Measuring for Skylight Shades
EZ Snap® Skylight Shades can be fastened to your skylight frames, right beside the skylight glass, or on the vertical outside edge of the skylight frames.
If neither of these options will work for you, Adhesive Fasteners can be installed directly onto the skylight glass instead.
Determine Fastener Position
The size of each Shade will depend on where the EZ Snap Fasteners are mounted. For example, mounting 3M Adhesive Fasteners on the glass will require a smaller Shade than mounting Fasteners on the outside of the skylight frame.

What to Measure: Width & Height
Shading Mesh Width:
Measure from the center of left Fasteners, across glass, to the center of the right Fasteners, and add 1 to 2 inches.
Shading Mesh Height:
Measure from the center of top Fasteners, down across glass, to the center of the bottom Fasteners, and add 1 to 2 inches.
If installing Shade Mesh on multiple skylights, 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.
