ease of installation and how we're still able to open and close the windows as weather permits. The only recommendation I'd make is for a much larger number of snaps to be included with the longer rolls.
Thanks so much,
EZ Snap® Team - Thanks, we appreciate your positive review.
EZ Snap your product is saving me money!
The heat stopping ability of your screen has changed how we use our house.
We have 3 rooms that used to be so hot, we could not completely utilize them.
Your heat reducing screen has allowed us to now enjoy activity in these spaces.
We covered three skylights, a set of French doors ( facing south) and all the south facing windows.
We still enjoy the view from the windows and the added bonus is, the daytime privacy the screen provides.
We tested your product on one east facing window and were impressed enough to purchase enough for the south windows.
Thank you for such a good product.
EZ Snap® Team - Great news Frances! Thanks for letting us know.
Came very quickly.
Easy to cut and snap.
Hope the snaps hold out for several years on and off.
Will remove during the snow months return during the summer .
EZ Snap® Team - Thanks Jeffrey. Be sure to use the EZ Snap Removal Tool to easily separate your snaps when taking your shades down for winter.
Excellent product with ease of installation.
EZ Snap® Team - Thanks Richard!
I am sorry it has taken a while for me to give you feedback about my experience with your product, however my 95 yr old mother passed away on Christmas Day and that altered my priorities somewhat. On the positive side, that delay did give me more of an opportunity to ‘test’ the screens in the hot Australian sun.
Firstly, everything arrived safely and in reasonable time through the forwarding facility. The postage did cost around A$200 which I am sure you would agree adds quite a bit to the overall cost of the product.
You probably don’t recall but I was concerned as to how my outward opening windows would be affected by the use of your screens. It wasn’t until I really started to think about it that I realised my situation was even more complicated, as I have louvres. I was determined to find a way to make them work so spent a lot of time thinking before starting!
I found the ‘installation’ instructions very clear and simple to follow. I was pleased with how easy it was to prepare the surface and apply the 3m studs to the motorhome. In the end I decided to keep the corners of the screens square as I didn’t trust my freehand corner rounding!! I am very happy with how my motorhome looks with the black screens on.
The solution I settled on with my need to open the louvre windows when the sun goes down, was to unclip the two sides and the bottom and roll the screen up. Whilst this might seem a bit tedious for some it only takes a few minutes. I do hope however, that your product can withstand the test of time in needing to unclip and reclip each day.
The ability of your screens to reduce window temperature was well and truly tested with my motorhome in it’s current location. We have had several strings of hot days and very warm nights with daytime maximums over 40 degrees celsius. My motorhome is situated on a hill with no shelter, so the number of hours of direct sunlight on the windows is at a maximum. I realise it is a big ask for any screen to cope with these conditions - as I live in the motorhome I soon found that I needed to find a better solution for the extreme weather days, as your screens were not preventing the windows from getting quite warm.
So, I decided to try silver screens on the outside using your EZ Snap system. And I am pleased to say that it worked a treat, with the windows remaining very cool even on the hottest of days. The insulation I chose is just a little thick for your caps to stay firmly attached so I will make some adjustments to make it all work a little better. So, on the days when staying cool becomes more important that enjoying my view I will use the silver screens!!
In summary, I think your EZ Snap system is a winner. Before deciding to give your system a go, I was quoted a dearer price for custom made solar screens for the inside - which I find a waste of time, as they don’t prevent the windows from heating up. Being able to attach silver screens to the outside is a perfect solution and your EZ Snap system enables that to happen.
I am more than happy to share my experience and encourage others to consider your product. I am on quite a few caravan and motorhome forums where keeping cool is very often a hot topic!! I have no doubt people would find their own screen materials in Australia, thus reducing the postage costs enormously, and making your product more affordable — a smaller parcel with just the studs, pins and caps would have much cheaper shipping.
My two screen system, shade and silver, requires more of some of your pins and caps, so I will be in touch to order more, once I have determined if my slight adjustments work.
I hope this feedback has been useful for you.
EZ Snap® Team - Nice Work Pam. Thanks for sending photos of your RV Shades from Australia!
Awesome stuff Third order for me tks
J. Rustad, Salmon Arm BC
EZ Snap® Team - Thanks for your review and your continued business.
Worked perfectly. Easy installation and excellent protection for my Bomar hatches.
EZ Snap® Team - Thanks for the Bomar Hatch photos Peter.
I love my boat shades... easy to install.
They make a wonderful difference and keep our boat cooler without losing our view on the water.
