Shade “Product of the Year”
EZ Snap® Team - Thanks for the photo. Nice installation. Glad to hear that EZ Snap Shades worked well to save your plants from the heatwave of 2021!
I was searching for a resolution for excessive radiant heat coming in from the large window by the couch in our camper. Went online, looked at several products and was initially impressed with EZ Snap.
So I called EZ Snap and spoke with a representative about their product. Discussed installation, materials , care, etc... Took all the information provided and digested it.
Went out to my RV and took the measurements as directed and called back to a EZ Snap customer representative. He was very helpful, took my measurements, explained how much product I would need and then took my order. They also talked me through the installation of their product, very helpful when it came time to do the install.
EZ Snap did their best to get the product to my house in the minimum time so I could build and install one shade before my next trip which was coming up in a week. The product arrived, I unpacked, read the directions and started.
Really pretty simple and there was ample material to do the job.
To keep the process simple and easy two people are required..... if you are smart. Well all steps finished and off we went up to Glacier National Park for a week. It was day two of our time in Montana and it got pretty hot outside and we put the EZ Snap shade up and it performed as well if not better than advertised.
Could not get over how much of the radiant heat was blocked from inside the RV....at least 98%. Marvelous product and I will recommend it highly to all my RV friends and acquaintances. In fact, there was one person at the campground who asked me what I was installing on my window and I explained it to him, later the next day he asked me how it worked and I told him it worked GREAT and highly recommended the product.
Overall great product and am extremely satisfied with the EZ Snap shades.
EZ Snap® Team - Thanks for the positive review Conrad.
The EZ snap system worked well for my RV. We’ll find out if it stands up to Colorado winters here shortly!
The snaps were a little hard to place, it would hurt my fingers after a while. And my complaint would be the screws don’t seem to be beneficial. If there is a breaking point in the system it would be the black caps attaching to the adhesive part, not the adhesive part coming off.
The 5th wheel portion was not long enough to touch the ground on my trailer so I had to add fabric to the bottom which was a disappointment.
The people were helpful though and responsive at EZ snap. The fabric seems made of good quality and was easy to cut.
EZ Snap® Team - Thanks for your feedback. For others reading this, the Hitch Enclosure Kits are 72 inches tall and are a universal fit if the 5th wheel is on level ground.
After much research I was so happy that I decided to purchase this product for my mom's skylight on her mobile home.
It was so easy to install and it works great! I love the fact that it keeps the heat out but the light in; this was my goal.
I am so happy with this product and I would recommend to all!
EZ Snap® Team - We are happy to hear that you are happy... thanks for letting us know!
Greetings from Campbell River, BC.
We watched some YouTube videos from Ray’s “Love your RV” and had a chance to visit him to see the results. Thanks Ray for allowing us to interrupt your day.
Went back to our RV, planned out the project and placed our order for EZ Snap. The complete order arrived a few days later and my wife and I set about installing on our Grand Design 5th wheel.
Installation was easy peasy, took our time to clean the surface carefully, placed the bases where we wanted and let everything cure overnight. My wife made sure I cut carefully and then installed where I was supposed to.
Started installation on the shady side of our RV and finished with the hottest window.
Infrared temp inside was 107 degrees farenheit before shade cloth was added and 97 degrees after, a full 10 degrees lower. Love it.
Also we previously had to keep the shades pulled down in the living room due to reflection from the windows on the TV. It is a pleasure to pull up the shades now, see the outside and watch TV.
Thanks, great product and in our mind well worth the money!
Jim and Jan K.
EZ Snap® Team - Thanks for the detailed review! Say hi to Ray from us if you see him again.
Just put everything together yesterday.
The job isn't hard but took me most of the day, by myself. I would maybe do a few things different for cutting around the bumper and tongue.
Can't wait to really try it out this winter.
Wife took a job in NW Colorado and will be living in the camper.
EZ Snap® Team - Thanks for reporting back Ken.
I used EZSNAP coverings on 4 skylites.
They were super easy to install and have made a huge difference on temperature in my house. They are great because you can see out and they still let light in, but most of all because they do what they say they will do, and that is keep the heat out.
You can't go wrong.
EZ Snap® Team - Thanks for the positive review Julie.
These shades are the best. We tried many ways to help keep our camper cool in the sun.
Our living room area has 13 windows, and the sun really has an impact. The bedroom has only two small windows in the inner sides of the slide out, and stays good and cool. The living room and kitchen area would be over 90 degrees with one AC running. (Only have 30 amp service).
We were concerned about any solution that would require drilling holes in the side, not knowing where the wiring or aluminum studs would be located.
We first changed our blinds to try to block the heat to no avail.
We then tried a reflective film that made zero difference. You could feel the heat on the hot glass with your hands.
We were skeptical that anything would make a difference, but knew we needed a solution that would be outside, not inside, so we gave this a try. Wished we tried this first!!
Amazing results. They went up really easy by using a string to keep our lines straight, and using the adhesive snaps.
Our glass is much cooler to the touch now in direct sun, and our AC can now keep pace with the heat!
This is the best DIY solution out there! Thanks for a superior product!
Bruce & Bobbi
EZ Snap® Team - Thanks for compliments and photos Bruce & Bobbi! Very happy to hear the EZ Snap RV Shades are keeping you cooler in Maine.
My project was a commercial 5 x 10 skylight.
Ordering the EZ Snap was easy and the product came with all items needed to install.
Installation was easy as advertised and the goal of the installation was achieved - specifically reducing the heat generated.
I would recommend the EZ Snap product.
EZ Snap® Team - Thanks for your recommendation.
These EZ snaps were a great purchase and really kept the heat out of our camper.
They actually kept the camper cooler and the air conditioning didn’t run as often.
The fasteners were very easy to install and did not take long to attach. Putting the shades on when we arrived at camp were a snap. Even taking them down before traveling was easy with the provided tool. Just don’t forget your ladder.
In addition, these shades allowed us to keep our curtains open and see what was going on outside without the hot sun shining in.
I definitely recommend this product. They are well worth the money spent.
Happy Camper Mel
EZ Snap® Team - Thanks for reporting back Mel.
Our hallway skylight put out a lot of heat from the overhead sun. At mid-afternoon, the area around the floor below read 92 degrees, and the living room heated up to 85 degrees, with the AC running continuously.
After installation of the EZ Snap skylight cover, the hallway was as cool as the rest of the house, with the thermostat set at 75, and the AC rarely kicked on.
What a huge difference! The sunlight is still there, but without the heat!
I strongly recommend this product for any skylight or window that lets in heat.
Santa Rosa, CA
EZ Snap® Team - Thanks for your positive review Ann! Great to hear that EZ Snap is keeping you cooler in Santa Rosa, CA.
I purchased the black skirting and was skeptical at first but I must say we love the look.
After installation, numerous camper friends asked about it and stated they will be looking at installing.
My only complaint is the pvc clamps are white. I will be painting in the future but it would have been nice to purchase black clamps.
Installing took approximately 3 hours.
Company personnel were very helpful.
EZ Snap® Team - Thanks for your review and photos Scott. Krylon paint for plastic works well on the pipe clamps...
I am not sure how I came upon the EZ Snap website a couple of years ago, but I am sure glad I did!
This spring I ordered a kit to cover two large skylights in our second floor home. The blistering sun would make the upstairs almost unlivable, even with central A/C.
I figured the investment wasn’t too great, the instructions on the website seemed doable, and I had a neighbor willing to go on the roof (I was temporarily unable to kneel).
The communication from EZ Snap was excellent!
My neighbor knocked the job off in a short time; the instructions and tips were extremely helpful. We did everything "by the (EZ Snap) book” and my wife and I are confident the result will be long-lasting relief from the summer sun.
Steve T. - Moorhead,MN
EZ Snap® Team - Thanks for your positive review Steve. We are happy to hear that EZ Snap Shades are keeping you cooler in Moorhead, MN!
