EZ Snap Reviews & Testimonials
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”
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 pummeled 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!
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!
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.
Tom F.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.Debbie A
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!Kristen Fleury
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!
Emilee M. Hoff
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,Marsha ClarkWilliamsport PA
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!
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.Nick
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, Bob R.
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 notHelp 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.
First, the customer service provided was excellent.
I accidentally found this product one week before we were to leave for the desert for three months, so I called and asked if it was going to be possible to get it in time. My order was processed that evening and very quickly shipped. I received it two days before leaving on our trip!
We got it installed easy enough. I would say you need two people to install, when doing a large piece like the full RV windshield. (I rounded the corners off when cutting the screen. I think it looks much better that way.)
The hardest part was deciding exactly where I wanted to stick the snaps.
Our campsite was situated where the windshield never got full sun so I cannot speak to how well it keeps the heat out yet.
It did keep passing campers from seeing inside the RV which allowed us to keep the curtains open all day.
I would add that we had some very strong wind gusts, lots of rain, big temperature difference and the snaps and shade screen stayed on!
We are very pleased with our purchase.
EZ Snap™ Team - Great to hear! Thanks Staphanie.
Purchased product by phoning in my order, speaking with Tony. During this conversation, never knew this company was located in Canada. Discovered when I received my credit card charges where a Foreign Fees was added to my order. With speaking with Tony, never a mention of a "return/refund policy". Upon inspection of my receipt sent via email, no mention of said return/refund policy. Having made thousands of purchases during the years, if there was to be a restocking fee upon a refund/return, buyer was always made a aware and it was noted on sales receipt. Not the case with this company. When I emailed and called, which it took 3 days to respond from my email, I had to call back as I never received a call back, I was informed of this policy. What a way to do business. This is so shaddy to add that in after the purchase. I had to pay which I am delighted to do so to return this product. Then told to state a value of only $5.00 on the Customs Form by Tony. When in fact the value was a whole lot more than $5.00. I would stay stay away from this company. Go else where to purchase a RV Sun Shade. A business that must lie and hide the facts is not one in which I wish to give my hard earned money too. Of course, had to give one star as there was no selection for "zero stars". Now the real test of time, will this review be removed by Tony?
EZ Snap® Team - Sorry that you feel this way Ray. We pride ourselves on top-notch customer service and regularly receive positive reviews from our happy customers.
We will try to address the concerns you mentioned in your review.
It was Troy who you had been corresponding and talking to on the phone. (There is no Tony here). EZ Snap has warehouses in Canada and the USA and Troy is located in our call center in BC Canada.
Regarding the foreign fees on your card, your card company should not be charging you fees like that, and the majority of cards do not charge this type of transaction fee.
Our Return Policy is clearly posted on our website here: https://ezsnapdirect.com/support/ There is a link to this page with the return policy on all the pages of our site.
We reviewed our records of your contact with us. You called outside of our office hours when the office was closed. At the very latest, our staff responds to emails within 48 hours and phone messages within 24 hours, not including weekends of course, when we are closed. Having said that; had you called during business hours, our toll-free line always has a customer service rep ready to take your call.
Restocking charges on large, heavy items are common for most online retailers. Without restocking charges, other customers would have to pick up the tab, by way of higher prices, for those customers who change their minds. In your correspondence to us, you mentioned that you changed your mind on your purchase.
Here's what you said to us in your email: “After receiving the product, decided that it was not what we wanted, way too much work to install given the number of windows that we have on the toyhauler and had to wait until at least 60 degrees constant which means that as of this writing I could still not have installed”.
As mentioned previously, a restocking charge is designed to keep costs as low as possible for all of our customers. Each kit is custom built to order and includes a wide range of materials and hardware that is assembled, packaged, and shipped within 48 hours of purchase.
We hope you can appreciate that restocking charges are there for the benefit of all customers. Please know that product returns cost EZ Snap more than our restocking charges generate.
You mentioned that you had issue with our support team recommending putting a value of $5.00 on your return shipment, even though the value of the shipment was obviously more. Although we have explained this to you in past conversations, we will go over this point again for the benefit of those reading this.