Sincerely, in Idaho
EZ Snap® Team - Beautiful install Debbie! Thanks for the photos.
I purchased the EZ Snap screen to help keep our camper cool when the large rear window is facing south when camped. All we had was the accordion style pull down shade and it did not provide any relief inside of the camper when the sun was shining through.
The EZ Snap shade arrived quickly with good instructions and all the tools necessary to install. Sticking the little adhesive buttons to the camper was very quick as was the little pins to fasten to the shade.
Once installed the EZ Snap shade filters out most of the sun yet you can see from inside the camper looking out. Heat entering through the window is drastically reduced and you can feel it immediately. It installs and removes very quickly and is easily stored in the storage area of our camper.
This was a good purchase and we are very happy we did it.
EZ Snap® Team - Thanks for the photo George. Looking good!
We work for the US Forest Service and are stationed in Las Vegas in the summertime!!! So obviously I need something to help our new 2016 Bighorn 5th wheel get through the 110 degree days in the desert! I was searching for some type of window shade or covering.
We had used the standard silver coated window type shades for the inside of the windows in past RVs we had, but the problem is you can't see out of the windows and the heat still gets inside the RV.
I ran across the EZ Snap product and thought I would give it a try, and let me tell you I found the results to be amazing. As soon as I had the first side of our trailer done you could actually feel the difference inside the unit. You can hold your hand on the inside of the window and not feel the heat!
It was extremely easy to install and went faster then I thought it would. Our unit has the new style frameless windows and there was not a lot of info on installing on frameless windows on the internet. So I was a little intimidated at first but the instructions were easy to follow and I found it to be a snap to trim the shade around the window because of the frameless design, I just used the window as a guide for the cutter.
I would be happy recommending these as a great addition to any rv or home especially in a sunny location to help cut energy usage, but especially in a RV to help the inside stay cool and not have the AC unit work as hard.
EZ Snap® Team - Snap on, Stay cool...
I was very skeptical at first if the EZ Snap system would satisfy our needs.
The skylights in our kitchen caused about a 10 degree difference in cooling compared to the rest of the house.
My wife wanted to have remote control blinds installed but knowing I would have to do the install caused me to do a bit more investigating for another solution. At a fraction of the price of blinds, I decided to purchase and install the EZ Snap system.
WHAT A DIFFERENCE! Not only is our kitchen much cooler, but you can also see through the screens.
EZ Snap® Team - Great feedback, thank you.
I had a hot tub cover with the core being melted and warped my the reflection from my bedroom window.
The magnifying effect was so intense.
I put the EZ snap on the window and problem solved.
It was easy to put on I like the fact it can be taken off in winter.
Great solution and exactly what I needed to save my $500 hot tub cover!
EZ Snap® Team - Thanks for letting us know!
It reduced the heat in our RV.
The installation was as easy as advertised.
I would recommend it to anyone with a RV that is out in the sun.
EZ Snap® Team - Nice install Jeff. Thanks for sending in your photo.
Awesome. Saving my siding.
EZ Snap® Team - Glad to hear it... works every time!
The skirting is very high quality, it is pretty easy to install in the fall and disassemble in the springtime.
I went with the 3m adhesive studs because i didn't want to put any screw holes in my new 5th wheel...
Also purchased the clips to hold the skirting in place and bought some PVC pipe and created a skeleton around the base of the trailer.
Even with high winds it held up to the winter conditions.
EZ Snap® Team - Thanks for your review Jason.
Thank you so much. They look beautiful on windows as well as skylights.
Really followed directions and easy to do.
What a difference it makes. So glad we have done this. Talked about it last summer and happy this summer that they are on.
Have a great rest of the summer.

EZ Snap® Team - Thanks for your positive review Ann Marie.
EZ Snap was an affordable way for us to solve an issue in our home! We originally looked to replaced older windows in our daughters room and office. These windows face southeast. Each day the sun would rise, these two rooms would go up in temperature significantly and the room would be stale, unbreathable during the summer months in particular.
I did some research on government websites dedicated to energy conservation and they mentioned options for reducing energy costs. One of the options was to have the windows replaced, the other was to use an exterior shade.
After researching and pricing, we found the the EZ Snap product. It was far more affordable and a much quicker solution to our problem. It also did not require us to hire contractors as my husband was able to easily install.
The customer service team was also very helpful when we called with minor questions.