I was very satisfied and impressed by the ease of installation and simplicity of the products.
The shades really make a difference in the hot sun helps cut down a lot of heat coming in even through tinted coated windows.
Thank you so much... your support team was great too helping me with another attachment method.
EZ Snap® Team - Thanks Mike... happy to help.
Very easy to use... took no time to install window shades.
Thank you for a very well made product.
EZ Snap® Team - Thanks for the compliments Diana.
I found EZSnap relatively easy to install.
With good planning, an adequate place to layout your materials, measure and cut... it went smoothly.
EZ Snap® Team - Thanks for reporting back Tom.
We purchased the EZ Snap product for our RV that is in full sun all day.
We received our EZ Snap kit and found it very easy to follow. The screen was very easy to cut with the handy cutting tool that was provided by EZ Snap!
Since the installation, we have noticed a considerable difference of the temperature in our RV and especially near the Windows.
We can still see outside but the Sun and the UV Rays are blocked out!
It's been 2 months and our electric bill from the air conditioning units, has gone down considerably compared to last summer.
We chose the black screens, which have a very attractive look.
We wish we would have discovered this product sooner! One word of advice: order extra snaps, it's very expensive if you need a few extra pieces. Also, don't expect to reach customer service on the weekend if you have a question about the product. They are not in until Monday morning.
Overall, we are extremely satisfied with this product and have already recommended it to other campers!
EZ Snap® Team - Thanks for your positive review and photo Linda!
EZ Snap is as advertised – EZ!
Prior to applying the product I went on to our roof and washed our skylights and flanges. While I was there I measured the skylights with a Sewing Measuring Tape – flange edge to flange edge. I did this to get the true measurement of the skylight with the curvature included.
After that I followed directions and applied alcohol cleaning solution, using the cardboard cutout, to the areas I wanted to mount the studs (I chose ~8” apart). I let studs sit 24hrs as recommended.
The next morning I cut my shades to my measurements, took them up to the roof, applied the pins and mounted the shades. It was EZ!
Wish I had found this product a few years ago – works as advertised – rooms are cooler, we can still see out and light still comes in.
EZ Snap® Team - Nice to hear. Thanks for your review.
Purchase ez snap sun screens for our 5 th wheel in Eloy, Az. Where we have brutal summer heat of triple digits. Last year we had 144 days of triple digits with absolutely no shade.
The shades have help cut down the heat inside and we are hoping it has helped cut down our utility bill. This will be the first bill with sun screens on.
Process was very easy from start to finish. Office was very helpful in ordering and the screens were easy to cut and put up.
We will be ordering skirting for 5 th next to also help with heat.
I will post after we get our bill how much we saved in utilities.
EZ Snap® Team - Thanks for your kind words. Great to know that EZ Snap RV Shades are keeping you cooler in Eloy Arizona!
I love the ez snap sun shades.
They have made a big difference with helping to cool our RV in the brutal AZ heat.
They were easy to install. So glad we purchased them!!
EZ Snap® Team - Thanks for your positive review and photos Amy!
We recently purchased two EZ Snap covers for our skylights.
First we only had one delivered as we wanted to see if it lived up to it’s great ratings. We were so impressed with my first installation that the second cover was ordered.
I am not a skilled trades person so for me to install them with ease is a testament to not only the product but instructions and YouTube video directions.
Prior to covering our skylights with EZ Snap the heat coming through filled our house to an uncomfortable level. We could feel an immediate cooling and are so impressed have told anyone that would listen how great they are.
EZ Snap has lived up to it’s stellar reviews and should you decide on their product will be impressed I’m sure.
EZ Snap® Team - Thanks for reporting back Glenn.
I searched for a cover for my sky light in the kitchen, and EZ snap was the best.
I am a 67 year old woman, but I climbed on my roof, cleaned the metal with alcohol, put on the plastic circles with a little glue ( recommended for high wind areas) waited 24 hours and attached the mesh. I cut the excess off after I attached it.
Very simple and I think it's made our kitchen about 15 degrees cooler.
I would recommend EZ snap to everyone.
EZ Snap® Team - Thanks Wendy... nice work!
Our home has a skylight in the upstairs hallway. In the summer, that hallway is ridiculously warm. When you would walk out of the bedrooms you could instantly feel the heat radiating down from the skylight.
I bought a skylight sun shade kit and installed it over two days. It was very simple and easy to install. One of the best decisions we have ever made. Not sure why we waited until the third summer in this home to do it.
I cannot begin to describe how drastically the temperature has dropped in the hallway. When walking from the bedrooms into the hallway now, there is no temperature change. It has to be 10-15 degrees cooler than it used to be. Helps keep the whole upstairs cooler.
We love this product, and would highly recommend it to anyone! It will keep the heat out while also still allowing light in!
EZ Snap® Team - Thanks for your review and photo Trent.
Now that the critical skylights have been covered I do indeed feel a difference.
I am also very happy with the light that comes in and that I can see through them.
The installation was very easy after the cleaning and prep work.
I wish I’d done this years ago. My air conditioning is out until August so this will help immensely right now.
Thank you for your patience in answering my questions.
I highly recommend your product.
EZ Snap® Team - Thanks for the update Diane. Happy to hear that EZ Snap Shades are keeping you cooler.
I investigated having window shades installed by a company that does it professionally. It's pretty pricey! So I went to the internet and found
I read the information, watched videos and read reviews. I was a bit apprehensive when I measured my windows and ordered my kit. I knew I could do the job, but figured it would be a real pain in the butt... but I was wrong! It couldn't have gone much easier.
I have 7 windows in my Flagstaff 5th wheel and took the mornings of 4 days to install (1 day to let the 3M studs set up). I ordered an extra 60 EZ Snap fasteners because I spaced them a little closer together than 10". I mounted them on the glass windows and trimmed the corner to match. They came out looking GREAT!
I am in Texas and the sun can get pretty intense, especially if your rear windows face the west.
I had an immediate reduction on the inside temperature of my RV of at least 10 degrees right away.
Since they are designed to block heat and let in light I still use my shades at 'half-mast' during the later afternoon on the west side because the sun is pretty bright on the TV, but the heat effect is not there and that makes me happy 🙂
Thanks for an awesome product that saved me several hundred dollars over retail installation.
EZ Snap® Team - Thanks for your 5 star review Peter. Nice to hear that EZ Snap is keeping your RV cooler in Texas!
Instructions were easy to follow.
I installed the fabric on a skylight on our pitched roof. I put the snaps (anchors) on the sides of the skylight about 5" apart, with just a little of the fabric beyond the snaps.
We have had some high winds since I installed it, but it held just fine.
It lets in plenty of light and temperature in the room is about 5 degrees cooler than before.
EZ Snap® Team - Thanks for your positive review Robb. Nice to hear EZ Snap Shades are keeping you cooler!
We purchased e EZ Snap window coverings for our children’s bedrooms and our large family room window.
They were easy to install, and went up very quickly with two people.
We noticed a 2-3 degree decrease in the house temperature. Definitely has been welcomed with the warm summer we are having!
We have been so happy with the product that we are ordering more for our cabin now.
Alex & Christy
EZ Snap® Team - Thanks for sharing your experience Alex & Christy. Awesome to hear that EZ Snap Shades are keeping your family cooler.
I’ve finally installed my snaps and what a difference.
This product is exactly what I needed. Hold really well. Can’t wait to see what it’s going to be this Canadian winter.
I give it a five stars...
-Great and easy instructions
Will return to this company for sure if need be.
EZ Snap® Team - Thanks for your 5 star review Johanne!
My family lives in Sammamish, Washington, just a bridge away from Seattle. Yeah, that Seattle. Rainy, cloudy Seattle. No one owns an A/C, Seattle and if you do, it probably doesn’t work well.
