Measuring for EZ Snap Window Shades

EZ Snap® Window Shades can be fastened to your window frames, window trim/casings, or the siding just beyond your window frames. If none of these options will work for you, Adhesive Fasteners can be installed directly onto the window glass, if necessary.

Covering the whole width of your window trim/casing with Shade Mesh is more forgiving (should you have any crooked cuts) than partially covering your trim/casing. This is especially true if the trim color is a heavily contrasting color to the shading mesh, like black shading mesh over white trim.EZ Snap Window Shade Fastener Placement

Determine Fastener Position

For shading mesh width A, measure from the center of left Fasteners, across glass, to the center of the right Fasteners, and add 1 to 2 inches.

For shading mesh height B, measure from the center of top Fasteners, down across glass, to the center of the bottom Fasteners, and add 1 to 2 inches.

Tip: Distance between the centre of each Pin to the outside edge of the Shade Mesh must be minimum 1/2 inch.

Nested Layout

If installing Shade Mesh on multiple windows, use the “Cookie Cutter” or “Tetris” method to nest your various window sizes into the 72 inch tall Shade Mesh. Windows can be rotated for the most efficient use of the EZ Snap® Shade Mesh with the least amount of waste.

Measure Twice, Cut Once 

We recommend using the EZ Snap Kit Size Calculator to figure out the most efficient layout before you start cutting your Shade Mesh.