The best news is that I can once again work in my office during the summer months. More importantly, my little one is able to sleep in her room again! Perfect air flow once again. The bonus is that the rest of our home has benefited as well with reduced temperatures throughout. We only have central air so this is a definite plus for us.
This is a wonderful product!
EZ Snap® Team - Great news. Thanks for letting us know.
We love our EZ Snap shades. So much so, that we made a second order to shade additional windows.
We have five skylights and two very large windows in our great room. The shades work great.
They are easy to install and give the shade we need. And still have the ability to look out them with the same amount of visibility before they were installed.
We have noticed how much cooler it is in our great room this summer with them in than last year.
I highly recommend EZ Snap shades.
EZ Snap® Team - Thanks for recommending EZ Snap...
Pretty easy to install. Just follow the instructions. 🙂
Used them on our trip in July To Atlanta GA, Huntsville AL, Little Rock AR, Shreveport, and Longview TX before returning to home in FL.
They made an incredible difference. During several high-90 days with NO shade, the RV A/C ran almost constantly but was able to cool our 26' motorhome in the mid-70s.
Impressed with how much sun and heat they block because they are mounted on the exterior of the coach. (We've had bigger RVs with interior sunscreen shades which were not nearly as effective.)
For my little motorhome, I can install and uninstall the shades with the help of a 2-step stool in about 15 minutes. When removed, I just roll up the shades and store them in a bag designed for wrapping paper purchased at "The Container Store." (EZ Snap should consider offering something like this as an add-on at the time of purchase.)
Definitely, EZ Shades were one of the best purchases for my RV made this year. Hope the attached pictures are helpful...
EZ Snap® Team - Happy to hear the RV Shades are working for you. Thanks for the photos!
I bought EZ Snap screens to cover 2 sky lights in my kitchen roof.
Here in Philadelphia, having sun light and it's warmth in the kitchen is a huge benefit in the cooler seasons, BUT, we were roasting as the sun passed right over these windows this summer. We even had chocolate melt on the kitchen counter!
We found ourselves avoiding the kitchen midday because it was soooo hot. Yikes!
Receiving the EZ Snap screening and 'snaps', I waited until the cooler early morning (as recommended in the installation instructions), and crawled out our second story window onto the kitchen roof and completed the installation before the sun was up. It wasn't difficult. It took some finger strength, and in my case, a bit of balancing on the incline of the roof but what an INCREDIBLE DIFFERENCE these EZ Snap screens have made.
WOW! Just as advertised, we see out, the light comes through but the overpowering heat is gone!
The kitchen feels warm but (I wish I had documented some is the pre EZ Snap kitchen temperatures) NOT hot.
I could not be happier with this product. It is truly amazing what a difference it has made in our house (and electric bill!).
Thank you, EZ Snap!
EZ Snap® Team - Nice work. Thanks for your kind words.
This is my second time ordering and using EZ Snap products.
We thought moving our RV would solve our summertime overheating, wrong. The day I installed them on our old mounts you could feel and see the difference.
I recommend them to anyone with solar heat gain through your windows, especially the RV market.
Thanks for making our RV cooler,
EZ Snap® Team - Thanks for your 2nd order Bob.
Wife giving me hard time, heat from skylight, found EZ snap problem solved, I am very happy easy to install.
EZ Snap® Team - Happy Wife, Happy Life...
We just bought a small toy hauler with only 3 windows and the 1 on the door.
I ordered these shades for all windows listed and they literally took me about 30 minutes to cut and install.
Love the look on the travel trailer too.
It really helps cut the sunlight down on the interior.
I will never own another RV without installing these.
EZ Snap® Team - Thanks Pam.
My son has just installed the mesh.
Instructions were very easy to follow.
The product was up in no time.
Product works very well.
We are extremely pleased with product.

EZ Snap® Team - Thanks, we appreciate your positive review.
We installed the EZ Snap self adhesive fasteners on the windows of our fifth wheel RV. It has frameless tinted windows, and we attached the male parts directly to the glass.
The black poppers are almost invisible when the screens are removed for travel.
Installing our screen material was easy and we were able to get crease free screens. We had tried suction cup fasteners previously, but they did not stay put for long especially in windy weather.
We are very satisfied with our EZ Snap system as it substantially reduced the amount of solar heat getting into our RV.
We shall be ordering more for some of the windows at our house.
EZ Snap® Team - We are satisfied when our customers are satisfied. Thank-you.
I bought on line after reading about the product on your website. I needed it for a skylight in my kitchen in the summer the granite gets so hot and the glare was so bad I had to wear my sunglasses when I ate lunch.