Yet when we do have sun, and it's more than you think (we don’t share that to keep people away) the three skylights on my roof not only makes the upstairs smoking hot, but it is also ruining the stairway carpet.
We began looking for a solution to provide some sort of shade that could be done both easily and cheaply. We came across EZ Snap. Wow… EZ SNAP really did make it easy on both ordering and installing.
As a guy who is better with building websites than building projects around the house, I was really impressed with the simplicity and brilliance of your website. I am not a handyman so I was pretty intimidated. But, the step-by-step process was so clear and easy that even I could and did succeed.
So, thank you EZ SNAP for helping me to measure, purchase and install the shades on my house.
We are thankful for all you do to make it so easy for anyone to succeed in cooling the house and lengthening the life of our carpet.
EZ Snap® Team - Thanks for your kind words Steve. Nice to know that we are keeping you cooler in rainy (and sunny) Sammamish!
We have had our shades screens for over 6 years.
The EZ Snaps make it so easy to re-install the shades each year.
The EZ Snaps are readily available to re-order and ship quickly if you need to replace any of them.
The fact that we can remove them at the end of the season, easily store them and re-use the shade screens each year saves money.
They also protect our furniture and carpeting from the sun rays.
Stan and Pam
EZ Snap® Team - Thanks for continued business and your review Stan & Pam!
I purchased the easy snaps and they were very easy to install. I installed solar screen on my RV.
These things work amazing. No worries with the high winds, hot days or freezing cold.
The salesman was very helpful.
Thank you for this product. I will definitely be ordering more in the future…
EZ Snap® Team - Thanks for your review.
EZ Snap® Team - Thanks for the photo Bob. Nice work!
The summer heat gain in my office was due entirely to the lower half of this east-facing window - one of only two east-facing windows unprotected from the summer sun.
It took some effort to find you but it was worth it; the EZ Snap screen turns out to be the perfect solution. It eliminated entirely the morning heat inside the house.
And, mounted directly on the glass, it is virtually undetectable outside unlike every other solution I considered.
Finally, despite initial trepidation, it was dead easy to trim and install even with last minute adjustments for the irregular shape due to the concrete blocks overlapping the window frame...
EZ Snap® Team - Thanks for telling us about experience with EZ Snap.
My Easysnap covers worked great.
Followed the directions and had no problem with the installation.
Tested the heat coming into my RV, results were more than I expected.
My AC doesn't run all the time now. Great product.
EZ Snap® Team - Thanks for letting us know Ron!
We haven’t had our skylight EZ Snap very long but we noticed a big difference before we had the heat wave come.
Upper 100 degrees for 6 or 7 days. Thank God I ordered them on time because we have 4 skylights in our bedroom!!
It was still very hot but not as hot with out them.
EZ Snap® Team - Thanks for letting us know Cindy.
I have not got it up yet. We were waiting for a day when me and my husband can be home at the same time.
But as for a review I'm already loving the material for the skirting. It gave us peace of mind when I felt how heavy it is that we will be protected in winter here in montana.
Customer service is amazing.
My husband just removed the 5th skirt and says that it is "super cool". Can't wait to get it up. I believe it will be perfect.
I'm glad I found ez snap. Just hope that we do a good job when we do it!
EZ Snap® Team - We're glad you found us too!
We live in our RV year-around here in Northeast Oklahoma. Needless to say, it gets a little warm here in the summer, and the afternoon sun can be challenging especially when your largest windows are pointing to the West.
Glad we decided to try the EasySnap...IT WORKS GREAT!
Super easy to install with a pair of scissors, tape measure, while utilizing the white wax pencil enclosed with the fabric.
Thought I was going to have to buy a window a/c unit for this summer, but not now.
GOOD JOB, EASYSNAP!!!
EZ Snap® Team - Thanks for your kind words Albert... it's great to know that EZ Snap is keeping your RV cooler in Northeast Oklahoma!
We installed them on skylights.
They have definitely cut down on heat, and yet the light comes through.
It is early, but I think they were a good decision.
Much cheaper than custom made shades!
EZ Snap® Team - Thanks for your review.
I found EZ Snap and after watching the information video I contacted the company.
My questions were answered and I found the staff to be very knowledgeable and helpful.
My wife and I cut and installed our new boat shades and we are extremely pleased.
I have recommended EZ Snap to seven friends.
EZ Snap® Team - Thanks for the photos Scotty... nice installation job!
I installed the EZ Snap window shades on my 40ft motorhome.
I was a bit apprehensive about installing the shade over the front windshield myself (in North Dakota wind).
It turned out the project was much easier than anticipated.
The layout calculator made it very easy to make the right cuts without a great deal of waste.
I installed all the snaps (3M adhesive type) one day and then a couple of days later installed the shade.
It is working great and everything is looking good.
Thank you EZ Snap!
EZ Snap® Team - Thanks for letting us know Dan.
We love living on an island in the Mississippi River but early morning sun and water reflection was heating up the house 10 degrees through our 13 feet of windows.
Your window shades have cut that heat gain to zero while keeping our amazing view.
It worked so well last year we added them to our west facing bedroom windows this year.
Great product. Amazingly easy to install and remove.
EZ Snap® Team - Thanks for your review and photos Gary. Glad to hear that EZ Snap Shades are keeping you cooler on the Mississippi River!
I ordered the EZ snap window shades for my exterior windows in the front of my home.
I ordered them because I had installed new turf six months in front prior and realize that the Low E windows were actually reflecting the sun and melting my turf.
Also the front of my home faces the sun midday and I wanted the added benefits of sun blockage and reduction of cooling costs during the summer months here in sunny California.
With the help of my husband, we installed the shades in a couple of hours.
EZ Snap® Team - Thanks for your review and photos. It's nice to know that EZ Snap saved your turf from melting!
We purchased the EZ Snap skirting for my son’s RV that is in a colder and windy climate. I was unsure if the material would stand up to the environment. But once we opened the package, it was clear to us that this would work just fine.
The material is thick and sturdy, but very easy to work with.
We had his entire 40 foot RV skirted within three hours. There were three of us working on it.
It’s been on for a few weeks now and looks perfect still (even though a very strong wind storm took place recently). Only thing we did differently from the video installation guide was to have more cement blocks around the perimeter of the RV, on the inside, holding down the skirting.
On a side note, the RV Park management is extremely happy with the look and is going to recommend EZ Snap to everyone.
EZ Snap® Team - Thanks for the compliments Jeff!
Fabulous product at a very fair price. Easy to install even for those with no skills like myself.
One thing I would do differently; Measure and mark all stud locations on each skylight before opening the primer pen. I did one side at a time and by the time I put primer on the last side the primer was pretty low/dry. Good thing I had another pen.
Thanks for a great product!
EZ Snap® Team - Thanks Barry... nice to hear that EZ Snap worked for you.
The Problem: Melted Vinyl Siding
We ended up discovering EZ Snap when researching what was causing the vinyl siding on our house, as well as our neighbour’s house, to melt. We discovered that the most likely culprit was the sun reflecting off the energy efficient windows that our new house was built with.
In the pictures with this review, you can see how the sunbeam was hitting the neighbour’s house and creating long streaks of melted siding.
After discovering what was causing the problem we set out to find a solution. At first I called several window coating businesses in our city to explain the problem and see if there were any local solutions available, which there were not. So, turning to Google, we found that there were three solutions:
1. Build and screw an actual screen over the window
2. apply a dispersing coating to the window
3. EZ snap screens
We decided very quickly that we did not want to screw anything to the house. With the extreme freeze and thaw we have here in our region of Canada, that seemed like a recipe for disaster to us. We debated for a time over the glass film, or an EZ snap screen, and ultimately went with EZ snap because it seemed like a more forgiving application process. I mean, applying a screen protector to an Ipad or cell phone without bubbles was annoying enough, I didn’t want to have to try to attempt it on a window-size scale, even though our problem window was very small.
