Recommend to anyone who wants to cool their RV
EZ Snap Product: RV Shades

We are very pleased with our EZ Snap window shades for our motorhome.

They were easy to install and have made a big difference in the comfort of our motorhome.

The snaps were easy to install and the sunshade material was very easy to mark and cut to shape.

I would recommend them to anyone who wants to cool their rv and wants to install it themselves.

EZ Snap Product: RV Window Shades

I love the screen but the snaps did hold up…

EZ Snap® Team - Thank you for your order and feedback. Installation instructions and spacing between fasteners are very important for 3M Adhesive Snaps.

When using one large kit for numerous windows, it is critical to order extra snaps and install with correct spacing.

During the purchase process, every customer is informed about the importance of calculating the number of fasteners required to install their unique shade project properly.

EZ Snap has even developed custom software to calculate the correct fastener count with ease (Seen here: EZ Kit Size Calculator). This fastener calculator is shown on every shade product page in the online store.

If extra fasteners are required for your project, they can be purchased with your kit at a substantial discount over what you would pay if you chose to order just a few more at a later date, not to mention saving on the additional shipping costs.

Every customer’s project is a little different and the kit size calculator ensures that each customer is ordering the right number of snaps for their project.

15 - 16 degree reduction in heat
EZ Snap Product: RV Window Shades

I had foil covered foam panels on the windows to reduce coach heat, but naturally could not see out.

Came across the EZ Snap product with good reviews so thought I would give them a try.

I ordered the black fabric since my windows are black.

Shipping was rather quick.

I attached the snaps directly to the windows.

The install was very easy. I let the snaps sit for 48 hours before installing the fabric.

Correct measurement is the hardest part of the install.

I am very pleased with the finished product. I can see out easily and still able to open the windows when needed.

I used an infrared thermometer and got 15 - 16 degree reduction in heat, same as the foil, but I can now see out.

Would recommend this product.

Very Satisfied
EZ Snap Product: RV Window Shades

Where I’m parked with my RV we have to pay electricity.

Since I’ve put EZ Snap window shades my bill is so much less than my co-worker. My bill was $136.00 compared to over $200.00 for my co-workers.

I’m very happy with my purchase.

Thanks,
Very Satisfied

EZ Snap® Team - Happy to hear that EZ Snap is saving you some money... thanks for letting us know.

Great Product
EZ Snap Product: Exterior Window Shades

Great product but postage is ridiculous if you just want a few parts.
Ken S.

EZ Snap® Team - Thanks for your feedback Ken. Unfortunately, if we ship by mail, many times Pins will be broken when the shipment arrives, versus shipping by courier. Also, the mail system can take up to 3 weeks in some cases for the shipment to arrive with no way to track the shipment.

EZ Snap charges $14.95 on an order of 60 sets. This size shipment costs EZ Snap approx $20 to $22 and we subsidize the shipping cost for our customers.

The best time to order extra Fasteners is with a kit... the price per Fastener with a kit is $1.08 and purchases over $225 qualify for free shipping.

EZ Snap was easy to use
EZ Snap Product: RV Window Shades

EZ snap was easy to use... we put it on the inside of our motorhome front window.

Fits good and we just roll it up out of the way when driving.

Never have to go out in the rain to install.

EZ Snap® Team - Thanks Doris... It may be easier to install RV Shades inside, but please keep in mind that Shades must be installed on the outside for maximum heat reduction.

Product Works Great
EZ Snap Product: RV Window Shades

I purchased a snap replacement kit including adhesive for hard-to-attach surfaces. When the shipment arrived, it was missing the adhesive.

Customer service quickly shipped the missing adhesive and an extra one too.

I would highly recommend this product because the product works great and the responsiveness of their customer service.

EZ Snap® Team - Thanks for the feedback Sandra.

The difference in temperature was remarkable.
EZ Snap Product: RV Window Shades

Hello,

Well, having studied ways to reduce the awful heat in my new 5th wheel trailer I first cut some 1" thick silver sided insulation I bought from Home Depot, wonderful results (if you do not want to use a window to look out of!). Then, off to the web where I found EZ Snap.

My request for help on planning size and needs was quickly answered and I received my items a week or less later.

I had studied several YouTube videos and got to work. I did two large side windows one day, the large back one next and finally had time for some smaller ones.

The difference in temperature was remarkable. I will absolutely recommend this product.

We are living in this unit until our new home is built, then we will use it to travel when I retire next year.

A significant and welcome improvement.
EZ Snap Product: RV Window Shades

My experience with EZ Snap was excellent. The sales team (much thanks to Troy) patiently worked with me through multiple iterations on the project.

I found the installation to be relatively simple and straightforward. For the smaller rounded edged windows I created a template and used it to cut out the screens to exact size.

We saw a 15-20 drop in surface temperatures in our RV (dark brown faux leather couch and dining table) A significant and welcome improvement.

We’ve received many positive comments from neighbors. Some haven’t even noticed the change.

Here are pics of the 7 windows we covered with black screen.