The reason we suggest putting a value on your return shipment of $5.00 dollars is this: All courier forms are different and we have had customers incorrectly fill out their shipping documents in the past. They have placed the initial purchase price of the item on the form in such a way that customs has billed the shipment as if the customer was selling the item back to EZ Snap. When a return is done this way, sales taxes, duties, and brokerage charges are applied on the full initial purchase price. This can greatly increase the cost of returning shipments, as returns are supposed to be exempt from these fees. The $5.00 value eliminates the chance of this happening, thus saving our customers an extra cost that should not apply on returned shipments.
Our goal is to have satisfied customers using EZ Snap products to save energy and improve the comfort of their living spaces. We are hopeful that you now have a better understanding on the concerns you had.
We had an unusually hot 2016 summer even for Phoenix AZ.
The inside of the RV felt much cooler and was easier for AC to keep up. I am very happy that I purchased the RV window shades.
I am an elderly solo-full timer and I had no problems installing the screens.
EZ Snap™ Team - Thank you for taking the time to review EZ Snap. Happy to hear that our Shade Screens made a difference in your RV.
We purchased the 25' window shade kit with white 3M adhesive stud in May, 2015 so have used the windows shades for two summers now. They have proven to be effective in reducing the heat generated by the mid and late afternoon sun in our seven west facing windows. Without the shades, even with our lo-e windows you could feel the heat on the inside of the glass but with the shades in place the glass is cool to the touch. We now live in Campbell River on Vancouver Island, BC however we should have had these on our home in the Okanagan as well where we lived for 20+ years.
Installation was straightforward. The shade material is easy to cut to size and the adhesive studs definitely stick. Removing the shade for winter storage you exert some force on the studs and none of them budge. Two summers of 30 C+ and two winters of some sub-zero temperatures and they remain in place. We store the shades in winter by labelling which window they come off and mark the lower right corner with masking tape making it easy to reinstall the following summer (we remove the masking tape on installation). For winter storage we stack the shades and roll them on the cardboard roll the shade was shipped on, wrap the whole thing in plastic and store in our heated crawl space.
As an added bonus the shades provide daytime privacy into our living areas without having to close or tip blinds so we can still enjoy the view into our backyard.
We are very pleased with our purchase and would recommend the product as an easy do-it-yourself project for anyone looking to reduce the sun's heat on their windows, with the added benefit of daytime privacy and preserving views.
EZ Snap™ Team - Thanks for your great review Julie. Glad to hear that your EZ Snap Shades are working for you.
This product was very easy to install.
Instructions were easy to follow.
Product has the feel of a durable quality material.

Dear EZ Snap Direct team,
I want to tell you how happy I am with my RV skirting. I purchased the product from EZSNAPDirect.com.
The EZ Snap kit included enough extras so I have more fasteners if I ever need to fix an air pocket or correct any area that may need!
I am already warmer in the cold temperatures. I feel the energy savings are already adding up!
The installation was done by myself and thank you for your how to do it videos as they offered many insights. I would recommend EZ Snap to anyone!
Here's a video of the skirting after installation:
EZ Snap™ Team - Thanks for the video Rick! Looking great. Glad you like your new skirting.
I purchased my EZ Snap trailer skirt and was surprised with how easy it was to install it.
Living in Northern Alberta, Canada where winters are very cold, I needed a durable product that could stand up to our tough weather.
Someone recommended ez snap and when I looked at the website I was amazed at the prices as it was less than half of what I would pay to have someone local make a skirt for me.
Ordering and shipping was easy and I received it within the week.
At first I was worried about installing the skirt on my own as I have a very bad shoulder, but applying the snaps was as easy as sticking a sticker and then pushing the pin through the skirt and putting the cap on were very simple and much easier than I ever imagined. EZ Snap provides very clear, easy to follow steps.
I was able to customize the skirt and cut away around my door and outside cupboards and there is no fraying where the skirt is cut.
The skirt and snaps held up through a very cold winter with some severe wind storms and even then no snaps pulled off!
I'm amazed at how well the skirt has insulated my trailer and as soon as it was installed my propane usage for heating was nearly cut in half as no heat was escaping through the floor as it did before.
I recommend EZ Snap to anyone that asks me how to live long term in a travel trailer and would I need anything else I would definitely go through ez snap. Thank you for such an amazing product.
EZ Snap™ Team - Great to hear. Thanks for your review.
We live in Santa Fe, NM, at an elevation of 7500 feet—very close to the sun!