The Solution: EZ Snap
Unfortunately our project was so small that we didn’t qualify for free shipping. However, the sizing instructions and ordering platform were very easy to use, and after reading a few of the reviews we decided to also order a couple extra pins for our tiny project. Given that the area we were covering was so small, we probably went a little overboard with the number of pins we used, but we decided it was better to have more pins per surface area than fewer. We placed our order and were expecting it to be delivered in a week to two weeks, given that it was coming from the US. Products from the US coming to Canada are notoriously slow. We were extremely surprised and happy when it arrived within 3 days of being shipped.
The Application: The instructions for application of the screen were clear and easy to follow.
We measured twice and cut once :-). While the screen was on the floor we also laid out the pins around it to determine where we would put them before I was out on the roof again. We also determined that we wanted to attach the pins to the 3M studs BEFORE I went out on the roof again. This went against the instructions, but our reasoning was that I could only just barely reach the top left corner of the window, and the snaps to attach the pins to the studs were so tight it would have been impossible, and very unsafe, for me to do stretching on my toes on a steeply sloped roof. With a plan of attack in mind and armed with a ruler, I went back out and placed dots with a Sharpie at the predetermined spacing. I kept the studs with their pins applied in a bag that I clipped to my jeans so I had easy access to them, and easily applied the studs to their pre-marked locations. We waited 24 hours before applying the screen to the pins, as per the instructions. The screen was a little tough to jam over the pins, but the only truly difficult area was the top left, which was entirely due to my reach, not the product. The caps snapped onto the pins easily after the screen was applied.
Click on the video, below, to see for yourself:
The Conclusion: Overall we feel quite pleased with our choice to go with EZ Snap to protect our house and the neighbour’s house from further solar damage.
Shipping was fast, installation was easy, and the black screen is practically unnoticeable due to how dark our windows usually look against the dark siding of our house. Unless you knew it was there you wouldn’t notice the screen so I feel that it doesn’t diminish the aesthetics of our home at all.
10/10 would recommend EZ Snap.
EZ Snap® Team - Thanks for your review, video, and photos Shannon. We're happy to help stop your siding from melting and we're glad you found us!
EZ Snap® Team - Thanks for your feedback Tim. We've checked our records, but can't find any order with your email address on it, so not sure how you were using the EZ Snap Fasteners... or how you were trying to snap them off.

Very happy with my purchase of a 10 foot roll.
Window is 8x5 feet.
I ordered extra fasteners and the high wind ones with screws for a total of 66 for 5 inch spacing.
Installation was very straightforward and easy. Definitely need 2 people if installing on a large window.
Can't see in but can see out. Pictures on the website are very accurate.
Window faces west so it gets hot evening sun. After putting up the mesh hardly any heat getting inside the house. Have not had any high winds yet so cannot attest to that feature.
Would recommend it to others.
EZ Snap® Team - Thanks for the positive review and photos. Nice installation!
Wanted to say a big THANK YOU.
I've installed the screen on my home skylights in our family room and it has made an enormous difference!
This week it has been over 106 degrees and the house is so much cooler with the air conditioner working about half of what it did just weeks ago at lower temps.
You have a great product and I'm so glad I found you before going with another approach. I'm recommending to my friends here who are also enduring the heat of Northern California.
EZ Snap® Team - Thanks Bill! Great to hear that EZ Snap is keeping you cooler in Northern California.
... When I got up this morning, I really noticed a difference in the light in the living room. That’s going to be an unexpected benefit for me as I’ve just been diagnosed with macular degeneration in one eye and the sun is one of the main causes, after heredity. So less sunlight in the house is a great benefit to me.
Thank you again.
EZ Snap® Team - Thanks for the update Linda.
When I first got the kit I was a bit overwhelmed but the documentation that came with it, plus the guidance available on the internet assuaged my fears.
My calls to the company were answered quickly and the person I talked to was informative, amiable, and encouraging.
I used the adhesive connectors and was pleasantly surprised how easy they were to apply. I let them set for a couple of days and attached the screen.
It looks great, helps with the heat, and has good visibility.
PS. Here's a short Video Review
EZ Snap® Team - Thanks for your review, photo, and video. Nice to hear that EZ Snap is keeping your RV cooler!
Well after EZ Snap material arrived had no problem cutting to size for my 3 sky lites.
My handy man found all instructions very understandable and in no time they were up on my roof sky lites.
As we hoped for we still got the sunlight in the kitchen & living room but without the heat. Perfect for the inside plant garden in the living room.
EZ Snap® Team - Thanks for your review Stewart. Happy to hear that EZ Snap is keeping you (and your plants) happy and cooler!
I purchased the exterior skylight shade. As indicated on the website the no-drill fasteners were easy to install, the screen mesh cut to fit easily, and pinning the mesh in place was simple.
The shade immediately made a difference in the brightness and glare coming through the skylight.
My only negative comment is the website's claim on blocking the sun "without blocking the view." When the sun is directly shining through the shade, I can see the sky fairly well. When the sun is not directly shining, the sky is obscured by the screen. Since it is a skylight, it's not that big of an issue. If I used the same screen material for a window, it might be a problem for the view.
EZ Snap® Team - Thanks Craig
Personally, I love the EZ Snap. It was easy to install just measure, cut and stick. The instructions were clear and I was able to install it by myself.
I originally bought it as the summer sun warms up the camper a lot and I wanted another layer of shade.
The added bonus is that it acts as a privacy screen where you can see out but no one can see in. Overall I’m pleased with my purchase.
EZ Snap® Team - Thanks for your review and photos Chris. We appreciate your feedback.
We had been covering our two skylights with foil blankets covered by tarps for a few years. This was effective but ugly for our neighbours and darkened our interior.
EZ Snap was easy to order and install and we find it works amazingly well. And it is very unobtrusive. The neighbours are delighted and so are we.
My son and I installed the two covers in under an hour. We checked and double checked our measurements before cutting. I would suggest that an extra inch or so in all directions does no harm.
EZ Snap® Team - Thanks for your positive review and photo Helen... great to know that EZ Snap is keeping you Cooler!
The installation was easier than I thought it would be.
We have had a few days in the high 90's. Couldn't have the window shades up in that heat before.
99 today and window shades are up. Can't believe how much of a difference the covers make.
Our air conditioners actually cycle like they should.
Best investment we could have.
EZ Snap® Team - Thanks for letting us know Jerry... very nice to know that EZ Snap is keeping your RV Cooler!
Thank you for making it easy for us.
The only suggestion I would make is to have black PVC pipe clamps for the black skirting. I will need to paint all the clamps black, because otherwise they would show too much.
EZ Snap® Team - Thanks for your feedback Marc. For other customers reading this, the white plastic pipe clamps can be painted with Krylon spray paint or any other paint that is made for plastic.
Living in SW Florida in the summer is tough. The sun is intense and temperatures are in the 90’s and can reach 100.
We did 3 windows facing the hot setting sun. Here are photos of 2 of the windows. The round one is in the TV room and the one on the right is the kitchen window.
The round one is my fish stain-glass. When the sun hits it, it is so hot on the inside that it hurts to touch and the heat being given off into the room is unbelievable. It makes watching TV uncomfortable and the room heats up .
Now the glass is just barely warm and the room does not heat up.
The kitchen window was above the sink and the heat made it uncomfortable to do dishes. Now I have no excuse when my wife asks me to clean up after dinner.
This stuff works.
EZ Snap® Team - Thanks for sending photos and a great review James. We are very happy to hear that EZ Snap Shades are keeping you cooler in SW Florida!
We live in California and when the sun beats on the windows, it gets very 🔥.
We have triangular/quadrilateral windows and there was no modern option to block the heat while maintaining the beautiful view of the back yard...until EZ snap.
The website provides all the information and any handy person can do this with a partner (Smaller windows can be done by one). One of our windows is 143 inches long and it came out great!