After my son installed your product I could not believe the temperature change in my kitchen and there was no heat coming from my granite.
I love this product. It works just as you say it does. I have recommended it to all my friends and family. Great product. I love it.
EZ Snap® Team - Glad to hear it Mary! Thanks for letting us know.
Easy to install but not worth the cost. I spent $200 hoping that it would be half as effective at blocking the sun and heat as the website claims and I am disappointed. My home is just as hot and this material is not effective at blocking heat whatsoever. If you're looking to reduce AC costs, move to a new house. Don't buy this unless your goal is reduce the amount of light in the room by a small amount. House was 86° before they were installed on a hot day and its 86° with them installed on a hot day. I don't find that they were worth the money and I'm more disappointed because the only way to find out is to cut the material and render it "non returnable". I would return it and send it back if I was able. That would be the way for ez-snap to redeem themselves. Since they posted that their material, which is very similar to the material you put inside your silverware drawer, is 7 times more effective than sun shades and UV tint. My 86° house and I beg to differ.
All in all I gave 2 stars because the snaps work and it's reasonably easy to install but does not
Help against a hot house. Granted maybe I need more vents or something but don't advertise to give everyone the false hope that one size fits all and your house is going to be cooler if you spend hundreds of dollars on plastic snaps and silverware drawer fabric. It's borderline false advertising.
EZ Snap® Team - Thank you for your feedback regarding your EZ Snap install.
When we first read your comments, we were perplexed as to why you said there was"no heat reduction in the house" after your install. When we did more research on your application and your specific install, it became clear as to what was happening.
You had only ordered a 10 foot kit, but your room has many large windows and multiple skylights that directly face the sun.
The number of windows you have and their exposure to the sun, create a very large surface area of heat loading on your house. Covering just a small amount of those skylights or windows with your 10 foot kit will not help enough to make a major difference if the majority of your glass is still exposed to the sun.
Here is a link to an informative article from GreenBuildingAdvisor.com ( www.greenbuildingadvisor.com/blogs/dept/musings/calculating-cooling-loads ) that details calculating your homes cooling load requirements. This article is written about calculating a cooling load as it relates to choosing the proper size air conditioner, but all the same considerations apply when using an exterior shade screen to cool the home.
We know that EZ Snap will make a substantial reduction in the heat loading caused by your windows and skylights if you cover the majority of the ones that are allowing heat to enter your home.
The physics of shading and the thousands of happy, cooler, EZ Snap customers can't be wrong.
P.S. - We can also assure you that the EZ Snap mesh is a long way from being "Silverware drawer liner" to use your words. A lot of research and development has gone into creating the EZ Snap shading mesh to give it the properties and performance that it has. Presently, a number of our shading kit sizes are currently on sale, so this would be a great time to cover the rest of those exposed windows.
We bought the 50' kit and installed the shades on all our windows and doors in about 8.5 hours, the claim of a reduction in temp. is true fact. This product has reduced our temp. inside at least 15+ degrees.
EZ Snap™ Team - Thanks for your positive feedback Wayne!
We used the material to install a drop down shade to our existing awning. When extended, the snaps allow a quick and simple installation to the awning roller to provide a superior "sun shade" for cool occupancy under our awning. And, with the snaps providing quick removal, we retain the quick operation of our factory awning.
Buckie & Larry <">. <">
EZ Snap® Team - Sounds like a great idea. Maybe you can email us a few photos?
This is one of the most thought out, engineered, aftermarket equipment, that we have had the pleasure of installing on our RV in our 40 plus years of RVing. What a GREAT product. Installation video is EXCELLENT!
EZ Snap™ Team - We appreciate your positive comments.
We live in our 35 foot motorhome. Our home base is a RV park roughly half hour east of San Diego, CA.
Most of the year temperatures are regularly in the 90s or above. During winter months temperatures at night are regularly in range of 30s-50.
We have a large one piece windshield which radiates summer heat inside coach. After installing the sunshade material it dramatically reduced the amount of radiated heat from the windshield and large side windows.
After installing skirting (had use 3 different product sizes) our floor was 15 warmer during winter months. We spent one winter in WA roughly an hour north of Seattle and the skirting really helped on heating costs when temperatures were below freezing.
Heartily recommend the ezsnap products.
Installation is definitely a DIY project as product is purchased in bulk so user MUST plan installation and measure accurately...
EZ Snap™ Team - Thanks for the update John.