Our Pueblo-style, double-wall adobe house has a flat roof, and 15 skylights. What it doesn’t have is air-conditioning! In the summer, our house gets very warm, as you might imagine.
After living with the problem for a few years, we finally got desperate! We bought some shade screening at Home Depot, and cut it to fit over each of the skylights. Originally we used bricks to anchor the loose netting to the roof, but it was damaging the roof so we needed another solution.
After reading about your product online, we decided to give it a try—what did we have to lose?! We used your products (the EZ snaps) on the metal frames of the skylights, about 12” apart, and then stretched the screening and anchored it onto the snaps.
This system has worked perfectly for several years, and my husband continues to be impressed at my resourcefulness!
It is so easy to remove the screening in the late fall, and reattach it in the spring—your product makes our home so much more comfortable, I can’t imagine being without EZ Snaps!
EZ Snap™ Team - Happy to hear about your success. Thanks for your feedback.
Very pleased with this product.
Thank you for following up with a phone call it is nice to do business with a company that cares.
Adding the extra snaps made a huge difference. Five inches much better than ten.
I have had several people comment how nice it looks.
Terry L. Keen CMSP
EZ Snap™ Team - Looking great Terry! Thanks for the photos.
I wanted to write you and thank you again for the fantastic RV skirting. You were a pleasure to work with.
I was able to install the skirting myself in half a day using the adhesive mounts. I found the material to be easy to work with and I had no issues, even though I had no experience installing RV skirting.
I have now spent almost two months in Jackson, Wyoming winter and it's great! We have had the "snowiest" December in 40 years here and thanks to EZ Snap RV skirting I'm cozy and warm in my 38ft class A Motorhome. I have seen temperatures down to -15 Fahrenheit and have not had any issues with freezing.
My neighbors have high end custom skirting that cost triple what I paid through EZ Snap Direct. You guys are awesome! Thanks for helping me survive the Wyoming Winter!
Thanks so much! Bryce
EZ Snap™ Team - Thanks Bryce... nice installation. Glad it's working for you!
The skirting is excellent quality. However, the video is misleading--installation is much more challenging than it appears. It took two men a full 8 hours to install. I do recommend the product but caution buyers that installation is very challenging.
Hello Ms. Hunt,
Thanks for your feedback.
We appreciate hearing about our customers’ experiences with EZ Snap since it provides an opportunity for us to help with installation issues and find ways to improve our products.
Sorry to hear that you were surprised by how challenging the skirting installation was. We have not had this kind of feedback before, rather the opposite.
I’m sure you’ll agree that the ‘How To Install RV Skirting’ video is quite detailed and provides thorough instructions. We are also available for guidance and problem solving by email and toll-free phone.
Every skirting project is different, but we find that a typical install runs from 4 to 8 hours depending how complex you want to make your finished product.
If possible, please email us a few photos of your installation. We may be able to learn more about your unique situation.

I have 3 large windows in my 5th wheel. These were my primary concern and reason for buying the EZ Snap product. Michigan in the summer, Florida in the winter.
The air conditioner struggled to cool the coach to a comfortable degree on hot days.
No problem since I installed the screens, which was very easy. I removed them prior to a move in about 5 minutes. The reinstall at the new location took even less time.
I absolutely could not be more pleased.
My large windows have crank out louvers on the bottom about 8 inches high. I stopped my fasteners a little above the louvers and they don't flap even in high winds. I would be happy to send anyone pictures if they would like to see what they look like.
Just finished installing my Sun Shades on my two sky lights and I can't say enough good things about them.
I am really picky when it comes to products I use on my home. This product is fantastic.
Installation was very simple and the improvement was immediate. No more heat build up coming through my sky lights yet I can see through them just as the product advertised.
Can't wait to spread the word.
EZ Snap™ Team - Great feedback Ken. We appreciate your support.
Only thing good I can say about the product was customer service. I had planned on purchasing skirting for the rest of my trailer but after installing the skirting around the 5th wheel section no way. After installing the skirting with the pvc clamps and additional support with concrete pavers to hold the bottom in place a storm blew through with light winds (15-20 mph). Afterwords I went under neath my 5th wheel section and easily half of the snaps had failed, some of them failed due to the snap itself not holding but most failed due to the cap that holds the skirt onto the pin. They just don't stay on. Now I have to worry about the next time my neighbors Yorkie passes gas.
Hello Mr. Davis,
Thanks for your feedback.