EZ Snap RV Window Shade Review from B Buteau Black Shades

This is a picture from the inside looking out. Please note we removed the inner RV screens because the breeze was cut down significantly with both screens in place. It’s still reduced with only the EZ Snap screen in place but it’s acceptable

EZ Snap RV Window Shade Review from B Buteau View from Inside

The following 2 pictures show the use of white screen on 2 of our 3 season room windows. Had to use the 3M snaps because the metal snaps originally purchased interfered with the movement of the sliding windows on the porch.

EZ Snap RV Window Shade Review from B Buteau White Window Shades

EZ Snap RV Window Shade Review from B Buteau White Shades

The following 2 pics show the use of the white screen placed into a standard screen frame. The metal snaps didn’t work because they interfered with the sliding windows. We then used the 3M snaps and although it looked good we found the reduction in ocean breeze to be too much, plus we couldn’t just remove the door screen because the 3M snaps hold the EZ Snap screen away from the surface so bugs could get in. So we removed the door screen from its frame and used the white screen we’d cut and with some effort installed it in the screen frame. If I’d known I was going to do this I would have cut a larger piece of screen and trimmed the edges with a razor knife. All that said I think it came out very nice, very clean looking.

Made an incredible difference...
EZ Snap Product: RV Window Shades

We purchased EZ Snap for our 5th wheel because we are staying in Yuma Arizona during the summer.

It has made an incredible difference, we are able to keep the RV five degrees cooler since installing EZ Snap.

We used the 3M stick on snaps, which went on easily. I do recommend assembling the base and post portions of snaps before application, it is much easier at a table than on a ladder outside.

I applied stick on snaps one morning and cut and applied material the next morning.

Blocks sun extremely well and we can see out of the windows well.

We believe EZ Snap will pay for itself in two years! Looks great and helps keep RV cooler!

We would highly recommend EZ Snap to keep RV cool and looking great!

Provide daytime privacy while still allowing us to see out...
EZ Snap Product: RV Window Shades

After 5yrs of messing with modified automotive reflective window shades held to the inside of the windshield with velcro (that only partially helped with the amount of light that came in, but completely obscured our view to the outside and had minimal heat rejection), I finally ordered the EZ snap Direct RV window shade kit.

Ordering was easy, just measured the windshield and cab door windows on my 2007 Haulmark Class 8 conversion and added a little extra for buffer/mis-measurement. I requested that half of my adhesive studs be black and the other half white, which was no problem.

I would recommend ordering an extra primer pen (I ordered two for my install and really should have had 3), as they dry out almost immediately if not being applied.

Order arrived in a timely manner, only to sit in the garage for over a month waiting for a gap in my schedule and appropriate weather to coincide. I installed the adhesive studs the day before I left to go to work for a week and then then the next weekend I was home my wife and I finished installing the shades (I let her wield the scissors for trimming around corners and mounting brackets, she has way steadier hands than me).

I chose to install the windshield studs directly to the glass on the windshield as this would give me the most even surface, allowing for less chance of wrinkling.

On the doors I put the studs around the outside edge of the window opening. We rough cut a slightly oversized piece of mesh for each window to make it easier to position it on the studs, then working from top to bottom and left to right, we got the mesh in place without any excess wrinkling (curved or uneven surfaces add to the challenge) and then marked and trimmed to final shape, readjusted the position of a couple of pins to remove some minor waves from the mesh and finished by snapping on the caps to finish the project.

While we just finished the install today I am already happy with the appearance (look just about as good as the custom fit/sewn mesh shades that my in-laws have on their class A diesel pusher, but substantially cheaper) and ease of install. They limit the light that comes in but still allows us to look out through them, and if we need some extra privacy we still have the fabric curtains that Haulmark installs at build time.

We have now been in our coach for 4.5 weeks and are very happy with them. They provide daytime privacy while still allowing us to see out and provide a substantial temperature reduction in the cab area of our class 8 (semi truck) conversion. They provide enough heat rejection that I am considering purchasing enough to make shades for all of the windows in our coach.

Thank you,
Dave and Jennifer

It has done as advertised...
EZ Snap Product: RV Window Shades

I am pleased with the performance of the product. It has done as advertised and reduced energy use, had foil bubble wrap in window previously and it is very nice to see out of the converted windows now.

But-

Installation of product as instructed resulted in a deficiency of snaps to utilize the mesh. Have two windows (big) and one small one on rig done as instructed. Two other smaller windows with Minimal snaps just to get it on the rig.

--and mesh for the other planned three windows I have no snaps.

I plan on ordering more snaps to install on rest of planned windows and strengthen the minimal ones.

I am a little disappointed with the hardware amount included in the kit.

Installed on an average fifth wheel (Big Country 32 1/2 foot ). If you follow the instructions to have two snaps at the corners of large windows And the 10 inch min. spacing you do not have enough snaps for average RV application.

I would highly recommend.
EZ Snap Product: RV Window Shades

Great product!

I purchased the materials to do the windows in our RV that is parked on a permanent site in Silver Springs FL. I covered three windows that get the hot afternoon sun.

