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.
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.