We appreciate hearing about our customers’ experiences with EZ Snap since it provides an opportunity for us to help with installation issues and find ways to improve our products.
Our goal is always to keep our customers happy and we would like to work with you to fix your issues and get your enclosure kit working for you.
It is rare that 5th wheel owners skirt only the hitch area, leaving the rest of the 5th wheel open. WE ADVISE STRONGLY AGAINST IT.
When our skirting is installed this way, wind goes under the RV and gets trapped in behind the Hitch Enclosure Kit. Due to the parachute-like shape of the enclosure kit, there’s nowhere for the wind to escape. This places excess force on the fasteners.
It takes a lot of force to rip the 3M fasteners off or to pop the caps off the pins. In your scenario, what tends to happen is 1 or 2 fasteners let go, leaving a flap of RV skirting. As that loose flap whips around, it puts exponential strain on the adjacent fasteners and causes a chain reaction. As each fastener lets go, the flap gets bigger, putting more load on the remaining ones.
To stop this issue from re-occurring, ideally, you need to skirt the remainder of your 5th wheel. If that’s not possible, it is vital for you to seal up the opening between the hitch area and the underside of the main floor of the 5th wheel with skirting or plywood. The goal is to keep the wind out of there.
Please give us an update on your current situation and confirm if you’ve managed to get the hitch enclosure skirting back in place.
If possible, email us a few photos of your installation. We may be able to offer some other tips and advice to help you out.
Note that we do have stainless steel screw studs that can be used in addition to (or instead of) the 3M adhesive fasteners.

This was the best money we spent all summer (if you don’t count my husband’s new boat).EZ Snap screens have made such a significant difference to the second floor. The whole house has benefitted. We really do love them.Thank you EZ Snap!
EZ Snap™ Team - Great feedback, thanks.
I was worried that the 3M studs would not stand up, as I had read some negative reviews on the web about them. The more I researched though, I realized that the negative reviews were all about the product that Coolaroo use to sell.
Apparently, the EZ Snap studs that Coolaroo was selling was a discontinued product and used the original version of the studs.
The new and improved studs are bigger and are made differently.
I have had the studs I bought from EZ Snap installed for over 8 months now and they are all sticking just fine. The studs that EZ Snap sold me are 7/8” across and the old Coolaroo ones are only ¾” in diameter. Make sure that where ever you buy your EZ Snap, that they are the new larger ones.
I used the 3M EZ Snap Studs and shade cloth to cover 2 skylights in the bathroom off our bedroom. The heat reduction has been substantial and the A/C is not coming on near as much.There was hardly any change in the light coming in, in our opinion.I had extra EZ Snap shade cloth and so we decided to cover a large southwest-facing dining room window. (I was able to purchase additional E-Z Snap connectors in the accessories section of the EZ Snap online store.)We are so happy with the results, that we have re-ordered so we can do more windows. I’m now able to keep my blinds open this summer to admire our beautiful view, without so much heat pouring in.
Great product for keeping the sun’s heat out. It has lowered the temperature in both rooms that I put it on.
Great product. Delivered on time by UPS.
This product is what I'd expected. Very easy to install. Thank you.
What a difference! Easy to install and looks great on my windows. I would recommend this to anyone that needs to protect the inside of their home or floors from damaging UV rays in the summer. The adhesive snaps work well on glass or metal, just make sure you wait at least 24 hours for the adhesive to really bite onto the surface, before you install the shade cloth material that comes in the kit.
My husband attached it on the outside of our skylights, my kitchen window and the living room. This helps to alleviate a lot of the extra heat from the intensity of the summer sun. We are very happy with this product. Would very much recommend it to other.
Everything turned out exactly as we hoped. Easy to install and very effective. We allowed the base studs of the snap to set for three days before installing the shades on the exterior windows of our yacht. So far, they have survived a summer in Baltimore, Maryland and an Atlantic Ocean and ICW trip down to St. Petersburg, Florida. If you follow the directions and clean the window and use rubbing alcohol on the area where you will adhere the snap and allow it to cure, all you should be fine.
Trying to find a solution for our skylights....$900 to get the shades with solar remotes seemed too perfect solution, but very high cost.
Came across information about this material that seemed too good to be true....keeps the view and stops the heat before it ever hit the window!
Just put the fabric over the skylight a week ago....the four season room was starting to heat up and the air conditioning could not keep up, since it had no return air in the room.