These screens have made a world of difference. I am very happy with how they work and the ease of the insulation of the product.

I questioned the 3M snaps holding up so I talked to a representative on the snaps. They explained to me how and why they would hold. That put my mind at ease hearing it from them and not just the company selling the product (EZ Snap).

I worked with Troy and he was there for every phone call and email to answer any questions. He explained everything to me every step of the way. I would highly recommend.

Excellent product will recommend to everyone.
EZ Snap Product: RV window shades

The window screens were used for a 5th wheel rear window and back two windows.

Easy install and maintenance.

I had problems with a washing company knocking off the studs and snaps. Just ordered extra ones.

The window screens are great. We had setting sun in Florida. These screens brought the temperature down 10-15 degrees.

Got sap on the rear one. It's hard to get it off even with denatured alcohol.

Excellent product will recommend to everyone.

Love My EZ Snap RV Shades
EZ Snap Product: RV Window Shades

I love my EZ Snap RV window coverings, and sing their praises to all I meet. I'm stationary for the most part.

I bought enough screening for my all-day sun-side in summer 2017; it cut my electricity bill by 35%.

Recently moved across country and bought screening for the other side and front windshield of my Class A. Sun on the rig all sides now at different times of the day.

My electric bill compared to my neighbour with a similar size rig? $52 less! Plus, the privacy aspect is wonderful.

by Ed on Exterior RV Window Shades
EZ Snap Product: RV Window Shades

I don't get it. I see nothing but rave reviews for this product. I purchased enough to do all 3 windows on the sun setting side of my 5er, we've only had 70 & 80 degree days here in Oregon and the heat from the slide on the sun side is terrible. I've even had to close my day & night shades on the inside. WASTE OF MONEY AND TIME !!!

EZ Snap® Team - Thanks for your feedback Ed. Sorry to hear this didn't work out in your case. As suggested in the review, your results are not typical. Many RV's have very little insulation in the slide out walls, roof and floor, so heat from the sun will penetrate those areas and create heat inside the RV.

by Vern Pich on Exterior RV Window Shades
So Simple & Effective
EZ Snap Product: RV Window Shades

Thank you EZ Snap for making Sun and UV protection so simple and effective.

Last fall we purchased a new (to us) fifth wheel with a beautiful living area and a wall to wall picture window. Now parked, the window is facing almost directly south with full exposure to a beautiful forest scene but constant summer sun.

Inside shades would certainly block out the sun but the view is lost. EZ Snap was the perfect solution.

The black mesh allows complete see through but blocks the intense sun. Add to that the super easy instal alternatives and EZ Snap the absolute best alternative.

Trim to fit the window size, clean the fibreglass around the edges, attach the snaps (I chose the stick on units) install and voila you have the best of the best.

Combine this quality product with excellent customer service, follow up and prompt shipping and you are dealing with a winner company with a winner product.

If you are looking for Shading this is it.

The hardest part of the install was cutting screen. I used the 3m primer pen first. My camper is a 32RKTS Puma. I have some adhesives on the window frames and they are working just fine. I put mine 6 inches apart because I am on the bay in Matagorda TX facing west sun.

All in All easy to install. Measure twice cut once.

Still Get the Sun, But NOT the Heat
EZ Snap Product: RV Window Shades

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.

Definite Difference in Inside Temperature - Definitely Recommend
EZ Snap Product: RV Window Shades

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.

RV Shade Review S Taft Inside RV Shade Review S Taft Outside

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.

RV Shades Great Success
EZ Snap Product: Window Shades

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.

Test for EZ Snap Shades in the Hot Australian Sun
EZ Snap Product: RV Window Shades

Hi Troy,

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.

RV Shade Review Pam H Australia

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.

RV Shade Review Pam H Australia

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!!

RV Shade Review Pam H Australia

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.

Warm regards
Pam H.

EZ Snap® Team - Nice Work Pam. Thanks for sending photos of your RV Shades from Australia!

Good Purchase. Very Happy.

EZ Snap RV Shade Review from George KolbI 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.

Helps the inside stay cool...

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.

I would recommend it to anyone...

Jeff Faust RV Window Shades ReviewGreat product!

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.

Thanks,

Jeff

EZ Snap® Team - Nice install Jeff. Thanks for sending in your photo.

One of the Best Purchases for My RV
EZ Snap Product: RV Window Shades

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...

RV Cooler

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.

Highly Recommend Shades

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.

Highly recommend.

EZ Snap® Team - Thanks Pam.

Happy to hear our Shades are working for you.

Very Satisfied

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.

Drop down RV shade

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.

EZ Snap® Team - Sounds like a great idea. Maybe you can email us a few photos?

Very Pleased with Our Purchase

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.

Return of product
EZ Snap Product: RV Shade

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.

Very hot summer 2016

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.

Very Pleased with Do-it-yourself Shade Kit

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.

Could Not Be More Pleased...

John Ott RV Shades for Crank Out Windows by EZ SnapI 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.