EZ Snap® Team - Thanks for reporting back. Nice to hear that EZ Snap shades are keeping you cooler in California!
Dear EZ Snap Team,
I recently ordered a 15 ft skylight kit and was very pleased with the ease of installation and results!
Prior to installation, I cleaned all of the snap contact surfaces with 70% IPA solution waited for the surfaces to dry thoroughly and then applied the primer. As advised by your team, I used one primer stick per skylight - that worked perfectly because each primer stick lasted about 5-10 minutes and was enough to cover about 26 snap locations.
The snaps were very easy to assemble and install. To aid assembly of the two snap components, I used a multi-purpose, handheld screwdriver with the bit removed - so that we could uniformly press down on the top surface of the flange and it snapped easily onto the adhesive base component.
Maintaining tension on the fabric was a bit tricky - especially on the middle skylight, because I had to work left to right, top -> down and that was awkward due to the close spacing of the skylights.
In summary, I am VERY pleased with your product and would highly recommend it to others. We have already experienced some sunny days since the installation and the temperature in the sun room has dropped significantly!
EZ Snap® Team - Thanks for the photos and your positive review Paul. Glad to hear EZ Snap Skylight Shades are keeping your sunroom cooler.
Just replaced the skylight material after almost 10 years. Squirrels finally ripped them up for their nests!
Highly recommend- 5 star.
EZ Snap® Team - Thanks for the 5 star review Mark... it's nice to know that EZ Snap Shades are keeping you cooler in Charlotte, NC. Would be great if we could get a review from the squirrels too... maybe a new market segment that we've missed!
Purchased the EZ Snap clips for front vinyl skirting utilizing the 3/4” pipe to hold skirting down to ground for weather and appearance.
It gives it a finished look, tempers wind blowing skirting and easily allows access for storage.
Price was fair and shipping was quick and good follow up after purchase.
I will buy products from them again.
EZ Snap® Team - Thanks for the review Curt.
Good afternoon. The following is my review of the 10’ Exterior Skylight Shade Kit (white mesh/grey studs):
I recently installed the 10’ exterior skylight shade kit on my 8’x 6’ skylight just in time to beat the summertime heat in Southern California.
Installation was extremely straightforward and the instructions were easy to follow.
Everything I needed for a professional appearing installation was provided, including the cutting tool to remove the excess mesh material.
My previous shade cloth kept blowing away, leaving the skylight constantly exposed. However, this skylight shade kit fastens securely to the sides of the metal skylight housing. I now no longer need to keep climbing up to the roof to readjust the shade cloth!
In addition, the mesh material feels very durable, and I am hopeful that it will stand up to the elements. My local municipality requires that homeowners install cool roof materials. I chose the white mesh option for my skylight shade kit and it blends in perfectly with the rest of my cool roof.
EZ Snap® Team - Thanks for the positive review and photos David. Nice installation... those white Skylight Shades look great on your white roof!
We have mega windows in our TV room that overlooks the backyard.
In the summer, the windows turn to magnifying glasses and amplify the heat and it becomes intolerable without air conditioning.
In the winter, the sun comes down in the afternoon and is blinding.
Finding anything modern to block the heat and the glare and still provide a view seemed impossible until, you got it, EZ snap.
I followed the instructions, rented a tall ladder and we got it done in a snap. One unanticipated benefit is that the window looks really clean on the inside because the glare has been reduced significantly.
I love the windows, I love the view and I love EZ Snap!
Thanks a bunch!
EZ Snap® Team - Thanks for your positive review and photo Karine. Glad to hear that EZ Snap Shades are helping with heat and glare while keeping your great view!
I was a bit apprehensive about installing the shades at first but those fears were totally unfounded.
I followed the instructions carefully and the install went smoothly. I put them on the south and west facing windows of our fifth wheel and boy what a difference they made!
The rig is noticeably cooler during the hot Arizona days and being able to still see outside is awesome!
Thank you EZ Snap.
EZ Snap® Team - Thanks for the review Russ. Happy to hear that EZ Snap RV Shades are keeping you cooler in Arizona!
I installed it on the 3 front windows of my 35 foot boat.
The male part of the snap had already been installed on the three teak windows of my trawler by the previous owner. I chose to use them.
The edge of the teak window frame was used as a guide to cut the EZ Snape white material, with the supplied EZ Snap cutter.
It both helps keep my boat cooler, plus gives me some privacy at the marina.
EZ Snap® Team - Thanks for reporting back Warren.
A RV friend recommended I look into EZsnap for my 5th Wheel. We bought a campsite facing South. We have the sun from morning until sunset. It’s brutally hot especially coming through the large back window and the dinette windows.
I decided to try EZsnap. I ordered the 15’ kit with a lot of extra glue/drill snaps in tan to match the outside. I followed the video directions. I am 5’4” and over 60.
I got out my hubbies electric drill, a quilting ruler and a sharpie marker, climbed up the ladder and marked all my snaps. Took off the sticky back, pushed them in place and anchored the screw using a screwdriver and electric drill.
I followed the directions to position the screen fabric and tried not to stretch. In hindsight I wish I would have made it a bit tighter on the huge back window.
Then I pushed all the snap locks on. This part was a bit tough as my fingers hurt a bit after doing 5 windows.
So Worth It!!! Oh my goodness, I can not believe the difference it has made.
We LOVE eZSnap! Best investment we’ve made for the 5th Wheel.
EZ Snap® Team - Thanks for your feedback Deb. It's nice to know that EZ Snap Shades are keeping your RV cooler.
The EZ Snap system was extremely easy to install. The directions provided were clear and the kit had everything that was needed for installation.
This kit is being used to stop window reflection that is melting the neighbors siding and has the great benefits of blocking UV/heat.
EZ Snap® Team - Thanks for positive review Paul.
We have two small dogs that camp with us. We want to let them have some freedom when we sit outside but we don’t want to worry about them getting loose and running away.
We put EZSNAP skirting on the passenger side of the coach, including under where the stairs are. We used the standard fasteners supplied by EZSNAP.
We then made an enclosure using exercise dog pens. The dogs sometimes get too interested in passers-by, so we cover the exercise pen enclosure using more skirting. We fold the skirting over the top of the fence and fasten it with Velcro supplied by EZSNAP.
We even included access to a gate.
We can adjust the shape to fit the conditions of the campground site we are at.
Overall this makes a neat, attractive, safe, secure enclosure for our furry companions.
Pam & Bill
EZ Snap® Team - Great idea Pam & Bill... thanks for sharing your idea and photo!
Our boat looks so much cleaner and definitely keeps it cooler.
We will be recommending this to everyone we know.
EZ Snap® Team - Thanks for positive review and photo Chris. Perfect installation, nice work!
We didn't want to install screws I to our camper, so the 3M adhesive snaps were a great alternative.
The shades as well as the snaps are of excellent quality.
Easy to install. Looks great.
Kept camper noticeably cooler. Stands up to hot Arizona temps and wind!
EZ Snap® Team - Thanks for positive review Kathy. Happy to hear that EZ Snap RV Shades are keeping you cooler in the Arizona sunshine!
I recently purchased, and finally installed my EZ Snap window covering.
It was easy to install and looks better than I imagined.
Hopefully, it will do the job of reducing window glare and save my outdoor plants!
EZ Snap® Team - Thanks for reporting back John. Your plants will love you for installing EZ Snap shades to block the reflection from the sun!
My 2018 Keystone Cougar 5th wheel trailer has a number of windows. This gives wonderful views and permits massive amounts of heat to build inside the unit. EZ Snap provides an effective and affordable solution while maintaining the view.
I ordered my kit and it was shipped within 24 hours. Read carefully the tips then reread the tips. The mesh is easy to cut using the provided tool. Order plenty of the 3M Primer if you are using the adhesive studs. Take your time attaching the mesh to the studs as this step is crucial to achieving a smooth, unwrinkled window covering.