Very happy to report its doing a great job....and using the snaps made install pretty easy. Will post pics as well if this will let me.
VERY pleased at this point....room is getting light the furniture is not hot in the least...it's all working so far!
We are really happy with the EZ Snap System screen. Our house has a room with a with a very large window facing east. I placed a thermometer in that room through the summer. On sunny days, the thermometer commonly read 30c (86f). This was the reading, even though the air conditioner was running and other rooms in the house were being maintained in the low 20 degrees Celsius.
We made sure all vents were completely open in the room. We first installed interior solar shades and even blackout window blinds. These two items did help some, but the room was still unusable and very hot.We even paid for a HVAC company to do an inspection. They said the insulation, ducting etc was good. The problem was the heat load from the window. This window was only 3 years old and so we thought the only way to fix this would be to replace the window with a smaller one. That solution solution was going to be a huge project, as well as very expensive, as that section of the house has a stone exterior.
Before we downsized the window, I thought I would research one more time and look for a less expensive option. I found the EZ Snap exterior shades and figured for less than $200, it was worth a try, especially compared to the new window, which was going to cost thousands.
THIS SHADE SYSTEM IS FANTASTIC.The shades look good on the house, although I noticed that when I installed them that I put a few wrinkles into the fabric in the corners. Most important though is that they are the functionality and they work. We put the shades up on a hot Summer weekend.
On day 1 (Saturday), before the screens went up, the room was 29 degrees by 10:30 AM.The outside temperature was 25 degrees Celsius.
On day 2 ( Sunday), with the screens up, the room never got warmer than 23 degrees.The outside temperature was also 25 degrees Celsius.
ONE MONTH LATER.Since installing EZ Snap, the thermometer in that room shows the temperature is now remaining the same as the rest of the house. I'm a little shocked every time I walk into the room, as I expect to be hit by a heat wave. Problem Solved.
Love this stuff, made a huge difference in the heat allowed into the house.
56 years and female what a breeze to install. I did it myself. I had just poured US $2,500 into re-insulating my attic and still was not getting relief from our 105 degree temps this year…
“…The package arrived promptly and then I realized I also needed some stick on snaps, they arrived in three days. Total time to cover all my windows on a 2500 square foot patio home, about one day. Instantly my air conditioner is able to get my home to about 75 degrees. It was not breaking 83-85 before and it NEVER turned off.
Best US $400 ever spent, that’s including the special tool to install the screw in caps.
Thank you from Houston, Texas and our hottest summer so far on record.
To EZ Snap Direct, We live in a part of Oregon that gets very hot in the summer. Our home has three big skylights in the living room and this time of year the sun streams right in and heats up the house so much that we could not get the house cooled down…
…even running the air conditioner all day and all night. We got three 6x6 skylight shade kits and installed them easily last weekend. For the first time, it is 98º outside and a cool 75º inside. We are also looking forward to lower electricity bills.
Thanks for an affordable and really effective product.
I love the solar screen and it is really helping with the intense sun coming into my window.Cheers
Hi guys. I spoke to you on the phone last week regarding the EZ Snap shade screens we installed on our windows. Wanted to let you know how pleased we are with the coverings.
We live overlooking Okanagan Lake with our living room, dining room and kitchen windows all all having a southern exposure. We decided to cover all the south and west facing windows with the shade screens. Wow, what a difference it has made to the temperature in our home! In past summers we would normally run the air conditioning from around 11:00 in the morning till later in the evening but since we have had the screens on our windows we have only had the air conditioning on for 2 or 3 days this summer and then only in the later part of the afternoon on the really hot days.
Generally, with the screens installed, it keeps the house temperature at around 25 degrees Celsius (77 F). This is the temperature we would normally have set our air conditioning at! My wife and I figure it has dropped the inside temperature about 4 or 5 degrees. So our house now stays cool, we still enjoy our incredible view, and we hardly use the air conditioning.
Lastly, installation was easy. I had my son help me with the higher windows and we got the windows covered in a day. Its a great product for the hot Okanagan climate, that is effective, easy to install and a cost saver. I would have no problem recommending the screens to my friends.
We are very pleased.
Cath, my wife, is very pleased.
She feels the lower temperature already and likes the view outside.
I like how easy EZ Snap was to install and the temperature reduction.