So, in short, EZ Snap does what it says it does. It greatly reduces the amount of sunlight entering the unit while maintaining the ability to see out!
Happy Customer from Texas
EZ Snap® Team - Thanks for the positive review Stephen, we appreciate it.
Here in eastern Nevada, the wind is constant and gusts from 50 to 70mph regularly. The sun can be brutal, and we live on a golf course, perfectly distanced 120 yards from a tee box. Golf balls have taken 6 windows in the last two years. At $180 per window, your product showed promise.
I have enclosed pictures of the installation and finished look.
Installation of your product was perfect, the pins and screen have been super durable and look great. The wind hardly affects the screens, they block the heat wonderfully, and golf balls are stopped dead with no damage to the screens or windows.
Thank you and wish you more well deserved success with your product.
EZ Snap® Team - Great installation Doug! Thanks for the photos and endorsement... We get a lot of requests for golf ball protection shades and your photos will be very useful for other customers with stucco homes on golf courses.
I purchased the EZ snap system to cover the windows on my Bayliner 4788. They are large windows... the windshield is 5x12 and 2 side windows are 3x12. There are also 9 other windows from 2x3 to 2x6.
The day I decided to install the screens I had a Boat mechanic working doing the annual oil changes. When I started doing the windows the Mechanic thought I was crazy taking on a job like this by myself but I wasn’t discouraged.
4 hours later all the windows were done and trimmed to look like a professional installation. I can’t tell you how easy it was.
I used all versions of the snaps, some were the stick on some were the screw on and some were already existing.
The mechanic was amazed, so much so that he took the info to buy a kit for his boat.
The next day we took the boat with friends to Catalina Island, doing from 10-20 Knots with the window coverings on and it performed flawlessly.
The pictures show the front screen upon arrival in Catalina. The visibility through the screen, and the light it lets into the salon.
I figure it saved me 75% over having an upholstery shop make the covers and the quality is just as good. So if you work as hard for your money as I do, this system is a No Brainer.
EZ Snap® Team - Thanks for the photos and review Bud. It's nice to know that EZ Snap Shades are keeping your boat cooler while navigating around Catalina Island!
The product was easy to install on standard 3x5 foot windows. I found EZ Snap after looking for something to protect a newly installed artificial turf from reflections from the windows.
The most time consuming part was the prep and cleaning for the adhesive. The actual install was very fast.
It's only been a few weeks, but I would recommend these to anyone.
EZ Snap® Team - Thanks for the recommendation David...
This is my second purchase of EZ Snap shades. The product provides not only heat reduction but privacy throughout the day.
Very simple to install and so far all the shades are holding up great.
My neighbors were very curious about the product as they are looking into purchasing some shades for their new home.
Highly recommend this quality product for anyone looking to save money on AC bills. I feel that we are better prepared for another Arizona summer as temps tend to rise in the upper 100s.
EZ Snap® Team - Thanks for your repeat business and positive review Josh... we appreciate it!
Great product. Used it to weigh down the RV 5th wheel front skirt. Allowed it to be adjusted due to ground/terrain.
Took about 15 mins to install and adjust on the 3 sides of the skirt.
They’ve been installed 4 about 3 weeks and are holding well through a few windstorms. I will repurchase when needed.
EZ Snap® Team - Thanks for letting us know that the EZ Snap Pipe Clamps are working well for you Curt.
Troy has been SO wonderful to deal with regarding our skirting, very helpful and patient.
My husband works on the road during the summer season and I travel with him, so all of our correspondence was done remotely.
The ease of cutting to fit and attaching the snaps was great! And it's so simple to detach and re-attach.
We have had numerous people stop to ask about the skirting and we make sure to direct them to EZ Snap.
Thanks again, Troy, and to the entire EZ Snap team.
We couldn't be happier!!
EZ Snap® Team - Thanks Elaine... happy to help out. Nice to hear EZ Snap Skirting is working well for you!
Everything went on as advertised and after two weeks of installation is performing wonderfully at keeping out wind and drafts.
EZ Snap® Team - Thanks for reporting back Nancy.
Great product! Quality materials with easy instructions.
The video they provide on the EZ Snap site made installation VERY easy. My husband and I are seniors and we had no problems installing EZ Snap on our 5th wheel trailer.
We just inclosed our largest slide out to provide storage space that looks great. We used EZ Snap on the outside and insulation foam panels on the backside of the box we created, next to the tires. We added No Residue tape along the top outside edge for an extra seal to keep the rain out.
We get a lot here in Oregon and it works great. We used the 20 ft. kit. The total cost was about $260.
EZ Snap® Team - Thanks for your photo and review Mary... looks great!
I bought the easy snap skirting for our 43 foot Montana High Country 380 TH.
For layout we used a carpenter chalk line and snapped a line all around the trailer where we wanted the top to be.
We then screwed the snaps on at 10” spacing... a few more at corners and transitions. When installing skirting we left it full height until all snaps were on then went back and cut excess off the top around storage doors,heater outlet, and front and back drops keeping the bottom of skirting all the same length.
To secure the bottom we built a frame out of 3/4 pvc pipe folding excess under and secured with Easy Snap RV pipe clamps.
We made it 3 pieces on ours starting just behind the entryway going around the back to the kitchen slide, the only slide we had to deal with as the other 3 are higher up.
We then skipped to the front of the slide and went around the front back to the entryway again.
For the stairs we folded our stairs up and installed the skirting over them then cut the one side just enough to get steps out, unsnapped the top unfolded the steps, ran the flap up behind and re-snapped it along bottom of door and used the Gecko Velcro to close it all in.
We then skirted the slide out separately and attached it on either end with Velcro.
We did not skirt the 5th wheel piece as it was too cold for the adhesive snaps and I didn’t want to drill holes into the fiberglass front. All other snaps screwed into steel or tin.
I had to cut a hole for dump valve access and built a door using a piece of scrap and Velcro.
We did not cut anything for the sewer hose as it’s cold here now so I hooked hoses to dump ports on camper and just lifted up pvc and connected to sewer dump when tanks were full to avoid freezing.
Two of us installed it all in about 4 1/2 hrs.
We noticed the difference the first night!
Our propane usage went from a 40 lb bottle every 3 days to one every 5-6 days with low 30’s in day and 5-10 at night. We put a small electric heater underneath to keep it 25-30 under the RV.
We are very pleased with the Easy Snap skirting, fairly easy to install and about 1/2 the price of the professional quote we got! It looks nice, works well, and stood up to some 20,30 and a few 40mph winds and blowing snow with no issues.
Would definitely recommend it to others and will use it again if we replace our current Montana.
I would recommend purchasing a few more snaps as we had just enough even with getting an extra 25, it was cold out and we broke a few of ours pushing skirting onto the studs.
Thanks for your excellent products.
Roy & Danette, Montrose Colorado
EZ Snap® Team - Thank you for the great photos and review Roy & Danette. We are very happy to hear that EZ Snap is keeping your RV warmer in Montrose Colorado!
EZ Snap® Team - Thanks Scott
We purchased the easy snap Skirting because we are full-time RVers in the state of Pennsylvania where it’s a lot of snow and cold temperatures.
It was recommended to install the snaps at temperatures 50° or above so we had it ordered and shipped to our vacation spot in Florida to be able to accommodate the recommended temperatures for attaching the snaps.
Everything arrived on schedule and very well packaged.
Installing the snaps and using the guide tool for the correct distancing between them was very helpful. It worked like a charm!
When we got back to Pa we purchased the pvc piping and installed the skirting around our 5th wheel. It took time to get it installed but well with it!
The temps below the underbelly have stayed above freezing and we only use a small space heater there to help with the freezing temps. Our heated underbelly has stayed 10 degrees higher than it used to.
We now have covered storage as well which truly helps when you’re full time.
We would highly recommend EZSnap for your skirting needs.
We Are Very Satisfied!
Fred and Doris
EZ Snap® Team - Thank you Fred and Doris for your review and photo.
Application was to cover some SW facing windows in an upstairs air conditioned storage room / art room.
Just got the shades installed this week. Online instructions were useful and everything went to plan.
No blazing hot days yet, but I'm expecting good results.
Suggestion #1: Related to the planning tool. Maybe I missed it but I don't think so... The planing tool should calculate the required number of snaps, perhaps based on both minimum (10" spacing) as well as maximum (5" spacing) numbers required. This could assist in ensuring sufficient quantity of snaps are ordered. I cut mine too close. I would have installed more if I had them (9" spacing + 2 at corners).
Suggestion #2: I ordered 2 adhesive pens. I did one window, then moved the ladder over to do the other 2. By the time I got to the other 2, the liquid in the pen had evaporated, and I did not dilly-dally. You might want to give folks some guidance on how long the liquid will be available once opened. If you did this, I didn't see it anywhere.
Packaging comment: Both ends of the box had ripped tape. I was lucky the snaps had not fallen out. Perhaps you should tape it to the inside of the box to ensure it doesn't slide out???
I think I'll be very happy with it. More windows possible depending on how we like it this summer.
EZ Snap® Team - Thanks for your feedback and photo Mike. For other customers reading this review... The Kit Size Calculator recommends the number of fasteners with appropriate spacing for different sized windows. Smaller windows at 10" and larger windows at 5" spacing. It is possible to adjust the spacing and re-calculate the numbers, if desired. 3M Primer Pens do dry out very quickly. We do our best to let customers know, in the instructions and when speaking directly.During shipping, we always seal all of the parts and instructions in one long package so they do not fall out without UPS noticing. Sorry to hear the box ends had opened, but happy to hear that all of the parts made the journey.We appreciate your suggestions and hope that posting them here will help us get the word out to more customers.
It has been a few months since I purchased my ez snap blind for my RV. I have been waiting for some warmer weather. Installation was quite simple. I cleaned the surfaces with alcohol. Then applied the buttons. Trying to apply 15 lbs of pressure to each. I did 7" spacing on top and bottom of window. 10" spacing on the sides (only three each on sides of window).
I cut the fabric to the size needed. I waited three days to finish the install. Put the fabric over the spikes making sure I did not put excessive strain on the spikes. Put on the final pieces of the snaps and trimmed three of the corners to match the radius of the window frame.
I purposely left the bottom right corner square so it would be easier to figure out which way is up when I use the screen in the field. My only problem is that the snap pieces have little tits on them from the manufacturing process. Watch it, because they are sharp and puncture finger tips quite easily. Leading to a clean up of your blood off the RV side.
I highly recommend this product. We thought of a rolling shade at first, but it would have greatly limited our view out the window during the day. Our goal was to have a shade in place that would permit us to leave the inside blind up and still see outside during the day. All the while blocking out the direct sunlight from penetrating into the RV cabin.
Now we can leave things on the dining table and don't have to worry about sun damage to them.
Installed on 61" x 31" dining area window. 2017 Fourwinds 23u
EZ Snap® Team - Thanks for the great review Jay.
We chose EZ-Snap Skirting for several reasons including quick availability, DIY ability, overall quality, portability, and price. It was the best solution for our particular needs - based on our full-time living with quarterly work-related travel to new locations.
Our fifth wheel is smaller (32ft) with limited storage and while custom skirting has professional fit and finish, the higher cost, and greater bulk does not meet our needs. Time was of the essence in our situation and customer service with EZ Snap was very helpful in answering general and shipping questions on the phone. So we ordered while located in Portland, OR, in preparation for moving to Idaho in January. We received our skirting literally two days later!
We got the 80’ kit because our detailed measurements said we only needed 78’ and that worked well. Because we were installing in winter, we purchased the combo screw/adhesive snap bases. To encourage adhesion in cold temperatures, we used a hair dryer to pre-warm the mounting spots. I also pre-cut our PVC pipe for our base in advance for a quick install upon arrival in ID.
Unfortunately, we had no good place to lay out the fabric on our uneven gravel site. Vertically unrolling the 60” wide fabric along the trailer sides, while mounting snaps in place was a bit awkward, but not that difficult with two people. Measuring and cutting the slots around stairs and bumper/hitch mounts took more planning and time than doing the main mounting.
I had some concerns about the strength of the plastic snap pins, and we did bend/break a few as the fabric is difficult to puncture through. (Which is a good thing.) I used an empty multi-bit screwdriver to give firm grip while pushing the fabric over the plastic pins and that worked handily. And while the included snaps/pins were enough for my original plans, I did order 20 extra and ended up using most all of them for reinforcing certain areas.
We also planned 3 Velcro taped overlap areas to break up the length into three manageable sections and provide entry points. I was concerned about the tape adhesive not sticking well when applied in freezing temperatures (not recommended) but so far, they have held fine under limited use.
Of course there is no outer edge “hem” in this design, so we followed Ray’s example (Love Your RV – great video installation) and later added 3M residue free tape to seal the top edge to prevent water from flowing down trailer wall and pooling on the inside skirting.
Immediately after installation, the EZ Snap skirting was tested by 45 mph winds. All snaps held (even before our taping), but our base PVC piping frame did shift some and required some re-connection of a few pipes and fabric clamps. Still, we were very happy with the system passing this high wind test. At that time, we only had 5 – 15# blocks for weight and have since added 5 more.
Thankfully our forecast single digits have not manifested, staying above 20 F instead. Even so, it is nice to have the peace of mind from being prepared and knowing our plumbing system is better protected. Furthermore, the wind here is incessant, so we appreciate that it is now blocked and the floors are warmer and clearly the furnace runs much less – saving money.
For our needs, the EZ Snap system worked very well. It was affordable, relatively “EZ” to install, and very portable for future times if we need to winter in colder climates again.
EZ Snap® Team - Thanks for your detailed review Steve. We're happy to hear that EZ Snap worked well for you.
I have owned several different travel trailers over the past 20 years. Up until this year (2021) we had only camped from March through November. The beginning and ending of our normal camping seasons were limited to Indiana where the weather can sometimes be mild. We have had to postpone some camping trips due to colder weather but that rarely happened. We’ve even camped when it snowed for a short period of time. In other words, we might be considered “Fair Weather Campers” to those who camp year round.
This year we purchased a 2021 Zinger travel trailer to vacation in for a few months while in Nevada. During our preparation, someone had informed me that it can get pretty cold at night in some parts of Nevada. After checking the local weather it became apparent that I had not done my research. I started watching online videos and reading forums about camping in cold weather. There were lots of ideas to chose from but the one option that was mentioned in every one was the need for skirting around the perimeter of the trailer.
There are several manufacturers out there making RV skirting but EZ Snap was the only one that offered a complete package. Others I looked at seemed cumbersome and were not as aesthetically pleasing. I was also under a two week time constraint to prepare the camper before heading west. I reviewed their packages and made my selection. Delivery time was estimated around a week but I needed it sooner. I called EZ Snap and received a gentleman who spoke to me as if we lived in the same town. He not only made arrangements to expedite my order but also mentioned to me that I might have forgotten some material. Since I had never installed skirting before, he explained to me in detail on how to install it along with the PVC frame that sits on the ground. He truly cared about the product he was selling and had extensive knowledge on how to install it.
Installation of the skirting took (3) people approximately (4) hours to install on a 30ft travel trailer. This included not only the skirting material but the PVC fame as well. I would recommend to anyone that you have at least three people to help measure the skirting and install the snaps. We were able to design skirting for our particular travel trailer (with slide out) that consisted in two solid pieces.
Attached are pictures of the results. I didn’t want to take pictures of the other travel trailers in the RV park out of respect; however I will tell you we had the best looking skirting in the area. That even includes several luxurious motorhomes. I have recommended this product to several of my camping families and would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone else. I would be willing to talk to anyone who was considering the purchase of RV skirting and recommend they chose EZ Snap for the ease of installation AND the final appearance!
Battle Ground, Indiana
EZ Snap® Team - Thanks for the positive review and photos Ron. Very nice installation... the Zinger looks awesome!
I absolutely love the EZ Snap.
Installed it with no problems and it has helped so much keeping my RV warmer.
I definitely will and have been telling others about it.
Thank you for a great product.
EZ Snap® Team - Thanks for the kind words Lynne.
We installed our ...hitch enclosure we purchased from you. We noticed an immediate difference in the interior warmth.
My husband put a thermometer under the hitch, and the enclosure is keeping it 10-15 degrees warmer than the outside air temperature...
We are very happy with the installation so far.
Thank you, Priscilla Ricci
EZ Snap® Team - Thanks for the update Priscilla!
I have a 2007 Forest River Cardinal that myself and my husband full time in for the last 14 years.
At our site in central Florida the back window gets sun for the entire day. And the heat was terrible over the years. Faded my carpet awful.
Decided to fix the problem. I hate reflextix. I wanted to still see out. So I googled exterior window cover. First page that came up is ezsnaps.
Placed the order and it arrived super quick. Immediately installed. It was super ez to install... The instructions were fantastic, the cutter worked amazing, the look is perfect and beautiful. Took less than an hour to install.
I could not be happier with this product. My only complaint is I should have done this year's ago. I will continue to cover more windows as finances presents.
Absolutely product of the year!!!
Thanks for making magic EzSnaps.
EZ Snap® Team - Thanks for your great review Allison. It's great to hear that EZ Snap Shades are keeping you cooler in Florida!
This was the easiest thing for me to do at age 63 years old and a single woman who has to do everything myself.
I am so glad I found your company. They are on my motorhome and are doing great.
I live in Kansas where the winds get up to 55 miles and hour. These snaps are staying put and my skirting is not coming off like last winter.
Thanks for making a good product.
EZ Snap® Team - Thanks Jeanie... it's nice to know that EZ Snap is working well for you in Kansas!
EZ-Snap Window shades are a lifesaver! The Arizona heat is impossible to escape but these new window shades have cooled down our home dramatically. They are simple to install and great quality! I was impressed how sticky the adhesive caps were and how much the UV mesh helped with the glare. Applying these shades is a much cheaper alternative than replacing all existing mesh on metal screens. This is an investment that is affordable to just about anyone. After the savings on the AC bill, plan to break even quicker than you anticipate!
EZ Snap® Team - Happy to hear EZ Snap is keeping you cool in Arizona. Thanks for the review.
I received the EZ Snap skirting kit and I'm very pleased with it. I was a bit overwhelmed at first but after I watched the video a few times I was excited to get it on.
The very first night the temperature dropped down and usually my heater comes on a few times but it didn't. I was really shocked and very pleased with it.
Yes I will be recommending it to all that ask about it.
Thank you Troy for all of your help and guidance.
EZ Snap® Team - Thanks for the positive review Lynne... we are always happy to help.
I ordered this shade to cover the back window of a travel trailer. The window is 6’x4’. Installation was easy and it looks great. I’m a 61 year old woman and installed it myself. I immediately felt the difference inside. My only concern, will the 3m bases hold up to the extreme heat in FL. I emailed the customer service team and they ensured me that they will hold up. I certainly hope so. Remains to be seen. I have already recommended this product.
EZ Snap® Team - Thanks Sandy. Rest assured, that EZ Snap and 3M have created a tested and proven Fastener that can withstand extreme hot and cold weather.
...The hardware I ordered from ez snap I believe won't be going anywhere as it uses very strong 3m adhesive to attach to the rv exterior as well as screws through the middle. The attachment hardware on the project was not something I wanted to skimp out on and try to go out and "find" myself as it would probably fail after a season of winter.
Very happy with ez-snap’s roll in this…
EZ Snap® Team - Thanks Bryant
I have used my new EZ Snap Skirt for 10 days in snow country so far. The night time temperatures were in the single digits and teens at night. It’s amazing how much warmer this skirt keeps the area under my trailer. For the first few nights I used an auxiliary heater inside the skirt, but soon learned that was not necessary.
The skirt fabric is very durable, has not frozen or become brittle, and the supplied adhesive Velcro is incredible. Once on, no worries about the Velcro coming off. I love it for making openings in the skirt to stash skis or other items under the trailer.
My only displeasure with using this skirt is the snap system. When it is cold these are difficult to snap on and they do come apart quite easily. Make sure you order extra snap assemblies. I would like to see a better snap system.
All things considered, this shirt is totally functional and made of high quality materials. I am completely satisfied with my purchase and highly recommend it.

WOW, that is how I felt when we received our order of the EZ Snap product.
1st off you immediately notice the quality of the skirting material, very strong and feels nice and smooth on the one side making it easier to clean off.
Next we pulled out the snaps. We decided not to screw in anywhere on our Fuzion 44' 5th wheel toy hauler so we requested all the hardware with the 3m sticky tape ( I ordered 25 extra of everything and I think 50 would have been better. I do have extra left over of everything but I like to have too much when it comes to something like this).
At this point we had a dilemma as we needed to install immediately as the temps outside were dropping below 30 degrees. We were lucky enough to have access to a temperature controlled shop big enough for us to get into and we applied our snaps.
The template worked perfectly for us in spacing and applying the primer and we were able to get the snaps on completely in about 5 to 6 hours.
We then began to Hang and cut the skirting which went on without a hitch.
I was a bit worried about how well the snaps would stick but after 3 months in temps ranging from -17 to 30 degrees it held tight and did the job I had bought it to do.
When we removed the skirting to head to our next destination it came off very nicely.
I am very satisfied with my purchase and would recommend this product to anyone and everyone.
EZ Snap® Team - Thanks Jason... Great to hear that EZ Snap worked well for your Toy Hauler.
I ordered the EZ Snap skirting for my 5th wheel along with the 5th wheel enclosure.
It was fairly easy to install the only snag that I ran into was that I ordered the combo adhesive/screw on snaps and ended up only using the adhesive snaps so I had to order more snaps install the 5th wheel enclosure - be sure to order lots of extras to start with and save the cost of an additional order!!
I chose not to trim the bottom in case next time I park the ground is uneven and requires the extra length.
I also chose not to buy the clips for the bottom - I probably will buy those next time I move the RV and set it up somewhere else.
It definitely helps keep the inside of the RV warmer and I don't worry about my holding tanks freezing.
This is my first time to own an RV on my own and knew that I would need skirting while living and working in my RV in Eastern Kentucky this winter.
When I had to remove the skirt for some repairs to my RV it was extremely easy to re-install! A tip for removing is to remove the part that snaps on and the cap - just leave the base on the RV - I found this out the hard way!
It took me less than 20 minutes by myself to reinstall on my 30 foot trailer (and I'm a 60 year old woman).
Thank you EZ Snap for such an amazing product.
EZ Snap® Team - Thanks for the photos and great review Sharon.
After watching the install video I decided that EZ Snap was the choice for me. Cost comparisons to other skirting kits that were $2-3000 were just not acceptable.
My kit arrived EARLIER than expected which was the first bonus.
I was able to install it by myself though two people would have been easier, it really wasn't that difficult by myself.
With plenty of hardware included in my purchase (their estimation was spot on to provide proper attachment and still have a few leftovers), I was able to install the snaps with a standard screw gun/drill, and then trim around openings and panels with a basic razor knife.
Their online estimator tool for kit sizing was spot on also - I had plenty of material and minimal waste.
Having tested the skirting kit in below 0 temperatures this winter in Colorado, I can certainly attest to the durability and function.
I am very happy with my decision to go with EZ Snap and would definitely recommend this product to anyone.
Thank you EZ Snap... Darren Stukes
